  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 ...

  8. Compact Integrated DBR Laser Source for Absorption Lidar Instruments

    SBC: Photodigm, Inc.            Topic: S1

    Modern water vapor differential absorption lidar (WV-DIAL) uses a single frequency distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) laser diode to seed a pulsed semiconductor amplifier. To meet the demand of these advanced instruments, the development of DBR lasers at multiple wavelengths in the 700-950nm region is required. Current DIAL systems use free-space lasers that require bulk optics and are subject ...
