  1. 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 ...

  2. 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. 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 ...

  6. EMP SIMULATOR

    SBC: CASDE CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A 2.5 MV PULSER WAS BUILT AND TESTED AS A "PROOF-OF-PRINCIPLE" FOR THE EMPRESS II THREAT LEVEL NAVY EMP TEST FACILITY. NO DISPOSITION OF THIS QUARTER SCALE PULSER HAS BEEN MADE. CASDE CORPORATION BELIEVES THAT THIS PULSER OFFERS DNA AND THE SERVICES A UNIQUE DEVICE THAT COULD BE UTILIZED FOR EMP TESTING OF NUMEROUS DOD EQUIPMENTS. CASDE PROPOSES TO: (1) IDENTIFY THE PRESENT CAPABILITIES AND PARAME ...

  7. THE BASE SURGE EFFECT AS COMPARED TO OTHER NUCLEAR WEAPON BURST EFFECTS

    SBC: CASDE CORP.            Topic: N/A

    IF U.S. NAVY SURFACE COMBATANTS SURVIVE THE EARLY EFFECTS OF NUCLEAR WEAPON BURSTS SUCH AS AIRBLAST, THERMAL, ABIS, AND UNDEX, THERE IS STILL A REMAINING THREAT FROM THE BASE SURGE. THIS THREAT IS COUNTERED BY AN ON BOARD WASHDOWN SYSTEM. THIS STUDY WILL DETERMINE THE REGIONS OF THE BATTLE ZONE WHICH ARE (OR ARE NOT) DOMINATED BY THE BASE SURGE AND ASSESS THE BENEFIT DERIVED FROM SUCH WASHDOWN SYS ...

  8. HOLOGRAPHIC PATTERN RECOGNITION FOR ARMS CONTROL

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE CONTRACTOR HAS PATENTED TECHNOLOGY FOR A UNIQUE PROCESS THAT DIRECTLY CONVERTS AN ACOUSTIC SIGNAL INTO A VISIBLE ONE IN REAL-TIME WITHOUT ELECTRONIC CIRCUITRY. THIS RELIES ON THE ACOUSTO-OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF A CONTINUOUS LAYER OF LIQUID CRYSTAL THIN FILM LAYER WHICH SERVES AS BOTH THE SENSOR AND THE DISPLAY. THE IMAGE CAN BE VIEWED DIRECTLY BY MEANS OF CCD CAMERA. HOLOGRAPHY PROVIDES FOR BOTH ...

  9. DEVELOPMENT OF UNIFORM GAS DISCHARGE PLASMA SOURCES FOR PLASMA OPENING SWITCH APPLICATIONS

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    PLASMA OPENING SWITCHES (POS) ARE WIDELY USED FOR CURRENT COMPRESSION AND OWER AMPLIFICATION IN INDUCTIVE ENERGY STORE PULSE POWER SYSTEMS. FLASHBOARD PLASMA SOURCES ARE WIDELY USED AS PLASMA INJECTORS IN THESE POS'S. THE FLASHBOARD PLASMA IS PRODUCED BY SURFACE BREAKDOWN ON AN INSULATOR IN VACUUM. SINCE THE SURFACE CONDITIONS DEPEND ON THE PREVIOUS HISTORY, THE RESULTING PLASMA IS NOT UNIFORM, RE ...

  10. Development of a Differential Interferometric Technique for Measuring Magnetic Field Profiles in a Plasma Radiation Source

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The current distribution in plasma radiation sources is both a yardstick for measuring the coupling efficiency of the generator, and a means of studying the implosion dynamics of the load. Since the current distribution cannot be directly measured, it must be deduced from the magnetic field profile. Magnetic field distributions, based on the Faraday rotation of polarized laser light, are typical ...
