  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. CB Sensor Network Architecture Development Tool for Improved Probability of Cloud Intercept

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: CBD07108

    Physical Sciences Inc. proposes to continue development of a software tool that is capable of defining the selection and placement of a constellation of standoff and point sensors for the protection of base facilities and forces deployed in the field. The network will be defined using an algorithm that optimizes the collective performance of the sensors as a function of deployment need, geography, ...

  4. Dynamic Multicomponent Optical Analyzer for Chemical Weapon (CW) Exposure Studies

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: CBD08104

    Spectral Sciences Inc. proposes to develop a prototype sensor for real-time trace-level analysis of complex multicomponent gas mixtures, specifically those containing Chemical Weapon (CW) agents and interferents. The instrument is based on high power quantum cascade lasers and photocoustic spectroscopy detection. Advanced detection algorithms take advantage of wide spectral coverage to provide hi ...

  5. Collective Protection for Military Working Dogs

    SBC: TECHNICAL PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: CBD08103

    Doctrine for employment of canines in a CBRN environment has evolved into a Collective Protection approach. Providing COLPRO has several very significant implications for Canine kennels and shelters: „X The outer surface of the structure must be CB agent impervious „X The outer surface of the structure must resist effects of the decontamination process „X The system must provide the animal ...

  6. Source Term Model for Fine Particle Resuspension from Indoor Surfaces(1001-173)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD07109

    Airborne chemical and biological (CB) agents released in one section of a building travel via the building’s heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and disperse throughout the building, while undergoing deposition and resuspension recurrently. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has been employed to simulate dispersion of CB agents in a building through HVAC systems. How well t ...

  7. Batteryless Sensors for Intrusion Detection and Assessment of Threats

    SBC: Anro Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A batteryless and wireless sensor for intrusion detection and assessment of threats which requires no battery, external power or wiring is proposed. These types of sensors derive energy from passing vehicles or persons, and indicate their presence, location, speed, etc., via a self-generated short-range radio signal. These sensors require no maintenance, and can be inconspicuously placed in window ...
