  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. Ultrafast Gas Curtain and Wire-Reinforced X-Ray Window Debris Shields

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop two components of a three-component, survivable debris shield for large area test exposures to cold (1-5keV) x-rays. These elements also have commercial potential in accelerators and in radiography. The elements are: an ultrafast gas curtain designed to be located close to the x-ray source to deflect plasma debris as well as ~um siz ...

  4. Annular Gas Jet Anode for Decade

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: DTRA04010

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to replace the current return rods in the anode of the plasma radiation source (PRS) load, with an annular, supersonic gas jet: an innovation that could drastically reduce source region debris along the line-of-sight (LOS) of the test object, in a z-pinch, soft x-ray, weapons effects simulator, and make the debris mitigation system (DMS) simpler ...

  5. A GENERALIZED STRESS PARAMETER METHODOLOGY FOR THE SIMULATION FIDELITY EVALUATION OF SDI SYSTEM UGTS

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESIGNING A NUCLEAR SURVIVABLE, MILITARY SYSTEM DOES NOT CONSIST ONLY OF PUTTING TOGETHER "HARD" SYSTEM COMPONENTS. THE SUBSYSTEM AND SYSTEM MUST BE TESTED TO VERIFY HARDNESS. GIVEN THE DIFFICULT IN SIMULATING NUCLEAR ENVIRONMENTS, HARDNESS VERIFICATION IS PROBABLY THE MOST DIFFICULT PART OF A SYSTEM NUCLEAR SURVIVABILITY PROGRAM. IN ADDITION, SPECIFYING SYSTEM COMPONENT HARDENING REQUIREMENTS CAN ...

  6. Passive multi-view, multi-channel detection of highly obscured targets

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA04001

    Under our Phase I SBIR effort, and also under a complementary Arete Associates IR&D-funded airborne program, Areté successfully defined and performed preliminary airborne, long-standoff, demonstration of critical elements of novel, passive, multi-view, multi-channel algorithms for performing FOPEN against targets highly occluded by foliage. During Phase II, through the Phase II option, Arete prop ...

  7. Waterborne Transport Modeling Capability

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: DTRA05013

    We propose to develop a computational model and associated software library to calculate the transport and dispersion (T&D) of hazardous materials into and through the water. The model is developed for incorporation into HPAC and will compliment its existing atmospheric T&D model for CBRN (including toxic industrial substances) releases. We will investigate existing T&D models including those deve ...

  8. A CRYOGENIC DEBRIS SHIELD FOR HIGH-FLUENCE SOFT X-RAY TESTING

    SBC: BERKELEY RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    A DEBRIS SHIELD MADE FROM SOLID HYDROGEN TRANSMITS MOST OF THE SOFT X-RAYS AROUND 1 KEV PRODUCED BY A PLASMA RADIATION SOURCE. THE PROPOSAL SETS OUT TO VERIFY EXPERIMENTALLY THAT SUCH A DEBRIS SHIELD IS TECHNOLOGICALLY FEASIBLE, AND ESTIMATES THEORETICALLY THE BEHAVIOR OF THE SHIELD IN A TEST ENVIRONMENT.

  10. Efficient Digitization of Nuclear Fireball Film

    SBC: CARPENTER RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The objectives of the proposed work are to develop the technical feasibility and detailed requirements for new methods and technology to decrease, substantially, the cost and time required to digitize and store high-speed, high-resolution film without sacrificing the spatial and grayscale depth of the original film. The work will be aimed at improvements that would make it practical to digitize a ...
