  1. Measuring Residual Concrete Strength After Penetration and Blast

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: DTRA07010

    During Phase I, IFOS demonstrated the feasibility of using embedded optical Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensor networks to measure resistance to penetration (for subsequent weapons) in concrete damaged by a weapon projectile. FBG sensors are well suited for monitoring dynamic strain in concrete structures due to their small size, low cost, ability to be embedded internally or surface mounted; and th ...

  2. The Characterization and Mitigation of Single Event Effects in Ultra-Deep Submicron (< 90nm) Microelectronics

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07005

    Orora Design Technologies proposes to develop electronic design automation (EDA) tools employing minimally invasive circuit design-based methods to mitigate single event effects (SEEs) for next generation Ultra-DSM CMOS (

  3. Cost-Effective Gas Flow Data Sensors

    SBC: Exquadrum, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08007

    Current high energy, multi-room test facilities operated in support of Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) efforts suffer from a lack of robust sensors that can provide a cost-effective approach to obtaining dynamic-pressure induced gas flow data during internal detonations events. Exquadrum, Inc proposes a new sensor package that utilizes existing piezoelectric sensor technologies, but incorp ...

  4. Bulk Composite Materials for Detection of Gamma Radiation

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: DTRA08005

    The objective of this proposal is to develop enabling technology for the production of bulk scintillating nanocomposites that have gamma radiation detection properties of single crystal NaI but with the manufacturability of plastic scintillators. These performance criteria may be met by developing nanoparticle polymer composites with ultra-high nanoparticle loadings. These ‘ultra-composites’ w ...

  5. Portable Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer for Nuclear Forensics

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA08004

    Analysis of nuclear material samples in the field has many advantages over laboratory analysis. Laboratory analyses can be slow, involve increased expense, lead to additional waste generation and disposal problems, and may introduce errors due to sample degradation or mishandling. In situ analysis mitigates all of these problems. The specific aim of this project is the development of a truly por ...

  6. High-Z Polymer Composites as a New Category of Gamma Scintillator Materials

    SBC: LC TECH            Topic: DTRA08002

    We propose a radically new approach to gamma scintillator materials based on high-Z polymer composites. These composites contain two key components molecularly dissolved in a polymer matrix that serves as the binder: (1) high-Z compounds for stopping high-energy gamma radiation; (2) luminescent conjugated polymers that functions as the scintillation activator. The molecular-level dissolution ensur ...

  7. Directed Mono-Energetic Gamma Source

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: DTRA08001

    For long-range detection of Special Nuclear Materials, an intense beam of mono-energetic directed gamma rays is required. In this proposal, a novel, high-energy, high peak- and average-brightness gamma-ray source based on Inverse Compton Scattering is described. Novel techniques are introduced to increase the flux of the source for active photonuclear interrogation at stand-off range. In Phase I, ...

  8. A fast pulsed, high flux directed neutron source for large stand off detection of special nuclear materials

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: DTRA08002

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes to develop a fast pulse, directed, fast neutron source to detect special nuclear materials at large stand off. Our source offers a

  9. ESTABLISH DESIGN CRITERIA FOR, AN OPTICAL PROBE TO MEASURE THE DUST LOFTED BY THE SHOCK WAVE DURING A NUCLEAR BLAST WAVE SIMULATION.

    SBC: DYNAMICS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ESTABLISH DESIGN CRITERIA FOR, AN OPTICAL PROBE TO MEASURE THE DUST LOFTED BY THE SHOCK WAVE DURING A NUCLEAR BLAST WAVE SIMULATION. DUST DENSITY IS DETERMINED FROM THE REDUCTION IN INTENSITY OF LIGHT PROJECTED OVER AN INTERROGATION PATH TRANSVERSE TO THE FLOW. USE OF A SIMPLE LIGHT SOURCE AND DETECTOR WITH FIBER OPTIC TRANSMISSION LINES PRODUCES AN INEXPENSIVE RUGGED INSTRUMENT WHICH CAN BE DEPLO ...

  10. DETERRENCE TO STRATEGIC DEFENSE

    SBC: Econ, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ADVANCE OF TECHNOLOGIES MAY MAKE DEFENSE AGAINST BALLISTIC MISSLES TECHNICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE. A NATIONAL POLICY DEBATE HAS BEGUN ON THE DESIRABILITY OF MAKING A TRANSITION FROM STRATEGIC DETERRANCE TO STRATEGIC DEFENSE. THE DEBATE IS AT PRESENT HIGHLY CONFUSING AND UNSTRUCTURED, SINCE THE VARIOUS ARGUMENTS FOR AND AGAINST THAT TRANSITION ARE BASED ON DIFFERING ASSUMPTIONS, OFTEN TA ...
