  1. Fast Vacuum Isolation Valve for Debris Mitigation

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA143007

    Nuclear weapons effects (NWE) testing and other experiments conducted with plasma radiation sources require that test articles be exposed to radiation but protected from fast moving debris generated by a high power source event. Solid barriers or membranes are unacceptable because they attenuate the desired radiation, and physical shutters of reasonable size and complexity have difficulty reaching ...

  2. Knowledge Exploitation and Population for Event Reasoning (KEPLER)

    SBC: LANGUAGE COMPUTER CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA143005

    In Phase I of KEPLER, we will demonstrate how customizing extraction techniques for knowledge base population will allow us to capture and reason with the rich semantics of events and actions. We will demonstrate (1) how to extract event parameters, event construals, and inter-event relations which can form several composite event constructs; (2) how to reason with a KB focusing on events by combi ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Advanced Electromagnetic Shutter for Hypervelocity Debris Mitigation

    SBC: HYPERION TECHNOLOGY GROUP, INC.            Topic: DTRA143007

    The proposed ultra-fast shutter achieves all design requirements for hypervelocity debris mitigation in the EUV cold x-ray Z-machine experiment using a high reliability magneforming shutter which has been field tested hundreds of times under conditions very similar to the Z-pinch machine. The proposed device is based upon the electromagnetic hypervelocity debris mitigation shutter put into operati ...

  5. Lithography Cost Reduction for Rad Hard Integrated Circuits

    SBC: LUMARRAY INC.            Topic: DTRA143008

    LumArray proposes in Phase I to demonstrate that its direct-write maskless-photolithography system, the ZP-150, is capable of performing aligned cuts in 1D-grids suitable for the 45 nm node, in addition to writing patterns of arbitrary geometry as required in custom ASICs and a wide range of other DoD and Aerospace applications. In Phase II LumArray will propose to make upgrades to its ZP-150 syst ...

  6. Lithography Cost Reduction for Rad Hard Integrated Circuits

    SBC: SILICON TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA143008

    This program will combine Silicon Technologies analog automation technology ADONIS with EBDW technology.This combination will reduce design times and costs for Analog Trusted circuits and will facilitate reuse of obsolete, radiation-hardened, precision analog components. Originally funded by the DARPA GRATES program, ADONIS demonstrated that with analog specific modifications, ADONIS Straight Line ...

  7. Post-detonation Debris Analysis by Micro-ESR Spectroscopy for the Advancement of the Nuclear Forensics Timeline

    SBC: Active Spectrum, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143009

    Electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy is a widely used forensic technique to study post-nuclear debris fields, radiation-induced damage in solids and many other phenomena surrounding the interaction of radioactivity with solid matter. ESR spectroscopy is also used to analyze dust, smoke and other gaseous samples. Our Micro-ESR technology has the benefit of being an extremely robust, lightweig ...

  8. High Resolution Tunable Spatial Heterodyne Spectrometer for Post-Detonation Debris Analysis in Nuclear Forensics

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: DTRA143009

    We propose the development new kind of high resolution tunable spatial heterodyne spectrometer for nuclear forensics. Preliminary results have shown that this spatial heterodyne spectrometer can be made compact without sacrificing its high resolving power for isotopic attribution of nuclear materials. Thus, the spatial heterodyne spectrometer will be able to provide the origins of nuclear material ...
