  2. Large Format High Frame Rate X-ray Direct Detection With In-Pixel Analog Frame Storage

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: DTRA152002

    Coupling high intensity and high flux x-ray capabilities with impact drivers (lasers, gas guns, etc.) provide opportunity for directly probing material deformation mechanisms under extreme loading conditions. Limitations in existing x-ray detection capabilities prevent complete mapping of the temporal evolution of dynamic material events under fast loading rates. X-ray energy detection > 20 keV is ...

  4. Multi-mode Handheld Radioisotope Identification Instrument

    SBC: Merrill Corporation            Topic: DTRA152007

    Radioisotopes can be identified by the emission of neutrons & gammas having characteristic energies.Most hand-held radioisotope identification instruments, however, are gamma-ray centered designs that optionally include neutron detectors of limited sensitivity. Passive measurements of gamma-ray signatures can easily be compromised by shielding a source. Photogenics has developed a neutron spectrom ...

  9. Electrokinetic-based Microfluidic Universal Sample-Preparation (EMUS) Platform

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA092002

    Sample preparation has been recognized as the single most important challenge to be faced in the development of detect-to-warn (DTW) systems. Available commercial sample preparation technologies are expensive, slow, and require trained laboratory technicians and sophisticated laboratory equipment for operation. Addressing this need, we propose to design, fabricate, and demonstrate a general purpos ...

  10. Next Generation Blast Simulation

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: DTRA092015

    With the current state of world events, the threat of explosives used against high-value targets is more pronounced than ever before. As a result, simulation of blast events and their effects on structures has become an increasingly vital capability. Current blast simulations on Central Processing Units (CPU) resources require a significant amount of computational time, limiting their overall valu ...
