  1. CERTAIN: Certainty Enrichment via Relational and Temporal Analytical Indexing of Networks

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB123002

    Efficient and accurate indexing is fundamental to the Big Data enterprise, but traditional indexing techniques are often foiled by noise and missing information. Aptima proposes CERTAIN (Certainty Enrichment via Relational and Temporal Analytical Indexing of Networks), a solution that advances several areas of large dataset indexing and applies them to the domain of cyber analysis. We will develop ...

  2. Innovative Passivation to Increase the Power at Which Laser Diode Fails

    SBC: SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY, INC            Topic: SB122005

    The objective of this effort is to increase the power of 20% fill-factor laser diode (LD) bars from the present state-of-the-art (SOA) of 60-70 W/bar to 600 W/bar a"DARPA hard"ten-fold increase. This revolutionary and disruptive increase in the power/bar will be accomplished by increasing the power at which SOA LDs fail, namely, increasing the threshold for catastrophic optical damage (COD) of t ...

  3. High-resolution, Ultra-sensitive Magnetic Imaging Using an Ensemble of Nitrogen-Vacancy (NV) Centers in Diamond

    SBC: Quantum Diamond Technologies Inc            Topic: SB122002

    Ensembles of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond allow the detection of weak magnetic fields under ambient conditions, with wide-ranging applications in the physical and life sciences. We have previously demonstrated high-sensitivity and high-resolution NV-diamond magnetic field imaging devices in a university laboratory setting. The proposed SBIR project will transition these research resul ...

  4. Controlling Antibiotic Resistance by Vaccinating Bacterial Populations

    SBC: Ginkgo BioWorks            Topic: SB122001

    The prevalence of antibiotic resistant bacteria has risen dramatically over the past decades with over 70% of hospital bacterial infections harboring resistance to one or more classes of antibiotics. To date, the rise of drug resistant pathogens has been addressed by improved containment practices, judicious use of antibiotic treatments, and government-sponsored antibiotic research and development ...

  5. FOliage Communications Simulation (FOCS) Framework

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: SB122007

    Reliable communications are essential for real-time situational awareness, sensor command, control planning and data access throughout the entire battle space for the warfighters. RF communications in forests, jungles and triple canopy environments (those with both an overstory and understory) are challenged by severe multipath and attenuation effects thereby limiting the warfighters"access to cri ...

  6. Handheld Intelligent Tutors Personalized for Individual Training (HITPOINT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB122004

    Training first responders to efficiently select and effectively carry out emergency medical procedures in dynamic, highly stressful, and novel environments remains a challenge. Many traditional training techniques focus on frequent repetition and memorization of basic lifesaving tasks. However, responders need an expert knowledge of the underlying anatomy and reasoning behind those tasks to effect ...

  7. Foliage Propagation Model Development to Support New Communications Concepts

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: SB122007

    Systems & Technology Research (STR) together with our partner, The Ohio State University ElectroScience Laboratory (OSU/ESL), is pleased to provide this proposal to develop foliage propagation modeling algorithms and techniques to support new communications concepts. Our innovative approach to this problem will combine efficient computational electromagnetic methods (CEM) that capture the salient ...

  8. Ultra-Bright Diode Laser Emitters for Pumping High-Power Fiber Amplifiers

    SBC: TeraDiode, Inc.            Topic: SB122006

    There is a compelling need for scaling fiber lasers and amplifiers to higher power and energy for industrial and military applications. The primary scaling roadblock today is the very limited brightness of diode laser pumps. We propose to produce the highest brightness diode laser pump sources for fiber amplifiers demonstrated to date. TeraDiode will build high efficiency pump lasers at 976-nm fo ...

  9. A Tool for Agent-Based System Produced Emergent Networks (ASPEN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB112004

    Social media is an increasingly important way for people to communicate, but interpreting the large and complex social networks that emerge from social media is challenging. A promising approach is to build synthetic networks based on realistic behaviors that mimic the form and structure of real networks, and then infer behaviors that underlie the real networks from the models used to generate the ...

  10. Microgames for Acquiring and Rehearsing Cognitive Schemas for Perception (MARCS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N112162

    Throughout their history, Marines have been targeted, or hunted, by snipers, terrorists, and other adversaries. The USMC has implemented the Combat Hunter Program to better counter these threats by teaching Marines to be the hunter, rather than the hunted. Combat Hunter skills include establishing baselines, or schemas, that identify what shouldand should notbe expected in combat settings. Existin ...
