  1. WIND AND ENERGY BUDGET MEASUREMENT SYSTEM FOR DESERT TERRAIN

    SBC: American Minority            Topic: N/A

    A MICROCLIMATOLOGICAL WEATHER STATION DESIGN IS PROPOSED WHICH INCORPORATES RESEARCH QUALITY INSTRUMENTS CAPABLE OF MEASURING HEAT FLUXES DIRECTLY. RECENT TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES HAVE ENABLED THESE INSTRUMENTS TO OPERATE IN REMOTE, LOW POWER, UNATTENDED APPLICATIONS. ULTRASONIC TECHNOLOGY IS USED TO MEASURE SENSIBLE AND LATENT HEAT FLUXES USING THE EDDY CORRELATION METHOD. THE WEATHER STATION IS DE ...

  2. VIBRATORY AGING AND STRESS RELIEF (VASR) FOR A7005 ALUMINUM WELDS

    SBC: Applied Fusion Technologies            Topic: N/A

    THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP A METHOD THAT WILL IMPROVE BOTH THE RELIABILITY AND PREDICTABILITY OF WELDING AGE HARDENING ALUMINUM ALLOYS. THIS MAY BE ACCOMPLISHED BY USING AN IMPROVED VASR (VIBRATORY AGING AND STRESS RELIEF) SYSTEM, SQUARE WAVE PULSED ARC WELDING, AND POSSIBLY A COMBINATION OF BOTH TECHNIQUES. VASR TECHNIQUES INCLUDE TESTING IN BOTH THE SUBRESONANT AND RESO ...

  4. HIGH SPEED ELECTRO-OPTIC IMAGE SHUTTER USING FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTALS

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED WORK AIMS TO DEVELOP ELECTRO-OPTIC SHUTTERS THAT HAVE A UNIQUE COMBINATION OF OPERATING PROPERTIES RESULTING FROM THEIR USE OF FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTALS (FLCS). THE ELECTRO-OPTIC CHARACTERISTICS OF FLCS WOULD ALLOW THE SHUTTER FAST SWITCHING (20 MICROSECONDS) AT LOW DRIVE VOLTAGE (15 V) WITH VERY LITTLE ENERGY COMSUMPTION (5 MICROJOULES/SWITCHING). THE EMPHASIS OF THE EFFORT IS ON ...

  5. LASER BEAM POINTING USING DEFORMABLE HELIX FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTAL SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATORS

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    MECHANICAL BEAM STEERING SYSTEMS ARE LIMITED IN SPEED, COMPACTNESS, RELIABILITY, AND ACCURACY. SIMILAR DIFFICULTIES WERE ENCOUNTERED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF RADAR SYSTEMS. IN THE CASE OF RADAR, THE DEVELOPMENT OF PHASED ARRAY ANTENNAS ALLOWED GREATER SPEED AND FLEXIBILITY THAN WAS EVER POSSIBLE USING MECHANICALLY STEERED ANTENNAS. ELECTROOPTIC TECHNOLOGIES EXIST WHICH ARE CANDIDATES FOR REPLACING ME ...

  6. IMPROVED SLM FOR ADVANCED OPTICAL SIGNAL PROCESSING

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED WORK AIMS TO DEVELOP MULTI-LEVEL OR ANALOG SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATORS (SLMS) THAT INTEGRATE PHOTODETECTORS AND ELECTRONIC INTERAND INTRA-CELL PROCESSING. WE WILL INVESTIGATE A VARIETY OF ANALOG OPTICAL MODULATION EFFECTS IN FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTALS (FLCS), AND WE WILL DEVELOP APPROPRIATE MULTI-LEVEL ELECTRONIC DRIVING SCHEMES SUITABLE FOR IMPLEMENTATION IN VERY LARGE SCALE INTEGRAT ...

  7. INTEGRATED CIRCUIT DEVICE PACKAGING PROTECTION AGAINST HIGH POWER MICROWAVE DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS

    SBC: Electro Magnetic            Topic: N/A

    HIGH POWER MICROWAVE (HPM) DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS POSE A THREAT TO SYSTEMS WHICH EMPLOY ADVANCED INTEGRATED CIRCUITS (VLSI/VHSIC). THESE CIRCUITS, WHICH USE SMALL GEOMETRY DEVICES, ARE SUSCEPTIBLE TO UPSET AND DAMAGE DUE TO THE LARGE CURRENTS AND VOLTAGES WHICH COUPLE TO THE PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARDS FROM HPM SOURCES. ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE PROTECTION IS INADEQUATE FOR THE REPETITIVE PULSE NATURE O ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF A HUYGENS' SURFACE EMP SIMULATOR (HSES)

    SBC: Electro Magnetic            Topic: N/A

    AN INNOVATIVE CONCEPT FOR A NEW CLASS OF EMP SIMULATORS IS PROPOSED. THE ELECTROMAGNETIC EQUIVALENCE PRINCIPLE IS APPLIED TO PROVIDE A THREAT LEVEL SIMULATION WITH A BANDWIDTH GOAL OF 1 GHZ AND ARBITRARY ANGLES OF INCIDENCE AND POLARIZATION ARE PROVIDED BY SOFTWARE. IT IS ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND AND IS HIGHLY AUTOMATED. IT IS EXPECTED TO BE LESS EXPENSIVE TO PROCURE AND MAINTAIN THAN CONVENTIONAL ME ...

  9. LOW COST COLLAPSIBLE MULTI-SHAPE MANDREL

    SBC: Engineering Innovations            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL CONSISTS OF USING A LOW COST FORMABLE MANDREL MATERIAL WHICH IS CAPABLE OF EASY REMOVAL THROUGH SMALL OPENINGS. THESE MANDRELS CAN BE PURCHASED IN DIFFERENT ALLOY FORMS TAILORED TO WITHSTAND THE REQUIRED CURE TEMPERATURES AND PRESSURES ASSOCIATED WITH GRAPHITE/EPOXY AND GRAPHITE/THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITE FABRICATION. THIS PROPRIETARY MATERIAL (STANDARD COMMERCIAL ITEM) HAS A COEFFICIEN ...

  10. HIGH SPEED PERSONNEL PARACHUTE ENERGY ABSORBER

    SBC: Frost Engineering Development            Topic: N/A

    A SHORT-STROKE ENERGY ABSORBER CAN BE USED TO REDUCE PARACHUTE SNATCH FORCE AND THE ONSET RATE OF THE OPENING SHOCK. SUCH A DEVICE MUST OPERATE WITH THE DESIRED OPENING SHOCK FORCES AND BE NONELASTIC, LIGHT, SMALL, IN PARALLEL WITH THE RISERS, AND NOT RESULT IN ASYMMETRIC SUSPENSION AFTER PARACHUTE OPENING. ASSESSMENT OF THE DYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ENERGY ABSORBER WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY ME ...
