  1. Autonomous navigation through small, confined spaces

    SBC: Greensight Agronomics, Inc.            Topic: DTRA182002

    GreenSight Agronomics (GSAg) is proposing to develop a man-portable, fully autonomous aerial mapping system to satisfy the goal of the solicitation: quickly and completely mapping a confined space with no human guidance. The vehicle will have a 400 mm frame size to provide an ideal balance between maneuverability, flight time, and payload capacity. We have chosen the Pixhawk platform running ArduP ...

  2. Materials Engineering of Alkali Halide and Rare Earth Halide Scintillators

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA182007

    Scintillators are the major components of radiation detection systems used in identification of Special Nuclear Materials.One of their key properties is the energy resolution (ER) that links directly to isotope identification capabilities.Typically the ER for scintillators varies from 3% (at 662 keV, FWHM) for the best materials to more common 6-7%.At the moment, many detectors use latter material ...

  3. Innovative Materials Engineering and Growth of a High Performance and Low Cost Scintillator

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: DTRA182007

    The goal of this program is to produce radiation detector scintillators with enhanced-medium energy resolution of 2-3%, at costs approaching those of medium energy resolution detectors such as CsI.To achieve this goal, a two pronged approach will be pursued.First, we will employ materials engineering tools to improve the performance of an existing scintillator with superior attributes.Second, an i ...

  4. Alternative Signature Detectors for Long Range Nuclear Material Identification

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162003

    Increasing the distance for standoff detection of nuclear materials, beyond that capable with direct radiation detection, using alternative signatures, such as the concentration of ionization in the surrounding atmosphere, improves the ability to locate, track and monitor this material.Ionizing radiation generates free elections, ions, and exited states in the nearby atmosphere, even when the sour ...

  5. CANTEAN: Cave and Narrow Tunnel Exploration and Navigation

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: DTRA182002

    In response to the DTRA182-002 solicitation, we propose CANTEAN: Cave and Narrow Tunnel Exploration and Navigation, a flying system that employs the use of low-SWaP sensors and processors using advanced algorithms for rapid navigation and mapping of unknown, subterranean areas as part of a heterogeneous team.Bio-inspired obstacle avoidance and navigation and the efficient exchange and merging of s ...

  6. Collaboration-Optimized Network for Naturlistic Exploration and Communication about Traffic (CONNECT)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: 081NH2

    Collaboration-Optimized Network for Naturalistic Exploration and Communication about Traffic (CONNECT) 3/19/2018 Collaboration-Optimized Network for Naturalistic Exploration and Communication about Traffic (CONNECT) will be a tool that allows users to easily generate a wide range of data visualizations from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS). CONNECT will leverage open-source visual ...

  7. Detection of THC Use in Drivers

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 171NH1012

    Proposal title: Detection of THC Use in Drivers The overall objective of this program is to develop a portable, cost-effective and non-invasive sensor device for near real-time salivary THC detection to be used at roadside in drivers. This will eliminate the need for expensive and time-consuming analytical techniques which have a turn-around time of several days. During the Phase I program Giner ...

  8. Broken Rail Detection from Flashing Rear End Device

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 171FR2

    Proposal title: A Robust Railway Track Crack Detection System Using Thermal Signatures In Phase I, we developed a practical sensor platform suitable for mounting on the back of train. A large amount of IR images associated with rail tracks were collected on an MBTA train. Algorithms were developed to identify both right and left tracks from a moving train. To help detect track cracks, we develope ...

  9. Detection of THC Use in Drivers

    SBC: N2 Biomedical, LLC            Topic: 171NH1

    Proposal title: Detection of THC Use in Drivers The intoxicating effects of marijuana are of concern to the law enforcement community as well as to the general manufacturing, service and commerce community where employees may need to be screened for intoxication. A reliable method to quantitatively measure the amount of the intoxicating agent delta-9- tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in suspected marij ...

  10. Integrated Multi-mode Handheld RIID

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA152007

    The goal of the project is to develop a handheld instrument that detects, identifies, and categorizes radioactive sources based on gamma, thermal-, and fast-neutron signatures. Existing radioisotope identification devices (RIIDs) are typically biased toward gamma spectroscopy; some instruments may use an additional inefficient neutron counter in form of a He-3 tube. The recent development of mat ...
