  1. Low-Energy Maskless Lithography to Mitigate Radiation Effects in Advanced Nanoscale Microelectronics

    SBC: Multibeam Corporation            Topic: DTRA112003

    The need for novel weapons to defeat urban targets and rapidly immobalize enemy combatants hiding in bunkers, caves, and basements requires new weapons and tactics. Thermobaric warheads can provide tailored blast response optimized for the defeat of these targets with low collateral damage. In this Phase I SBIR program, Powdermet will develop surface-coated metallic particles that can deliver tail ...

  2. Hierarchical, Layout-Aware, Radiation Effects Tools Vertically Integrated into an EDA Design Flow for Rad-Hard by Design

    SBC: Reliable MicroSystems, LLC            Topic: DTRA16A003

    The goal of this workis to establish a radiation-aware capability in a commercial EDA design flow that will enable first-pass success in radiation resiliency for DoD ASIC designs in much the same way that existing EDA design suites ensure first pass functionality and performance success of complex ASICs destined for commercial applications.Such an integrated capability does not presently exist.The ...

  3. Bioinformatics: Data Integration for Biomonitoring Applications

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: DTRA162002

    Aret Associates and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) propose an interdisciplinary effort to further develop and validate a robust, operational biomonitoring application that can process soil microbiome data to reliably detect episodic and low-level chronic contamination while maintaining low false alarm rate.The Phase II SBIR work will build upon the successful Phase I proof-of-concept demonst ...

  4. Solutions for Single-Event Effects in Ultra Deep Submicron Semiconductor Technologies Using Simulation and Layout Techniques

    SBC: ROBUST CHIP INC.            Topic: DTRA102008

    This project offers two powerful and efficient solutions to solve the mounting problems in design of radiation hard electronics: a range of ultra hard, high performance, sequential and combinatorial logic blocks based on the new, and enormously effective, LEAP RHBD layout methodology, and an accurate and efficient analysis, design, and simulation solution for single events. The Layout design ...

  5. DLeN: Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material

    SBC: Clostra, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162001

    Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (DLeN) applies the same deep learning techniques that allow computers to beat human performance in image recognition and the game of Go to detecting Special Nuclear Material. Spectral analysis and signal processing can in some cases be augmented by the use of much larger neural nets that conduct much deeper analysis of features of th ...

  6. Stochastic Consideration of Cased Munitions for Casing Breakup and Airblast

    SBC: Karagozian & Case, Inc.            Topic: DTRA102003

    The objective for the proposed effort is to develop a robust, effective, and deterministic/stochastic means to characterize blast effects from cased explosives pertaining to computing responses of structural components. This also includes creation of appropriate engineering aids/software/algorithms for transforming these blast effects into structural loads suitable for incorporation into high-fid ...

  7. Compact Laser Drivers for Photoconductive Semicond

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: DTRA16A004

    For effective protection against radiated threats, it is important to understand not only the physics of the threats, but also to quantify the effects they have on mission-critical electrical systems. Radiated vulnerability and susceptibility testing requires delivery of high peak power and peak electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments on large ...

  8. Advanced Solutions for Radiation Susceptibility Analysis & Prediction

    SBC: LUCID CIRCUIT, INC.            Topic: DTRA162006

    With the advent of high-density low-power sub-20nm technology processes and circuits with tens-of-billions of transistors, radiation-induced single-event effects present a new set of design challenges for terrestrial applications. Developing reliable single-event effect resilient microelectronics in these modern technology nodes is a resource and time-intensive endeavor that further requires valid ...

  9. PLASMA STRUCTURE IN LATER-TIME HANE PLASMAS- LABORATORY SIMULATION

    SBC: Jaycor, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    BECAUSE INTERNATION TREATIES PRECLUDE HIGH-ALTITUDE NUCLEAR TESTS, THERE IS LITTLE RELEVANT DATA FROM NUCLEAR BURSTS REGARDING THE SIZE AND DYNAMICS OF STRIATIONS IN NUCLEAR PLUMES OR EVEN THE BASIC PHYSICAL CONDITIONS WHICH PERMIT THE EVOLUTION OF STRIATIONS. THE UNDERSTANDING OF STRIATION BEHAVIOR IS IMPORTANT, AS STRIATIONS GENERATED WHEN THE IONOSPHERE IS DISTURBED BY NATURAL OR NONNUCLEAR MAN ...

  10. Advanced Fast Shutter for Debris Mitigation

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143007

    In an effort to development more robust optical system coatings DTRA, in collaboration with Sandia National Labs, is working to characterize the degradation of optical materials for space systems when exposed to high intensely EUV/ cold x-rays. The experiments utilizes the Double Eagle z-pinch facility which generates high current, high voltage arc pinch plasma to produce an intense EUV and cold x ...
