  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. Automated Communications Analysis System

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Synthetic environment exercises are a critical component in the DOD's strategy for testing CONOPS, training soldiers, and evaluating equipment. Communication is a vital component of these exercises, and communications data is a valuable information sourcefor AAR facilitation. However, communications analysis requires time-consuming transcription and processing.Technologies are being developed to ...

  5. Instructional System for Enhancing Seakeeping Cognitive Readiness and Decision-Making Skills

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Planing hull craft pose unique safety challenges. The Mark V Special Operations Craft, for instance, carries Special Operations Forces in littoral waters and travels at very high speeds. Failure to adequately negotiate wave conditions may result ininjury to the crew and damage to the craft. The requisite seakeeping skills, however, are difficult to master. What is needed is a comprehensive ins ...

  6. Design and Validation of Simulation-based Training for Emergency First Responders

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Simulation-based training is a promising instructional tool for training first responder military and civilian emergency personnel but its growth and adoption into practical use in training programs has been significantly hindered by the lack ofvalidation. We will address this challenge through two interrelated objectives. We will design a validated training program for first responders that us ...

  7. Warrior Readiness for Coalition and Collaborative Teams

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The focus of this proposal is to develop a system that is responsive to the needs of military leaders in developing and maintaining high performance, multinational teams. In Phase I we will define requirements for a scenario-based assessment and trainingsystem. The system will be derived from a training needs assessment specifically intended to identify competencies for multinational teams. Ba ...

  8. Structured electrolytes for lighweight fuel cells

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    "Compact and lightweight power sources are needed for communication, computation and sensors. There are no solid proton conductors that work satisfactorily between 200 and 500¿C. This is a most important and desirable range of operating temperatures forsmall and scalable fuel cells. This research explores the feasibility of developing structured solid-state proton conductors that operate effi ...

  9. Automated Link Analysis for Data-mining of Distributed INformation (ALADDIN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "We propose to develop a system for Automated Link Analysis for Data-mining of Distributed INformation (ALADDIN) to detect bioterrorist attacks. ALADDIN will use ontology-based data modeling for integrating heterogeneous and distributed data sources ofbioterrorism information. In addition to traditional sources such as hospital and ambulatory-care records, ALADDIN will incorporate data from other ...

  10. Probabilistic Unit Life Status Estimation (PULSE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The Warfighter Physiological Status Monitoring (WPSM) system must deal with artifact-laden, uncertain, and dynamic biomedical sensor data. We propose to address these critical issues directly with the development of the Probabilistic Unit Life StatusEstimation (PULSE) suite of advanced Bayesian Belief Network (BBN) algorithms. BBNs provide probabilistic reasoning for dealing with uncertainty, and ...
