  1. SWIR Imaging for Accurate Targeting of 40 mm Grenades and Small Rockets

    SBC: Princeton Infrared Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM182001

    A small size, weight, and power visible/Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) camera system will be developed to be inserted in a 40mm grenade to enable visual guidance.This 320x256 on 8 m pitch InGaAs imaging system will be able to image light from 0.4 to 1.7 m enabling the precision engagement of targets during the day and night as well as in fog and through smoke using the advantages of SWIR imaging.The i ...

  2. 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. Cloud Data Synchronization with Limited Bandwidth Communications

    SBC: BLACK RIVER SYSTEMS COMPANY INC            Topic: SOCOM163005

    As the DoD continues to develop applications backed by cloud-based data and enterprise infrastructures, remote-sites will require on-site data caches to permit operation during periods of disconnect from the enterprise.To address this challenge for SOCOMs Chimera system, Black River will develop a stand-alone Chimera system that is independent of Amazon cloud software; develop bi-directional data ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 (

  8. Agent Defeat using a DWA Accelerator

    SBC: Brookhaven Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08008

    A new type of compact induction accelerator currently under development at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) promises to increase the average accelerating gradient by at least an order of magnitude over that of existing induction machines. The machine is based on the use of high gradient vacuum insulators and advanced dielectric materials and switches. The system, called the Diel ...

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

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08006

    Predicting the response of building components to internal detonations is more complex than the corresponding task for external loads because of the more complex loading waveforms which include multiple reflections in the shock phase followed by a long duration pseudostatic loading that depends upon room venting. Add the possibility of additional impulsive loading from primary debris. We propose t ...

  10. Interactive Language Trainer

    SBC: PROGRESSIVE EXPERT CONSULTING, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06010

    PEC proposes to work on advanced curriculum development in order to integrate into an advanced gaming environment. To this end, PEC will adapt existing USSOCOM curriculum and provide guidance to developers in order to implement the curriculum. In addition, PEC will create avatars which can teach and demonstrate cultural gestures. These avatars will be advanced such that a user can take control of ...
