  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. "Typical day" Meteorological Data for Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion (ATD) Modeling


    The complexity of Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion (ATD) modeling requires physically consistent weather data evolving in both space and time. Spatially and/or temporally averaged data found in climatological products is not suitable for ATD modeling. The proposed solution for providing “typical day” meteorological data couples innovative search techniques applied to long-range historical ...

  3. Extending DTRA's Atmospheric Transport and Diffusion Modeling Capabilities to the Upper Atmosphere


    Atmospheric and Environmental Research, Inc. proposes to develop a prototype threat-reduction system for the dispersion of a weapons-of-mass destruction warhead in the upper atmosphere. Our system will extend current DTRA atmospheric transport and dispersion capabilities into the 20-120 km altitude region. This will be accomplished using a combination of a zonally-averaged transport model of the s ...

  4. Robot-mounted Mulit-mode Imaging System for IED Detection

    SBC: American Science and Engineering, Inc.            Topic: DTRA06008

    The proposed muti-mode imaging system will allow a combination of X-ray Backscatter imaging (proven successful in finding IEDs in AS&E's Z Backscatter Van) and other sensor modalities, such as vapor/trace detection and video, to be mounted on a robotic platform(the iRobot R-Gator) such that the system can be quickly moved into location to examine a potential threat, including WMD dispersal devices ...

  5. High Energy Density Capacitors for X-ray Simulators

    SBC: Phoenix Science & Technology            Topic: DTRA06013

    This proposal utilizes our experience with the design and use of high energy density pulsed capacitors to demonstrate the feasibility of high energy density metallized film capacitors that meets the requirements for an x-ray simulator capacitors. This work extends our success with designing high energy density capacitors for other high current pulsed discharge applications by trading off energy de ...

  6. Enhanced Stability and Penetration Depth in Deep Earth Penetrators

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: DTRA06009

    Physical Sciences Inc (PSI) proposes to enhance the performance of deep earth penetrators using fluid additives (gas, liquid) to mitigate the deleterious effects of interactions with natural and manmade heterogeneous target materials. In order to minimize these shear effects from the heterogeneous target impacts, we propose to envelope the projectile with innovative surface layers that create eit ...
