Fort Belvoir, VA (PRWEB) June 17, 2013
The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) will conduct its annual Basic Research Technical Review at the Waterford in Springfield, Virginia on July 22-25 and July 30-August 2. More than 300 grant awardees will present technical details on their counter weapons of mass destruction (WMD) research. Technical sessions will cover a broad range of counter WMD areas including: (1) Science of Sensing and Recognition; (2) Cognitive, Information and Network Science; (3) Science for Protection; (4) Science to Defeat WMD; and (5) Science to Secure WMDs.
Registration and detailed agendas are available at: http://www.dtrareviews.com/index.html. DTRA is actively looking for partners (government and industry) to transition their basic (6.1) research into applied (6.2) research programs. Government participation is highly encouraged at this review.
Specific topics to be reviewed include:
Radiation effects in microelectronics;
- Radiation failure mechanisms in robotic systems;
- Standoff and point detection;
- Nuclear forensics;
- Laser-driven intense x-ray sources;
