  2. Knowledge Base Population, Combination, Representation, and Reasoning, using Textual Rulelog, for Large and Diverse Knowledge Collections

    SBC: Coherent Knowledge Systems LLC            Topic: DTRA143005

    DTRA is faced with the challenge of extracting and effectively utilizing information from a very large and diverse set of natural language and structured data sources. Current methods often lack contextualization and are generally noisy, shallow, patchy, and overly low-level. We will develop a unifying, general, and elegant solution to address this challenge, based on the overall Textual Rulelog a ...

  5. Advanced Heat Spreader Technology for Gallium Nitride (GaN) Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMICs)

    SBC: Thermavant Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: N161052

    In this Phase I effort, ThermAvant will design, fabricate and empirically demonstrate high-thermal conductivity heat spreaders for high power GaN Power Amplifiers (PAs) on advanced Navy platforms. The Oscillating Heat Pipe (OHP) is the core technology that will enable demonstration of structurally sound, thin-profile heat spreaders that can attach to PAs and dissipate their high heat fluxes with m ...

  6. The Constructable Platform:Modular Architecture for a Persistent GEO Platform

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: SB161007

    The Constructable Platform effort will define a modular, reconfigurable, and expandable architecture for a platform in GEO to provide persistent support infrastructure for multiple, diverse payloads. The platforms reusability will enable the infrastructure cost to be amortized over multiple payloads, providing reductions in mission cost as well as reducing schedule and risk for fielding a new payl ...

  8. Contaminated Materiel Transfer Case


    With the global reach of our US military and civilian population, with the threat of use of chemical and biological warfare, and the spread of deadly viruses in the world; it has become necessary to have containment options for large scale transport of hazardous/contaminated materials that meet the strict national, international and US Air Force standards for air transport. In this Phase I SBIR, P ...

  9. Analysis of Integrated Circuits Using Limited X-rays

    SBC: LICKENBROCK TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DMEA152002

    There exists currently a need to non-destructively evaluate the construction of integrated circuits (ICs) that will ensure the trust of ICs used inmilitary systems, but designed and fabricated under untrusted conditions. An X-ray microscope (XRM) equipped with a lab X-ray source will beused to fill this need. The drawbacks to this system are prohibitively long acquisition times due to reduced X-ra ...

  10. NDI Tool for Heat Damage Detection in Composites

    SBC: Veritox            Topic: AF161121

    ABSTRACT: Incipient thermal damage (ITD) of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) composites cannot be detected by common nondestructive evaluation (NDE) methods, such as ultrasound or visual inspection.ITD, however, can reduce matrix dominated mechanical properties of composites and thus requires detection and evaluation to ensure the integrity of composite structures that may be subjected to th ...
