  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. Diaphragm Pressure Gauge

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "Nuclear Weapons Effects Tests (NWET) frequently require that the test article be irradiated in an ultra-clean environment, making survivable shields a necessary part of many debris systems. Survivable shields as large as 12 inches in diameter are requiredbut have yet to be demonstrated in Plasma Radiating Source (PRS) environments. The loads on a survivable shield are a combination of radiation i ...

  3. Adiabatic Thermopile for Radiation Dosimetry

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "Measurements of fluence from a Plasma Radiation Source (PRS) are critical to the performance of accurate Nuclear Weapon Effects (NWE) experiments. Fast, total stopping calorimeters have been demonstrated to provide a robust, reusable, economic sensor forfluence measurements. However, the output of these sensors is a few millivolts and thus high signal to noise recording is difficult to achieve, ...

  4. Radiation Effects Modeling for High Yield, Reliable Integrated Circuits

    SBC: AET, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Defense Special Weapons Agency (DSWA) has identified a need to improve the radiation hardness of advanced integrated circuit technologies. To be practical, this must be achieved in a cost effective way. This proposal by AET, Inc. directly addresses these concerns. Specifi-cally, this proposal provides a means to achieve significant advance in radiation hardness of large scale integrated cir ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 (

  8. 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 ...

  9. X-RAY/GAMMA-RAY TELESCOPE FOR USE IN TREATY VERIFICATION AND OPEN SKIES INSPECTIONS

    SBC: PHYSITRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Physitron proposes development of an x-ray/gamma-ray telescope that can be used for treaty verification and compliance testing. In particular, the x-ray/gamma-ray telescope can be mounted in the Open Skies Treaty aircraft to provide a capability of detect, characterize and identify nuclear weapons development work. Objectives of the development program include: (1) adapting an existing gamma-ra ...

  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 ...
