Abstract
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 flow data during internal detonations events. Exquadrum, Inc proposes a new sensor package that utilizes existing piezoelectric sensor technologies, but incorporates new “clean sheet” design methodologies for the sensor housing and sensor ports in order to focus on producing an extremely cost-effective design. Exquadrum, Inc plans to demonstrate a functional prototype in the Phase I effort that will be the basis for validating the primary design assumptions and to help guide a follow-on Phase II effort.
