Cybernet Systems Corporation has been awarded a Phase I SBIR contract by the Air Force titled “Mobile Wildlife Surveillance System.” The Air Force Base has a requirement, based on the Endangered Species Act, the Sikes Act, and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, to maintain the natural environment near their facilities, while still meeting military mission objectives.

For this effort we will create and deploy a remotely controlled or fully automated robotic (operator choice) mobile wildlife surveillance system (MWSS) or in support of managing natural resources. The system will be comprised of a small rugged robot that drives a search pattern based on a map and detected obstacles, and is able to collect video (visible light, IR, and perhaps thermal), audio, and weather related (e.g. temperature, pressure, and airspeed) data using a suite of relevant sensors.

The sensor data will be recorded and analyzed using deep learning software trained to recognize the relevant fauna and animal dwellings. The recorded data will be tagged with the identification information, and if the confidence is high enough, the robot will remotely notify experts, allowing teleoperation (if desired) of the robot and the sensors in order to verify or refute the automated detection. This verification/refutation can then subsequently be used to improve the identification process via more training.

This nine month Phase I SBIR effort for Edwards Air Force Base ends in December, 2019.

Cybernet Systems Corporation has been awarded a Phase I SBIR contract by the Air Force titled “Automated Coating Removal Tool.” The U.S. Air Force, as well as other military branches, must perform regular inspection and maintenance on their aircraft and other weapon systems to maintain fleet readiness and effectiveness in the face of aging aircraft populations and new high tech platforms with multilayer composite coatings. When a layer fails, proper repair requires the removal of the layers above the failed layer. Once the repair is complete, the coating must be properly rebuilt layer by layer to insure proper adhesion. Frequently, maintainers will remove the coating through a “racetrack” coating removal process that exposes each layer of the coating down to the layer to be repaired (in a manner similar to a step-sanded scarf composite repair). This repair technique has proven to be effective; however, manual application of this process is both time-consuming and prone to manual errors. The Air Force desires an automated or semi-automated coating removal capability to increase the quality and speed of “racetrack” coating removal. Cybernet will design and build a compact, portable Automated Coating Removal Tool (ACRT) for Air Force maintainers by leveraging our experience with designing and developing robotic systems for a wide range of applications.

This nine month Phase I SBIR effort for the Wright Patterson Air Force Base ends in December, 2019.

Cybernet Systems Corporation is exhibiting its artificial intelligent based logistics, security, and  maintenance capabilities at the Army Autonomy and Artificial Intelligence Symposium and Exposition on November 28-29, 2018, at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan. The symposium focuses on U.S. Army innovation in robotics, autonomy, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, which are key focus areas for Cybernet Systems. For more information on the conference, see:  https://www.ausa.org/army-autonomy-ai-symposium .

Cybernet Systems Corporation has been awarded a Phase I SBIR contract by the Air Force titled “Automated Pallet Planning.” Cybernet is working with the Air Force to develop automation to aid airmen to rapidly, effectively, and efficiently palletize cargo, frequently on 463L pallets, to prepare them for shipping. We are building artificial intelligence (AI) concepts to analyze the cargo to be shipped and then create a pallet loading plan. The loading of different items onto a single pallet is an example of the Multiple Bin Size Packing Problem (MBSPP) and the Multiple Heterogeneous Knapsack Problem (MHKP) for which there are a number of known solutions, despite the problem spaces being NP-Hard problems.

This nine month Phase I SBIR effort for the Air Force Research Lab ends in June, 2019.

Cybernet's Vice President of Cybersecurity and Training Systems will be presenting a Tutorial at I/TSEC on Monday, November 26th, at 12:45 PM, Room S320A, titled: Risk Management Framework: Cybersecurity Compliance for Modeling, Simulation, and Training Systems. Cybersecurity, it is everywhere we look in today’s world and when it comes to government systems it commonly evokes fears of insurmountable regulation which ultimately provide little benefit. This tutorial aims to educate the audience with an understanding of the ultimate goals of the Risk Management Framework (RMF) and how it was designed to relieve excessive regulation and costs. An area of focus will be on understanding the requirements for the Cybersecurity RMF and how it applies to modeling, simulation, and training systems. We will detail the reasons for Cybersecurity compliance, the key concepts, and why it is critical for military, government, and even civilian applications.

The tutorial will explain the general process of approaching RMF compliance and how the Cybersecurity implementation plans are created and revised in the requirements gathering phases of a project. Using these RMF requirements and concepts, the tutorial will then take it a step further and analyze the documentation deliverables associated with RMF, their purposes, and finally the government processes necessary to submit a system for an Authority-to-Operate decision. Attendees will gain a strong foundational understanding of the Cybersecurity Risk Management Framework and how to apply it in their own programs.

Cybernet Security Advisor is a Cybersecurity platform which secures a computer’s operating system and the applications running on it to DoD Risk Management Framework (RMF) compliance standards. Utilizing Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs) published by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), Security Advisor simplifies a system lockdown process normally requiring highly skilled Cybersecurity personnel days of effort into just minutes.

Cybernet is presenting this capability at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC), the world's largest modeling, simulation, and training conference, in Orlando, Florida, on Wednesday, November 28th, at 10:30 AM in Booth 1086.

Cybernet has been chsen to provide engineering services for the Autonomous Unmanned Systems Teaming and Collaboration in GPS Denied Environments (AUSTC) IDIQ, in support of ARDEC at Picatinny arsenal. This five year, $49.9M IDIQ program aims to build, integrate and evaluate autonomous unmanned systems sensing technologies equipped with features such as 3D/4D mapping, target identification, tracking, collective 3-D visualization, advanced real-time analysis and radio communication systems.

Cybernet Systems Corporation has been awarded a Phase I SBIR contract by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration titled "Feedback Sensors for Closed Loop Additive In-Space Manufacturing." This six month effort for NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center is to address their nee for an in-situ monitoring and development of in-process quality control for in-space manufacturing applications. 

Cybernet's proposed approach is an integrated precision scanning of the additive manufactured (AM) parts and feedback of that data back into AM layer by layer process control.  The goal is to augment Space Manufacturing AM process controls with verifiable feedback enabling improved process stability and part quality to significantly reduce the risk associated with complex AM parts, especially those with critical hidden internal geometries or other features not readily measured with non-destructive tests/measurements.
