SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC. Topic: MDA17T002
The Department of Defense uses large-scale high-resolution federated simulations to propagate rocket vehicle trajectories. Runge-Kutta methods have served as a de-facto standard while conducting such simulations. However, there are several challenges while using Runge-Kutta methods for this task. Firstly, there should be exact time-step matching between federates, otherwise the states have to be i ...STTR Phase I 2018 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: IRIS TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION Topic: MDA17T003
The Iris Technology team which also include Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems (NGAS) and the University of Wisconsin, is attacking the problem of high-efficiency, low-volume, space-qualified cryocooler systems.The team has a firm starting point by leveraging the Northrop Grumman Microcryocooler and the Iris Technology mLCCE (Miniature Low Cost Control Electronics).TMU enhancement will start with ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: Terves LLC Topic: MDA17T004
Magnesium alloys have 35% lower density compared to aluminum, with improved temperature stability compared to high strength aluminum.They can also be fabricated with minimum gauge thicknesses considerably thinner than fiber composites, and are weldable, with much higher impact resistance.Traditional magnesium alloys, however, have had lower strengths than more developed aluminum alloys.Powder meta ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: ALPHASTAR TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS LLC Topic: MDA17T004
The Ground-Based Interceptor (GBI) missile is the weapon component of the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system that consists of a rocket booster and kinetic kill vehicle. Recently, MDA has sought technologies to improve the performance of the booster vehicle (BV). To date, studies have shown that reductions in weight have a direct impact on overall effectiveness. The current proposal aims t ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: Reservoir Labs, Inc. Topic: MDA17T002
Reservoir Labs and Johns Hopkins University will develop alternative numerical solution techniques that improve computational loading, data storage, and data integrity for rocket vehicle trajectory modeling in MDA federated simulations.The objective of this program is to develop new techniques for trajectory propagation that are more suited for use in federated simulations than traditional methods ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: HVMN Inc. Topic: SOCOM17C001
In the setting of altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive capacity degrades and can compromise both individual and team performance. This degradation is linked to falling brain energy (ATP) levels and an increased reliance on anaerobic energy production from glucose. Ketone bodies are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies have sho ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
Inhibiting Prolyl Hydroxylase to Mimic Natural Acclimatization to High Altitude to Improve Warfighter Performance at High AltitudeSBC: Research Logistics Company Topic: SOCOM17C001
Acclimatization is the long-term adjustment that humans experience when exposed for weeks or months to high altitude. Acclimatization is important in this context because a warfighter who is acclimatized to high altitude is immune to high altitude illness, has superior work capacity, and has cognitive function approaching that found at sea level. In other words, the acclimatized warfighter is opti ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
SBC: POLARIS SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: SOCOM18A001
The objective of this proposal is to develop instrumentation and algorithms for acquiring facial features for facial recognition in low- and no-light conditions.We will use cross-spectrum matching by exploiting infrared polarimetric imagery which tends to show features that match more closely visible imagery than conventional infrared.In addition to thermal infrared, we will also test subjects in ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
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
