  1. Nuclear Weapons Effects Phenomenology

    SBC: Applied Physics Technologies            Topic: N/A

    The nuclear weapons community has traditionally focused on the next generation or level of weapon capability complimented by gathering and analysis of actual test data. Now, with the cessation of actual weapons testing, there is an increased need to use the actual test data in modeling techniques to better understand the phenomenology and potential effects of nuclear weapons. The first phase of ...

  2. Laser Turbulence Measurements in the LB/TS

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

    Turbulence of gas flows by its very nature is one of the most difficult things to model and measure. We propose to develop a new way of measuring the turbulence and to compare these measurements to predictions using the k-epsilon model. Typical measurements, in the past, use smoke, Schlierin or shadow graph techniques to visually infer turbulence characteristics. These features are either motio ...

  3. Low Cost, Portable X-Ray Simulator Development

    SBC: North Star Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    We propose, in Phase I and Phase II, to build an X-ray simulator capable of easy transportation between sites which can be built for a low cost (

  4. Microcomputer-Based Collateral-Effects Source Model for Hazardous Material Dispersal in Vent Plumes from Attacks on Hardened Structures

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEFENSE NUCLEAR AGENCY (DNA) IS DEVELOPING THE OPERATIONAL MESOSCALE ENVIRONMENT MODEL WITH GRID ADAPTIVITY (OMEGA) TO PREDICT REAL-TIME DISPERSAL OF HAZARDOUS AEROSOLS. ONE REQUIREMENT FOR OMEGA OR ANY SIMILAR MODEL IS TO PREDICT COLLATERAL EFFECTS FROM STRIKES ON NUCLEAR, BIOLOGICAL, AND CHEMICAL (NBC) FACILITIES. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PHASE I PROGRAM IS TO DETERMINE THE ESSENTIAL FE ...

  5. SECOND GENERATION LABORATORY SIMULATOR FOR SINGLE EVENT EFFECTS TESTING OF MICROELECTRONICS

    SBC: Daniel H. Valles & Assoc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO PROVE THE SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY TO USE ELECTROSTATIC ACCELERATION TO BOOST THE ENERGY OF CF-252 FISSION FRAGMENTS AS A LABORATORY SIMULATION OF COSMIC RAY EFFECTS I MICROELECTRONICS. THE PROJECT OBJECTIVE IS TO BOOST THE ENERGY SUCH THAT A LARGE FRACTION OF THE ACCELERATED IONS HAVE A RANGE IN SILICON GRATER THAN 20 MICROMETERS. THIS SOLVES A NUMBER OF PROBLEMS ASSOCIA ...

  6. ELECTRICALLY DRIVEN TWO-STAGE GUN FOR TACTICAL APPLICATIONS

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    HYPERVELOCITY GUN TECHNOLOGY WILL PLAY A DECISIVE ROLE IN THE FUTURE TACTICAL BATTLEFIELD. WEAPONS WITH MUZZLE VELOCITIES OF 2.5 TO 4KN/S (8,000 TO 12,000 FT/S) OR GREATER HAVE POTENTIAL USES IN ALMOST EVERY ASPECT OF WARFARE. RECENT ADVANCES IN PULSED OWER TECHNOLOGY, SPECIFICALLY THE HIGH ENERGY DENSITIES AVAILABLE WITH INTERGRATED PULSE FORMING NETWORKS (IPFNS) AND ADVANCED ROTATING ELECTRICAL ...

  8. IMPROVED FLASHBOARDS FOR HIGH POWER OPENING SWITCHES

    SBC: North Star Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    NSRC PROPOSES AN AMBITIOUS EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM DESIGNED TO INVESTIGATE FLASHBOARD PLASMA SOURCE IMPROVEMENTS WITH APPLICATION EXISTING OPENING SWITCHES IN DNA SIMULATORS. WE WILL INVESTIGATE POWER SYSTEM OPTIONS INCLUDING DC CHARGING AND EXTERNAL TRIGGER SYSTEMS WITH MODEST TRIGGER REQUIREMENTS. MODIFICATIONS TO THE ELECTRODE GEOMETRY OF THE FLASHBOARDS ARE EXPECTED TO IMPROVE DC HOLD-OFF CAPABIL ...

  9. CORRELATION OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS EFFECTS DATA TO DIRECTED AND KINETIC EFFECTS

    SBC: ORION International Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SEVERAL DIRECTED (DE) AND KINETIC ENERGY (KE) WEAPON TECHNOLOGIES ARE PRESENTLY IN THE LABORATORY, EITHER AS DESIGN CONCEPTS OR PROTOTYPE MODELS. FORTUNATELY, NONE OF THESE TECHNOLOGIES HAVE BEEN PUT TO FULL OPERATIONAL USE. THUS, REAL DATA IS LACKING OF THE EFFECTS TO THESE TECHNOLOGIES TO AN ARRAY OF MATERIALS AND STRUCTURES. HOWEVER, NUCLEAR WEAPON TECHNOLOGY HAS BEEN RESEARCHED IN-DEPTH FOR TH ...

  10. A CONCEPT FOR USING RF AS A NON-LETHAL DETERRENT TO INTRUDERS INTO NUCLEAR WEAPONS STORAGE FACILITIES

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVICE DESCRIBED IN THIS PHASE I PROPOSAL INCORPORATES A NOVEL TECHNIQUE FOR USING RF AS AN ENHANCEMENT TO FACILITY SECURITY SYSTEMS. RF HAS OFTEN BEEN INVESTIGATED AS A METHOD FOR PROVIDING A NON-LETHAL DETERRENT TO INTRUSION INTO SECURED FACILITIES SUCH AS STORAGE FACILITIES FOR NUCLEAR WEAPONS. THE PRIMARY PROBLEM ASSOCIATED WITH THE SYSTEMS THAT HAVE BEEN STUDIED HAS BEEN THE ABILITY TO CO ...
