  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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: ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Development of a Biomarker Based assay for Hepato cellular Carcinoma-- Rapid test for HCV Core Antigen

    SBC: QOOLABS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    HCV infects about 3% of the world's population and most people are unaware of the infection status. About 80% of individuals with HCV infection develop chronic hepatitis and many progress to have cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). An early diagnosis in the course of the disease not only increases the chances successful treatment, but also effectively limits further transmission of HCV ...

  8. Magneto- NanoSensor for Detection of Serum Biomarkers Associated with HepatoCellular Cancer

    SBC: Ocean Nano Tech LLC            Topic: N/A

    Liver Cancer is the sixth most common cancer and the third leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Early diagnosis of liver cancer will have a significant impact on survival by implementation of effective tratment strategies. The development of novel biomarkers in serum for liver cancer proteomics will significantly improve noninvasive for early detection of liver cancer. This proposal is to ...

  10. Lab research for the development of anti-diphetheria antibodies in humans

    SBC: Planet Biotechnology Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Diphtheria is an acute bacterial disease with a considerable case fatality rate caused by toxigenic Corynebacteria. Diphtheria toxin (DT) is the major virulence factor for these organisms. DT is synthesized and secreted as a single-polypeptide pro-enzyme that is cleaved and reduced in vivo to produce a toxic protein consisting of A and B fragments (1). DT has an estimated lethal dose for humans of ...
