  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. 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 ...

  4. 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 (

  5. Neutralization Without Detonation of IEDs in the Field

    SBC: Energetic Materials & Products, Inc.            Topic: DTRA06007

    EMPI will develop a commercially viable prototype of the nanoenergetic bullet (NEB) that was successfully demonstrated in the Phase I program. The program involves a series of experiments in year-one to test the critical functions of the NEB to safely neutralize IEDs and UXO. The program will culminate in year-two with a series of live fire tests against 155 mm artillery shells. The technology exp ...

  6. Hybrid Reactive Materials for Thermobaric Weapons

    SBC: REACTIVE METALS, INC.            Topic: DTRA06010

    It is proposed to produce and evaluate hybrid powders containing highly reactive filler coated by or embedded into a matrix of readily boiling, combustible binder. The binder material, such as paraffin wax and Viton-like rubber, are expected to ignite and burn within the expanding fireball while the reactive filler remains at the relatively low temperature at which the binder boils, and thus rema ...

  7. New Methods for Progressive Collapse Testing and Simulation

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA06003

    The potential for progressive collapse of buildings damaged by terrorist blasts represents a significant risk to building occupants. There is a need for software tools that assess the potential for progressive collapse of above ground structures. These tools should run quickly and accurately predict the collapsed region of a damaged structure. These tools would be of great value to security pla ...
