  1. Spacecraft Fault Detection Identification & Causation Using Machine Learning

    SBC: XL Scientific, LLC            Topic: AF191072

    Machine learning-based Fault Detection, Identification and Recovery (FDIR) software will enable autonomous responses to faults onboard a spacecraft. By removing the human in the loop, anomalies can be addressed quickly, avoiding communication delays and long periods spent in safe mode during which the spacecraft cannot perform its mission. There are, however, several hurdles to machine learning-ba ...

  9. A Compact and Fast Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR) Spectroscopy System for Aerosol Combustion

    SBC: OPTICSLAH, LLC            Topic: DTRA182003

    To fully understand the combustion dynamics when chemical warfare agents are detonated, fast time-scale diagnostics are needed. While computational modeling may provide insight into the different processes, experimental measurements are needed to verify and validate these models. Since the detonation or combustion of chemical agents can result in optically thick fireballs, innovative techniques mu ...
