  1. 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 ...

  2. Low-Cost Sensing Array for Infrasound

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA172001

    Infrasound and seismic measurements are used by DTRA and the DoD for nuclear test monitoring, terrorist blast forensics, battle damage assessment, and environmental monitoring. However, these long wavelength physical signals are typically recorded through single-point sensors or sparse low density arrays. As a result, the critical signals of interest are often corrupted or masked by noise or inter ...

  3. In-Situ Applied Omniphobic Coatings for Water Pipeline Repair and Retrofitting

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 16NCER4B

    Many pipelines within America’s infrastructure are in dire need of repair, due to structural damage caused by corrosion, or the threat of heavy metal leaching from lead and copper pipes. However, full pipe replacement is expensive and disruptive, while existing polymer liners and sleeve inserts can only_x000D_ be applied in specific cases and have difficulty bonding to worn and contaminated surf ...

  4. Fast Vacuum Isolation Valve for Debris Mitigation

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA143007

    Nuclear weapons effects (NWE) testing and other experiments conducted with plasma radiation sources require that test articles be exposed to radiation but protected from fast moving debris generated by a high power source event. Solid barriers or membranes are unacceptable because they attenuate the desired radiation, and physical shutters of reasonable size and complexity have difficulty reaching ...

  5. UltraCell- Advanced Cellulose Insulation

    SBC: ULTRACELL INSULATION, LLC            Topic: B

    Cellulose insulation is a well-established and $400M growing market. It is recognized for superior thermal insulating performance, its safety and its environmental benefits. UltraCell’s proprietary technology addresses two major issues facing the industry today: the decline in availability of newsprint as its primary feedstock and changes in OSHA labeling requirements scheduled for 2015. UltraC ...

  6. A Portable Laser Device for Remote Filler Identification

    SBC: AAC International            Topic: DTRA122012

    The proposed SBIR research (Phase I and II) is devoted to developing a laser-based acousto-ultrasonic system for inspection of sealed containers. The system represents a promising technology for improving safety management in anti-terrorism and treaty compliance operations. The system will use a pulsed laser to excite the container and a laser Doppler vibrometer for long stand-off vibratory (ult ...

  10. Portable Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer for Nuclear Forensics

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA08004

    Analysis of nuclear material samples in the field has many advantages over laboratory analysis. Laboratory analyses can be slow, involve increased expense, lead to additional waste generation and disposal problems, and may introduce errors due to sample degradation or mishandling. In situ analysis mitigates all of these problems. The specific aim of this project is the development of a truly por ...
