  1. Diamond Opening-Switch-Based X-Ray Simulator

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop an all-solid-state, compact, portable, multi-gigawatt poer modulator for electron and ion beam diodes, high power microwave and x-ray sources. This modulator is based on Inductive Energy Store (IES) using an array of Diamond Opening Switches for power compression. Because power amplification using IES requires a much smaller volume ...

  2. Compact, Rugged, Flexible Fiber Optic Interferometer for Sensitive Gas and P

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop a new type of interferometer that is compact and portable and can be used to make in-situ measurements of gases and plasmas. This interferometer uses polarization maintaining optical fibers and diode lasers to duplicate the capabilities of existing Mach-Zender interferometers that use dicrete optical elements such as mirrors, lenses ...

  3. Advanced nanocomposite scintillator for gamma radiation detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: DTRA08005

    Gamma radiation detection has traditionally required single crystal materials that are difficult to produce consistently on an industrial scale. Agiltron has developed a new class of scintillator materials based on composites containing nanoparticles. These so-called nanocomposites exhibit radiation detection characteristics superior to currently available single crystal scintillators. In Phase I ...

  4. A HIGH RANGE PARTICLE VELOCITY TRANSDUCER DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS AN ESTABLISHED NEED FOR A SIMPLE ROBUST TRANSDUCER TO MEASURE PARTICLE VELOCITY IN SEVERE BLAST AND SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS SUCH AS NUCLEAR AND HIGH EXPLOSIVE TESTS. A GAGE CONCEPT IS PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPMENT, BASED ON THE PROVEN MEASUREMENT PRINCIPLES USED IN THE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL DX GAGE, BUT RECONFIGURED MECHANICALLY AND ELECTRICALLY TO WITHSTAND THE HARSH SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS. THE CONCEPT RE ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE DOWNHOLE SIGNAL CONDITIONING MODULE

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HIGH RANGE (200,000 G) ACCELEROMETERS ARE THE ONLY TRANSDUCERS THAT PROVIDE THE REQUIRED LONG-TERM DATA IN THE ENVIRONMENTS OF INTEREST TO THE BLAST AND SHOCK COMMUNITY. THESE GAGES HAVE A VERY LARGE DYNAMIC RANGE AND NOISE OFTEN MASKS THE LATE TIME (BUT EXTREMELY IMPORTANT) DATA. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A CLOSE COUPLED LOGARITHMIC GAIN SIGNAL CONDITIONING SYSTEM THAT WILL CORRECT THE LATE TIME NOIS ...

  6. HARDENED IMPROVED DYNAMIC RESPONSE DECOY

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A FEASIBILITY STUDY OF IMPROVING DECOY PENETRATION AID (PENAID) PERFORMANCE BY SUPPLYING MEANS TO 1) ALLOW FOR DUAL CENTER OF GRAVITY (CG) LOCATION, THEREBY ENABLING INDEPENDENT FULFILLMENT OF IMPULSE BALANCING AND REENTRY STABILITY REQUIREMENTS; AND/OR 2) COUNTERACT DECOY CONING BY SENSING ITS PRESENCE, AND CORRECTING THE ANGULAR MOMENTUM OF THE DECOY TO ELIMINATE CONING.

  7. Multilayer Capacitors Utilizing Phase Change Ceramics for High Energy Storage

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    For this Phase I SBIR program, high volumetric efficiency, energy storage capacitors are proposed using phase change ceramics. These materials are nonlinear dielectrics that make use of electric field induced antiferroelectric to ferroelectric phase transition to store more energy per volume than is possible with linear dielectrics (10 J/cm3 compared to 2 J/cm3). Furthermore phase change materia ...

  8. Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects in High-Speed Compound Semiconductor Microelectronics

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA08003

    For ultra high-speed, ultra low-power applications in DoD space and weapons systems, devices and circuits fabricated from III–V semiconductor compounds offer significant advantages over silicon-based technology. However, the uncertainty in single-event-effect (SEE) response of compound semiconductor technologies forces the use of empirically-based hardening techniques with penalties in increased ...

  9. Advanced HTI Payload Based on Hi-Therm Materials

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    On-going developmental programs have produced munitions systems which are capable of penetrating and functioning within hardened fixed ground targets. They are equipped with high explosive and fragmenting warheads to achieve target defeat but in the process produce unaccceptable target venting and agent dispersal. The need exists for a warhead payload which can effectively defeat chemical and bi ...

  10. DEVELOPMENT OF AN EULERIAN FINITE ELEMENT CODE

    SBC: Intelligent Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT NUMERICAL COMPUTATIONS TO DESCRIBE NUCLEAR GROUND SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS, NUCLEAR CRATER FORMATION, IMPACT DYNAMICS AND PENETRATION MECHANISMS PRESENTLY EMPLOY EULERIAN-BASED FINITE DIFFERENCE CODES BECAUSE OF THEIR ABILITY TO MODEL THE MASS FLUX PHENOMENA IN TRACKING MATERIAL MOVEMENT THROUGH THE DISCRETIZED SPACE. THE FINITE DIFFERENCE CODES SUFFER IN COMPARISON TO FINITE ELEMENT CODES, HOWE ...
