  1. Software Workspace for creating and testing Algorithmic Responses based on Meta-heuristic Experimental Designs (SWARMED)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB162005

    Military operators are challenged by managing, gaining information from, and reacting to autonomous systems. Additional challenges arise from providing autonomous systems with the means to maintain resilience, be adaptable, and help military operators understand the control strategies employed by autonomous systems, whether those strategies are intentional or arise from emergent interactions. Thes ...

  2. Biologically-Inspired Swarm pErception and Control Technology (BISECT)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB162005

    SSCI, University of Pennsylvania (UPenn, Dr. Amanda Prorok and Prof. V. J. Kumar) and Arizona State University (ASU, Prof. Stephen Pratt) propose to carry out initial analysis, development, implementation and testing of the Biologically-Inspired Swarm pErception and Control Technology (BISECT). The proposed BISECT capability addresses the problem of synthesizing optimal control policies for hetero ...

  3. Modeling the effects of non-linear magnetic spin wave dynamics on RF circuits in COMSOL

    SBC: Metamagnetics Inc.            Topic: SB162007

    Metamagnetics proposes to develop a set of computational models that captures the non-linear behavior in frequency and time domain of RF magnetic components, such as FSLs and SNEs, and deploy it within COMSOL, a multiphysics equation-based solver. In our approach, we will develop two independent modules in COMSOL; one that is based on phenomenological behavior and a second that is entirely based o ...

  4. Distributed, Large Scale Spectrum Measurement and Analysis

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: SB162011

    Systems and Technology Research (STR) is developing a preliminary system design and prototype algorithms for mapping the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) in an urban environment using 50 or greater networked UAVs flying at low altitudes. Urban spectrum utilization will continue to grow with the proliferation of wireless Internet of Things (IoT) devices and communications that will increasingly use s ...

  5. Complementary Piezo Energy Harvesting for Small Satellites in Eclipse

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB162012

    Triton will demonstrate a piezo energy harvesting system (PEH) for a cubesat or similar small satellite platform that complements existing photovoltaic elements, trickle-charging the spacecrafts batteries in periods of eclipse when photovoltaic output is low, thereby reducing the required spacecraft battery capacity.

  6. Piezoelectric Energy Harvesting with Bistable System (PEHBS)

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: SB162012

    The objective of this SBIR project is to develop a piezoelectric energy harvesting system using a bistable structure(s). Mid will combine piezoelectric energy harvesters developed from its commercial piezo energy harvesting (PEH) products with Ohio State University and their novel approach and vast experience on piezo energy harvesting with bistable systems. Phase I will demonstrate a proof-of-c ...

  7. Nautical Evaluation of Mammal Observations (NEMO)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB162015

    To protect marine mammals from ship strikes and sonar exposure, teams of human watchstanders maintain a tedious, costly, and daylight-only visual lookout. However, manned search is impossible on unmanned vessels like DARPAs ACTUV. Automated video search can provide affordable surface detections without human fatigue, and automated acoustic search can provide detections below the surface, but both ...

  8. Near-Surface Whale Detection from Autonomous Ships Using Asynchronous Sensor Fusion System (ASSIST)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB162015

    SSCI, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and Olin College of Engineering propose to develop, implement and perform initial simulation testing of the ASSIST (Asynchronous Sensor fuSIon SysTem) for near-surface whale detection. ASSIST is an information fusion approach which will integrate and process information from sonar, thermal imaging sensor, radar, and an information service such as the Right ...

  9. Autonomous Detection of Near-Surface Marine Mammals

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: SB162015

    STR is teamed with Sercel Incorporated to address the challenge of automated mammal monitoring. Sercel has developed a commercial product, QuietSea, evolved for use by the oil industrys seismic community for mammal monitoring. Sercel complements STRs considerable experience in fielding advanced prototype sonar systems. With this combined experience, the STR team will design and develop a mix of ac ...
