  1. Functional Engineering of a Photosynthetic Desalination Pump Circuit

    SBC: Phytodetectors, Inc.            Topic: G

    Phytodetectors will design and engineer a synthetic biological pump circuit to increase the volume of water produced via photosynthetic desalination. This project builds off previous technology designed by Phytodetectors: a mangrove-inspired ultra-filter that allows plants to purify salt water as well as secrete water with properties comparable to bottled water. The partnership seeks to demonstrat ...

  2. Improved Identification of the function of Novel and Partially Occluded Laboratory Equipment

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: DTRA19B002

    This STTR Phase II project proposes development of a statistical relational learning framework for identification of the function of laboratory equipment from imagery. The proposed framework uses semantic reasoning to incorporate evidence from multiple classifiers and feature extractors, domain knowledge, and scene context for scene understanding and labeling. The Phase II effort will focus on dev ...

  3. Multimode Organic Scintillators for Neutron/Gamma Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA19B003

    There is significant interest in multi-functional materials enabling gamma-ray spectroscopy, neutron/gamma pulse shape discrimination (PSD), ultra-fast response, and time-of-flight (TOF) neutron detection. These materials would be used in a variety of mission scenarios for the localization and monitoring of special nuclear materials. Commercial inorganic scintillators may offer some of these chara ...

  4. Rugged Ultrafast Radiation Hard Scintillators for Nuclear Battlefield

    SBC: CapeSym, Inc            Topic: DTRA20B001

    Scintillator radiation detectors offer high sensitivity and relatively accurate radionuclide detection at a reasonable price. However, most of the available commercial scintillators have long decay times ranging from hundreds of nanoseconds to tens of microseconds. As a result, they have limited performance in high dose rate environments such as nuclear battlefields, robotic nuclear weapons test s ...

  5. Fast and Radiation Hard Scintillators for High Dose Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA20B001

    The event of nuclear explosion generates harsh radiation conditions, evaluation of which is critical in order to protect the military and civilian personnel from serious harm. Due to these harsh conditions only very simple methods of radiation assessment are employed, such as measurement of equivalent dose. Improvements to current instrumentation are sought that would provide energy resolved dose ...

  6. A Broadband and Compact Dual Comb Spectrometer for Precise Field Detection of Trace Elements and Chemicals

    SBC: OPTICSLAH, LLC            Topic: DTRA20B003

    There is a growing need to accurately characterize nuclear materials not only for nuclear safeguards and nonproliferation treaty verification but also for forensics and provenance. Presently, nuclear material identification requires samples to be collected and sent to laboratories for analysis using large and expensive equipment, such as inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometers (ICP-MS) or se ...

  7. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is crucial to detect proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions from radioactive isotopes, and (b) cost-effectiveness for deployment of sensor networks across large storage facil ...

  8. Epitaxial GaN on flexible metal tapes for low-cost transistor devices

    SBC: IBEAM MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 1

    GaN-based devices are the basis of a variety of modern electronics applications, especially in optoelectronics and high-frequency / high-power electronics. These devices are based on epitaxial films grown on single-crystal wafers. The single-crystal wafer substrates are limiting because of their size, expense, mechanical properties and availability. If one could make GaN-based devices over large a ...
