  1. Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: A16AT004

    Laboratory investigations have suggested that acoustically or vibrationally inducing motion in buried targets can aid in improving target detectability through a characteristic response related to differential target motion. This gain is realized by adding an additional degree of freedom, modulation due to motion in the GPR return signal, to use as a discriminating feature. The AKELA team is propo ...

  2. Development of powder bed printing (3DP) for rapid and flexible fabrication of energetic material payloads and munitions

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: DTRA16A001

    This program will demonstrate how additive manufacturing technologies can be used with reactive and high energy materials to create rapid and flexible fabrication of payload and munitions. Our primary approach to this problem will be to use powder bed binder printing techniques to print reactive structures. The anticipated feedstock will consist of composite particles containing all reactant spe ...

  3. Electronically Tunable High-Power Infrared Lasers for Standoff Detection Applications

    SBC: Pranalytica, Inc.            Topic: A14AT015

    In response to the Army STTR Topic A14A-T015 solicitation for tunable high-power LWIR lasers for standoff detection applications, Pranalytica proposed to develop a compact, rugged and highly reliable wavelength tunable quantum cascade laser (QCL) module delivering over 5W of peak power and over 0.5W of average power in the spectral region spanning from 7 to 11m. The proposed approach is based on a ...

  4. High Gain, High Power PCSS with Integrated Monolithic Optical Trigger

    SBC: Eureka Aerospace            Topic: A14AT004

    This proposal addresses the problem of PCSS/laser trigger integration using a single monolithic laser diode array, thus simplifying the entire optical delivery network necessary for efficient operation of PCSSs. The proposal constitutes a logical continuation of Phase I effort where the main focus was on the detailed design of the PCSS/laser diode array (LDA) integrated architecture. In Phase II ...

  5. High Gain, High Power PCSS with Integrated Monolithic Optical Trigger

    SBC: Ness Engineering, Inc.            Topic: A14AT004

    The objective of this Phase II proposal is to continue the development of a Photoconductive Semiconductor Switch (PCSS) with an integrated optical trigger that can switch at least 30 kV, 1 kA, 20 ns pulses with jitter 108 shots. Ness Engineering, Inc. (NEI) and Texas Tech University (TTU) propose to utilize wide bandgap materials to demonstrate lock-on switching and allow much less optical trigger ...

  6. Identification of Multiple Illicit Drugs Using a Handheld Detector Based on Chemiresitive Sensor Arrays

    SBC: Next Dimension Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A16AT008

    Next Dimension Technologies and Caltech will jointly develop a handheld detector to meet the Armys need for a field-based illicit drug identification system. The project will focus on the design and development of a dual-mode chemiresistive sensor array capable of detecting key drugs of interest, including synthetic cannabinoids and opioids. Novel sensing materials, with enhanced chemical sensit ...

  7. Innovative Mitigation of Radiation Effects in Advanced Technology Nodes

    SBC: Reliable MicroSystems, LLC            Topic: DTRA16A003

    Establish a radiation-aware analysis capability in a commercial EDA design flow that will enable first-pass success in radiation-hardened by design (RHBD) for DoD ASICs in much the same way that existing EDA design suites ensure first pass functionality and performance success of complex ASICs destined for commercial applications. Layout-aware, calibrated single-event radiation models that captur ...

  8. Miniature Mass Spectrometer for Peptide Sequencing and Mobile Coupling with Separation Techniques

    SBC: Bayspec, Inc.            Topic: A16AT012

    Using advanced ion optics that was developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), BaySpec will develop a prototype of portable mass spectrometer (less than 40 lb. and 300W) with continuous atmospheric pressure inlet that is fully capable of uninterrupted on-line sampling from an ambient environment. The continuous nature of the inlet ensures full compatibility with separation technique ...

  9. Modular Pulse Charger and Laser Triggering System for Large-Scale EMP and HPM Applications

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: DTRA16A004

    For effective protection against EMP and HPM threats, it is important to understand the physics of the threats, and also to quantify the effects they have on electrical systems. EMP and HPM vulnerability testing requires delivery of high peak power and electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments is to develop a modular, optically-isolated MV-antenn ...
