  1. Energy Harvesting Technologies

    SBC: KCF TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA102004

    OBJECTIVE: To provide innovative technologies and system components which increase the lifetime and utility of various systems within DTRA"s Tag, Track, and Locate (TTL) portfolio to combat weapons of mass destruction (WMD). The specific innovations sought under this topic are improved technologies that advance the state of the art for energy scavenging or capture from the ambient environment an ...

  2. Amorphous Metals for Penetrator Noses and Cases

    SBC: Integran Technologies U.S.A. Inc.            Topic: DTRA111003

    An amorphous metal matrix composite, consisting of a Ni-W (nickel-tungsten) amorphous matrix with second phase hard ceramic WC (tungsten-carbide) particles is proposed as an new class of metallic glass material. By leveraging Integran Technology USA"s expertise in the synthesis of nanocrystalline metals, alloys and composites, an electroforming process will be developed to produce NiW-WC: a novel ...

  3. Weapon Payloads for Chemical and Biological Agent Plume Neutralization

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: DTRA102002

    OBJECTIVE: To provide new and innovative weapon payload concepts that can neutralize (e.g., detoxify, kill or decompose) chemical and biological (CB) warfare agents in a plume released from an offensive operations strike on enemy Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) facilities. DESCRIPTION: Current conventional weapons rely on blast, fragmentation, and heat as their primary mechanism to defeat ta ...

  4. 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 ...

  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. Enhanced Stability and Penetration Depth of Deep Earth Penetrators

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: DTRA06009

    DTRA and other DoD agencies are currently seeking earth penetrators with higher efficiency for reaching deeply buried targets. Current penetrator materials and designs suffer from high levels of frictional drag, unbalanced resistance due to lateral forces and localized melting of the warhead leading to shape change and further instability. General Sciences, Inc. (GSI) has developed a method for en ...

  8. 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. ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Novel Methods of IED Suppression and Neutralization to Include Next Generation WMD Dispersal Devices

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: DTRA06007

    There is an urgent need to procure for our military forces on the ground in Iraq and in other locations technology and equipment which provide the capability to effectively and immediately detect, assess, and defend against the threat from Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). It is believed that this same threat, applied to Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) dispersal, could also increasingly beco ...
