  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. Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects in High-Speed Compound Semiconductor Microelectronics

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA08003

    For ultra high speed applications in DoD satellite systems, devices and circuits fabricated from III–V semiconductor compounds offer significant advantages over silicon-based technology in terms of operating speed and power. However, the uncertainty in single-event-effect (SEE) response of compound technologies forces the use of empirically-based hardening techniques with penalties in increased ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. X-RAY/GAMMA-RAY TELESCOPE FOR USE IN TREATY VERIFICATION AND OPEN SKIES INSPECTIONS

    SBC: PHYSITRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Physitron proposes development of an x-ray/gamma-ray telescope that can be used for treaty verification and compliance testing. In particular, the x-ray/gamma-ray telescope can be mounted in the Open Skies Treaty aircraft to provide a capability of detect, characterize and identify nuclear weapons development work. Objectives of the development program include: (1) adapting an existing gamma-ra ...
