  1. A HIGH RANGE PARTICLE VELOCITY TRANSDUCER DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS AN ESTABLISHED NEED FOR A SIMPLE ROBUST TRANSDUCER TO MEASURE PARTICLE VELOCITY IN SEVERE BLAST AND SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS SUCH AS NUCLEAR AND HIGH EXPLOSIVE TESTS. A GAGE CONCEPT IS PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPMENT, BASED ON THE PROVEN MEASUREMENT PRINCIPLES USED IN THE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL DX GAGE, BUT RECONFIGURED MECHANICALLY AND ELECTRICALLY TO WITHSTAND THE HARSH SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS. THE CONCEPT RE ...

  2. A METHOD TO PROVIDE LOWER COST CRYSTAL PROPERTIES STUDY SAMPLES

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS NEED FOR CRYSTAL SAMPLES TO STUDY NEW LASER MATERIALS. CURRENT CRYSTAL GROWTH SYSTEMS ARE EXPENSIVE ANDHENCE THE EXPERIMENTER NORMALLY LIMITS THE TEST VARIABLES. THERE IS A CURRENT NEED TO EVALUATE HOLMIUM DOPED YAG FOR A MID I-R LASER. THIS PROGRAM REQUIRES TWELVE SAMPLES, WITH VARYING RATIOS OF ERIBIUM, THULIUM HOLMIUM AND CHROMIUM, THULIUM, HOLMIUM. THIS PROGRAM PROPOSES TO DEVELOP THE ...

  3. Accident Tolerant Reactor Shutdown for NTP Systems

    SBC: Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation            Topic: H202

    In brief, USNC's accident submersion safe drums are control drums where a small amount of fuel is added opposite to the neutron absorber and the drums impinge on the active core to substantially increase the shutdown criticality margin of the control drums. Phase 1 results indicate that the shutdown criticality margin is more than sufficient to maintain sub-criticality in the worst-case water sub ...

  7. AlphaBear2

    SBC: Spry Fox LLC            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    This project team will fully develop and test AlphaBear 2, a vocabulary learning game for grade 4 to 7 students. Vocabulary is a prerequisite for academic success, as it is linked to stronger performance across academic subjects and improved reading comprehension. It is more difficult for students to participate in educational activities without understanding the key vocabulary associated with tha ...

  10. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE DOWNHOLE SIGNAL CONDITIONING MODULE

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HIGH RANGE (200,000 G) ACCELEROMETERS ARE THE ONLY TRANSDUCERS THAT PROVIDE THE REQUIRED LONG-TERM DATA IN THE ENVIRONMENTS OF INTEREST TO THE BLAST AND SHOCK COMMUNITY. THESE GAGES HAVE A VERY LARGE DYNAMIC RANGE AND NOISE OFTEN MASKS THE LATE TIME (BUT EXTREMELY IMPORTANT) DATA. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A CLOSE COUPLED LOGARITHMIC GAIN SIGNAL CONDITIONING SYSTEM THAT WILL CORRECT THE LATE TIME NOIS ...
