  1. Diamond Real Time, Integrating Dosimeters

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop a new class of real time integrating diamond radiation dosimeters. In Phase I AASC will demonstrate the feasibility of using diamond radiation detectors for monitoring personnel radiation dose. The sensitivity of these detectors will be determined and a concept design for a pocket real time dosimeter will be completed. The Phase ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Increasing Bremsstrahlung Output with a Clean Diode

    SBC: BERKELEY RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    The DM1 module that is a building block of DSWA's DECADE simulator has excellent electrical performance, but the final radiation pulse is erratic and often unsatisfactory. The probable cause is a parasitic current in ions, or through a diode plasma. This proposal is to evaluate a diode configuration that should suppress ions and plasma, namely a cathode of carbon fibers covered with cesium iodid ...

  5. Hard X-Ray Spectrometer for Use During Radiation Tests and High Gain/Bandwidth Integrated Photodetec

    SBC: BERKELEY RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a differential absorption spectrometer that is small enough to be compatible with a test package in a bremsstrahlung test of electronics. In contrast to previous spectrometers, which use individual filter-detector combinations, the present instrument consists of concentric hemispherical shells. This design minimizes the spectrometer's mass, allowing it to be placed in front ...

  6. High Resolution Wind Forecasts Using Multi-Sensor Satellite Surface Characterization Data

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Mission Research Corporation (MRC) will develop a near real-time high resolution multi-sensor satellite surface characterization retrieval aand mesoscale model assimilation technique to predict land surface efffects on atmospheric dynamics. We will include time-varying land cover characteristics and will investigate incorporating satellite-based surface moisture and cloud liquid water data. Atmo ...

  7. Fully Equivalent Operational Model of SMMARC Chemistry

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The impacts of nuclear weapons effect can now only be simulated through the use of very complex and computationally intensive models. This limits the ability to perform thorough engagement investigations. Attempts to reduce model run times have previously traded prediction fidelity for speed reduction by simplifying models. We propose the application of a new innovative approach to accelerate t ...

  8. 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 (

  9. Speed-Accuracy Measures for Distributed Interactive Simulation of Nuclear Weapons Effects

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

    Using distributed interactive simulation (DIS) to conduct effective training, analyses, or mission support in a tactical nuclear weapons effects (NWE) environment requires realistic computer generated forces (CGF) that are sensitive to such effects. This level of sensitivity requires CGF to apply valid and reliable speed-accuracy measures of environmental effects on human performance within the D ...

  10. Neural Optical Sensor for Countering the Proliferation of Biological and Chemical Weapons

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Physical Optics Corporation (POC)s proposes to develop a neural-optical sensor for biological and chemical (""NOSBC"") weapons, with vapor detection capability. The system will comprise a sensor head and a signal processing/display unit. The NOSBC will simultaneously perform multiple immunoassays with a one-second sensor response time; it will apply biometic fuzzy metrology to these parallel sig ...
