Award List:

Open Data Distribution Service (DDS) for use in a real time simulation laboratory environment

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$79,833.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
James Darcey, Vice President
Abstract:
Heron Systems Inc. proposes to investigate using an open source implementation of the Data Distribution Service (DDS) as the key middleware for distributed simulation events involving large scale, computer generated scenarios running in real-time with numerous participating laboratories. During… More

Realtime interlinked software for distributed Non-latent N-DOF operations

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,979.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator:
Jason Summers, Lead Engineer, Distributed Sim Team – (301) 866-0330
Abstract:
An architecture for linking geographically disparate N-DOF test beds to facilitate real-time distributed operations is proposed. An industry supported middleware solution, OpenDDS, is proposed as a basis for the required simulation software. A survey of existing laboratory conditions is performed.… More

Integrated Data Registration for Networked Aircraft

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,977.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Jason Summers, Senior Software Engineer – (301) 866-0330
Abstract:
An integrated data registration solution using neural networks is proposed. Previous data registration solutions typically involve a fixed model of biases and noise. The biases are then estimated and the estimates used to offset future sensor measurements. These models are unable to solve more… More

Integrated Data Registration for Networked Aircraft

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$414,773.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Jason Summers, Senior Engineer – (301) 866-0330
Abstract:
A prototype integrated data registration solution using machine learning algorithm(s) is proposed. The solution will improve upon existing sensor and data registration solutions by implementing internal models capable of adapting to highly variable operating environments. The prototype will… More

Forecasting of Solar Eruptions using Statistical Mechanics, Ensemble, and Bayesian Forecasting Methods

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,868.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Greg Sanders, Sr. Computer Scientist – (571) 257-8403
Abstract:
Heron Systems proposes Solar Prediction via Deep Learning (SPINDLE), a human out-of-the-loop system to improve the state of solar flare forecasting using novel machine learning techniques. Currently, solar flare forecasting is either dependent on an expert, with their own subjective biases and… More

Realtime interlinked software for distributed Non-latent N-DOF operations

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2014 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$999,870.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator:
James Darcey, Sr. Software Engineer – (571) 257-8403
Abstract:
Interlinked Software for Achieving Analogous Control (ISAAC) offers capability to link geographically disparate N-DOF test beds to facilitate real-time distributed operations. ISAAC is an evolution of an existing distributed simulation architecture used extensively by the US Navy in multiple… More
