Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: W ray morgan
Award Amount: $49,498.00
Abstract:
The potential for using composite materials in constructing space station environments appears to be desirable due to the substantial payload weight savings of polymer composites, as compared to moving more conventional materials from earth. in the hostile environment of space, joints must be highly… More

Principal Investigator: George P Ettenheim Jr
Award Amount: $498,000.00
Abstract:
Measurement of wind and turbulence by remote sensing to a height of at least one kilometer above ground level has become well established. such systems are known as doppler acoustic sounding systems (dass) or sound detection and ranging (sodar). these systems utilize sound at relatively low… More

DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF AN EXPENDABLE GLIDER SYSTEM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Dr P B S Lissaman
Award Amount: $500,000.00
Abstract:
Dispersing sonar buoys over a two-dimensional ocean area would be facilitated if some of the buoys would glide perpendicular to the flight path of the dispensing airplane. to develop the technology for this lateral flight, a program is proposed which, after our inter-actions with the sponsor on… More
