  1. Semiconductor Neutron Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB0151009

    We propose to develop a thermal neutron detection module based on LiInSe2 semiconductor material as an alternative to He-3 detectors. While recent depletion of He-3 gas is the main driving force behind development of He-3 replacements, other issues with He-3 tubes such as a pressurized vessel used and microphonic issues are also important factors in handheld and portable detectors. LiInSe2 offers ...

  2. TlBr Detectors for Radiation Pagers

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB0151009

    RMD is proposing to construct a compact detector module for radiation pager applications utilizing a TlBr semiconductor device as the radiation sensitive element. Due to its excellent energy resolution, detection efficiency and low cost crystal growth method, a TlBr-based pager should greatly expand the capabilities and availability of these instruments. Various detector designs were evaluated dur ...

  3. Non-Contact Device for Latent Fingerprint Capture

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: HSB0151001

    TIAX will develop a set of fingerprint treatments (including either chemical or instrumental methods, or a combination of both) that allows accurate collection of latent print images from any of the three main classes of surface (porous, nonporous, and adhesive) without compromising subsequent profiling of DNA that may be present in the print. Treatments identified will be developed into prototyp ...

  4. Stable Tl-based Semiconductor Modules for Radiation Detection

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: HSB0151009

    Thallium-Bromide is a promising semiconductor material for detection of gamma rays, primarily due its high atomic number, high electrical resistivity, and optimum bandgap energy. This program focuses on development of TlBr radiation detector modules for room temperature applications and demonstration of two types of Personal Radiation Detection (PRD) systems based on TlBr modules. A number of ANS ...

  5. Smartphone-based PCS Radiation Analysis and Personnel Training Toolkit

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: HSB0161011

    Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a PCS-Enabled Smart Device Toolkit that will reduce the cost of training personnel and the time required to detect, identify, and localize a radiological source. The ability to simulate the response of a radiation detector to a virtual source for training purposes will be developed. This simulation will be based on a data fusion algorithm to accura ...

  6. Multi-Signature Composite Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB0161012

    Radiation Monitoring Devices has developed CLYC scintillation technology into a new detector type with its ability to simultaneously record and distinguish signals from gamma rays and neutrons. As with any detector, RMD is continuously striving to increase CLYC's active volume, which is most directly impacted by crystal growth. In parallel, RMD has also been evaluating techniques outside of growth ...

  8. Analysis and Development of Scalable Techniques for Creating Optically Transparent Resistive Films with Tapered Resistivity

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM16004

    Conductive films that maintain transparency are a key element in many current products and industries, including electronic devices for touch screens and automobiles to defrost windows. Such films are also useful in military applications. By introducing a resistive taper in conductive films or antennas, overall performance can be improved by reducing backscattering and increasing sensitivity in an ...

  9. Malware Prediction for Situational Understanding and Preemptive Cyber Defense

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: HSB0161003

    BlueRISC's proposed solution provides a fundamentally new approach to predicting the presence of malware in a network based on a novel graph-theoretical framework. Unlike traditional approaches that are reactive, it builds on a predictive capability that is flexible, adaptive, and is not relying on signatures or strict rule based malware definitions. The approach captures system motion as a predic ...
