  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. Hermetic Seals for Chemical/Biological Protective Garments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD13109

    Interfaces on existing military chemical/biological protection garments are not designed to fully eliminate macroscopic and microscopic airgaps at folds, fabric surfaces, or hook-and-loop closures, and thus do not provide a hermetic barrier against exposure. Creare is developinghermetic garment closure systems that seal macroscopic and microscopic gaps at interfaces and closures and provide high c ...

  4. High Sensitivity, Low Complexity, Multiplexed Diagnostic Devices

    SBC: Paratus Diagnostics            Topic: CBD152005

    Our goal is to provide the Department of Defense with a reliable, point-of-need diagnostic device that is field-deployable, appropriatelysensitive, and can be easily adapted for detection of a variety of biological targets that are of interest to the defense community. Phase I of thisproject was for the initial demonstration and development of our low-cost personal diagnostic platform (referred to ...

  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 (

  7. Omni-Directional, Wind and Water Tolerant Inlet for the DFU

    SBC: ENERTECHNIX, INC.            Topic: CBD07116

    The current DFU inlet exhibits poor aerosol sampling efficiency at high wind speeds. This project will develop an improved inlet with very high sampling efficiency for 1 to 20 micron particles at wind speeds up to 30 mph independent of wind direction. The project is focused on the DFU, but our Aerodynamic Next Generation Inlet (ANGI) will be beneficial for any high volume aerosol sampling applicat ...

  8. Automated Objective Speech Intelligibility Assessment System

    SBC: LI Creative Technologies Inc.            Topic: CBD07106

    Based on the success of our Phase I feasibility research, we propose to continue the project for the automated objective speech intelligibility assessment system. It consists of a pair of head and torso simulators placed at the same distance as typical face-to-face communication, a power amplifier, a laptop computer, a speech recognizer, and console software. The simulator has acoustic properties ...

  9. Lightweight, Efficient Blower for Personal Air Ventilation System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD07115

    A personal air ventilation system (PAVS) can dramatically improve the environment inside chemical/biological protective clothing, protecting the health and safety of soldiers and enabling peak physical/mental performance for long periods. However, existing air blowers that can produce the flow rate and pressure drop needed for a PAVS are too heavy, inefficient, and noisy for a man-portable system ...
