  1. Characterization of mesoscale weather prediction errors for dispersion modeling

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: DTRA04003

    DTRA uses high-resolution mesoscale forecasts to drive HPAC, the DTRA dispersion modeling tool that generates critical forecasts of dosage resulting from releases of chemical, biological, or radiological agents. HPAC is designed to provide probablistic information based on estimates of the uncertainty of the input forecast fields of the meteorological variables (wind, temperature, etc.). ...

  2. Advanced nanocomposite scintillator for gamma radiation detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: DTRA08005

    Gamma radiation detection has traditionally required single crystal materials that are difficult to produce consistently on an industrial scale. Agiltron has developed a new class of scintillator materials based on composites containing nanoparticles. These so-called nanocomposites exhibit radiation detection characteristics superior to currently available single crystal scintillators. In Phase I ...

  3. Multi-resolution Terrain elevation Estimation

    SBC: Alaphatech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Alphatech will develop & demo multirsolution statistical methods for the fusion of terrain elevation from existing 3-D terrain models and new elevation data. This fusion will produce new estimates of terrain elevation with accuracies, robustness, and update ratesprviously unachievable.

  4. Low-cost Individual Digital Dosimeters using Solid State Photomultipliers

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05007

    U.S. forces working in low-level radiation environments have unsatisfactory choices for monitoring radiation exposure. The currently available A/UDR-13 pocket dosimeter is able to meet sensitivity requirements, but is cost prohibitive at ~$400 per unit, and it fails in the high temperature environments faced our military. Careful monitoring and accurate reporting of the exposed dose will reduce t ...

  5. High Resolution, Room Temperature Semiconductor Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05006

    Proliferation of the weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat in the world today. Prevention of 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. Gamma ray spectrometers are an important tool in checking the proliferation of the nuclear weapons. Important re ...

  6. A Novel Cost Effective Method for Growing High Performance Radiation Sensors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082007

    Certain lanthanide halides have significantly higher light output than NaI:Tl, the comparison standard for scintillators, plus other important properties, including fast decay times and excellent proportionality. Unfortunately, lanthanide halides grown by traditional melt processes have high production costs and limited availability. Crystals are usually limited to about 5x5 cm2, right cylinder, ...

  7. A Near-Source Model for Chemically Reacting Radionuclides

    SBC: BLAZETECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a near-source model for the release of chemically reacting radionuclides. The model structure is based on an available code for reacting chemicals. The model will include interactive effects of nuclear transformation, chemical reaction, and plume physical motion. Such a model will provide fast and accurate predictions for the source characterization and transport of radion ...

  8. Non-Energetic Payload Technologies

    SBC: BLAZETECH CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA05011

    Conventional weapons rely on blast and fragmentation as the primary defeat mechanism, whereas non-energetic payloads rely on other means to defeat the target. Non-energetic weapons may defeat targets by the dispersion of aerosols (solid or liquid) or gases to interact with critical target elements. The objective is to cause some combination of denial, disruption, degradation, or destruction witho ...

  10. CONTOURING THE OXYGEN ION ENERGY TO OBTAIN IMPROVED SIMOX MATERIAL

    SBC: IBIS TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF FORMING IMPROVED SIMOX MATERIAL BY CONTOURING THE ENERGY OF THE INCIDENT OXYGEN IONS. DURING THE IMPLANTATION PROCESS OF SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF SUBSTRATE MATERIAL IS REMOVED BY SPUTTERING. ALTHOUGH THE RANGE R(P) OF INCIDENT IONS REMAINS CONSTANT, TO FIRST ORDER, DURING THE IMPLANT, THE SPUTTERING AWAY OF THE SURFACE CAUSES INCIDENT IONS TO COME ...
