  1. High Performance Portable Neutron Detector

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 1012

    A Neutron detection device is an indispensable tool for power, medical, and defense applications. Proliferation of weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat in today's world. Low cost, low power, high performance, rugged and portable neutron detection devices are highly desirable for these applications. Agiltron proposes an unprecedented fabrication and integration ap ...

  2. Semiconductor Neutron Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 1012

    In the proposed program we plan to investigate novel semiconductor neutron detectors based on the wide bandgap, lithium containing compositions LiMgP LiMgAs and LiZnP. The goal of the program is to produce detector quality crystals and to demonstrate efficient thermal neutron detection, with the possibility of providing neutron gamma discrimination. We will examine the synthesis and purification o ...

  4. New Scintillator for Neutron Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 1012

    Neutron detection is one of the methods used in revealing illicit nuclear materials. Currently, there is an ongoing search for new and better neutron detectors prompted by anticipated shortages of He-3 that is used in many of the current detection systems. This effort proposes and investigation and development of a new thermal neutron and gamma scintillator. The scintillator belongs to already pro ...

  5. Low Cost, Large Volume 3He Replacement Neutron Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 1012

    Nuclear instrumentation for the detection of thermal neutrons relies heavily upon 3He because of its desirable nuclear properties and physical characteristics. The decline in production combined with increased demand has depleted the 3He stockpile and the supply of 3He is presently insufficient for US needs. The proposed effort seeks to address this problem by developing detector technology to hel ...

  6. PULSE Portable Usability Lab for System Evaluation

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: HSB0102005

    Usability greatly affects the acceptability, affordability, and overall success of technology. However, the resources that are typically required to ensure usability are substantial, and failing to do so will degrade a system`s ability to support the user`s mission, decrease the perceived value of the technology, and reduce the number of future transition opportunities. Aptima`s Portable Usability ...

  7. Multi-Function Wand Prototype Development

    SBC: Spectral Labs Incorporated            Topic: HSB0102008

    This SLI proposal for development of a Multisensor Wand, which we designated the Multi-Function Wand (MFW), describes a carefully planned program to reach the overarching objective of providing a sound design concept that will address the vital need for a Handheld Multisensor tool to improve the checkpoint screener`s ability to quickly make a judgment call on whether someone is concealing illicit ...

  8. Precision Information Environment for Collaborative Emergency Support (PIECES)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0101003

    Decision makers responding to homeland security incidents must rapidly integrate and manage dynamic, time-sensitive information from a large number of heterogeneous and multimodal information sources accessed through a variety of software applications, all while collaborating in real-time as efficiently as possible. To address these issues, we propose to design and evaluate a Precision Information ...

  9. Electrospray Based High Vacuum Diffusion Pump for Mass Spectrometers

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: HSB0102002

    Mass spectrometers necessitate a partial pressure zone to allow for the process of mass characterization of the analyte under consideration. The reasons for transforming neutral molecules into charged ions include (1) the ability to control the trajectories and destinations of charged species by appropriate combinations of electric and magnetic fields and (2) detectability that is generally much g ...

  10. Electrospray Stand-off Detection of Trace Species in Air of Currency

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: HSB0102001

    To detect and identify vapors of contraband currency, not to mention a selection mode for explosives, narcotics, chemical warfare agents, biological threats or other analyte species at trace levels in air, is an important problem with many ramifications. One widely used approach is based on transforming the molecules of those species into gas phase ions, which are then characterized by measurement ...
