  1. Botanicals as Chemical Warfare Agent Indicators

    SBC: BIOTRACES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "We developed a super-sensitive technique called Multi-Photon Detection (MPD). MPD has been used to improve the sensitivity of protein detection, including immunodiagnostics and proteomics. The development of MPD enabled methods for detecting a subattomole/ml amounts of proteins has been documented. The detection of the differentially displayed proteins, i.e. elucidation of promising set of the ...

  2. Development of Intergral Static Gas Filled/uv Filter Load for Plasma Radiation Simulators

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

    "The perturbation of the plasma density and current flow of an imploding gas puff load by the Rayleigh Taylor (R-T) instability is predicted to be the major impediment to using a long current pulse generator to produce x-rays for radiation simulationapplication. HY-Tech proposes a thin wall low Z cylinder to statically confine a gas puff load in the anode-cathode gap of a plasma radiation source ( ...

  3. Development of Time Resolved Technique to Infer 1-Dimensional Magnetic Field Distribution from Zeeman Broadened Lines

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

    "The magnetic field distribution in a current carrying plasma, such as Z-pinch, can be used to infer the currents flowing in the pinch and to study physical process such as the Rayleigh-Taylor (R-T) instability during the implosion phase. The currentcommutation process is particularly difficult to measure in nested array loads and in concentric magnetic flux compression experiments. Faraday rotati ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Agent Defeat Triad Polymer Technology for Enhanced HTI Counterforce Weaponry

    SBC: SOLUS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Solus INC. proposes development of a Triad of Agent Defeat Polymers, termed Triad Polymer Agent Defeat or TPAD, which are designed to be directly incorporated into the standard HTI titanium boride / perboric acid / hexachloroethane HTI explosive matrixutilized by the Weapons Directorate at Eglin AFB. The triad polymer complex consists of three novel proprietary families of polymers functioning op ...

  6. SNAPSHOT: A System for Predicting Human Physical Traits from Sample DNA

    SBC: PARABON NANOLABS, INC.            Topic: DTRA102007

    OBJECTIVE: Develop a Forensic DNA Analysis Kit for Genetic Intelligence that can be used on unknown human DNA samples collected from the battlefield to provide information about the individual who deposited the sample, such as potential ethnicity, height, eye color, hair color, age, sex, and/or facial features. The kit should leverage Short Tandem Repeats (STR), Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (S ...

  7. Numerical Model of Subsurface Transport of Noble Gases in Fractured Geologic Media for Detection and Identification of Subsurface Nuclear Explosion Te


    Surface detection of specific radioisotopes of the noble gases xenon and argon are essential for detection and discrimination of underground nuclear explosions. We propose a unique combination of numerical modeling and stable isotope release experiments to enhance the predictability of subsurface transport of the noble gases of interest. Our proposed research will identify and quantify the physi ...

  8. Automated pattern recognition methods to identify nuclear explosions

    SBC: Acorn Science & Innovation, Inc.            Topic: DTRA182005

    Reliable automated pattern recognition in the current system is limited by excessive noise and clutter combined with insufficient and/or ambiguous features. Our team consisting of AcornSI and Leidos thus propose a multi-step approach based on the combined effects of improved detection, feature extraction, phase identification, and global association.A key innovation here is creating a new classifi ...
