  1. ADVANCED METHODS FOR MODELING TEAM EFFECTS ON CONTROL-ROOM OPERATOR PERFORMANCE IN REAL-TIME

    SBC: ASCA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH SEEKS THE DEVELOPMENT AND DEMONSTRATION OF A MODEL THAT REPRESENTS THE GROUP DECISION-MAKING PROCESSES TAKING PLACE INSIDE THE CONTROL ROOM OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT UNDER BOTH NORMAL AND ABNORMAL OPERATING CONDITIONS. COGNITIVE DECISIONS, TEAM EFFECTS, AND DYNAMIC FEATURES ARE AMONG THE MAJOR ISSUES THAT WILL BE ADDRESSED IN THE PROJECT. THE BASIC TOOL TO BE USED IS THE INFLUENCE DIA ...

  2. A FIBER OPTIC DOSIMETER FOR MEASUREMENT OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS EFFECTS

    SBC: Pda Engineering            Topic: N/A

    FILMS OF RADIOCHROMIC DOSIMETRY MATERIAL COUPLED WITH FILTERS PROVIDE BOTH DOSE AND SPECTRAL INFORMATION ON NUCLEAR TESTS, A SUBSTANTIAL MONITORING CAPABILITY. THE DIAGNOSTIC DEVICES, HOWEVER, OCCUPY SUBSTANTIAL VOLUME; THE MATERIALS BLEACH DUE TO RADIATION DAMAGE AND ARE PRONE TO DYE MIGRATION. ALL CONSTITUTE SIGNIFICANT LIMITATIONS. A FIBER OPTIC DOSIMETER IS PROPOSED FOR UNDERGROUND NUCLEAR TES ...

  3. A FUEL/AIR DRIVE FLUX COMPRESSOR POWER UNIT FOR ELECTROTHERMAL GUNS

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The Ktech Team proposes a feasibility study of a fuel/air driven flux compression power unit (FCPU) for electric guns. Through variations of inductance gradients and through changes in scale, the proposed technology will be applicable to both electrothermal/chemical and electromagnetic guns. In the Phase 1 effort, we develop simulation models to predict the performance of the flux compression po ...

  4. A High Temporal Resolution In-material Gauge for the Measurement of Non-reactive Shocks and Detonation Waves in Explosives.

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A FEASIBILITY STUDY IS PROPOSED FOR AN ENCAPSULATED, HIGH TEMPORAL RESOLUTION, BROAD RANGE PIEZOELECTRIC POLYMER STRESS GAUGE TO MEASURE SHOCK-TO-DETONATION TRANSITIONS IN EXPLOSIVES AND PROPELLANTS. THESE MEASUREMENTS ARE KEY TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF EFFECTIVE "GROWTH TO DETONATION" MODELS WHICH ARE A NECESSARY ELEMENT IN THE ASSESSMENT OF THE VULNERABILITY AND/OR DEVELOPMENT OF TACTICAL SYSTEMS INC ...

  5. A Megapixel Gamma Camera for Arms Control Verification

    SBC: Lexitek Inc            Topic: N/A

    Lexitek proposes to develop an imaging gamma-ray detector with 1024 x 1024 pixels for arms control verification. The proposed detector significantly enhances the resolution of fissionable material distribution without compromising energy resolution. The detector consists of a scintillating crystal and associated sensors which determine the energy and position of the scintillation with high spat ...

  6. Analysis, Mitigation, and Testing Capability for Antenna Tracking in Disturbed Propagation Environments

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    ANTENNA TRACKING SYSTEMS FOR SATELLITE COMMUNICATIONS LINKS ARE SUBJECT TO PERFORMANCE DEGRADATION IN THE PRESENCE OF SIGNAL PROPAGATION DISTURBANCES. THE EXTENT OF THIS DEGRADATION AND THE CORRESPONDING SENSITIVITY TO TRACKING SYSTEM CONFIGURATIONS AND DESIGN PARAMETERS HAS NOT BEEN QUANTIFIED. SYSTEM SPECIFICATIONS AND RECEIVER DESIGNS DEVELOPED IN THE ABSENCE OF THIS INFORMATION MAY RESULT IN U ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. AN NWE PROPAGATION SIMULATOR FOR HF TRANSCEIVERS

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MISSION RESEARCH CORPORATION (MRC) PROPOSES TO BUILD HF-NEPS, AN HF CHANNEL SIMULATOR FOR BENCH-TOP TESTING OF HF TRANSCEIVERS. THE SIMULATOR WOULD DISTORT AND DELAY ANALOG HF SIGNALS AS IF THESE HAD PASSED THROUGH IONOSPHERIC REGIONS DISTURBED BY HIGH ALTITUDE NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS. THE FREQUENCY SELECTIVE HF CHANNEL MODEL UNDERLYING THIS HARDWARE SIMULATOR WILL ACCOMMODATE THE HF CHANNEL SPECIFICAT ...

  10. A Plasma Opening Switch Model for Power Flow Electrical Circuit Design

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

    A NEW PLASMA OPENING SWITCH (POS) MODEL IS PROPOSED FOR IMPLEMENTATION INTO AN ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT COMPUTER CODE. THE UNIQUE APPROACH DESCRIBED IN THIS PROPOSAL INCORPORATES A SEGMENTED SHEATH MODEL INTO THE EXISTING MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMICG (MHD) CODEPRISM DEVELOPED BY BERKELEY RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC. THE VERSION PROPOSED FOR PHASE I INCLUDES 1) TWO-DIMENSIONAL MHD MOTION OF THE BULK PLASMA; 2) RELA ...
