  1. 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 ...

  2. NEXT GENERATION ULTRA WIDEBAND (UWB) INTRUSTION DETECTION RADAR FOR THE PROTECTION OF NUCLEAR FACILITIES

    SBC: Anro Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IMPULSE RADAR WHICH DERIVES ITS "MAIN BANG", A TRANSIENT, BY EXCITING AN ANTENNA CAVITY WITH A SUBNANOSECOND PULSE HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BE VERY EFFECTIVE FOR INTRUSION DETECTION. A RECENT SBIR PROGRAM COMPLETED FOR DNA RESULTED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW LOW COST, LIGHT WEIGHT, RADAR SENSOR FOR THE PROTECTION OF NUCLEAR SITES NOW BEING MARKETED COMMERCIALLY. DURING THE DNA FIELD EXPERIMENTS ON ANIMA ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. FAST-RISE HIGH PRESSURE GAUGE FOR LONG-DURATION NUCLEAR AIRBLAST

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    KTECH PROPOSES TO DEVELOP OPTICAL HOPKINSON BAR PRESSURE GAUGES FOR MEASUREMENT OF AIRBLAST ON UNDERGROUND NUCLEAR EVENTS. THE BARS WILL BE MADE OF SINGLE CRYSTAL SAPPHIRE WHICH HAS A MEASURED YIELD STRENGTH IN EXCESS OF 10 GPA. THESE GAUGES WILL HAVE A RISE TIME OF ABOUT 2 US OF DATA. DURING PHASE I, WE WILL CONSTRUCT AND CALIBRATE A STRESS-INDUCED BIREFRINGENCE GAUGE (SIBG) WHICH WOULD NEED NO E ...

  7. High-Sensitivity Military GPS Receivers for Ground-Users

    SBC: MAYFLOWER COMMUNICATIONS COMPANY, INC.            Topic: NGA07001

    The overall objective of the HSGR Program is to develop a high sensitivity military GPS receiver to provide reliable GPS navigation, under weak GPS signal conditions, to ground based military GPS users. Mayflower’s approach to meet this HSGR program objective is to design, develop and incorporate “high-sensitivity” signal processing enhancements (namely, Vector Tracking (VT) and Multi-bit GP ...

  8. INSTRUMENTATION-DEVELOPMENT OF PORTABLE MEMORY RADIATION EFFECTS TESTER

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    UNDER THIS EFFORT, WE WILL DEVELOP A PORTABLE MEMORY TESTER UNIQUELY DESIGNED TO PERFORM THE TYPES OF TESTS REQUIRED FOR RADIATION EFFECTS CHARACTERIZATION. SPECIFICALLY, IT WILL PERFORM TESTS TO CHARATERIZE SINGLE EVENT PHENOMENA (SEP), TOTAL DOSE IONIZING EFFECTS, DOSE RATE, AND RAPID ANNEALING PHENOMENA. IT WILL COMBINE KEY FEATURES OF GENERAL PURPOSE ASIC TESTERS AND DEDICATED MEMORY TESTERS R ...

  9. THE EFFECTIVENESS AND FEASIBILITY OF LOW ENERGY LASERS IN NUCLEAR WEAPONS SECURITY

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    LOW-ENERGY LASER TECHNOLOGY HAS THE POTENTIAL TO SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THE EFFENCIENCY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS SECURITY OPERATIONS. SUCH LASERS, EMPLOYED IN EITHER AUTOMATED OR REMOTELY MANNED CONFIGURATIONS, CAN SUPPLEMENT CURRENT PHYSICAL SECURITY MEASURES BY PROVIDING THREE NON-LETHAL RESPONSE OPTIONS: (1) WARN INTRUDERS THAT THEY HAVE BEEN DETECTED AND ARE ENTERING A SECURE AREA, ...
