  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. Urban Area Blast Wave Analysis using a Hierarchical, Solution-based, Adaptive Mesh Refinement Technique

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

    The magnetic field distribution in a Z-pinch, can be used to infer the currentsflowing in the pinch and study the stability during the implosion phase. Faradayrotation techniques are too insensitive for measurements during the run-in phase.Similarly, it is difficult to infer the Zeeman splitting from spectrally resolvedline profile when the splitting is much less than the absorption line width d.H ...

  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. Critical Feature Defeat for Underground Facilities- Thermal Accelerant Payload

    SBC: Multimax, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to improve the calculation of seismic event locations at regional distances in areas without calibrated station corrections by replacing the conventional travel-time table with those travel times that are generated (during the locationcomputation) from an existing program that uses 3-D ray-tracing through an inhomogeneous earth model. Regional location accuracy will be improved by calc ...

  6. Unique High Precision Spectrometer for Warm X-ray Development and Model Benchmarking

    SBC: UTD, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Drilling has been an integral part of defense community weapons effects testing for over 40 years. Hard target defeat programs have required specialized drilling technology in the creation of test targets and in the monitoring of weapons tests, that canonly be accomplished by directional drilling. Unfortunately the cost of conducting directional drilling, the typical use of large volumes of wate ...

  7. Tag, Track, and Locate (TTL) technologies and concepts for combating weapons of mass destruction (CWMD).

    SBC: SURFACE TREATMENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA102001

    OBJECTIVE: Expand the state-of-the-art to develop new technologies that predict our enemy"s intentions before they act by focusing on"24x7"TTL of terrorists and WMD-related activities in what is now a global theater of war. Enhance technical capabilities to globally tag, track and locate personnel and materials associated with the development, manufacture, or proliferation of WMD. DESCRIPTI ...

  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. 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 ...
