  1. Real-Time Frequency-Selective Fading Channel Realization Generator

    SBC: Welkin Sciences, LLC            Topic: DTRA122020

    During Phase I and a first Phase II, Welkin Sciences developed the Channel Realization Generator (CReG) algorithm, an enhanced functional replacement for the ACIRF code intended to be embedded into software link simulations and HWIL fading channel simulators. The proposed second Phase II effort will refine the CReG documentation and its software and firmware implementations. Many in the strategic ...

  2. Hardware-in-the-Loop Scintillation Simulator for MILSATCOM links in a Nuclear Disturbed Communication Environment

    SBC: Welkin Sciences, LLC            Topic: DTRA172006

    In response to SBIR Topic DTRA172-006, Welkin Sciences proposes to design and build a new all-digital fading channel simulator to be called CoLTSAD. This new simulator design will be the latest addition to our family of Configurable Link Test Sets (CoLTS). It will be capable of emulating the full range of MIL-STD-3053 scintillating channel conditions for all SATCOM frequency bands up to Ka-band. C ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Low Cost Large N Acoustic Array

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172001

    TDA Research Inc. (TDA) proposes to adapt off the shelf hardware and combine it with acoustic analysis techniques to develop an inexpensive, efficient, and scalable large number array of low cost acoustic sensors. Low frequency acoustic sensing detects a wide array of natural and manmade events including weather tracking, avalanche monitoring, explosion analysis, and nuclear test monitoring. By us ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Novel Methods to Measure Penetrator Dynamics in Multi-Layer Geometries

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07011

    In Phase I of this effort we analyzed the structural response of a BLU 109 during typical penetration events. Based on these finite element results, we proposed and demsonstrated a simple robust concept for a passive penetrator sensor that identifies the material being penetrated and also correlates strongly with its underground trajectory. Such a sensor would obviously provide valuable informatio ...

  7. 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 (

  8. SEE Modeling and Mitigation in Ultra-Deep Submicron Microelectronics

    SBC: Microelectronics Research Development Corporation            Topic: DTRA07005

    As technology feature sizes decrease, single event upset (SEU), digital single event transient (DSET), and multiple bit upset (MBU) effects dominate the radiation response of microcircuits. Recent test circuits and test methods have quantified the pulse widths of DSETs generated from heavy-ion strikes on critical microcircuit nodes. These pulse widths have proven to be much larger than previousl ...

  9. Engineered Substrates for “Zero-Penalty” Radiation Hardening of Ultra Deep Submicron Commercial Processes

    SBC: RADIATION ASSURED DEVICES, INC.            Topic: DTRA08003

    We have developed engineered epitaxial layers based on nanostructure technology that can potentially harden commercial silicon devices against radiation by minimizing collected photocurrents (electron-hole pairs) via recombination centers. Adding recombination centers in CMOS devices is a well-known technique for reducing the collected charge; however, attempts at manufacturing a device with this ...

  10. Agent Defeat using a DWA Accelerator

    SBC: Brookhaven Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08008

    A new type of compact induction accelerator currently under development at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) promises to increase the average accelerating gradient by at least an order of magnitude over that of existing induction machines. The machine is based on the use of high gradient vacuum insulators and advanced dielectric materials and switches. The system, called the Diel ...
