  1. Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects in Nonplanar Nano-technology Microelectronics

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA092001

    Future high-performance integrated circuits in DoD satellite systems will require silicon-on-insulator (SOI) and non-planar nano-technology devices, such as MultiGate Field Effect Transistors (MuGFETs) or FinFETs, which can decrease pattern area of logic circuits below 50% of the conventional planar technologies. However, the single-event-effect (SEE) response of non-planar devices and circuits is ...

  2. Weapon Payloads for Bulk Chemical and Biological Agent Neutralization

    SBC: Integrated Solutions For Systems, Inc.            Topic: DTRA092012

    Current offensive solutions to neutralize chem/bio agent facilities rely on blast and/or short-burst high-temperature neutralization but have the potential to produce severe collateral damage via agent release. Our team proposes the Dispersed Energetics Coupled for Optimized Neutralization (DECON) Concept, an alternative concept to perform bulk neutralization of agents. The DECON concept can be ...

  3. Agent Defeat using a DWA Accelerator

    SBC: Brookhaven Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08008

    A new type of compact induction accelerator currently under development at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) promises to increase the average accelerating gradient by at least an order of magnitude over that of existing induction machines. The machine is based on the use of high gradient vacuum insulators and advanced dielectric materials and switches. The system, called the Diel ...

  4. Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects in High-Speed Compound Semiconductor Microelectronics

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA08003

    For ultra high speed applications in DoD satellite systems, devices and circuits fabricated from III–V semiconductor compounds offer significant advantages over silicon-based technology in terms of operating speed and power. However, the uncertainty in single-event-effect (SEE) response of compound technologies forces the use of empirically-based hardening techniques with penalties in increased ...

  5. Engineering Models for Damage to Structural Components Subjected to Internal Blast Loading

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08006

    Predicting the response of building components to internal detonations is more complex than the corresponding task for external loads because of the more complex loading waveforms which include multiple reflections in the shock phase followed by a long duration pseudostatic loading that depends upon room venting. Add the possibility of additional impulsive loading from primary debris. We propose t ...

  6. Novel Methods to Measure Penetrator Dynamics in Multi-Layer Geometries

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07011

    In Phase I of this effort we analyzed the structural response of a BLU 109 during typical penetration events. Based on these finite element results, we proposed and demsonstrated a simple robust concept for a passive penetrator sensor that identifies the material being penetrated and also correlates strongly with its underground trajectory. Such a sensor would obviously provide valuable informatio ...

  7. Real-time, Three-dimensional, Visualization Software for Current and Next Generation Consequence Assessment Models

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA04006

    We propose to develop a forward-deployable, three-dimensional visualization capability suitable for incorporation into web-based, next-generation consequence assessment models, such as the Joint Effects Model (JEM) and the Integrated Weapons of Mass Destruction Toolset (IWMDT). The thin-interface, web-based, image-server visualization model will enable more informed decisions by the consequence as ...

  8. Improved Mixed-Mode Simulation Tools for Radiation Hardening of Nanoscale Semiconductor Integrated Circuits

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA05001

    Strategic DoD satellite and missile systems (Space Based Radar, Space Tracking Surveillance Systems) operate in harsh radiation environments, and will be increasingly based on novel sub-100-nm semiconductor technologies and highly complex circuits. To ensure interruption-free operation, accurate prediction of the radiation response of these technologies and circuits is critical. Predictive calcula ...

  9. Improved High-Fidelity Forecasting Capability using Combined Mesoscale and Microscale Models

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA04002

    We propose to improve the accuracy and capability of Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) and Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion (ATD) models by performing a tight, downscale/upscale coupling of a community NWP forecasting system, WRF, with a special purpose, urban-to-microscale Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model. This new capability addresses “bridging the gap” between the mesoscale and ...

  10. Calibration and Use of Site-Specific Urban Weather Observations Data using Microscale Modeling

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA06001

    We propose to develop a capability to correct and calibrate intra-urban sited meteorological stations data for subsequent use by NWP, ATD and force protection models. This new capability will provide a number of related innovations, including: a standalone software capability to assist in the siting of meteorological stations in urban areas; the development of sensor-centralized vertical profiles ...
