  3. Model Driven Autonomous System Demonstration and Experimentation Workbench

    SBC: Adept Analytics, LLC            Topic: OSD12AU2

    To achieve high-level strategic goals, DoD elements are investigating the potential of adding autonomy to unmanned assets. An autonomous system must be able to amend its"pre-loaded"plan by rapidly assessing the current situation, examining a number of possible outcomes, initiating a course of action and continuing to reassess its decisions and plan. Currently, data needed for training autonomous m ...

  8. Remote Sensing of CWAs Using Color Changing Sensor Tags and RFID Detector

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: DTRA102006

    Rapid identification of these warfare modes, particularly Chemical Warfare Agents (CWAs), is vital to protecting U.S. armed forces personnel and their assets. Most quantitative and accurate methods for CWA identification utilize bulky and expensive equipment that require specific technical expertise for data collection and analysis. A major limitation to using existing detection equipment i ...
