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. Compact Unit for Eye-Safe Standoff Explosive Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A08055

    The goal of this work is to develop a novel Raman scattering spectrometer for advance standoff detection of IEDs and suicide bomber threats. When using the proposed instrument, we will obtain rapid, chemical-specific analysis at standoff distances of up to 30 m. This instrument will have significantly increased detection sensitivity, measurement accuracy and analysis rates compared to more conve ...

  2. Lidar-radar heterodyne receiver for underwater imaging applications

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N08032

    High spatial resolution, LIDAR images of underwater targets from air and submersed platforms are plagued by poor signal-to-noise ratios (SNR), arising from strong scattering in the turbid media of seawater. A hybrid system that combines the detection and coherent signal processing techniques of conventional RADAR with the optical propagation characteristics of LIDAR improves target detectability ...

  3. Portable High Resolution Imaging for NDI of Hot Section Aero Turbine Components

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N06T011

    New technology is needed for the nondestructive inspection (NDI) of defects in gas turbine engines. This is particularly true for components such as turbine blades with fretting fatigue defects that are difficult to detect and characterize with existing NDI equipment. The lack of detailed flaw detection and characterization raises safety concerns, hampers fleet readiness and negatively impacts the ...

  4. A Novel High Resolution Photon Counting Detector for X-Ray Inspections

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A08051

    Current state-of-the-art X-ray imaging detectors use energy integration, where the simple integration of X-ray events during the exposure period forms images. Unfortunately, such indiscriminate operation is sub-optimal for digital radiography or CT imaging because of its inability to reject scatter, thus reducing contrast in reconstructed images, and the detectors¡¦ limited resolution, which re ...

  5. Near-IR Enhanced CMOS Sensor for LADAR Imaging

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: MDA07032

    Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD), in collaboration with Harvard University and Raytheon, proposes to develop a silicon-based focal plane array with single-photon responsivity at 1064-nm, with the goal of creating next-generation LADAR receivers. This Phase I effort will demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed idea by improving the near-infrared (NIR) single photon efficiency of RMD’ ...

  6. Position Sensitive Microfluidic Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Microfluidic chips, fabricated from low cost polymers, are a promising, emerging technology for synthesis and study of new molecular imaging probes. These chips can contain a variety of microcircuitry and microwells and are capable of manipulating nanoliter samples of reagents and solvents. The microfluidic chips have been designed for a multitude of applicati ...

  7. Modular, High Precision, Digital Measurement System for Hypervelocity Projectiles

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: AF06300

    High flux flash X-ray systems provide unique methods of imaging ultra-fast events that cannot be captured using normal photographic techniques. X-ray images can be obtained in 20 to 50 nanoseconds, even through smoke, fire, and metal, and enable precise recording of details of test events under the harshest conditions. X-ray based techniques thus provide unique means to track hypervelocity proje ...

  8. Novel Parallax Free Sensor for Molecular Imaging

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 51

    With the ever-increasing number of human disease models, particularly models in smaller animals, high-resolution emission/transmission tomography techniques have become extremely important. The barriers to using existing modalities in studies of laboratory animals have traditionally been poor spatial resolu­tion, low sensitivity, and high cost. Although detector technologies have improved signi ...

  9. Improved Solid-State Neutron Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB071009

    The use and applications of radiological sources, for power, medical, and defense applications, continuously increases with time. Illicit nuclear materials represent a threat for the safety of the American citizens and the detection and interdiction of a nuclear weapon is a national problem that has not been yet solved. This represents an enormous challenge to current detection methods and monitor ...

  10. New Neutron Detectors with Pulse Shape Discrimination

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB071009

    Proliferation of the weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat in the world today. Preventing the spread of nuclear weapons has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years, especially since the events on September 11, 2001 and its aftermath. One way to passively determine the presence of nuclear weapons is to detect and identify characteristic signatures of ...
