  4. 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 5 cm x 5 cm, right cylinde ...

  5. Systems- Agent Design Environment (Sys-ADE)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: DTRA101001

    Irregular warfare emphasizes humanitarian efforts as part of “winning the hearts and minds.” Unfortunately, non-government organizations (NGOs) that work on humanitarian efforts tend to be non-technical or not prepared to merge with military standards. The result is inefficient operations and ineffective humanitarian actions. 21st Century Systems, Incorporated is pleased to introduce a Softwar ...

  7. Next Generation Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Codes

    SBC: APPLIED SIMULATIONS, INC.            Topic: DTRA092015

    Accurate blast simulations based on first-principles, 3-D hydro-codes require hours on notebook PCs. Graphical processing units (GPUs) offer the potential of drastic reductions in run-times. Typical computational fluid dynamics codes perform of the order of 10-100 operations per memory fetch and store. In order to harness the potential of graphical processing units (GPUs), near-perfect streaming ( ...

  8. Electromagnetically-Stirred THM Process for Growth of CZT

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: DTRA092007

    It is proposed to develop a novel process for growth of high quality CZT crystals for nuclear detection applications. Currently the THM process is the technology of choice for production of high quality CZT crystals. This process, however, suffers from extremely low growth rates. The development effort proposed here will seek to increase the crystal growth rate by 5-10 times the current levels ...

  9. Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects in Nonplanar Nano-technology Microelectronics

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA092001

    Future high-performance integrated circuits in DoD satellite systems will require non-planar nano-technology devices, such as MultiGate Field Effect Transistors (MuGFET) or FinFET, which can decrease pattern area of logic circuits below 50% of the conventional planar technologies. The International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors predicts that such devices will be the cornerstone of sub-32nm ...

  10. An Integrated, Electrokinetics-Augmented Microfluidic Device for Forensic DNA Analysis

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA092003

    The use of WMDs and IEDs by covert insurgents and terrorists poses a significant risk to U.S. military forces and civilians. The capability to execute rapid forensic DNA analysis to identify individuals who manufactured and transported these threatening devices is of paramount importance to military mission, homeland security and civilian safety. Current DNA forensic analyses are time-consuming, b ...
