  1. 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

  2. VisualAnalytix: Identification and Visualization of Interactions and their Consequences within Complex Systems

    SBC: INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: OSD12ER1

    Complex systems are inherently difficult to analyze because of the hidden interactions and dependencies among components. These interactions and dependencies often produce unpredictable, potentially detrimental overall system behaviors (outcomes). Traditi

  3. Fusing Uncertain and Heterogeneous Information Making Sense of the Battlefield

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: OSD12LD2

    Decision analysts are faced with an ever-increasing amount of information from a large number of sensors and other data sets. This information can include radar, wide-area motion imagery (WAMI), electronic support measures, and other sensors or information available to the analyst. Analysts are therefore faced with the tasks of scouring an overwhelmingly large amount of data for the information of ...

  4. Landing Zones Identification (LZI)

    SBC: AMERICAN GNC CORPORATION            Topic: OSD12AU3

    Small Unmanned Air Systems (SUAS) are currently used by the U.S military for a wide variety of critical missions; however, there remains much research and work to enhance autonomy in these platforms. One capability specified by the U.S. Office of the Secr

  5. Natural Dialogue based Gesture Recognition for Unmanned Aerial System Carrier Deck Operations

    SBC: Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: OSD12HS3

    Communication on the carrier flight deck is primarily gestural because of the extreme noise, which has led to a well established vocabulary of gestures that deck handlers and Navy pilots use to communicate. An unmanned aircraft controlled by this gesture

  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. Exploiting Unobtrusive Psychophysiological Sensors and Work Context to Enhance Monitoring of Human-Automation Interaction

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: OSD141AU1

    We propose a three-pronged approach to advancing the state of the art in human state assessment. First, we will employ a small number of complementary sensors that can be naturally integrated into the work setting without complicated setup requirements. By integrating unobtrusively into the operator"s environment, we hope to minimize the artificiality that can impact operator behavior. Second, in ...

  8. Compact, High Capacity Parallel Optical Memories

    SBC: Accuwave Corp.            Topic: N/A

    In this proposed SBIR program, Accuwave will investigate and demonstrate architectures for compact hologrpahic storage using materials and system innovations to reduce complexity and improve performance. Crosstalk, data formatting, input/output interfaces, and other relevant parameters will be characterized. Both wavelength and angle multiplexing, as well as its combination, will be used to prov ...

  9. HLA Federation Implementation Tools

    SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The            Topic: N/A

    The Defense Modeling and Simulation Office (DMSO) has developed the High Level Architecture (HLA) as one of the principle components of a DoD-wide Common Technical Framework for modeling and simulation (M&S). Unlike previous distributed simulation technologies such as DIS and SIMNET, HLA provides federation developers, via the Object Model Template (OMT), the means to define the structure and for ...

  10. 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 ...
