  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. Shock Resistant MEMS Optical Matrix Switch

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF071243

    Future military satellite fiber optic systems require a matrix optical switch for reconfigurability. But to date, no MEMS based switch has been able to withstand the harsh shock and vibration environment of space. Agiltron, Inc., an experienced manufacturer of aerospace qualified optical switches, proposes to realize a new MEMS-based fiber-optic matrix switch capable of vastly improved performance ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. VISION: Video Identification of Structures, Intentions, Objects, and Networks

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB082021

    Decision support tools for target identification and alert generation depend upon the classification of static and moving objects. Existing methods for object classification rely primarily on static information available in single-frame images. The data from long-range video surveillance assets are usually not sufficient to distinguish the objects from one another, and even if high-resolution data ...

  6. UBER-HEB: Universal Biologically-inspired Environment for Research: Hierarchical Ersatz Brain

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: ST081006

    Decades of exponential advancement in computer capabilities have transformed the world, from toddlers’ playthings to the technologies of war and peace. Some further advances are constrained by the limits of von Neumann machines; in particular, they do not learn well. Aptima proposes to conduct a feasibility study to design “UBER-HEB,” a non-von Neumann hierarchical universal learning system. ...

  8. ACTOR: Automated Collateral Tactics for OPFOR Responses

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A06210

    A key challenge for battlefield mission rehearsal and training systems is the estimation of enemy courses of action (COAs). Currently, adversarial COA development is a manual time-consuming process prone to errors due to limited knowledge about the adversary and its ability to adapt. Development of battlefield simulations with embedded technology that can predict its adversary’s intent and range ...

  9. Upconverting Films


    Recent advances in the single wavelength excitation to induce upconversion emission in transparent colloids of Lanthanide-doped NaYF4 nanocrystals provide the opportunity for significant performance in biological tagging applications. For many military missions, a cost-effective, ultra-compact, passively infrared detection is also required to take advantage of the weak fluorescence. Upconversion ...

  10. Evaluation of a Conceptual High Altitude Valveless Internal Combustion Engine Fueled by Green Monopropellant

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: SB072045

    Busek Co. Inc. proposes to conduct critical studies and experiments to establish the feasibility of a novel High ALtitude Endurance aircraft (HALE) engine called MICE for Monopropellant Internal Combustion Engine. The reference fuel is the hydroxyammonium nitrate (HAN) based monopropellant AF-M315E developed by AFRL for small thrusters in space applications. The heat of combustion of AF-M315E is ...
