Abstract
In this proposal we discuss several potential approaches to solutions of the current problems associated with transient gamma radiation circumvention in US Navy electronic systems. AET, Inc. proposes a comprehensive and cost-effective solution to the nuclear event circumvention problem, with wide application in US Navy strategic systems. Three options will be considered as solutions to the radiation circumvention problem. The first approach includes a radiation detector and a circumvention chip that controls the circumvention sequence for the entire system. The second approach provides each integrated circuit (IC) with an individual circumvention chip with onboard radiation detector and control electronics. The third approach integrates a radiation detector and control electronics on each IC chip. AET, Inc. engineers will develop the technology and will employ consultants and design/fabrication capabilities as needed. AET, Inc. is uniquely qualified to perform this work because of the long experience that its engineers and consultants have in radiation effects on integrated circuits. In addition, the AET, Inc. team has strong experience in modeling and design of integrated circuits for military applications. The AET, Inc. engineers as well as all of its consultants presently have SECRET security clearances.
