SBC: TRITON SYSTEMS, INC. Topic: ST18C002
Conventional methods for detecting pathogens, which are based on culturing the microorganism, are time-consuming and laborious. Machine learning provides an alternative path to identify pathogens using supervised learning algorithms. Most current computational tools utilize genomic or protein data to identify bacteria. These methods look for features in the whole genome that correlate to pathogeni ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
SBC: OPTIMIZATION TECHNOLOGIES, INC. Topic: MDA12T007
OptTek Systems, Inc (OptTek), proposes an affordable, effective UQ capability for both legacy and new BMDS M & S. The OptTek Team includes research institution partner Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and subcontractor RTSync Corporation (RTSync). The proposed BMDS M & S UQ capability maximizes insertability into existing and future MDA BMDS M & S-supported Event processes, analysis methods, a ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION Topic: MDA12T007
A goal of Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) is to use computer simulation of complex systems to make scientifically informed assessments for high-consequence decisions. Because end-to-end empirical data is difficult to obtain for the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS), computer simulation provides the best method for understanding BMDS capabilities against a wide range of threats.

SBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC. Topic: OSD09T004
The dependability, persistence, and versatility of unmanned systems have made them indispensable assets in today’s warfighting. As they are tasked to fulfill new missions in unpredictable, dynamic environments, they are transitioning from remote control into the realm of autonomy. Here they perform rapid and semi-autonomous behaviors, such as re-planning and re-tasking, to accomplish mission obj ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
Maneuver Prediction and Avoidance Logic For Unmanned Aircraft System Encounters with Non-Cooperative Air TrafficSBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION Topic: N13AT003
For Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) to operate seamlessly in both the U.S. National Airspace System (NAS) and abroad, it will be crucial that they possess a sense-and-avoid (SAA) capability that can ensure safe operations among maneuvering, non-cooperative aircraft. Numerica Corporation, in partnership with Johns Hopkins University, proposes to develop a set of algorithms to model the uncertaintie ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseNavy
MAVERICK: Mixed-Automation Visualizer for Emerging Relationships & Insights in Complex KnowledgeSBC: APTIMA INC Topic: MDA18T001
System-level simulations of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) generate extremely large quantities of highly multidimensional data, which analysts at the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) must explore and analyze to infer insights and relationships. Existing tools based on automated routine scripts are ill-equipped to handle the volume and complexity of these data, requiring piecemeal analysis ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP Topic: A18BT005
We propose the development of a membraneless water purification system using continuous, self-contained, vacuum-assisted diffusiophoresis. Using diffusiophoresis allows the system to clean water contaminated with particulates and bacteria without membranes or filters, while producing a stream of fresh, drinkable water. The system will operate using only electricity supplied by portable batteries/s ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: Infoscitex Corporation Topic: ST092001
There are many situations in DOD missions when soldiers could operate much more effectively if they could successfully recall previously presented information that is vital for mission execution. However, the quantity of information supplied to today’s Warfighter is constantly increasing. This is due to greater reliance on network-centric operations and the expanding range of missions Warfighter ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC Topic: A10AT004
Thermopile arrays manufactured using integrated process compatible materials and micro-machining will provide high performance with low manufacturing cost. Black Forest Engineering (BFE) teamed with Case Western Reserve University will design thermopiles using silicon based semiconductors and compare performance. Low cost thermopiles, differentially coupled with advanced BFE CMOS readout, will pr ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: Physical Engineering Corporation Topic: AF09BT39
This Phase I STTR proposal will demonstrate nanostructured “metal-black” coatings to enhance absorption by thin film solar cells. The problem is that silicon has low absorption due to its indirect gap. The opportunity is that nano-scale metallic scattering centers increase the effective optical path length and enhance the solar electric-field strength in thin-film solar cells, leading to more ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
