  1. Development of a Micro-glider for Oceanographic Air-Sea Interaction Sampling

    SBC: MRV Systems, LLC            Topic: N14AT020

    This proposal is a collaborative effort between MRV Systems and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The goal is to develop a new, small, inexpensive autonomous vehicle to investigate mixed layer dynamics and turbulent mixing. The preliminary Phase I design, a Diagonally Operating Platform (DOP), is a profiling float with moveable fins. DOP will turn toward an intended direction within a few ...

  2. Compact robust testbed for cold-atom clock and sensor applications

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: N13AT018

    Our goal in this Phase II effort is to construct and test a compact, robust testbed for generating laser-cooled strontium atoms on a mobile platform. The focus of the Phase I effort was designing and fabricating an ovenized strontium source that also serves as a 2D+ MOT cell. In Phase II, we will integrate the strontium source into an all-glass-and-silicon vacuum system maintained by a miniature i ...

  4. 3D Acoustic Model for Geometrically Constrained Environments

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N16AT018

    Systems that operate in constrained environments depend on the acoustics in several ways. Harbor defense systems detect intruders (people and/or vessels) by either listening for their noises (passively) or by pinging on them and detecting their echoes (actively). Furthermore, such systems may also form the equivalent of an underwater cell phone network using sound to carry the information. The aco ...

  5. Computational Methods for Dynamic Scene Reconstruction

    SBC: Robotic Research LLC            Topic: N16AT017

    Reconstruction of dynamic scenes is at the limits of the state of the art. It is still challenging to accurately reconstruct models in static scenes. Dynamic scenes add a list of challenges that further complicate the problem:separating the dynamic objects from the motion created by the camera motionMorphological changes to the dynamic object itself. Not only is the system moving, but it is actual ...

  7. Improved Synthesis and Characterization of New Energetic Compounds

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N16AT021

    The Navy seeks new energetic and oxidizing ingredients for use in propellant and explosive formulations of modern weapons systems. With recent developments in the design and synthesis of new energetic molecules, we have the opportunity to take the steps needed before these materials can successfully transition to use in next generation propulsion and ordnance systems. TDA Research and the Universi ...

  8. Embedded Space Analytics

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: N16AT020

    Navy needs a real-time graph embedding tool for analyzing huge graphs (millions of nodes and billions of edges) from diverse sources. However, current approaches cannot provide dynamic and scalable graph analytics to show the military value of tactical data. In this project, InfoBeyond advocates EStreaming (Embedding & Streaming) for scalable and efficient graph streaming. EStreaming promotes big ...

  10. Object Cueing Using Biomimetic Approaches to Visual Information Processing

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: N14AT008

    Thousands of years of evolution have produced the human vision system that computers cannot replicate well. Humans are still unsurpassed in their ability to search for objects in visual scenes. To successfully detect objects in cluttered scenes, the human brain is thought to rely on multiple factors: prior probabilities of object occurrence, global scene statistics and object co-occurrence. Machin ...
