  1. An Innovative Photocatalytic Process for Silver Recovery

    SBC: Wangtec Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The photographic industry consumes about 70 million troy ounces of silver annually. The technology used to recover the silver from concentrated solution is more than 40 years old. However, investigators project that, based on industry experience, as much as 20% of this silver is lost in the wash water and goes unrecovered. The toxicity of silver in the effluent is a growing concern in the United ...

  3. Real-time Scattering Center Predictions for Far andNear-Field Modeling and Simulation Systems

    SBC: DEMACO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DoD's real-time mission planning, electronic warfare and other modeling and simulation systems generally utilize manual entry of RCS values for the generation for radar simulator displays and system performance analysis. Given the large amounts of measured data available at NAWC/WD,Pt. Mugu, as well as from other DoD and industry test facilties, it would be effective to automate the full utiliz ...

  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. Three-Dimensional Photonic Crystals for Laser Applications

    SBC: Dt Optics            Topic: N/A

    DT Optics proposes to develop and produce large three-dimensional photonic crystals for a new class of lasers. Lasers already have had extensive and important commercial and military applications. The key to produce more powerful and more efficient lasers lies in production of more efficient optical cavity with optical amplifying medium embedded. The hope is in photonic crystals. This proj ...

  6. Development of High Quality and Large (3 & 4 Inch Diameter) Cd[sub 1-x]Zn[sub x]Te Substrates Lattice Ma

    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 ...

  7. 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 ...

    SBC: FOTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a family of star and tree coupler systems that are modular. Each coupler system will include three modules: a fiber/cable input module, a routing module and a fiber/cable output module. The input and output modules will secure the strength means in the input and output fiber ribbon cables and each will use an MFP to position and support the individual optical fibers. ...

    SBC: Gateway Materials Technology,            Topic: N/A

    Gateway Materials Technology and BIRL-Northwestern University propose to develop a deposition process for oxide coatings on ceramic fibers based on an aqueous chemistry route. Hetreogeneous deposition chemistry (HDC) utilizes precise control of concentration, solubility, and surface area to precipitate particles and costings directly on selected surfaces, based on knowledge of nucleation and grow ...

  10. A New Liquid Crystal Detector for Underwater Acoustic/Optical Imaging

    SBC: SANTEC SYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    A new liquid crystal based detector (acousto-optic sensor) will be developed for operation at frequencies below 500kHkz. The superior acoustic detection sensitivity of the sensor will be demonstrated and its feasibility for providing efficient and cost-effective means of acousto-optic image conversion in underwater acoustic imaging systems will be established.
