  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 ...

  2. Low Cost, Efficient Microchannel Plasma Ozone System for Point of Use Water Treatment

    SBC: EP Purification, Inc.            Topic: A

    A team at EP Purification has performed research for the development and commercialization of low-cost microchannel plasma reactor modules capable of efficiently producing ozone for water treatment and other environmental applications in a slim form factor and size. The conservation of water resources for human consumption is a growing national priority. Ozone is a unique purification agent as it ...

  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. Xpatch Traceback Modification for Improved Signature Estimation and Model Validation

    SBC: DEMACO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The use of synthetic data for the generation of target signature templates is a vital element of current and future automatic target recognition systems. [1] [2] Although current synthetic signatures closely match their measured counterparts, they suffer from two shortcomings: 1) susceptibility to model error and 2) poor representation of signature variance. The current model validation relie ...

  5. Development of High Quality and Large (3 & 4 Inch Diameter) Cd[sub 1-x]Zn[sub x]Te/Si Substrates Lattice-Matched to Hg[sub 1-x]Cd[sub x]Te

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    The fabrication of large format, long wavelength (LWIR) mercury cadmium telluride based focal plane arrays (FPAs) is highly desirable for Air Force applications such as satellite power and array cooling reduction along with higher resolution. However, the development of large FPAs has been seriously impeded by the limited size of commercially available bulk Cd{sub 1-x}Zn{sub x}Te substrates. In ...

  6. Multifunction Phased Arrays- New Low Cost Scanner for Radar or Communications

    SBC: Epsilon Lambda Electronics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Large planar arrays which consist of several hundred to several thousand antennas provide narrow, high gain pencil beams. Electronic beam steering for terminal guidance radar can be achiev ed using frequency scanning, beam switching, time delay or phase delay. Electronics steering allows beam manipulations in tens of nanoseconds using compact, mechanically rigid structures. Due to the increase in ...

  7. Angularly Multiplexed Spectral Imager

    SBC: FLIR SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Techical advances in two dimensional staring focal plan arrays (FPSs) have stimulated research to utilize FPSs in spectrometer instrumentation with the goal of increased spectral, spatial and temporal resolution. Conventional staring FPA spectrometers create a three dimensional image (two spatial and one spectral) by either using a sequence of narrow band spectral filters to slice the ...

  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. 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 ...

  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 ...
