  1. Low-Energy Maskless Lithography to Mitigate Radiation Effects in Advanced Nanoscale Microelectronics

    SBC: Multibeam Corporation            Topic: DTRA112003

    The need for novel weapons to defeat urban targets and rapidly immobalize enemy combatants hiding in bunkers, caves, and basements requires new weapons and tactics. Thermobaric warheads can provide tailored blast response optimized for the defeat of these targets with low collateral damage. In this Phase I SBIR program, Powdermet will develop surface-coated metallic particles that can deliver tail ...

  3. Solutions for Single-Event Effects in Ultra Deep Submicron Semiconductor Technologies Using Simulation and Layout Techniques

    SBC: ROBUST CHIP INC.            Topic: DTRA102008

    This project offers two powerful and efficient solutions to solve the mounting problems in design of radiation hard electronics: a range of ultra hard, high performance, sequential and combinatorial logic blocks based on the new, and enormously effective, LEAP RHBD layout methodology, and an accurate and efficient analysis, design, and simulation solution for single events. The Layout design ...

  5. DLeN: Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material

    SBC: CLOSTRA, INC.            Topic: DTRA162001

    Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (DLeN) applies the same deep learning techniques that allow computers to beat human performance in image recognition and the game of Go to detecting Special Nuclear Material. Spectral analysis and signal processing can in some cases be augmented by the use of much larger neural nets that conduct much deeper analysis of features of th ...

  6. Stochastic Consideration of Cased Munitions for Casing Breakup and Airblast

    SBC: Karagozian & Case            Topic: DTRA102003

    The objective for the proposed effort is to develop a robust, effective, and deterministic/stochastic means to characterize blast effects from cased explosives pertaining to computing responses of structural components. This also includes creation of appropriate engineering aids/software/algorithms for transforming these blast effects into structural loads suitable for incorporation into high-fid ...

  7. Compact Laser Drivers for Photoconductive Semicond

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: DTRA16A004

    For effective protection against radiated threats, it is important to understand not only the physics of the threats, but also to quantify the effects they have on mission-critical electrical systems. Radiated vulnerability and susceptibility testing requires delivery of high peak power and peak electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments on large ...

  8. Covert Optically-Reporting Threat-Functionalized Nanomaterials

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: DTRA122003

    To address the limitations of diagnostic equipment for chemical and biological warfare agent threats, Voxtel proposes to further develop low-cost, rapid biological-threat-reporting optical nanomaterials for a tag-track-and-locate system to consistsing of five components: 1) nanocrystal nanobeacons, a series of covert threat-functionalized optical identifiers with near-infrared through short-wave i ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. PLASMA STRUCTURE IN LATER-TIME HANE PLASMAS- LABORATORY SIMULATION

    SBC: Jaycor, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    BECAUSE INTERNATION TREATIES PRECLUDE HIGH-ALTITUDE NUCLEAR TESTS, THERE IS LITTLE RELEVANT DATA FROM NUCLEAR BURSTS REGARDING THE SIZE AND DYNAMICS OF STRIATIONS IN NUCLEAR PLUMES OR EVEN THE BASIC PHYSICAL CONDITIONS WHICH PERMIT THE EVOLUTION OF STRIATIONS. THE UNDERSTANDING OF STRIATION BEHAVIOR IS IMPORTANT, AS STRIATIONS GENERATED WHEN THE IONOSPHERE IS DISTURBED BY NATURAL OR NONNUCLEAR MAN ...
