The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. OF APPARENT INTEREST TO THE DEFENSE NUCLEAR AGENCY (DNA) IS THE ABILITY TO DETECT THE LOCATION OF TUNNEL BORING MACHINES(TBM).

    SBC: Utah Geophysical, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OF APPARENT INTEREST TO THE DEFENSE NUCLEAR AGENCY (DNA) IS THE ABILITY TO DETECT THE LOCATION OF TUNNEL BORING MACHINES(TBM). THESE TYPES OF DEVICES ARE USED TO DRILL TUNNELS FOR MILITARY PURPOSES, SUCH AS THE STORAGE OF NUCLEAR DEVICES AND THE CONSTRUCTION OF MISSILE SILOS. BY LOCATING TBM'S IN OPERATION, UNFRIENDLY FORCES COULD IDENTIFY POTENTIAL MILITARY TARGETS. IT IS THEREFORE OF INTEREST TO ...

  2. THE EFFECT OF PRESHOCK LOADING ON THE RESPONSE OF NTS TUFF

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PRESHOCKED PRECONDITIONING OF TUFF MAY OCCUR IN TWO MANNERS AT THE NEVADA TEST SITE. FIRST, THE MATERIAL IS "PRESHOCKED" IN A LINEOF-SIGHT TYPE UNDERGROUND NUCLEAR TEST BY THE FIRST WAVE PASSAGE. THE SECOND MANNER MAY OCCUR AS A RESULT OF AREAL SPACE LIMITATIONS WHEN A SECOND EVENT IS SITED WITHIN A REGION OF PRESHOCKED MATERIAL. UNDER CERTAIN LOAD-UNLOADED CONDITIONS THE MATERIAL STRENGTH MAY BE ...

  3. UNDRAINED SHEAR BEHAVIOR OF SATURATED JOINTED ROCKS AT DEEP BASING CONDITIONS

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SHEAR DISPLACEMENT ALONG ROCK MASS DISCONTINUITIES (JOINTS) UNDER SATURATED, UNDRAINED CONDITIONS IS ONE OF THE CRITICAL FAILURE MODES FOR A DYNAMICALLY LOADED DEEP BASE STRUCTURE. THE FAILURE MODE HAS NOT BEEN EXPERIMENTALLY SIMULATED FOR DEEP BASE CONDITIONS. THE COMBINED APPLICATION OF NORMAL AND SHEAR STRESSES AT DYNAMIC RATES, WITHOUT PORE PRESSURE DRAINAGE, IS LIKELY TO PRODUCE HIGH PORE PRE ...

  4. LABORATORY STUDY OF EXTENSION FAILURE IN NEVADA TEST SITE TUFFS

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CALCULATED GROUND MOTION FROM NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS PREDICT THAT AT LOCATIONS NEAR THE CAVITY THE ROCK FAILURE SURFACE WILL BE ENCOUNTERED IN EXTENSION DURING LATER STAGES OF UNLOAD. THE RESULTING HOOP FRACTURES WILL PRODUCE A FAILED ROCK ZONE SURROUNDING THE CAVITY. HIGH PRESSURE CAVITY GASES COULD INITIATE A HYDRAULIC FRACTURE THROUGH THE FRACTURE ROCK WHICH, UNDER THE WORST CONDITION, WOULD LEAD T ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF A RESIDUAL IN-SITU STRESS GAUGE

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    QUANTITATIVE VERIFICATION OF THE RESIDUAL IN-SITU STRESS FIELD WHICH CREATES THE CONTAINMENT CAGE IS NEEDED TO ASSESS THE FACTOR OF SAFETY AGAINST HYDRAULIC FRACTURING FROM THE CAVITY WALL. PHASE I WILL ESTABLISH THE FEASIBLITY OF DEVELOPING A PASSIVE STRESS GAUGE, ABSENT OF ACTIVE INSTRUMENTATION, AND CAPABLE OF RECORDING THE RESIDUAL IN-SITU STRESS FIELD IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE NUCLEAR DEVICE ...

  6. DYNAMIC RESPONSE OF PILES IN SATURATED SOIL

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH PROGRAM WILL STUDY SOIL-PILE FOUNDATION INTERACTION INDUCED BY THE DETONATION OF CONVENTIONAL WARPONS. THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF THE PROGRM IS TO ESTABLISH A SET OF GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR FOUNDATION DESIGN OF FUTURE STRATEGIC STRUCTURES AS WELL AS THE ASSESSMENT OF THE VULNERABILITY OF EXISTING STRUCTURES. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL INVOLVE ANALYSIS OF THE EXISTING EXPERIMENTAL DATA, ...

  8. Miniature, Handheld Chemical Warfare Material Detection System for Treaty Verification Using Gas Chromatography/Ion Mobility Spectrometry

    SBC: FEMTOSCAN CORP.            Topic: N/A

    ACCURATE CHEMICAL ANALYSIS AT POTENTIAL SITES OF CHEMICAL WARFARE (CW) AGENT MANUFACTURE, STORAGE OR USE IS OF GREAT VALUE FOR DETERMINATION OF CW TREATY VIOLATIONS AND FOR VERIFICATION OF DESTRUCTION OR REMOVAL OF CW AGENT SYSTEMS. RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN HAND- HELD GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY/ION MOBILITY SPECTROMETRY (GC/IMS) FOR DIRECT AIR MONITORING HAVE ILLUSTRATED THE POTENTIAL OF THIS TECHNIQUE FOR ...

  9. 220 Watt, Man-Portable, Chemical Hydride Based Fuel Cell System for Arms Control Applications

    SBC: TRULITE TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    "Now that reliable, robust, commercial proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) are available, the problem has shifted to fuel storage. PEMFCs function most efficiently (>50%) when supplied with pure hydrogen. Unfortunately, storing large quantitiesof hydrogen in a compact, lightweight form has proven to be very difficult. Most of the hydrogen storage methods that have been developed for fu ...

  10. Next Generation Blast Simulation

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: DTRA092015

    With the current state of world events, the threat of explosives used against high-value targets is more pronounced than ever before. As a result, simulation of blast events and their effects on structures has become an increasingly vital capability. Current blast simulations on Central Processing Units (CPU) resources require a significant amount of computational time, limiting their overall valu ...
