  1. Adiabatic Thermopile for Radiation Dosimetry

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "Measurements of fluence from a Plasma Radiation Source (PRS) are critical to the performance of accurate Nuclear Weapon Effects (NWE) experiments. Fast, total stopping calorimeters have been demonstrated to provide a robust, reusable, economic sensor forfluence measurements. However, the output of these sensors is a few millivolts and thus high signal to noise recording is difficult to achieve, ...

  2. Application of Turbine Engines in Naval Special Warfare (NSW) Craft

    SBC: MARINE TURBINE TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The objective is to modify and test gas turbine engines presently installed in/on marine craft to demonstrate that by adapting technology used on street legal vehicles can be used to reduce the heat and noise levels in marine craft. Whether or not the IR15dB level or lower, and the above water acoustic/noise level to 60dB level or lower can be achieved, is a matter that can only be demostrated by ...

  3. Capillary discharge source for high fidelity, plasma radiation source loads

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Science based assessments of the response of systems and material to hostile nuclear environments require detailed verified material response and failure criteria for confident results. Consequently there is a need for the development of experimentaltechniques to measure low pressure equation of state parameters accurately and economically using radiation simulators. The development of a soft x- ...

  4. Chemical and Biological Agent Deny: Selective Phosphate Ester Hydrolysis

    SBC: Icagen, Inc.            Topic: DTRA06012

    This proposed work will generate a targeted phosphate ester hydrolysis catalyst for agent denial. This catalyst will be targeted by conjugation to single stranded DNA. Characteristics of the catalyst will be determined, including ruggedness, targeting selectivity, and potential methods for deployment.

  5. Compact Solid-State Switch for Fast Marx Generators

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    Upon successful completion of the proposed program, an accelerant payload concept shall be developed and evaluated. The use of an accelerant payload allows the munitions system designer the capability to exploit a thermal target defeat mechanism, inaddition to coupling to traditional high explosive/fragmentation defeat mechanisms, to increase the overall target lethality. The use of a thermal ac ...

  6. Development of a Soft X-Ray Driven Flyer Plate System for Low Pressure Equation of State Studies

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Present reflex triode (RT) design performance is limited by debris shield response. The shield designs were derived empirically to satisfy specific experiment requirements. Optimizing the RT design will double target dose. Debris shield deformation definesthe closest permissible location of the test object and therefore determines the maximum dose achievable. The deformation of the debris shield c ...

  7. Development of Time Resolved Technique to Infer 1-Dimensional Magnetic Field Distributions from Zeeman Broadened Lines

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    The task of computationally simulating the dispersion and/or neutralization of toxic chemical/biological (CB) agents, released from weapons of mass destruction (WMD), puts a very high demand on the capability of current generation computational dynamics(CFD) codes. Current advanced computational tools for WMD threat simulation fail to address all the necessary physics, do not incorporate emerging ...

  8. Diaphragm Pressure Gauge

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "Nuclear Weapons Effects Tests (NWET) frequently require that the test article be irradiated in an ultra-clean environment, making survivable shields a necessary part of many debris systems. Survivable shields as large as 12 inches in diameter are requiredbut have yet to be demonstrated in Plasma Radiating Source (PRS) environments. The loads on a survivable shield are a combination of radiation i ...

  9. Enhanced Stability and Penetration Depth of Deep Earth Penetrators

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: DTRA06009

    Three concepts will be evaluated in order to achieve flow separation and penetration enhancement of Earth Penetrating Weapons (EPW). One concept addresses the merit of carrying fluid within the EPW. The other two describe new techniques addressing the generation of gases from the structure of the penetrator accompanied by energy release in the interface. Experimental as well as analytical effort ...

  10. Extreme Environment Hand-Wear system

    SBC: Kreamer Sports, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Our Phase I study proved the feasibility of using monofilament carbon tow and thin resistant wire in a glove system to provide an adequate heat source to keep a soldier's hands comfortable in extreme cold temperatures while retaining hand dexterity andtactility. Our objectives during Phase II are to (1) incorporate our heat generation process into a super thin, non-melting, flame-rerardant materi ...
