  4. Compact CMOS-Compatible Optical Transceiver

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF14AT13

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and the research group of Professor Richard Osgood at Columbia University propose to develop a compact optical transceiver based on devices fabricated on a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) platform. The recent development of novel integrated structures in silicon including waveguides, resonators, and photodetectors will enable dramatic reductions in size, ...

  7. DREAMIT- Design, Reconfigure and Evaluate Autonomous Models in Training

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF15AT14

    Our Phase I work focused on improving modeling and simulations so that the impact of autonomous systems in the battlespace could be better understood. As we have trained our attention on Phase II, it has become increasingly clear that the work we are doing to improve the modeling and simulation of autonomous systems also provides significant leverage for the development of the intelligent behavior ...

  8. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: Minerva Systems & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF15AT17

    Automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology is in wide use today and has been successfully integrated into a number of applications. Although there are also many potential applications for automatic speaker identification (SID), SID accuracy rates are generally not sufficient for widespread use in practical applications. For high accuracy ASR and SID, the microphone must be located near the talk ...

  9. ROBUST MOVING TARGET HANDOFF IN GPS-DENIED ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT34

    Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are increasingly seen as a cornerstone in developing the future Defense infrastructure and it is critical that they collaborate efficiently and execute complex missions in denied environments. Although great progress has been made in GPS-denied navigation, the target handoff problem in GPS-denied environments has not been extensively studied. In this problem, a trac ...
