  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. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  3. Direct Performance Evaluation of Additive Manufacturing Process Plans

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: None

    Additive manufacturing is steadily advancing towards fulfilling its promise of customized and on-demand production of functional parts. However, performance of as-manufactured parts can differ significantly from the as-designed parts because the as-manufactured geometry differs from the as-designed geometry and the asmanufactured material properties are not known. Attempts to predict performance o ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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. ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Non-thermal Plasma Synthesis and Passivation of Halogen Containing Chemical Reagents for Prompt-Agent-Defeat Weapons

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: DTRA143002

    Use of high explosives for neutralization of bio-agent stockpiles results in unintentional release of live bio-agents to the surrounding environment most of the time. New biocide containing energetic formulations (such as Al nanoparticles-I2O5) overcome the shortcomings of high explosive approach. Since I2O5 is water or moisture sensitive and loses its biocide properties over time, it needs to be ...
