  1. Improved Identification of the function of Novel and Partially Occluded Laboratory Equipment

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: DTRA19B002

    This STTR Phase II project proposes development of a statistical relational learning framework for identification of the function of laboratory equipment from imagery. The proposed framework uses semantic reasoning to incorporate evidence from multiple classifiers and feature extractors, domain knowledge, and scene context for scene understanding and labeling. The Phase II effort will focus on dev ...

  2. Integrated Circuits

    SBC: NU TREK INC            Topic: DTRA20B002

    The Nu-Trek team is proposing to develop µDet, a low Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) read out integrated circuit (IC) for gamma and neuron detectors. µDet offers pulse shape digitization, which in turn enables gamma-neutron discrimination. This is a game changing capability that brings laboratory-level functionality to the field. In Phase I the Nu-Trek Team will develop a baseline design for the ...

  3. A Broadband and Compact Dual Comb Spectrometer for Precise Field Detection of Trace Elements and Chemicals

    SBC: OPTICSLAH, LLC            Topic: DTRA20B003

    There is a growing need to accurately characterize nuclear materials not only for nuclear safeguards and nonproliferation treaty verification but also for forensics and provenance. Presently, nuclear material identification requires samples to be collected and sent to laboratories for analysis using large and expensive equipment, such as inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometers (ICP-MS) or se ...

  4. Computer Vision Image Interpretation for 3D Model Reconstruction

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA18B001

    Toyon Research Corporation (Toyon) and the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) propose research, development, and demonstration of algorithms and an efficient software prototype for 3D model reconstruction using single images collected via remote sensing. In particular, the effort is focused on processing of high-resolution commercial satellite images for 3D reconstruction of buildings. ...

  5. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is crucial to detect proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions from radioactive isotopes, and (b) cost-effectiveness for deployment of sensor networks across large storage facil ...

  6. Development of powder bed printing (3DP) for rapid and flexible fabrication of energetic material payloads and munitions

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: DTRA16A001

    This program will demonstrate how additive manufacturing technologies can be used with reactive and high energy materials to create rapid and flexible fabrication of payload and munitions. Our primary approach to this problem will be to use powder bed binder printing techniques to print reactive structures. The anticipated feedstock will consist of composite particles containing all reactant spe ...

  7. Portable and Automated Radiation Effects Test Structures for Advanced Technology Nodes

    SBC: Microelectronics Research Development Corporation            Topic: DTRA16A003

    Micro-RDC will develop portable radiation effects test structures that scales to new process nodes. These structures will enable the investigation of the effects of radiation on the new technology from the material processing level as well as the circuit level. The production of the chosen structures and the development of software to extract the model parameters will form the framework. A suit ...

  8. Compact Laser Drivers for Photoconductive Semiconductor Switches

    SBC: ASR Corporation            Topic: DTRA16A004

    A compact laser driver will allow photoconductive semiconductor switches to be used in small EMP simulator "building blocks" (EMPBB). Combined with a battery powered on-board pulsed power system, these EMPBBs will allow the construction of flexible EMP test facilities with nothing more than a single fiber optic timing connection to each EMPBB.

  9. Modular Pulse Charger and Laser Triggering System for Large-Scale EMP and HPM Applications

    SBC: Scientific Applications & Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: DTRA16A004

    For effective protection against EMP and HPM threats, it is important to understand the physics of the threats, and also to quantify the effects they have on electrical systems. EMP and HPM vulnerability testing requires delivery of high peak power and electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments is to develop a modular, optically-isolated MV-antenn ...

  10. Rapid Development of Weapon Payloads via Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: DTRA16A001

    MATSYS proposes to adapt emerging additive manufacturing techniques (so-called 3-D Printing) for use with reactive structural materials and demonstrate this capability to rapidly fabricate reactive case. Our concept incorporates two major manufacturing steps: 3D printing of green compacts from pure Al or Al-based reactive powder blend; and Microwave (MW) sintering of green compacts into net-shaped ...
