  1. Intelligent Molecular Model Kit and Software Suite for Improving High School Chemistry Instruction and Student Achievement

    SBC: MolySym, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Model perception and understanding the spatial structure of organic molecules have historically been a source of difficulty for high school chemistry students. The classic ball-and-stick model, developed in 1865, is still used today to convey the fundamental characteristics of a molecular system. This model is an inadequate representation of a dynamic system, which fails to accurately represent ...

  2. Active Interrogation System for Detecting and Identifying SNM

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07003

    Active interrogation holds the most promise for detecting heavily shielded materials at a distance. This effort will use pulsed neutron excitation of fission reactions in the target being inspected in conjunction with an imaging detector. Special nuclear material (SNM) that is present will undergo fission reactions that generate prompt and delayed neutrons which will be emitted by the target. Th ...

  3. Scintillation Detector with Fast-Neutron/Gamma ray Discrimination

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07001

    The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear missiles and “dirty bombs” are a serious threat in the world today and especially to the well-being of the United States. Preventing the spread of these nuclear weapons has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years, more so since the events on September 11, 2001 and its aftermath. The presence of nuclear weapons can ...

  4. Improvements in Scintillation Technology for Detection of Nuclear Radiation

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07004

    High-resolution scintillation crystals and crystal arrays are important components of current and future handheld and arrayed detectors (used for DOD applications) and scintillation spectrometers (routinely used in high energy physics research, medical imaging, diffraction, homeland security, nuclear waste clean-up, nuclear treaty verification and safeguards, and geological exploration). Unfortun ...

  5. Nanocomposite Scintillator for Detection of Nuclear Radiation

    SBC: BOSTON APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES, INCORPORATED            Topic: DTRA07004

    Recent advances in scintillator materials research have resulted in the development of lanthanum halides detectors. These detectors offer improved energy resolution, faster emission and excellent temperature dependency and linearity characteristics. However, the lanthanum halides crystals have not yet been grown to preferred large sizes. Moreover, this material possesses a fatal drawback of being ...

  6. Technology enhanced science education.

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a troubling decline in the number of US citizens training to become scientists and engineers. There are insufficient numbers of qualified science teachers in the middle schools, where interest in science must be kindled. Technology enhanced learning environments (TELEs), which could improve science education, are not being widely deployed. This Phase I project will customize a TELE to a) ...

  8. "Typical day" Meteorological Data for Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion (ATD) Modeling

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: DTRA06004

    The complexity of Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion (ATD) modeling requires physically consistent weather data evolving in both space and time. Spatially and/or temporally averaged data found in climatological products is not suitable for ATD modeling. The proposed solution for providing “typical day” meteorological data couples innovative search techniques applied to long-range historical ...

  9. Extending DTRA's Atmospheric Transport and Diffusion Modeling Capabilities to the Upper Atmosphere

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: DTRA06005

    Atmospheric and Environmental Research, Inc. proposes to develop a prototype threat-reduction system for the dispersion of a weapons-of-mass destruction warhead in the upper atmosphere. Our system will extend current DTRA atmospheric transport and dispersion capabilities into the 20-120 km altitude region. This will be accomplished using a combination of a zonally-averaged transport model of the s ...

  10. Robot-mounted Mulit-mode Imaging System for IED Detection

    SBC: American Science and Engineering, Inc.            Topic: DTRA06008

    The proposed muti-mode imaging system will allow a combination of X-ray Backscatter imaging (proven successful in finding IEDs in AS&E's Z Backscatter Van) and other sensor modalities, such as vapor/trace detection and video, to be mounted on a robotic platform(the iRobot R-Gator) such that the system can be quickly moved into location to examine a potential threat, including WMD dispersal devices ...
