SBC: 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
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 ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
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 ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
