  1. Integrated Multi-mode Handheld RIID

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA152007

    The goal of the project is to 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; some instruments may use an additional inefficient neutron counter in form of a He-3 tube. The recent development of mat ...

  2. Tools for Memory Hierarchy Optimization on Pre-Exascale HPC Architectures

    SBC: Ep Analytics, Inc            Topic: DTRA172003

    DTRA uses High Fidelity Computer Codes (HFCC) to investigate weapon effects and techniques for countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). End-to-end HFCC simulations in support of the DTRA Agent Defeat Warfighter Capability will require calculations including multiple phenomena that occur in vastly different time scales (-sec to hours). As DTRA becomes increasingly reliant on computational mode ...

  3. Additive Manufacturing of All Solid-State Batteries with Novel Electrode Architectures

    SBC: STORAGENERGY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA172005

    Supercapacitors have attracted considerable recent attentions due to their high-power density, and long cycle life. Unfortunately, the energy density of supercapacitors is too low to meet these applications requiring an energy supply for longer periods (hours or days). Storagenergy Technologies Inc. proposes to develop a superior all solid-state battery (ASSB) fabricated by additive manufacturing ...

  4. Non-Saturating, Real-Time Battlefield Dosimeter

    SBC: Spectral Labs Incorporated            Topic: DTRA172007

    Spectral Labs proposes the development of a radiation dosimeter capable of accurately measuring both prompt and residual gamma and neutron particles without saturating at the dose rates expected from a nuclear event. The proposed dosimeter will be capable of live readout but will typically operate in a low power sleep state for extended battery life, and the dosimeter will utilize a well-tested ci ...

  5. Isotope Nuclear Forensics from Optical Real-time Measurements (INFORM)

    SBC: Applied Spectra, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172008

    The SBIR Phase I effort will demonstrate the performance of an Atmospheric Pressure Glow Discharge (APGD) excitation/ionization source with Laser Ablation (LA) sampling and Optical Emission Spectroscopy (OES) for rapid field elemental and isotopic analysis of surrogate nuclear debris samples. Laser sampling mitigates the need for sample preparation or consumables. The APGD will be tested as an ato ...

  6. Field-Expedient Nuclear Isotope Characterization Spectrometer

    SBC: Hedgefog Research Inc.            Topic: DTRA172008

    To address the DTRA's need for a field deployable mass spectrometer for nuclear forensic analysis (NFA), Hedgefog Research Inc. (HFR) proposes to develop a new Field-Expedient Nuclear Isotope Characterization Spectrometer (FENICS), based on species-specific ionization and novel signal enhancement schemes. New system features in FENICS will enable rapid, on-site characterization of nuclear debris s ...

  7. Optimizing Power Availability and Sustainability in Islanded Sites

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA152006

    To address the DTRA need for enhanced island-mode operation and strategies for defense critical infrastructure (DCI) in the event of commercial power grid loss or disruption due to an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) or high-power microwaves (HPMs), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) has developed an Optimizing power Availability and Sustainability in Islanded Sites (OASIS) methodology. This solution is ...

  8. Thermal and Fast Neutron Multiplicity Counter

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162007

    Neutron multiplicity can provide effective detection and identification of shielded Special Nuclear Materials based on analysis of the time correlated neutron multiplicity distribution. RMD is developing two key materials for such applications: Cs2LiYCl6:Ce (CLYC) scintillator and dual-mode plastics.CLYC offers efficient thermal neutron detection and excellent separation between gamma and neutron ...

  9. DLeN: Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material

    SBC: CLOSTRA, INC.            Topic: DTRA162001

    Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (DLeN) applies the same deep learning techniques that allow computers to beat human performance in image recognition and the game of Go to detecting Special Nuclear Material. Spectral analysis and signal processing can in some cases be augmented by the use of much larger neural nets that conduct much deeper analysis of features of th ...

  10. Prediction of Emergent SCIENce and Technology (PRESCIENT)

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: DTRA162005

    We propose to develop Prediction of Emergent SCIENce & Technology (PRESCIENT), a system that mines a text corpus of scientific patents and publications to discover emerging technologies that may impact WMD or CWMD. PRESCIENT will take as input patents and
