  1. Location and Yield of Nuclear Events Using Radionuclide Monitoring Data and Inverse Plume Modeling

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A worldwide network of radionuclide monitoring stations has been established to monitor radioactive fall-out from nuclear tests. These stations sample the air for radioactive particulates and Xenon on a daily basis. This project is to develop a softwaresystem to determine the location, timing, and yield of nuclear events and their corresponding estimation probabilities using the sampled data from ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. FIBER OPTIC GROUND MOTION SENSOR

    SBC: GEO-CENTERS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PHASE I EXPERIMENTAL EFFORT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF A FIELD WORTHY GROUND MOTION SENSOR TO REPLACE PIEZO-ELECTRIC ACCELEROMETERS FOR CONVENTIONAL EXPLOSIVES AND NUCLEAR TESTING. THE OUTPUT SIGNALS OF PIEZO-ELECTRIC ACCELEROMETERS MUST BE INTEGRATED TWICE TO DETERMINE GROUND MOTIONS. THIS PROCESS REDUCES SYSTEM ACCURACY AND MEASUREMENT BANDWIDTH. ADDITIONALLY, AS PIEZO-ELECTRIC SENS ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. Large Area Neutron Counter Array

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    NOVA Scientific will demonstrate a large-area/low-cost neutron detection system having high detector quantum efficiency and high signal-to noise ratio. The approach utilizes an embedded neutron absorber in a solid state detector, utilizing known processingtechnology. The system detects fissionable materials by converting the neutron signal into a large electron pulse. The unit is light for field d ...

  9. Man-Portable, High-Resolution Gamma-Ray Spectrometer

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The detection and identification of threats due to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) or associated special materials is of increasing importance to national security. The goal of the proposed program is to develop a man-portable,battery-operated gamma-ray spectrometer for the high-resolution characterization of the hidden contents of sealed containers, including nuclear, radi ...

  10. DEFECT REDUCTION IN SIMOX WAFERS

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    CREATION OF BURIED INSULATING LAYERS IN SILICON WAFERS BY HIGH DOSE OXYGEN IMPLANTATION (SIMOX) HAS GAINED SIGNIFICANT ATTENTION IN THE LAST TWO YEARS. THE SIMOX TECHNOLOGY IS POSITIONED TO BE A PRIME CONTENDER IN THE SILICON-ON-INSULATOR (SOI) ARENA MAINLY BECAUSE OF THE INHERENT RELIABILITY/REPRODUCIBILITY OF THE ION IMPLANTATION TECHNOLOGY. ONE OBSTACLE TO BROADER USE OF THE SIMOX MATERIAL IS T ...
