  2. A COMPACT ACCELERATOR-BASED NEUTRON SOURCE FOR BAGGAGE INTERROGATION

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

    THE USE OF THERMAL NEUTRONS AS A TOOL FOR BAGGAGE INSPECTIONIS AN ESTABLISHED TECHNIQUE, WITH A PROTOTYPE SYSTEM CURRENTLY BEING TESTED FOR AIRPORT FEASIBILITY AS AN EXPLOSIVE DETECTION DEVICE. THIS SYSTEM COULD POSSIBLY BE MODIFIED FOR INDIVIDUAL BAGGAGE IDENTIFICATION THROUGH THE USE OF IMAGING OR ACTIVATION DETECTION OF SUITABLE TAGS. HOWEVER, FEASIBILITY TESTING OF THIS CONCEPT AND THE COMMERC ...

  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 LOW-COST OPTICAL WEATHER IDENTIFIER FOR AN AUTOMATED WEATHER OBSERVING SYSTEM

    SBC: DYNAMICS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE IDENTIFICATION OF THE TYPE OF PRECIPITATION (RAIN, SNOW, FOG/HAZE, HAIL) HAS TRACTIONALLY RELIED ON HUMAN JUDGMENT. RECENTLY, THE WAVE PROPAGATION LABORATORY OF DEVELOPED A TECHNOLOGY FOR AUTOMATIC WEATHER IDENTIFICATION USING LASER SCINTILLATION AND SCATTERING. THE TECHNIQUE HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY TESTED IN FIELD OPERATION. HOWEVER, THE SYSTEM IS TOO CLUMSY AND EXPENSIVE FOR LARGE-SCALE FIELD ...

  5. A MEMBRANE CONCENTRATOR FOR EXPLOSIVES DETECTION

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A VAPOR DETECTION SYSTEM ABLE TO ANALYZE ORGANIC VAPORS AT VERY LOW CONCENTRATIONS WOULD MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO SCREEN AIR TRAVEL PASSENGERS AND THEIR BAGGAGE FOR EXPLOSIVES. THE LEVEL OF SENSITIVITY REQUIRED FOR THE DETECTOR IS BETWEEN 1 AND 100 X 10-15 G OF THE MATERIAL OF CONCERN. CURRENT DETECTORS WITH THIS SENSITIVITY ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR USE AT AIRPORT GATES. THE GOAL OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. ADVANCED FARE PAYMENT MEDIA

    SBC: Echelon Industries Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY OF SMART CARDS FOR THE PUBLIC TRANSIT INDUSTRY HAS NOT BEEN ESTABLISHED. THERE IS A PERCEPTION THAT SMART CARDS CAN BE USED TO REDUCE THE TOTAL TRANSACTIONCOSTS ASSOCIATED WITH FARE PAYMENT, TO IMPROVE SECURITY, REDUCE FRAUD AND IMPROVE SYSTEM PERFORMANCE AND RIDERSHIP. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DETERMINE THE APPROPRIATENESS OF THESE CLAIMS; THIS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY R ...

    SBIR Phase II 1993 Department of Transportation
  10. Advanced Materials and Construction for Preformed Traffic Loops

    SBC: ORINCON            Topic: N/A

    With their proven performance, reliability, and low cost, inductive loop sensors are widely employed in traffic monitoring and control. However, the presently used preformed loops suffer from frequent breakage induced by traffic or repaving operations - a need exists to develop a preformed inductive loop that can survive these stresses. Additionally, the performed loop should be immune to changi ...
