  1. Nautical Evaluation of Mammal Observations (NEMO)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB162015

    To protect marine mammals from ship strikes and sonar exposure, teams of human watchstanders maintain a tedious, costly, and daylight-only visual lookout. However, manned search is impossible on unmanned vessels like DARPAs ACTUV. Automated video search can provide affordable surface detections without human fatigue, and automated acoustic search can provide detections below the surface, but both ...

  2. Near-Surface Whale Detection from Autonomous Ships Using Asynchronous Sensor Fusion System (ASSIST)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB162015

    SSCI, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and Olin College of Engineering propose to develop, implement and perform initial simulation testing of the ASSIST (Asynchronous Sensor fuSIon SysTem) for near-surface whale detection. ASSIST is an information fusion approach which will integrate and process information from sonar, thermal imaging sensor, radar, and an information service such as the Right ...

  3. Autonomous Detection of Near-Surface Marine Mammals

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: SB162015

    STR is teamed with Sercel Incorporated to address the challenge of automated mammal monitoring. Sercel has developed a commercial product, QuietSea, evolved for use by the oil industrys seismic community for mammal monitoring. Sercel complements STRs considerable experience in fielding advanced prototype sonar systems. With this combined experience, the STR team will design and develop a mix of ac ...

  5. Open Source CAusal Reasoning (OSCAR)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB163008

    In this proposal, SSCI will develop the Open Source CAusal Reasoning (OSCAR) framework to help assess the effectiveness of deterrence measures in the Gray Zone. The Gray Zone is defined as adversarial interactions among actors that remain below the thres...

  7. A Low Work Function Thermionic Conversion Electrode for Space Power Generation

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: SB171004

    The conversion of heat to power has proven to be vital in flight missions where solar power generation is not an option. Radioisotope thermoelectric generators that converted heat produced by a decaying nuclear source to power have been used on numerous ...

  8. SARAN: A System for Android Application Interposition

    SBC: Aarno Labs LLC            Topic: SB171006

    We propose to develop a new system, SARAN, to transparently, and efficiently, instrument Android applications. SARAN supports the transparent instrumentation of entire Android APKs (i.e., both DEX bytecode and native libraries). DEX bytecode is instrumented using a static binary decompilation that lifts the bytecode into an intermediate representation that facilitates program analysis and transfor ...

  9. Ultra-Compact Power Conditioning System for High Power RF Transmitters

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SB171010

    Vacuum Electronic Devices (VEDs) represent the most compact and efficient means of generating high power RF available today. Unfortunately, the legacy electronics required to operate these VEDs remain large, heavy, and often unreliable. The transition to...

  10. Streaming Feature Learning (SIFTER)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB171011

    Despite several commercial deployments and successes, current recommender systems require designers to hand tune features describing the data, which then remain static for months or years. Since modern applications increasingly rely on streaming data, the next generation of defense, intelligence and commercial recommender systems would need to automate the continuous updating and tuning of feature ...
