The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. BIOSwimmer: In-Liquid Inspection System

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: HSB091007

    This project addresses a critical need in the nation`s infrastructure and border protection, inspection inside tanks on large ships in port. These missions must be performed in a timely, effective, and safe manner in challenging environments. The BIOSwimmer system is an end-to-end solution that includes sensing, post processing, control, and a biomimetic autonomous swimming vehicle that provides e ...

  2. Proof of Concept Demonstration of a Compact Accelerator

    SBC: Passport Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB072007

    Electron accelerators that produce high duty cycle electron beams with beam energies up to 9 MeV are essential for use in practical Nuclear Resonance Fluorescence and EZ-3DTM imaging technologies. While isotopic identification of shielded materials is now possible via these technologies, it is still necessary to achieve accelerator portability, compactness and reasonable cost of ownership to make ...

  4. New Neutron Detectors with Pulse Shape Discrimination

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB071009

    Proliferation of the weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat in the world today. Preventing the spread of nuclear weapons has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years, especially since the events on September 11, 2001 and its aftermath. One way to passively determine the presence of nuclear weapons is to detect and identify characteristic signatures of ...

  5. New Wide Bandgap Semiconductor Materials for Neutron Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 1012

    In the proposed program, we plan to investigate novel semiconductor neutron detectors based on the wide bandgap lithium containing compositions LiGaSe2, LiGaTe2, LiInS2, and LiInSe2. The goal of the program is to produce detector quality crystals and to demonstrate efficient thermal neutron detection, with the possibility of providing neutron gamma discrimination. We will examine the synthesis and ...

  6. New Scintillator for Neutron Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 1012

    Neutron detection is one of the methods used in revealing illicit nuclear materials. Currently, there is an ongoing search for new and better neutron detectors prompted by anticipated shortages of He-3 that is used in many of the current detection systems. This effort proposes and investigation and development of a new thermal neutron and gamma scintillator. The scintillator belongs to already pro ...

  7. Hand-held Neutron Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 111001

    Proliferation of the weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat. Prevention of their spread has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years. One of the ways to passively determine the presence of nuclear weapons is to detect and identify characteristic signatures of highly enriched uranium and weapons grade plutonium. Neutrons and gamma rays are two signature ...

  8. TlBr Detectors for Radiation Pagers

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB0151009

    RMD is proposing to construct a compact detector module for radiation pager applications utilizing a TlBr semiconductor device as the radiation sensitive element. Due to its excellent energy resolution, detection efficiency and low cost crystal growth method, a TlBr-based pager should greatly expand the capabilities and availability of these instruments. Various detector designs were evaluated dur ...

  9. Virtual Source Training Toolkit

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: HSB0161011

    Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a Virtual Source Training Toolkit that will reduce the cost of training personnel to detect and localize a radiological source. The toolkit will be able to simulate the response of a handheld radiation detector to a virtual source using a COTS smart device and Bluetooth beacon network. The toolkit will include easy-to-use interfaces to guide the ...
