A computer-implemented method for de-identifying data by creating tokens through a cascading algorithm includes the steps of processing at least one record comprising a plurality of data elements to identify a subset of data elements comprising data identifying at least one individual; generating, with at least one processor, a first hash by hashing at least one first data element with at least one second data element of the subset of data elements; generating, with at least one processor, a second hash by hashing the first hash with at least one third data element of the subset of data elements; creating at least one token based at least partially on the second hash or a subsequent hash derived from the second hash, wherein the token identifies the at least one individual; and associating at least a portion of a remainder of the data elements with the at least one token.

ABSTRACT: The Air Force is facing severe budget cuts which force the need to cut operating costs of aircraft and manpower. One way to do this is to increase reliability of systems and components which would reduce maintenance and increase operational availability, which reduces the number of aircraft needed to complete missions. The Air Force desires a new prognostic health management (PHM) approach that applies advanced diagnostic and prognostic algorithms to systems and components of vehicles operated under harsh or off-design conditions typical of military platforms. In Phase I, MSI developed and prototyped a PHM system that will provide accurate prognosis of propulsion system health and, as much as possible, preempt loss of control, in-flight shutdowns and cut down on false removals and maintenance time caused by inadequate information from the aircraft. The demonstration included real time data collection, signal conditioning, cognitive processing, and data offload from the EPIC; and probabilistic decision support information for maintenance troubleshooting assists. The RTS operating engineer flew simulated missions and seeded faults that typical of hard to isolate problems experienced in RPA propulsion systems. All the seeded faults introduced by the Rolls-Royce RTS engineer were successfully identified. BENEFIT: The COSMOS PHMS three tier approach, implemented with passive embedded processing nodes offers cost effective advantages that go beyond data recording to provide in-flight diagnostics and prognostics and also support O-level troubleshooting and data mining of fleet data. Being on-board and real time COSMOS can programmed to alert the maintainers not only of the diagnosed cause of a red tag events but also predict probabilistically the progress of degradation of components to indicate those what actions can be taken to preempt future failures. The probabilistic information from the COSMOS PHMS will also provide actionable decision support during maintenance by providing diagnostics and backup data. COSMOS will provide root cause analyses to wiring electrical or other cause which will reduce No Fault Found. COSMOS PHMS will improve existing logistic support processes by providing information not currently available. All this translates to reduced maintenance time, lower operating costs and higher operational availability.

PEO-Aviation has established a requirement for Integrated Vehicle Health Monitoring Systems (IVHMS) that perform passive data collection, diagnostics, and prognostic assessment of the remaining useful life of components and systems. The information and data produced by the IVHMS augment the existing helicopter usage monitoring system (HUMS) which focuses on collecting data related to use of the rotors, gearbox, and propulsion system. In previous SBIR programs, Management Sciences, Inc. (MSI) has developed a sophisticated software toolset that operates in a small avionic module and performs passive in-flight data collection, diagnostics, and prognostics of remaining useful life of components and systems. The scope of this Phase II work effort is to extend the technology hardware and software to perform as data collection and processing nodes reporting data and analytical results to the IVHMS computer. MSI shall produce and test prototype articles in Boeings high fidelity AH-64 laboratory (TRL-6). In a stretch goal, provided schedule and budget are sufficient, the technology will be flight certified and flight tested on AH-64 provided by PEO-AVN (TRL-7).

In Army SBIR II Management Sciences, Inc. has developed the EdgeWare edge-enabled system for soldiers on the move equipped with Nett Warrior End User Devices. EdgeWare is game changing because it pulls delivery of important information to the combat soldier and reflectively pushes information from the combat soldier to commanders and other support organizations such as medical, logistic, and intelligence services. Military medical services desire to equip Nett Warrior EUDs with software which partitions the device into different levels of security domains, neither of which can physically access the other such that the user could generate the required patient encounter documentation in the unclassified partition and transmit over an unclassified network or through an unclassified tunnel through a classified (SIPRNET) network connection, thereby maintaining the unclassified status of the patient encounter record. The software we propose will run on the Nett Warrior system and will meet or otherwise satisfy NSA standards for maintaining physical separation between classified and unclassified processing domains. In Phase I MSI will system engineer, design a prototype for enabling multi-security domain applications to process and transmit data from a Combat Medics Electron EUD.

Management Sciences is widely recognized for its passive instrumentation module that runs Bayesian algorithms which monitor signatures to assess the health and remaining life of electronic and mechanical components. New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (NM Tech) is our research partner. Our approach is to translate a current microelectronic module into an 1-in x 1-in application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) that operates using very low continuous power consumption in both sleep and active modes. The ASIC will derive power supplied by the host printed circuit board (PCB) and from a battery when host PCB power is unavailable. The ASIC will be such that it integrates with an existing PCB connector and micro-components that sense stress of PCB components, humidity, temperature, rate of temperature change, and dynamic environment vibration and shock loading. Raytheon Missile Systems will identify systems, subsystems, or components where this technology can be applied. Our Phase 1 work will develop and implement a small scale test to verify and validate the utility of the technology in a system, subsystem, or component.

During Phase I, Management Sciences, Inc. (MSI) proved feasibility of adapting their current technology into a product capable of improving performance resulting in increased efficiency and extended life cycles of heat pumps. The resultant product is a tool named the Heat Pump Sentient (HP-Sentient). The HP-Sentient will improve performance and reduce maintenance costs through aggressive goal-seeking control and simultaneous real time monitoring for stresses, degradation, and equipment faults using deductive modeling. In Phase II, MSI will produce an easy-to-install, plug-and-play kit that connects to existing heat pumps that will sell for about $100 in production quantities.
