  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. Memory Instrumentation and Performance Simulation (MIPS)

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172003

    Next-generation high-performance computing (HPC) hardware, such as the Intel Xeon Phi Knights Landing Many-Integrated-Core processor, provide new deep memory architectures that offer the promise of increased performance. The challenge in taking full advantage of this architecture is selecting which data structures will be placed in the high-bandwidth memory. Optimizing data structure placement in ...

  4. Low-Cost Sensing Array for Infrasound

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA172001

    Infrasound and seismic measurements are used by DTRA and the DoD for nuclear test monitoring, terrorist blast forensics, battle damage assessment, and environmental monitoring. However, these long wavelength physical signals are typically recorded through single-point sensors or sparse low density arrays. As a result, the critical signals of interest are often corrupted or masked by noise or inter ...

  5. Safe High-Energy Long-Life (SHELL) Solid-State Ultracapacitors

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: DTRA172005

    In order to reduce DTRAs dependence on batteries and their associated logistics train, advanced power supplies, which are able to charge quickly and work in a wide variety of environmental conditions, and are reusable over many charge-discharge cycles without loss of performance, are greatly required. Lynntech proposes to develop safe, high energy, long-life (SHELL) solid-state ultracapacitors by ...

  6. Additive Manufacturing of All Solid-State Batteries with Novel Electrode Architectures

    SBC: Storagenergy Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172005

    Supercapacitors have attracted considerable recent attentions due to their high-power density, and long cycle life. Unfortunately, the energy density of supercapacitors is too low to meet these applications requiring an energy supply for longer periods (hours or days). Storagenergy Technologies Inc. proposes to develop a superior all solid-state battery (ASSB) fabricated by additive manufacturing ...

  7. Non-saturating, high-sensitivity military pocket dosimeter

    SBC: PROPORTIONAL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA172007

    During this Phase I effort, Proportional Technologies, Inc. will develop non-saturating components for a military battlefield dosimeter based on ionization chamber technology, which will ultimately be combined with low-dose sensors in Phase II for a final product that is both highly sensitive, accurate, and non-saturating in the event of a nuclear blast or other high-dose scenario. The proposed hi ...

  8. Semantic Analysis Technologies for the Identification of Dual Use Research of Concern (STIR)

    SBC: G&C SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: DTRA172004

    Knowledge Based Systems, Inc. (KBSI) proposes to design and develop Semantic Analysis Technologies for the Identification of Dual Use Research of Concern (STIR). The proposed STIR will process scientific documents using semantic technologies and inference algorithms to identify potential for Dual Use Research of Concern (DURC). The focus will be on 15 high consequence pathogens and toxins and seve ...

  9. A Robust, Machine Independent, Software Toolkit for Topology Aware Process Mapping on Distributed Memory HPC Architectures

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: DTRA172002

    A significant performance gap exists between the theoretical number of Floating Point Operations (FLOPS) that a HPC machine is capable of sustaining and the number of FLOPS realized by real-world HPC applications. One of the principle reasons for this gap is the parasitic work that computational processes must do to communicate with one another. It has been shown that this communication work can b ...

  10. 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 ...
