  1. Indoor Formaldehyde Detection by a Low-Cost Chemical Sensor Based on Organic Nanofibers

    SBC: Vaporsens, Inc.            Topic: 16NCER1A

    Need: People are exposed to formaldehyde, a carcinogen found in building materials. Highly sensitive, real-time formaldehyde sensors would improve human safety by alerting users to harmful concentrations. _x000D_ _x000D_ Technical Feasibility: Vaporsens produces chemical sensors based on novel organic nanofiber technology. Phase 1 results demonstrated high selectivity, rapid-response time, and dem ...

  2. Parameter Development for the Scaled Manufacturing of Mycelium Bound Panels for Commercial Interior Products

    SBC: Ecovative Design Llc            Topic: 16NCER6A

    Ecovative Design uses grown mycelium structures to bind agricultural and wood byproducts into inherently nontoxic_x000D_ products containing no added urea formaldehyde or flame-retardant chemicals. This research program focuses_x000D_ on maturing mycelium technology for use in the production of large scale board products, from low density (LD) particle board to acoustic panels and thermal insulati ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 (
