  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. Scalable Single- and Multi-"Boule"Bulk GaN Substrate HVPE Production Tool

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA122001

    GaN-based devices are currently grown on foreign substrates such as SiC and Al2O3, due to the lack of high quality GaN substrates. It is well known that the use of foreign substrates limits device performance due to a high dislocation density in the GaN film. Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) has developed a hybrid HVPE approach to grow high quality GaN device films. In this SBIR proj ...

  5. A Portable Laser Device for Remote Filler Identification

    SBC: AAC International            Topic: DTRA122012

    The proposed SBIR research (Phase I and II) is devoted to developing a laser-based acousto-ultrasonic system for inspection of sealed containers. The system represents a promising technology for improving safety management in anti-terrorism and treaty compliance operations. The system will use a pulsed laser to excite the container and a laser Doppler vibrometer for long stand-off vibratory (ult ...

  6. 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 (

  7. 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 ...
