  1. Next Generation Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Codes

    SBC: APPLIED SIMULATIONS, INC.            Topic: DTRA092015

    Accurate blast simulations based on first-principles, 3-D hydro-codes require hours on notebook PCs. Graphical processing units (GPUs) offer the potential of drastic reductions in run-times. Typical computational fluid dynamics codes perform of the order of 10-100 operations per memory fetch and store. In order to harness the potential of graphical processing units (GPUs), near-perfect streaming ( ...

  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 ...

  5. VULNERABILITY TO AIRBLAST-INDUCED SHOCK

    SBC: Los Alamos Technical Assocs In            Topic: N/A

    THE DAMAGING EFFECTS OF NUCLEAR AIRBLAST, THERMAL AND PROMPT RADITION, AND EMP ON EXPOSED EQUIPMENT AND STRUCTURES ARE WELL KNOWN. AN ADDITIONAL, LESS WIDELY RECOGNIZED BUT POTENTIALLY SERIOUS NUCLEAR EFFECT IS THAT OF AIRBLAST-INDUCED SHOCK (ABIS). EQUIPMENT MOUNTED INSIDE AN ENCLOSED SPACE CAN BE EXPOSED TO LARGE INDUCED VELOCITIES AND ACCELERATIONS, PRIMARLY IN THE HORIZONTAL DIRECTION. THE INT ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Polyoxometalate/Graphene Gas Sensor Coupled with Infrared Motion Detector for Human Proximity Sensor Array

    SBC: International Scientific Technologies Inc            Topic: DTRA143001

    In Topic DTRA143-001, a need has been identified to improve monitoring human presence near containers, stored items, and secured areas in order to monitor activities, particularly in remote locations that are not patrolled all day every day. The use of smart materials to detect human presence by sensing volatile organic compounds emanating from the human body is a major area of interest within the ...

  9. Facile, High Throughput Aerosol Production of Oxidizer Particles

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: DTRA14B001

    The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has been supporting research of energetic materials and incendiaries as payloads for weapons to defeat targets containing chemical and biological agents. Several universities and Navy labs have been involved in this research, and have narrowed down on a few material formulations that are efficient biocides. These formulations contain a chemical ingredient ...

  10. Semantic Parsing and role Labeling In Combination Effort (SPLICE)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA14B003

    With missions surrounding counterproliferation, nonproliferation and WMD reduction, the stakes for DTRA are incredibly high. Effectively conducting this work involves cooperation and coordination across a wide range of military and government organizations throughout the United States and the world. The decentralization of threats has led to an explosion in the sources and types of data needed to ...
