Test Methodology and Equipment for Radiation Hardened Interceptors
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
ASI, teamed with GH Systems, proposes to integrate the comprehensive material and component database, RadCatT, with 3-D modeling, radiation transport, and electrodynamics software to provide a knowledge-based test environment simulation and test planning toolkit to support MDA rad-hard test programs. The proposed product, called the Radiation Test Environment Simulation Toolkit (RadTEST), will introduce a cost-saving paradigm shift in the way radiation hardness design, testing, and reporting are conducted. RadTEST will also: Provide a web-based software toolkit for evaluating the radiation tolerance of critical systems. Create cost-saving test support methodology for MDA's missile defense programs Develop a collaborative engineering environment with software interfaces for: - Access to RadCatT Parts and Materials Database - Interface with Radiation Transport Codes - Comparing Test Facilities with a catalog of Radiation Spectra - Generating an Electronic Test Plan - Generating an Electronic Test Report Interface 1-D and 3-D Computer Aided Design (CAD) Models with multidisciplinary engineering-grade simulations and physical science models, to include electrodynamics applications for EMP analysis. Create 3-D models of test chamber and test environments for clear comparisons between model predictions and test results. Provide a standardized electronic framework for the evaluation of radiation hardened components.
