  1. Characterization of mesoscale weather prediction errors for dispersion modeling

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: DTRA04003

    DTRA uses high-resolution mesoscale forecasts to drive HPAC, the DTRA dispersion modeling tool that generates critical forecasts of dosage resulting from releases of chemical, biological, or radiological agents. HPAC is designed to provide probablistic information based on estimates of the uncertainty of the input forecast fields of the meteorological variables (wind, temperature, etc.). ...

  2. Low-cost Individual Digital Dosimeters using Solid State Photomultipliers

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05007

    U.S. forces working in low-level radiation environments have unsatisfactory choices for monitoring radiation exposure. The currently available A/UDR-13 pocket dosimeter is able to meet sensitivity requirements, but is cost prohibitive at ~$400 per unit, and it fails in the high temperature environments faced our military. Careful monitoring and accurate reporting of the exposed dose will reduce t ...

  3. High Resolution, Room Temperature Semiconductor Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05006

    Proliferation of the weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat in the world today. Prevention of the spread of nuclear weapons has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years, especially since the events on September 11, 2001 and its aftermath. Gamma ray spectrometers are an important tool in checking the proliferation of the nuclear weapons. Important re ...

  4. Non-Energetic Payload Technologies

    SBC: BLAZETECH CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA05011

    Conventional weapons rely on blast and fragmentation as the primary defeat mechanism, whereas non-energetic payloads rely on other means to defeat the target. Non-energetic weapons may defeat targets by the dispersion of aerosols (solid or liquid) or gases to interact with critical target elements. The objective is to cause some combination of denial, disruption, degradation, or destruction witho ...

  5. Integrated Protein/Nucleic Acid Microarray CB Detector

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the proposed program is to develop a portable, low-cost, label-free (reagentless), microarray system capable of near real-time simultaneous detection and identification of multiple analytes (bacteria, viruses, spores, toxins) with high sensitivity and low false alarm rate. Notably, the system will be capable of detection/identification of agents on the basis of protein and/or nuc ...

  6. Discontinuous Graphite Fiber Reinforced Al 520 Matrix Composite for Structural Reactive Material

    SBC: METAL MATRIX CAST COMPOSITES, LLC (DBA M            Topic: DTRA05002

    Discontinuous graphite fiber reinforced aluminum magnesium matrix composite with microscopically dispersed add-on oxidizer coating is proposed for the application of enhanced lethality munitions. The composite with the coating is light-weight and reactive, which will generate high reaction temperature and a large amount of reaction heat. The composite also has sufficient mechanical strength for ...

  7. Fiberoptic Diisocyanate Personal Monitoring Device

    SBC: LIGHTLINE TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    LightLine Technologies proposes to develop a highly sensitive fiberoptic personal monitoirng device similar to a sampling badge, targeted for the simple and conventional measurement of total isocyanate and diisocyanate (I&DCY) airbourne exposure. With verymodest smapling processing (controlled heating) sensing of all types of I&DCYs will be possige and is the ptimary goal of this program. Ths sa ...

  8. Identification and Sorting of Printed Wiring Boards (PWB) Within an E-Waste Recycling Stream

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    Electoronic waste (e-waste) is one of the most rapidly growing waste problems worldwide. Improper handling of e-waste results in vast amounts of toxic waste being sent to landfill and leaching into the water supply. Due to these concerns e-waste recycling is a rapidly growing industry. Unfortunately, most current e-waste recycling processes rely on either manual hand sorting or differental dens ...

  9. Multiplexed Chemical Sensor for Water Security

    SBC: REAL-TIME ANALYZERS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    The overall goal of this proposed program (through Phase III) is to provide the EPA with a chemical sensor thatn can be multiplerxed into water distributon systems to provide early warning of poisoned water supples. This will be accomplished by developing surface-enhanced Raman (SER) sensors than can be integrated into water supply systems and coupled to a central Paman analyzer via fiber optics. ...

  10. Title: Chemical/Biological Agent Standoff Detection

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05004

    Spectral Sciences, Inc. proposes an innovative standoff detection system to enable military personal to detect the presence of chemicals agents and other hazardous materials from large (multiple kilometer) distances. The proposed system combines a revolutionary adaptive spectrometer concept with advanced signal processing algorithms to provide detection and quantification based on the thermal infr ...
