  6. Combat Systems of the Future

    SBC: ASSETT, Incorporated            Topic: N05149

    The S-351 mini-sub is a prototype of the Dry Combat Submersible (DCS). This prototype was established as a means of risk reduction prior to a full commitment to the DCS program. Both of these platforms have an operational need to transit with minimum operator fatigue safely to a pre-defined point and covertly deploy and retrieve SEALS. To meet these operational needs, these platforms require upgra ...

  7. Semantic Parsing and role Labeling In Combination Effort (SPLICE)


    To Counter Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD), DTRA must analyze data from numerous sources about a diverse set of technologies and activities. The extreme diversity in content and the volume of DTRAs data combine to produce one of the most challenging analysis problems in the government. The CWMD mission therefore requires deep analysis - an in-depth understanding of all available data and correl ...
