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. Alternative Signature Detectors for Long Range Nuclear Material Identification

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162003

    Increasing the distance for standoff detection of nuclear materials, beyond that capable with direct radiation detection, using alternative signatures, such as the concentration of ionization in the surrounding atmosphere, improves the ability to locate, track and monitor this material.Ionizing radiation generates free elections, ions, and exited states in the nearby atmosphere, even when the sour ...

  2. Thermal and Fast Neutron Multiplicity Counter

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162007

    Neutron multiplicity can provide effective detection and identification of shielded Special Nuclear Materials based on analysis of the time correlated neutron multiplicity distribution. RMD is developing two key materials for such applications: Cs2LiYCl6:Ce (CLYC) scintillator and dual-mode plastics.CLYC offers efficient thermal neutron detection and excellent separation between gamma and neutron ...

  3. Prediction of Emergent SCIENce and Technology (PRESCIENT)

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: DTRA162005

    We propose to develop Prediction of Emergent SCIENce & Technology (PRESCIENT), a system that mines a text corpus of scientific patents and publications to discover emerging technologies that may impact WMD or CWMD. PRESCIENT will take as input patents and

  4. Integrated Multi-mode Handheld RIID

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA152007

    The goal of the project is to develop a handheld instrument that detects, identifies, and categorizes radioactive sources based on gamma, thermal-, and fast-neutron signatures. Existing radioisotope identification devices (RIIDs) are typically biased toward gamma spectroscopy; some instruments may use an additional inefficient neutron counter in form of a He-3 tube. The recent development of mat ...

  5. Cyberchase Fractions Quest

    SBC: FABLE VISION, INC.            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    The final product is Cyberchase Fractions Quest—a math game based on the storyline of PBS children's television series, Cyberchase. In the game, students in grades 3 and 4 will apply learning fractions within three contexts: areas and regions (such as shapes), sets (groups of objects), and on a number line. The game will identify specific areas where students struggle and will introduce challeng ...

  6. MEMS Chip for Chemical Vapor Sampling and Analysis

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: DTRA143003

    Agiltron will develop a new class of chemical vapor analyzers by leveraging Agiltrons development and production of micro-electrical-mechanical systems (MEMS) products and expertise with surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) analysis and film fabrication. Our approach capitalizes on integration of these separate technologies for the first time to generate a unique and novel functionality that f ...

  7. Encapsulated HI3O8 Microparticles Phase II

    SBC: AKITA INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: DTRA143002

    This Phase 2 project will further develop and scale a manufacturing process for the production of 5-25 kilogram quantities of encapsulated HI3O8 with a particle size of approximately 2 m and other sizes as desired by the sponsor. This project addresses the need to develop manufacturing processes and build a production capability for the manufacture of HI3O8 a halogen-containing chemical reagent f ...

  8. Standoff Detector using Large-Volume Advanced Scintillation Materials

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA152008

    From 1993 to 2013, sixteen incidents involving highly enriched uranium associated with illegal activity has been reported to the IAEA.A gun-type of weapon would require roughly 25 kg of highly enriched uranium (HEU), which is easily deployed.Part of the defense is layered detection using standoff detection.Though detection of HEU is difficult, RMD has developed a number of large-volume scintillati ...

  9. Enhanced Beta-Batteries: A Long Life Power Source for Sensors Monitoring WMD

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA102004

    While many applications may have access to harvestable energy in the form of solar radiation (or other ambient light), wind, environmental vibration, or wave motion, not all do. In this proposal, RMD targets the most challenging applications, sensors that must operate for many months or years and which have undependable or no access to environmental energy. These sensors need a self contained, com ...

  10. 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 ...
