Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA06-047
Budget: 08/29/13 - 09/08/15

In the proposed Phase II Enhancement, Prism Computational Sciences, Corvid Technologies, and Bodkin Design and Engineering will perform experimental and simulation studies of the optical emission from impact flash events. This collaboration builds on the SBIR Phase II efforts of the Prism-Corvid team to apply high-fidelity simulation tools to s...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 70 A-2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

The interplay between accurate modeling and well-diagnosed experiments plays a critical role in advancing our understanding of high energy density laboratory plasmas (HEDLPs). It is vital to have high-fidelity computational physics tools that have well-tested radiation physics modeling, and that are readily accessible to researchers in the HEDLP...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Wisconsin, Madison

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF08-T020
Budget: 01/12/10 - 01/12/12

The objective of this proposal is to develop advanced radiation transport modeling techniques that accurately and efficiently treat transport in media having widely varying optical properties; in particular, hot gases and plasmas with optical depths ranging from the optically thin to the optically thick regimes. We will develop a hybrid diffusi...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Wisconsin, Madison

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF08-T020
Budget: 09/29/08 - 06/29/09

The objective of this proposal is to develop advanced radiation transport modeling techniques that accurately and efficiently treat transport in media having widely varying optical properties; in particular, hot gases and plasmas with optical depths ranging from the optically thin to the optically thick regimes. In doing this, we will develop a...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA06-047
Budget: 07/07/08 - 07/02/10

The objective of this project is to develop and benchmark advanced physics-based modeling techniques that can be used to reliably predict radiative signatures emitted during the early-time impact flash phase of hypervelocity impact events. Impact flash spectroscopy (IFS) has the potential to identify the presence of special nuclear materials ba...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA06-047
Budget: 03/26/07 - 09/26/07

The objective of this proposal is to develop and validate first-principles modeling tools that will significantly advance the use of spectroscopic techniques for identifying materials present in hypervelocity impact events. Impact flash spectroscopy (IFS) has the potential to identify the presence of special nuclear materials (SNM) during the i...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Nevada, Reno

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

In the fast ignition concept for inertial fusion energy, high-intensity short-pulse lasers are used to create energetic particles (protons and relativistic electrons) that propagate to the fuel within a compressed capsule. The efficient transport of these energetic particles to the fuel is a key issue in fast ignition research. A combination o...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will pursue the development of novel plasma technologies for creating highly efficient, short-wavelength radiation sources for use in next generation semiconductor chip manufacturing. The development of plasma radiation sources that efficiently emit light at wavelengths near 13.5 nm ...
