  1. CVD Diamond Neutron Detectors with Pulse Shape Discrimination

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Proliferation of nuclear weapons is a serious threat in the world today. One way to determine the presence of nuclear weapons is to detect neutrons emitted by special nuclear material(SNM) such as highly enriched uranium and weapons grade plutonium. The purpose of this project is to develop improved solid state neutron detectors from CVD diamond for homeland security applications. Phase I work wil ...

  2. Improved Solid-State Neutron Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB071009

    The use and applications of radiological sources, for power, medical, and defense applications, continuously increases with time. Illicit nuclear materials represent a threat for the safety of the American citizens and the detection and interdiction of a nuclear weapon is a national problem that has not been yet solved. This represents an enormous challenge to current detection methods and monitor ...

  4. Miniature MEMS-based Chemical & Explosives Detector

    SBC: BOSTON MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    Boston MicroSystems (BMS) proposes to develop a cell-phone sized instrument for detecting hazardous chemical and explosive threats. The instrument is based on BMS' PicoSensor® chemical and explosives detection platform, which has been developed in part under DHS support and is capable of sensing explosives and toxic chemicals at ppb and even ppt (trillion) levels. The Picoensor® consists of a ME ...

  6. TUNABLE HIGH T(C) SUPERCONDUCTING INFRARED DETECTORS

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A SUPERSONDUCTOR BASED INFRARED DETECTOR WITH A CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE SENSITIVITY IS PROPOSED. THE SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILM IS TO HAVE A POLYCRYSTALLINE NATURE TO ACHIEVE JOSEPHSON JUNCTION BEHAVIOR DIRECTLY THROUGH THE ANISOTROPIC SUPERCONDUCTING PROPERTIES OF YBA(2)CU(3)O(7-X). THE DEPOSITION SUBSTRATE IS TO BE AN OXYGEN ION CONDUCTOR THAT WILL PERMIT CONTINUOUS AND CONTROLLED ADJUSTMENT OF THE ...

  7. Non-Contact Trace Explosives Sampling and Preconcentration for Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Device Detection

    SBC: EXCELLIMS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Ion mobility spectrometer based explosives trace detectors (ETD) have been widely used in airport check points, ports of entry, government buildings, and other high security facilities. Most of these systems require manual collection of trace particles from vehicles via direct swabbing of surface areas of interest. Sample collection efficiency and inconsistency pose significant challenges to the e ...

  8. REMOTELY OPERATED MINE DETECTION SYSTEM

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE CAPABILITY EXISTS TO DETECT MAGNETIC, NONMAGNETIC, METALLIC AND PLASTIC BURIED AND SURFACE SCATTERED MINES THROUGH THE USE OF A SIMPLE SUITE OF SENSORS FROM THE SURFACE. THE CAPABILITY ALSO EXISTS TO DESIGN, BUILD, AND OPERATE A LOW COST REMOTE CONTROLLED PLATFORM FOR CARRYING THIS SUITE OF SENSORS. BOTH TECHNOLOGIES ARE CURRENTLY UNDER DEVELOPMENT AND/OR BEING DEMONSTRATED AT FOSTER-MILLER, I ...

  9. LEADING EDGE STRUCTURAL CONCEPT FOR HYPERVELOCITY VEHICLE

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A MAJOR PROBLEM FACING PHYPERSONIC VEHICLE DESIGNERS IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF FLIGHT STRUCTURES WHICH CAN WITHSTAND MULTIPLE HEATING CYCLES TO OVER 3500 DEG F. ADVANCED CARBON/CARBON COMPOSITES (ACC) ARE A LEADING CANDIDATE BUT WILL REQUIRE IMPROVED STRUCTURAL CONCEPTS AND OXIDATION RESISTANT COATINGS. CURRENT 2-D ACC MADE FROM CARBON-PHENOLIC HAVE POOR TRANSVERSE STRENGTH AND THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY. 3 ...

  10. NOVEL CARBON-CARBON COMPOSITE WITH IMPROVED STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES AND PROVISIONS FOR ACTIVE LEADING EDGE COOLING

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    EFFECTIVE PERFORMANCE OF REUSABLE HYPERSONIC VEHICLES WILL DEPEND ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF THERMAL PROTECTION SYSTEMS (TPS) FOR NOSE TIP, WING LEADING EDGE, AND FUSELAGE STRUCTURES CAPABLE OF OPERATION FOR EXTENDED PERIODS IN AN EXTREME AEROHEATING ENVIRONMENT. MINIMUM WEIGHT DESIGN MAY BE ACHIEVED VIA A COMBINATION OF ACTIVE/PASSIVE TPS APPROACHES. THIS WOULD INVOLVE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH TEMPER ...
