The purpose of this task is to provide analytical and technical support services from college students majoring in Computer Science, Engineering and 3D Modelers/ Artists to assist with the Battlespace Exploitation of Mixed Reality (BEMR) Lab. This project looks to explore and develop mixed reality solutions for the warfighter using low- cost, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) gaming and cell phone technology. The goal of this project is to evaluate, integrate and exploit commercial mixed reality (MxR) technology for adaptation to the battlespace to increase and broaden the US warfighter’s asymmetric advantage.   DoD is currently using very few MxR solutions. In the scenarios where MxR is currently employed, the gear is too specialized and extremely expensive. This BEMR project will use inexpensive equipment that can simulate the virtual command center, tactical environment, training scenarios, etc. The purpose of a previous project, Blueshark lab (a fore-runner project to BEMR), was to speculate what will happen in the next 25-50 years in the Navy and Marine Corps. This effort focuses on ways to immediately exploit equipment and software that can be obtained in the commercial space and scale it to the warfighter, getting it in as many hands as possible.

This Statement of Work covers the need for the services of a college student to provide technical and/or analytical support in the field of electrical/mechanical engineering for the Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring for Load Disaggregation and Power Quality Analysis project. The purpose of this Energy System Technology Evaluation Program (ESTEP) funded project is to determine which non-intrusive load monitoring solution(s) offer the best potential for building-level load disaggregation and power quality analysis.   BACKGROUND:   Non-intrusive load monitoring (NILM) devices, such as smart meters, are used to measure, record and analyze a building’s energy consumption.  Load disaggregation is the process of taking a building’s aggregate energy signal and breaking it down into appliance specific data. Accurate load disaggregation leads to a more detailed understanding of how a building’s energy is being used, allowing for greater insight that can lead to energy savings from efficiency improvements and optimization techniques.
