  1. Language Learning Experience in Virtual Reality

    SBC: A P Ventures, LLC            Topic: 91990019R0011

    The team will develop a prototype of a virtual reality environment for high school students who are learning a foreign language. Students will become active participants in virtual scenarios using the target language of instruction (Russian in Phase I), with listening comprehension, vocabulary acquisition and recall, and grammar development occurring implicitly in simulated real-world context. At ...

  2. Autonomous navigation through small, confined spaces

    SBC: Robotic Research LLC            Topic: DTRA182002

    As more of our enemies expand the number and complexity of their underground facilities, the need to improve the tools that provide consistent situational awareness (SA) increases accordingly. For complex missions such as these, we require a family of systems (FoS) that have different capabilities, and can address various mission needs. Robotic Research proposes creating a unique, small platform ( ...

  3. A Deep Learning Approach for Enhanced Discrimination of Nuclear Weapons Testing

    SBC: Array Information Technology, Inc            Topic: DTRA182005

    Seismic, hydro acoustic, and infrasonic (SHI) analyses possess many desirable properties, such as long-distance wave propagation and attributable spectral characteristics. They have been, by large, relegated to capturing massive explosions, earthquakes, bolides, and space-bound rocket launches. Although machine learning techniques have been employed on various military and commercial projects, rar ...
