  1. 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 ...

  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. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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-cm2 of active area will be included in a portable radiation detection system. The system is expected to outperform the standards set by the ANSI N42.53 standards, and gamma-ray rejection ratio (GRR) of 1.0x10-8 or better. A gamma-ray spectrometer for isotope ...

  7. Fully Metallic Self-Fragmenting Structural Reactive Materials Using Composites and Alloys Comprised of Aluminum, Lithium, and Magnesium

    SBC: Adranos Energetics LLC            Topic: DTRA16A002

    While aluminum casing materials provide some enhanced performance and thermal loading to explosive ordinance, their overall effectiveness is highly limited by incomplete combustion and long residence times. In order to reduce these problems, the casing material must be designed to facilitate rapid fragmentation through either specialized casing geometries or greatly refined initial particle sizes. ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Large area, high efficiency, extremely light-weight portable neutron Detector

    SBC: 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 ...
