  6. Advanced Verification Toolset for Learning-Based UAS Operating in Uncertain Environments

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: OSD13HS2

    This effort proposes to develop a toolset to evaluate the effectiveness of a safety-controller that monitors a learning-based autonomous control system. The traditional use of deterministic verification techniques for real-time monitoring is not feasible in the presence of uncertainty. This effort would advance the recommended verification techniques to include non-deterministic approaches. The ...

  7. Virtual Verification Test Bed for Robust Autonomous Software Operation in Complex, Unknown Environments

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: OSD13HS2

    Unmanned Autonomous Systems (UAS) are complex systems that exhibit a broad array of behaviors in a wide range of missions and environments. They can change their behaviors over time so the UAS rigorously tested at the range is not the same as the one operating in the field. Current testing methods are inadequate to verify that they are safe to operate in close proximity with humans. Testing Robust ...

  8. Combined Approaches for Verification and Validation of Run Time Protected Systems

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: OSD13HS2

    Barron Associates has assembled a team of researchers that include Dr. Sayan Mitra of the University of Illinois and Dr. Ufuk Topcu of the University of Pennsylvania. They will spearhead three complimentary investigations into the development of verification and validation (V & V) approaches for adaptive systems protected by run time assurance (RTA) mechanisms. Two of these approaches involve us ...

  10. Deep Analytics for Data in Cyber-Physical Systems

    SBC: VIGILANT CYBER SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: OSD13LD1

    Visual Analytics Managers (VAMs) for Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) will allow users to gain insight into the CPS with state-of-the-art analytics and artificial intelligence and provide human-in-the-loop interaction with the CPS. Our VAM toolkit builds around a Scala Akka actor framework, allowing designers to define the sensors and actuators present in the CPS, select from a rich set of analytic ...
