  1. FINE WATER MIST SYSTEM FOR REPLACEMENT OF HALON 1301 FIRE EXTINGUISHER SYSTEMS

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    U.S. production of Halons will decrease from 28 million lbs in 1988 to zero in 1995 to meet the U.S. commitments to the Montreal Protocol. A major use of Halon 1301 is as a fire suppression flooding agent. The use of fine water mists from two-fluid atomizing nozzles is proposed as a replacement for Halon 1301 fire suppression systems, especially for Class B fuel fires. The optimum droplet size and ...

  3. Reverse Ceometry X-Ray Source Volume CT

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    X-ray computed tomography (CT) is widely used in defense, aerospace, and industrial applications. CT provides flaw detection, density measurement, accurate dimensions, morphology, assembly verification, material property analysis, and other vauable information. However, a major limitation of CT has been the inspection time required for 100% coverage of an object, since a single slice through the o ...

  5. Silicon Nitride Fibers by Laser Chemical Vapor Deposition

    SBC: Containerless Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Laser chemical vapor deposition (LCVD) silicon nitride fiber growth is proposed, to make fibers which have the strength and oxidative stability required for advanced high temperature structural applications. This method has been demonstrated to yield continuous, high strength fibers of materials such as boron, silicon, and others, with diameters in the range 10-30 microns, tensile strengths up to ...

  6. Design of Prototype Storage and Delivery Device for Cryogenic Solid Hydrogen Propellants

    SBC: Cryogenic Engineering            Topic: N/A

    The proposal is for an engineering design, including detailed shop drawings, of a cryostat for the condensation of solid hydrogen from the vapor phase, for storage with a heat leak of less than 10-4 watts/grams of hydrogen, and with controlled expulsion to a combustion chamber at greater than atmospheric pressure. The cryostat uses liquid helium as a coolant, and has a transparent freezing chamber ...

  7. AN ANALYTIC-BASED SENSOR MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE PACKAGE

    SBC: Data Fusion Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DATA FUSION CORPORATION PROPOSES THE PHASE I INVESTIGATION INTO THE MATHEMATICAL ISSUES INVOLVED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN ANALYTICAL MODEL FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF SENSOR RESOURCES IN TACTICAL AIRCRAFT. THIS MODEL WILL INCORPORATE THE ANALYTIC HIERARCHY PROCESS (AH), A MATRIX EIGENVALUE-EIGENVECTOR METHOD FOR FORMULATING A SCALE OF ABSOLUTE PRIORITIES FOR PAIR-WISE RELATIVE PRIORITIES AMONG POTENTIAL ...

  9. ADAPTIVE FLC/VLSI OPTICAL FOCAL PLANE PROCESSOR

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED WORK AIMS TO DEVELOP OPTOELECTRONIC IMAGE PROCESSING DEVICES THAT INTEGRATE PHOTODETECTORS AND LIGHT MODULATORS INTO LARGE ARRAYS OF "SMART" PIXELS. THESE DEVICES EXPLOIT A HYBRID OPTOELECTRONIC TECHNOLOGY THAT PLACES FAST FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTAL (FLC) LIGHT MODULATORS DIRECTLY ATOP VERSATILE SILICON VLSI CIRCUITRY. THE DEVICES NOW PROPOSED WILL INCORPORATE MULTIPLE PHOTODETECTOR ...

  10. Development of Ferroelectric Liquid Crystals with Enhanced Nonlinear Optical Properties

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    A new class of nonlinearly active materials has been developed: x(2) ferroelectric liquid crystals (x(2) FLCs). This class has several advantages over other classes of materials such as crystals or poled photochromic polymers. FLCs readily form low-light-loss polar films of any thickness; no poling is necessary; the FLC nonlinear susceptibility is intrinsically thermodynamically stable; and FLC op ...
