  1. RADIATION-PROCESSED HIGH-ENERGY-DENSITY CAPACITOR DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: John R. Bayless Co            Topic: N/A

    THE AVAILABILITY OF ENERGY STORAGE CAPACITORS WITH HIGH ENERGY DENSITIES (>>1 KJ/KG) IS CRITICAL FOR MANY PULSED POWER APPLICATIONS. CONVENTIONAL CAPACITOR DESIGNS, AS WELL AS THOSE CURRENTLY BEING DEVELOPED, USE LAMINATED ASSEMBLIES WHICH ARE IMPREGNATED WITH LIQUIED DIELECTRICS. HOWEVER, SINCE THE DIELECTRIC STRENGTH OF LIQUIED IS GENERALLY MUCH LESS THAN FOR SOLIDS, THE MAXIMUM OOPERATING ELECT ...

  2. 8-LB CHARGE HOB EXPERIMENT REPORT

    SBC: CARPENTER RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    PHASE I PROPOSES TO GATHER THE DATA AND DISCRIPTIVE INFORMATION FOR A 28-SHOT SET OF EXPERIMENTS MADE IN THE EARLY 1970'S TO MEASURE HIGH OVERPRESSURE AIRBLAST FROM 8-LB CHARGES OF PBX-9404, TO PREPARE A WORK PLAN AND PROCEDURES FOR COMPLETING THE DATA PROCESSING FROM THE EXPERIMENTS, CHECKOUT THE PROCEDURES WITH SAMPLE ANALYSES, AND TO PREPARE A COST ESTIMATE FOR PHASE II. THE COMPLETION OF PHASE ...

  3. FREE-AIR BLAST MEASUREMENTS FOR CAVITY UGT

    SBC: CARPENTER RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A PHASE I SBIR STUDY IS PROPOSED TO DETERMINE ANALYTICALLY THE FEASIBILITY OF MEASURING THE FREE-AIR (UNREFLECTED) AIRBLAST WAVEFORMS FROM A NUCLEAR BURST IN AN UNDERGROUND CAVITY. SUCH DATA WOULD BE USEFUL FOR EVALUATING MEASUREMENTS TO BE MADE OF THE AIRBLAST IN THE REGION OF BLAST RELECTION FROM THE CAVITY FLOOR AND WALL. THE STUDY WILL CONSIDER WELL-PROVEN PIEZOELECTRIC AND RESISTIVE TECHNIQUE ...

  5. THE PHYSICS OF WAVE GENERATION FROM BURSTS AT THE UPPER CRITICAL DEPTH

    SBC: Pacific-sierra Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    DETONATION OF EXPLOSIVES AT THE UPPER CRITICAL DEPTH (UCD) CAN GENERATE WATER SURFACE WAVES AT GREAT DISTANCES THAT ARE MORE THAN TWICE THOSE FROM A DEEPER DETONATION. EVIDENCE FOR THE UCD PHENOMENON IS ENTIRELY EMPIRICAL. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL EXPAND ON AN INNOVATIVE PHYSICAL EXPLANATION OF THE UCD, AND WILL PROVIDE QUANTITATIVE PREDICTIONS IN SUPPORT OF A CORRESPONDING UCD FOR NUCLEAR EXPLO ...

  8. THE USE OF AI TECHNOLOGY TO EXPLOIT OPERATIONAL PLANNING AND TACTICAL INTELLIGENCE SYSTEMS

    SBC: Systems Control Technology,            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE OPERATIONAL PLANNING AND TARGETING PROBLEMS OF A COMMANDER IN A TACTICAL OR MIXED TACTIACL/NUCLEAR THEATER. IN SUCH A THEATER, BOTH THE FRIENDLY AND ENEMY FORCES WILL POSSESS HIGHLY MOBIL WEAPONS SYSTEMS. IN ORDER TO USE HIS WEAPONS EFFECTIVELY, THE OPERATIONAL COMMANDER MUST BE ABLE TO TRACK, TARGET, AND STRIKE THE ENEMY'S MOVING FORCES. SOPHISICATED INTELLIGENCE GATHE ...

  10. THERE IS A WELL ESTABLISHED NEED FOR IMPROVED MATERIAL PROPERTIES CHARACTERIZATIONS IN CONJUNCTION WITH NUCLEAR WEAPONS EFFECTS TESTS IN THE TUNNEL BED TUFFS BENEATH RAINIER MESA.

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A WELL ESTABLISHED NEED FOR IMPROVED MATERIAL PROPERTIES CHARACTERIZATIONS IN CONJUNCTION WITH NUCLEAR WEAPONS EFFECTS TESTS IN THE TUNNEL BED TUFFS BENEATH RAINIER MESA. SUBSTANTIALLY IMPROVED SITE CHARACTERIZATION TECHNIQUES WOULD PERMIT MORE CONFIDENT SELECTION OF INDIVIDUAL TEST SITES, BETTER ASSURANCE THAT TESTS WILL BE FULLY CONTINED, IMPROVED PREDICTIONS AND UNDERSTANDING OF GROUND ...
