FY 2004 Accomplishments

  • Demonstrated increased cold x-ray yield on DTRA simulators.

  • Continued NWE test customer support at the West Coast Facility (WCF).

  • Demonstrated 60% increase in warm x-ray dose rate at the West Coast Facility (WCF).

  • Supported Sandia Defense Programs strategic component response model validation testing.

  • Initiated new and innovative design to enable major improvements in warm x-ray sources.

  • Supported Army NWE tests of the Stryker vehicle at the Large Blast and Thermal Simulator (LBTS)


FY 2005 Plans

  • Advance the cold x-ray source and debris mitigation system (DMS) technology readiness levels to enable NWE model validation and test support.

  • Continue warm x-ray source technology development.

  • Modernize the obsolete data acquisition system instrumentation at the WCF.

  • Continue NWE test customer support and agent defeat database development at the WCF.

  • Integrate simulator validation and verification efforts for new code development

  • Begin development of a debris electron simulation capability that will be used to analyze space systems against natural and nuclear weapon induced system charging phenomena both as a unique environment and in combination with other nuclear environments where synergistic effects are suspected.

  • Continue terrorist threat assessments of civilian structures on LBTS.

  • Conduct air blast testing of Army vehicles on LBTS.


FY 2006 Plans

  • Optimize the cold x-ray source and debris mitigation system DMS performance and analytical capability for producing cold x-rays on existing DoD machines.

  • Develop advanced opening switch technology to reduce x-ray pulse widths and control pulse.

  • Demonstrate and characterize a debris electron source test capability

  • Develop an experimental combined environment capability at the WCF to investigate which discrete environments must be provided in combination to validate and verify hardness of military systems.

  • Demonstrate two-times faster rise-time hot x-ray and gamma ray capabilities.

  • Begin initial low level development of a flyer plate capability (strategic level cold x-ray simulation) on the Light Initiated High Explosive (LIHE) Simulator in collaboration with SNL.


FY 2007 Plans

  • Demonstrate cold x-ray source and DMS performance on DOE machines. End-state is a scalable capability that can be used on the much larger DOE machines to validate DOE and DoD models and to facilitate subsystem and system level tests.

  • Demonstrate and characterize advanced opening switch technology to reduce x-ray pulse widths and control pulse.

  • Implement debris electron source test capability in support of missile defense and satellite programs

  • Implement lab-scale combined environment test at the WCF for verifying hardness of military systems.

  • Apply fast rise-time hot x-ray and gamma ray capabilities to electronics validation.

  • Continue development of a Light Initiated High Explosive LIHE flyer plate capability in collaboration with SNL.
