  1. BIAXIAL INTERFACE STRESS TRANSDUCER FOR HIGH OVERPRESSURES- DEVELOPMENT

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

    DEFINITION OF THE STRUCTURE-MEDIA INTERACTION (SMI) LOADS ON A BURIED STRUCTURE IS ONE OF THE LARGEST SOURCES OF UNCERTAINTY IN ANALYZING THE SURVIVABILITY OF STRATEGIC STRUCTURES. ADVANCEMENT OF THE STATEOF-THE-ART IN THE MODELING OF SMI BEHAVIOR IS HAMPERED BY A LIMITED DATA BASE WHICH IS CONFINED TO OVERPRESSURES MUCH SMALLER THAN THOSE CURRENTLY OF INTEREST. THIS EFFORT PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AND ...

  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. 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 ...

  8. 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, ...

  10. PLASMA CATHODE FOR HIGH POWER PHOTOIONIZED LASERS AND PLASMA SWITCHES

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    FUTURE SYSTEMS EMPLOYING PULSED POWER TECHNOLOGY WILL REQUIRE SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT IN THE CURRENT STATE OF THE ART OF PULSED POWER DEVICES. IN PARTICULAR, HIGH VOLTAGE REPETITIVE SWITCHES ARE NEEDED WHICH SIGNIFICANTLY GO BEYOND THE PRESENT CAPABILITIES OF KNOWN SWITCHES. FUTURE SWITCHING TECHNOLOGY NEEDS TO HANDLE VOLTAGES RANGING FROM HUNDREDS OF KILOVOLTS TO MEGAVOLTS, HUNDREDS OF KILOAMPERE ...
