After a decade of war, America’s defense budget is almost certain to see reductions over the next several years. The full impact of austerity on the Navy as the principle vehicle of U.S. power projection however must be approximated in the context of an evolving geopolitical landscape. Although the Navy is unrivaled in size, capability, and reach, the development of anti- access/ area denial (A2/AD) weapon systems by rising powers in two strategically critical theaters—the Persian Gulf and the Asia Pacific—represents a growing problem. Maritime power dynamics are changing: China’s naval ascendancy combined with its ambitions in the South China Sea risks sparking a naval arms race, while Iranian belligerence in the Gulf threatens the free flow of oil in an already volatile part of the world. If the Navy is to continuing advancing a strategy of global engagement, it must find a way to projecting power even in a constrained future resource environment. How can the Navy continue to promote U.S. interests while operating on a reduced budget? Using scenario analysis under three different budget cases—status quo, sequestration, and a hypothetical compromise solution—this paper assesses the outlook for U.S. naval presence and power projection in the Persian Gulf and Asia Pacific over the remainder of the decade. To preserve its global dominance and regional influence, the Navy must invest in developing counter A2/AD systems and continue to emphasize power projection. Rather than shrink from a forward deployed posture, the Navy must adopt a prioritized engagement strategy that allocates ships with region-specific capabilities against region-specific security concerns. By maintaining forward presence, and by focusing on its core-competency—power projection—even with fewer ships, the Navy can do more with less.

The purpose of this study was to determine if the alpha energy spectrum in a Passive Implanted Planar Silicon (PIPS) detector, as modeled by MCNPX [1], can be used to design a radon stripping algorithm for a continuous air monitor (CAM). This stripping algorithm would be employed to discriminate naturally occurring radioisotopes from the anthropogenic for nuclear safety -related applications. It is hoped that using an algorithm based on MCNPX simulations, the CAM will not be prone to false alarms when radon levels are dynamic as identified in other CAM systems [2,3]. This work is focused on the design of the next generation air particulate detector (NGAPD) for the United States Navy. The primary isotope of interest is Co-60. This radionuclide emits a beta with an average energy of 96 keV. Therefore, once deposited on the CAM filter, it will produce a beta continuum seen by the PIPS detector. In addition, as radon progeny is deposited on the air filter, these will give rise to characteristic alpha peaks and a beta continuum. This is primarily an issue in port-or land-based applications. Ultimately, measurement of a radon alpha spectrum is desired to predict the amount of beta activity which would be measured from the radon progeny decay chains. All excess beta activity could then be attributed to anthropogenic sources once the radon progeny contributions have been stripped out.

This report provides soil evaluation and characterization testing for the submarine bases at Kings Bay, Georgia, and Bangor, Washington, using triaxial testing at high confining pressures with different moisture contents. In general, the samples from the Bangor and Kings Bay sites appeared to be stronger than a previously used reference soil. Assuming the samples of the material were representative of the material found at the sites, they should be adequate for use in the planned construction. Since soils can vary greatly over even a small site, a soil specification for the construction contractor would be needed to insure that soil variations found at the site would meet or exceed the requirements. A suggested specification for the Bangor and Kings Bay soils was presented based on information gathered from references plus data obtained from this study, which could be used as a basis for design by the construction contractor.

Design and testing of the United States Navy’s next generation air particle detector (NGAPD) is presently underway. The NGAPD is intended for use in nuclear applications for the United States Navy and is being designed to detect airborne Co-60 with a reduction in false alarms and improved ease of use. Features being developed include gamma compensation, low maintenance, commercial off-the-shelf electronics, and spectrum simulation for quality assurance and functional testing applications. By supplying a spectrum simulator, the radon stripping algorithm can be running when a simulated anthropogenic source spectrum (e.g., from Co-60 or transuranics) is superimposed on the radon progeny spectrum. This will allow alarm levels to be tested when the air flow is running and the radon stripping algorithm is providing the instrument response output. Modern units evaluate source spectra with the air flow off and the radon spectrum absent thereby not testing the true system performance which comes out of the radon stripping algorithm. Testing results of the preliminary prototype show promise along with computer simulations of source spectra. Primary testing results taken to date include gamma compensation, thermal insults, vibration and spectrum simulation.
