  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 ...

  4. A Novel, Aerodynamics-augmented Continuous Ionization System for Electrostatic Collection of Bioaerosols

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD12107

    Safe and efficient ionization and filtration technology compatible to biodefense applications is of paramount importance. Current ionization methods are energy-intensive, costly, prone to ozone generation, or inefficient, and consequently ill-suited for building protection applications. To overcome these limitations, we propose to develop and demonstrate a novel bioaerosol ionization and collectio ...

  7. An automated, high throughput, resin-free device for large scale protein purification

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD12102

    Protein manufacturing is of paramount importance to chemical and biological defense applications. Existing protein purification methods primarily rely on synthetic-resin based chromatography, which is time-consuming, labor-intensive, expensive, and consequently, ill-suited for developing rapid countermeasures to chemical and biological threats. To overcome these limitations, the overall goal of th ...

  9. 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: ...
