  1. A NOVEL FIELD PROGRAMMABLE GATE ARRAY FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Mission Research Corporation proposes the development of a unique FPGA (field programmable gate array) for applications in space and other military and civilian environments requiring the versatility of reconfigurability with retention of the configuration in an unpowered state. The FPGA will be capable of being configured once and retaining that configuration for a minimum of 10 years even with ...

  3. Validation and Verification of Nonlinear Structural Dynamic Models

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The recent DNA-sponsored conference on ¿Verification and Validation of Nonlinear Structural Dynamic Codes,¿ September 1993, highlighted the need for reliable models as well as codes. At the present time there are no generally available software tools for utilizing experimental data to correct and refine models implemented on general-purpose codes such as DYNA3D. Nor are there tools available f ...

  4. A TIME-RESOLVED HARD X-RAY SPECTROMETER

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

    FOR TESTING OF ELECTRONICS IT IS IMPORTANT HOW THE X-RAY ENERGY SPECTRUM FROM A BREMSSTRAHLUNG FLASH X-RAY SIMULATOR CHANGES WITH TIME. HOWEVER, ONLY THE TIME-INTEGRATED SPECTRUM CAN BE MEASURED CONVENIENTLY, USING DIFFERENTIALLY FILTERED TLD'S. THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A TIME-DEPENDENT VERSION OF A DIFFERENTIALLY FILTERED SPECTROMETER, BY REPLACING THE TLD'S WITH PHOTOCONDUCTIVE ELEMENTS SUCH ...

  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. SAMPLING INLET FOR FIRE/EXPLOSION SAFETY OF CWC TREATY VERIFICATION INSTRUMENTS

    SBC: Rvm Scientific, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    One of the Operation Directorate's top ten challenges is the development of handheld gas chromatography (GC) instrumentation for CW treaty verification. Toward this challenge, DNA has recently developed and reduced to practice innovative new technologies for low power, fast GC. An unsolved technical issue which still remains with small, portable GC devices is how to conduct fast and automated va ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. STUDY OF ION MASS EFFECTS ON LONG CONDUCTION TIME PLASMA OPENING SWITCHES USING RESONANT DIAGNOSTIC TECHNIQUES

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    PLASMA EROSION OPENING SWITCHES (PEOS) ARE FINDING MANY APPLICATIONS IN PULSE POWER MULTIPLICATION AND THE SWITCHING OF INDUCTIVE STORAGE DEVICES FOR PULSED POWER APPLICATIONS. SUCH A SWITCH OPERATES BY USING AN EXTERNAL PLASMA SOURCE TO SHORT A GAP WHICH CONDUCTS CURRENT FROM A LOW VOLTAGE CAPACITIVE SOURCE FOR 100 NANOSECOND TIME SCALES. AT A CRITICAL CURRENT DENSITY THE PLASMA ERODES AND THE SW ...
