  1. Improved Identification of the function of Novel and Partially Occluded Laboratory Equipment

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: DTRA19B002

    This STTR Phase II project proposes development of a statistical relational learning framework for identification of the function of laboratory equipment from imagery. The proposed framework uses semantic reasoning to incorporate evidence from multiple classifiers and feature extractors, domain knowledge, and scene context for scene understanding and labeling. The Phase II effort will focus on dev ...

  2. Spray-based visual indicator of opioids for the rapid and effective decontamination of large areas

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD20AT001

    Triton Systems, Inc. will collaborate with The University of Massachusetts Lowell to develop a spray-based technology for the rapid, visual identification of opioids, turning contaminated areas from nondescript white powders to a brightly colored spots for easy recognition with the naked eye. The technology leverages molecular recognition units that bind strongly and specifically to a variety of o ...

  3. 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 may offer some of these chara ...

  4. Fast and Radiation Hard Scintillators for High Dose Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA20B001

    The event of nuclear explosion generates harsh radiation conditions, evaluation of which is critical in order to protect the military and civilian personnel from serious harm. Due to these harsh conditions only very simple methods of radiation assessment are employed, such as measurement of equivalent dose. Improvements to current instrumentation are sought that would provide energy resolved dose ...

  5. Rugged Ultrafast Radiation Hard Scintillators for Nuclear Battlefield

    SBC: CapeSym, Inc            Topic: DTRA20B001

    Scintillator radiation detectors offer high sensitivity and relatively accurate radionuclide detection at a reasonable price. However, most of the available commercial scintillators have long decay times ranging from hundreds of nanoseconds to tens of microseconds. As a result, they have limited performance in high dose rate environments such as nuclear battlefields, robotic nuclear weapons test s ...

  6. Opioid Indicator Spray for Complex Surfaces

    SBC: Clear Scientific, LLC            Topic: CBD20AT001

    Opioids, especially synthetic opioids, are a constant threat to the safety of civilian first responders; there are now serious concerns about their use in modern chemical warfare. Fentanyl and its many analogues (carfentanil, remifentanil, lofentanil, mefentanil, sufentanil, etc.) are extremely hazardous—if ingested or inhaled, many synthetic opioids cause lethal intoxication with only a few gra ...

  7. An Open-Source Platform for Inter-Network Analytics of High-Consequence Events

    SBC: ANOMALEE INC.            Topic: DTRA14B003

    Objectives and Intellectual Merit: The infrastructure of modern civilization is a set of complex systems1 that dynamically interact across multiple layers of abstraction. Researchers from many disciplines2 are designing analytical tools for predicting the global and local behaviors of these complicated, multi-layer networks. Easily usable, available (open source) and inter-operated tools are neede ...

  8. Facile, High Throughput Aerosol Production of Oxidizer Particles

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: DTRA14B001

    The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has been supporting research of energetic materials and incendiaries as payloads for weapons to defeat targets containing chemical and biological agents. Several universities and Navy labs have been involved in this research, and have narrowed down on a few material formulations that are efficient biocides. These formulations contain a chemical ingredient ...

  9. Microscale Detector Materials for Covert, Ubiquitous Radiation Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA14B004

    The proliferation of nuclear and radiological weapons of mass destruction is a serious threat in the world today. The goal of this proposal is to develop a new, very low cost radiation detection technology that will be useful for detection and for surveillance of individuals who have been near radioactive materials. The technology can also be used for dosimetry, and will provide the technology for ...

  10. Semantic Parsing and role Labeling In Combination Effort (SPLICE)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA14B003

    With missions surrounding counterproliferation, nonproliferation and WMD reduction, the stakes for DTRA are incredibly high. Effectively conducting this work involves cooperation and coordination across a wide range of military and government organizations throughout the United States and the world. The decentralization of threats has led to an explosion in the sources and types of data needed to ...
