  1. Standoff Sensing for Low Volatility Chemicals Using Terahertz Radiation-Enhanced-Emission-of-Fluorescence

    SBC: Zomega Terahertz Corporation            Topic: DTRA092005

    We propose a new active optical method to measure time-domain waveform of THz pulse in the vicinity of the target in an omni-directional manner. This method utilizes the THz radiation-enhanced-emission-of-fluorescence from laser-induced air plasma to detect the THz field, which enables the standoff sensing for low volatility chemicals using THz spectroscopy. We have demonstrated its capability of ...

  2. CALIFORNIUM-252 SYSTEM FOR SINGLE EVENT UPSET TESTING OF MICROELECTRONICS.

    SBC: InterScience, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ADVANCES IN ELECTRONIC DEVICE TECHNOLOGY HAVE LED TO INCREASED PACKING DENSITIES WHILE POWER CONSUMPTION HAS DROPPED. IN GENERAL, THIS TREND IS BENEFICIAL TO AVIONICS AND SPACE APPLICATIONS EXCEPT THAT A NEW FAILURE MODE HAS ACCOMPANIED THIS MINIATURIZATION. IN HIGH ENERGY PARTICLE ENVIROMENTS, SUCH AS ENCOUNTERED IN SPACE, MICROELECTRONIC DEVICES HAVE BEEN SHOWN TO BE SUSCEPTIBLE TO TRANSIENT OR ...

  3. EXTRINSIC PHOTOCONDUCTIVITY SWITCHES USING CVD DIAMOND

    SBC: Vactronic Laboratory Equip Inc            Topic: N/A

    EXTRINSIC PHOTOCONDUCTIVITY SEMICONDUCTOR SWITCHES (PCSS) BASED ON CVD DIAMOND-FILM (DF) HAS BEEN DEVELOPED. DIAMOND MATERIAL POSSESSES SEVERAL ADVANTAGES SUCH AS HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY AND HIGH BREAKDOWN VOLTAGES. THE PCSS BASED ON CVD DIAMOND CAN BE SUPERIOR THAN ITS COUNTERPARTS (GAAS OR SI) BY EXPLOITING THESE ADVANTAGES. CONVENTIONAL PCSS'S BASED ON GAAS SUFFER FROM PROBLEMS SUCH AS THERMA ...

  4. SUBMARINE SHOCK LETHALITY STUDIES: AN OBJECTIVE APPROACH FOR LARGE STRAIN CALCULATIONS

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ADVANCED STRUCTURAL MATERIALS USED IN THE FABRICATION OF SUBMARINES CAN SUSTAIN LARGE STRAINS DURING THE FORMATION PROCESS CAUSED BY EXPLOSIVE LOADINGS. THE COMPUTATIONAL SOLID MECHANICS COMMUNITY HAS RECENTRLY RECOGNIZED SERIOUS SHORTCOMINGS IN CALCULATIONS USING MATERIAL MODELS IN THIS LARGE STRAIN REGION. BECAUSE OF THE IMPORTANCE OF CALCULATIONS IN UNDERSTANDING THE SHOCK RESPONSE OF SUBMARINE ...

  5. Modeling and Prediction of Ground Shock Induced by Penetrating Weapons in Spatially Random Geologic Media

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA04009

    We propose a stochastic-finite-element based methodology to address these requirements: (i) Characterize material variability; (ii) Quantify corresponding ground-shock variability; and (iii) Design instrumentation plan. The site is discretized into N finite-elements; rock properties over this domain are characterized as the components of an N-vector stochastic field. The probabilistic characterist ...

  6. High Fidelity Modeling of Building Collapse with Realistic Visualization of Resulting Damage and Debris

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082005

    An approach for performing high fidelity modeling for blast and progressive collapse simulations of buildings will be developed. The modeling approach will allow complete simulations of building response to be performed within several days of computing time on desktop PCs. An 'easy to use' modeling interface will also be demonstrated in this effort. All response regimes will be addressed includi ...
