  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. Volume Independent Analytics for Discovery of Unseen Correlations via Tensors (VIADUCT)

    SBC: RESERVOIR LABS INC            Topic: AF171048

    This Phase II effort continues development of Volume Independent Analytics for Discovery of Unseen Correlations via Tensors (VIADUCT). VIADUCT leverages recent advances in tensor decompositions as a form of unsupervised discovery and the proliferation of open source Big Data tools to address the lack of advanced analytics available to Air Force Activity Based Intelligence (ABI) analysts. This effo ...

  3. Dual Ka/Q-Band Low Noise Amplifiers

    SBC: ENGIN-IC, INC.            Topic: AF171123

    ENGIN-ICs objective in Phase II is to complete the design and layout of a < 2-dB noise figure, > 20-dB gain, and > 25-dBm OIP3 dual Ka-/Q-band LNA, requiring < 0.5 W DC power, and handling RF power levels to 1 W (requiring a GaAs Schottky diode limiter for GaAs HEMT processes, which ENGIN-IC will design, fabricate, and test), using two short gate length HEMT processes which can be space qualified. ...

  4. Non Destructive Trusted FPGA Verification

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: AF171068

    Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) can provide electronic system designs with a high degree of relatively inexpensive customization. Unfortunately, the fabrication facilities are located in untrusted facilities. This prevents their use in applications requiring a high degree of safety or security. Hidden functionality could potentially be inserted during manufacture. These Trojans can be used ...

  5. Avian Vision Integrated Deterrent (AVID)

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF161023

    Lynntech and Purdue University aims to rationally design effective retrofits for photovoltaic (PV) installations located in the Pacific Flyway migratory corridor, based on what birds actually perceive.Vision in birds is entirely unlike our own, and what might seem very similar to us can be different to a bird species.Variation amongst different birds is considerable--what is visible or obvious to ...

  6. Computational Corrosion Modeling for Condition Based Maintenance Plus (CBM+) / Aircraft Environment Tracking

    SBC: Adirondack Analytics            Topic: AF171095

    The Corrosion Rate Enabled Wash Cycle Updating Technique (CREWCUT) is designed to provide a conditioned-based approach to optimize aircraft and support equipment washing cycle practices, which are currently time-based. It is proposed as an enterprise information system that will automatically extract asset usage (e.g., aircraft flight and deployment history), correlate it to data representing the ...

  7. 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

  8. Energy Storage System

    SBC: Select Engineering Services            Topic: AF171064

    This project will develop and demonstrate a rechargeable Energy Storage System (ESS) that will interface directly into an adjustable frequency drive controlling a 100 HP 460 VAC 3 phase induction motor. The ESS must store enough energy to supply the existing motor/motor drive as it lifts and lowers a 14,000-lb. weight 180 3 times in succession. The ESS must integrate directly into an existing syst ...
