  1. A Compact and Fast Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR) Spectroscopy System for Aerosol Combustion

    SBC: OPTICSLAH, LLC            Topic: DTRA182003

    We propose developing new instrumentation based on swept-wavelength external cavity quantum cascade lasers (swept-ECQCLs), to acquire physical/chemical data on chemical weapon agent (CWA) and simulant properties in laboratory-scale explosive testing, and to improve/validate computational fluid dynamics (CFD) codes. In Phase I, we demonstrated laboratory measurements of CWA simulant combustion usin ...

  2. Multi-Platform 3D Radiation Mapping with Enhanced Sensor Data Fusion and Visualization

    SBC: Gamma Reality Inc.            Topic: DTRA192005

    GRI will develop the capability to fuse 3D map and radiation data from multiple 3D radiation mapping systems in real-time into a single, cohesive global map of an operating environment. This new capability will automatically fuse 3D map and radiation data from the GRI Localization and Mapping Platform (LAMP) systems on ground vehicles and unmanned aerial systems (UASs). This capability will be bui ...

  3. Development of Camera-Motion Insensitive Dynamic Digital Photogrammetry Using Digital Image Correlation

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA192007

    Toyon will develop and deliver a software prototype implementing algorithms for 3D/4D reconstruction using high-speed-camera and navigation data collected by two UAVs. We will test the software in conditions including both small and larger scenes with collection of ground truth data for moving scenes. We will perform multiple airborne data collections with two UAVs carrying high-speed cameras and ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. KMI-aware Mesh Network NSA Certifiable Cryptographic Solution

    SBC: Arkham Technology Limited            Topic: HQ085021S000106

    With incoming hypersonic and ballistic threats, the Optical Intersatellite Link (OISL) system must transfer large quantities of data in real-time across a mesh network of satellite crosslinks, and back-and-forth with the ground. Very high-speed, low-latency, mesh network encryptors are available on the ground; however, no interoperable National Security Agency (NSA) certified devices currently exi ...

  9. Target Recognition and Acquisition in Complex Environments (TRACE)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: HQ085021S000108

    The Space Development Agency’s (SDA) Tracking Layer is tasked with providing global indications, warning, tracking, and targeting of advanced missile threats, including hypersonic missile systems. They are currently leading the development of an Overhead Persistent Infrared (OPIR) Missile Tracking satellite constellation in LEO as part of the DoD’s future threat-driven National Defense Space A ...

    STTR Phase I 2021 Department of DefenseSpace Development Agency


    The potential of explosive energetics has long elicited the need for understanding, control, and optimization. Scientific theory, development, and experimental investigations collaborate to create applications for offensive and defensive strategies. Visual evidence of ionization, subsequent recombination, and shockwave interaction indicate that dynamic electrical potential distributions are intrin ...
