  1. A High-Level Operator Abstraction for GPU Graph Analytics

    SBC: Royal Caliber            Topic: ST13B004

    We are proposing a new software framework for analyzing very large graphs using massively parallel processors (GPUs). This framework will be commercialized on a cloud platform that gives users immediate access to highly advanced big-data analytics through a user-friendly web interface, as well as an HTTP API for easy integration. The platform can be deployed on a private cloud if desired. The sy ...

  2. Analog Co-Processors for Complex System Simulation and Design

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: ST15C002

    It has long been known that analog computers can be faster and more power efficient than digital processors by many orders of magnitude. Until the 1970s analog computers were the dominant controllers in most industrial and military applications. Even today digital processors are still slower and more power consumptive than analog, but offer much more flexibility (programmability) and precision. ...

  3. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is critical to detect the proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges facing this objective include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions (e.g., gamma rays) from common radioactive isotopes behind shielding, and (b) cost-effe ...

  4. Development of powder bed printing (3DP) for rapid and flexible fabrication of energetic material payloads and munitions

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: DTRA16A001

    This program will demonstrate how additive manufacturing technologies can be used with reactive and high energy materials to create rapid and flexible fabrication of payload and munitions. Our primary approach to this problem will be to use powder bed binder printing techniques to print reactive structures. The anticipated feedstock will consist of composite particles containing all reactant spe ...

  5. Fully Metallic Self-Fragmenting Structural Reactive Materials Using Composites and Alloys Comprised of Aluminum, Lithium, and Magnesium

    SBC: Adranos Energetics LLC            Topic: DTRA16A002

    While aluminum casing materials provide some enhanced performance and thermal loading to explosive ordinance, their overall effectiveness is highly limited by incomplete combustion and long residence times. In order to reduce these problems, the casing material must be designed to facilitate rapid fragmentation through either specialized casing geometries or greatly refined initial particle sizes. ...

  6. Heterogeneous Analysis of Group Interactions and Dynamics (HAGID) for Social Media Forecasting

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: ST12B002

    This proposal is to extend into Phase II our development of a new system for Recognition of Communities and Heterogeneous Analysis of Group Interactions and Dynamics (RC-HAGID) for Social Media Forecasting. Social media enables groups, including terroris

  7. Hybrid Analog-Digital Co-Processor for Scientific Computation

    SBC: ALLEGORY LABS LLC            Topic: ST15C002

    We propose to use a hybrid analog-digital electronic computer to solve partial differential equations (PDEs) arising in scientific simulations and high performance computing (HPC). The simulation of PDEs has extensive applications in commerce, research, and defense. Analog computation potentially decreases the time and energy needed to reach a solution by providing an ability to carry out iterativ ...

  8. Modular Pulse Charger and Laser Triggering System for Large-Scale EMP and HPM Applications

    SBC: Scientific Applications & Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: DTRA16A004

    For effective protection against EMP and HPM threats, it is important to understand the physics of the threats, and also to quantify the effects they have on electrical systems. EMP and HPM vulnerability testing requires delivery of high peak power and electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments is to develop a modular, optically-isolated MV-antenn ...

  9. Novel Screen Approach to Inactivate Whole Viral Vaccines by Supralethal Irradiation

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: DTRA14B002

    Future vaccine development should focus on rapid upscale production, long-term and broad protection, and sufficient global distribution to prevent and reduce the impact of many infectious diseases and potential epidemics. Agave BioSystems proposes to develop a novel whole-microorganism vaccine inactivation strategy involving high-throughput screen of extensive radio-protectant matrices and radiati ...

  10. Portable System with Li Foil MWPC Neutron Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA14B005

    At the completion of the research and development effort a Li foil multi-wire proportional counter (MWPC) neutron detector with more than 625 cm^2 of active area will be included in a portable radiation detection system. The system is expected to have an intrinsic thermal neutron detection efficiency of 55% or greater and gamma-ray rejection ratio (GRR) of 1.0x10^-8 or better. A gamma-ray spectrom ...
