  1. Enhanced Beta-Batteries: A Long Life Power Source for Sensors Monitoring WMD

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA102004

    While many applications may have access to harvestable energy in the form of solar radiation (or other ambient light), wind, environmental vibration, or wave motion, not all do. In this proposal, RMD targets the most challenging applications, sensors that must operate for many months or years and which have undependable or no access to environmental energy. These sensors need a self contained, com ...

  2. Advanced nanocomposite scintillator for gamma radiation detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: DTRA08005

    Until now gamma radiation detection has required large single crystals of sensitive materials that are difficult to produce consistently on an industrial scale. In collaboration with a research group at the University of Texas at Arlington, Agiltron proposes to develop a new class of nanocomposite scintillator materials. The radiation detection characteristics of the synthetic nanoparticles in the ...

  3. 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/DTRA 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). Un ...

  4. High-Sensitivity Military GPS Receivers for Ground-Users

    SBC: MAYFLOWER COMMUNICATIONS COMPANY, INC.            Topic: NGA07001

    This proposal addresses the NGA SBIR program objective to develop and demonstrate GPS receiver improvements for ground users to provide significant “high-sensitivity” signal tracking performance over conventional military GPS receivers. The proposed system consists of (i) the Mayflower “NavAssure” SAASM GPS receiver; and (ii) receiver software signal processing enhancements, in order to m ...

  7. A COMBINED THEORETIACL AND EXPERIMENTAL EFFORT IS PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPING A SUITABLE EPM MATERIAL WHICH PROVIDES SUBSTANTIAL PROTECTION AGAINST ANTICIPATED LASER THREATS.

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A COMBINED THEORETIACL AND EXPERIMENTAL EFFORT IS PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPING A SUITABLE EPM MATERIAL WHICH PROVIDES SUBSTANTIAL PROTECTION AGAINST ANTICIPATED LASER THREATS. A NEW MATERIAL CONCEPT IS PROPOSED WHICH PROVIDES FOR DISSIPATION OF INCIDENT LASER ENERGY TO REFLECTION, ABLATION AND ANISOTROPIC THERMAL CONDUCTION. THIS MATERIAL IS EXPECTED TO INCREASE THE LASER INTERACTION TIME REQUIRED FOR ...

  8. SYSTEMS

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A TECHNIQUE FOR RAPID TEMPORAL AND SPATIAL IMAGING OF HIGH POWER LASER BEAMS. THIS METHOD IS WINDOWLESS AND MAY BE EMPLOYED WHERE LASER INTENSITIES EXCEED THE DAMAGE THRESHOLDS FOR CONVENTIONAL CALORIMETRIC METHODS. THE DIAGNOSTIC UTILIZES THE TECHNIQUE OF OPTICAL-INFRARED DOUBLE RESONANCE TO OBSERVE BEAM INTENSITIES. IN THIS TECHNIQUE, THE OUTPUT OF A MWIR CHEMICAL LASER (DF ...

  9. PREVIOUS GAS GUN EXPERIMENTS HAVE DEMONSTRATED THAT THE EROSION MASS LOSS RATIO CAN EXHIBIT LOW DEPENDENCY ON IMPACT VELOCITY, IF PARTICLE NUMBER DENSITY IS HIGH.

    SBC: Rosenbaum H Assocs Inc            Topic: N/A

    PREVIOUS GAS GUN EXPERIMENTS HAVE DEMONSTRATED THAT THE EROSION MASS LOSS RATIO CAN EXHIBIT LOW DEPENDENCY ON IMPACT VELOCITY, IF PARTICLE NUMBER DENSITY IS HIGH. IN SEPARATE TESTS, ALUMINUM TARGETS RESPONDED WITH LARGE AREA INCIPIENT PUNCTURE RATHER THAN INTENSE EROSION, WHEN SUBJECTED TO HIGH PARTICLE NUMBER DENSITY ENVIRONMENTS. IN MULTIBURST CLOUDS OF INTEREST, THESE PHENOMENA OF DEBRIS SHIELD ...

  10. THE WORK OF MANDELBROT HAS SHOWN THAT FRACTALS CAN BE USED EFFECTIVELY TO MODEL WITH COMPUTER GRAPHICS MANY TYPES OF NATURAL SHAPES AND FIGURES.

    SBC: VISIDYNE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE WORK OF MANDELBROT HAS SHOWN THAT FRACTALS CAN BE USED EFFECTIVELY TO MODEL WITH COMPUTER GRAPHICS MANY TYPES OF NATURAL SHAPES AND FIGURES. THESE INCLUDE GEOGRAPHICAL FEATURES AS WELL AS CLOUDS AND TURBULENT FLUID BEHAVIOR. IT IS PROPOSED TO APPLY FRACTAL GEOMETRY IN A PURELY PHENOMENOLOGICAL FASHION TO THE MODELING OF FIREBALL SHAPES AND TEXTURES FOR POSSIBLE APPLICATION IN SUCH NUCLEAR EFFE ...
