  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. 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 ...

  4. ACT REALTIME PROCESSOR

    SBC: Electronic Decisions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NEW CLASS OF EXTREMELY FAST SINGLE-CHIP SIGNAL PROCESSORS BASED ON THE EMERGING TECHNOLOGY OF ACOUSTIC CHARGE TRANSPORT (ACT) HAS RECENTLY BECOME AVAILABLE THROUGH AN INTENSE DEVELOPMENT EFFORT BY DARPA AND THE U.S. AIR FORCE. ONE APPLICATION OF THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY IS THE MULTIPLEXING AND PROCESSING OF IR FOCAL PLANE SIGNALS FOR STARTING AND SCANNING ARRAYS. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM SEEKS TO DEVELOP ...

  5. COVERT COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM

    SBC: Electronic Decisions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS FOR THE DESIGN OF A COVERT COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM BASED ON ACOUSTIC CHARGE TRANSPORT (ACT) FILTER TECHNOLOGY. THIS SYSTEM IS COVERT IN THAT A NEARBY UNFRIENDLY RECEIVER WILL BE UNLIKELY TO DISCOVER THE PRESENCE OF THE TRANSMITTED SIGNAL, WHILE A MORE-DISTANT FRIENDLY RECEIVER WILL ONLY DETECTS THE SIGNAL, BUT ALSO MAINTAINS AN ADEQUATE SIGNAL-TO-NOISE RATIO. THE TECHNICAL APPROACH ...

  6. ACT MODULAR CHANNELIZER

    SBC: Electronic Decisions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A PROGRAM FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FREQUENCY CHANNELIZER AND PROCESSOR FOR ESM, ECM, COMMUNICATIONS, OR SURVEILLANCE APPLICATIONS. THIS SYSTEM IS BASED ON THE EMERGING TECHNOLOGY OF ACOUSTIC CHARGE TRANSPORT (ACT) WHICH ALLOWS THE FUNCTIONS OF FILTERING, DELAY, DETECTION, AND SWITCHING TO BE PERFORMED ON A SINGLE GALLIUM-ARSENIDE CHIP. THE PROPOSED PHASE I PROGRAM SEEKS TO ...

  7. ENHANCED CREW INTERFACE DESIGN ENHANCED NIGHT VISION GOGGLES CONFIGURATION

    SBC: Night Vision Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED NIGHT VISION GOGGLES "EAGLE EYE", DEVELOPED BY NIGHT VISION CORPORATION WEIGHT UNDER 500 GRAMS, AND ARE HELMET MOUNTED CLOSE TO THE FACE, PROVIDING MAXIMUM FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT WHILE GREATLY ATTENUATION VIBRATION. THE CENTER OF GRAVITY IS A MERE 18 MM IN FRONT OF EYES, MAKING THEM EJECTION-SAFE. "EAGLE EYE" NVG'S EMPLOY A UNIQUE FOLDED OPTICAL PATH INCORPORATING A PROPRIETARY LENS SYST ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. LOW BACK PRESSURE NOZZLE

    SBC: Risk & Industrial Safety Consu            Topic: N/A

    HIGH-PRESSURE, LARGE DIAMETER WATER NOZZLES USED FOR FIGHTING FIRES CANNOT BE OPERATED SAFELY OR EFFICIENTLY BY INDIVIDUAL FIREFIGHTERS. THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES AN INNOVATIVE NOZZLE DESIGN THAT IS EXPECTED TO LOWER THE NOZZLE REACTION FORCES BY 20-30% WITH AN ATTENDANT REDUCTION IN THROW RANGE OF LESS THAN 5%. A LABORATORY TEST PROGRAM TO VERIFY CONCEPT FEASIBILITY WILL BE FOLLOWED BY PROTOTYPE CO ...

  10. 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 ...
