  1. Hard X-Ray Spectrometer for Use During Radiation Tests and High Gain/Bandwidth Integrated Photodetec

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

    We propose to develop a differential absorption spectrometer that is small enough to be compatible with a test package in a bremsstrahlung test of electronics. In contrast to previous spectrometers, which use individual filter-detector combinations, the present instrument consists of concentric hemispherical shells. This design minimizes the spectrometer's mass, allowing it to be placed in front ...

  2. Multilayer Capacitors Utilizing Phase Change Ceramics for High Energy Storage

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    For this Phase I SBIR program, high volumetric efficiency, energy storage capacitors are proposed using phase change ceramics. These materials are nonlinear dielectrics that make use of electric field induced antiferroelectric to ferroelectric phase transition to store more energy per volume than is possible with linear dielectrics (10 J/cm3 compared to 2 J/cm3). Furthermore phase change materia ...

  3. Modeling Enhanced Energy Release in Turbulent Exothermic Flows in Closed Chambers by an Inverse Meth

    SBC: Enig Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Toward understanding how turbulent mixing with air of detonation products of fuel-rich explosives results in further combustion of the detonation products and, therefore, enhanced lethality, we first consider an exothermic reaction of a premixed fuel/oxidizer in a closed vessel in the limit of zero Mach number and infinite Reynolds, Peclet, and Damkohler numbers. To help elucidate the main mechan ...

  4. Thin Buried Oxide Densification for Radiation Hardened 80nm BOX SIMOX Substrates

    SBC: IBIS TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    SIMOX (Separation by IMplanted Oxygen) technology achieves total dielelectric isolation of active device regions from the substrate and reduces the collection path for ionized charges via the built-in buried oxide which restricts charge movement. Advances in SIMOX technology include radiation hardened memories and gate arrays for space applications, ULSI DRAMS for low voltage operation, thin film ...

  5. High-Order Godunov Schemes for Multiphase Gas particulate Flowfield Modeling and Simulation

    SBC: Krispin Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed work aims at deeloping two major new innovqative capabiliities for the High-Order Godunov (HOG) technology. The first new capability is in the area of low Mach number problems; new code based on the projection method scheme will be developed for complex 3D multiphase flow fields, in particular, the post explosion cloud rise phenomenon includin gparticle transport. The second new ca ...

  6. A Megapixel Gamma Camera for Arms Control Verification

    SBC: Lexitek Inc            Topic: N/A

    Lexitek proposes to develop an imaging gamma-ray detector with 1024 x 1024 pixels for arms control verification. The proposed detector significantly enhances the resolution of fissionable material distribution without compromising energy resolution. The detector consists of a scintillating crystal and associated sensors which determine the energy and position of the scintillation with high spat ...

  7. Distributed Interactive Simulation of Nuclear Weapons Effects

    SBC: Micro Analysis & Design Inc            Topic: N/A

    Environments created from a nuclear event can have a great impact upon the operation of military forces on the battlefield. It is imperative that the associated nuclear effects are portrayed in an environment such as Dirstributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) so that changes canbe made during the weapon system design process to mitigate nuculear effects. These effectscan be extended to other appl ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. High Resolution Wind Forecasts Using Multi-Sensor Satellite Surface Characterization Data

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Mission Research Corporation (MRC) will develop a near real-time high resolution multi-sensor satellite surface characterization retrieval aand mesoscale model assimilation technique to predict land surface efffects on atmospheric dynamics. We will include time-varying land cover characteristics and will investigate incorporating satellite-based surface moisture and cloud liquid water data. Atmo ...

  10. Fully Equivalent Operational Model of SMMARC Chemistry

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The impacts of nuclear weapons effect can now only be simulated through the use of very complex and computationally intensive models. This limits the ability to perform thorough engagement investigations. Attempts to reduce model run times have previously traded prediction fidelity for speed reduction by simplifying models. We propose the application of a new innovative approach to accelerate t ...
