  1. Multimode Organic Scintillators for Neutron/Gamma Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA19B003

    There is significant interest in multi-functional materials enabling gamma-ray spectroscopy, neutron/gamma pulse shape discrimination (PSD), ultra-fast response, and time-of-flight (TOF) neutron detection. These materials would be used in a variety of mission scenarios for the localization and monitoring of special nuclear materials. Commercial inorganic scintillators offer some of these character ...

  2. High Energy Resolution Mixed-Halide Elpasolite Scintillators for Next Generation RIID

    SBC: CapeSym, Inc            Topic: DTRA18B003

    The ability to discriminate between threatening and benign sources depends on the sensitivity, accuracy, and identification speed of the detection equipment. High energy resolution of the radionuclide sensor is necessary to decrease the likelihood of false identification. However, few scintillators achieve better than 3% energy resolution at 662 keV, and none exceed 2.5%. The goal of this effort i ...

  3. Mixed Elpasolite Scintillators

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA18B003

    The goal of this program is to develop the mixed elpasolite scintillators in order to achieve an energy resolution of  (≤ 2.5% (approaching 2%) at 662 keV for crystal sizes of up to 2 inch by 2 inch.  In this project we will investigate compositional changes in selected mixed-elpasolite(s) in order to achieve very high energy resolution.  By incorporating 6Li, neutron detection will also be t ...

  4. Marburg Virus Prophylactic Medical Countermeasure

    SBC: Flow Pharma, Inc.            Topic: CBD18A002

    Through this STTR contract, we propose to evaluate the efficacy of our vaccine, FlowVax Marburg, in nonhuman primates (NHPs). This will be achieved through four Tasks. In Task 1, we will manufacture the vaccine in a quantity sufficient for the animal studies. In Task 2, we will perform MHC genotyping on a representative population of NHPs and, based on results, select a set of MHC-matched NHPs for ...

  5. Marburg Virus Prophylactic Medical Countermeasure

    SBC: MAPP BIOPHARMACEUTICAL, INC.            Topic: CBD18A002

    There are currently no vaccines or therapeutics available for Marburg Virus Disease (MVD). Given the specter of weaponization and the terrible morbidity and high mortality rate of MVD, this represents a critical threat to the operational readiness of the Warfighter. While traditional vaccines have contributed greatly to public health, they have some limitations especially in the context of operati ...

  6. Novel Circulating RNA-based Markers as Diagnostic Biomarkers of Infectious Diseases

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD18A001

    In resource limited settings, rapid and accurate diagnosis of infections is critical for managing potential exposures to highly virulent pathogens, whether occurring from an act of bioterrorism or a natural event. This is especially important for hard to detect intracellular bacterial and alphavirus infections, that overlap symptomatically and often treated empirically due to a lack of reliable an ...

  7. Hardened, Optically-Based Temperature Characterization of Detonation Environments

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: DTRA19B001

    Improving the effectiveness of counter-WMD operations requires improved understanding of weapon-target interaction. Specifically, time-resolved measurements of temperature and composition are required to allow temporal evolution of a detonation fireball. To address this need, SA Photonics will develop MONITOR, a laser-based temperature diagnostic that will enable wide dynamic range temperature mea ...

  8. Semantic Models for the Identification of Laboratory Equipment (SMILE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: DTRA19B002

    Military operators must identify and catalogue the equipment they find when inspecting laboratory facilities. This information is used to determine the lab’s capabilities, including the lab’s potential for building weapons of mass destruction. Currently, operators use computer vision algorithms to help them classify equipment in pictures of laboratory environments. Unfortunately, current image ...

  9. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is crucial to detect proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions from radioactive isotopes, and (b) cost-effectiveness for deployment of sensor networks across large storage facil ...

  10. Infectious Disease Diagnostics and Differentiation of Viral vs. Bacterial Infections for Point of Care Applications

    SBC: GENECAPTURE            Topic: CBD15C001

    The modern warfighter faces the constant threat of endemic infections, multi-drug resistant bacteria and Biological Warfare Agents. In order to provide accurate front-line treatment that will curtail the overuse of antibiotics, a rapid and robust molecula
