  1. Portable Fiber Optic Interferometer

    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 a ...

  2. Diamond Fast Opening Switch for High Voltage, High Average Power X-Ray, Elec

    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 ...

  5. High Voltage, High Power Diamond Solid-State Switch for Pulsed Power and Other Applications

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes a three phase effort with the ultimate goal of producing a marketable diamond switch suitable for several pulsed power and other applications in the defence arena. The presently used spark gaps have several drawbacks including switch jitter, large and variable inductance, lifetime and physical size. A low inductance solid-state switch capable ...

  6. Diamond Real Time, Integrating Dosimeters

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop a new class of real time integrating diamond radiation dosimeters. In Phase I AASC will demonstrate the feasibility of using diamond radiation detectors for monitoring personnel radiation dose. The sensitivity of these detectors will be determined and a concept design for a pocket real time dosimeter will be completed. The Phase ...

  7. 2-Dimensional, Microchannel Plate, Anti-scatter Focusing Grid for Superior X-ray Imaging Instruments

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop a new class of x-ray imaging instruments based on a 2-dimensional, square-pore microchannel plate technology. This square-pore technology could lead to higher sensitivity x-ray telescopes in astronomy, wide field of view sensors for the BMDO mission and to superior anti-scatter grids to enhance contrast and resolution in mammography s ...

  8. A Vacuum Arc Ion Thruster for Space Propulsion

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) and its co-operative partner, the Plasma Applications Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (PAG/LBNL) propose to develop and commercialize a sub-kW vacuum arc ion thruster for electric propulsion and other government and commercial applications. The proposed thruster will use a solid propellant, which offers several advantages over Xenon or ...

  9. Feasibility of Using a Systems Analytic Technique to Model the Critical Processess Supporting Proliferation of Weapons..

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal investigates the feasibility of using a systems analytic approach to model the critical processes supporting proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. It uses as a framework for synthesis a previously developed systems analysis model of biological weapons proliferation. The proposed approach consists of four tasks to: 1) extend the BW analytical process to encompass all WMD, 2) d ...

  10. Feasibility of Using Impulse Radar to Detect and Identify Concealed Weapons

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of using impulse radar techniques to detect and identify concealed weapons. It relies on the fact that a radar impulse will excite natural electromagnetic resonances which characterize the size, shape and material composition of an object. These resonances are present in the scattered transient return from the object and can be extracted by algo ...
