  1. Integrated Multi-mode Handheld RIID

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA152007

    The goal of the project is to develop a handheld instrument that detects, identifies, and categorizes radioactive sources based on gamma, thermal-, and fast-neutron signatures. Existing radioisotope identification devices (RIIDs) are typically biased toward gamma spectroscopy; some instruments may use an additional inefficient neutron counter in form of a He-3 tube. The recent development of mat ...

  2. Memory Instrumentation and Performance Simulation (MIPS)

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172003

    Next-generation high-performance computing (HPC) hardware, such as the Intel Xeon Phi Knights Landing Many-Integrated-Core processor, provide new deep memory architectures that offer the promise of increased performance. The challenge in taking full advantage of this architecture is selecting which data structures will be placed in the high-bandwidth memory. Optimizing data structure placement in ...

  8. Compact Laser Drivers for Photoconductive Semicond

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: DTRA16A004

    For effective protection against radiated threats, it is important to understand not only the physics of the threats, but also to quantify the effects they have on mission-critical electrical systems. Radiated vulnerability and susceptibility testing requires delivery of high peak power and peak electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments on large ...

  10. Layered Network of Differential Pressure Sensors

    SBC: Goldfinch Sensor Technologies and Analytics LLC            Topic: DTRA172001

    Detection of car bomb blasts and unsanctioned nuclear test monitoring need accurate determination of the properties of the blast waves. Differential pressure transducers have the required performance sensitivity but must be scaled up in sensor housing, numbers of sensors in the network, and efficient processing of the data stream. Our data and modeling of differential pressure transducers and embe ...
