  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. 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 ...

  4. NEXT GENERATION ULTRA WIDEBAND (UWB) INTRUSTION DETECTION RADAR FOR THE PROTECTION OF NUCLEAR FACILITIES

    SBC: Anro Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IMPULSE RADAR WHICH DERIVES ITS "MAIN BANG", A TRANSIENT, BY EXCITING AN ANTENNA CAVITY WITH A SUBNANOSECOND PULSE HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BE VERY EFFECTIVE FOR INTRUSION DETECTION. A RECENT SBIR PROGRAM COMPLETED FOR DNA RESULTED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW LOW COST, LIGHT WEIGHT, RADAR SENSOR FOR THE PROTECTION OF NUCLEAR SITES NOW BEING MARKETED COMMERCIALLY. DURING THE DNA FIELD EXPERIMENTS ON ANIMA ...

  5. FIBER OPTIC MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS FOR MOLDABLE EXPLOSIVES CURE MONITORING AND CHARGE CHARACTERIZATION

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

    20 TON SPHERICAL EXPLOSIVE CHARGES MADE FROM MOLDABLE EXPLOSIVES HAVE BECOME INCREAINGLY IMPORTANT TO DNA'S ABOVEGROUND TEST PROGRAMS. THESE CHARGES PROVIDE LONGER DURATION FREE FIELD PRESSURE SIGNALS THAN CAN BE PRODUCED IN THE UNDERGROUND TEST ENVIRONMENT. THE SAFETY OF MANUFACTURING THESE 20 TON SPHERICAL CHARGES COULD BE GREATLY ENHANCED THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF FIBER OPTIC BASED INSTRUMENTA ...

  6. FIBER OPTIC ELECTRIC FIELD SENSORS FOR USE IN HARSH RADIATION ENVIRONMENTS

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

    FIBER OPTICE ELECTRIC FIELD MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS OFFER ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE AND ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE IMMUNITY THAT IS NOT PROVIDED BY STANDARD ELECTRON BASED INSTRUMENTATION. TO DATE FIBER OPTIC BASED ELECTRIC FIELD MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN USED MOSTLY IN ABOVEGROUND TEST APPLICATIONS. IN THE UNDERGROUND TEST ENVIRONMENT, SENSORS ARE EXPOSED TO A HARSH RADIATION ENVIRONMENT. TECHNIQUE ...

  9. MULTI-BEAM LASER INTERFEROMETER FOR PLASMA DENSITY MEASUREMENTS IN A PLASMA EROSION OPENING SWITCH (PEOS)

    SBC: SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY, INC            Topic: N/A

    SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY PROPOSES TO DESIGN, CONSTRUCT AND TEST AN ULTRA-SENSITIVE LASER INTERFEROMETER TO MEASURE THE PLASMA DENSITY INSIDE A PLASMA EROSION OPENING SWITCH DURING ITS CONDUCTION AND OPENING PHASES. A SIMILAR INTERFEROMETER HAS ALREADY BEEN PROVEN BY SRL FOR ULTRA-SENSITIVE GAS ABSORPTION MEASUREMENTS. THE HIGHER BANDWIDTH REQUIRED FOR PEOS MEASUREMENTS AND THE MORE HOSTILE PULS ...
