Customized Applications and R&D
CogniTech is developing a chemical detection systems simulation environment for the Office of Naval Research. The chemical and biological detection processes contains a number of component processes, including the generation of a vapor cloud, atmospheric transport, large-scale meteorology, sensor hardware, sensor software, sensor fusion and decision support systems. These processes can be represented as system of sub-system models. The constituent simulations are characterized by model semantics, parameters and metrics, which include domain of applicability, dynamic state evolution, simulation time scales, resolution, fidelity, uncertainty, and robustness. The architecture incorporates these characteristics by integrating distributed software interfaces and supporting chaining of simulation outputs, errors, noise, uncertainty, and perturbation disturbances. It securely integrates databases and process models, including a wide variety of sensor and environmental data interchange formats. The architecture also facilitates the verification and validation of models and simulations using ground truth data.
Toxicity screening is important to many industries including household chemical production, agriculture, food science, pharmaceutical, petroleum, and chemical/biological defense. Using fuzzy logic, rules-based expert systems technology, and the Java programming language, CogniTech Corporation has developed a web portal for property-based toxicity assessment of novel chemical compounds. Research and development of CogniTech's Integrated Toxicity Evaluation Portal (ITEP) is currently focused on identifying hormonally active agents and incorporating ab initio methods of quantum chemistry in property-based toxicity evaluation.
