  1. 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. 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 ...

  4. Enhancing Administrator Coaching of Classroom Teachers

    SBC: Liveschool Inc.            Topic: 99190018R0005

    Purpose: In previous research and development, the team created LiveSchool, a technology for teachers to report student behavior in their class. In this project, the team will fully develop and test ClassCoach, a dashboard for administrators to track student behavior and to recommend resources teachers can use to address student behavioral needs in their classes. Over the past several years, schoo ...

  5. Integrated Multi-mode Handheld RIID

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA152007

    The goal of the project is to develop a handheld instrument that detects, identifies, and categorizes radioactive sources based on gamma, thermal-, and fast-neutron signatures. Existing radioisotope identification devices (RIIDs) are typically biased toward gamma spectroscopy; some instruments may use an additional inefficient neutron counter in form of a He-3 tube. The recent development of mat ...

  6. Encapsulated HI3O8 Microparticles Phase II

    SBC: AKITA INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: DTRA143002

    This Phase 2 project will further develop and scale a manufacturing process for the production of 5-25 kilogram quantities of encapsulated HI3O8 with a particle size of approximately 2 m and other sizes as desired by the sponsor. This project addresses the need to develop manufacturing processes and build a production capability for the manufacture of HI3O8 a halogen-containing chemical reagent f ...

  7. Standoff Detector using Large-Volume Advanced Scintillation Materials

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA152008

    From 1993 to 2013, sixteen incidents involving highly enriched uranium associated with illegal activity has been reported to the IAEA.A gun-type of weapon would require roughly 25 kg of highly enriched uranium (HEU), which is easily deployed.Part of the defense is layered detection using standoff detection.Though detection of HEU is difficult, RMD has developed a number of large-volume scintillati ...

  8. Advanced Fast Shutter for Debris Mitigation

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143007

    In an effort to development more robust optical system coatings DTRA, in collaboration with Sandia National Labs, is working to characterize the degradation of optical materials for space systems when exposed to high intensely EUV/ cold x-rays. The experiments utilizes the Double Eagle z-pinch facility which generates high current, high voltage arc pinch plasma to produce an intense EUV and cold x ...

  9. Novel Munition Technologies to Attack and Defeat Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143004

    Traditional weapon systems often fail to meet the requirements of close combat typical of the previously discussed engagement, where insurgents often blend in or store weapon amongst friendly or non-combatant forces, to shield them from precision strike munitions of a technologically superior force. This type of warfare has led to an increased focus on the use of less-lethal weapons, to reduce let ...

  10. Cyberchase Fractions Quest

    SBC: FABLE VISION, INC.            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    The final product is Cyberchase Fractions Quest—a math game based on the storyline of PBS children's television series, Cyberchase. In the game, students in grades 3 and 4 will apply learning fractions within three contexts: areas and regions (such as shapes), sets (groups of objects), and on a number line. The game will identify specific areas where students struggle and will introduce challeng ...
