SBC: ONAI INC. Topic: N17AT021
We propose a multi-part system to process, understand, and summarize video streams. Our approach involves processing video and audio jointly; uses the latest advances in captioning and automatic speech-recognition to construct text narratives for the video; and uses NLP techniques to summarize and produce a reliable relevance ranking of these videos. We address all six technical challenges identif ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: NGIMAT, LLC Topic: N15AT010
In this Phase II STTR effort, nGimat will partner with the University of Kentucky (UK) and 3M/Ceradyne to continue development of W-scandate cathode composite materials. Compared to conventional M-type cathodes, these composite scandate nanomaterials will enable longer cathode lifetime by lowering the required operating temperature. nGimat is an established and successful powder manufacturing comp ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Vacuum Process Engineering, Inc. Topic: N15AT010
Vacuum Process Engineering, Inc. (VPE), in collaboration with the University of California, Davis (UC Davis), proposes to develop and quantitatively verify a large scale production process for scandate tungsten nanocomposite powder to be used in high current density and long life cathodes during the Phase II effort. The plan for implementation of the large scale production process at VPE with powd ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Bioenno Tech, LLC Topic: N17AT011
Development of a new generation of high-energy-density capacitors for power conversion/conditioning systems will be beneficial to reduce the size, weight, and cost of resultant transmit and receive (T/R) modules in modern radar and electronic warfare transmitters. Among capacitor technologies available, multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) and polymer-ceramic composite dielectric based capacitors ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC Topic: N17AT017
As submarine threats from adversary countries continue to rise, the U.S. Navy must maintain and expand its anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capabilities. Warfighter readiness is the linchpin of the Navys ASW strategy, but the complexity of the ASW domain necessitates time-consuming training, and practical experiences to transfer those skills to the operational environment. An innovative training appro ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
Integrated learning-based and regularization-based super resolution for extreme MWIR image enhancementSBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC Topic: N17AT016
OKSI and Northwestern University propose to develop a super-resolution (SR) methodology for mid-wave infrared (MWIR) imagery that produces extreme enhancement of low resolution images. Image enhancement of at least 4x is expected using a standard imaging system. OKSI and Northwestern University will also develop a detector-limited imaging system specifically designed to be used with the SR methodo ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC Topic: N16AT024
SA Photonics is pleased to propose the SOCRATES free space optical communication and sensing system featuring the Photonic Optical Multicast Mast Unit (POMMU). SOCRATES enables 360 degree multicast capability of high bandwidth communication in addition to threat search and tracking capability. SA Photonics will team with Prof. Michael Kudenov at North Carolina State University who will investigate ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
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 (peopleand/or vessels) by either listening for their noises (passively) or by pinging on them and detecting their echoes (actively). Furthermore, suchsystems may also form the equivalent of an underwater cell phone network using sound to carry the information. The acous ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc. Topic: N17BT035
Enabling operators to command and control multiple UAVs will require higher levels of supervisory control, enabling vehicles to operate autonomously during larger portions of each mission. For the foreseeable future, however, critical portions of each mission will require operators to apply their superior knowledge, judgment, and skills to assess the situation, monitor execution more closely and, ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC Topic: N17BT035
OKSI and Professor Matthew Taylor will develop the Cognitive Adaptation and Mission Optimization (CAMO) command and control tool for teams of UAS platforms. CAMO will incorporate existing databases (e.g., NASA population maps, FAA airspace maps, etc.) as well as real-time data from UAS into a learning-based cognitive control solution that maximizes mission performance while minimizing risk for a t ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
