  • Easy-to-Use Classifier for Complex Problems | TechLink
    helping determine the most relevant factors In complex problems with large data sets the technology is extremely effective in reducing the number of dimensions to an easily handled set The BDRA selects critical information and eliminates unproductive data thus allowing accurate classification with the fewest number of variables Ease of Use The BDRA is fast and easy to use Classification decisions can be made in real time The technology learns by providing automatic feedback on its own performance eliminating the need for user interaction The efficiency created by this automated process can reduce costs associated with current methods The BDRA can be run and interpreted by individuals with very little statistical background High Performance The BDRA readily adapts to different classification situations The technology outperforms traditional classification and ANN methods in certain types of complex problems with high dimensionality or in situations where there is no known built in structure or functional form to data Missing Data The technology is effective when the data base contains missing or incomplete data A Theoretical 2nd Opinion The BDRA employs fundamentally different mathematical techniques than either neural networks or linear classification techniques Thus while the BDRA can compete with the best methods of classification perhaps one of its main advantages is its ability to be used in conjunction with other methods By combining the BDRA with other approaches such as neural networks a user can have a committee of algorithms available for decision support and cross validation of decisions and classifications This is particularly important in high risk decisions The Opportunity Applications BDRA was originally developed at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center for classification of sonar data but has outstanding potential for use in almost any field particularly with Decisions that need to identify inherent patterns embedded in large amounts of data Decisions

  • Rugged Quick-Disconnect Trailer Mount | TechLink
    patented and deployed a military grade trailer ball receiver hitch that is rugged yet easy to use The device originated from a requirement for a trailer system that could be lifted by helicopter but quickly separated for use and able to withstand the extreme sand environments of Afghanistan The key is a simple design based on two quick disconnect pins With no moving parts the system has a large pull out force compared to standard hitches The pins also provide positive visual confirmation that the hitch is locked the result of which is a system that is virtually impossible to accidentally disconnect The hitch features a large mouth and conical internal shape that makes it easier to center and connect more solidly than other systems The hitch is designed to collecting dirt and dust that can cause other receivers to not seat properly and fail The Army s receiver hitch works with standard trailer balls The system has undergone complete military standard transportability shock and vibration testing as well as full environmental sand and dust testing at Aberdeen Proving Grounds The mount has been deployed on several variants of generator trailers and no failures have been reported despite five years of military use in rugged combat environments Benefits Fail proof Strength Simple design yields high strength and visual confirmation of a positive lock Fast and Easy Wider base of the receiver mouth makes it easier to center and capture the ball mount than competing products with narrow mouths Built for Rugged Environments Unlike competing products the Army s design is not prone to collecting dust sand or other debris that can compromise performance The Opportunity Issued US Patent 7 735 850 available for license Potential for collaboration with Tobyhanna Army Depot and CECOM Life Cycle Management Command to adapt design
