  1. A Design Automation Tool for Integrated Nanophotonics based on Compact Modeling and Model Order Reduction

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD13C05

    Existing physics-based device simulation tools are prohibitively expensive computationally, and therefore ill-suited for parametric analysis and design optimization of photonic integrated circuits (PIC). The proposed effort aims to develop and demonstrate an innovative, easy-to-use simulation tool for accurate, fast circuit/system analysis of PICs. The salient aspects of the proposed solution are: ...

  2. Operators Context and Trust in Automation Visualization (OCTAV) Tool

    SBC: PACIFIC SCIENCE & ENGINEERING GROUP, INC.            Topic: OSD13HS5

    Pacific Science & Engineering Group (PSE) proposes to design, develop, and demonstrate a prototype human-autonomous system tool & #208;Operators Context and Trust in Automation Visualization (OCTAV) & #208; that will support improved transparency, trust, and human-machine team performance. OCTAV will automatically monitor human and autonomous system team context and task, visualize context-based s ...

  3. A Hybrid Systems Approach to Intelligent Information Management in Human-Automation Interaction

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: OSD13HS5

    A formal approach to the management of information involved in human-automation interactions is proposed. The mathematical formalism is enabled by employing the notion of hybrid systems. The information management involves ensuring correct information flow and shared cognition between human operators and machines. It is envisioned that the proposed algorithms will formalize the analysis of human-a ...

  4. Human-Centric Training and Assessment System for Cyber Situational Awareness

    SBC: Scalable Network Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD12T08

    The goal of the proposed work is to develop a human-centric training and assessment system for cyber situation awareness. The envisioned system will enable instructors to define training goals, design lesson plans, assign students roles in teams, and observe students performance, record events and interactions for scoring. The instructor/students can place tags (time or event) to roll back or repl ...

  5. First-principles-based framework for discovery and design of sustainable non-rare-earth high-temperature alloy systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD12T06

    The aim of this STTR program is to develop protocols to discover rare-earth-free/rare-earth-lean magnetic alloys for replacing rare earth (RE) -based alloys for reducing the dependence of supply from China. The development of non-RE high temperature magnetic materials is very challenging. In Phase I, CFDRC in collaboration with its university partner has demonstrated a proof-of-concept computation ...

  6. VisualAnalytix: Identification and Visualization of Interactions and their Consequences within Complex Systems

    SBC: INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: OSD12ER1

    Complex systems are inherently difficult to analyze because of the hidden interactions and dependencies among components. These interactions and dependencies often produce unpredictable, potentially detrimental overall system behaviors (outcomes). Traditi

  7. Fusing Uncertain and Heterogeneous Information Making Sense of the Battlefield

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: OSD12LD2

    Decision analysts are faced with an ever-increasing amount of information from a large number of sensors and other data sets. This information can include radar, wide-area motion imagery (WAMI), electronic support measures, and other sensors or information available to the analyst. Analysts are therefore faced with the tasks of scouring an overwhelmingly large amount of data for the information of ...

  8. Landing Zones Identification (LZI)

    SBC: AMERICAN GNC CORPORATION            Topic: OSD12AU3

    Small Unmanned Air Systems (SUAS) are currently used by the U.S military for a wide variety of critical missions; however, there remains much research and work to enhance autonomy in these platforms. One capability specified by the U.S. Office of the Secr

  9. Natural Dialogue based Gesture Recognition for Unmanned Aerial System Carrier Deck Operations

    SBC: Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: OSD12HS3

    Communication on the carrier flight deck is primarily gestural because of the extreme noise, which has led to a well established vocabulary of gestures that deck handlers and Navy pilots use to communicate. An unmanned aircraft controlled by this gesture

  10. Exploiting Unobtrusive Psychophysiological Sensors and Work Context to Enhance Monitoring of Human-Automation Interaction

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: OSD141AU1

    We propose a three-pronged approach to advancing the state of the art in human state assessment. First, we will employ a small number of complementary sensors that can be naturally integrated into the work setting without complicated setup requirements. By integrating unobtrusively into the operator"s environment, we hope to minimize the artificiality that can impact operator behavior. Second, in ...
