  1. A CONCEPT FOR USING RF AS A NON-LETHAL DETERRENT TO INTRUDERS INTO NUCLEAR WEAPONS STORAGE FACILITIES

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVICE DESCRIBED IN THIS PHASE I PROPOSAL INCORPORATES A NOVEL TECHNIQUE FOR USING RF AS AN ENHANCEMENT TO FACILITY SECURITY SYSTEMS. RF HAS OFTEN BEEN INVESTIGATED AS A METHOD FOR PROVIDING A NON-LETHAL DETERRENT TO INTRUSION INTO SECURED FACILITIES SUCH AS STORAGE FACILITIES FOR NUCLEAR WEAPONS. THE PRIMARY PROBLEM ASSOCIATED WITH THE SYSTEMS THAT HAVE BEEN STUDIED HAS BEEN THE ABILITY TO CO ...

  2. A NOVEL FIELD PROGRAMMABLE GATE ARRAY FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Mission Research Corporation proposes the development of a unique FPGA (field programmable gate array) for applications in space and other military and civilian environments requiring the versatility of reconfigurability with retention of the configuration in an unpowered state. The FPGA will be capable of being configured once and retaining that configuration for a minimum of 10 years even with ...

  4. An Improved Plasma Opening Switch for DECADE

    SBC: NumerEx            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT ATTEMPTS TO USE THE PLASMA OPENING SWITCH (POS) FOR DECADE HAVE NOT YET BEEN ENTIRELY SUCCESSFUL DUE TO THE APPARENT INABILITY OF THE SWITCH TO OPEN EFFICIENTLY TO A HIGH-IMPEDENCE LOAD. RESEARCH DIRECTED TOWARD IMPROVING THE PERFORMANCE OF THE POS IN THE LONG-CONDUCTION TIME REGIME HAS BEEN FRUSTRATED BY THE INABILITY OF COMPUTATIONAL TOOLS TO OPERATE IN THE PARAMETER REGIMES OF INTEREST ...

  5. CORRELATION OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS EFFECTS DATA TO DIRECTED AND KINETIC EFFECTS

    SBC: ORION International Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SEVERAL DIRECTED (DE) AND KINETIC ENERGY (KE) WEAPON TECHNOLOGIES ARE PRESENTLY IN THE LABORATORY, EITHER AS DESIGN CONCEPTS OR PROTOTYPE MODELS. FORTUNATELY, NONE OF THESE TECHNOLOGIES HAVE BEEN PUT TO FULL OPERATIONAL USE. THUS, REAL DATA IS LACKING OF THE EFFECTS TO THESE TECHNOLOGIES TO AN ARRAY OF MATERIALS AND STRUCTURES. HOWEVER, NUCLEAR WEAPON TECHNOLOGY HAS BEEN RESEARCHED IN-DEPTH FOR TH ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF A HARDNESS ASSURANCE THROUGHPUT OPTIMIZED TESTER

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    INTEGRATED CIRCUIT (IC) PRODUCTION LINES OPERATING UNDER MIL-I-38535 HAVE RADIATION HARNESS ASSURANCE (RHA) AND RELIABILITY DESIGNED AND BUILT INTO THEIR TECHNOLOGY. HARDNESS AND RELIABILITY ARE MAINTAINED BY APPLYING STATISTICAL PROCESS CONTROLS (SPCS) TO TEST STRUCTURES FABRICATED ALONGSIDE PRODUCT MICROCIRCUITS. MEASUREMENT AND DATA REDUCTION TECHNIQUES PRESENTLY EMPLOYED ARE SLOW AND COSTLY AN ...

  8. ELECTRICALLY DRIVEN TWO-STAGE GUN FOR TACTICAL APPLICATIONS

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    HYPERVELOCITY GUN TECHNOLOGY WILL PLAY A DECISIVE ROLE IN THE FUTURE TACTICAL BATTLEFIELD. WEAPONS WITH MUZZLE VELOCITIES OF 2.5 TO 4KN/S (8,000 TO 12,000 FT/S) OR GREATER HAVE POTENTIAL USES IN ALMOST EVERY ASPECT OF WARFARE. RECENT ADVANCES IN PULSED OWER TECHNOLOGY, SPECIFICALLY THE HIGH ENERGY DENSITIES AVAILABLE WITH INTERGRATED PULSE FORMING NETWORKS (IPFNS) AND ADVANCED ROTATING ELECTRICAL ...

  9. FAST-RISE HIGH PRESSURE GAUGE FOR LONG-DURATION NUCLEAR AIRBLAST

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    KTECH PROPOSES TO DEVELOP OPTICAL HOPKINSON BAR PRESSURE GAUGES FOR MEASUREMENT OF AIRBLAST ON UNDERGROUND NUCLEAR EVENTS. THE BARS WILL BE MADE OF SINGLE CRYSTAL SAPPHIRE WHICH HAS A MEASURED YIELD STRENGTH IN EXCESS OF 10 GPA. THESE GAUGES WILL HAVE A RISE TIME OF ABOUT 2 US OF DATA. DURING PHASE I, WE WILL CONSTRUCT AND CALIBRATE A STRESS-INDUCED BIREFRINGENCE GAUGE (SIBG) WHICH WOULD NEED NO E ...

  10. IMPROVED FLASHBOARDS FOR HIGH POWER OPENING SWITCHES

    SBC: North Star Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    NSRC PROPOSES AN AMBITIOUS EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM DESIGNED TO INVESTIGATE FLASHBOARD PLASMA SOURCE IMPROVEMENTS WITH APPLICATION EXISTING OPENING SWITCHES IN DNA SIMULATORS. WE WILL INVESTIGATE POWER SYSTEM OPTIONS INCLUDING DC CHARGING AND EXTERNAL TRIGGER SYSTEMS WITH MODEST TRIGGER REQUIREMENTS. MODIFICATIONS TO THE ELECTRODE GEOMETRY OF THE FLASHBOARDS ARE EXPECTED TO IMPROVE DC HOLD-OFF CAPABIL ...
