Microscale Detector Materials for Covert, Ubiquitous Radiation DetectorSBC: 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 ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing RadiationSBC: 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 ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
Novel Screen Approach to Inactivate Whole Viral Vaccines by Supralethal IrradiationSBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC. Topic: DTRA14B002
Future vaccine development should focus on rapid upscale production, long-term and broad protection, and sufficient global distribution to prevent and reduce the impact of many infectious diseases and potential epidemics. Agave BioSystems proposes to develop a novel whole-microorganism vaccine inactivation strategy involving high-throughput screen of extensive radio-protectant matrices and radiati ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
Portable System with Li Foil MWPC Neutron DetectorsSBC: 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 ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
Large area, high efficiency, extremely light-weight portable neutron DetectorSBC: TRITON SYSTEMS, INC. Topic: DTRA14B005
A drop-in 3He-tube replacement technology for thermal neutron detection does not exist today. It is critical for homeland security and nuclear safeguards applications. In this program, Triton Systems proposes to develop a light-weight, large-area, high efficiency portable neutron detector for passive interrogation using an innovative gas detector structure. The resulting 3He-free thermal neutron d ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
