  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. Radiation Effects Characterization Tool for SiGe Processes

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: DTRA121002

    Ridgetop Group will develop a low-cost reliability and radiation effects characterization tool for state-of-the art silicon-germanium (SiGe) fabrication processes. The significance of this innovation is that SiGe bipolar complementary metal oxide semiconductor (BiCMOS) integrated circuits (ICs) have demonstrated extremely high performance for critical DOD applications, and SiGe has also been shown ...

  5. Technologies to Mitigate Radiation Effects in Advanced Nanoscale Microelectronics

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA112003

    The goal of this research is to develop electronic design automation (EDA) tools to automate the following three major radiation-hardened-by-design (RHBD) tasks: (1) The capture of RHBD design constraints and design rules for sub-90nm mixed-signal designs in an industry-standard EDA data base, (2) Checking and verifying if a given sub-90nm mixed-signal design satisfies all the RBHD design const ...

  6. Calculation of Impulse Response Function During Realistic Scenarios

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: DTRA103001

    It is well known that satellite communications and radar signals propagating in the natural ionosphere can be disturbed. It has also been widely reported that the ionosphere is subject to even greater disturbances following nuclear detonations. Hence the design of robust satellite communications and radar systems must take into account the effects of ionospheric disturbances. Radar and communic ...

  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 ...
