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 ...SBIR Phase I 2008 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
ATMOSPHERIC EFFECTS OF A NUCLEAR EXCHANGE: MODIFICATION OF CHEMICAL COMPOSITIONS OPTICAL PROPERTIES AND CLIMATESBC: 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], H0, HC, CH) C ...SBIR Phase I 1987 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
SBC: VISIDYNE, INC. Topic: N/A
THIS IS A FEASIBILITY STUDY TO EVALUATE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A TECHNIQUE FOR RAPID DEPOSITION OF ENERGY IN THE UPPER ATMOSPHERE AT LEVELS COMPARABLE WITH MEGATON DETONATIONS AT 200 KILOMETERS TO PROVIDE BASELINE DATA FOR PREDICTING INFRARED EMISSIONS FROM HIGH ALTITUDE NUCLEAR DETONATIONS. PREVIOUS MEASUREMENTS UTILIZED PULSES OF ELECTRONS LASTING SEVERAL SECONDS. IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE HIGHER ENERGY D ...SBIR Phase I 1987 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
