  1. Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects in Quantum Dot Based Nanotechnologies

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA082001

    For applications in DoD satellite systems, devices based on novel nanomaterials offer significant advantages over traditional technologies in terms of light-weight and efficiency. Examples of such novel devices include quantum dot (QD) based solar cells, photodetectors, radars and sensors. However, the response of these devices to radiation effects is not well understood, and radiation effects mod ...

  2. Cost-Effective Gas Flow Data Sensors

    SBC: Exquadrum, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08007

    Current high energy, multi-room test facilities operated in support of Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) efforts suffer from a lack of robust sensors that can provide a cost-effective approach to obtaining dynamic pressure induced gas flows during internal detonations events. Exquadrum, Inc proposes a new sensor package that utilizes existing piezoelectric sensor technologies, but incorporat ...

  3. The Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects on Nano-technology Microelectronics

    SBC: ROBUST CHIP INC.            Topic: DTRA082001

    Robust Chip Inc. (RCI) and Stanford University (Stanford – subcontractor) propose a project with two main parts: 1. Development of a unique new layout and circuit design methodology for complete protections against both single and multiple single event errors with a minimal circuit and layout overhead. 2. Development, and integration with fundamental design flow technology (physical design and v ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Novel Energetic Materials

    SBC: Powdermet, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05002

    Reactive Warheads increase lethality by igniting propellants and fuel, by melting and destroying electronic components, by providing blast overpressure inside of a target after impact, and by providing thermal energy to destroy chemical and bilogical agents. In the Phase I program, Powdermet demonstrated the production and fabrication of Metal-Polymer-salt micro/nano-scale engineered composites ...

  10. Efficient and Accurate Coupled Circuit and Substrate Simulation for Radiation Hard Electronics

    SBC: ROBUST CHIP INC.            Topic: DTRA05001

    The key innovation of the proposal is a novel, fast and accurate, algorithm (patent pending) to simulate substrate effects, in particular single event transients (SETs), in semiconductor circuits. This new method opens up a new capability for circuit designers to study a large set of substrate and layout related effects using simulation, helps them to make good choices regarding circuit design and ...
