  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 ...

  3. Location and Yield of Nuclear Events Using Radionuclide Monitoring Data and Inverse Plume Modeling

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A worldwide network of radionuclide monitoring stations has been established to monitor radioactive fall-out from nuclear tests. These stations sample the air for radioactive particulates and Xenon on a daily basis. This project is to develop a softwaresystem to determine the location, timing, and yield of nuclear events and their corresponding estimation probabilities using the sampled data from ...

  5. Large Area Neutron Counter Array

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    NOVA Scientific will demonstrate a large-area/low-cost neutron detection system having high detector quantum efficiency and high signal-to noise ratio. The approach utilizes an embedded neutron absorber in a solid state detector, utilizing known processingtechnology. The system detects fissionable materials by converting the neutron signal into a large electron pulse. The unit is light for field d ...

  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 ...

  9. High Performance Dielectrics for High Energy Density Capacitors

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aspen Systems proposes to develop high dielectric constant (K), low loss tellurium polymers to meet the design objectives of high energy density capacitors. In the proposed Phase I program we will apply rigorous computational chemical techniques to predict the properties of this new class of polymers. We will attempt the synthesis of the parent polymer of the tellurium family, fabricate films for ...
