  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. A NOVEL FIELD PROGRAMMABLE GATE ARRAY FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Mission Research Corporation proposes the development of a unique FPGA (field programmable gate array) for applications in space and other military and civilian environments requiring the versatility of reconfigurability with retention of the configuration in an unpowered state. The FPGA will be capable of being configured once and retaining that configuration for a minimum of 10 years even with ...

  4. 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 (

  5. An Improved Plasma Opening Switch for DECADE

    SBC: NumerEx            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT ATTEMPTS TO USE THE PLASMA OPENING SWITCH (POS) FOR DECADE HAVE NOT YET BEEN ENTIRELY SUCCESSFUL DUE TO THE APPARENT INABILITY OF THE SWITCH TO OPEN EFFICIENTLY TO A HIGH-IMPEDENCE LOAD. RESEARCH DIRECTED TOWARD IMPROVING THE PERFORMANCE OF THE POS IN THE LONG-CONDUCTION TIME REGIME HAS BEEN FRUSTRATED BY THE INABILITY OF COMPUTATIONAL TOOLS TO OPERATE IN THE PARAMETER REGIMES OF INTEREST ...

  6. A Portable Gamma Spectrometer with a High Resolution CdTe Array Detector

    SBC: Radiation Safety Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a battery powered portable monitoring system capable of collecting and analyzing gamma spectra for specific radionuclides in the field. The system will consist of a high resolution cadmium telluride array detector and a small multichannel analyzer and data logger. The proposed monitoring system builds upon the design of the Ludlum Model 2350 Data Logger which is quite rugge ...

  7. Electrostatic Supercapacitor

    SBC: SIGMA TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Power electronic and pulse power applications for land based and airborne systems require capacitors with increasingly higher energy and power density that can withstand higher operating and process tempertures. Electrochemical double layer and metal oxide capacitors can satisfy many of the energy density speccifications but due to high ESRs their power density is 100-1000 times lowe than require ...

  8. High Energy Density Polymer Film Capacitors

    SBC: SIGMA TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Pulsed power systems for electric armament and compact weapons require increasingly smaller energy delivery systems and higher levels of reliability and component safety. Although new capacitor technologies such as double layer and electrostatic supercapacitors promise energy densities higher than 10J/cc, liquid impregnated film dielectrics with energy densities of 2.5J/cc, continue to be the sta ...

  9. A FUEL/AIR DRIVE FLUX COMPRESSOR POWER UNIT FOR ELECTROTHERMAL GUNS

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The Ktech Team proposes a feasibility study of a fuel/air driven flux compression power unit (FCPU) for electric guns. Through variations of inductance gradients and through changes in scale, the proposed technology will be applicable to both electrothermal/chemical and electromagnetic guns. In the Phase 1 effort, we develop simulation models to predict the performance of the flux compression po ...

  10. Response of Dry Spore Biological Agets and Surrogates to Weapons Environment

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

    The Defense Nuclear Agency hase undertaken several related programs to develop new technologies for countering the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, including weapons which disperse dry spore biological agents. These initiatives require an increased understanding of the response o fthese agents and their surrogates to the environments generated by various weapons, including penetratin ...
