  1. Heterdyne Interferometer for Triggering Gas Puff PRSs

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Large X-ray generators using gas fill loads are a key element in the DTRA simulator program. Consistent relative timing between the injection of the gas shell and the generator current pulse is crucial to producing consistent, high-yield x-ray pulses.To that end HY-Tech proposes replacing existing high voltage trigger pin technology, with a sensitive, all fiber-optic heterodyne interferometer ba ...

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

    SBC: PARABON NANOLABS, INC.            Topic: DTRA102007

    OBJECTIVE: Develop a Forensic DNA Analysis Kit for Genetic Intelligence that can be used on unknown human DNA samples collected from the battlefield to provide information about the individual who deposited the sample, such as potential ethnicity, height, eye color, hair color, age, sex, and/or facial features. The kit should leverage Short Tandem Repeats (STR), Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (S ...

  3. Numerical Model of Subsurface Transport of Noble Gases in Fractured Geologic Media for Detection and Identification of Subsurface Nuclear Explosion Te


    Surface detection of specific radioisotopes of the noble gases xenon and argon are essential for detection and discrimination of underground nuclear explosions. We propose a unique combination of numerical modeling and stable isotope release experiments to enhance the predictability of subsurface transport of the noble gases of interest. Our proposed research will identify and quantify the physi ...

  4. Automated pattern recognition methods to identify nuclear explosions

    SBC: Acorn Science & Innovation, Inc.            Topic: DTRA182005

    Reliable automated pattern recognition in the current system is limited by excessive noise and clutter combined with insufficient and/or ambiguous features. Our team consisting of AcornSI and Leidos thus propose a multi-step approach based on the combined effects of improved detection, feature extraction, phase identification, and global association.A key innovation here is creating a new classifi ...

  5. Secure Agent-Based Collaboration Environment

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 39c

    72526S03-I Collaboration on experimental nuclear physics projects is international and requires hundreds of participants. Due to the sheer size and complexity of the experiments, a great deal of the experimental planning, equipment design, preparation, and assembly must be carried out prior to the experimental runs. A low cost method for secure remote communications is needed to allow the colla ...

  7. Low-Cost, Modular, Highly Reliable Inverter

    SBC: Airak, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    72743S03-I Today¿s current inverter technologies for electric and hybrid-electric vehicle systems do not lend themselves well to modularity. The inverter designs tend to be application-specific, which translates into larger inverter sizes and/or increased development cost. Also, the accompanying low volume production of such specialized inverters increases parts cost significantly. This proje ...

  9. An Extremely High Power, Field-Coupled, Low-Loss RF Transmission Line for SRF Cavities

    SBC: Avar Inc.            Topic: N/A

    73155S03-I Superconducting particle accelerators require high power radio frequency (RF) couplers that have high capital and operational costs. The operational costs include power dissipation at cryogenic temperatures and operational down time. New coupler designs are needed to reduce these costs for particle accelerators that will require even higher RF power than now available. This project ...

  10. A New SRF Cavity Processing Technique for the Elimination of Field Emission and Surface Preparation in Fully Assembled Cavities

    SBC: Avar Inc.            Topic: N/A

    73156S03- I Superconducting Radio Frequency (SRF) cavities are a critical device for present and future particle accelerators in military, research, and industrial applications. The performance of these cavities is limited by field emission, which is controlled by cavity processing techniques. However, currently available processing techniques provide less-than-satisfactory cavity performance, ...
