  1. Lithography Cost Reduction for Rad Hard Integrated Circuits

    SBC: LumArray, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143008

    LumArray proposes in Phase I to demonstrate that its direct-write maskless-photolithography system, the ZP-150, is capable of performing aligned cuts in 1D-grids suitable for the 45 nm node, in addition to writing patterns of arbitrary geometry as required in custom ASICs and a wide range of other DoD and Aerospace applications. In Phase II LumArray will propose to make upgrades to its ZP-150 syst ...

  2. Ultrafast Scintillator for Dynamic Compression Studies

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA152002

    The NNSA-sponsored development of the Dynamic Compression Sector (DCS), at the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory, will permit real-time X-ray measurements (diffraction, imaging, scattering) in dynamically compressed materials, and enable understanding of the dynamics of materials response to intense shock waves, which heretofore has not been possible. Such studies are critical ...

  3. Fieldable Optical Sensors for Physically Characterizing High Energy Explosion Fireballs

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: DTRA152004

    Diagnostics and instrumentation is needed to evaluate the effectiveness of the next generation of technology to defeat chemical and biological weapons.This proposal addresses the need for instrumentation to quantify the spatial and temporal evolution of fundamental physical and chemical processes, such as temperature and species identification and concentration, pertinent to the pyrolytic destruct ...

  4. Integrated Multi-mode Handheld RIID

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA152007

    The project will develop a handheld instrument that detects, identifies, and categorizes radioactive sources based on gamma, thermal-, and fast-neutron signatures. Existing radioisotope identification devices (RIIDs) are typically biased toward gamma spectroscopy, and often use a simple, inefficient neutron counter. The recent development of Cs2LiYCl6:Ce (CLYC) has enabled neutron and gamma spectr ...

  5. Standoff Detector using Large-Volume Advanced Scintillation Materials

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA152008

    From 1993 to 2013, sixteen incidents involving highly enriched uranium associated with illegal activity has been reported to the IAEA.An implosion type of weapon would require roughly 25 kg of highly enriched uranium (HEU).One component in the layered defense against nuclear weapons is standoff detection of special nuclear materials, as HEU is material that can be easily deployed in a nuclear weap ...

  6. Situation Aware Network Deception Management (SANDMan)

    SBC: Boston Fusion Corp.            Topic: OSD153002

    Defending against state-of-the-art cyber attacks such as Advanced Persistent Threats requires the capability to counter the adversarys actions after they have already gained a foothold within our networks. Network deception techniques, working in conjunction with normal cyber defense methods, can alter the underlying attack process, making it more difficult, time consuming, and cost prohibitive fo ...

  7. System Architecture Recovery and Analysis (SARA)

    SBC: BlueRISC, Inc.            Topic: OSD153001

    BlueRISCs proposed solution takes the form of a binary-level toolkit that provides a fundamentally new approach to enable the extraction of a vulnerability-focused architectural model as well as an interactive security-focused visualization framework from an embedded software binary without any source-code knowledge.It is based on a conceptual framework that is able to identify and model external ...

  8. Joint Learning of Text-based Categories

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: DTRA152005

    STR proposes to build Categories via Context-Driven Dimensionality Reduction (C2D2R), a novel, highly efficient, and scalable information processing pipeline for joint learning of categories of entities and relations, and document topics.C2D2R operates in three stages: shallow pre-processing of text inputs, context-driven dimensionality reduction, and joint category inference and labeling. Our sys ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
