  1. EMP AND HPM SUPPRESSION TECHNIQUES

    SBC: Integrated Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Survival of present day microelectronic circuits depends on their protection from self generated and external electromagnetic interference. This proposal is oriented toward the class of interference generally referred to as overvoltage transients. Means for mitigating these transients include gas discharge tubes, and various solid state devices. Each of these has their own advantages in particu ...

  2. Neural Optical Sensor for Countering the Proliferation of Biological and Chemical Weapons

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Physical Optics Corporation (POC)s proposes to develop a neural-optical sensor for biological and chemical (""NOSBC"") weapons, with vapor detection capability. The system will comprise a sensor head and a signal processing/display unit. The NOSBC will simultaneously perform multiple immunoassays with a one-second sensor response time; it will apply biometic fuzzy metrology to these parallel sig ...

  3. Increasing Bremsstrahlung Output with a Clean Diode

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

    The DM1 module that is a building block of DSWA's DECADE simulator has excellent electrical performance, but the final radiation pulse is erratic and often unsatisfactory. The probable cause is a parasitic current in ions, or through a diode plasma. This proposal is to evaluate a diode configuration that should suppress ions and plasma, namely a cathode of carbon fibers covered with cesium iodid ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. High Resolution Wind Forecasts Using Multi-Sensor Satellite Surface Characterization Data

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Mission Research Corporation (MRC) will develop a near real-time high resolution multi-sensor satellite surface characterization retrieval aand mesoscale model assimilation technique to predict land surface efffects on atmospheric dynamics. We will include time-varying land cover characteristics and will investigate incorporating satellite-based surface moisture and cloud liquid water data. Atmo ...

  6. Low Cost, Portable X-Ray Simulator Development

    SBC: North Star Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    We propose, in Phase I and Phase II, to build an X-ray simulator capable of easy transportation between sites which can be built for a low cost (

  7. Fully Equivalent Operational Model of SMMARC Chemistry

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The impacts of nuclear weapons effect can now only be simulated through the use of very complex and computationally intensive models. This limits the ability to perform thorough engagement investigations. Attempts to reduce model run times have previously traded prediction fidelity for speed reduction by simplifying models. We propose the application of a new innovative approach to accelerate t ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. An Integrated Visualization of Nuclear Weapons Effects for DIS Applications

    SBC: Visidyne, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    One of the most challenging problems in adding realism to the battlefield environment in DIS Exercises is treatment of the dynamic physical materials and processes resulting from battlefield munitions (i.e., battlefield smoke and dust, blast and shock damage to buildings, cratering of terrain and roadways, etc.). Currently, there is no alteration of terrain and cultural features due to nuclear we ...

  10. INCORPORATING HUMAN RESPONSE TO NUCLEAR EFFECTS INTO DISTRIBUTED INTERACTIVE SIMULATORS

    SBC: Horizons Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Present Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) simulators do not include provisions for battle hazards or degrading of weapons system effectiveness due to human response to them. HTI will design an Adaptive Response Filter (ARF) that will add human response degradation to any simulator on the DISNET without requiring any modification to the simulator or to the net. Every entity in a DIS simula ...
