  1. Real-Time Frequency-Selective Fading Channel Realization Generator

    SBC: WELKIN SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: DTRA122020

    The proposed Complex Realization Generator (CReG) provides a real-time and software-based functional alternative to the Antenna-Complex Impulse Response Function (ACIRF) code. CReG generates fading channel realizations for the entire range of channel models represented by DTRA's Generalized Power Spectral Density (GPSD).

  2. Covert Optically-Reporting Threat-Functionalized Nanomaterials

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: DTRA122003

    To address the limitations of diagnostic equipment for chemical and biological warfare agent threats, Voxtel proposes to further develop low-cost, rapid biological-threat-reporting optical nanomaterials for a tag-track-and-locate system to consistsing of five components: 1) nanocrystal nanobeacons, a series of covert threat-functionalized optical identifiers with near-infrared through short-wave i ...

  3. Optically Covert Detection of Trace WMD Residues

    SBC: ASPEN MEDISYS, LLC            Topic: DTRA122003

    It is challenging to detect CBRN weapons production facilities that are hidden in residential and industrial neighborhoods. Once the weapons are manufactured, they will be sealed and removed from the site of production, so developing techniques to reveal the presence of the weapons will likely be fruitless. In this project, we will develop indicators that can be applied covertly around suspected w ...

  4. Reactive Structural Materials for Enhanced Blasts

    SBC: ASPEN MEDISYS, LLC            Topic: DTRA122008

    MATSYS proposes to develop reactive materials compositions and processing techniques for structural reactive composites for blast enhancement. This effort will combine our unique expertise in instrumented-Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) with new approaches in reactive materials design to develop a new generation of cost-efficient and highly reactive materials. The proposed material system will use a ...

  5. Stand-off Detection of Alternative Signatures of Radiation

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: DTRA122014

    Prevention of the smuggling of special nuclear materials (SNMs) and other radioactive material into the United States is a key national security objective. It is desirable to have a system capable of stand-off detection to monitor and rapidly alert the presence of covert nuclear materials. In Phase I, Tanner in collaboration with the University of New Mexico have established the method of inferrin ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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, ...

  8. 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 ...
