  2. High Speed Room Temperature Single Photon Counters

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: A11aT008

    Detecting light at the single photon level is a fundamental measurement function that is useful in a wide variety of applications, including such diverse fields as biological spectroscopy, laser ranging, and quantum communications. Avalanche photodiode (APD) based single photon detectors (SPDs) are very convenient in that they are small solid state devices that don"t require cryogenic cooling. Si- ...

  3. Story Creation and Inference through Bayesian Extraction (SCRIBE)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: A11aT010

    Without a deep understanding of causes, context, and meaning of the events they observe, Warfighters are unable to reliably develop or execute effective courses of action. Unfortunately, traditional methods of accessing this information require significant effort searching large volumes of unstructured text from varied open sources. Advanced methods for coping with this problem face several challe ...
