  3. Advanced Pressure Sensitive Adhesive for Low Observable Outer Mold Line Repair (1001-604)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF093114

    In this Phase II program Triton Systems will develop and optimize a pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) system to meet the Air Force requirements for adhesion in the 2 8 pli range across a temperature range of -65degreesF to +250degreesF. In addition the PSA will be resistant to a variety of aircraft fluids including JP-8, oils, and de-icing fluids. Production of the PSA will be scaled-up to be p ...

  7. Magnetically Switchable Explosives Vapor Isolator(1001-687)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB0101004

    The proposed work details a molecular recognition based explosives pre-concentration and sampling system which can be coupled to a wide variety of current and future commercially available sensors. The system works by initially isolating and concentrating specific explosives from a sample stream through a novel, robust and tunable molecular recognition system. The concentrated molecules are rele ...

  8. New Wide Bandgap Semiconductor Materials for Neutron Detection

    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 LiGaSe2, LiGaTe2, LiInS2, and LiInSe2. 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 ...

  9. DiamondBack: Sensor Fusion and Feature-Based Human/Animal Classification for UGS

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: HSB092002

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) needs a low cost reliable automated system to detect illegal border crossings. Current seismic UGS systems use cadence-based intrusion detection algorithms and are easily confused between humans and animals. The ensuing false alarms reduce the trustworthiness of the system and lead to unnecessary actions which may be costly. Scientific Systems Company Inc ...

  10. 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 ...
