  1. Situational Awareness for Mission Critical Ship Systems using Probabilistic Knowledge Graph

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N18AT009

    This effort proposes to develop situational awareness methodologies for mission critical ship system based on the state-of-the-art probabilistic knowledge graph (KG) and deep learning. The proposed KG approach can incorporate various data fusion technologies for analysis of unstructured data (text, images, etc.) and structured data (signal feeds, database items, etc.) for automated decision suppor ...

  2. Nondestructive Evaluator for Polymer Ablatives (NEPAL)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N18AT011

    Materials for thermal protection are required to protect structural components of space vehicles during the re-entry stage, missile launching systems, and solid rocket motors (SRMs). Polymer resins that have high char retention (e.g., phenolic resins) are the most common matrices in the composite materials for rigid thermal protection systems (TPSs) due to their tunable density, lower cost, and hi ...

  3. Rapid Identification of Effects of Defects within Metal Additive Manufacturing (RIED-AM)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N18AT013

    Additive manufacturing (AM) systems, especially metal AM, bring revolutionary capabilities, but suffer from a lack of understanding of the defects that exist within the components. In this research, based on selective experimental study and numerical simulations, we will develop an empirical database of defects and their effects on mechanical properties using Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) technol ...

  4. Ignition Modeling for Present and Future Combustors and Augmentors

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N17AT003

    The ability to predict the ignitibility potential of a combustor at various operating conditions is not practical at this time due to the complexity of this process. Ignition within a gas turbine combustor is dependent on various parameters; including spark (or plasma) energy, flow conditions, fuel/air ratio, and fuel spray density. All these parameters must be properly predicted in order to effec ...

  5. A Scalable Event Extractor for Multi-Level Event Data and Pattern Archiving: SEE

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N17AT022

    To address the need of auto-extracting data relevant to significant events and to archive patterns, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) team proposes to continue developing a Scalable Event Extractor for Multi-Level Event Data and Pattern Archiving: SEE. The key innovations of our proposed SEE system are (1) a large class of analytics that extract valuable and important information from raw data, a ...

  6. Characterization of Piezoelectric Fibers for Sensing Shock Waves from Underwater Explosions

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Devices            Topic: DHA17C002

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I effort will demonstrate the feasibility of using piezoelectric fibers to detect shock waves from underwater explosions (UNDEX) and sensing physiological measures such as heart and respiratory rates on warfighters. Piezoelectric fibers will be characterized for their ability so sense different amplitudes and frequencies of shock and vibration. ...

  7. Brain Targeting Nanoparticle for Drug Delivery in Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: Weinberg Medical Physics, Inc.            Topic: DHA18A001

    There is an urgent need to bypass or cross the blood brain barrier (BBB) to deliver drugs for TBI treatment. This project aims to develop targted intranasally delivered, magnetically propulsed, and targted nanoparticles for traumatic brain injury (TBI). In Phase I, we will demonstrate the design, fabrication, and in vitro characterization of proposed drug laden magnetic nanoparticles as well as co ...

  8. Additive Manufacturing Sensor Fusion Technologies for Process Monitoring and Control.

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: DLA18A001

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a modern and increasingly popular manufacturing process for metallic components, but suffers from well known problems of inconsistent quality of the finished product. Process monitoring and feedback control are therefore crucial research areas with a goal of solving this problem. To address this concern, X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) and the University of Dayton Res ...

  9. Forager

    SBC: Next Century Corporation            Topic: SB12A004

    Next Century Corporation will develop novel means to acquire data on patterns of exploration of web-based information. For the proposed effort, we will integrate fine-grained logging of activities across different search paths and develop new methods for extracting web content that provides and analyzes the broader context in which such activities take place. In addition, we will develop a robust ...
