  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. 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 ...

  3. Development of a spectroscopic technique to measure electric fields in plasma radiation sources

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: DTRA04010

    The intensity ratio of forbidden-to-allowed transitions in Li and He have been used to determine both turbulent electric fields due to plasma instabilities and quasi-static applied electric fields in low density and temperature plasmas. HY-Tech proposes to extend this technique to the plasma temperatures and densities encountered in plasma radiation sources. In this case uv spectra of Li-like and ...

  5. 3-Dimensional Hazard and Consequence Assessment Visualization

    SBC: NOESIS, INC.            Topic: DTRA04006

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of utilizing a three-dimensional spatial display to visualize information from a time-varying hazard prediction model. A spatial 3D display offers true volumetric projections of data and allows observers to gain insight of hazard information that is not possible with conventional 3D graphical scenes on a 2D surface or with presented ...

  7. Low Cost Manufacturing Process for Sodium Iodide Detectors

    SBC: XL Sci Tech Inc            Topic: DTRA05014

    An unconventional, continuous, and flexible manufacturing process is proposed for the production of sodium iodide detectors. The steps of crystal growing and substantially simplified detector machining are integrated into one streamline process based on proven techniques with minimal capital investment. This new production process will drastically reduce the manufacturing cost. A leading commerc ...

  10. 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 ...
