  1. AERODYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF SUBSONIC VERTICAL TAKE-OFF AND LANDING AIR VEHICLE

    SBC: Corpdray Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ADVENT OF THE CORDRAY ROTARY ENGINE HAS MADE POSSIBLE SUBSTANTIAL INCREASES IN THE POWER TO WEIGHT RATIO AVAILABLE TO THE AIRCRAFT DESIGNER. ENGINE SELECTION IS HISTORICALLY THE PRIMARY DETERMINATIVE OFVEHICLE DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE. THE AVAILABILITY OF THIS ENGINE ALONGWITH ADVANCES IN COMMAND AND CONTROL ELECTRONICS MAKES POSSIBLE A NEW CLASS OF VEHICLE CAPABLE OF VERTICAL TAKE OFF AND THEN ...

  2. CLOUD-FREE CONDITIONS SPECIFIED FROM SATELLITE

    SBC: Metsat, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MANY DOD WEAPON AND RECONNAISSANCE SYSTEMS ARE SERIOUSLY IMPACTED BY CLOUDS. NEW SYSTEMS WILL CONTINUE TO BE CONSTRAINED BY CLOUD OBSTRUCTIONS IN THE LINE-OF-SIGHT BETWEEN THE SYSTEM PLATFORM AND THE TARGET. CLOUD-FREE LINE-OF-SIGHT (CFLOS) EVALUATIONS USING CONVENTIONALLY OBSERVED CLOUD COVER HAVE BEEN PERFORMED FOR MANY YEARS TO OPTIMIZE THE PERFORMANCE OF THESE SYSTEMS. WITH DOD SYSTEMS REQUIRI ...

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF A STANDARD PROPELLANT TO LINER PEEL TEST METHOD

    SBC: Electro Magnetic            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED EFFORT IS AIMED AT IMPROVING THE QUANTITATIVE RESULTS OF THE PROPELLANT-LINER PEEL TEST THAT IS CURRENTLY BEING USED. THE APPROACH TO BE UTILIZED INVOLVES STANDARDIZING THE MECHANICAL TEST PROCEDURE AND IDENTIFYING OTHER PARAMETERS THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THE PEEL THAT CAN BE CONSISTENTLY AND ACCURATELY MEASURED.

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF HYBRID MODEL FOR ASSESSING CONCENTRATIONS OF TOXIC EFFLUENT AT AIR FORCE INSTALLATIONS

    SBC: Cermak Peterka Petersen Inc            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT COMPUTER MODELS USED TO PREDICT VAPOR CLOUD LENGTH, CONCENTRATION AND DURATION AT AIR FORCE INSTALLATIONS DO NOT PROPERLY ACCOUNT FOR THE EFFECTS OF STRUCTURES. STRUCTURES CAN ACT TO TRAP THE CLOUD AND INCREASE THE CLOUD DIMENSIONS, THEREBY POSSIBLY REDUCING DOWNWIND CONCENTRATIONS AND INCREASING THE CLOUD'S LATERAL EXTENT. RECENT RESEARCH CONDUCTED BY CPP HAS SHOWN THAT THE TRAPPING AND I ...

  5. DEVELOPMLENT OF A LAUNDRY MONITOR FOR DETECTION OF HOT PARTICLE CONTAMINATION

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    TWO APPROACHES WILL BE EXAMINED TO SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THESENSITIVITY OF LAUNDRY MONITORS TO DETECT AND SPECIFY LOCATION OF HOT PARTICLES ON LAUNDERED GARMENTS. THESE PROPOSED TECNIQUES HAVE HIGH POTENTIAL FOR DETECTING BOTH LOW ENERGY BETA AND ALPHA PARTICLE RADIATION AS WELL AS IMPROVING SENSITIVITY BY REDUCING BACKGROUND COUNT RATE.

  6. IMPROVED NEUTRON SPECTROMETER AND EXPOSURE METER

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    THE UNCERTAINTY IN MEASURING NEUTRON DOSE EQUIVALENT RATES RESULTS IN UNCERTAINTY IN ASSIGNMENT OF THE PROPER DOSE TO OCCUPATIONAL RECORDS AND CAN RESULT IN IMPROPER IMPLEMENTATION OF CONTROLS TO LIMIT THE EXPOSURE. A NOVEL PORTABLE NEUTRON SPECTROMETER IS PROPOSED WHICH WILL REDUCE THE UNCERTAINTY OF SUCH MEASUREMENTS TO LESS THAN 20%. MANYCOMPONENTS OF THIS DEVICE ARE COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE. SYS ...

  7. INTERACTIVE DISTRIBUTED LOGISTICS MANAGEMENT

    SBC: Caps Logistics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE PRACTICALITY OF AN INTERACTIVE, HIERARCHICAL, DISTRIBUTED PLANNING SYSTEM FOR LOGISTICS MANAGEMENT. WE WILL DESIGN A SYSTEM THAT WILL SUPPORT PARALLEL, ASYNCHRONOUS, INTERACTIVE LOGISTICS PLANNING AT MULTIPLE LEVELS OF THE MANAGEMENT HIERARCHY AND AT MULTIPLE SITES SO THAT MANY PEOPLE COOPERATIVELY BUILD AND ADMINISTER A LOGISTICS PLAN. FOR EXAMPLE, A HIGHER-LEVEL ...

  8. MULTILEVEL ADAPTIVE METHODS FOR THE EAGLE CODE

    SBC: Colorado Research Development            Topic: N/A

    THE EAGLE GRID GENERATION CODE IS A WIDELY USED SOFTWARE TOOL FOR GENERATING COMPUTATIONALLY UNIFORM GRIDS THAT FIT IRREGULAR PHYSICAL DOMAINS. BASED ON ELLIPTIC GRID GENERATION, IT USES A BLOCKSTRUCTURED APPROACH TO ACCOMMODATE VERY IRREGULAR REGIONS AND POINT DISTRIBUTION FUNCTIONS TO REDUCE FLOW-SOLVER TRUNCATION ERROR. IT ALSO INCORPORATES AS EULER SOLVER FOR INVISCID FLOW CALCULATIONS. WHILE ...

  9. NONDESTRUCTIVE TESTS AND EVALUATION TECHNIQUES FOR SOLID ROCKET MOTORS

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH PROGRAM WILL PROVIDE AN EVALUATION TOOL FOR ASSESSING THE EFFECTS OF MANUFACTURING AND IN-SERVICE MATERIAL ANOMALIES ON SUBSEQUENT SOLID ROCKET MOTOR PERFORMANCE. THE EVALUATION TOOL CONSISTS OF A NONLINEAR FINITE ELEMENT PROGRAM WITH A COMPOSITE DAMAGE AND FAILURE CONSTITUTIVE MODEL. THE EVALUATION TOOL WILL BE VERIFIED BY CORRELATION WITH LABORATORY TESTS OF DESIGNATED COMP ...

  10. OPTICAL BEAM STEERING AND SHAPING USING FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTAL SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATORS

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    ONE FACTOR LIMITING THE USE OF OPTICS IN APPLICATIONS SUCH AS COMMUNICATIONS, LASER RADAR, AND OPTICAL PROCESSING IS THE LACK OF A SATISFACTORY TECHNOLOGY FOR THE STEERING AND SHAPING OF OPTICAL BEAMS. SIMILAR PROBLEMS HAVE EXISTED FOR RADAR AND RADIO COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS. IN THOSE TECHNOLOGIES, HOWEVER, THE PROBLEMS HAVE LARGELY BEEN SOLVED BY THE USE OF PHASED ARRAY ANTENNA TECHNIQUES. DISPLAY ...
