  1. A fast pulse, intermediate flux, bench-top, high rep-rate x-ray source for PRS diagnostic calibration

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: DTRA06013

    Presently, commercial and government radiation test facilities do not have convenient, reliable calibration systems for routine, day-in, day-out checks on x-ray and neutron detectors or their filter arrays. Lack of such calibration systems compromises the quality of the testing, and leads to wasted time and manpower resources used to resolve the ensuing uncertainties. We are developing a compact, ...

  2. A Portable Gamma Spectrometer with a High Resolution CdTe Array Detector

    SBC: Radiation Safety Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a battery powered portable monitoring system capable of collecting and analyzing gamma spectra for specific radionuclides in the field. The system will consist of a high resolution cadmium telluride array detector and a small multichannel analyzer and data logger. The proposed monitoring system builds upon the design of the Ludlum Model 2350 Data Logger which is quite rugge ...

  3. A TECHNICAL HYPERTEXT SYSTEM

    SBC: Horizons Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HORIZONS TECHNOLOGY, INC., (HTI) PROPOSES TO EXAMINE THE BENEFITS OF APPLYING HYPERTEXT, EXPERT SYSTEM, AND MICROCOMPUTER TECHNOLOGIES TO INCREASE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING AND COMPUTATIONAL AIDS (CAP) AND BY INCREASING THE USABILITY OF REFERENCE DOCUMENTATION DESCRIBING COMPLEX NUCLEAR WEAPON EFFECTS PHENOMENOLOGY. A HYPERTEXT DOCUMENT ALLOWS THE USER TO EASILY ACCESS DIFFERENT TY ...

  4. A TIME-RESOLVED HARD X-RAY SPECTROMETER

    SBC: BERKELEY RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    FOR TESTING OF ELECTRONICS IT IS IMPORTANT HOW THE X-RAY ENERGY SPECTRUM FROM A BREMSSTRAHLUNG FLASH X-RAY SIMULATOR CHANGES WITH TIME. HOWEVER, ONLY THE TIME-INTEGRATED SPECTRUM CAN BE MEASURED CONVENIENTLY, USING DIFFERENTIALLY FILTERED TLD'S. THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A TIME-DEPENDENT VERSION OF A DIFFERENTIALLY FILTERED SPECTROMETER, BY REPLACING THE TLD'S WITH PHOTOCONDUCTIVE ELEMENTS SUCH ...

  5. A Very Deep Submicron Cell Library and Design System for Radiation Hardened ASICs

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "The proposed project will design, demonstrate, and market a very deep submicron cell library and design system for radiation hardened ASICs and standard products. Specifically, we will develop a scaleable 0.18 ¿m, hardened by design (HBD) cell library tosupport the radiation hardening of ASICs fabricated in commercial silicon foundries, but exhibiting total dose hardness in excess of 300 Krad(S ...

  6. Advanced Radiation Detector

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA05014

    In response to a DTRA need, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) has developed a new, low-cost Advanced Radiation Detector (ARAD) and a process to produce it. ARAD is based on thallium-doped cesium iodide scintillator, sensitive to gamma and X-ray energies up to 1 MeV with 3% resolution, and fully compatible with existing mass production technologies. In Phase I POC successfully completed the ARAD ...

  7. Advanced Solutions for Radiation Susceptibility Analysis & Prediction

    SBC: LUCID CIRCUIT, INC.            Topic: DTRA162006

    With the advent of high-density low-power sub-20nm technology processes and circuits with tens-of-billions of transistors, radiation-induced single-event effects present a new set of design challenges for terrestrial applications. Developing reliable single-event effect resilient microelectronics in these modern technology nodes is a resource and time-intensive endeavor that further requires valid ...

  8. Annular Gas Jet Anode for Decade

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: DTRA04010

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to replace the anode posts of a soft x-ray z-pinch with an azimuthally symmetric shell of high density, low atomic number gas. Once ionized, the gas column carries the current and eliminates particulate debris that is otherwise generated by the return rods. The gas shell also absorbs unwanted UV and hence eliminates the first Li foil filter of t ...

  9. APPLICATION OF ADVANCED COMPUTER RESOURCES TO PLASMA PHYSICS CODES

    SBC: PHYSICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AT PRESENT, COMPUTERS ARE AVAILABLE WITH ENORMOUS QUANTITIES OF CORE STORAGE AND EXTREMELY FAST COMPUTATIONAL CAPABILITIES AS COMPARED WITH COMPUTERS JUST A FEW YEARS OLD. IN THE NEXT YEAR OR TWO, EVEN MORE DRAMATIC INCREASES IN MEMORY AND COMPUTATIONAL SPEED WILL BECOME AVAILABLE. OF IMPORTANCE TO DNA/RAAE IS THE FACT THAT THESE NEW COMPUTERS WILL ALLOW THE CALCULATION OF HIGH ALTITUDE NUCLEAR WE ...

  10. AUTOMATED TERCOM PLACEMENT AND EVALUATION

    SBC: Systems Control Technology,            Topic: N/A

    DETERMINING SITES TO BUILD NEW TERCOM MAPS HAVE PROVEN TO BE A VERY COMPLICATED AND TIME CONSUMING TASK, AS EVIDENCED IN BOTH SIOP CRUISE MISSILE PLANNING AND OPERATION DESERT STORM. THE CRUISE MISSILE PLANNER, WITH SOME DIFFICULTY, CAN DETERMINE NEEDED CANDIDATE TERCOM SITES, BUT ALL TOO OFTEN, BECAUSE OF INSUFFICIENT TERRAIN ROUGHNESS, THE DEFENSE MAPPING AGENCY (DMA) IS UNABLE TO CREATE A TERCO ...
