  2. A Novel Cost Effective Method for Growing High Performance Radiation Sensors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082007

    Certain lanthanide halides have significantly higher light output than NaI:Tl, the comparison standard for scintillators, plus other important properties, including fast decay times and excellent proportionality. Unfortunately, lanthanide halides grown by traditional melt processes have high production costs and limited availability. Crystals are usually limited to about 5 cm x 5 cm, right cylinde ...

  3. Electromagnetically-Stirred THM Process for Growth of CZT

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: DTRA092007

    It is proposed to develop a novel process for growth of high quality CZT crystals for nuclear detection applications. Currently the THM process is the technology of choice for production of high quality CZT crystals. This process, however, suffers from extremely low growth rates. The development effort proposed here will seek to increase the crystal growth rate by 5-10 times the current levels ...

  4. Sensor Systems for Complete Residential Energy Monitoring

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: N/A

    In Phase 1, TIAX developed and demonstrated a residential energy monitoring system (R-EMS) with potential national energy savings of $20 billion annually. Based on user requirements and well-established systems engineering methodology, TIAX’s R-EMS solution is inexpensive, easy to install and operate, and is supportive of intuitive decision making about energy usage. In Phase 2, TIAX will extend ...

  5. Efficient Extraction of Oil from Microalgae

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: 815

    Microalgae are a promising feedstock for biofuels because of their high oil content, excellent CO2 capture, and ability to use brackish water and non-arable land. The extraction of oil from algae represents a challenging cost barrier to commercial biofuel production. Conventional technologies for algal oil extraction are energy-inefficient, cost-intensive, or non scalable, leading to barriers for ...

  6. New Satellite Data Products for the TV Broadcast Market

    SBC: Worldwinds, Inc.            Topic: 832

    Modern technology, particularly computers and weather satellites, and the availability of data provided by coordinated meteorological observing networks, has resulted in enormous improvements in the accuracy of weather forecasting. Satellites, in particular, have given forecasters routine access to observations and data from remote areas of the globe. However, graphical products produced for scien ...

  7. Next Generation in Detection Materials Processing

    SBC: Neotron Inc            Topic: DTRA092007

    Three nuclides are especially useful in detecting thermalized neutrons: helium-3, lithium-6 , and boron-10. Since current demand will deplete reserves of helium-3 in roughly two years, there is a large desire to develop detectors that have the capacity to replace helium-3 tubes. In this proposal we spell out our plan to adapt Neotron''s already developed fission neutron detector into a high effic ...

  8. AN OPTICAL FIBER INTRUSION LOCATION (FIBLOC) SENSOR FOR SURFACE AND SUBSURFACE PERIMETER PROTECTION

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

    THE PROPOSED FIBLOC SENSOR PROVIDES AN ECONOMIC MEANS TO PROTECT, LITERALLY, MILES OF A PREFERRED PERIMETER REGION AGAINST UNAUTHORIZED INTRUSIONS. THE OPTICAL FIBERS EMPLOYED INT HE FIBLOC SENSOR PROPAGATE CW OR PULSED INFRARED LIGHT SIGNALS WHOSE TRANSMISSION AND/OR REFLECTION SENSITIVITY IS AFFECTED BY MECHANICAL PRESSURE SUCH AS WOULD BE PRODUCED BY THE DISTENSION OF SURFACED MOUNTED FIBERS AL ...

  9. FIBER OPTIC GROUND MOTION SENSOR

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

    THE PHASE I EXPERIMENTAL EFFORT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF A FIELD WORTHY GROUND MOTION SENSOR TO REPLACE PIEZO-ELECTRIC ACCELEROMETERS FOR CONVENTIONAL EXPLOSIVES AND NUCLEAR TESTING. THE OUTPUT SIGNALS OF PIEZO-ELECTRIC ACCELEROMETERS MUST BE INTEGRATED TWICE TO DETERMINE GROUND MOTIONS. THIS PROCESS REDUCES SYSTEM ACCURACY AND MEASUREMENT BANDWIDTH. ADDITIONALLY, AS PIEZO-ELECTRIC SENS ...

  10. MILLIMETER WAVE ANTENNA

    SBC: Millitech Corp.            Topic: N/A

    MILLITECH PROPOSES TO DESIGN A COMPACT OFFSET CASSEGRAIN ANTENNA SYSTEM TO BE USED AT A WAVELENGTH OF 8 MM FOR CLOUD RESEARCH. THE SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED TO GIVE THE LOWSIDELOBE LEVELS CHARACTERISTIC OF AN OFFSET REFLECTOR WHILE GIVING POLARIZATION ISOLATION BETTER THAN 20 DB. THE TRADE-OFF BETWEEN HIGH POLARIZATION ISOLATION AND COMPACT SIZE WILL BE RESOLVED BY USING A GAUSSIAN OPTICS LENS ANTEN ...
