  2. 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 crucial to detect proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions from radioactive isotopes, and (b) cost-effectiveness for deployment of sensor networks across large storage facil ...

  4. System of Systems Control Interactions

    SBC: GTD Unlimited LLC            Topic: MDA15T002

    In this research effort, the GTD team will design tools for efficiently specifying, representing, and analyzing the interactions between control systems in System of Systems (SoS). Three approaches will be considered and integrated. The first two are based in the rigorous application of H_8 control theory to the SoS design problem. The third will use complexity measures to generate a metric that c ...

  6. Advanced Hit Detection Systems

    SBC: FREENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA13015

    FreEnt Technologies, Inc. (FreEnt) and Johns Hopkins Universitys Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) are proposing a multiple-hit detection sensor called the Optical Lethality Measurement System (OLMS). This system is based on the Planar Optical Penetration Sensor (POPS) technology (originally developed and patented by APL) and prior art associated with the Blast Initiation Detector (BID). The BID is ...
