  1. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: VOCI TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: AF15AT17

    ABSTRACT: Despite decades of research, machine hearing continues to be far less robust than human hearing. The difference is especially noticeable in reverberant environments which pose a critical limitation on the general utility of Human Language Technology. Voci Technologies Incorporated (Voci) is the leading small business developing accelerated Human Language Technology based solutions. Voci ...

  2. Spectrum Sensing and Sharing by Cognitive Radios in Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) Systems

    SBC: Echo Ridge, LLC            Topic: AF15AT23

    ABSTRACT: Echo Ridge (ER) proposes to design an architecture and key algorithms to support spectrum sharing for PNT that focuses on spectrally congested and high likelihood operational scenarios. The architecture defines the new functionality/necessary improvements to the PNT elements (broadcasts satellite and MGUE DSA operation), spectrum sensing elements (signal sensing detection/characterizatio ...

  4. Sol-gel Based Matrix for Increased Stability of Therapeutic Reagents

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF15AT29

    ABSTRACT: The necessity of cold-chain transport is a critical deficiency for a large number of vaccines, therapeutics, and drugs. More than 17 million people die every year from infectious diseases, particularly in the developing world. Many of these deaths could be prevented by vaccination, however heat-sensitivity and the need for cold-chain transport has resulted in underutilization of vaccines ...

  5. High Speed Electronic Device Simulator

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT33

    ABSTRACT: Wireless communications, radar, and biological detection require electronic components operating in the mm-wave and THz frequency ranges. GaAs metal semiconductor field effect transistor and nanoscale CMOS technologies have demonstrated high frequency capabilities and will likely benefit from future material systems and device architectures. The cost of exploring this wide design space c ...

  6. Enabling Moving Target Hand-off in GPS-Denied Environments

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF15AT34

    ABSTRACT: This STTR Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of distributed relative pose estimation framework that enables target handoff in a swarm of UAV platforms operating in GPS-denied and bandwidth constrained environment. In the proposed framework, UAV platforms continually update their relative pose estimates based on a variety of intra-platform and inter-platfor ...

  7. High-Performance Magnesium Alloys and Composites by Efficient Vapor Phase Processing

    SBC: Directed Vapor Technologies International, Inc.            Topic: A14AT007

    The low density of magnesium makes it of interest for the development of advanced materials having high specific strength and stiffness. Current Mg applications, however, are limited by the performance and cost/quality relationships of existing Mg-alloy systems. One approach to obtain improved Mg alloys is through the development of new alloys and/or Mg-based composite materials that are enabled t ...

  8. Innovative Unified Damage Mechanisms-Based Model to Predict Remaining Useful Life for Rotorcraft Structures

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N14AT002

    Recent studies by the PI and the Co-PI of this STTR effort have shown that aluminum alloys and stainless steel in Low Cycle Fatigue (LCF) fail upon reaching a critical entropy; claimed to be an intrinsic material property. The critical entropy has been used as damage metric for prediction of remaining useful life (RUL). Also, similar entropic concept has previously been applied to LCF of composite ...

  9. Advanced Tools for Mammalian Genome Engineering

    SBC: SynPloid Biotek LLC            Topic: ST13B001

    Recent advances in mammalian artificial chromosome design and engineering offer an alternative to existing methodologies for cellular bioengineering and address unmet needs to bioengineer more complex functionalities into human cells for subsequent commercialization. In this ST13B-001 application we propose to demonstrate utility of a novel chromosome-based gene delivery vehicle that is amenable t ...

  10. Situational Awareness as a Man-Machine Map Reduce Job

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: N13AT024

    This effort is focused on the development of a system called Situational Awareness via Mixed-initiative Universal Recognition, Analysis, and Inference (SAMURAI). SAMURAI will provide a single cloud-enabled end-to-end workflow covering the full range of data analysis from data ingest to situational assessment and decision support. As part of this workflow SAMURAI will provide the ability for automa ...
