  1. Plan Learning Across Textual Observations (PLATO) Phase II

    SBC: LANGUAGE COMPUTER CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA162004

    In Phase II of PLATO, we will develop a prototype plan and goal identification system that employs a rich model of domain actions and events, extracted automatically from a massive amount of real-world domain-relevant information, to model agent-specific action costs and to process sequences of agent actions and events, extracted from text, as an agent plan in progress. The system will be able to ...

  2. Portable, Fieldable, Non- Helium-3 Based Neutron Multiplicity Counter

    SBC: PROPORTIONAL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA162007

    Neutron coincidence counters are currently based on 3H technology. A worldwide 3He shortage plus the need for significant improvements in performance necessitate the development of a new class of neutron detectors. We propose the use of boron-coated straw

  3. A Layered Service Provider/Customer Approach to Call Spoofing

    SBC: SECURELOGIX CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0171003

    Our proposed solution is based upon three primary concepts. First, we define the Authentication Engine, which is a cloud-based service that is passed simple information about a call, masks the complexity of using a variety of techniques to detect spoofing or authenticate the caller, and returns a score and actionable category for a very wide variety of scenarios. Second, we are making heavy use of ...

  4. Real-Time Authentication to Counter Caller ID Spoofing

    SBC: Illuma Labs Inc.            Topic: HSB0171003

    Vulnerabilities in telecommunications channels are being exploited at alarming rates by malicious attackers to commit fraud, perpetrate scams, and organize data breaches. In addition to financial losses incurred by corporations and taxpayers, attacks against government agencies such as the DHS can severely compromise national security. A common element of these attacks is the attacker's ability to ...

  5. Standoff Detection of VBIED and Suicide Bomber

    SBC: Energy Research Company            Topic: HSB072001

    Energy Research Company proposes the continued development of its proprietary technology, Laser Induced Acoustics (LIA), for standoff detection of VBIEDs and suicide bombers, and building a LIA based prototype suitable for high fidelity simulations. LIA uses a laser to interrogate a surface with the resulting acoustic signal indicating the presence of any explosive residues. In addition, we are us ...

  6. Novel Methods to Measure Penetrator Dynamics in Multi-Layer Geometries

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07011

    In Phase I of this effort we analyzed the structural response of a BLU 109 during typical penetration events. Based on these finite element results, we proposed and demsonstrated a simple robust concept for a passive penetrator sensor that identifies the material being penetrated and also correlates strongly with its underground trajectory. Such a sensor would obviously provide valuable informatio ...

  7. CNT-Based D2 Ion Source for Improved Neutron and Photon Generator

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: HSB072007

    Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI) proposes to develop a novel field ionization technology to produce a deuterium ion (D+) current for a neutron source or gamma-ray source enabling fast switching, high repetition rate and high yields. Carbon nanotubes (CNT) have a high aspect ratio structure (they are long and narrow) that induces high electric field concentration, thus they are ideal choices for electr ...

  8. The Characterization and Mitigation of Single Event Effects in Ultra-Deep Submicron (< 90nm) Microelectronics

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07005

    Orora Design Technologies proposes to develop electronic design automation (EDA) tools employing minimally invasive circuit design-based methods to mitigate single event effects (SEEs) for next generation Ultra-DSM CMOS (

  9. Advanced Unattended Ground Sensor (AUGS)

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: HSB062003

    SPEC will develop and deliver a suite of extended duration (2 year+), covert, unattended sensors for near real-time monitoring of the passage of people and vehicles in critical, remote border areas. The Advanced Unattended Ground Sensor (AUGS) will form a robust network of sensors, using a variable information bridge, to relay actionable information to the Customs and Border Patrol (CBP). Advanced ...

  10. Bio-Advise- A Rapid and Fully Automated Biothreat Evaluation Model

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: HSB062002

    In the event of a biological threat, first responders need tools that enable them to rapidly determine if a release is real or a hoax, which requires identifying multiple threat agents from a complex environmental sample. Current threat analysis is costly, time-consuming, and requires complex procedures with considerable expertise to execute. Lynntech s solution is BioAdvise, a simple, self-contai ...
