Hybrid DNN-based Transfer Learning and CNN-based Supervised Learning for Object Recognition in Multi-modal Infrared ImagerySBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: 1
On this effort Toyon Research Corp. and The Pennsylvania State University are developing deep learning-based algorithms for object recognition and new class discovery in look-down infrared (IR) imagery. Our approach involves the development of a hybrid classifier that exploits both transfer learning and semi-supervised paradigms in order to maintain good generalization accuracy, especially when li ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNational Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
SBC: EXQUADRUM INC Topic: MDA18T005
During the proposed Phase 1 research and development effort, the project team will design an innovative turbopump system for a target vehicle upper stage using “Green" liquid propellants that meet Missile Defense Agency's requirements. The use of a turbopump will result in an upper stage that has a greater than 50% improvement in delta velocity in comparison to a previously designed, pressure fe ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: WECOSO, INC. Topic: MDA17T003
West Coast Solutions (WCS), in collaboration with the Georgia Institute of Technology and Creare LLC, proposes an adaptation of our SmallSat Stirling Cryocooler (SSC) technology in response to STTR Topic MDA17-T003: High-Efficiency, Low-Volume, Space-Qualified Cryogenic-Coolers. In Phase 1 we will scale up a design currently in development for NASA to meet the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) topic re ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: Luminit LLC Topic: N18AT006
To meet the U.S. Navy, specifically PMA-201, need for nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of concrete, including evaluating its strength, material properties, and damage localization, Luminit, LLC, and Southern Illinois University (SIU) propose to develop a novel Concrete Materials Characterization (COMAC) system, combining several methods of concrete characterization into a single sensor/software com ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: ATA ENGINEERING, INC. Topic: N18BT029
Traditional approaches to accelerated fatigue testing rely on heuristic methods with thresholds based mostly on experience and engineering judgment. These methods generally do not apply to the multiaxial dynamic loading situations characteristic of most aerospace applications and often result in uncharacteristic fatigue damage and failure modes during testing. To overcome the limitations of tradit ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: N18AT009
The US Navy operates a vast fleet of combat and support vessels with complex power control systems under the control and decision authority of human operators. Several current resources such as SPY-1D radar and Vertical Launch System (VLS) and future resources such as railgun, AMDR, and high energy laser (HEL) are energy hungry, exceeding current and planned power generation capability when deploy ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
An Integrated Materials Informatics/Sequential Learning Framework to Predict the Effects of Defects in Metals Additive ManufacturingSBC: Citrine Informatics, Inc. Topic: N18AT013
In this project, Citrine Informatics and the ADAPT Center at the Colorado School of Mines propose to build an informatics-driven system to understand the effects of defects in additive manufactured parts. The entire history of each sample will be captured on this system; from specific printing parameters and details of precursor materials through to part characterizations and performance measureme ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC Topic: N18AT021
Active imaging systems are used to for imaging in degraded visual environments like that found in marine fog and other environments with a high level of attenuation and scattering from obscurants like fog, rain, smoke, and dust.These systems are still limited in range and resolution. SA Photonics is taking advantage of multiple image enhancement techniques, like wavelength tunability, pulse contro ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: P & J ROBINSON CORP Topic: N18AT018
Protocols used for communication suffer bloat from a variety of sources, such as support for legacy features or rarely used (and unnecessary) functionality. Traditionally, the Navy subscribes to a blanket adoption of a standard protocol "as is". Unnecessary features are active and can be accessed by both internal and external systems creating security vulnerabilities. PJR Corporation's (PJR's) Pha ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: MAKAI OCEAN ENGINEERING INC Topic: N18AT017
The U.S. Navy currently utilizes a number of towed systems from surface ship and submarines for sensing and communication applications. In a number of these cases, a tow cable extends either down from a surface ship or up from a submarine through the upper part of the water column where seawater temperature can be both highly variable vs. depth and dynamic in time and geographic location. Having a ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
