SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc. Topic: N18BT033
Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes the design and implementation of the Target Recognition with the Assistance of Artificial Intelligence (TRACE) system that incorporates classical model-based target classification and identification approaches with data-driven machine learning solutions to improve the target classification accuracy. The outcome of the TRACE systems is a set of machine lea ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
Decision Support for Operators of Fully Autonomous Systems using RESTORE: Robust Execution System for Trusted Operation in Relevant EnvironmentsSBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC Topic: N18BT032
SSCI and MIT (Prof. Julie Shah) propose to develop and test a system that provides real-time assurance and trust in decisions made by autonomous collaborating vehicles. The proposed system is referred to as the RESTORE and represents a decision support tool which facilitates decision making by the operator in cases when decisions by the Collaborative Autonomy (CA) system results in deviations from ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: QUSPIN INC. Topic: N17AT013
Optically pumped magnetometers provide very high performance but they cost tens of thousands of dollars, and they are large and power hungry. Recently we successfully developed and commercialized laser pumped magnetometers with size, weight and power consumption that is an order of magnitude below current state-of-the-art without sacrificing performance. In this project, the focus will be on produ ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
Development of Explosive Non-Acoustic Sensing on Remotely Operated Vehicles for Littoral Threat Characterization in Complex Seabed EnvironmentsSBC: White River Technologies Inc Topic: N17AT015
White River Technologies, Inc. proposes this effort involving non-acoustic sensing methods and sensor fusion technologies to detect and characterize seabed objects of interest in littoral environments relevant to US Naval activities. Current and evolving threats to maritime dominance require the Navy to adapt to potential hazards from a variety of sources, which could include terrorism, and to ope ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: APTIMA INC Topic: DHA18B001
Current cervical spine assessment methodologies are focused on subjective measures (i.e. pain reports) and range-of-motion (ROM) measures that only measure maximum head excursion and reach, but not dynamic motion. Due to report bias and existing incentiveSTTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseDefense Health Agency

SBC: CORNERSTONE RESEARCH GROUP INC Topic: N18BT031
Large aerospace composite structures currently require autoclaves and ovens to achieve desired performance which are expensive to purchase, costly to operate, and often limit part size and production rate. Ovens and autoclaves rely on convective heating which is inefficient, consumes large amounts of energy, and can be difficult to predict. Alternative cure processes using external heaters or hot ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP Topic: N18BT031
For this research program, Mainstream will collaborate with Colorado State University (CSU) to develop a nanostructured heater capable of curing aerospace grade composites out-of-autoclave (OOA). The use of autoclaves is the primary cost driver in composite manufacturing due to size limitations, long processing times, and inefficient energy usage. Therefore, the Navy is looking to develop a nanost ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: METIS DESIGN CORP Topic: N18BT031
Manufacturing of structural composites traditionally employs autoclaves to achieve high quality parts, including high fiber-volume-fractions and low porosity. A laminate comprised of stacked prepreg plies are cured under a vacuum in addition to ~7 bar of pressure to prevent formation of voids, particulalry in interlaminar (inter-sheet/ply) regions. However, manufacturing composites within an autoc ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES INC Topic: N17AT018
The recent emergence of many new ocean-transiting military and domestic security threats has led to a growing need within the Department of Defense in general and within the Department of the Navy in particular for improved methods for estimating the electromagnetic vulnerability to visual/electro-optical/infrared/radar systems. Accurate characterization of the marine boundary layer (MBL) in the v ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
