  1. The Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects on Nano-technology Microelectronics

    SBC: Defense Electronics Corporation            Topic: DTRA121002

    Defense Electronics Corporation (DEC) proposes an innovative radiation hardened by design (RHBD) and reliability improvement solution for silicon, III-V compounds (e.g. SiGe, SiC, GaN, InP, GaAs,), carbon nanotubes (CNT), and graphene. The method is based on analyzing chip-partitioned quiescent current signatures associated with failure modes common to these process technologies. Furthermore, the ...

  2. Enhanced Small Arms Ammunition

    SBC: LIBERTY AMMUNITION, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06008

    Historically, small arms ammunition has been limited in it's performance due to dated projectile designs. Recently, Liberty Ammunition has introduced a novel patented projectile design, which optimizies accuracy, range, hard and soft target perfomance in a single round. This innovation increases the capability of existing small arms and eliminates the need for users to carry more than one typ ...

  3. Advanced Longevity System for the Environmental Protection of Electrochromic Materials

    SBC: ECLIPSE ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF06019

    Eclipse has a variable transmittance coating to meet the requirement for a single day/night visor for aircrews. The Eclipse Electrochromic Device (EclipseECD) is well suited for light modulation applications. The EclipseECD modulates transmitted light intensity over a broad range (80% to 20% transmission) by changing optical density under an applied electric field (1.5V). This process is reversed ...

  4. Man Portable Hand Held Survey Device

    SBC: TAMPA MICROWAVE            Topic: SOCOM09004

    Advanced signal processing techniques based on existing Tampa Microwave signal intelligence receiver hardware, University of South Florida cellular recognition software and Athena Group FPGA products will be utilized to demonstrate a wide bandwidth, fast scan manportable cellular scanning device. BENEFITS: Power consumption, size, stare bandwidth and scan speed for hand held communications interce ...

  5. Inexpensive, disposable radiation detectors

    SBC: NANOPTICS, INC.            Topic: DTRA082007

    This proposal concerns the detection of Special Nuclear Materials (SNM) by using large networks of small, inexpensive, and robust gamma detectors. These detectors will be deployed where consistent surveillance would be difficult by any other means, like remote mountain trails. The proposal describes a novel gamma detector that is extremely robust and inexpensive. The new scintillation material is ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 (
