  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Portable, Fieldable, Non- Helium-3 Based Neutron Multiplicity Counter

    SBC: PROPORTIONAL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA162007

    Neutron coincidence counters are currently based on 3H technology. A worldwide 3He shortage plus the need for significant improvements in performance necessitate the development of a new class of neutron detectors. We propose the use of boron-coated straw

  5. 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 ...

  6. StepWise Virtual Tutor for Algebra I

    SBC: QUERIUM CORP            Topic: 1

    StepWise will be a mobile and desktop virtual tutor that provides real-time assessments and support to middle and high school students to learn Algebra. The adaptive engine will include rule-based artificial intelligence to guide students through the steps of solving problems, and will permit students to explore many different pathways to a correct response. After entering a response, students wil ...

  7. Knowledge Exploitation and Population for Event Reasoning (KEPLER)

    SBC: LANGUAGE COMPUTER CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA143005

    In Phase I of KEPLER, we will demonstrate how customizing extraction techniques for knowledge base population will allow us to capture and reason with the rich semantics of events and actions. We will demonstrate (1) how to extract event parameters, event construals, and inter-event relations which can form several composite event constructs; (2) how to reason with a KB focusing on events by combi ...

  8. JOLTER: Joint Learning of Topics, Entities, Events and Relations

    SBC: LANGUAGE COMPUTER CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA152005

    In Phase I of JOLTER, we will demonstrate how unsupervised models for discovering entities, events, topics, and relations allow for a domain independent analysis of technical literature.We will demonstrate (1) how to discover entities, events, and their classes in a fully unsupervised manner; (2) how generative models not only provide a flexible platform for the automatic discovery of entities, ev ...

  10. Conundrum: A Project to Computerize the Comprehensive

    SBC: The Evans Associates            Topic: N/A

    CSMP is an exciting K-6 math program, designated as an "exemplary educational program that works¿ by the U.S. Department of Education, which funded its development, evaluation, and dissemination. Its spiral, problem solving approach uses picture languages, abaci, and technically challenging games. Simple problems subtly introduce sophisticated concepts. While class and teacher-student intera ...
