The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Environmental Pavement Monitor

    SBC: Advanced Design Consulting USA, Inc.            Topic: 07FH3

    With infrastructure costs escalating it is becoming essential to monitor the health of asphalt and concrete pavement so that timely maintenance can maximize their usefulness.  This SBIR will develop a sensor that can be embedded within concrete or asphalt, which can measure moisture, temperature, stress and strain.  It will provide critical data for evaluating pavement performance starti ...

  2. Safe Track Protection and Advance Warning System

    SBC: WAVETRONIX LLC            Topic: 082FH1

    To improve safety and efficiency on high-speed signalized intersections a dilemma zone protection system has been designed to automatically configure site-specific protection boundaries on both main-street approaches by continously tracking vehicles within up to 1000 feet of each stop line.  The system will further customize and refine protection by continously estimating the probability of a ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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, ...

  6. Standoff Detection of Nuclear Materials Using CNT-Based D2 Plasma Ion Source

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082004

    Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI) proposes to develop a novel neutron generator based on electron impact ionization from a carbon nanotube (CNT) electron source. Our proposed approach is aimed at providing significant advantages for man-portable or UAV deployment. It will provide significant advantages over existing neutron or gamma-ray sources in terms of size, weight and power efficiency without co ...

  9. Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects in High-Speed Compound Semiconductor Microelectronics

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA08003

    For ultra high-speed, ultra low-power applications in DoD space and weapons systems, devices and circuits fabricated from III–V semiconductor compounds offer significant advantages over silicon-based technology. However, the uncertainty in single-event-effect (SEE) response of compound semiconductor technologies forces the use of empirically-based hardening techniques with penalties in increased ...

  10. Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects in Quantum Dot Based Nanotechnologies

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA082001

    For applications in DoD satellite systems, devices based on novel nanomaterials offer significant advantages over traditional technologies in terms of light-weight and efficiency. Examples of such novel devices include quantum dot (QD) based solar cells, photodetectors, radars and sensors. However, the response of these devices to radiation effects is not well understood, and radiation effects mod ...
