  1. Tag, Track, and Locate (TTL) technologies and concepts for combating weapons of mass destruction (CWMD).

    SBC: SURFACE TREATMENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA102001

    OBJECTIVE: Expand the state-of-the-art to develop new technologies that predict our enemy"s intentions before they act by focusing on"24x7"TTL of terrorists and WMD-related activities in what is now a global theater of war. Enhance technical capabilities to globally tag, track and locate personnel and materials associated with the development, manufacture, or proliferation of WMD. DESCRIPTI ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. HIGH EFFICIENCY COMPACT MODELING OF RADIATION EFFECTS

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05001

    The objective of this research is to develop beta versions of tools for automatically migrating radiation effects predicted in TCAD level tools to compact modeling tools. This transition will enable compact models that possess radiation effects to be quickly generated, which can then be used in circuit design activity. This approach is a substantial improvement over the current ad hoc approaches. ...

  6. Typical day Meteorological Data for Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion (ATD) modeling

    SBC: MESOSCALE ENVIRONMENTAL SIMULATIONS AND OPERATIONS, INC            Topic: DTRA06004

    The atmospheric transport and dispersion (ATD) model requirements for describing the environmental conditions that are most likely to occur on any given day, called the "typical day", are very unique. The model requirements are unique because the typical day requirements for ATD must be both typical in representing the most likely occurring condition of each variable and be mass-balanced across t ...

  7. Next Generation Blast Protection Technologies and Combined Blast and CBRN Protection Technologies

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA06003

    Various procedures have been proposed for evaluation/mitigation of the potential for progressive collapse in the design and/or retrofit process. These range from passive procedures that evaluate the redundancy of structures to limit failure through redistribution of gravitation loads after key elements such as columns have been removed to complete nonlinear finite element analyses of buildings sub ...

  8. Modeling Enhanced Energy Release in Turbulent Exothermic Flows in Closed Chambers by an Inverse Meth

    SBC: Enig Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Toward understanding how turbulent mixing with air of detonation products of fuel-rich explosives results in further combustion of the detonation products and, therefore, enhanced lethality, we first consider an exothermic reaction of a premixed fuel/oxidizer in a closed vessel in the limit of zero Mach number and infinite Reynolds, Peclet, and Damkohler numbers. To help elucidate the main mechan ...

  9. High-Order Godunov Schemes for Multiphase Gas particulate Flowfield Modeling and Simulation

    SBC: Krispin Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed work aims at deeloping two major new innovqative capabiliities for the High-Order Godunov (HOG) technology. The first new capability is in the area of low Mach number problems; new code based on the projection method scheme will be developed for complex 3D multiphase flow fields, in particular, the post explosion cloud rise phenomenon includin gparticle transport. The second new ca ...

  10. Characterization of the Radiation and Reliability Response of Integrated-Optic Components

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: N/A

    There has been a significant increase in the use of integrated-optic devices in military applications ranging from data communication and telecommunication networks to antenna remoting, missile guidance and various sensors and instruments. To guarantee the reliability of all military systems which employ these devices it is crucial that they are evaluated in both real and simulated nuclear enviro ...
