  2. Additive Manufacturing Plastic Materials with Improved Dielectric Breakdown Strength

    SBC: Printed Performance Innovations            Topic: AF15AT07

    ABSTRACT: Material extrusion 3D printing is an Additive Manufacturing method which utilizes a polymeric monofilanment as a feedstock in the fabrication of 3D objects. The relative simplicity compared to other AM technologies makes it an attractive manufacturing tool, however, characteristics inherent to this 3D printing method (namely air gaps between print rasters) makes it undesirable for the 3D ...

  5. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is critical to detect the proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges facing this objective include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions (e.g., gamma rays) from common radioactive isotopes behind shielding, and (b) cost-effe ...

  9. Compact Laser Drivers for Photoconductive Semiconductor Switches

    SBC: ASR Corporation            Topic: DTRA16A004

    A compact laser driver will allow photoconductive semiconductor switches to be used in small EMP simulator "building blocks" (EMPBB). Combined with a battery powered on-board pulsed power system, these EMPBBs will allow the construction of flexible EMP test facilities with nothing more than a single fiber optic timing connection to each EMPBB.
