  1. A Compact and Fast Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR) Spectroscopy System for Aerosol Combustion

    SBC: OPTICSLAH, LLC            Topic: DTRA182003

    To fully understand the combustion dynamics when chemical warfare agents are detonated, fast time-scale diagnostics are needed. While computational modeling may provide insight into the different processes, experimental measurements are needed to verify and validate these models. Since the detonation or combustion of chemical agents can result in optically thick fireballs, innovative techniques mu ...

  2. Advanced Solutions for Radiation Susceptibility Analysis & Prediction

    SBC: LUCID CIRCUIT, INC.            Topic: DTRA162006

    With the advent of high-density low-power sub-20nm technology processes and circuits with tens-of-billions of transistors, radiation-induced single-event effects present a new set of design challenges for terrestrial applications. Developing reliable single-event effect resilient microelectronics in these modern technology nodes is a resource and time-intensive endeavor that further requires valid ...

  3. Application of Ultra-Low Cost Differential Pressure Sensors to the Large N Acoustic Sensor Problem

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172001

    TDA Research, Inc. (TDA), designed, built, and tested a dense array of 100 very low cost infrasonic sensors. Due to their low cost (1/100x-1/10x the cost of other infrasound sensors), they can be economically deployed in very large numbers; such large arrays can gather more information than a few expensive sensors. They are sensitive from 0.1 Hz - 100 Hz down to 0.08 Pa. We tested the sensors in s ...

  4. Automated pattern recognition methods to identify nuclear explosions

    SBC: Acorn Science & Innovation, Inc.            Topic: DTRA182005

    Reliable automated pattern recognition in the current system is limited by excessive noise and clutter combined with insufficient and/or ambiguous features. Our team consisting of AcornSI and Leidos thus propose a multi-step approach based on the combined effects of improved detection, feature extraction, phase identification, and global association. A key innovation here is creating a new classif ...

  5. Continuous Wave Compressive Sensing Terahertz Spectrometer for Low Vapor Pressure Standoff Detection

    SBC: Princeton Nanotechnology Systems LLC            Topic: DTRA092005

    PNTS proposes to develop a truly novel implementation of eye-safe terahertz (THz) spectroscopy that is unprecedented in the standoff detection regime for accuracy, low cost, and portability. PNTS has teamed with SC&A, Inc., and researchers from the University of Memphis to create a world class team of research and development personnel. We are proposing a continuous wave terahertz (THz-CW) spect ...

  6. 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 ...

  9. DETERRENCE TO STRATEGIC DEFENSE

    SBC: Econ, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ADVANCE OF TECHNOLOGIES MAY MAKE DEFENSE AGAINST BALLISTIC MISSLES TECHNICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE. A NATIONAL POLICY DEBATE HAS BEGUN ON THE DESIRABILITY OF MAKING A TRANSITION FROM STRATEGIC DETERRANCE TO STRATEGIC DEFENSE. THE DEBATE IS AT PRESENT HIGHLY CONFUSING AND UNSTRUCTURED, SINCE THE VARIOUS ARGUMENTS FOR AND AGAINST THAT TRANSITION ARE BASED ON DIFFERING ASSUMPTIONS, OFTEN TA ...

  10. Digital Data Recorder for Gauges in High Speed Weapons During Survivability Testing

    SBC: Diversified Technical Systems, Inc.            Topic: DTRA092014

    The ability to collect data for conventional munitions in conditions of increasing acceleration and duration for hard target penetration is needed. Survivability and functionality of an electronic data recorder exposed to these acceleration levels (up 120,000 g) and shock loads is necessary as a result of higher velocity weapons and the use of precursor shape charge warheads to soften the target ...
