  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. 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. Preventing Program Hijacking via Static and Dynamic Analyses

    SBC: Zephyr Software, LLC            Topic: OSD11IA5

    To hijack the execution of a program, an attacker must overwrite the value of a return address or a function pointer (broadly defined). To prevent program hijacking, our product will provide a layered defense of these two targets, including deterministic and randomization defenses, with the ability in many cases to continue execution after a hijacking attempt is prevented. Our product toolkit incl ...

  5. Event Attribute Recognition and Labeling (EARL)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: OSD12LD5

    Existing information extraction technology can only partially address the problem of exploiting unreadably-large amounts text. When discussion of events is limited to simple, past-tense, factual descriptions of events, current NLP-based systems can ident

  6. Decision Support for Anomaly Detection and Recovery for Unmanned System (ADRUS)

    SBC: Knexus Research Corp.            Topic: OSD12AU1

    Deployment of unmanned systems continues to expand across a wide range of missions; for example, logistics and resupply missions, force application and protection, and improving battlespace awareness. Presently these unmanned systems run at the lowest of four possible levels of autonomy, that is, in a teleoperated mode, and each system typically requires multiple operators. To address this proble ...

  7. Ultra-Safe Enclosure for High Energy Density Devices: Thin Laminate Walls and Flameless Venting

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD12EP3

    The density and storage capacity benefits of lithium-ion batteries and other high-energy density storage systems make them attractive options to enable game-changing and ambitious future missions across all branches of the military. Safe packaging of these systems has somewhat lagged and as a result, a few significant events have taken place, resulting in high-profile and sometimes dramatic incide ...

  8. Active Software Defense to Reduce Threat Capability Effectiveness

    SBC: Power Fingerprinting, Inc            Topic: OSD11IA6

    In order to better protect critical infrastructure from cyber attacks, perimeter and passive defenses must be complemented with an active defense mechanism which elevates the risks, or costs, a potential attacker will face. The effectiveness of an active defense mechanism, however, is ultimately limited by its ability to detect threats fast, accurately, and reliably. For this Phase II project, we ...

  9. Analysis and Improvement of Trivalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The trend toward replacement of highly toxic chemicals with less hazardous alternatives has created the demand for replacement of chromate conversion coatings for corrosion protection of aluminum alloys. Aluminum alloys are the predominate structural material used in aircraft because of their high strength-to-weight ratios, affordability and processability. Aluminum is subject to catastrophic fail ...
