  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. 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. Reactive Coating Materials as Lethality Enhancers

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA05002

    In this SBIR Phase I/II effort, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) will develop and demonstrate a thin film coating technology that can serve as both lethality enhancers and as functional coatings for munitions. The goal of this project is twofold: 1) we will fabricate and characterize reactive thin films that rapidly release large quantities of thermal energy and 2) we will develop a te ...

  7. Low Cost Manufacturing Process for Sodium Iodide Detectors

    SBC: XL Sci Tech Inc            Topic: DTRA05014

    An unconventional, continuous, and flexible manufacturing process is proposed for the production of sodium iodide detectors. The steps of crystal growing and substantially simplified detector machining are integrated into one streamline process based on proven techniques with minimal capital investment. This new production process will drastically reduce the manufacturing cost. A leading commerc ...

  9. The development of a Single-Event upset immune, re-programmable and non-volatile field programmable gate array (r-NV-FPGA)

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: MDA03056

    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 and they are limited to one time programming; hence if program changes are subsequently required a backup or chip replacement is required. The lack of FPGA alternatives ...

  10. Thermobaric Explosives Modified to Emit Ultraviolet Radiation

    SBC: EXOTHERM CORP.            Topic: DTRA04012

    It is proposed to achieve partial conversion of the visible emission spectrum of burning aluminum into the ultraviolet range. This work is motivated by the search for effective means to defeat biological weapons by munitions employing ultraviolet germicidal radiation (UVGI). It is proposed that aluminized thermobaric formulations can be modified to deploy airborne particulates with nonlinear opt ...
