  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. PARSERS: Privacy-preserving Analytics for Recognizing the Signs of an Elevated Risk for Suicide

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF19CT007

    Risk of suicide continues to threaten both individual wellness and overall Air Force personnel readiness. The active-duty suicide rate increased 13% in 2018, while the suicide rate for veterans was 31 per 100,000 – 1.5 times greater than among nonveteran groups. Predictive analytics approaches using sensitive Electronic Health Records (EHRs) or social media data have shown promising accurac ...

  3. Passive Cathode Coatings and Devices for Spacecraft Charge Mitigation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF18AT011

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and Brookhaven National Lab (BNL) will optimize and scale-up a paintable cathode coating for the prevention of electrostatic discharge (ESD) from spacecraft operating in the low earth orbit (LEO) and geosynchronous orbit (GEO) plasma environments. The passive cathode coating requires no external power, can survive even in low altitude LEO orbits, will have negligible i ...

  4. Stable High Bandwidth AO Control with physical DM constraints

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT008

    Adaptive optics (AO) can compensate for the aberrating effects of atmospheric turbulence which degrade the performance of high energy laser (HEL) weapon systems and, as such, is an enabling technology for effective deployment of HEL weapon systems. A key component in an HEL AO system is the deformable mirror (DM). However, mechanical constraints in currently available DMs limits AO system performa ...

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: DHA19B001

    Thestate of warfighters (whether theyarefatigued, distracted,and/or stressed)and of theteam (whether theyare workingtogethereffectivelyand cohesively)greatly impact thelikelihood ofmission success. The brain isan excellent source of data with which to assess individualand team states. Unfortunately,current technologiescannot supportcontinuous neural statemonitoring of warfightersacross themany dif ...

  6. Occlusion Effect-Reducing Ear Plug, With Pass-Through Communication

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: DHA19C001

    Triton Systems proposes to develop easy-to-use in-ear hearing protection which will reduce the occlusion effect, provide pass-through communication and nonlinear filtering of loud sounds.

  7. Point of care blood coagulopathy diagnostics

    SBC: Coalesenz Inc.            Topic: DHA19A001

    We have developed a novel low-cost, multi-functional blood coagulation sensor that can measure a patient’s coagulation status within less than 10 minutes using a 25mL drop of blood. This device addresses the critical unmet need to identify and manage patients with an elevated risk of life-threatening bleeding or thrombosis, the major causes of in-hospital preventable death. In addition, our inno ...

  8. High Energy Resolution Mixed-Halide Elpasolite Scintillators for Next Generation RIID

    SBC: CapeSym, Inc            Topic: DTRA18B003

    The ability to discriminate between threatening and benign sources depends on the sensitivity, accuracy, and identification speed of the detection equipment. High energy resolution of the radionuclide sensor is necessary to decrease the likelihood of false identification. However, few scintillators achieve better than 3% energy resolution at 662 keV, and none exceed 2.5%. The goal of this effort i ...

  9. Mixed Elpasolite Scintillators

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA18B003

    The goal of this program is to develop the mixed elpasolite scintillators in order to achieve an energy resolution of  (≤ 2.5% (approaching 2%) at 662 keV for crystal sizes of up to 2 inch by 2 inch.  In this project we will investigate compositional changes in selected mixed-elpasolite(s) in order to achieve very high energy resolution.  By incorporating 6Li, neutron detection will also be t ...

  10. Fully Adaptive Radar Resource Allocation-- 19-061

    SBC: METRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF19BT003

    The goal of the proposed effort is to develop a fully adaptive radar resource allocation framework for concurrent detection and tracking of targets. While the methods we will develop are general, we will specialize our analysis to ground targets by including clutter and using kinematic models relevant to ground targets. In Phase I, we will develop both task-driven and information-driven metrics in ...
