  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. Stochastic Consideration of Cased Munitions for Casing Breakup and Airblast

    SBC: Karagozian & Case            Topic: DTRA102003

    OBJECTIVE: To develop an analytic method to predict fragment characterization and the resulting airblast propagation from the detonation of a cased explosive. Current procedures are heuristic, based on empirical analysis of test data and simplified analytic expressions. While these work satisfactorily for traditional munitions that detonate in conditions similar to the testing arenas, there is co ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Solutions for Single-Event Effects in Ultra Deep Submicron Semiconductor Technologies Using Simulation and Layout Techniques

    SBC: ROBUST CHIP INC.            Topic: DTRA102008

    Robust Chip (RCI) and Vanderbilt University (Vanderbilt) propose a joint project to create and characterize a comprehensive, accurate, single event simulation solution for ultra scaled (45nm, 32nm, and below) CMOS technologies. The project focus is on developing a production strength single event analysis solution for 45nm, 28nm and 22nm CMOS, building on the most advanced single event characteriz ...

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

    SBC: MODERN TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: DTRA111002

    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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Ultra-short Pulsed Off-axis Digital Holography for 3D imaging of Aerosol Evolution

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: DTRA182003

    This is a proposal to develop a unique, Ultrashort Pulsed Off-axis Digital Holography (USPODH) system, enabling the high frequency imaging of detailed 3D structures within aerosol fields under harsh thermodynamic conditions and high optical depths where ordinary imaging is essentially useless.Many powerful imaging methods have failed to provide this capability because noise from multiple scatterin ...

  8. GaAs and Higher Z PCDs for Flash X-ray Diagnostics

    SBC: NU TREK INC            Topic: N/A

    Nu-Trek will design, fabricate, and demonstrate 23 models of GaAs PCDs. Technical characteristics include 50-500 ps response time, 10E6-10E12 rad(Si)/s dose rate capability, and a spectral range of < 1 keV through several MeV. The GaAs PCDs will be used asdose rate monitors, flux monitors, and as detectors in spectrometers. They will supplement/replace Si PIN diodes (faster, less sensitive), diamo ...
