The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. 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 ...

  2. Thermal and Fast Neutron Multiplicity Counter

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162007

    Neutron multiplicity can provide effective detection and identification of shielded Special Nuclear Materials based on analysis of the time correlated neutron multiplicity distribution. RMD is developing two key materials for such applications: Cs2LiYCl6:Ce (CLYC) scintillator and dual-mode plastics.CLYC offers efficient thermal neutron detection and excellent separation between gamma and neutron ...

  3. Prediction of Emergent SCIENce and Technology (PRESCIENT)

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: DTRA162005

    We propose to develop Prediction of Emergent SCIENce & Technology (PRESCIENT), a system that mines a text corpus of scientific patents and publications to discover emerging technologies that may impact WMD or CWMD. PRESCIENT will take as input patents and

  4. Bioinformatics: Data Integration for Biomonitoring Applications

    SBC: Arete Associates, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162002

    Aret Associates and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) propose an interdisciplinary effort to further develop and validate a robust, operational biomonitoring application that can process soil microbiome data to reliably detect episodic and low-level chronic contamination while maintaining low false alarm rate.The Phase II SBIR work will build upon the successful Phase I proof-of-concept demonst ...

  5. Portable, Fieldable, Non- Helium-3 Based Neutron Multiplicity Counter

    SBC: PROPORTIONAL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA162007

    Neutron coincidence counters are currently based on 3H technology. A worldwide 3He shortage plus the need for significant improvements in performance necessitate the development of a new class of neutron detectors. We propose the use of boron-coated straw

  6. DLeN: Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material

    SBC: CLOSTRA, INC.            Topic: DTRA162001

    Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (DLeN) applies the same deep learning techniques that allow computers to beat human performance in image recognition and the game of Go to detecting Special Nuclear Material. Spectral analysis and signal processing can in some cases be augmented by the use of much larger neural nets that conduct much deeper analysis of features of th ...

  7. Compact Laser Drivers for Photoconductive Semicond

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: DTRA16A004

    For effective protection against radiated threats, it is important to understand not only the physics of the threats, but also to quantify the effects they have on mission-critical electrical systems. Radiated vulnerability and susceptibility testing requires delivery of high peak power and peak electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments on large ...

  9. Hierarchical, Layout-Aware, Radiation Effects Tools Vertically Integrated into an EDA Design Flow for Rad-Hard by Design

    SBC: Reliable MicroSystems, LLC            Topic: DTRA16A003

    The goal of this workis to establish a radiation-aware capability in a commercial EDA design flow that will enable first-pass success in radiation resiliency for DoD ASIC designs in much the same way that existing EDA design suites ensure first pass functionality and performance success of complex ASICs destined for commercial applications.Such an integrated capability does not presently exist.The ...

  10. Real-Time Frequency-Selective Fading Channel Realization Generator

    SBC: WELKIN SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: DTRA122020

    During Phase I and a first Phase II, Welkin Sciences developed the Channel Realization Generator (CReG) algorithm, an enhanced functional replacement for the ACIRF code intended to be embedded into software link simulations and HWIL fading channel simulators. The proposed second Phase II effort will refine the CReG documentation and its software and firmware implementations. Many in the strategic ...
