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. 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 ...

  2. Advanced Solutions for Radiation Susceptibility Analysis & Prediction

    SBC: DFR SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: DTRA162006

    The increasing complexity of devices, reduced budgets and accelerated program timelines, requires a new approach to predicting radiation of integrated circuit (IC) designs.Most approaches to date require gate level analysis and do not scale easily to device level calculations, leading to methods that are note practical under most program timeline and cost budgets.Previously, DfR Solutions has demo ...

  3. Autonomous navigation through small, confined spaces

    SBC: ROBOTIC RESEARCH LLC            Topic: DTRA182002

    As more of our enemies expand the number and complexity of their underground facilities, the need to improve the tools that provide consistent situational awareness (SA) increases accordingly.For complex missions such as these, we require a family of systems (FoS) that have different capabilities, and can address various mission needs. Robotic Research proposes creating a unique, small platform (P ...

  4. A Deep Learning Approach for Enhanced Discrimination of Nuclear Weapons Testing

    SBC: Array Information Technology, Inc            Topic: DTRA182005

    Seismic, hydro acoustic, and infrasonic (SHI) analyses possess many desirable properties, such as long-distance wave propagation and attributable spectral characteristics. They have been, by large, relegated to capturing massive explosions, earthquakes, bolides, and space-bound rocket launches. Although machine learning techniques have been employed on various military and commercial projects, rar ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Automated Approaches to Analyze and Identify Dual Use Research of Concern from Scientific Publications

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172004

    The dual use potential of certain life sciences research has been recognized as an important biosecurity issue for a number of years. Current Dual Use Research of Concern (DURC) assessment procedures are pure manual work done by researchers/reviewers trained in the biosecurity domain. Therefore, an automated approach to analyze and identify DURC rapidly and reliably is urgently needed. To address ...

  8. Production of Inactivated Vaccines Using Supralethal Irradiation

    SBC: BIOLOGICAL MIMETICS, INC.            Topic: DTRA14B002

    The discovery and commercial development of licensed vaccines often take many years of research followed by years of pre-clinical and clinical development. We propose to assess the feasibility of using a novel irradiation-inactivation technology to develop vaccines more rapidly. The technology utilizes a manganese-peptide complex to protect antigenic proteins from ionizing radiation while allowing ...

  9. Fast Vacuum Isolation Valve for Debris Mitigation

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA143007

    Nuclear weapons effects (NWE) testing and other experiments conducted with plasma radiation sources require that test articles be exposed to radiation but protected from fast moving debris generated by a high power source event. Solid barriers or membranes are unacceptable because they attenuate the desired radiation, and physical shutters of reasonable size and complexity have difficulty reaching ...

  10. Development Of Novel Hg2I2 Detector For High Speed, High Spatial Resolution Direct Detection X-Ray Imaging

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA152002

    We propose the development of a very new sensor material for direct detection of x-ray, the mercurous iodide Hg2I2 (as opposed to mercuric iodide, HgI2), which can address most if not all of the limitations associated with currently available x-ray sensors, both semiconductors and scintillators. Despite years of research, no explored candidate can well satisfy both the demands on spatial resolutio ...
