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. Low cost fieldable gamma-ray spectrometer

    SBC: Novawave Technologies            Topic: DTRA082007

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I proposal seeks to develop a low-cost, compact, and rugged gamma-ray spectrometer that could be deployed in large numbers to provide enhanced security from radiological threats. The proposed approach is based on readily available components that are used in conjunction with proprietary designs and electronics to provide unmatched capabilities. The P ...

  2. Range-Improving, Mid-IR Time Domain Spectroscopic Transceiver for SNM

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA082004

    To address the DTRA need for standoff detection and identification of special nuclear materials (SNM), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Mid-IR Time Domain Spectroscopic Transceiver (MI-TDST) system. The proposed MI-TDST device operation is based on capturing the characteristic signature of molecules in the environment surrounding SNM. Decomposition of these molecules (id ...

  3. Engineering Models for Damage to Structural Components Subjected to Internal Blast Loading

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: DTRA08006

    Algorithms are needed for fast-running engineering models that predict damage levels of structural members subject to the blast environment from high explosives detonated inside a building (i.e., internal explosions). These algorithms will be used as part of vulnerability analyses that quickly assess building blast damage from internal explosion scenarios associated with terrorist threats, mission ...

  4. Directed Mono-Energetic Gamma Source

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: DTRA08001

    For long-range active interrogation of Special Nuclear Materials, an intense beam of mono-energetic directed gamma rays is required. In Phase I of this project, RadiaBeam developed the design for such a source, based on Inverse Compton Scattering (ICS), and determined its feasibility. The key innovation in our source is a novel Interaction Region system design, which significantly increases the av ...

  5. Engineered Substrates for “Zero-Penalty” Radiation Hardening of Ultra Deep Submicron Commercial Processes

    SBC: RADIATION ASSURED DEVICES, INC.            Topic: DTRA08003

    In this proposed Phase II program we will build on the successful Phase I program where we for the first time implemented engineered epitaxial layers based on nanostructure technology that were used to harden commercial silicon devices against radiation by minimizing collected photocurrents (electron-hole pairs) via recombination centers where we demonstrated that improved radiation hardness could ...

  6. The Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects on Nano-technology Microelectronics

    SBC: ROBUST CHIP INC.            Topic: DTRA082001

    Robust Chip Inc. (RCI) and Stanford University (Stanford) propose a project with two main parts: 1. Exploration and development of a combined layout and circuit design methodology for complete protections against both single and multiple single event errors with a minimal circuit and layout overhead. 2. Extension of a unique, combined circuit-substrate, modeling technique for radhard design in ult ...

  7. Bulk Composite Materials for Detection of Gamma Radiation

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: DTRA08005

    The objective of this proposal is to develop enabling technologies for the production of bulk scintillating nanocomposites that have the gamma radiation detection properties of single crystal NaI but with the manufacturability of plastic scintillators. These performance criteria may be met by developing nanoparticle polymer composites with ultra-high nanoparticle loadings levels in matrix with a h ...

  8. Autonomous Airborne Chemical/Biological Cloud Detection Sensor

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082011

    Detection of chemical and biological warfare agents in a real-world setting is an increasingly urgent problem. Many of the current state-of-the-art sensors are aqueous based and require large biomolecules, such as antibodies, to achieve binding of the target molecule and subsequent reporting of the binding event. These technical hurdles are a drawback when considering deployment of these technol ...

  9. Engineering Models for Damage to Structural Components Subjected to Internal Blast Loading

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08006

    Weidlinger Associates Inc. proposes to develop effective technology for simulating explosive detonations within civil buildings where the propagation of airblast and failure of weak internal walls are strongly coupled. We will conduct a field test program designed to complement other internal detonation testing efforts such as DTRA''s Distinct Cobra, expanding the available database. We will perfo ...

  10. High Fidelity Modeling of Building Collapse with Realistic Visualization of Resulting Damage and Debris

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082005

    An approach for performing high fidelity modeling for blast and progressive collapse simulations of buildings will be developed. The modeling approach will allow complete simulations of building response to be performed within several days of computing time on desktop PCs. An 'easy to use' modeling interface will also be demonstrated in this effort. All response regimes will be addressed includi ...
