  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. Deformation Measurement for Conformal Loadbearing Antenna Structure Arrays Using Fiber Optic Grating Strain Sensors

    SBC: BLUE ROAD RESEARCH            Topic: N/A

    This program develops a system that s capable of measureing to high accuracy and at high speeds two dimensional deformations of structural panels supporting antennas. The development of this system will serve to enhance imaging capabilities of radars.The system relies upon single and multi-axis fiber grating strain and temperature sensor technology that can be interrogated by high speed, high sen ...

  4. Advanced Chemical Iodine Lasers for the ABL

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    The primary objective of CU Aerospace's Phase II work will be to experimentally characterize the ElectriCOIL flow using advanced diagnostics and to demonstrate lasing of this electrically assisted chemical iodine laser. CU Aerospace (CUA) and theUniversity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) believe that it is possible to construct a highly efficient electric generation scheme to provide the pr ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. In-situ p-type doping activation near the MBE growth temperature of HgCdTe for advanced LWIR detectors

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    High-performance HgCdTe infrared focal plane arrays (IRFPAs) sensing in the long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) region and advanced structures such as multi-color detectors required for future generation IRFPAs are highly desirable for various Air Forceapplications. Such device architectures require not only reliable extrinsic n- and p-type doping of HgCdTe but also the precise control of composition ...

  7. Materials for Superlattice Infrared Detectors

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: N/A

    High performance infrared detectors with cutoff wavelength above 16 micrometers are highly needed for many applications such as early detection of long range missiles, pollution monitoring, and astronomy. Currently available detectors with high quantumefficiency and high uniformity in this wavelength range are extrinsic silicon detectors which have to be cooled below 10K. Here, we propose novel te ...

  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 ...
