  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. Semantic Analysis Technologies for the Identification of Dual Use Research of Concern (STIR)

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: DTRA172004

    The goal of this project is to design and develop Semantic Analysis Technologies for the Identification of Dual Use Research of Concern (STIR). STIR processes scientific documents using semantic technologies and inference algorithms to identify potential for Dual Use Research of Concern (DURC). The focus is on 15 high consequence pathogens and toxins and 7 experimental categories identified as DUR ...

  3. Non-Saturating, Real-Time Battlefield Dosimeter

    SBC: PROPORTIONAL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA172007

    During the Phase I effort, Proportional Technologies, Inc. developed non-saturating components for a military battlefield dosimeter based on ionization chamber technology. Chambers were thimble-shaped, made out of carbon, and incorporated different materials for the conversion of fast neutrons, thermal neutrons, and gamma radiation. Extensive testing showed that the proposed solution is feasible. ...

  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. 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 ...
