  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 offer some of these character ...

  2. Novel Screen Approach to Inactivate Whole Viral Vaccines by Supralethal Irradiation

    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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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. ...

  6. Compact Laser Drivers for Photoconductive Semiconductor Switches

    SBC: ASR Corporation            Topic: DTRA16A004

    A compact laser driver will allow photoconductive semiconductor switches to be used in small EMP simulator "building blocks" (EMPBB). Combined with a battery powered on-board pulsed power system, these EMPBBs will allow the construction of flexible EMP test facilities with nothing more than a single fiber optic timing connection to each EMPBB.

  7. Modular Pulse Charger and Laser Triggering System for Large-Scale EMP and HPM Applications

    SBC: Scientific Applications & Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: DTRA16A004

    For effective protection against EMP and HPM threats, it is important to understand the physics of the threats, and also to quantify the effects they have on electrical systems. EMP and HPM vulnerability testing requires delivery of high peak power and electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments is to develop a modular, optically-isolated MV-antenn ...

  8. Hardened, Optically-Based Temperature Characterization of Detonation Environments

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: DTRA19B001

    Improving the effectiveness of counter-WMD operations requires improved understanding of weapon-target interaction. Specifically, time-resolved measurements of temperature and composition are required to allow temporal evolution of a detonation fireball. To address this need, SA Photonics will develop MONITOR, a laser-based temperature diagnostic that will enable wide dynamic range temperature mea ...

  9. Semantic Models for the Identification of Laboratory Equipment (SMILE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: DTRA19B002

    Military operators must identify and catalogue the equipment they find when inspecting laboratory facilities. This information is used to determine the lab’s capabilities, including the lab’s potential for building weapons of mass destruction. Currently, operators use computer vision algorithms to help them classify equipment in pictures of laboratory environments. Unfortunately, current image ...
