  1. Development of Spectral and Atomic Models for Diagnosing Energetic Particle Characteristics in Fast Ignition Experiments

    SBC: Prism Computational Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 34

    In the fast ignition concept for inertial fusion energy, high-intensity short-pulse lasers are used to create energetic particles (protons and relativistic electrons) that propagate to the fuel within a compressed capsule. The efficient transport of these energetic particles to the fuel is a key issue in fast ignition research. A combination of well-diagnosed experiments and well-tested simulati ...

  3. In-Harbor/At-Sea Ship Defense with Terahertz Sensors

    SBC: VDW DESIGN, LLC            Topic: N04065

    The Phase II component of this project will scale from the gigahertz to the terahertz regime the new antennas, pulse generators, detectors and modulation concepts modeled and demonstrated in Phase I. Phase II efforts will focus on arrays for generating and detecting broadband radiation from 50 GHz to above 0.5 THz (where atmospheric absorption is minimized) for sensing concealed threats. Portabili ...

  4. Chemical/Biological Agent Non-Intrusive Detection

    SBC: Brandt Innovative Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05005

    We propose to construct and test a prototype system capable of non-invasively probing the characteristics of material properties using acoustical waves through thermal conversion of a remote laser pulse. The advantages of proposed system as an inspection and identification technique are: 1) Non-contact: Sensor does not require contact with container 2) Stand-off: Sensor could be located many meter ...

  5. Utilize Cementitious High Carbon Fly Ash (CHCFA) to Stabilize Cold In-Place Recycled (CIR) Asphalt Pavement as Base Course

    SBC: Bloom Consultants, LLC            Topic: 11

    Because of stringent environmental regulations, the power generation industry must take measures to reduce the emission of nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur oxides (Sox), and mercury (Hg). Low-NOx burners reduce emissions by changing the combustion characteristics of coal boilers, but they increase the amount of residual unburned carbon in the fly ash. Increased carbon levels in fly ash make air-ent ...

  6. Multifunctional Aircraft Protective Coating

    SBC: HENTZEN COATINGS, INC.            Topic: AF05133

    The coating system currently used on U.S. Air Force and Navy aircraft is a two-coat system consisting of a chromated epoxy primer per MIL-PRF-23377 ("23377 primer") underneath a urethane topcoat per MIL-PRF-85285 ("85285 topcoat"). The development of a multi-functional coating with advanced performance properties is critical to achieving a single step corrosion inhibiting topcoat to replace the c ...
