  1. 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 ...

  2. Hierarchical, Layout-Aware, Radiation Effects Tools Vertically Integrated into an EDA Design Flow for Rad-Hard by Design

    SBC: Reliable MicroSystems, LLC            Topic: DTRA16A003

    The goal of this workis to establish a radiation-aware capability in a commercial EDA design flow that will enable first-pass success in radiation resiliency for DoD ASIC designs in much the same way that existing EDA design suites ensure first pass functionality and performance success of complex ASICs destined for commercial applications.Such an integrated capability does not presently exist.The ...

  5. Innovative Mitigation of Radiation Effects in Advanced Technology Nodes

    SBC: Reliable MicroSystems, LLC            Topic: DTRA16A003

    Establish a radiation-aware analysis capability in a commercial EDA design flow that will enable first-pass success in radiation-hardened by design (RHBD) for DoD ASICs in much the same way that existing EDA design suites ensure first pass functionality and performance success of complex ASICs destined for commercial applications. Layout-aware, calibrated single-event radiation models that captur ...

  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 andalphavirus infections, that overlap symptomatically and often treated empirically due to a lack of reliable and ...

  7. Novel Mixed-mode TCAD-Commercial PDK Integrated Flow for Radiation Hardening By Design

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA16A003

    Cost-effective application of advanced commercial electronics technologies in DoD space systems requires early development of radiation-hardened-by-design (RHBD) techniques, and use of simulations is critical to the efficiency of this process. CFDRC has developed an integrated, mixed-mode simulation approach allowing their NanoTCAD device physics simulator to interface with commercial circuit simu ...

  8. Production of Chemical Reagents for Prompt-Agent-Defeat Weapons

    SBC: NALAS ENGINEERING SERVICES INC            Topic: DTRA14B001

    The US DoD requires robust ways of neutralizing threats posed by hostile powers and terrorist organizations that may be in possession of dangerous weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). Unfortunately, the weapons currently available to the DoD do not offer a way for the WMD to be destroyed without risking the spread of that material throughout the area. The strategy for the defeat of biological weapo ...

  9. Production of Chemical Reagents for Prompt-Agent-Defeat Weapons

    SBC: NALAS ENGINEERING SERVICES INC            Topic: DTRA14B001

    Nalas Engineering and Johns Hopkins University collaborated in a Phase I STTR program to study reactive mixtures of HI3O8 and nanocomposite fuels previously developed by the Weihs Group. These fuel/oxidizer mixtures are uniquely able to simultaneously produce heat and biocidal iodine gas, a combination designed to destroy biological weapons. The team at Nalas focused on evaluating conditions for p ...
