  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  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. 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 ...

  6. Engineering Models for Damage to Structural Components Subjected to Internal Blast Loading

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08006

    Predicting the response of building components to internal detonations is more complex than the corresponding task for external loads because of the more complex loading waveforms which include multiple reflections in the shock phase followed by a long duration pseudostatic loading that depends upon room venting. Add the possibility of additional impulsive loading from primary debris. We propose t ...

  7. Ballistic Missile System Innovative Radiation Hardened/Tolerant Electronics Products

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA03056

    Orora Design Technologies, teaming up ATK Mission Research and Boeing Solid-State Electronics, with the support from Oregon State University and Vanderbilt University, proposes to develop innovative mixed-mode and mixed-level simulation capacities for combined simulation of radiation and electrical performance to speed up simulation in radiation hard designs of VLSI circuits. The ultimate goal is ...

  8. Standoff Detection of IED Laden Vehicles to Include Next Generation WMD Dispersal Device Defeat

    SBC: Dymas Research Incorporated            Topic: DTRA06008

    Standoff detection of improvised explosive devices continues to be one of the most critical tasks that security specialists must confront in a wide variety of applications, both military and civilian. There have been several approaches for standoff explosive detection. Each of them utilizes a different fundamental property of explosives to improve the sensitivity of detection. In this SBIR program ...

  9. Hybrid Reactive Materials for Thermobaric Weapons

    SBC: REACTIVE METALS, INC.            Topic: DTRA06010

    It is proposed to develop hybrid powders containing highly reactive filler coated by or embedded into a matrix of readily boiling, combustible binder. The binder materials, such as paraffin wax or red phosphorus are expected to ignite and burn within the expanding fireball while the reactive filler remains at the relatively low temperature at which the binder boils, and thus remains protected fro ...

  10. Next Generation Blast Protection Technologies and Combined Blast and CBRN Protection Technologies

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA06003

    Various procedures have been proposed for evaluation/mitigation of the potential for progressive collapse in the design and/or retrofit process. These range from passive procedures that evaluate the redundancy of structures to limit failure through redistribution of gravitation loads after key elements such as columns have been removed to complete nonlinear finite element analyses of buildings sub ...
