  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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Absolute Distance Interferometer for Manufacturing Metrology Applications

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: NA

    Bridger Photonics, Inc. proposes to develop an absolute length metrology sensor that will simultaneously provide >1,000 measurements per second, 0.5 m maximum measurement distance. Bridger’s solution is will fill a gap in precision measurement technology for applications that require rapid monitoring of macroscopic distances such as positioning and calibration of surface metrology systems (CMM, ...

  5. Visual Part Identification, Localization, and Manipulation with Deep Networks

    SBC: SYMBIO ROBOTICS, INC.            Topic: NA

    During Phase I, Symbio Robotics conducted initial development of a robust, real-time, high-performance, low-cost perception engine made possible by recent advances in deep learning. This system identifies parts in 2D or 3D images and determines their six degree-of-freedom poses, producing a full description of a scene in a fraction of a second. For this technology to be practically useful in manuf ...

  6. Air Movement Efficiency Monitor

    SBC: XCSPEC, Inc.            Topic: NA

    The Air Movement Efficiency Monitor is composed of small, inexpensive Microelectromechanical system (MEMS) sensors, connected wirelessly to the Internet, and distributed through a building to measure pressure readings at key points. We consider this a “FitBit” for a building’s air-movement efficiency, employing many of the sensors used by a fitbit – temperature, humidity, acceleration. We ...

  7. Bioinformatics: Data Integration for Biomonitoring Applications

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: DTRA162002

    Aret Associates and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) propose an interdisciplinary effort to meet the challenges of developing a soil microbiome-based nuclear activity biomonitoring application. Our approach combines Arets expertise in decision theory and bioinformatics with ORNLs subject matter expertise in microbial ecology and contaminant signatures. We will adapt and extend our high featu ...

  8. Machine learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (SNM)

    SBC: Clostra, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162001

    "Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (DLeN) applies the same deep learning techniques that allow computers to beat human performance in image recognition and the game of Go to detecting Special Nuclear Material. Spectral analysis and signal processing can in some cases be augmented by the use of much larger neural nets that conduct much deeper analysis of features of t ...

  9. Advanced Solutions for Radiation Susceptibility Analysis & Prediction

    SBC: LUCID CIRCUIT, INC.            Topic: DTRA162006

    With the advent of high-density low-power sub-20nm technology processes and circuits with tens-of-billions of transistors, radiation-induced single-event effects present a new set of design challenges for terrestrial applications. Developing reliable single-event effect resilient microelectronics in these modern technology nodes is a resource and time-intensive endeavor that further requires valid ...

  10. Bioinformatics: Data Integration for Biomonitoring Applications

    SBC: Reference Genomics, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162002

    To effectively counter Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) we must be able to accurately and sensitively detect the sites of WMD development. While the reagents and byproducts of nuclear activity may be rapidly depleted from environmental sites, those transient perturbations leave a lasting mark on the resident microbial communities by promoting and restricting the growth of different microorganisms ...
