Recent advances in directed energy weapons (DEW) require radar systems to implement front door protection against high power signals. Although nonlinear protection elements have been successfully employed in the past, fast ultra wideband (UWB) and high power microwave (HPM) signals are not successfully blocked by most current circuit protection technologies. This proposal details the development of a quasi-passive, solid state electro-optic terminal protection system (EOTPS) to effectively block UWB and HPM signals from the front end of radar systems. The device uses power from the incoming transient to switch the signal line to ground. But because the system as a whole requires no external power other than the transient, it can be considered a passive device. Inherent delay in the system permits the switch to become fully conductive before the transient arrives, effectively creating a system with a negative switching time. This allows the entire transient to be reflected, in contrast to other high power terminal protection techniques which allow part of the transient to pass to the LNA.

The potential threat of directed energy weapons (DEW) and other high peak power electromagnetic transient signals require radar systems to implement front door protection against high power signals. Fast ultra wideband (UWB) and high power microwave (HPM) signals are not successfully blocked by most current protection technologies. The Phase I work demonstrated a quasi-passive, solid state electro-optic terminal protection system (EOTPS) to effectively block UWB and HPM signals from the front end of radar systems. The device uses power from the incoming transient to switch the signal line to ground. Because the system as a whole requires no external power other than the transient, it can be considered a passive device. Inherent delay in the system permits the switch to become fully conductive before the transient arrives, effectively creating a system with a negative switching time. This allows the entire transient to be reflected, in contrast to other high power terminal protection techniques which allow part of the transient to reach the LNA. The Phase II proposal presents a plan to further develop the performance of the EOTPS for higher frequencies and to coordinate with two prime contractors in developing test validation procedures to integrate this technology into BMDS architectures.

A personal welding enclosure has a rigid support frame and a tent-like enclosure defining an inner work chamber. The enclosure, which is supported by the rigid frame, is beneficially formed from impermeable, flame-proof and/or flame-resistant fabric having desired strength, durability and thermal insulation characteristics. A pneumatic automatic shut off control system monitors variables in and around the enclosure, alerts personnel to the existence of potentially unsafe conditions within the enclosure and automatically terminates welding and/or other hot-work when an unsafe condition is detected.

This proposal details the development of a variable pulsed power system and custom load that simulates the audio, visual, and tactile response of a variety of explosive devices. The system operates by tailoring the driver parameters, such as voltage and current discharge profile, through the stimulus generator at the operating point that best matches the signature of the explosive device. The device resets itself and can be operated multiple times to mimic various explosive devices and distances in a single training session. The system will not harm the either the trainee or the simulation facility and will leave no trace of its operation such as spent projectiles, paint or other debris.

Lean-burn gasoline engines have difficulty reliably igniting fuel mixtures at sufficiently high air to fuel ratios. Common ignition systems are based on a spark gap driven by a pulse transformer ignition coil). Unfortunately, these systems have small plasma excitation areas, are slow, wear down the spark plug electrodes, and are not suitable for high pressure engines. The use of transient plasma ignition systems has already been demonstrated as effective in standard gasoline engines. This work extends the application of transient plasma ignitions into high pressure, lean burn engines by developing a Spark Plug Equivalent device driven by a tailored high voltage, pulsed power source. Two objectives will be achieved in Phase I. First, transient plasma generation will be demonstrated at 100 atmospheres in dry air, with corona extending past the Spark Plug Equivalent and into the ignition chamber. This will be documented with a high speed camera in a pressure vessel with a window. Second, the ignition of lean fuel ratios of 20:1 at 100 atmospheres will be demonstrated at temperatures similar to those in an internal combustion engine. Phase II and beyond will demonstrate the implementation and reliable operation of transient plasma based ignition systems in lean burn, high pressure gasoline engines. This system will ignite a significantly larger volume of the engine cylinder when compared to a spark plug based system, minimizing the effects of a non-uniform fuel/air mixture. Thus, a faster burn rate with a more consistent burn will be achieved. When compared with standard ignition system timing, this method requires less advancement before the piston reaches top dead center, resulting in higher efficiency. The Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards set a 54.5 miles per gallon average fuel economy goal for 2025. This provides a strong incentive for automobile manufacturers to improve their fuel economy fleet wide. Transient plasma ignition has already demonstrated its ability to provide increased fuel economy in standard engines. Lean burn, high pressure engines provide another way to increase efficiency. The merger of these technologies provides one avenue that should be considered in order to meet the efficiency standards.
