  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 ...

  2. Development of a High Fidelity PC Based Simulator for Modeling the Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion of Nuclear, Chemical, Biological, and Radiolog

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A simulation tool is proposed to model and simulate the wind fields, turbulence fields, and the unsteady dispersion of NCBR substances in urban areas on the building to city blocks scale. This Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)-based approach has beenshown to accurately simulate the urban wind and turbulence fields with minimal approximations, and has been demonstrated by modeling the flow fields ...

  3. Integrated Protein/Nucleic Acid Microarray CB Detector

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the proposed program is to develop a portable, low-cost, label-free (reagentless), microarray system capable of near real-time simultaneous detection and identification of multiple analytes (bacteria, viruses, spores, toxins) with highsensitivity and low false alarm rate. Notably, the system will be capable of detection/identification of agents on the basis of protein and/or nucl ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Heterdyne Interferometer for Triggering Gas Puff PRSs

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Large X-ray generators using gas fill loads are a key element in the DTRA simulator program. Consistent relative timing between the injection of the gas shell and the generator current pulse is crucial to producing consistent, high-yield x-ray pulses.To that end HY-Tech proposes replacing existing high voltage trigger pin technology, with a sensitive, all fiber-optic heterodyne interferometer ba ...

  6. Large Area Neutron Counter Array


    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 ...

  10. Cooperative RF-Trail Based closed, confined, and constrained Environment Navigation System

    SBC: PRIXARC, LLC            Topic: DTRA182002

    Small multirotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are well suited for sensing and situational awareness missions in closed, confined, and constrained (C3) environments. However, autonomous navigation of small VTOL UAVs is very challenging in C3 environments. Current state of the art navigation methods uses vision and LIDAR to build a map, localize, and plan paths.These methods tend to be computatio ...
