  1. Advanced Fast Shutter for Debris Mitigation

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143007

    In an effort to development more robust optical system coatings DTRA, in collaboration with Sandia National Labs, is working to characterize the degradation of optical materials for space systems when exposed to high intensely EUV/ cold x-rays. The experiments utilizes the Double Eagle z-pinch facility which generates high current, high voltage arc pinch plasma to produce an intense EUV and cold x ...

  2. AlphaBear2

    SBC: Spry Fox LLC            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    This project team will fully develop and test AlphaBear 2, a vocabulary learning game for grade 4 to 7 students. Vocabulary is a prerequisite for academic success, as it is linked to stronger performance across academic subjects and improved reading comprehension. It is more difficult for students to participate in educational activities without understanding the key vocabulary associated with tha ...

  3. JOLTER: Joint Learning of Topics, Entities, Events and Relations

    SBC: LANGUAGE COMPUTER CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA152005

    In Phase II of JOLTER, we will develop several extensions and improvements upon the probabilistic graphical models developed in Phase I for discovering topics, entities, and relations jointly. The system will be able to (1) Discover and extend hierarchies of topics, entities, and relations; (2) Discover categories for events, multiway relations, and their roles; (3) Conditionalize the topics, ent ...

  4. Knowledge Exploitation and Population for Event Reasoning (KEPLER) Phase II

    SBC: LANGUAGE COMPUTER CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA143005

    In Phase II of KEPLER, we will develop a prototype Knowledge Base (KB) expansion system that employs rich common-sense knowledge resources to perform high-quality scalable inference over a KB. The system will be able to (1) extract event parameters, event constructs, ontological relationships, definitional effects and inferences, and quantitative expectations from open text and structured resource ...

  5. Novel Munition Technologies to Attack and Defeat Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143004

    Traditional weapon systems often fail to meet the requirements of close combat typical of the previously discussed engagement, where insurgents often blend in or store weapon amongst friendly or non-combatant forces, to shield them from precision strike munitions of a technologically superior force. This type of warfare has led to an increased focus on the use of less-lethal weapons, to reduce let ...

  6. Production of Inactivated Vaccines Using Supralethal Irradiation

    SBC: BIOLOGICAL MIMETICS, INC.            Topic: DTRA14B002

    The discovery and commercial development of licensed vaccines often take many years of research followed by years of pre-clinical and clinical development. We propose to assess the feasibility of using a novel irradiation-inactivation technology to develop vaccines more rapidly. The technology utilizes a manganese-peptide complex to protect antigenic proteins from ionizing radiation while allowing ...
