  2. Advanced high-efficiency semiconductor neutron detectors of annular ring design

    SBC: Mocha Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is for the design and development of advanced high-efficiency semiconductor thermal neutron detectors in both silicon and silicon carbide. These detectors will provide detectors with neutron conversion efficiency exceeding 40%, depending on detector configuration. The use of annular ring design features eliminates neutron streaming and other undesirable effects of previous perforated ...

  3. SPECIAL MONITOR DETECTOR DEVELOPMENT FOR RESPIRATOR CONTAMINATION

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    IMPLEMENTATION OF AN INTEGRATED DETECTION SYSTEM FOR CONTAMINATION MONITORING OF RESPIRATORS HAS BEEN PROBLEMATIC. BECAUSE OF THE COMPLEX SURFACES, HAND MONITORING USING PORTABLE SURVEY INSTRUMENTATION HAS BEEN THE PREFERRED METHOD. HAND MONITORING IS COSTLY IN TIME AND OFTEN FAILS TO RELIABLY ACHIEVE A GIVEN DETECTION LIMIT BECAUSE OF VARIABLES SUCH AS SURVEY SPEED ANDDISTANCE FROM THE PROBE. THE ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF A CONTAMINATION MONITOR USING VISUAL IDENTIFICATION

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL RESEARCH AND DEVELOP A FLOOR MONITOR FOR QUICK DETERMINATION OF RADIOACTIVE CONTAMINATION. THE MONITOR WILL UTILIZE A NEW PORTABLE TECHNOLOGY (INCLUDING SUPPORT ELECTRONICS). IT WILL HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO MEASURE BETA CONTAMINATION BELOW 5000 DPM/100 CM SQUARED WHEN AVERAGED OVER ONE SQUARE METER AND COVER AN AREA AS LARGE AS SEVERAL SQUARE FEET PER SECOND. IT WILL ALSO BE CAPAB ...

  6. Low Stress Growth of Barium Bromine Iodide Scintillators

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: SBIR111003

    The recent discovery of Eu activated alkali-earth halide scintillators promises to revolutionize remote detection and identification of radioisotopes. This proposal addresses the development of methods for production of large-volume, high-quality Barium Bromine Iodide scintillators. High-quality, low-cost scintillators for detection of gamma-rays are needed for monitoring of nuclear non-proliferat ...

    SBIR Phase I 2011 Department of Homeland Security
  7. A Detection System for Determining the Concentration, Size, and Depth of Buried Radioactive Material

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase II 1996 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  8. DEVELOPMLENT OF A LAUNDRY MONITOR FOR DETECTION OF HOT PARTICLE CONTAMINATION

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    TWO APPROACHES WILL BE EXAMINED TO SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THESENSITIVITY OF LAUNDRY MONITORS TO DETECT AND SPECIFY LOCATION OF HOT PARTICLES ON LAUNDERED GARMENTS. THESE PROPOSED TECNIQUES HAVE HIGH POTENTIAL FOR DETECTING BOTH LOW ENERGY BETA AND ALPHA PARTICLE RADIATION AS WELL AS IMPROVING SENSITIVITY BY REDUCING BACKGROUND COUNT RATE.

    SBIR Phase II 1990 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  9. Swimmer Detection

    SBC: Alaska Native Technologies, LLC            Topic: HSB051004

    The United States Coast Guard`s homeland security mission includes providing security for 361 ports and 95,000 miles of US Coastline. This coastline is susceptible to both criminal and terrorist attack. Waterside facilities and critical infrastructure are especially vulnerable to attack from on or under water. Alaska Native Technologies, LLC (ANT) propose using broadband active sonar technology co ...

    SBIR Phase I 2005 Department of Homeland Security
  10. A Low Cost AIS Class B Compliant Small Vessel Tracking and Collision Avoidance System

    SBC: International Maritime Information Systems USA, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this proposed research is to determine the feasibility of developing and commercializing an innovative, low cost, high performance small boat tracking and collision avoidance device. Small boats are defined as being floating craft that fall into the category of port vessels, leisure, un-powered and small fishing craft. The device would be compatible with the Automatic Identification Sy ...
