  1. Novel Oriented Bacteriorhodopsin Films for Optical Applications

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force seeks new biological materials for aerospace and commercial applications. Such biological materials should have characteristics that lead to multiple applications or multifunctionality. We propose to use the membrane protein bacteriorhodopsin (BR) in a highly ordered structural form to meet the above needs. Bacteriorhodopsin has unique optical functionality that is impossible to achi ...

  2. Laser-Activated X-Ray Source

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a method of generating x-rays that will combine high instantaneous output of rotating-anode x-ray tubes with continuous cooling rates as great or greater than fixed-anode tubes. This combination can be achieved in a mechanically simple way, and will reduce spot wobble without vacuum seals, vacuum bearings, deflecting field, or conventional cathodes, by either thermionic or photoemission ...

  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. 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 ...

  5. Radome for W-band Radiometer

    SBC: LINDSEY ASSOC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective is to develop a design for a broadband (5 percent or greater) millimeter wavelength high fineness ratio radome. The transmission efficiency is expected to be greater than 60 percent across the frequency band, antenna scan angles and flight (temperature) profile. Antenna pattern shift and distortion will be minimized and resistance to ground handling, rain erosion, flight loads and th ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Bioremediation Augmentation by Catalytic Oxidation

    SBC: World Envirotech Svcs & Tech,            Topic: N/A

    Groundwater remediation at military and civilian sites is a growing need throughout the U.S. For contaminant streams containing JP4 constituents and chlorinated organics, for example, in-situ bioremediation can sometimes require augmentation, such as that which would be provided by a catalytic decomposition process step. We have developed several candidate catalysts for organics breakdown in soil ...

  9. High Operating Temperature, Broadband Visible/Infrared HgCdTe Photodetectors

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF121067

    ABSTRACT:We propose the development of broadband high operating temperature two-color focal plane arrays (FPAs) that will allow simultaneous detection of radiation in the visible and infrared bands from the same target points. The first band will cover the 400 nm to 4 micron wavelength range and will be based on double layer planar heterostructures technology. The backside illuminated array will h ...

  10. Mobile Motion Capture for Human Skeletal Modeling in Natural Environments

    SBC: APDM, INC.            Topic: AF141029

    ABSTRACT:Analysis of human movement with motion capture systems is used in many applications in the domains of health care, military training and simulation, sports, and entertainment. The requirements of these applications have driven the development of new motion capture technologies to improve accuracy, automation, portability, and cost. There is no single motion capture technology that is well ...
