SAM-PDA: A Scalable, Automated and Modular Toolkit for Population Data Analysis

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Duke University

Agency: Army
Topic: A16A-T013
Budget: 08/15/16 - 02/16/17
PI: Chunlei Liu

To protect national interests and effectively plan, coordinate and execute military operations, support training and foster partnerships, the U.S. military must better understand populations involved in or impacted by operations. The successful population data analysis is critical in several aspects including but not limited to: assessment of pr...

Stigmergy and State Sharing (S3): Achieving Collective Goals through Individual Robot Behaviors

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-036
Budget: 08/01/16 - 01/31/17
PI: Alexander Grushin

In swarms of social insects, simple individual actions can lead to the emergence of highly sophisticated collective behavior, capable of performing tasks that range from shortest path discovery to nest construction. Such collective intelligence has served as an inspiration to researchers in robotics, due to the high effectiveness of its underly...

Cyber Forensic Tool Kit for Machinery Control

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of New Orleans

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T013
Budget: 06/15/16 - 12/12/16
PI: Lei Ding

For machinery control systems, forensics is a vital part to provide a cyber-protection strategy and aid in identification and troubleshooting of system malfunctions due to malicious and non-malicious events. A number of unique challenges exist for the forensic analysis of SCADA based systems. Components of a SCADA system are often resource const...

Jamming Resistant High-Frequency Communications (JRHF)

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-049
Budget: 06/13/16 - 12/10/16
PI: Marcos Bergamo

Multi-vehicle communications systems (MVCS) provide data link and networking services between littoral combat ships (LCS) and unmanned vehicles (UVs) such as unmanned surface vehicles, unmanned underwater vehicles and remote multi-mission vehicles. Current radios cannot provide high data rates (>100 Kbps) under significant jamming conditions, e....

Safety Analysis For Evaluating (SAFE) sUAS

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A2.02
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16
PI: Ankit Tyagi

NASA?s Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration in the NAS (UAS in the NAS) project is aimed at developing new technologies to enable safe operations of UAS in the NAS. Under the UTM program NASA plans to investigate procedures that can make sUAS operations for all stakeholders. Safety and operations studies under UTM will require accurate trajecto...

Reduced Order Modeling for Aeroservoelastic Control and Analysis (RACA)

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A1.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16
PI: Peter Chen

NASA and other government agencies have been plagued by aeroelasticity of aircraft structures for a long time. The traditional approach has been to build stiff structures for suppressing aeroelastic effects. However, the increase in computational technology has enabled a careful analysis of aeroelastic effects, and design of lightweight structur...

Stakeholder Web-based Interrogable Federated Toolkit (SWIFT)

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A3.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16
PI: Frederick Wieland

The chief innovation is the development of a Predictive Query Language that populates databases with future information provided from aviation models, along with integration to social media networking to augment research, with an overarching web-based system for finding and generating aviation-oriented research questions. The innovation is inte...

DAAS: Data Analytics for Assurance of Safety

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A3.03
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16
PI: Ankit Tyagi

Assuring safe operations in the National Airspace (NAS) encompasses monitoring a variety of systems simultaneously and in real time. It is helpful to imagine NAS as a system of systems where each system loosely interacts with the other. Under this paradigm, an aircraft is a system, so is an airline and as is an airport. Automating safety assuran...

Common Parachute Descent Trainer

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-007
Budget: 06/09/16 - 12/15/16
PI: Devendra Tolani

The Navy needs a Parachute Descent Procedure trainer that enables air crew to practice and experience parachute descent procedures before they apply these procedures during a real mission. To address this need, IAI and our frequent collaborators from the Parks College Parachute Research Group, propose to investigate a Common Parachute Descent Tr...

GNSS Reflectometer Instrument for Bi-Static Synthetic Aperture Radar (GRIBSAR) Measurements of Earth Science Parameters

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S20.01
Budget: 05/13/16 - 05/12/18
PI: Arvind Bhat

Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signals scattered from ocean, land and ice are affected by the reflecting surface, and hence the changes induced by the surface can be observed. The full-time operation of radio navigation satellites system, abundant global signal coverage and spread spectrum communication for flexible signal processing ...
