The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. "Typical day" Meteorological Data for Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion (ATD) Modeling

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: DTRA06004

    The complexity of Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion (ATD) modeling requires physically consistent weather data evolving in both space and time. Spatially and/or temporally averaged data found in climatological products is not suitable for ATD modeling. The proposed solution for providing "typical day" meteorological data couples innovative search techniques applied to long-range historical arch ...

  2. A Chemical Sniffer to Detect Nuclear Weapons

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a vapor phase detector of the chemicals/explosives associated with nuclear weaponry. Radioactivity detection allows accurate weapons verification, but provides too much information on the weaponry design. An alternative is to detect otherchemicals associated with nuclear weaponry. EIC Laboratories has successfully developed vapor phase Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) ...

  3. A fast pulse, intermediate flux, bench-top, high rep-rate x-ray source for PRS diagnostic calibration

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: DTRA06013

    Presently, commercial and government radiation test facilities do not have convenient, reliable calibration systems for routine, day-in, day-out checks on x-ray and neutron detectors or their filter arrays. Lack of such calibration systems compromises the quality of the testing, and leads to wasted time and manpower resources used to resolve the ensuing uncertainties. We are developing a compact, ...

  4. A HIGH RANGE PARTICLE VELOCITY TRANSDUCER DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS AN ESTABLISHED NEED FOR A SIMPLE ROBUST TRANSDUCER TO MEASURE PARTICLE VELOCITY IN SEVERE BLAST AND SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS SUCH AS NUCLEAR AND HIGH EXPLOSIVE TESTS. A GAGE CONCEPT IS PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPMENT, BASED ON THE PROVEN MEASUREMENT PRINCIPLES USED IN THE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL DX GAGE, BUT RECONFIGURED MECHANICALLY AND ELECTRICALLY TO WITHSTAND THE HARSH SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS. THE CONCEPT RE ...

  5. A Novel Cost Effective Method for Growing High Performance Radiation Sensors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082007

    Certain lanthanide halides have significantly higher light output than NaI:Tl, the comparison standard for scintillators, plus other important properties, including fast decay times and excellent proportionality. Unfortunately, lanthanide halides grown by traditional melt processes have high production costs and limited availability. Crystals are usually limited to about 5 cm x 5 cm, right cylinde ...

  6. A NOVEL FIELD PROGRAMMABLE GATE ARRAY FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Mission Research Corporation proposes the development of a unique FPGA (field programmable gate array) for applications in space and other military and civilian environments requiring the versatility of reconfigurability with retention of the configuration in an unpowered state. The FPGA will be capable of being configured once and retaining that configuration for a minimum of 10 years even with ...

  7. A Portable Gamma Spectrometer with a High Resolution CdTe Array Detector

    SBC: Radiation Safety Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a battery powered portable monitoring system capable of collecting and analyzing gamma spectra for specific radionuclides in the field. The system will consist of a high resolution cadmium telluride array detector and a small multichannel analyzer and data logger. The proposed monitoring system builds upon the design of the Ludlum Model 2350 Data Logger which is quite rugge ...

  8. A TECHNICAL HYPERTEXT SYSTEM

    SBC: Horizons Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HORIZONS TECHNOLOGY, INC., (HTI) PROPOSES TO EXAMINE THE BENEFITS OF APPLYING HYPERTEXT, EXPERT SYSTEM, AND MICROCOMPUTER TECHNOLOGIES TO INCREASE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING AND COMPUTATIONAL AIDS (CAP) AND BY INCREASING THE USABILITY OF REFERENCE DOCUMENTATION DESCRIBING COMPLEX NUCLEAR WEAPON EFFECTS PHENOMENOLOGY. A HYPERTEXT DOCUMENT ALLOWS THE USER TO EASILY ACCESS DIFFERENT TY ...

  9. A TIME-RESOLVED HARD X-RAY SPECTROMETER

    SBC: BERKELEY RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    FOR TESTING OF ELECTRONICS IT IS IMPORTANT HOW THE X-RAY ENERGY SPECTRUM FROM A BREMSSTRAHLUNG FLASH X-RAY SIMULATOR CHANGES WITH TIME. HOWEVER, ONLY THE TIME-INTEGRATED SPECTRUM CAN BE MEASURED CONVENIENTLY, USING DIFFERENTIALLY FILTERED TLD'S. THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A TIME-DEPENDENT VERSION OF A DIFFERENTIALLY FILTERED SPECTROMETER, BY REPLACING THE TLD'S WITH PHOTOCONDUCTIVE ELEMENTS SUCH ...

  10. A Very Deep Submicron Cell Library and Design System for Radiation Hardened ASICs

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "The proposed project will design, demonstrate, and market a very deep submicron cell library and design system for radiation hardened ASICs and standard products. Specifically, we will develop a scaleable 0.18 ¿m, hardened by design (HBD) cell library tosupport the radiation hardening of ASICs fabricated in commercial silicon foundries, but exhibiting total dose hardness in excess of 300 Krad(S ...
