  1. Location and Yield of Nuclear Events Using Radionuclide Monitoring Data and Inverse Plume Modeling

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A worldwide network of radionuclide monitoring stations has been established to monitor radioactive fall-out from nuclear tests. These stations sample the air for radioactive particulates and Xenon on a daily basis. This project is to develop a softwaresystem to determine the location, timing, and yield of nuclear events and their corresponding estimation probabilities using the sampled data from ...

  3. Direct Electrochemical Biowarfare Sensor

    SBC: Fractal Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a prototype for direct electrochemical DNA sensor, using oligonucleotide-doped conductive polymer electrode. Phase I is dedicated to development and characterization of smallpox-specific DNA sensor. Stability, sensitivity,selectivity, reproducibility of DNA detection by the prototype electrode will be characterized with regards to both oligonucleotide- and double stranded DNA ...

  4. Large Area Neutron Counter Array

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    NOVA Scientific will demonstrate a large-area/low-cost neutron detection system having high detector quantum efficiency and high signal-to noise ratio. The approach utilizes an embedded neutron absorber in a solid state detector, utilizing known processingtechnology. The system detects fissionable materials by converting the neutron signal into a large electron pulse. The unit is light for field d ...

  6. Reflex Triode

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "Reflex triode bremsstrahlung sources potentially provide warm X-ray sources (20 keV to 500 keV), capable of generating high doses (~10 cal/g gold) over exposure areas of ~20 cm2. This needed capability allows experimental verification of warm X-ray inducedthermomechanical response, SGEMP, and box IEMP models for achieving component and system certification to hostile environments.In a reflex trio ...

  8. Diaphragm Pressure Gauge

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "Nuclear Weapons Effects Tests (NWET) frequently require that the test article be irradiated in an ultra-clean environment, making survivable shields a necessary part of many debris systems. Survivable shields as large as 12 inches in diameter are requiredbut have yet to be demonstrated in Plasma Radiating Source (PRS) environments. The loads on a survivable shield are a combination of radiation i ...

  9. Adiabatic Thermopile for Radiation Dosimetry

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "Measurements of fluence from a Plasma Radiation Source (PRS) are critical to the performance of accurate Nuclear Weapon Effects (NWE) experiments. Fast, total stopping calorimeters have been demonstrated to provide a robust, reusable, economic sensor forfluence measurements. However, the output of these sensors is a few millivolts and thus high signal to noise recording is difficult to achieve, ...

  10. Fuel Cells for Arms Control Applications

    SBC: VIATRONIX            Topic: N/A

    Future efforts to verify arms control agreements will require new technologies that are self-contained and man-portable. Potable power will, of course, be needed to energize and maintain this equipment in an unattended mode. Fuel cells offer the bestalternative for these power requirements, because of their high energy and power density. Unfortunately, there is no current fuel cell technology t ...
