  1. A TIME-RESOLVED HARD X-RAY SPECTROMETER

    SBC: BERKELEY RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

  2. A PROPOSAL TO INVESTIGATE PHYSICAL LIMITING MECHANISMS IN NUCLEAR EXPLOSION INDUCED LIGHTNING (NEIL)

    SBC: Electro Magnetic            Topic: N/A

    NUCLEAR EXPLOSION INDUCED LIGHTNING (NEIL) REPRESENTS A POTENTIALLY SEVERE THREAT TO MILITARY SYSTEMS REQUIRED TO SURVIVE AND FUNCTION AFTER EXPOSURE IN THE SOURCE REGION OF A NUCLEAR EXPLOSION. WHEREAS THERE EXISTS SOME UNCERTAINTY ABOUT THE NATURE AND MAGNITUDE OF THE THREAT, ITS EXISTENCE IS CONCLUSIVELY DOCUMENTED IN THE FILM RECORD OF ATMOSPHERIC NUCLEAR TESTS IN THE PACIFIC DURING THE 1950'S ...

  5. CONTOURING THE OXYGEN ION ENERGY TO OBTAIN IMPROVED SIMOX MATERIAL

    SBC: IBIS TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF FORMING IMPROVED SIMOX MATERIAL BY CONTOURING THE ENERGY OF THE INCIDENT OXYGEN IONS. DURING THE IMPLANTATION PROCESS OF SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF SUBSTRATE MATERIAL IS REMOVED BY SPUTTERING. ALTHOUGH THE RANGE R(P) OF INCIDENT IONS REMAINS CONSTANT, TO FIRST ORDER, DURING THE IMPLANT, THE SPUTTERING AWAY OF THE SURFACE CAUSES INCIDENT IONS TO COME ...

  6. REAL-TIME DRY PROCESS NON-LIGHT SENSITIVE X-RAY FILM

    SBC: Imaging Science Technologies            Topic: N/A

    BOTH CURRENT (INF) AND PROPOSED (SALT) ARMS CONTROL TREATIES WILL REQUIRE MEANS OF VERIFICATION AND COUNTING OF MISSILES. CURRENT PROVISIONS PRECLUDE LOOKING INSIDE VEHICLES AND UNDER COVERS. ONE METHOD OF VISUALIZING CONTENTS WILL BE BY X-RAY, HOWEVER, CURRENT X-RAY FILMS ARE LIGHT-SENSITIVE AND REQUIRE CHEMICAL PROCESSING AND BECAUSE OF THIS, MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR DIFFICULT ENVIRONMENTS IN THE ...

  7. NUMERICALLY GENERATED FLOW VISUALIZATION FOR DIRECT COMPARISON WITH EXPERIMENTS IN NON-IDEAL AIRBLAST STUDIES

    SBC: PHYSICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DNA PRESENTLY SPONSORS EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATIONS OF NON-DEAL AIR BLAST AT ERNST MACH INSTITUTE (EMI), AND MODELING EFFORTS AT NSWC. PRESENTLY, THE EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS, IN THE FORM OF MACH-ZEHNDER INTERFEROMETER, BEING BOTH FUNCTIONS OF TEMPERATURE AND CONCENTRATION, CANNOT BE REDUCED FOR COMPARISON WITH THE COMPUTER RESULTS. IT IS PROPOSED THAT THE NECESSARY CAPABILITIES BE DEVELOPED TO FACILIT ...

  8. PULSED CONDUCTIVITY SENSOR

    SBC: Physicon Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NEWLY CONCEIVED SENSOR USES PULSED RF ENERGY CONDUCTED ALONG THE GROUND SURFACE TO IMMEDIATELY DETECT ANY OBJECT OR PERSON CROSSING A SELECTED AREA. THE SENSING ELEMENT IS THE GROUND ITSELF SINCE GROUND CONDUCTIVITY (RESISTANCE -1) CHANGES WHEN COMPRESSED BY THE WEIGHT OF AN OBJECT. USING ADVANCED SIGNAL PROCESSING TECHNIQUES, THE SENSOR TRANSLATES THE CHANGE IN GROUND CONDUCTIVITY INTO A WARNIN ...

  9. LOW COST IMPROVED SIMOX MATERIAL BY HIGH-CURRENT-DENSITY HIGH TEMPERATURE IMPLANTATION

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    SPIRE HAS RECENTLY DEMONSTRATED THAT SIMOX WAFERS OF SUFFICIENTLY HIGH QUALITY AND LOW DEFECT DENSITY TO SUPPORT BIPOLAR DEVICE APPLICATIONS CAN BE PRODUCED. TO ACHIEVE SUPERIOR QUALITY, HOWEVER, PRESENTLY REQUIRES PRODUCTION METHODS WHICH RESULT IN RELATIVELY HIGH COST. A RESEARCH PROGRAM IS PROPOSED WHICH WILL ESTABLISH THE FOUNDATION FOR LOWER COST, HIGHER THROUGHPUT PRODUCTION ALTERNATIVES WHI ...

  10. LABORATORY STUDY OF EXTENSION FAILURE IN NEVADA TEST SITE TUFFS

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CALCULATED GROUND MOTION FROM NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS PREDICT THAT AT LOCATIONS NEAR THE CAVITY THE ROCK FAILURE SURFACE WILL BE ENCOUNTERED IN EXTENSION DURING LATER STAGES OF UNLOAD. THE RESULTING HOOP FRACTURES WILL PRODUCE A FAILED ROCK ZONE SURROUNDING THE CAVITY. HIGH PRESSURE CAVITY GASES COULD INITIATE A HYDRAULIC FRACTURE THROUGH THE FRACTURE ROCK WHICH, UNDER THE WORST CONDITION, WOULD LEAD T ...
