  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 ...

  4. Rotary-Wing UAV as On-Demand Sensor Platform for Aircraft Operators

    SBC: LITE MACHINES CORP.            Topic: SOCOM05011

    USSOCOM has a need to provide high-resolution video imagery to the sensor operators of current and future gunships, other unmanned aircraft systems, and similar platforms, while supporting missions above an area of interest. The key factors driving this need are the ability to see beyond visual range of the main platform, assist sensors on the main platform to see through weather and to aid in mo ...

  5. 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 ...

  9. ATMOSPHERIC EFFECTS OF A NUCLEAR EXCHANGE: MODIFICATION OF CHEMICAL COMPOSITIONS OPTICAL PROPERTIES AND CLIMATE

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IN THE LAST TWO YEARS, THERE HAVE BEEN INCREASING CONCERNS ABOUT THE POTENTIALLY LARGE COOLING OF THE LAND SURFACE TEMPERATURE RESULTING FROM THE SOOT AND DUST INJECTED INTO THE ATMOSPHERE BY THE EXPLOSIONS AND SECONDARY FIRES FROM NUCLEAR EXCHANGES, THE SO-CALLED "NUCLEAR WINTER" SCENARIOS. HERE WE ARGUE THAT, IN ADDITION TO DUST AND SOOT, A LARGE NUMBER OF TRACE GASES (NO[X], H[2]0, HC, CH[4]) C ...

  10. HIGH PRESSURE FIBER OPTIC SENSOR FOR NUCLEAR TEST INSTRUMENTATION

    SBC: GEO-CENTERS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE GOAL OF THIS PHASE I EXPERIMENTAL EFFORT IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING AN OPTICAL GLASS AS A SENSING ELEMENT FOR VERY HIGH PRESSURE MEASUREMENTS. CURRENTLY, PIEZO-ELECTRIC GAUGES ARE TYPICALLY USED. AS THESE SENSORS ARE ELECTRICAL IN NATURE, THEY ARE ADVERSELY AFFECTED BY ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI) WHICH IS CREATED IN A NUCLEAR EVENT. THE PROPOSED FIBER OPTIC SENSOR BASED ...
