  1. Low Voltage Radiation Hardened Optoelectronics for Optical Interconnects

    SBC: QUANTTERA LLC            Topic: DTRA152001

    The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) recognizes the need for low-power high-bandwidth radiation-hard optical interconnects to process more data more quickly and to replace electronic data.Our companys core development in optical communications with semiconductor materials is a unique fit for DTRAs low-power consumption high-bandwidth radiation-hard intra-chip communication components for sat ...

  2. Low-Cost Sensing Array for Infrasound

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA172001

    Infrasound and seismic measurements are used by DTRA and the DoD for nuclear test monitoring, terrorist blast forensics, battle damage assessment, and environmental monitoring. However, these long wavelength physical signals are typically recorded through single-point sensors or sparse low density arrays. As a result, the critical signals of interest are often corrupted or masked by noise or inter ...

  3. A Robust, Machine Independent, Software Toolkit for Topology Aware Process Mapping on Distributed Memory HPC Architectures

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: DTRA172002

    A significant performance gap exists between the theoretical number of Floating Point Operations (FLOPS) that a HPC machine is capable of sustaining and the number of FLOPS realized by real-world HPC applications. One of the principle reasons for this gap is the parasitic work that computational processes must do to communicate with one another. It has been shown that this communication work can b ...

  4. 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 (

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. A Single Event Upset Immune Re-Programmable FPGA Utilizing a Commercial Architecture

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA03005

    Radiation tolerant Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA's) have gained wide and rapid acceptance by military and aerospace equipment suppliers; however, there are presently a limited number of chip-sets available for production. The lack of FPGA alternatives severely limits the range of available functions and applications that would greatly benefit from increased performance with radiation hardn ...

  8. CeMnO3 1T Bipolar Memory

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Bipolar Junction Transistors (BJT) are used for power and mixed signal applications in radiation environments. Current BJT devices perform with volatile operation requiring constant power supply for uninterrupted access. We propose to create a nonvolatileBJT memoy device using proprietary SMI cerium based ferroelctric mterial (patent pending) prodced by Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOC ...
