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. Polyoxometalate/Graphene Gas Sensor Coupled with Infrared Motion Detector for Human Proximity Sensor Array

    SBC: International Scientific Technologies Inc            Topic: DTRA143001

    In Topic DTRA143-001, a need has been identified to improve monitoring human presence near containers, stored items, and secured areas in order to monitor activities, particularly in remote locations that are not patrolled all day every day. The use of smart materials to detect human presence by sensing volatile organic compounds emanating from the human body is a major area of interest within th ...

  2. Semantic Parsing and role Labeling In Combination Effort (SPLICE)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA14B003

    To Counter Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD), DTRA must analyze data from numerous sources about a diverse set of technologies and activities. The extreme diversity in content and the volume of DTRAs data combine to produce one of the most challenging analysis problems in the government. The CWMD mission therefore requires deep analysis - an in-depth understanding of all available data and correl ...

  3. Reactive Structural Materials for Enhanced Blasts

    SBC: ASPEN MEDISYS, LLC            Topic: DTRA122008

    MATSYS proposes to develop reactive materials compositions and processing techniques for structural reactive composites for blast enhancement. This effort will combine our unique expertise in instrumented-Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) with new approaches in reactive materials design to develop a new generation of cost-efficient and highly reactive materials. The proposed material system will use a ...

  4. SNAPSHOT: A System for Predicting Human Physical Traits from Sample DNA

    SBC: PARABON NANOLABS, INC.            Topic: DTRA102007

    This SBIR Phase II project will produce a working prototype of a DNA processing system that will provide the U.S. Department of Defense with a revolutionary new forensics capability, namely, the ability to predict from a human DNA sample the physical traits of its source. The system, code-named SNAPSHOT, uses commercially available DNA processing equipment and can be deployed within any DNA proce ...

  5. Heterodyne Interferometer for Triggering Gas Puff PRSs

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: DTRA03005

    Large x-ray generators using Ar gas filled loads are an important element in the DTRA simulator program to provide users with a relevant fluence of x-rays for evaluating the radiation hardness of components used in military systems. With ostensibly identical initial conditions and generator parameters, 33% variations in the average yield have been observed. The one unmeasured parameter is the actu ...

  6. Novel Reactive Structural Materials

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: DTRA05002

    Materials and Manufacturing Systems, Inc. (MATSYS) proposes to develop novel reactive structural materials for the enhancement of munitions lethality. This effort will combine our unique expertise in instrumented-Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) with new approaches in intermetallic design to develop a new generation of cost-efficient, high strength and reactive composites. The proposed material syst ...

  7. Development of Time Resolved Technique to Infer 1-Dimensional Magnetic Field Distribution from Zeeman Broadened Lines

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    "The magnetic field distribution in a current carrying plasma, such as Z-pinch, can be used to infer the currents flowing in the pinch and to study physical process such as the Rayleigh-Taylor (R-T) instability during the implosion phase. The currentcommutation process is particularly difficult to measure in nested array loads and in concentric magnetic flux compression experiments. Faraday rotati ...

  9. DEVELOPMENT OF UNIFORM GAS DISCHARGE PLASMA SOURCES FOR PLASMA OPENING SWITCH APPLICATIONS

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    PLASMA OPENING SWITCHES (POS) ARE WIDELY USED FOR CURRENT COMPRESSION AND OWER AMPLIFICATION IN INDUCTIVE ENERGY STORE PULSE POWER SYSTEMS. FLASHBOARD PLASMA SOURCES ARE WIDELY USED AS PLASMA INJECTORS IN THESE POS'S. THE FLASHBOARD PLASMA IS PRODUCED BY SURFACE BREAKDOWN ON AN INSULATOR IN VACUUM. SINCE THE SURFACE CONDITIONS DEPEND ON THE PREVIOUS HISTORY, THE RESULTING PLASMA IS NOT UNIFORM, RE ...

  10. STUDY OF ION MASS EFFECTS ON LONG CONDUCTION TIME PLASMA OPENING SWITCHES USING RESONANT DIAGNOSTIC TECHNIQUES

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    PLASMA EROSION OPENING SWITCHES (PEOS) ARE FINDING MANY APPLICATIONS IN PULSE POWER MULTIPLICATION AND THE SWITCHING OF INDUCTIVE STORAGE DEVICES FOR PULSED POWER APPLICATIONS. SUCH A SWITCH OPERATES BY USING AN EXTERNAL PLASMA SOURCE TO SHORT A GAP WHICH CONDUCTS CURRENT FROM A LOW VOLTAGE CAPACITIVE SOURCE FOR 100 NANOSECOND TIME SCALES. AT A CRITICAL CURRENT DENSITY THE PLASMA ERODES AND THE SW ...
