  3. JOLTER: Joint Learning of Topics, Entities, Events and Relations

    SBC: LANGUAGE COMPUTER CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA152005

    In Phase II of JOLTER, we will develop several extensions and improvements upon the probabilistic graphical models developed in Phase I for discovering topics, entities, and relations jointly. The system will be able to (1) Discover and extend hierarchies of topics, entities, and relations; (2) Discover categories for events, multiway relations, and their roles; (3) Conditionalize the topics, ent ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Knowledge Exploitation and Population for Event Reasoning (KEPLER) Phase II

    SBC: LANGUAGE COMPUTER CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA143005

    In Phase II of KEPLER, we will develop a prototype Knowledge Base (KB) expansion system that employs rich common-sense knowledge resources to perform high-quality scalable inference over a KB. The system will be able to (1) extract event parameters, event constructs, ontological relationships, definitional effects and inferences, and quantitative expectations from open text and structured resource ...

  6. Remote Sensing of CWAs Using Color Changing Sensor Tags and RFID Detector

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: DTRA102006

    Rapid identification of these warfare modes, particularly Chemical Warfare Agents (CWAs), is vital to protecting U.S. armed forces personnel and their assets. Most quantitative and accurate methods for CWA identification utilize bulky and expensive equipment that require specific technical expertise for data collection and analysis. A major limitation to using existing detection equipment i ...

  7. Tag, Track, and Locate (TTL) technologies and concepts for combating weapons of mass destruction (CWMD).

    SBC: SURFACE TREATMENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA102001

    Inspired by canine"s olfactory receptor system, three dimensional chemical sensors will be demonstrated using nano-wire arrays, which have high sensitivity and selectivity, miniaturized size, and low power consumption. This innovative technology can be employed for combating weapons of mass destruction (CWMD).

  8. Advanced Solutions for Radiation Susceptibility Analysis & Prediction

    SBC: DFR SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: DTRA162006

    The increasing complexity of devices, reduced budgets and accelerated program timelines, requires a new approach to predicting radiation of integrated circuit (IC) designs.Most approaches to date require gate level analysis and do not scale easily to device level calculations, leading to methods that are note practical under most program timeline and cost budgets.Previously, DfR Solutions has demo ...

  9. Laser Direct Deposition Applied to the Manufacturing of Bulk, Net Shaped Metallic Glasses

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: DTRA11003

    We propose to develop reactive composite materials with sufficient strength and stiffness to serve as structural components for penetrating weapons and other munitions. The composites will consist of two materials that react with each other, in either oxidation-reduction (such as in a thermite) or bimetallic reactions. One component will be in the form of fiber, wire, or wire-mesh, within a bondin ...

  10. Production of Inactivated Vaccines Using Supralethal Irradiation

    SBC: BIOLOGICAL MIMETICS, INC.            Topic: DTRA14B002

    The discovery and commercial development of licensed vaccines often take many years of research followed by years of pre-clinical and clinical development. We propose to assess the feasibility of using a novel irradiation-inactivation technology to develop vaccines more rapidly. The technology utilizes a manganese-peptide complex to protect antigenic proteins from ionizing radiation while allowing ...
