  1. Indoor Formaldehyde Detection by a Low-Cost Chemical Sensor Based on Organic Nanofibers

    SBC: Vaporsens, Inc.            Topic: 16NCER1A

    Need: People are exposed to formaldehyde, a carcinogen found in building materials. Highly sensitive, real-time formaldehyde sensors would improve human safety by alerting users to harmful concentrations. _x000D_ _x000D_ Technical Feasibility: Vaporsens produces chemical sensors based on novel organic nanofiber technology. Phase 1 results demonstrated high selectivity, rapid-response time, and dem ...

  3. Novel Methods to Measure Penetrator Dynamics in Multi-Layer Geometries

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07011

    In Phase I of this effort we analyzed the structural response of a BLU 109 during typical penetration events. Based on these finite element results, we proposed and demsonstrated a simple robust concept for a passive penetrator sensor that identifies the material being penetrated and also correlates strongly with its underground trajectory. Such a sensor would obviously provide valuable informatio ...

  4. Real-Time Portable Neutron Spectroscopy

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: DTRA07002

    A critical gap in homeland security is the inability to efficiently detect and identify kilogram-size samples of Special Nuclear Materials (SNM, uranium and transuranic elements). Penetrating neutron emission is unique to fissionable material and difficult to obscure with passive shielding. The current state of the art in neutron imaging is not suitable for field applications. Michigan Aerospace ...

  5. The Characterization and Mitigation of Single Event Effects in Ultra-Deep Submicron (< 90nm) Microelectronics

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07005

    Orora Design Technologies proposes to develop electronic design automation (EDA) tools employing minimally invasive circuit design-based methods to mitigate single event effects (SEEs) for next generation Ultra-DSM CMOS (

  6. Minerals Recovery of Copper Stamp Sand on Lake Superior Coastline for use as Raw Material in the Manufacture of Roofing Shingles: Phase 2

    SBC: Lesktech Limited            Topic: 07NCERP1

    Stamp sands (a waste tailing product) from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan copper mining days were examined in the Phase I portion of this study for its application possibilities in the asphalt roofing shingle market as a laptop granule. Through rigorous testing we found the larger particle size portion of the byproduct to be economically and environmentally applicable as roofing granules (G-sand) ...
