  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. CeMnO3 1T Bipolar Memory

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Bipolar Junction Transistors (BJT) are used for power and mixed signal applications in radiation environments. Current BJT devices perform with volatile operation requiring constant power supply for uninterrupted access. We propose to create a nonvolatileBJT memoy device using proprietary SMI cerium based ferroelctric mterial (patent pending) prodced by Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOC ...

  5. A Single Event Upset Immune Re-Programmable FPGA Utilizing a Commercial Architecture

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA03005

    Radiation tolerant Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA's) have gained wide and rapid acceptance by military and aerospace equipment suppliers; however, there are presently a limited number of chip-sets available for production. The lack of FPGA alternatives severely limits the range of available functions and applications that would greatly benefit from increased performance with radiation hardn ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. IED neutralization from an airborne platform

    SBC: Imsar LLC            Topic: DTRA182001

    In cooperation with the Joint Improvised-threat Defeat Organization (JIDO) and the U.S. Army, IMSAR LLC demonstrated its radar systems' ability to successfully detect IED emplacements from the RQ-7B Shadow Unmanned Aerial System (UAS). As part of the Army’s ShadowSAR program, IMSAR operated and maintained these Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) sensors for 4 ½ years in support of Operation Endurin ...

  10. Autonomous navigation through small, confined spaces

    SBC: Robotic Research LLC            Topic: DTRA182002

    As more of our enemies expand the number and complexity of their underground facilities, the need to improve the tools that provide consistent situational awareness (SA) increases accordingly. For complex missions such as these, we require a family of systems (FoS) that have different capabilities, and can address various mission needs. Robotic Research proposes creating a unique, small platform ( ...
