  1. Autonomous navigation through small, confined spaces

    SBC: Greensight Agronomics, Inc.            Topic: DTRA182002

    GreenSight Agronomics (GSAg) is proposing to develop a man-portable, fully autonomous aerial mapping system to satisfy the goal of the solicitation: quickly and completely mapping a confined space with no human guidance. The vehicle will have a 400 mm frame size to provide an ideal balance between maneuverability, flight time, and payload capacity. We have chosen the Pixhawk platform running ArduP ...

  2. Materials Engineering of Alkali Halide and Rare Earth Halide Scintillators

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA182007

    Scintillators are the major components of radiation detection systems used in identification of Special Nuclear Materials.One of their key properties is the energy resolution (ER) that links directly to isotope identification capabilities.Typically the ER for scintillators varies from 3% (at 662 keV, FWHM) for the best materials to more common 6-7%.At the moment, many detectors use latter material ...

  3. Innovative Materials Engineering and Growth of a High Performance and Low Cost Scintillator

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: DTRA182007

    The goal of this program is to produce radiation detector scintillators with enhanced-medium energy resolution of 2-3%, at costs approaching those of medium energy resolution detectors such as CsI.To achieve this goal, a two pronged approach will be pursued.First, we will employ materials engineering tools to improve the performance of an existing scintillator with superior attributes.Second, an i ...

  4. Alternative Signature Detectors for Long Range Nuclear Material Identification

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162003

    Increasing the distance for standoff detection of nuclear materials, beyond that capable with direct radiation detection, using alternative signatures, such as the concentration of ionization in the surrounding atmosphere, improves the ability to locate, track and monitor this material.Ionizing radiation generates free elections, ions, and exited states in the nearby atmosphere, even when the sour ...

  5. CANTEAN: Cave and Narrow Tunnel Exploration and Navigation

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: DTRA182002

    In response to the DTRA182-002 solicitation, we propose CANTEAN: Cave and Narrow Tunnel Exploration and Navigation, a flying system that employs the use of low-SWaP sensors and processors using advanced algorithms for rapid navigation and mapping of unknown, subterranean areas as part of a heterogeneous team.Bio-inspired obstacle avoidance and navigation and the efficient exchange and merging of s ...

  6. Decentralized, Public, and Mobile-Based Sidewalk Inventory Tool

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 142FH1

    Knowledge Based Systems, Inc. (KBSI) is pleased to propose the further design and development of MySidewalk mobile application facilitating the crowd-sourced collection of sidewalk inventory and condition data. The MySidewalk application utilizes advances in social networks and data mining to provide integrated sidewalk datasets. Phase I and II research was facilitated by inputs from City of Colle ...

  7. Long Life, Low Cost Mini-Roundabouts from Simple Modular Shapes and Recycled

    SBC: ZKxKZ, LLC            Topic: 142FH3

    In Phase II, ZKxKZ designed, developed and demonstrated an approach for fabrication and rapid installation of low cost modular mini-roundabouts made from recycled plastic boards. Phase II culminated in the installation of one full modular mini-roundabout in both Georgia and Virginia. In addition, 3 modular mini-roundabouts were commercially sold and installed in Canada prior to the SBIR funded sit ...

  8. Collaboration-Optimized Network for Naturalistic Exploration and Communication about Traffic

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: 180NH2

    Current access to and analysis of the Fatal Analysis Reporting System (FARS) dataset requires significant time and technical skill. Data analysis tools are often general-purpose, designed to support the analysis of any dataset, and do not easily support the types of questions many transportation and safety engineers ask of the FARS data. Visualizations can help users understand relationships betwe ...
