SBC: RAM PHOTONICS LLC Topic: N14AT023
Digital equalizers have been the major enablers in RF communications in terms of managing component imperfections and channel impairments. Specifically, the ever increasing processing power of the dedicating computing processors has availed a steady increase in the ability of complex communication systems to deal with impairments as well as allowing higher capacities in the information transfer.On ...STTR Phase II 2016 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: 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
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
SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: N18BT030
We propose to develop an innovative open architecture for the semi-autonomous command and control (C2) of teaming Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The proposed architecture, based upon Toyon’s Decentralized Asset Management system, supports both centralized and decentralized fusion and control autonomy solutions as well as hybrids approaches. Leveraging STANAG-4586, TCP/IP, UPD, Google™ protob ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
Blending Classical Model-Based Target Classification and Identification Approaches with Data-Driven Artificial IntelligenceSBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: N18BT033
Toyon Research Corp. and the University of California propose to develop innovative algorithms to perform automatic target recognition (ATR), localization, and classification of maritime and land targets in EO/IR, LiDAR, and SAR imagery. The proposed algorithms are based on recent developments made at the University of California, which outline a strong mathematical framework for naturally blendin ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: MAKAI OCEAN ENGINEERING INC Topic: N11AT017
Subsequent Phase II Proposal, extension of Phase II contract N00039-12-C-0082. This contract involves the development of an underwater vehicle that can reliably and autonomously interconnect power and data cables to undersea nodes after they have been deployed. The Auto-Docking Autonomous Burial Vehicle (AD-ABV) is a cable-connecting adaptation of Makai’s proven ABV, which has been successfully ...STTR Phase II 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: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC. Topic: N17AT010
Crew resource management training systems are often constrained by the high cost and lack of flexibility in coordinating a large group of human role players for part-task training. Motivated by the recent maturation of the speech synthesis and recognition technologies, speech-enabled crew role-player agents are being introduced to address these limitations. However, difficulties remain in customiz ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: NALAS ENGINEERING SERVICES INC Topic: DTRA14B001
Nalas Engineering and Johns Hopkins University collaborated in a Phase I STTR program to study reactive mixtures of HI3O8 and nanocomposite fuels previously developed by the Weihs Group. These fuel/oxidizer mixtures are uniquely able to simultaneously produce heat and biocidal iodine gas, a combination designed to destroy biological weapons. The team at Nalas focused on evaluating conditions for p ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
