The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. A fast pulse, intermediate flux, bench-top, high rep-rate x-ray source for PRS diagnostic calibration

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: DTRA06013

    Presently, commercial and government radiation test facilities do not have convenient, reliable calibration systems for routine, day-in, day-out checks on x-ray and neutron detectors or their filter arrays. Lack of such calibration systems compromises the quality of the testing, and leads to wasted time and manpower resources used to resolve the ensuing uncertainties. We are developing a compact, ...

  2. Active Interrogation for Special Nuclear Materials (SNM) Detection Experimental Study

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: DTRA07003

    AASC’s objective is to mitigate the risk of implementing an active interrogation system based upon time of flight measurements. A fast pulse neutron source is a critical component of a time of flight system even at large stand off. This program directly addresses means to control the probe radiation pulse in a fast neutron source. In some concept of operations, pulse width is a larger concern ...

  3. "Typical day" Meteorological Data for Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion (ATD) Modeling

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: DTRA06004

    The complexity of Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion (ATD) modeling requires physically consistent weather data evolving in both space and time. Spatially and/or temporally averaged data found in climatological products is not suitable for ATD modeling. The proposed solution for providing "typical day" meteorological data couples innovative search techniques applied to long-range historical arch ...

  4. Active Interrogation System for Detecting and Identifying SNM

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07003

    Active interrogation holds the most promise for detecting heavily shielded materials at a distance. This effort will use pulsed neutron excitation of fission reactions in the target being inspected in conjunction with an imaging detector. Special nuclear material (SNM) that is present will undergo fission reactions that generate prompt and delayed neutrons which will be emitted by the target. Th ...

  5. Scintillation Detector with Fast-Neutron/Gamma ray Discrimination

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07001

    The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear missiles and “dirty bombs” are a serious threat in the world today and especially to the well-being of the United States. Preventing the spread of these nuclear weapons has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years, more so since the events on September 11, 2001 and its aftermath. The presence of nuclear weapons can ...

  6. Improvements in Scintillation Technology for Detection of Nuclear Radiation

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07004

    High-resolution scintillation crystals and crystal arrays are important components of current and future handheld and arrayed detectors (used for DOD applications) and scintillation spectrometers (routinely used in high energy physics research, medical imaging, diffraction, homeland security, nuclear waste clean-up, nuclear treaty verification and safeguards, and geological exploration). Unfortun ...

  7. Calibration of Ensemble Forecasts Using Reforecast Datasets

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC TECHNOLOGY SERVICES CO. LLC            Topic: DTRA06006

    Fine-scale, well-calibrated probabilistic weather forecasts are increasingly in demand for such weather-critical applications as battlespace management, and accurate prediction of high-value airborne operations. Built upon the Phase I effort we have just completed, the principal objective of this proposed study (Phase II) is to develop a reliable, efficient, and easily deployable reforecast-calibr ...

  8. Nanocomposite Scintillator for Detection of Nuclear Radiation

    SBC: BOSTON APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: DTRA07004

    Recent advances in scintillator materials research have resulted in the development of lanthanum halides detectors. These detectors offer improved energy resolution, faster emission and excellent temperature dependency and linearity characteristics. However, the lanthanum halides crystals have not yet been grown to preferred large sizes. Moreover, this material possesses a fatal drawback of being ...

  9. High Efficient Photodetectors

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: DTRA07004

    The goal of this effort is to demonstrate an high efficient photodetector to replace the conventional photo multiplier tubes (PMT) in gamma radiation detection process. In the proposed effort. Cermet will grow and fabricate ZnO based photodetectors for the detector of scintillated light in the wavelength region between 340 and 430nm. The proposed technology will bring an improved, high efficient p ...

  10. Neutralization Without Detonation of IEDs in the Field

    SBC: ENERGETIC MATERIALS AND PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: DTRA06007

    EMPI will develop a commercially viable prototype of the nanoenergetic bullet (NEB) that was successfully demonstrated in the Phase I program. The program involves a series of experiments in year-one to test the critical functions of the NEB to safely neutralize IEDs and UXO. The program will culminate in year-two with a series of live fire tests against 155 mm artillery shells. The technology exp ...
