  1. Stand-off Detection of Alternative Signatures of Radiation

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: DTRA122014

    Prevention of the smuggling of special nuclear materials (SNMs) and other radioactive material into the United States is a key national security objective. It is desirable to have a system capable of stand-off detection to monitor and rapidly alert the presence of covert nuclear materials. In Phase I, Tanner in collaboration with the University of New Mexico have established the method of inferrin ...

  2. Stochastic Consideration of Cased Munitions for Casing Breakup and Airblast

    SBC: Karagozian & Case            Topic: DTRA102003

    The objective for the proposed effort is to develop a robust, effective, and deterministic/stochastic means to characterize blast effects from cased explosives pertaining to computing responses of structural components. This also includes creation of appropriate engineering aids/software/algorithms for transforming these blast effects into structural loads suitable for incorporation into high-fid ...

  3. Solutions for Single-Event Effects in Ultra Deep Submicron Semiconductor Technologies Using Simulation and Layout Techniques

    SBC: ROBUST CHIP INC.            Topic: DTRA102008

    This project offers two powerful and efficient solutions to solve the mounting problems in design of radiation hard electronics: a range of ultra hard, high performance, sequential and combinatorial logic blocks based on the new, and enormously effective, LEAP RHBD layout methodology, and an accurate and efficient analysis, design, and simulation solution for single events. The Layout design ...

  4. Cheetah-Traks: Subterranean Navigation Via Inertial Sensors and Multipath Resistant RF Ranging

    SBC: TrellisWare Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB0101006

    The integrated Cheetah Traks and Virtual Inertial Navigation System (V-INS) units will create a denied GPS navigation system capable of tracking unit locations and maintain that accuracy across a range of dynamics and environmental conditions. The target system is targeted to contain less than four components (IMU, computer, communication unit and display) and adds minimal weight to the user.

  5. Predicting Ultra High-Performance Concrete (UHPC) Residual Strength after Multiple Penetrations and Blasts

    SBC: Karagozian & Case            Topic: DTRA092013

    The primary objective for the proposed effort is to develop innovative fast-running models (FRMs) that are based on data generated by High-Fidelity Physics-Based (HFPB) models; these FRMs are to predict the damage, responses, and subsequent residual strength of walls and slabs composed of UHPC or HPC materials of the kind that would be used in hardened bunkers. Of particular interest is to create ...

  6. Cost-Effective Gas Flow Data Sensors

    SBC: Exquadrum, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08007

    Current high energy, multi-room test facilities operated in support of Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) efforts suffer from a lack of robust sensors that can provide a cost-effective approach to obtaining dynamic pressure induced gas flows during internal detonations events. Exquadrum, Inc proposes a new sensor package that utilizes existing piezoelectric sensor technologies, but incorporat ...

  7. The Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects on Nano-technology Microelectronics

    SBC: ROBUST CHIP INC.            Topic: DTRA082001

    Robust Chip Inc. (RCI) and Stanford University (Stanford – subcontractor) propose a project with two main parts: 1. Development of a unique new layout and circuit design methodology for complete protections against both single and multiple single event errors with a minimal circuit and layout overhead. 2. Development, and integration with fundamental design flow technology (physical design and v ...

  8. Directed Mono-Energetic Gamma Source

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: DTRA08001

    For long-range active interrogation of Special Nuclear Materials, an intense beam of mono-energetic directed gamma rays is required. In Phase I of this project, RadiaBeam developed the design for such a source, based on Inverse Compton Scattering (ICS), and determined its feasibility. The key innovation in our source is a novel Interaction Region system design, which significantly increases the av ...

  9. Measuring Residual Concrete Strength After Penetration and Blast

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: DTRA07010

    During Phase I, IFOS demonstrated the feasibility of using embedded optical Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensor networks to measure resistance to penetration (for subsequent weapons) in concrete damaged by a weapon projectile. FBG sensors are well suited for monitoring dynamic strain in concrete structures due to their small size, low cost, ability to be embedded internally or surface mounted; and th ...

  10. A fast pulse, intermediate flux, bench-top, high rep-rate x-ray source for PRS diagnostic calibration

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: DTRA06013

    Presently, commercial and government radiation test facilities do not have convenient, reliable calibration systems for routine, day-in, day-out checks on x-ray and neutron detectors or their filter arrays. Lack of such calibration systems compromises the quality of the testing, and leads to wasted time and manpower resources used to resolve the ensuing uncertainties. We are developing a compact, ...
