  1. Cyclone Collection system for Radionuclide Detection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA182006

    The detection of radionuclide aerosols is a critical indicator of a nuclear detonation. Existing sensors as part of the International Monitoring System operate in a batch process and typically have a 48 to 72 hour delay between aerosol sample collection and measurement activities due to limits of instrument sensitivity. The continuous, instantaneous measurements of atmospheric aerosol radiation le ...

  4. Mill Development Model Development and Testing

    SBC: Innovative Natural Resource Solutions, LLC            Topic: 86

    INRS and MDP will collaborate to build an analytical model that demonstrates the probability of success - and opportunities for enhancement - for the redevelopment of idled industrial assets. This model will be developed and refined using the former pulp and paper mill in Old Town, ME., and data supplied by multiple redevelopment efforts elsewhere in the State of Maine. Based upon learnings and ex ...

  5. Low-Cost Sensing Array for Infrasound

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA172001

    Infrasound and seismic measurements are used by DTRA and the DoD for nuclear test monitoring, terrorist blast forensics, battle damage assessment, and environmental monitoring. However, these long wavelength physical signals are typically recorded through single-point sensors or sparse low density arrays. As a result, the critical signals of interest are often corrupted or masked by noise or inter ...

  6. Semantic Analysis Technologies for the Identification of Dual Use Research of Concern (STIR)

    SBC: G&C SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: DTRA172004

    Knowledge Based Systems, Inc. (KBSI) proposes to design and develop Semantic Analysis Technologies for the Identification of Dual Use Research of Concern (STIR). The proposed STIR will process scientific documents using semantic technologies and inference algorithms to identify potential for Dual Use Research of Concern (DURC). The focus will be on 15 high consequence pathogens and toxins and seve ...

  7. Safe High-Energy Long-Life (SHELL) Solid-State Ultracapacitors

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: DTRA172005

    In order to reduce DTRAs dependence on batteries and their associated logistics train, advanced power supplies, which are able to charge quickly and work in a wide variety of environmental conditions, and are reusable over many charge-discharge cycles without loss of performance, are greatly required. Lynntech proposes to develop safe, high energy, long-life (SHELL) solid-state ultracapacitors by ...

  8. Non-saturating, high-sensitivity military pocket dosimeter

    SBC: PROPORTIONAL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA172007

    During this Phase I effort, Proportional Technologies, Inc. will develop non-saturating components for a military battlefield dosimeter based on ionization chamber technology, which will ultimately be combined with low-dose sensors in Phase II for a final product that is both highly sensitive, accurate, and non-saturating in the event of a nuclear blast or other high-dose scenario. The proposed hi ...

  10. 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 ...
