SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC. Topic: DTRA16A004
For effective protection against EMP and HPM threats, it is important to understand the physics of the threats, and also to quantify the effects they have on electrical systems. EMP and HPM vulnerability testing requires delivery of high peak power and electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments is to develop a modular, optically-isolated MV-antenn ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
SBC: RELIABLE MICROSYSTEMS LLC Topic: DTRA16A003
Establish a radiation-aware analysis capability in a commercial EDA design flow that will enable first-pass success in radiation-hardened by design (RHBD) for DoD ASICs in much the same way that existing EDA design suites ensure first pass functionality and performance success of complex ASICs destined for commercial applications. Layout-aware, calibrated single-event radiation models that captur ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
Development of powder bed printing (3DP) for rapid and flexible fabrication of energetic material payloads and munitionsSBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC. Topic: DTRA16A001
This program will demonstrate how additive manufacturing technologies can be used with reactive and high energy materials to create rapid and flexible fabrication of payload and munitions. Our primary approach to this problem will be to use powder bed binder printing techniques to print reactive structures. The anticipated feedstock will consist of composite particles containing all reactant spe ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
SBC: UES INC Topic: DTRA16A004
Compact Electromagnetic Pulse Module (EMP) capable of being arranged in series-parallel planar or cylindrical arrays is needed to simulate nuclear weapon effects. High gain optically triggered photoconductive semiconductor switches (PCSS) based on Gallium arsenide (GaAs) with low timing jitter enables the development of planar or phased arrays of modular EMP or High Power Microwave (HPM) sources. ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
Hybrid DNN-based Transfer Learning and CNN-based Supervised Learning for Object Recognition in Multi-modal Infrared ImagerySBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: 1
On this effort Toyon Research Corp. and The Pennsylvania State University are developing deep learning-based algorithms for object recognition and new class discovery in look-down infrared (IR) imagery. Our approach involves the development of a hybrid classifier that exploits both transfer learning and semi-supervised paradigms in order to maintain good generalization accuracy, especially when li ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNational Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
SBC: SIGNATURE RESEARCH, INC. Topic: 1
Signature Research, Inc. (SGR) and Michigan Technological University (MTU) propose a Phase I STTR effort to develop a learning algorithm which exploits the spatio-spectral characteristics inherent within IR imagery and motion imagery.Our archive of modelled and labeled data sets will allow our team to thoroughly capture the variable elements that will drive machine learning performance.The overall ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNational Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
SBC: RADIATION DETECTION TECHNOLOGIES, INC. Topic: DTRA14B005
At the completion of the research and development effort a Li-foil multi-wire proportional counter (MWPC) neutron detector with more than 625-cm2 of active area will be included in a portable radiation detection system. The system is expected to outperform the standards set by the ANSI N42.53 standards, and gamma-ray rejection ratio (GRR) of 1.0x10-8 or better. A gamma-ray spectrometer for isotope ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
SBC: NALAS ENGINEERING SERVICES INC Topic: DTRA14B001
Nalas Engineering and Johns Hopkins University collaborated in a Phase I STTR program to study reactive mixtures of HI3O8 and nanocomposite fuels previously developed by the Weihs Group. These fuel/oxidizer mixtures are uniquely able to simultaneously produce heat and biocidal iodine gas, a combination designed to destroy biological weapons. The team at Nalas focused on evaluating conditions for p ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency

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 ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC Topic: DTRA19B001
Improving the effectiveness of counter-WMD operations requires improved understanding of weapon-target interaction. Specifically, time-resolved measurements of temperature and composition are required to allow temporal evolution of a detonation fireball. To address this need, SA Photonics will develop MONITOR, a laser-based temperature diagnostic that will enable wide dynamic range temperature mea ...STTR Phase I 2020 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
