  2. Range-Improving, Mid-IR Time Domain Spectroscopic Transceiver for SNM

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA082004

    To address the DTRA need for standoff detection and identification of special nuclear materials (SNM), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Mid-IR Time Domain Spectroscopic Transceiver (MI-TDST) system. The proposed MI-TDST device operation is based on capturing the characteristic signature of molecules in the environment surrounding SNM. Decomposition of these molecules (id ...

  3. Directed Mono-Energetic Gamma Source

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: DTRA08001

    For long-range active interrogation of Special Nuclear Materials, an intense beam of mono-energetic directed gamma rays is required. In Phase I of this project, RadiaBeam developed the design for such a source, based on Inverse Compton Scattering (ICS), and determined its feasibility. The key innovation in our source is a novel Interaction Region system design, which significantly increases the av ...

  4. The Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects on Nano-technology Microelectronics

    SBC: ROBUST CHIP INC.            Topic: DTRA082001

    Robust Chip Inc. (RCI) and Stanford University (Stanford) propose a project with two main parts: 1. Exploration and development of a combined layout and circuit design methodology for complete protections against both single and multiple single event errors with a minimal circuit and layout overhead. 2. Extension of a unique, combined circuit-substrate, modeling technique for radhard design in ult ...

  5. Engineering Models for Damage to Structural Components Subjected to Internal Blast Loading

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08006

    Weidlinger Associates Inc. proposes to develop effective technology for simulating explosive detonations within civil buildings where the propagation of airblast and failure of weak internal walls are strongly coupled. We will conduct a field test program designed to complement other internal detonation testing efforts such as DTRA''s Distinct Cobra, expanding the available database. We will perfo ...

  6. High Fidelity Modeling of Building Collapse with Realistic Visualization of Resulting Damage and Debris

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082005

    An approach for performing high fidelity modeling for blast and progressive collapse simulations of buildings will be developed. The modeling approach will allow complete simulations of building response to be performed within several days of computing time on desktop PCs. An 'easy to use' modeling interface will also be demonstrated in this effort. All response regimes will be addressed includi ...

  7. Alternative PNT Augmentations for Handhelds

    SBC: YOTTA NAVIGATION CORPORATION            Topic: NGA07002

    During Phase I, Yotta Navigation developed a proof-of-concept version of the MOUTman, envisioned to be a rugged, secure, high-precision, handheld real-time navigation system suitable for military operations. This system took advantage of Yotta Navigation expertise in several areas: inertial and GPS-assisted navigation, user interface design, efficient integration of components from mainstream supp ...

  8. Diamond Opening-Switch-Based X-Ray Simulator

    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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Ultrafast Gas Curtain and Wire-Reinforced X-Ray Window Debris Shields

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop two components of a three-component, survivable debris shield for large area test exposures to cold (1-5keV) x-rays. These elements also have commercial potential in accelerators and in radiography. The elements are: an ultrafast gas curtain designed to be located close to the x-ray source to deflect plasma debris as well as ~um siz ...
