  1. 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 ...

  2. Production of Chemical Reagents for Prompt-Agent-Defeat Weapons

    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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Integrated Protein/Nucleic Acid Microarray CB Detector

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: DTRA03008

    The objective of the proposed program is to develop a portable, low-cost, label-free (reagentless), microarray system capable of near real-time simultaneous detection and identification of multiple analytes (bacteria, viruses, spores, toxins) with high sensitivity and low false alarm rate. Notably, the system will be capable of detection/identification of agents on the basis of protein and/or nuc ...

  5. Machine learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (SNM)

    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 t ...

  6. Radiation Effects in Semiconductor Electronics

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05001

    In this SBIR proposal, Orora Design Technologies, teaming up with Vanderbilt University and Oregon State University, and with the support from Boeing Solid-State Electronics, proposes to develop innovative mixed-mode (physics and device) and mixed-level(circuit and behavioral) simulation capacities for combined simulation of radiation and electrical performance to speed up simulation in rad hard d ...

  7. Low Cost Manufacturing Process for Sodium Iodide Detectors

    SBC: XL Sci Tech Inc            Topic: DTRA05014

    An unconventional, continuous, and flexible manufacturing process is proposed for the production of sodium iodide detectors. The steps of crystal growing and substantially simplified detector machining are integrated into one streamline process based on proven techniques with minimal capital investment. This new production process will drastically reduce the manufacturing cost. A leading commerc ...
