  1. Low-Energy Maskless Lithography to Mitigate Radiation Effects in Advanced Nanoscale Microelectronics

    SBC: Multibeam Corporation            Topic: DTRA112003

    The need for novel weapons to defeat urban targets and rapidly immobalize enemy combatants hiding in bunkers, caves, and basements requires new weapons and tactics. Thermobaric warheads can provide tailored blast response optimized for the defeat of these targets with low collateral damage. In this Phase I SBIR program, Powdermet will develop surface-coated metallic particles that can deliver tail ...

  3. Indirect Detection of Radiological and Nuclear Threats by Non-atmospheric Effect Techniques

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: DTRA133002

    ABSTRACT: We propose a concept for the detection of radiological sources at stand-off distances, using a two part system consisting of a detector tag and a radar system. A radiation-sensitive resonant circuit with nonlinear properties (the tag) is placed near a kn BENEFITS: Successful completion of this project will result in one or more circuit designs for detection tags, and theoretical, simula ...

  4. A Generic Cross-Platform Perception API for Unmanned Vehicles

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: OSD13HS4

    ABSTRACT: Autonomous vehicles lack a standardized mechanism for seamless cross-platform sharing of testing frameworks and evaluations of basic tasks. The ability to execute common tests on various hardware platforms is essential in order to be able to e

  5. Stand-off Detection of Alternative Signatures of Radiation

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: DTRA122014

    Prevention of the smuggling of special nuclear materials (SNMs) and other radioactive material into the United States is a key national security objective. It is desirable to have a system capable of stand-off detection to monitor and rapidly alert the presence of covert nuclear materials. In Phase I, Tanner in collaboration with the University of New Mexico have established the method of inferrin ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
