Abstract
The objective of this program is to develop a capability for a field deployable proton accelerator system that can generate high energy protons to neutralize concentrated masses of bio-agents held in steel storage drums. The Phase I research and development will involve conceptual design of a compact field deployable proton accelerator capable of delivering protons of energy >100 MeV, and studying the effect of energetic proton irradiation of bio-agents. Specifically, selected bio-agents will be irradiated at various proton energies, doses and flux rates and detailed toxicological investigations will be carried out. These data will be utilized to define the engineering requirements of a compact high energy proton accelerator.
