  1. Machine learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (SNM)

    SBC: Clostra, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162001

    "Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (DLeN) applies the same deep learning techniques that allow computers to beat human performance in image recognition and the game of Go to detecting Special Nuclear Material. Spectral analysis and signal processing can in some cases be augmented by the use of much larger neural nets that conduct much deeper analysis of features of t ...

  2. Novel Munition Technologies to Attack and Defeat Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143004

    Traditional weapon systems often fail to meet the requirements of close combat typical of the previously discussed engagement, where insurgents often blend in or store weapon amongst friendly or non-combatant forces, to shield them from precision strike munitions of a technologically superior force. This type of warfare has led to an increased focus on the use of less-lethal weapons, to reduce let ...

  3. Advanced Fast Shutter for Debris Mitigation

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143007

    In an effort to development more robust optical system coatings DTRA, in collaboration with Sandia National Labs, is working to characterize the degradation of optical materials for space systems when exposed to high intensely EUV/ cold x-rays. The experiments utilizes the Double Eagle z-pinch facility which generates high current, high voltage arc pinch plasma to produce an intense EUV and cold x ...

  5. Freeze Casting of Tubular Sulfur Tolerant Materials for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    SBC: Millennitek, LLC            Topic: A14AT011

    Solid oxide fuel cells have long suffered from degradation due to impurities in the fuel and complexities associated with dissimilar materials and high operating temperatures.This degradation lowers the usable cell power output and requires ancillary equipment for fuel sulfur removal and reformation.A unique microstructure for the tubular anode will be produced using a novel freeze-casting techniq ...

  6. Compact Laser Drivers for Photoconductive Semiconductor Switches (16-RD-863)

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: DTRA16A004

    Compact Electromagnetic Pulse Module (EMP) capable of being arranged in series-parallel planar or cylindrical arrays is needed to simulate nuclear weapon effects. High gain optically triggered photoconductive semiconductor switches (PCSS) based on Gallium arsenide (GaAs) with low timing jitter enables the development of planar or phased arrays of modular EMP or High Power Microwave (HPM) sources. ...

  7. High Bandwidth Redundant Communication Links for Small Satellites

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: A16079

    Small satellites have never lacked the capability to collect large quantities of operationally relevant data. The real limitation in fielding large constellations has been the inability to downlink the large quantities of data. Neither the ground station assets nor the high throughput communications subsystems have existed to close many point-to-point tight-beam links to low-Earth orbit. To satisf ...

  8. Affordable, High Performance, Elastomeric, Solid Rocket Motor Case Insulation

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A16092

    Cornerstone Research Group, Inc. proposes new elastomeric materials for use in solid rocket motor case insulation that are low cost, easy to produce, and can integrate with existing manufacturing. CRG already has a cyanate ester elastomer (CEE) material that has been tested in a sub-scale motor and performed well, particularly in low mass flux conditions, but if properly reinforced it offers impro ...
