  1. Processing of Selectively-Discontinuous-Fiber (SDF) Composite Materials

    SBC: Advanced Composite Operations            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is directed at creating discontinuous unidirectional composite from continuous unidirectional prepreg. The process, Selectively-Discontinuous-Fiber (SDF), introduces micro-cuts in preimpregnated unidirectional materials at specified locations. This process will allow unidirectional composite prepreg to be used for the fabrication of complex-compound components that have be ...

  2. Augmenting Fire Fighter Training With Virtual Reality Technology

    SBC: 5, Inc. (full Immersion            Topic: N/A

    Current fire fighting training methods are possibly lacking maximum effectiveness due to increasing safety and environmental regulation. Additionally, performance measurement in large classes becomes difficult unless trainees have identical training scenarios and evaluations. This proposal details the analysis of current training methods and subsequent emulation of them using virtual reality (VR ...

  3. COMBINED SUPERCRITICAL AIR SYSTEM FOR BREATHING AND BODY COOLING

    SBC: Aerospace Design & Development, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF SUPERCRITICAL CRYOGENIC STORAGE OF AIR WILL PERMIT THE SUPPLY OF BREATHING AIR FOR PERSONNEL ENGAGED IN EMERGENCY OR HAZARDOUS MATERIALS ACTIVITIES. BECAUSE AIR STORAGE IS AT CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURE (LESS THAN 180 DEGREES C) THERE IS CONSIDERABLE COOLING AVAILABLE FOR THE USER AS THE AIR IS USED. THIS COMBINATION OF THE BREATING AIR SUPPLY AND PERSONNEL COOLING IS UNIQUE IN THIS DEVELOPME ...

  4. Acoustic Monitor for Buried Structure Detection

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to apply a non-intrusive embedded acoustic sensor concept, which has been used successfully in reentry vehicle aerodynamics applications for detecting exterior flow conditions to penetrator munitions for detecting various media and buried structures during penetration. This effort includes: review of existing data and literature to choose promising signal characteristics for media and ...

  5. GPS-BASED AUTONOMOUS SPACE NAVIGATION

    SBC: Arrowsmith Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL AND GOVERNMENT SPACE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS DEPEND ON GROUND SUPPORT FOR NAVIGATION. THE GROUND SOLUTION CAN BE COSTLY AND MAY PROVIDE LESS ACCURACY THAN NEEDED. A GPS-BASED REAL-TIME AUTONOMOUS SPACECRAFT NAVIGATION SYSTEM IS PROPOSED. AN ALGORITHM WILL BE DEVELOPED WHICH COMBINES GPS-DERIVED POINT POSITION ESTIMATES WITH A PROPAGATED A PRIORI POSITION ESTIMATE. THE POINT POSITIONS ARE ...

  6. Evaluation of Analog Interface for Dosimetry Temperature Probes

    SBC: Automated Instruments            Topic: N/A

    Measuring temperature in specimens being heated by electromagnetic energy requires the use of special probes. The temperature probes must be specially designed to minimize electromagnetic field perturbations. Several types of non-perturbing temperature measurement probes have been investigated and developed. Many employ optical fibers rather than electrical conductors to avoid the e ...

  7. Development and Demonstration of SSTSim, A Simulation Environment for Space System On-Orbit Simulation

    SBC: BCSi, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    With the appropriate analytical resources, the Space & Missile Technology Directorate will be able to "look into the future" of the development of space system technologies, development which spans definition, acquisition, and operations phases. For example, developers will be able to clearly quantify system requirements before system acquisition begins, use component test data to predict overall ...

  8. A Mathematical Model for Centrifuge Simulations

    SBC: Biodynamic Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The Dynamic Environment Simulator (DES) at Armstrong Laboratory will be a useful tool for crew member training and human factors research for future high performance aircraft. To make the best use of the DES, this proposal presents a plan for creating a software tool that simulates the operation of the centrifuge. The software would enable scientists to specify a time history of desired crew mem ...

  9. Feasibility Study of a Personal-Computer Based Head-Spine Model

    SBC: Biodynamic Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The Head-Spine Model (HSM) is a three-dimensional, discrete element mathematical model and software program that describes the kinematics and loads of the head-neck spine structure due to high impact accelerations. The proposed Phase I development program represents an effort to rehost the FORTRAN software from a Unix workstation environment to an IBM PC-Compatible MS-DOS environment, to study th ...

  10. Optical Scanner with High Speed and High Resolution

    SBC: Bosonics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The optical beam scanners developed under this program will have linear resolution of up to 1000 angles with access times as low as 10 nanoseconds. Besides contributing to existing systems in optical memory access, optical signal processing, and optical switching, the unprecedented speed at such high resolutions will open up further applications previously unaccessible like real-time ...
