  1. Low Cost, Portable X-Ray Simulator Development

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

    We propose, in Phase I and Phase II, to build an X-ray simulator capable of easy transportation between sites which can be built for a low cost (

  2. 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 ...

  3. Speed-Accuracy Measures for Distributed Interactive Simulation of Nuclear Weapons Effects

    SBC: Pacific-sierra Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Using distributed interactive simulation (DIS) to conduct effective training, analyses, or mission support in a tactical nuclear weapons effects (NWE) environment requires realistic computer generated forces (CGF) that are sensitive to such effects. This level of sensitivity requires CGF to apply valid and reliable speed-accuracy measures of environmental effects on human performance within the D ...

  4. Neural Optical Sensor for Countering the Proliferation of Biological and Chemical Weapons

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Physical Optics Corporation (POC)s proposes to develop a neural-optical sensor for biological and chemical (""NOSBC"") weapons, with vapor detection capability. The system will comprise a sensor head and a signal processing/display unit. The NOSBC will simultaneously perform multiple immunoassays with a one-second sensor response time; it will apply biometic fuzzy metrology to these parallel sig ...

  5. A Portable Gamma Spectrometer with a High Resolution CdTe Array Detector

    SBC: Radiation Safety Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a battery powered portable monitoring system capable of collecting and analyzing gamma spectra for specific radionuclides in the field. The system will consist of a high resolution cadmium telluride array detector and a small multichannel analyzer and data logger. The proposed monitoring system builds upon the design of the Ludlum Model 2350 Data Logger which is quite rugge ...

  6. SAMPLING INLET FOR FIRE/EXPLOSION SAFETY OF CWC TREATY VERIFICATION INSTRUMENTS

    SBC: Rvm Scientific, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    One of the Operation Directorate's top ten challenges is the development of handheld gas chromatography (GC) instrumentation for CW treaty verification. Toward this challenge, DNA has recently developed and reduced to practice innovative new technologies for low power, fast GC. An unsolved technical issue which still remains with small, portable GC devices is how to conduct fast and automated va ...

  7. Electrostatic Supercapacitor

    SBC: SIGMA TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Power electronic and pulse power applications for land based and airborne systems require capacitors with increasingly higher energy and power density that can withstand higher operating and process tempertures. Electrochemical double layer and metal oxide capacitors can satisfy many of the energy density speccifications but due to high ESRs their power density is 100-1000 times lowe than require ...

  8. High Energy Density Polymer Film Capacitors

    SBC: SIGMA TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Pulsed power systems for electric armament and compact weapons require increasingly smaller energy delivery systems and higher levels of reliability and component safety. Although new capacitor technologies such as double layer and electrostatic supercapacitors promise energy densities higher than 10J/cc, liquid impregnated film dielectrics with energy densities of 2.5J/cc, continue to be the sta ...

  9. Large Dynamic Range Shock Wave Measurements

    SBC: VISIDYNE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An optical sensor capable of producing 3-dimensional time resolved density maps characteristic of shock wavefronts at Mhz sampling rates is proposed. Each map is obtained from simultaneous measurements obtained with a novel refractometer capable of measuring integrated density fluctuations in air to better than 1 part in 3500 per centimeter path length at 1Mhz with good signal to noise (S/N=10). ...

  10. A GENERALIZED STRESS PARAMETER METHODOLOGY FOR THE SIMULATION FIDELITY EVALUATION OF SDI SYSTEM UGTS

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESIGNING A NUCLEAR SURVIVABLE, MILITARY SYSTEM DOES NOT CONSIST ONLY OF PUTTING TOGETHER "HARD" SYSTEM COMPONENTS. THE SUBSYSTEM AND SYSTEM MUST BE TESTED TO VERIFY HARDNESS. GIVEN THE DIFFICULT IN SIMULATING NUCLEAR ENVIRONMENTS, HARDNESS VERIFICATION IS PROBABLY THE MOST DIFFICULT PART OF A SYSTEM NUCLEAR SURVIVABILITY PROGRAM. IN ADDITION, SPECIFYING SYSTEM COMPONENT HARDENING REQUIREMENTS CAN ...
