SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC Topic: AF14AT13
This work will focus on the development of monolithic SWIR focal plane array technologies using CMOS or CMOS compatible fabrication technology. This will be realized on a Silicon substrate and incorporate APD+TIA arrays and be scalable to Megapixel arrays and coherent receiver operation for capture of the full optical wavefront vector information.STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC Topic: AF17AT027
To address the challenge of long-term tracking, through extended occlusions and significant appearance changes, we propose to continue developing DC-CAT, a Deep Convolutional neural network (CNN) based Confuser-Aware high value target (HVT) Tracker.The DC-CAT system combines a state-of-the-art CNN-based adaptive HVT tracker with a CNN-based pre-trained generic target detector, in a deep-feature-ai ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: APPLIED DEFENSE SOLUTIONS, INC. Topic: AF17CT02
This is a prototype system that will take raw observation data, detect and characterize maneuvers, and use reinforcement learning to understand and react to evasive RSO behaviors in near real time. This will provide a framework to evaluate autonomous behavior strategies, such a safety, effectiveness, and robustness to manipulation. This work will enable surveillance operators to distinguish betwee ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC Topic: AF17CT02
The DF&NN team has significant experience in delivering Space Domain Awareness tools. These tools will be applied to 2 years of GEO ephemeris data of active satellites at DF&NN. The RDESB prototype will reduce the risk in rapidly discovering the behavioral patterns of potentially evasive and/or ambiguous active resident space objects. RDESB will detect non-Keplerian behavior in ephemeris data for ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
Adaptive Markov Inference Game Optimization (AMIGO) for Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite BehaviorsSBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC. Topic: AF17CT02
Space superiority requires space protection and space situational awareness (SSA), which rely on rapid and accurate space object behavioral and operational intent discovery. The focus of this project is to develop a stochastic approach for rapid discovery of evasive satellite behaviors. Designing the innovative decision support tool has numerous challenges: (i) partial observable actions; (ii) eva ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: APPLIED DEFENSE SOLUTIONS, INC. Topic: AF17CT05
In response to the challenges described in AF173-CT05, Applied Defense Solutions (ADS) and the University of New Mexico (UNM) (equivalently, the ADS Team) propose to research and develop innovative validation and verification (V&V) algorithms for spacecraft GN&C. The ADS Team is unique in that it brings operational flight GN&C software experience (ADS) with cutting edge research on algorithm V&V ( ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC Topic: AF17BT001
The widespread use of Aqueous Film Forming Foams (AFFF) at DOD facilities for firefighting, training, and fire suppression systems has resulted in numerous contamination sites. The perfluoroalkyl (PFA) compounds used in the AFFF, such as perfluoroalkyl sulfonates (PFOS) and perfluoroalkyl carboxylic acids (PFOA) are extremely stable in the environment and have been shown to be resistant to typical ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Quinc.tech Inc. Topic: AF18AT001
The Biomagnetics Micro Dosimetry System (BMDS) program will design, model, and simulate a microdosimetry system that can measure and create a three dimensional map of weak radiofrequency signals in biological organisms. The heart of the BMDS project is the front end called a Quinc, that delivers very sensitive, broad band measurements with high spatial resolution.The Quinc based front end is a val ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Kord Technologies, Inc. Topic: AF18AT004
Design analysis of parachute recovery systems has relied on a combination of core design principles, historical empirical data, and extensive testing for decades. Parachute motion involves complex phenomena involving porous bluff-body aerodynamics and highly deformable cloth. The proposed project is a plugin for the DoD CREATE-AV Kestrel simulation suite that will enable high-fidelity simulations ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Metalenz Inc. Topic: AF18AT005
Metasurfaces are a fascinating new direction for producing small form factor optical elements that can be directly integrated with a variety of sensors and illumination sources. Metasurfaces have received extensive attention for their potential applications in imaging optics as they enable significantly more compact camera modules with enhanced functionality and because the unit processes to creat ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
