  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. Location and Yield of Nuclear Events Using Radionuclide Monitoring Data and Inverse Plume Modeling

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A worldwide network of radionuclide monitoring stations has been established to monitor radioactive fall-out from nuclear tests. These stations sample the air for radioactive particulates and Xenon on a daily basis. This project is to develop a softwaresystem to determine the location, timing, and yield of nuclear events and their corresponding estimation probabilities using the sampled data from ...

  6. A Model-Based Index of Cognitive Fightability for Warrior Systems

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Current methods to assess system effectiveness often require the development of prototype systems and costly evaluation studies. Several heuristic approaches exist to support technology selection and implementation services, however a scientifically-basedprocess is needed that will consider the functionality that new technology provides, the missions that these systems will be applied to, and the ...

  7. AutoCAS: Automated Communications Analysis System for use in Military Synthetic Environment Exercises

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Effective communications are essential in military operations in urban terrain (MOUT). Leaders must coordinate distributed squads of soldiers in hostile, urban battlegrounds through communication. However, though verbal communications are easy to capture,it traditionally takes days or weeks to analyze and assess this valuable data. Thus, communications analysis has become the province of research ...

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

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Planing hull craft used for high-speed operations in littoral waters pose numerous safety challenges. Failure to adequately negotiate wave conditions may result in injury to the crew and damage to the craft. Our primary goal for this project is to designa comprehensive instructional system that will materially improve boat-handling safety by teaching strategies that can significantly mitigate sh ...

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

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Simulation-based training is a promising instructional approach for training military and civilian first responders. In addition to training in relevant taskwork skills, there is a need for first responder training in cognitively-based skills such assituation assessment and decision making. We are addressing this need by the development of FIRST, a validated training program for first responders ...

  10. Warrior Readiness for Coalition and Collaborative Teams

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The focus of this proposal is to develop a leadership training system that facilitates the development and maintenance of high performance in multi-cultural teams. Specifically, the goal of this effort is to develop a scenario-based assessment andtraining system that can be implemented through a web network or standalone PC - the Functional Learning Levers Team Leader Toolkit (the FuLL TiLT). Fo ...
