  1. Portable System with Li Foil MWPC Neutron Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA14B005

    At the completion of the research and development effort a Li foil multi-wire proportional counter (MWPC) neutron detector with more than 625 cm^2 of active area will be included in a portable radiation detection system. The system is expected to have an intrinsic thermal neutron detection efficiency of 55% or greater and gamma-ray rejection ratio (GRR) of 1.0x10^-8 or better. A gamma-ray spectrom ...

  2. Production of Inactivated Virus Vaccines Using Supralethal Irradiation

    SBC: BIOLOGICAL MIMETICS, INC.            Topic: DTRA14B002

    We seek a proof-of-concept study for the development of a new platform technology for the rapid and complete inactivation of pathogen infectivity for vaccine development of medically important micro-organisms (e.g. viruses, bacteria and parasites). A recently discovered reconstituted Mn+2-decapeptide phosphate complex (Mn-Dp-Pi) of the radiation-resistant bacterium Deinococcus radiodurans was foun ...

  3. 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 critical to detect the proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges facing this objective include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions (e.g., gamma rays) from common radioactive isotopes behind shielding, and (b) cost-effe ...

  4. DOEYK: Detecting Objects with Enhanced YOLOv3 and Knowledge Graph

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: DTRA19B002

    Current state-of-the-art object detection algorithms are almost exclusively based on Deep Convolutional Neural Network (DCNN). These algorithms all require a large amount of labeled examples for each of the object categories they can recognize. These algorithms will fail for novel objects that only very few or even no prior examples are available. These algorithms are also far less accurate when c ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Discrete 3-D Electronics for Mobile Radiation Detection Systems

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA18B002

    Phase II will utilize knowledge gained from phase I work to develop and execute a manufacturing process suitable for producing quantities of 3-D printed discrete circuits for radiation detection systems.  The goal is to support mobile radiation detection system requirements for high voltage, analog amplification, and MCA functionality to produce differential pulse height spectra in time sequence. ...
