  1. Multimode Chiroptical Spectrometer for Nanoparticle Characterization

    SBC: Applied Nanofluorescence LLC            Topic: None

    This project will develop a new scientific instrument optimized for the advanced characterization of near-infrared fluorescent nanoparticles that can exist as left- or right-handed structures (enantiomers). Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are the leading current example of such nanomaterials. Applied NanoFluorescence, LLC (ANF) proposes a novel multi-mode chiroptical spectrometer that can ...

  2. Data-Driven Technology Discovery Methodologies

    SBC: Semandex Networks Inc.            Topic: DTRA162005

    During the Phase I effort, Semandex Networks and its team developed a prototype capability to detect trends in research publications by automatically identifying emerging concepts within the data. The implemented capability provides insights into past and

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

    SBC: LANGUAGE COMPUTER CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA152005

    In Phase II of JOLTER, we will develop several extensions and improvements upon the probabilistic graphical models developed in Phase I for discovering topics, entities, and relations jointly. The system will be able to (1) Discover and extend hierarchies of topics, entities, and relations; (2) Discover categories for events, multiway relations, and their roles; (3) Conditionalize the topics, ent ...

  4. Fiber Pigtailed On-Chip Mid-infrared Difference Frequency Generation in Silicon

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: NA

    We propose a fiber-pigtailed strained silicon platform for tunable difference frequency generation (DFG) in mid-infrared (MIR) with tunable continuous wave near-infrared (NIR) sources. Stress exerted by silicon nitride induces second-order nonlinear susceptibility c(2) on underlying centro-symmetric silicon. NIR light is coupled into silicon and MIR light is coupled out of silicon using sub-wavele ...

  5. Knowledge Exploitation and Population for Event Reasoning (KEPLER) Phase II

    SBC: LANGUAGE COMPUTER CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA143005

    In Phase II of KEPLER, we will develop a prototype Knowledge Base (KB) expansion system that employs rich common-sense knowledge resources to perform high-quality scalable inference over a KB. The system will be able to (1) extract event parameters, event constructs, ontological relationships, definitional effects and inferences, and quantitative expectations from open text and structured resource ...

  6. Secure Email Agent Using the Domain Name System (DNS) as a Trust Infrastructure

    SBC: GRIER FORENSICS, LLC            Topic: 9020377R

    Although protocols for securing email have been available for over twenty years, these protocols, by nature of their use of asymmetric cryptography, require users to have the public key or certificate of the correspondents. Grier Forensics will develop technology to use the Domain Name System (DNS) to distribute certificates and keys, making email secure, authenticated, and confidential, curbing t ...

  7. ANALYSIS OF HANE 0-10 SECOND MHD EMP

    SBC: AUSTIN RESEARCH ASSOCIATES            Topic: N/A

    MODELING OF THE AMBIENT AND PROMPT IONOSPHERIC REGIONS IN A THIN LAYER APPROXIMATION ALLOWS AN EFFICIENT METHOD OF DETERMINING THE TIME EVOLUTION, PROPAGATION, AND SIGNAL STRENGTH OF THE 0-10 SECOND MHD EMP ASSOCIATED WITH HIGH ALTITUDE NUCLEAR DETONATIONS.
