  1. Cyclone Collection system for Radionuclide Detection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA182006

    The detection of radionuclide aerosols is a critical indicator of a nuclear detonation. Existing sensors as part of the International Monitoring System operate in a batch process and typically have a 48 to 72 hour delay between aerosol sample collection and measurement activities due to limits of instrument sensitivity. The continuous, instantaneous measurements of atmospheric aerosol radiation le ...

  5. Rapid identification of Tobacco rattle virus in potato and ornamental hosts using isothermal amplification and a hand-held fluorometric device

    SBC: Agdia, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Tobacco rattle virus (TRV) infects hundreds of diverse plant species causing reduced quality and yield, particularly in potato and ornamental crops. Current detection methods are limited to commercial protein-based assays that do not target all infective isolates or published nucleic acid based assays that require significant training and equipment resources. Agdia Incorporated has commercialized ...

  9. Low-Cost Sensing Array for Infrasound

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA172001

    Infrasound and seismic measurements are used by DTRA and the DoD for nuclear test monitoring, terrorist blast forensics, battle damage assessment, and environmental monitoring. However, these long wavelength physical signals are typically recorded through single-point sensors or sparse low density arrays. As a result, the critical signals of interest are often corrupted or masked by noise or inter ...
