  1. Memory Instrumentation and Performance Simulation (MIPS)

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172003

    Next-generation high-performance computing (HPC) hardware, such as the Intel Xeon Phi Knights Landing Many-Integrated-Core processor, provide new deep memory architectures that offer the promise of increased performance. The challenge in taking full advantage of this architecture is selecting which data structures will be placed in the high-bandwidth memory. Optimizing data structure placement in ...

  2. Tools for Memory Hierarchy Optimization on Pre-Exascale HPC Architectures

    SBC: EP ANALYTICS, INC..            Topic: DTRA172003

    DTRA uses High Fidelity Computer Codes (HFCC) to investigate weapon effects and techniques for countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). End-to-end HFCC simulations in support of the DTRA Agent Defeat Warfighter Capability will require calculations including multiple phenomena that occur in vastly different time scales (-sec to hours). As DTRA becomes increasingly reliant on computational mode ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Field-Expedient Nuclear Isotope Characterization Spectrometer

    SBC: Hedgefog Research Inc.            Topic: DTRA172008

    To address the DTRA's need for a field deployable mass spectrometer for nuclear forensic analysis (NFA), Hedgefog Research Inc. (HFR) proposes to develop a new Field-Expedient Nuclear Isotope Characterization Spectrometer (FENICS), based on species-specific ionization and novel signal enhancement schemes. New system features in FENICS will enable rapid, on-site characterization of nuclear debris s ...

  5. Isotope Nuclear Forensics from Optical Real-time Measurements (INFORM)

    SBC: Applied Spectra, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172008

    The SBIR Phase I effort will demonstrate the performance of an Atmospheric Pressure Glow Discharge (APGD) excitation/ionization source with Laser Ablation (LA) sampling and Optical Emission Spectroscopy (OES) for rapid field elemental and isotopic analysis of surrogate nuclear debris samples. Laser sampling mitigates the need for sample preparation or consumables. The APGD will be tested as an ato ...

  6. Non-Saturating, Real-Time Battlefield Dosimeter

    SBC: Spectral Labs Incorporated            Topic: DTRA172007

    Spectral Labs proposes the development of a radiation dosimeter capable of accurately measuring both prompt and residual gamma and neutron particles without saturating at the dose rates expected from a nuclear event. The proposed dosimeter will be capable of live readout but will typically operate in a low power sleep state for extended battery life, and the dosimeter will utilize a well-tested ci ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
