  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Integrated Human Engineering Toolset for Engineering of Complex Systems

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Alphatech proposes to develop an integrated human engineering toolset to support the effective design of complex human-machine systems. The toolset will be based around two central concepts: human-centered engineering and integrated tools. By human centered engineering we mean a system designed around human capabilities. By integrated tools, we mean a seamless set of software tools that can exchan ...

  5. Computer-based Tool for Information Flow Analysis of a Complex and Adaptive Theater Warfare System

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In complex command and control architectures, warfighters must clearly understand the impact of information flow on information management and decision-making processes. To cope with rapidly changing mission environments, complex, information-rich theater warfare systems must adapt their information structure (who should know what, and when) to survive and dominate the battlespace. The Informati ...

  6. ADAPTIVE WAVELETS FOR LOSS-LESS HYPERSPECTRAL COMPRESSION

    SBC: ATLANTIC AEROSPACE ELECTRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The penetration of hyperspectral sensing from either airborne or spaceborne platforms into both commercial and defense applications, has risen the need for efficient data transmission and storage. This efficiency can be provided by data compression technology that exhibits sufficient compression ratio at no or minimal loss of information and can perform the task in real or near real time. This P ...

  8. DETECTION OF MILITARY SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN EO/IR SENSOR DATA

    SBC: ATLANTIC AEROSPACE ELECTRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The ultimate goal of this multi-phase effort is to develop a semiautomated IMINT processing system for EO and/or IR sensor data that is based on object-level change detection (OLCD) concepts. The objective of the Phase I program is to demonstrate the feasibility of object level change detection in the context of substantial reduction in false alarms. Our approach to object level change detection ...

  9. Self-Cleaning Filter for Pretreatment of Seawater

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    Reverse Osmosis (RO) desalination plants provide fresh water for the Navy. However, occasional high concentrations of colloidal solids and plankton/small animal matter can virtually disable the RO system from operating. A lightweight self-cleaning filter is proposed for this RO application. Phase I develops a design and demonstrates the feasibility of the concept. Tests are planned that consid ...

  10. Rechargeable Polymer Electrolyte Batteries

    SBC: COVALENT ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Polymer electrolytes with significantly higher conductivity and stability than that of the present generation materials are needed to develop batteries for the individual soldier. To this end, Covalent Associates will develop single ion-conducting polymer electrolytes from enzyme catalyzed reactions of aromatic monomers with the carboxylic, phenolic or sulfonic functional groups. The unique stru ...
