  1. Insider Threat Detection and Response Using Formal Methods

    SBC: Aries Design Automation, LLC            Topic: 52d

    This project will extend the Capability Acquisition Graph (CAG) model to a form that can be easily analyzed with formal methods in order to develop countermeasures for cyber attacks arising from within an organization. The extension will be based on an efficient translation of the problem to Boolean Satisfiability (SAT), in order to exploit the both the speed and capacity of SAT solvers. Extensio ...

  2. Formal Methods for Robustness Checking of Radiation-Hardened-by-Design Microelectronics

    SBC: Aries Design Automation, LLC            Topic: 60b

    For more than four decades, space-based systems have been used to support the detection of activities associated with the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. This project will develop efficient and scalable tool to evaluate the robustness of radiation-hardened circuits and to automatically generate recommendations for radiation hardening in these space systems. The tool will be based o ...

  3. HgTe/CdTe Superlattice FTIR Detectors Optimized for the 300-to-1000 cm-1 Region

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 58c

    The 300-1000 cm-1 spectral region, commonly referred to as the fingerprint region, is rich in spectral signatures; also, blackbody emission at room temperature peaks in this region. Thus, high-resolution infrared (IR) detectors sensitive in this region are seriously needed for the remote sensing of weapons of mass destruction (WMD), especially nuclear weapons. However, existing IR detectors do n ...

  4. Development of Thin Refractory Actinide Plates for High Power RIB Targets

    SBC: I.C. Gomes Consulting & Investment Inc.            Topic: 49d

    The performance of the target is essential for the successful operation of a RIB (Radioactive Ion Beam) facility. The target must have fast release to allow short-lived isotopes to be available for experiments, and it has to be able to withstand the power that will be deposited in the bulk of the target material. The availability of thin plates of refractory actinides, with high density and high ...

  5. Backside Contact Multijunction Solar Cells for Concentrator Applications

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: 23d

    Solar concentrator systems will require solar cells with improved efficiency and reduced cost in order to be competitive. New approaches are needed to build solar cells for optimum performance in high concentration applications. This project will demonstrate multifunction solar cells with backside contacts, which can significantly improve cell efficiencies when used in high-concentration applica ...

  6. High Power Co-Axial SRF Coupler

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 04b

    A superconducting RF (SRF) power coupler capable of handling 500 kW CW RF power is required for present and future storage rings and linacs. There are over 35 coupler designs for SRF cavities ranging in frequency from 325 to 1500 MHz. Coupler windows vary from cylinders to cones to disks and RF power couplers will always be limited by the ability of ceramic windows to withstand the stresses due to ...

  7. High Field YBCO Magnet Technology for Muon Cooling

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 36d

    Superconducting YBCO coated conductors, originally developed for high temperature operation, carry significant current even in the presence of extremely high magnetic fields, when they operate at low temperature. The successful design of the magnets needed for high energy physics applications using such high-field YBCO depends critically on engineering property issues, including the dependence of ...

  8. H-Ion Sources for High Intensity Proton Drivers

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 03b

    The detection of activities related to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction requires a capability of the automatic tracking of moving vehicles from an overhead platform. Current approaches rely on spatial-temporal characteristics coupled with moving object maps and tracking techniques. If the vehicle can be continually tracked, these techniques will work well. However, due to gaps i ...

  9. Improved DC Gun Insulator Assembly

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 03a

    Many DOE user facilities, such as synchrotron radiation light sources and free electron lasers, require accelerating structures that can support electric fields of 10-100 MV/m, especially at the start of the accelerator chain where ceramic insulators are used for very high gradient DC guns. These insulators are difficult to manufacture, require long commissioning times, and have poor reliability. ...

  10. Phase and Frequency Locked Magnetrons for SRF Sources

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 46a

    Typically, high power sources for accelerator applications are composed of many megawatt microwave tubes that are combined together to form ultra high-power localized power stations. The RF power is then distributed to multiple strings of cavities through high power waveguide systems, which are expensive to produce and operate. Alternatively, the more efficient magnetrons could be used as the mi ...
