The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Calculation of Impulse Response Function During Realistic Scenarios

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: DTRA103001

    It is well known that satellite communications and radar signals propagating in the natural ionosphere can be disturbed. It has also been widely reported that the ionosphere is subject to even greater disturbances following nuclear detonations. Hence the design of robust satellite communications and radar systems must take into account the effects of ionospheric disturbances. Radar and communic ...

  3. Modeling and Development of Conformal Metamaterials for Wideband EMI Shielding

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: DTRA103004

    U.S. military communications and weapons systems are reliant on electronics systems that are highly sensitive to external electromagnetic (EM) threats, whether from intentional or environmental sources. In order to protect from these external EM threats, high levels of electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding are required. Significant advances in materials technology and manufacturing, howev ...

  4. Low Frequency Electro Magnetic Signatures for Detecting&Discriminating Nuclear/non-nuclear Underground Tests

    SBC: INFORMATION SYSTEMS LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA103005

    ISL in Phase 1 will calculate electromagnetic source signatures for both nuclear and non-nuclear underground tests (UGTs). We will also establish methods and computer algorithms for calculating the electromagnetic pulse (EMP) caused by the detonation, at any receiver location, as it propagates through varied subsurface geology. We currently have in-house code for calculating dipolar E and B sourc ...
