  3. 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 ...

  4. SNAPSHOT: A System for Predicting Human Physical Traits from Sample DNA

    SBC: PARABON NANOLABS, INC.            Topic: DTRA102007

    This SBIR Phase II project will produce a working prototype of a DNA processing system that will provide the U.S. Department of Defense with a revolutionary new forensics capability, namely, the ability to predict from a human DNA sample the physical traits of its source. The system, code-named SNAPSHOT, uses commercially available DNA processing equipment and can be deployed within any DNA proce ...

  5. Modeling and Development of Conformal Metamaterials for Wideband EMI Shielding

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: DTRA103004

    U.S. military communications and weapons systems are reliant on electronics systems that are highly sensitive to external electromagnetic (EM) threats, whether from intentional or environmental sources. In order to protect from these external EM threats, high levels of electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding are required. Significant advances in materials technology and manufacturing, howev ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
