  1. Engineered Substrates for “Zero-Penalty” Radiation Hardening of Ultra Deep Submicron Commercial Processes

    SBC: RADIATION ASSURED DEVICES, INC.            Topic: DTRA08003

    In this proposed Phase II program we will build on the successful Phase I program where we for the first time implemented engineered epitaxial layers based on nanostructure technology that were used to harden commercial silicon devices against radiation by minimizing collected photocurrents (electron-hole pairs) via recombination centers where we demonstrated that improved radiation hardness could ...

  3. MAXIS (Mobile Aircraft X-ray Inspection System

    SBC: Marietta X-Ray, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Marietta X-Ray, Inc (MXRI) and its subcontractor Rapiscan Laboratories, Inc. propose to develop a mobile non-intrusive prototype that can demonstrate the capability of inspecting a complete general-aviation aircraft for concealed contraband. Our solution utilizes an existing vehicle and manipulator coupled with an x-ray inspection system. The x-ray system is based on backscatter technology, which ...

  4. Miniature and Reliale Chemical Sensors for Cell Phones

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: HSB081002

    In the event of a terrorist attack, the ability to measure the extent and location of the attack and rapidly notify first responders will be critical to saving lives. If the widespread use of cell phones could be harnessed with an ability to detect chemical threats and immediately notify authorities of the scope and location of the attack, public safety would be significantly enhanced. Synkera pro ...

  5. Portable System with Li Foil MWPC Neutron Detectors

    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 ...

  6. QUANTIFICATION OF CONSERVATISMS IN SEISMIC RISK ESTIMATES THROUGH ENGINEERING ADVANCEMENT OF SEISMIC PRA

    SBC: Risk Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SIGNIFICANT CONSERVATISM IN MODERN SEISMIC PRA DERIVES FROM SIMPLIFICATIONS IN GROUND-MOTION CHARACTERIZATION AT THE INTERFACE OF SEISMIC HAZARD AND FRAGILITY METHODOLOGIES. THIS CONSERVATISM ARISES BECAUSE A SINGLE COMPOSITE-MAGNITUDE, BROAD-BAND, GROUND-MOTION SPECTRUM IS USED TO DERIVE FRAGILITY FUNCTIONS, WHEREAS THE MAJORITY OF MOTIONS CONTRIBUTING TO SITE HAZARD HAVE (LESS-DAMAGING) NARROW-B ...

  7. SENSITIVE LOW Z STRAIN GAGE

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS ACTIVITY WILL INVESTIGATE THE USE OF PVDF FILM FOR USE AS A LOW Z STRAIN GAGE. THE PVDF MATERIAL IS AN ORDER OF MAGNITUDE MORE SENSITIVE THAN PZT AS A PIEZOELECTRIC MATERIAL AND HAS AN ATOMIC NUMBER MUCH LOWER (LOW Z) THAN PRESENT RESISTIVE STRAIN GAGE MATERIALS. THEREFORE, PVDF AS A STRAIN GAGE WILL BE CAPABLE OF MEASURING MUCH LOWER LEVELS OF STRAIN THAN PRESENT GAGING TECHNIQUES, AND WILL ...

  9. UGT INSTRUMENTATION FOR ELECTRICAL PARAMETER MEASUREMENT

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROGRAM WILL DEVELOP FIELD INSTRUMENTATION SUITABLE FOR USE IN AN UNDERGROUND (UGT) OR ABOVEGROUND (AGT) RADIATION TEST ENVIRONMENT, FOR THE MEASUREMENT OF ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES OF MATERIALS AS THEY RECOVER FROM IRRADIATION. THE EFFORT WILL CONSIST OF SAMPLE HOLDER AND INSTRUMENTATION DESIGN, RESPONSE ANALYSIS, AND THE FABRICATION OF A LABORATORY TEST SETUP TO SHOW TECHNIQUE FEASIBILITY.

  10. Wearable Smart Chemical Sensors

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: HSB0171006

    Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) are chemical substances that produce toxic effects if given in sufficient quantities and/or exposed for long durations. TICs are a great concern for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) since it would be easier for terrorists to obtain and use than CAs. There are many commercially available handheld and personal gas monitors to monitor TICs. However, the ...
