12 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: InfoBeyond Technology LLC

Institution: University of Louisville

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T020
Budget: 07/11/16 - 05/10/17
PI: Bin Xie

Navy needs a real-time graph embedding tool for analyzing huge graphs (millions of nodes and billions of edges) from diverse sources. However, current approaches cannot provide dynamic and scalable graph analytics to show the military value of tactical data. In this project, InfoBeyond advocates EStreaming (Embedding & Streaming) for scalable an...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Spectral Sciences, Inc.

Institution: University of Louisville

Agency: Navy
Topic: N13A-T011
Budget: 09/18/15 - 03/17/17

Widely used composite materials reduce aircraft weight and cost, improve structural performance, and boost fuel efficiency. However, composites are susceptible to adhesive bond line quality issues, both in initial fabrication and in service related bonding failures. Detection of weakened bonds requires an easy diagnostic approach to routinely mo...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Spectral Sciences, Inc.

Institution: University of Louisville

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF12-BT02
Budget: 04/10/14 - 05/14/16

ABSTRACT: Underground facilities can be used by rogue governments to conceal command-and-control and to manufacture weapons of mass destruction, and are an increasingly important operational challenge to U.S. military forces. Our objective is to determine improved methods of detection essential to address this critical intelligence need. Activ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: InfoBeyond Technology LLC

Institution: University of Louisville

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF13-AT02
Budget: 10/23/13 - 07/23/14
PI: Bin Xie

ABSTRACT: Due to scarcity of spectrum, Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) becomes a needed technology to improve the utilization of electromagnetic spectrum for DoD satellite communication. However, current DSA approaches are developed for terrestrial communications without addressing the unique challenges for SATCOM environments such as error-prone ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Spectral Sciences, Inc.

Institution: University of Louisville

Agency: Navy
Topic: N13A-T011
Budget: 07/01/13 - 04/30/14

Composite materials are widely used in aircraft to reduce weight and cost, improve structural performance, and boost fuel efficiency. However, composites are susceptible to adhesive bond quality issues, including kissing bonds which may occur because of initial fabrication or service related issues. Detection of such weakened bonds requires an e...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Spectral Sciences, Inc.

Institution: University of Louisville

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF12-BT02
Budget: 01/29/13 - 10/25/13

ABSTRACT: Remote optical detection of ground vibrations could potentially enable discovery of subterranean and camouflaged activity. The basic challenges are to acquire a detailed physical understanding of the detected signal and develop a system at reasonable cost with sensitivity to extremely small fractional light modulations. Under this ef...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Texas Research Institute Austin, Inc.

Institution: University of Louisville

Agency: Navy
Topic: N09-T016
Budget: 09/09/10 - 02/15/12

The suppression of a ship s magnetic signature is important in the effort to thwart detection by adversarial forces and prevent engagement with magnetic fused weapons. There are two ways to model ship magnetic signatures; through the use of finite element based analytical models and through the use of physical scale models (PSM). Finite element ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: InfoBeyond Technology LLC

Institution: University of Louisville

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT15
Budget: 06/21/10 - 03/21/11
PI: Bin Xie

The airborne network suffers from the limitations of highly constrained network capacity due to wireless link communication and intermittent connectivity among platforms. Information coding theory is a very new technology that is initially proposed for computer networks in 2001 and for ad hoc networks in 2006. The recent study shows it is able t...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Texas Research Institute Austin, Inc.

Institution: University of Louisville

Agency: Navy
Topic: N09-T016
Budget: 06/29/09 - 04/30/10

The Physical Scale Model (PSM) has performed a critical role in the characterization and remediation of magnetic signatures in Navy ships. The properly executed PSM permits the accurate sizing and location of degaussing systems. To be of cost benefit, the PSM must be constructed before the final design of the Navy vessel, leading to many altera...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Louisville

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07
PI: Li M. Ge

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will provide a commercial solution to click fraud identification and prevention. The current existing solutions can not detect the so-called software click. This STTR project proposes a real time collaborative click fraud detection and prevention system to detect these software clic...
