The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. "Electrothermal Gun Interior Ballistics Model Assessment"

    SBC: Fluid Physics Ind.            Topic: N/A

    THE ELECTRO-THERMAL-COMBUSTION (ETC) GUN CONCEPT WAS DEVELOPED AS AN ADVANCED TECHNIQUE FOR HYPERVELOCITY GUN SYSTEMS WHICH AUGMENTS THE ELECTRICAL ENERGY INPUT OF THE ORIGINAL ET GUN BY USING A REACTIVE WORKING FLUID. THIS HOWEVER HAS COMPROMISED THE ABILITY TO CONTROL THE INTERIOR BALLISTIC PROCESSED PRINCIPAL ADVANTAGE OF THE ET GUN CONCEPT. IN THE ETC GUN, THE GAS GENERATION RATE IS ONE STEP R ...

  2. "Typical day" Meteorological Data for Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion (ATD) Modeling

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: DTRA06004

    The complexity of Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion (ATD) modeling requires physically consistent weather data evolving in both space and time. Spatially and/or temporally averaged data found in climatological products is not suitable for ATD modeling. The proposed solution for providing “typical day” meteorological data couples innovative search techniques applied to long-range historical ...

  4. 220 Watt, Man-Portable, Chemical Hydride Based Fuel Cell System for Arms Control Applications

    SBC: TRULITE TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    "Now that reliable, robust, commercial proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) are available, the problem has shifted to fuel storage. PEMFCs function most efficiently (>50%) when supplied with pure hydrogen. Unfortunately, storing large quantitiesof hydrogen in a compact, lightweight form has proven to be very difficult. Most of the hydrogen storage methods that have been developed for fu ...

  5. 3-D ANIMATION OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS EFFECTS CALCULATIONS

    SBC: Morlock Enviromentalinc            Topic: N/A

    A DEMONSTRATION WILL BE PERFORMED THAT WILL SHOW THE UTILITY OF REAL TIME ANIMATION OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS EFFECTS DATA. DATA DEPICTING THE PROPAGATION OF AN AIRBLAST, GROUND SHOCK AND CRATER FORMATION WILL BE SIMULTANEOUSLY ANIMATED ON A 3-D GRAPHICS WORKSTATION. RECENT ADVANTAGES IN COMPUTING HAVE MADE IT POSSIBLE TO RENDER 3-D SHADED IMAGES OF POLYGON DATA AT INCREDIBLE SPEEDS. BY USING EXISTING SO ...

  6. 3-Dimensional Hazard and Consequence Assessment Visualization

    SBC: NOESIS, INC.            Topic: DTRA04006

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of utilizing a three-dimensional spatial display to visualize information from a time-varying hazard prediction model. A spatial 3D display offers true volumetric projections of data and allows observers to gain insight of hazard information that is not possible with conventional 3D graphical scenes on a 2D surface or with presented ...

  7. 8-LB CHARGE HOB EXPERIMENT REPORT

    SBC: CARPENTER RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    PHASE I PROPOSES TO GATHER THE DATA AND DISCRIPTIVE INFORMATION FOR A 28-SHOT SET OF EXPERIMENTS MADE IN THE EARLY 1970'S TO MEASURE HIGH OVERPRESSURE AIRBLAST FROM 8-LB CHARGES OF PBX-9404, TO PREPARE A WORK PLAN AND PROCEDURES FOR COMPLETING THE DATA PROCESSING FROM THE EXPERIMENTS, CHECKOUT THE PROCEDURES WITH SAMPLE ANALYSES, AND TO PREPARE A COST ESTIMATE FOR PHASE II. THE COMPLETION OF PHASE ...

  8. A Chemical Sniffer to Detect Nuclear Weapons

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a vapor phase detector of the chemicals/explosives associated with nuclear weaponry. Radioactivity detection allows accurate weapons verification, but provides too much information on the weaponry design. An alternative is to detect otherchemicals associated with nuclear weaponry. EIC Laboratories has successfully developed vapor phase Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) ...

  9. A COMBINED THEORETIACL AND EXPERIMENTAL EFFORT IS PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPING A SUITABLE EPM MATERIAL WHICH PROVIDES SUBSTANTIAL PROTECTION AGAINST ANTICIPATED LASER THREATS.

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A COMBINED THEORETIACL AND EXPERIMENTAL EFFORT IS PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPING A SUITABLE EPM MATERIAL WHICH PROVIDES SUBSTANTIAL PROTECTION AGAINST ANTICIPATED LASER THREATS. A NEW MATERIAL CONCEPT IS PROPOSED WHICH PROVIDES FOR DISSIPATION OF INCIDENT LASER ENERGY TO REFLECTION, ABLATION AND ANISOTROPIC THERMAL CONDUCTION. THIS MATERIAL IS EXPECTED TO INCREASE THE LASER INTERACTION TIME REQUIRED FOR ...

  10. A CONCEPT FOR USING RF AS A NON-LETHAL DETERRENT TO INTRUDERS INTO NUCLEAR WEAPONS STORAGE FACILITIES

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVICE DESCRIBED IN THIS PHASE I PROPOSAL INCORPORATES A NOVEL TECHNIQUE FOR USING RF AS AN ENHANCEMENT TO FACILITY SECURITY SYSTEMS. RF HAS OFTEN BEEN INVESTIGATED AS A METHOD FOR PROVIDING A NON-LETHAL DETERRENT TO INTRUSION INTO SECURED FACILITIES SUCH AS STORAGE FACILITIES FOR NUCLEAR WEAPONS. THE PRIMARY PROBLEM ASSOCIATED WITH THE SYSTEMS THAT HAVE BEEN STUDIED HAS BEEN THE ABILITY TO CO ...
