  1. Reflex Triode

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "Reflex triode bremsstrahlung sources potentially provide warm X-ray sources (20 keV to 500 keV), capable of generating high doses (~10 cal/g gold) over exposure areas of ~20 cm2. This needed capability allows experimental verification of warm X-ray inducedthermomechanical response, SGEMP, and box IEMP models for achieving component and system certification to hostile environments.In a reflex trio ...

  2. Digital Image Generator for Real-Time Display of Nuclear Backgrounds for Optical/Infrared Sensors

    SBC: VISIDYNE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The team of Visidyne, Inc. and Mission Research Corporation proposes to develop a high-fidelity, real-time Nuclear Optical Dynamic Digital Image Generator (NODDIG) to support the development and testing of algorithms for the mitigation of optical clutterin nuclear environments. The NODDIG concept is a software/hardware digital scene generator. It will complement and support infrared sensors under ...

  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. 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 ...

  5. Radiation Hardened Silicon-on-Insulator Substrates for Advanced Electronics

    SBC: IBIS TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    SIMOX (Separation by Implanted Oxygen) technology achieves total dielectric isolation of active device regions from the substrate and reduces the collection path for ionized charges via the built-in buried oxide which restricts charge movement. Advances in SIMOX technology include radiation hardened memories and gate arrays for space applications, ULSI DRAMs for low voltage operation, thin film SO ...

  6. NEXT GENERATION ULTRA WIDEBAND (UWB) INTRUSTION DETECTION RADAR FOR THE PROTECTION OF NUCLEAR FACILITIES

    SBC: Anro Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IMPULSE RADAR WHICH DERIVES ITS "MAIN BANG", A TRANSIENT, BY EXCITING AN ANTENNA CAVITY WITH A SUBNANOSECOND PULSE HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BE VERY EFFECTIVE FOR INTRUSION DETECTION. A RECENT SBIR PROGRAM COMPLETED FOR DNA RESULTED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW LOW COST, LIGHT WEIGHT, RADAR SENSOR FOR THE PROTECTION OF NUCLEAR SITES NOW BEING MARKETED COMMERCIALLY. DURING THE DNA FIELD EXPERIMENTS ON ANIMA ...

  7. FAST-RISE HIGH PRESSURE GAUGE FOR LONG-DURATION NUCLEAR AIRBLAST

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    KTECH PROPOSES TO DEVELOP OPTICAL HOPKINSON BAR PRESSURE GAUGES FOR MEASUREMENT OF AIRBLAST ON UNDERGROUND NUCLEAR EVENTS. THE BARS WILL BE MADE OF SINGLE CRYSTAL SAPPHIRE WHICH HAS A MEASURED YIELD STRENGTH IN EXCESS OF 10 GPA. THESE GAUGES WILL HAVE A RISE TIME OF ABOUT 2 US OF DATA. DURING PHASE I, WE WILL CONSTRUCT AND CALIBRATE A STRESS-INDUCED BIREFRINGENCE GAUGE (SIBG) WHICH WOULD NEED NO E ...

  8. INSTRUMENTATION-DEVELOPMENT OF PORTABLE MEMORY RADIATION EFFECTS TESTER

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    UNDER THIS EFFORT, WE WILL DEVELOP A PORTABLE MEMORY TESTER UNIQUELY DESIGNED TO PERFORM THE TYPES OF TESTS REQUIRED FOR RADIATION EFFECTS CHARACTERIZATION. SPECIFICALLY, IT WILL PERFORM TESTS TO CHARATERIZE SINGLE EVENT PHENOMENA (SEP), TOTAL DOSE IONIZING EFFECTS, DOSE RATE, AND RAPID ANNEALING PHENOMENA. IT WILL COMBINE KEY FEATURES OF GENERAL PURPOSE ASIC TESTERS AND DEDICATED MEMORY TESTERS R ...

  9. THE EFFECTIVENESS AND FEASIBILITY OF LOW ENERGY LASERS IN NUCLEAR WEAPONS SECURITY

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

    LOW-ENERGY LASER TECHNOLOGY HAS THE POTENTIAL TO SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THE EFFENCIENCY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS SECURITY OPERATIONS. SUCH LASERS, EMPLOYED IN EITHER AUTOMATED OR REMOTELY MANNED CONFIGURATIONS, CAN SUPPLEMENT CURRENT PHYSICAL SECURITY MEASURES BY PROVIDING THREE NON-LETHAL RESPONSE OPTIONS: (1) WARN INTRUDERS THAT THEY HAVE BEEN DETECTED AND ARE ENTERING A SECURE AREA, ...
