  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. 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 non-planar nano-technology devices, such as MultiGate Field Effect Transistors (MuGFET) or FinFET, which can decrease pattern area of logic circuits below 50% of the conventional planar technologies. The International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors predicts that such devices will be the cornerstone of sub-32nm ...

  3. An Integrated, Electrokinetics-Augmented Microfluidic Device for Forensic DNA Analysis

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA092003

    The use of WMDs and IEDs by covert insurgents and terrorists poses a significant risk to U.S. military forces and civilians. The capability to execute rapid forensic DNA analysis to identify individuals who manufactured and transported these threatening devices is of paramount importance to military mission, homeland security and civilian safety. Current DNA forensic analyses are time-consuming, b ...

  4. Electrokinetic-based Microfluidic Universal Sample-Preparation (EMUS) Platform

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA092002

    Sample preparation has been recognized as the single most important challenge to be faced in the development of detect-to-warn (DTW) systems. Available commercial sample preparation technologies are expensive, slow, and require trained laboratory technicians and sophisticated laboratory equipment for operation. Addressing this need, we propose to design, fabricate, and demonstrate a general purpos ...

  5. Next Generation Blast Simulation

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: DTRA092015

    With the current state of world events, the threat of explosives used against high-value targets is more pronounced than ever before. As a result, simulation of blast events and their effects on structures has become an increasingly vital capability. Current blast simulations on Central Processing Units (CPU) resources require a significant amount of computational time, limiting their overall valu ...

  6. 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 s ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF FIBER OPTIC APPROACH LIGHTING SYSTEMS

    SBC: Edjewise Sensor Products Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NEW LIGHTING TECHNOLOGIES, INCLUDING FIBER OPTICS AND HIGH EFFICIENCY ARC SOURCES, WILL BE APPLIED IN THIS PHASE I PROJECT TO DEVELOP INNOVATIVE APPROACH LIGHTING SYSTEMS (ALS) FOR AIRPORT RUNWAYS. THE GOAL IS TO REPLACE THE LARGE NUMBER OF INDIVIDUAL INCANDESCENT SPOT LIGHTS PRESENTLY IN SUCH SYSTEMS WITH REMOTE SOURCES COUPLED TO OPTICAL WAVEGUIDES THAT WILL TRANSMIT AND PROJECT THE REQUIRED HIG ...

  8. Miniature, Handheld Chemical Warfare Material Detection System for Treaty Verification Using Gas Chromatography/Ion Mobility Spectrometry

    SBC: FEMTOSCAN CORP.            Topic: N/A

    ACCURATE CHEMICAL ANALYSIS AT POTENTIAL SITES OF CHEMICAL WARFARE (CW) AGENT MANUFACTURE, STORAGE OR USE IS OF GREAT VALUE FOR DETERMINATION OF CW TREATY VIOLATIONS AND FOR VERIFICATION OF DESTRUCTION OR REMOVAL OF CW AGENT SYSTEMS. RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN HAND- HELD GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY/ION MOBILITY SPECTROMETRY (GC/IMS) FOR DIRECT AIR MONITORING HAVE ILLUSTRATED THE POTENTIAL OF THIS TECHNIQUE FOR ...

  9. DESIGNING DISPLAYS AND DECISION SUPPORTS USING COGNITIVE SYSTEMS ENGINEERING

    SBC: KLEIN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    SCREENING BAGGAGE AND PASSENGERS FOR CONCEALED WEAPONS AND EXPLOSIVES REMAINS A SIGNIFICANT COMPONENT OF THE AVIATION SECURITY SYSTEM. RECENT TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES ENHANCE OUR ABILITY TO OBTAIN INFORMATION ABOUT THE SHAPE AND COMPOSITION OF CONCEALED ITEMS. HOWEVER, THE DEVELOPMENT OF DECISION SUPPORTS TO PRESENT THIS INFORMATION TO THE OPERATOR HAS LAGGED BEHIND. HOW A SYSTEM PRESENTS INFORMATIO ...

  10. NEURAL NETWORK AUGMENTED GPS/LORAN-C NAVIGATION SYSTEM

    SBC: Netrologic, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NETROLOGIC PROPOSES TO BUILD A NAVIGATION SYSTEM FOR SHIPS WHICH INTEGRATES GPS AND LORAN-C. THE GPS SYSTEM PROVIDES ASF ERROR CORRECTION TO LORAN-C SO THAT THE CORRECTED LORAN-C IS ABLE TO FURNISH NEAR GPS QUALITY GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION INFORMATION. IN AREAS WHERE DGPS IS AVAILABLE THE DGPS SIGNAL CAN BE FURNISHED AS A REFERENE TO REALIZE CORRESPONDING GAINS IN ACCURACY FOR CORRECTED LORAN0-C. A N ...
