  1. Robust Coordination Under Extreme Uncertainty (Phase 1 Proposal Number D143-005-0143)

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: SB143005

    Under this effort, we propose to build COASTeR, Course of Action analysis by STR. COASTeR will build on our Phase I Robust Coordination effort, which demonstrated that courses of action (COAs) that include explicit pre-planning for contingencies can be effectively employed to proactively coordinate distributed battle management by mixed manned/unmanned teams in highly uncertain environments, impro ...

  2. Robust Coordination Under Extreme Uncertainty

    SBC: Barnstorm Research Corporation            Topic: SB143005

    During recent conflicts, the U.S. has benefited from complete air dominance. Such dominance has allowed us to control or even eliminate many, if not most, sources of uncertainty affecting air missions. The command and control systems that have emerged from these conditions were designed to optimize their performance. However, as shown in [9], such an approach yields high performing but brittle sys ...

  3. Maritime Tagging, Tracking, and Locating (MTTL) Small Unmanned Air System (sUAS)

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A12020

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop the InstantEye Maritime Tagging, Tracking, and Locating (MTTL) small Unmanned Air System (sUAS) payload. The MTTL sUAS program addresses the key technical challenges of developing refined sUAS flight dynamics and controls under turbulent attachment conditions as well as tag attachment methods and mechanisms. The program leverages $Ms in private inve ...

  4. SoundFit Ultrasonic Prosthetics Diagnostic

    SBC: FTL Labs Corporation            Topic: NonDoD

    In Phase I, FTL Labs Corporation (FTL), working with Dr. Frank Sup's Mechatronics and Robotics Research Laboratory at UMass, Amherst, prototyped and tested a powerful new enabling technology for socket fitment using low-cost, point-to-point, ultrasonic bone tracking transceivers. In Phase I FTL's SoundFit is was shown to be feasible and effective. It applies ultrasound and video-game-like visualiz ...

  5. SA3: Small Autonomous, Sensor Agnostic, Sense and Avoid

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB151006

    Currently small unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) are limited in their ability to autonomously fly in complex, cluttered, environments.This significantly limits the utility of small tactical UAVs to the warfighter/squad who must manually control the vehicle.Small UAVs require: a) scalable autonomous survival behaviors to avoid collision with environmental structure and moving objects; b) Low size, weig ...

  6. ACA: Active Collaborative Autonomy

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB111004

    Anti-access Area Denial (A2AD) capabilities from peer threats render many aspects of current CONOPS inadequate.For example, our manned aircraft are projected to experience unacceptable attrition against peer IADS forces.The overall system concept of collaborative teams of smaller UAVs and manned-unmanned teams shows great promise for counteracting the A2AD threats and improving the cost-exchange r ...

  7. Analysis and Development of Scalable Techniques for Creating Optically Transparent Resistive Films with Tapered Resistivity

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM16004

    Conductive films that maintain transparency are a key element in many current products and industries, including electronic devices for touch screens and automobiles to defrost windows. Such films are also useful in military applications. By introducing a resistive taper in conductive films or antennas, overall performance can be improved by reducing backscattering and increasing sensitivity in an ...

  8. Soft Bio-Interfaces for Physiological Sensing and Modulation

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB153001

    Triton Systems proposes to develop and demonstrate the feasibility of a clinically-viable implantable electrode with mechanical properties compatible with nervous tissue in the peripheral nervous system. The proposed intrafascicular electrode utilizes a combination of recently developed materials that i) enable excellent conductivity, good strength and high compliance and ii) provide a rapid trans ...

  9. Fast Octavespanning OPEN (Optical-Pumping ENhanced) ID (Infrared Detectors)

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: SB153002

    Agiltron will develop an innovative uncooled GHz octavespanning MWIR detector. The device is silicon-based and utilizes a unique optical-pumping-enhanced technique that significantly reduces noise at room temperature while increases the absorption of MWIR photons. This enables the detector to operate at non-cryogenic temperatures and achieve high signal-to-noise ratio. Silicon-based architecture e ...

  10. Tunable Cyber Defensive Security Mechanisms

    SBC: Aarno Labs LLC            Topic: SB153003

    Evaluating security mechanisms is a difficult and manual process. To effectively compare different techniques, security analysts use synthetic benchmarks that are typically comprised of simple test cases or a combination of known vulnerabilities in an attempt to provide coverage for different classes of attacks. As such, security mechanisms adapt their techniques to guarantee good coverage for the ...
