  1. Progressive Automation of Minirhizotron Image Processing through Advanced Contextualization and Machine Learning

    SBC: Transcend Engineering and Technology, LLC            Topic: 26b

    Minirhizotron image collection has benefited from technological advances in camera design and operation, bulk data storage, and remote camera control enabling high-volume image collection. The technology used in processing these minirhizotron images into useful data metrics has not progressed at the same pace. Individual images are often manually interpreted, and researchers are accumulating image ...

  2. Soil Moisture Flux Sensor using Machine Intelligence

    SBC: Transcend Engineering and Technology, LLC            Topic: 26a

    Our proposal addresses the need expressed in subtopic 26.a to measure vertically resolved soil moisture distributions. While soil moisture content is a key state variable in subsurface hydrobiogeochemical processes, spatially resolved soil moisture flux is an equally important process variable. We propose to develop an intelligent sensor that will use machine learning to infer vertically resolved ...

  3. Large-Area Visible and UV Metal-Oxide Avalanche Photodiodes for Cherenkov Detectors

    SBC: Qrona Technologies LLC            Topic: 34a

    For many decades photomultiplier tubes PMTs) have been the main technology for sensitive and low noise detection of photons in many high energy physics experiments. However, compared to solid-state photodetectors, PMTs are bulky, fragile, and need to be shielded from high magnetic fields and high pressures, which severely limit their application for future DOE projects. Hence, there is a need for ...

  5. High-Accuracy Angle Generator for Angular Calibrations to Support Optical Metrology Laboratories and Light Source Facilities.

    SBC: VERMONT PHOTONICS TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: 12a

    Improving our current ability to measure the shape of x-ray focusing mirrors is necessary to advance our knowledge of the atomic structure of many types of materials, especially for the latest diffraction-limited light sources within the DOE. X-ray studies at DOE national laboratories of the atomic structure of new materials, biological molecules, etc. are limited by the quality of the x-ray spot ...

  6. Red Team in a Box for Embedded and Non-IP Devices

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: N182131

    Because Navy Cyber Physical Systems (CPSs) are often not connected to IP networks, yet still may be vulnerable to cyber attack, there is an urgent need for a portable device that can be connected to a variety of non-IP CPSs to assess their security posture. SIFT proposes to develop the CRIMSON Portable Red Team to automatically extract firmware from a target, analyze the firmware to find zero-day ...

  7. High Growth Rate GaN MOCVD Platform for Ultrahigh Voltage Devices

    SBC: AGNITRON TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: N182134

    Future DoD and Navy missions require advances in current high voltage power electronics technology. In this proposed effort, Agnitron will investigate the limitations of existing MOCVD technology and propose solutions towards an MOCVD system for Gallium Nitride capable of growth rates over 10um per hour at pressures from low to super atmospheric. The goal is to achieve low background concentration ...
