  1. Development of Photoconductive Semiconductor Switch

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: DTRA102010

    OBJECTIVE: Advanced pulsed power switching technologies are needed to enable future nuclear weapon effects (NWE) experimentation capabilities and concepts for the active interrogation of special nuclear materials (SNM). The objective of this research is to advance the state of the art of high-gain optically-triggered switches by increasing the current density (to>1000 A/cm) and voltage hold-off ...

  2. Omnidirectional Photonic Electric Field Sensor for Diagnosing Nuclear Weapons Effects

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: DTRA102011

    High energy X-ray pulse sources used in nuclear weapons effects (NWE) tests can produce electromagnetic pulses through system generated electromagnetic pulse (SGEMP) effects. Improved diagnostics for NWE experiments is motivated by the need to accurately measure the test environment and to model the response of devices under test with reduced overall uncertainties in the presence of high energy X- ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...
