  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. Engineering Models for Damage to Structural Components Subjected to Internal Blast Loading

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08006

    Weidlinger Associates Inc. proposes to develop effective technology for simulating explosive detonations within civil buildings where the propagation of airblast and failure of weak internal walls are strongly coupled. We will conduct a field test program designed to complement other internal detonation testing efforts such as DTRA''s Distinct Cobra, expanding the available database. We will perfo ...

  4. Engineering Models for Damage to Structural Components Subjected to Internal Blast Loading

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: DTRA08006

    Algorithms are needed for fast-running engineering models that predict damage levels of structural members subject to the blast environment from high explosives detonated inside a building (i.e., internal explosions). These algorithms will be used as part of vulnerability analyses that quickly assess building blast damage from internal explosion scenarios associated with terrorist threats, mission ...

  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 (
