  1. Hybrid DNN-based Transfer Learning and CNN-based Supervised Learning for Object Recognition in Multi-modal Infrared Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 1

    On this effort Toyon Research Corp. and The Pennsylvania State University are developing deep learning-based algorithms for object recognition and new class discovery in look-down infrared (IR) imagery. Our approach involves the development of a hybrid classifier that exploits both transfer learning and semi-supervised paradigms in order to maintain good generalization accuracy, especially when li ...

  3. Development of Wakefield Accelerating Structures at Ultra-high Frequencies

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 30c

    The development of a multi-TeV e+e- linear collider is a key priority set by the P5 panel, which established the long-term strategy of the U.S. HEP program. A Two-Beam Acceleration (TBA) is one of the most promising approaches for this facility due to its potential for achieving high efficiency and the ability to accelerate particles with positive and negative charges. However, there are still cha ...

  4. An Advanced Simulation based 3D Framework and Toolkit for Fire Protection and Fire PRA

    SBC: CENTROID PIC INC            Topic: 37i

    At 10.8% Compound annual growth rate(CAGR), Fire Protection Systems Market Size is expected to reach 9.34 Bn USD by 2025. This however reflects only the systems but does not include the services, consultancy and other operator expenses incurred by the industry sectors impacted. Modeling and implementing fire safety for nuclear power plants is an expensive and complex activity. It is difficult to c ...

  5. User Location-Specific Data for Smarter Smart Grids

    SBC: ERIK PAGE & ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 06b

    Society at large and DOE in particular have an interest in the continued development and refinement of a smart grid infrastructure that more efficiently and reliably matches electrical resources to demands. While technological advances in recent years have improved the smart grid, these advances have been limited by a lack of granularity of data (e.g. environmental conditions at multiple locations ...

  6. Novel isotope sensor for spatially-resolved analysis of nutrient exchange in the rhizosphere Topic: 22.a. Technologies for Characterizing the Rhizosphere: Plant-Microbe-Mineral Interactions

    SBC: Opto-knowledge Systems, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Ensuring adequate agricultural productivity in the face of an increasing human population is a major concern with implications for both production of bioenergy products (Jones and Hinsinger, 2008) and global food security. Increasing agricultural productivity requires a stronger understanding of soil biogeochemical processes that impact plant nutrient availability. We propose development of an inn ...

  7. Spectral Near-Infrared and Thermal Infrared Imaging for Advanced Estimation of Thermal and Geochemical Soil-Plant-Water Properties

    SBC: Bayspec, Inc.            Topic: 26a

    The spatiotemporal quantification of coupled hydro-biogeochemical processes between soil, plant, and atmosphere requires advances in remote sensing technologies and in understanding the link between the measured signals (ie spectral traits) and the hydro-biochemical properties While current UAV-based remote sensing technologies provide spectral reflectance in the visible- short wave infrared (VSWI ...

  9. A new medium field superconducting magnet for the EIC

    SBC: PARTICLE BEAM LASERS, INC            Topic: 37g

    Most superconducting accelerator magnets are presently based on a conventional “cosine theta” design. Typically, the magnet length vastly exceeds the aperture, and the loss in effective length from the ends (about a coil diameter in typical dipoles) is relatively small. However, for relatively short magnets such as those envisioned for the Interaction Region (IR) of the Electron Ion Collider ( ...

  10. Terrestrial-aquatic isotope sensor for in-situ field measurements

    SBC: Opto-knowledge Systems, Inc.            Topic: 29aq

    Ecological and biogeochemical processes occurring along coastal interfaces are poorly understood on a mechanistic level and critically underrepresented in current models, impeding our ability to make informed resource management decisions. Stable isotope ratio measurements, e.g., 13C/12C, can provide detail about pathways and sources by adding specificity and attribution information that concentra ...
