Back Particle Accelerator Ruggedization and Test Bed for Naval Integration and Weapons of Mass Destruction Detection
|Division||Graduate School of Engineering & Applied Science|
Colson, William B.
|Sponsor||Raytheon Company (Other)|
|Summary||This collaborative research will focus on the development of ruggedized accelerators to be used for Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) detection for shipboard operations using modeling and system physics analysis. The collaborators will study and compile data on ship vibration, temperature, humidity, etc. as these variables affect sensitive equipment for accelerator technology. Raytheon and NPS will conduct physics and engineering feasibility design on Superconducting Radio Frequency (SFR) and Room Temperature RF (RTRF) cavities that may be applicable for shipboard integration. In addition, the partners will conduct design studies to propose possible accelerator locations in current naval vessels as well as next generation Navy vessels such as the DDX Destroyer and CGX Cruiser.|
