  1. Develop a Cost Efficient and Effective Method for Cast-In-Place Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC)

    SBC: Hipertex Armor Group, LLC            Topic: DTRA12101

    Hipertex Armor Group, LLC proposes the development and validation of a fiber reinforced Cementitious product capable of being cast in the field while meeting the customer strength requirements without the need of steam curing. Specifically, Hipertex will utilize a new carbon macro-fiber technology developed for blast resistance combined with a family of mortar and concrete products based on tri- ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Tag, Track, and Locate (TTL) technologies and concepts for combating weapons of mass destruction (CWMD).

    SBC: SURFACE TREATMENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA102001

    Inspired by canine"s olfactory receptor system, three dimensional chemical sensors will be demonstrated using nano-wire arrays, which have high sensitivity and selectivity, miniaturized size, and low power consumption. This innovative technology can be employed for combating weapons of mass destruction (CWMD).

  4. Very Low Cost Photomultiplier Chip for Disposable Gamma Spectrometer

    SBC: Lightspin Technologies Inc            Topic: DTRA082007

    We propose to develop a very low cost Photomultiplier Chip (TM) as a direct replacement for photomultiplier tubes, to help make gamma spectrometers disposably cheap. The detector achieves single-photon sensitivity, wide dynamic range, low gain noise and low dark noise using novel designs in a gallium arsenide-based compound semiconductor. The approach will mitigate risks of scaling to the inch-siz ...

  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. Modeling Enhanced Energy Release in Turbulent Exothermic Flows in Closed Chambers by an Inverse Meth

    SBC: Enig Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Toward understanding how turbulent mixing with air of detonation products of fuel-rich explosives results in further combustion of the detonation products and, therefore, enhanced lethality, we first consider an exothermic reaction of a premixed fuel/oxidizer in a closed vessel in the limit of zero Mach number and infinite Reynolds, Peclet, and Damkohler numbers. To help elucidate the main mechan ...

  10. High-Order Godunov Schemes for Multiphase Gas particulate Flowfield Modeling and Simulation

    SBC: Krispin Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed work aims at deeloping two major new innovqative capabiliities for the High-Order Godunov (HOG) technology. The first new capability is in the area of low Mach number problems; new code based on the projection method scheme will be developed for complex 3D multiphase flow fields, in particular, the post explosion cloud rise phenomenon includin gparticle transport. The second new ca ...
