  1. SCRAP TIRE PYROLYSIS-- PRODUCTION OF HIGHLY ENHANCED MARKETABLE PRODUCTS

    SBC: Hichem Corp.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH WILL BE CONDUCTED BY HICHEM CORPORATION, TO DEVELOP A NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES. DISPOSAL OF USED TIRES IS A BIG PROBLEM IN THE WORLD, ESPECIALLY USA, SINCE MORE THAN 2.5 MILLION TIRES ARE DISCARDED EACH YEAR. MOST OF THESE TIRES ARE DISPOSED IN LANDFILLS. PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES HELPS TO RECOVER AND REUSE MOST OF THE VALUABLE CHEMICAL AVAILABLE IN TIRES. PYROLYSIS OF S ...

  3. Radio Frequency (RF) Seeker Antenna for High Speed

    SBC: ZIMMERMAN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    An electronically scanned conformal array is proposed for a new generation of air-to-air missile seeker antenna. This new type of antenna array has the potential to impact the capabilities and performance of new missiles in multiple areas. - Cost Reduction - The seeker antenna system proposed is predicted to be considerably simpler to manufacture thereby reducing the cost. - This conformal array a ...

  4. A LARGE TARGET RCS SIMULATOR WITH ANTENNA SCATTERING AND HIGH-ORDER EDGE DIFFRACTION CAPABILITY

    SBC: DEMACO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a general purpose computer code for calculating the scattering from antennas on an aircraft, which is described by a CAD file. The scattering contribution will include both the passive structure mode and active irradiation mode, calculcated by a hybrid of a high-frequency ray technique and a rigorous finite element technique. The proposed code will be made compatible with the ...

  5. Image Synthesis System for Optical Pattern Recognition/Optical Correlation

    SBC: Epic Sales, Inc. Dba Epic Systems            Topic: N/A

    To avoid li#iitations imposed by conventional spatial light modulators in two-dimensional optical pattern recognition/correlation systems, a hybrid optical-electronic system combining the throughput benefits of optical processing and accuracy of digital processing is proposed. This optical processing system is based on the Essex patented ImSyn(TM) processor which combines optical and digital integ ...

  6. NEURAL NET BASED PRIMING AND MODEL BASED ATR USING MOTION CUES

    SBC: LNK CORP., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Object-oriented methodologies such as model-based vision provide a robust and more intelligent solution to the ATR problem. Because these methodologies exploit a priori knowledge of a limited number of target models, while allowing the targets to be oriented towards the viewer in any arbitrary fashion, they result in a powerful ATR system. The central focus of this proposal is on building an autom ...

  7. Liquid Crystal Displays within Image Intensifier Systems

    SBC: Night Vision Corp            Topic: N/A

    The ability to display critical information within the optical train of a night vision device has become a requirement in the aviation community. The current display approaches rely on CRT's, optical combiners, lenses, and fiber optic cable to inject the symbology within the optical train of the night vision device. Besides decreased image tube life, bulkiness, and additional weight, the performan ...

  8. Novel Synthesis of Cubane Precursor

    SBC: Steroids Ltd.            Topic: N/A

    Cubane C8H8 is potentially an extremely valuable fuel substitute for the kerosene-based rocket propellant RP-1. The classical Eaton synthesis to yield cubane 1,4-dicarboxylic acid in five steps involves a key photochemical reaction. The steps before and after the critical 2+2 cycloaddition are standardized and readily scalable. However, this steps alone prevents scale-up. We will develop a non-pho ...

  9. CERAMIC COMPOSITE COMBUSTOR CANS FOR EXPENDABLE TURBINE ENGINES

    SBC: Ceramic Composites, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A microwave-assisted chemical vapor infiltration (CVI) process is proposed as a low cost method for fabrication of ceramic composite components for expendable turbine engines. In Phase I, optimum processing parameters for a small scale reactor d(4" diameter reaction zone and 2.6 kW microwave power source) will be defined and a small scale (3" outer diameter, 0.8" thick) C/SiC/SiC combustor cans wi ...

  10. Compact and Integrated IMU for GPS Denied Navigation Using Fast-Light Gyroscopes and Accelerometers

    SBC: Digital Optics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF112100

    ABSTRACT:For GPS denied navigation, there is a need for developing inertial measurement units (IMU), employing gyroscopes and accelerometers, with better accuracy and/or smaller volume and weight than the state of the art.Under Phase I, we have established the feasibility of realizing a superluminal ring laser gyroscope (SRLG) and a superluminal ring laser accelerometer (SRLA), based on diode-pump ...
