  1. Materials Ontology Design and Development (MODD)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: OSD13C02

    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

    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. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  7. Non-Invasive, Continuous, Transdermal Glucose Monitor w/Actuator Control

    SBC: ADVANCED SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "AST proposes to develop a non-invasive methodology able to continuously monitor blood glucose concentration. As opposed to employing near infrared spectroscopy, which suffers from the limitations of sensitivity, stability, and repeatability, AST intendsto employ direct measurement of glucose, via amperometric sensors coated with glucose oxidase membranes, from minute amounts of interstitial flui ...

  8. SOF Critical Care Medical Tools

    SBC: Bio-Track Llc            Topic: N/A

    "Current commercial market offers many products that may form the basis from which to proceed, these devices were not designed with the original intent to perform in the austere environment of combat by minimally trained personnel where evacuation andaccess to higher echelons of medical care are likely to be significantly delayed. The overarching challenge will be to design robust light-weight an ...

  9. Real Time Collective Peformance Feedback for Combat

    SBC: FSCX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Army Transformation efforts and the ongoing digitization of the battlespace have created a situation where much of the data needed to create automated AAR products in training environments is now available in actual combat environments. Using AAR systemsas operational tools, we now have the opportunity to provide military organizations with AAR-like products and operational feedback in time for ...
