  1. Materials Ontology Design and Development (MODD)


    Semantically Linked Data is widely seen as a revolutionary approach for maximizing the usefulness of existing and future information. In the materials domain, semantically linked materials data holds considerable promise with the ability to facilitate materials research and product development, improve communication, and open up avenues for new types of materials informatics. But realizing the pro ...

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


    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. STTR Phase II: Security Monitoring and Intrusion Detection in SDR and CR Using Power Fingerprinting

    SBC: Power Fingerprinting, Inc            Topic: ES

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is the development of an innovative cyber security solution based on Power Fingerprinting (PFP) for vulnerable wireless networking equipment and smart grid infrastructure. PFP can prevent well-funded adversaries from compromising these critical systems and operate without being discovered. The PFP monitor can assess the integrity directly on ...

  10. STTR Phase I: Consolidated biosynthesis of methyl ethyl ketone from cellulosic biomass

    SBC: Gate Fuels Incorporated            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project proposes to develop a new low-cost platform for the production of methyl ethyl ketone directly from pretreated cellulosic biomass in a single step using a novel recombinant cellulolytic Bacillus subtilis strain. Methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), also referred to as 2-butanone, is the second most important commercial ketone after acetone. MEK ...
