  1. HOLOGRAPHIC PATTERN RECOGNITION FOR ARMS CONTROL

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE CONTRACTOR HAS PATENTED TECHNOLOGY FOR A UNIQUE PROCESS THAT DIRECTLY CONVERTS AN ACOUSTIC SIGNAL INTO A VISIBLE ONE IN REAL-TIME WITHOUT ELECTRONIC CIRCUITRY. THIS RELIES ON THE ACOUSTO-OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF A CONTINUOUS LAYER OF LIQUID CRYSTAL THIN FILM LAYER WHICH SERVES AS BOTH THE SENSOR AND THE DISPLAY. THE IMAGE CAN BE VIEWED DIRECTLY BY MEANS OF CCD CAMERA. HOLOGRAPHY PROVIDES FOR BOTH ...

  2. ANALYSIS OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS EFFECTS ON STRATEGIC STRUCTURES

    SBC: Engineering & Economics Rsrch            Topic: N/A

    SUBSTANTIAL PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE IN RECENT YEARS TO DEVELOP AND VALIDATE MODELS WHICH CAN PREDICT THE PHYSICAL EFFECTS OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS ON STRATEGIC STRUCTURES. SIGNIFICANT UNCERTAINTIES REMAIN, HOWEVER, IN THE CONFIDENCE LEVELS ATTRIBUTABLE TO THESE PREDICTIVE CAPABILITIES. THIS APPROACH WOULD IDENTIFY AND PRIORITIZE THOSE ACTIVITIES, ALONG WITH THEIR ASSOCIATED BUDGETARY AND SCHEDULING CONSI ...

  3. LASER INDUCED FLUORESCENCE MEASUREMENTS OF MAGNETIC FIELD CONTOURS IN HIGH CURRENT DEVICES

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

    THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE MAGNETIC FIELD IN A HIGH CURRENT PLASMA DEVICE PROVIDES IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE DEVICES OPERATION. TRADITIONAL FARADAY ROTATION, ZEEMAN EMISSION SPECTROSCOPY, AND MAGNETIC PROBE TECHNIQUES SUFFER FROM POOR SPATIAL RESOLUTION BECAUSE THE MAGNETIC FIELD EFFECT IS INTEGRATED ALONG THE LINE OF SIGHT FOR THE OPTICAL TECHNIQUE AND THE PROBES PERTURB THE PLASMAS. A LASER I ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. THE EFFECT OF PRESHOCK LOADING ON THE RESPONSE OF NTS TUFF

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PRESHOCKED PRECONDITIONING OF TUFF MAY OCCUR IN TWO MANNERS AT THE NEVADA TEST SITE. FIRST, THE MATERIAL IS "PRESHOCKED" IN A LINEOF-SIGHT TYPE UNDERGROUND NUCLEAR TEST BY THE FIRST WAVE PASSAGE. THE SECOND MANNER MAY OCCUR AS A RESULT OF AREAL SPACE LIMITATIONS WHEN A SECOND EVENT IS SITED WITHIN A REGION OF PRESHOCKED MATERIAL. UNDER CERTAIN LOAD-UNLOADED CONDITIONS THE MATERIAL STRENGTH MAY BE ...

  6. UNDRAINED SHEAR BEHAVIOR OF SATURATED JOINTED ROCKS AT DEEP BASING CONDITIONS

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SHEAR DISPLACEMENT ALONG ROCK MASS DISCONTINUITIES (JOINTS) UNDER SATURATED, UNDRAINED CONDITIONS IS ONE OF THE CRITICAL FAILURE MODES FOR A DYNAMICALLY LOADED DEEP BASE STRUCTURE. THE FAILURE MODE HAS NOT BEEN EXPERIMENTALLY SIMULATED FOR DEEP BASE CONDITIONS. THE COMBINED APPLICATION OF NORMAL AND SHEAR STRESSES AT DYNAMIC RATES, WITHOUT PORE PRESSURE DRAINAGE, IS LIKELY TO PRODUCE HIGH PORE PRE ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. HybridSil Nanocomposite Potting Materials for Next Generation Precision Munitions

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: DTRA112001

    The objective of this SBIR program is to adapt NanoSonic"s high temperature, ballistic resistant HybridSilTM nanocomposites for use as next generation potting materials with exceptional thermal durability, g-force resilience, and negligible variation (
