  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. 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 ...

  6. Large Area Neutron Counter Array

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: DTRA03003

    NOVA Scientific will demonstrate a large-area/low-cost neutron detection system having high neutron sensitivity with very high signal-to noise ratio. The approach utilizes an embedded neutron absorber in a solid state detector based upon known Microchannel Plate (MCP) processing technology. The system detects concealed fissionable materials located several meters away, by converting the neutron si ...
