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.

  3. A GREEN AND UNIQUE THERMOSETTING-THERMOPLASTIC POLYCARBONATE

    SBC: INSTRUMENTAL POLYMER TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 16NCER2B

    Of the 300 million tons of plastic produced per year most will require 500 years to biodegrade. Currently only 9% is recycled, and 50 million tons of thermoset plastic produced annually that can't be recycled. _x000D_ _x000D_ This project will develop a sustainable and easily biodegradable polycarbonate plastic that is uniquely a recyclable thermoset resin. We call it a thermosetting thermoplastic ...

  4. Mobile Analytical Platform for Lead Detection in Drinking Water

    SBC: NANOSAFE, INC.            Topic: 16NCER4C

    The drinking water crisis in Flint, Michigan reminds us that lead remains dangerous and insidious toxicant that can impact public health for months or years before it is detected and remedied.Increasing awareness of lead contamination has motivated the general public to test their own drinking water, but few tools are availiable to help these "citizen scientist" do so effectively.Current lead scre ...

  6. Cooperative RF-Trail Based closed, confined, and constrained Environment Navigation System

    SBC: PRIXARC, LLC            Topic: DTRA182002

    Small multirotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are well suited for sensing and situational awareness missions in closed, confined, and constrained (C3) environments. However, autonomous navigation of small VTOL UAVs is very challenging in C3 environments. Current state of the art navigation methods uses vision and LIDAR to build a map, localize, and plan paths.These methods tend to be computatio ...

  7. Cyclone Collection system for Radionuclide Detection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA182006

    The detection of radionuclide aerosols is a critical indicator of a nuclear detonation. Existing sensors as part of the International Monitoring System operate in a batch process and typically have a 48 to 72 hour delay between aerosol sample collection and measurement activities due to limits of instrument sensitivity. The continuous, instantaneous measurements of atmospheric aerosol radiation le ...

  8. High Efficiency Cyclone Separator for Sub-micron Particle Concentration

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA182006

    The Radionuclide Aerosol Sampler and Analyzer (RASA) is a completely automated monitoring system that detects airborne radioactive particles and is one of the detection systems used in the U.S. and global International Monitoring System (IMS) of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) to detect nuclear detonations. Mainstream proposes develop a high-efficiency cyclone separa ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
