  1. General Purpose Radiation Detector Front End and Digital Processor

    SBC: H3D, Inc.            Topic: DTRA20B002

    This project aims to create a general-purpose readout architecture that will allow the rapid deployment of next generation detection systems. The system will be based on the development of a programmable general-purpose integrated circuit (GPIC) that has the front-end electronics required to read out signals from a variety of radiation detectors, especially next generation scintillators and semico ...

  2. Integrated Circuits

    SBC: NU TREK INC            Topic: DTRA20B002

    The Nu-Trek team is proposing to develop µDet, a low Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) read out integrated circuit (IC) for gamma and neuron detectors. µDet offers pulse shape digitization, which in turn enables gamma-neutron discrimination. This is a game changing capability that brings laboratory-level functionality to the field. In Phase I the Nu-Trek Team will develop a baseline design for the ...

  3. Hardened, Optically-Based Temperature Characterization of Detonation Environments

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: DTRA19B001

    Improving the effectiveness of counter-WMD operations requires improved understanding of weapon-target interaction. Specifically, time-resolved measurements of temperature and composition are required to allow temporal evolution of a detonation fireball. To address this need, SA Photonics will develop MONITOR, a laser-based temperature diagnostic that will enable wide dynamic range temperature mea ...

  4. Establishing Common Ground between Humans & Machines Pitch Day for Trusted Artificial Intelligence

    SBC: Sonalysts, Inc.            Topic: AF21BT002

    Across the military services and into the commercial sector, there is an increased focus on teaming human operators, maintainers, etc. with intelligent agents to improve system performance.  For these hybrid teams, developing, communicating, and maintaining a shared situation assessment is critical to properly calibrating human trust of the intelligent agent’s input and maximizing the performan ...

  5. Improving Military Common Ground Interactions with Computational Model Alignment

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF21BT002

    Human teams quickly communicate by referencing common ground, beliefs that team members share and know they share, to shortcut explicit statements and provide timely information. Partners can monitor for evidence of understanding during communication and take the other’s perspective, interactively aligning mental models. However, deployed human-machine teaming (HMT) agents do not use common grou ...

  6. Service-Based Multi-Domain Planning

    SBC: KESTREL TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: AF21BT001

    Military missions often have a deep hierarchical structure due to the need for extensive support for the top-level goal.  A typical strike mission in an Air Tasking Order has the top-level goal to degrade specific targets.  We propose a uniform representation for modeling planning domains and for representing joint/combined/all-domain planning processes.  The essential idea is view plans in ...

  9. Compact, Low-Cost THz Test System

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: AF12BT08

    ABSTRACT: In this Phase I STTR project, we propose to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a low cost, compact, time-domain terahertz (TD-THz) spectrometer specifically for the characterization of semiconductor materials over a range of temperatures, electric fields, and magnetic fields. In phase I, we will configure fiber optic coupled TD-THz instrumentation to make measurements on a sampl ...

  10. Development of light-weight, low-cost and high specific power organic solar modules with high radiation hardness

    SBC: SOLARMER ENERGY, INC.            Topic: AF13AT06

    ABSTRACT: Solar arrays play a key role in the operation of spacecrafts and unmanned aerial vehicles. Traditionally, inorganic semiconductor based solar arrays have been used for space applications because of their highest efficiencies. However, these solar arrays have several major limitations like extremely high cost, low specific power and large stowage volume. Organic photovoltaic (OPV) module ...
