  1. A Deep Learning Approach for Enhanced Discrimination of Nuclear Weapons Testing

    SBC: Array Information Technology, Inc            Topic: DTRA182005

    Seismic, hydro acoustic, and infrasonic (SHI) analyses possess many desirable properties, such as long-distance wave propagation and attributable spectral characteristics. They have been, by large, relegated to capturing massive explosions, earthquakes, bolides, and space-bound rocket launches. Although machine learning techniques have been employed on various military and commercial projects, rar ...

  3. Autonomous navigation through small, confined spaces

    SBC: ROBOTIC RESEARCH LLC            Topic: DTRA182002

    As more of our enemies expand the number and complexity of their underground facilities, the need to improve the tools that provide consistent situational awareness (SA) increases accordingly.For complex missions such as these, we require a family of systems (FoS) that have different capabilities, and can address various mission needs. Robotic Research proposes creating a unique, small platform (P ...

  4. Advanced Solutions for Radiation Susceptibility Analysis & Prediction

    SBC: DFR SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: DTRA162006

    The increasing complexity of devices, reduced budgets and accelerated program timelines, requires a new approach to predicting radiation of integrated circuit (IC) designs.Most approaches to date require gate level analysis and do not scale easily to device level calculations, leading to methods that are note practical under most program timeline and cost budgets.Previously, DfR Solutions has demo ...

  5. Automated Approaches to Analyze and Identify Dual Use Research of Concern from Scientific Publications

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172004

    The dual use potential of certain life sciences research has been recognized as an important biosecurity issue for a number of years. Current Dual Use Research of Concern (DURC) assessment procedures are pure manual work done by researchers/reviewers trained in the biosecurity domain. Therefore, an automated approach to analyze and identify DURC rapidly and reliably is urgently needed. To address ...
