  1. Chemical and Biological Agent Deny: Selective Phosphate Ester Hydrolysis

    SBC: Icagen, Inc.            Topic: DTRA06012

    This proposed work will generate a targeted phosphate ester hydrolysis catalyst for agent denial. This catalyst will be targeted by conjugation to single stranded DNA. Characteristics of the catalyst will be determined, including ruggedness, targeting selectivity, and potential methods for deployment.

  2. Novel Methods of IED Suppression and Neutralization to Include Next Generation WMD Dispersal Devices

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: DTRA06007

    There is an urgent need to procure for our military forces on the ground in Iraq and in other locations technology and equipment which provide the capability to effectively and immediately detect, assess, and defend against the threat from Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). It is believed that this same threat, applied to Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) dispersal, could also increasingly beco ...

  3. New Thermobaric Materials and Weapon Concepts

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: DTRA06010

    Improvements in configuration of potential thermobaric warheads are presented. Such improvements in configuration will allow faster mixing rates, resulting in a reduction in total reaction time. Higher reaction rates, and lower reaction times lead to more complete reaction of thermobaric fuels, which will cause thermobaric weapons to better engage enclosed targets and cause more extensive damage ...

  4. Novel Methods of IED Suppression and Neutralization to Include Next Generation WMD Dispersal Devices

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: DTRA06007

    The use of the Improvised Explosive Device (IED) has become a favorite weapon of choice against the U.S. and Iraqi military and civilian population during the current conflict in Iraq. The potential use of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) as IEDs to increase the area of effect and intensity of the attacks is growing as is the possibility of spreading IED use around the globe. The wide spread av ...

  5. Enhanced Stability and Penetration Depth of Deep Earth Penetrators

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: DTRA06009

    Three concepts will be evaluated in order to achieve flow separation and penetration enhancement of Earth Penetrating Weapons (EPW). One concept addresses the merit of carrying fluid within the EPW. The other two describe new techniques addressing the generation of gases from the structure of the penetrator accompanied by energy release in the interface. Experimental as well as analytical effort ...

  6. Low-Cost Microcalorimeter Spectrometer for X-Ray Macroanalysis

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    A low-cost superconducting transition edge sensor (TES) microcalorimeter spectrometer is described for high energy and high spatial resolution X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy and microanalysis. The proposed microcalorimeter instrument offers an energy resolution that is comparable to and potentially even better than wavelength dispersive spectrometers, thereby enabling the resolution of inter ...

  7. Advanced Computational Techniques for Counterproliferation Problem

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: DTRA03010

    The task of computationally simulating the dispersion and/or neutralization of toxic chemical/biological (CB) agents, released from weapons of mass destruction (WMD), puts a very high demand on the capability of current generation computational dynamics (CFD) codes. Current advanced computational tools for WMD threat simulation fail to address the necessary physics, do not incorporate emerging com ...

  8. Moisture Effects on Hazardous Material Concentrations

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: DTRA04007

    This program will provide an improved understanding of the effects of atmospheric moisture on hazardous material and define methods to better model these effects in the DTRA HPAC model. The work will evaluate the interaction of moisture and hazardous material in the HPAC model based on two levels of coupling the transport equations for hazardous material and moisture. These evaluations will be com ...

  9. Agent Defeat Weapon Technology

    SBC: POSITRONICS RESEARCH LLC            Topic: DTRA04012

    Penetrating radiation holds the greatest promise as a non-intrusive means of destroying biological and chemical agents inside sealed containers, if the appropriate form is used. There are two recognized means including exposure to neutrons or application of pulses of gamma rays. Because of the pervasiveness of neutrons and the extremely large threat of collateral damage to humans, neutrons are onl ...

  10. New Thermobarics

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: DTRA04011

    Improvements and refinements in formulation and configuration of current thermobarics are presented. Improvements in formulation allow for faster reaction rates and more complete reaction, releasing a greater percentage of available energy at early times and close to the HE detonation step. Furthermore, improvements in configuration will allow faster mixing rates, resulting in a reduction in total ...
