  1. Development of a 3/6/9 MeV X-ray Generator

    SBC: Accuray Incorporated            Topic: 0911

    Accuray bases this proposal on an X-ray generator, model DX500K, designed, built, and delivered to a major contractor in December 2008 as part of the DNDO-CAARS program. Accuray`s DX500K operates at single or dual energy modes of 6 MeV and 9 MeV and interleaves between 6 MeV and 9 MeV at 400 Hz. The pulse to pulse jitter is negligible -- a major performance factor in high Z detection. The system o ...

  2. Low-cost and Rapid DNA Sequence for Biometric Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED LIQUID LOGIC            Topic: HSB091001

    Advanced Liquid Logic proposes to develop a low-cost and rapid biometric system based on DNA. Using a miniaturized DNA sequencing format the device will enable DNA-based identification of individuals as well as determination of family relationships (kinship) between individuals. The system will be implemented using Advanced Liquid Logic`s proprietary Digital Microfluidics technology, which is base ...

  3. 3WEAVE Fabric/Composite Panels for Blast Protection

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: HSB082001

      Based on the results of the Phase I project, it was shown that 3TEX`s unitary 3D woven E-Glass billet reinforced composite panels have excellent potential to be used as blast mitigating material for protecting buildings. Fibers and resins used in the Phase I were selected with affordability and fire resistance as the major considerations. In the Phase II effort proposed, the same fiber and ...

  5. Generation of bivalent aptamers with high affinity and selectivity for detection of viruses and bacteria from environmental samples

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB091003

      Better methodologies for the rapid detection of pathogenic bacteria and viruses are needed. A particular problem with current antibody-based assays is cross-reactivity with similar, but harmless, species. Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. proposes developing nucleic acid-based affinity reagents (aptamers) against botulinum neurotoxin, as well as against a model pathogenic virus (VSV) and ...

  6. Semiconductor Neutron Detectors

    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 LiMgP LiMgAs and LiZnP. 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 purification o ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Low Cost, Large Volume 3He Replacement Neutron Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 1012

    Nuclear instrumentation for the detection of thermal neutrons relies heavily upon 3He because of its desirable nuclear properties and physical characteristics. The decline in production combined with increased demand has depleted the 3He stockpile and the supply of 3He is presently insufficient for US needs. The proposed effort seeks to address this problem by developing detector technology to hel ...

  10. Use of X-ray Backscatter Imaging to Screen General Aviation Aircraft

    SBC: American Science and Engineering, Inc.            Topic: HSB092001

    In this Phase II effort, American Science & Engineering, Inc. (AS&E) will design, fabricate, test and deliver a mobile X-ray Backscatter one-sided imaging system suitable for examining general aviation aircraft for the presence of weapons, contraband or other proscribed items. The system employs a high resolution X-ray Backscatter imaging module mounted on an omni-directional host platform ...
