  2. PHOTOINTERCALATION SOLID ELECTROLYTE STORAGE CELL

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS DIRECTED TOWARDS EVALUATING THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF APPLYING SOLID POLYMER ELECTROLYTES (SPE) IN NOVEL ALL SOLID-STATE PHOTOELECTROCHEMICAL STORAGE CELLS. THE UNIQUENESS OF THIS APPROACH LIES IN THE USE OF PHOTOCATHODES WHICH WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO NOT ONLY GENERATE REDUCED REDOX SPECIES, AT THEIR INTERFACE WITH THE SOLID ELECTROLYTE, BUT ALSO WILL STORE SUCH SPECI ...

  4. IMPROVED PERFORMANCE OF ANAEROBIC DIGESTERS

    SBC: Engineering Resources, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS RESEARCH ARE THREE-FOLD: (1) TO DEV ELOP TECHNIQUES FOR RAPID START-UP OF ANAEROBIC DIGESTERS; (2) TO DEVELOP PROCEDURES FOR RAPID RECOVERY OF UPSET DIGESTERS WHICH HAVE BEEN SHOCKED BY OVERLOADING, TOXIC SUBSTANCES, OR PH DEPRESSION PROBLEMS; AND (3) TO INCREASE THE OVERALL KINETICS OF ANAEROBIC DIGESTION. REACTION KINETICS MAY BE IMPROVED BY ENHANCING THE GROWTH OF METH AN ...

  5. FEASIBILITY OF INSPECTING HIGH-Z CASTINGS USING X-RAY OR GAMMA-RAY TECHNIQUES

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

    WE PROPOSE TO EVALUATE TRANSMISSION, FLUORESCENCE, AND BACKSCATTERING TECHNIQUES OF X-RAYS OR GAMMA-RAYS TO DETERMINE DEFECTS IN HIGH-Z CASTINGS. THE PROPOSAL INCLUDES X-RAY SPECTRAL ANALYSIS, FOLLOWED BY EXPERIMENTAL MEASUREMENTS ON ACTUAL SAMPLES, TO DETERMINE OPTIMUM DESIGN PARAMETERS AND THE MINIMUM SIZE OF DEFECT THAT CAN BE DETECTED. UNDER FAVORABLE EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS, BOTH THE PARAMETERS ...

  6. INSULAR WAVEGUIDE-BASED INTEGRABLE WIDEBAND MIXER FOR MILLIMETER WAVE RADAR APPLICATIONS

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

    MILLIMETER-WAVE SYSTEMS ARE RAPIDLY EMERGING WITH NUMEROUS APPLICATIONS, INCLUDING VARIOUS RADAR SYSTEMS AND GUIDANCE FOR SELF-CONTAINED MUNITIONS. VIABILITY OF MANY MILLIMETER-WAVE SYSTEMS RELIES HEAVILY UPON ACHIEVING THE LOWER COST AND SMALL SIZE AFFORDED BY CIRCUIT INTEGRATION TECHNIQUES. DIELECTRIC-BASED WAVEGUIDES, SUCH AS INSULAR LINE, ARE HIGHLY APPROPRIATE MEDIA FOR SYSTEM INTEGRATION BY ...

  7. INSULAR GUIDE INTEGRATED PULSE TRANSCEIVER FOR MILLIMETER WAVE TERMINAL GUIDANCE

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

    THE EFFECTIVENESS OF NON-NUCLEAR MUNITIONS AND ARMAMENTS IS ENHANCED IF TERMINAL GUIDANCE IS PROVIDED. ILLUMINATION OF THE TARGET FROM A SELF-CONTAINED TRANSMITTER PROVIDES THE GREATEST MISSION FLEXIBILITY. THE USE OF MILLIMETER WAVELENGTH TERMINAL GUIDANCE TARGET SEEKERS IS NOW UNDER FAVORABLE CONSIDERATION BECAUSE OF SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE RELATIVE TO OPTICAL WAVELENGTH SYSTEMS IN ADVERSE BATTLEFI ...

  8. IR FOCAL PLANE ARRAY MULTIPLEXING- NEW APPROACH

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

    AN IMPORTANT PROBLEM IN THE AREA OF IR FOCAL PLANE ARRAY IMAGING IS THE FAST AND EFFICIENT MULTIPLEXING AND PROCESSING OF THE SIGNALS FROM THE DETECTOR ARRAY. A NEW APPROACH TO THIS PROBLEM UTILIZING THE RECENTLY DEVELOPED ACOUSTIC CHARGE TRANSPORT (ACT) DEVICE IS PRESENTED. THE ACT DEVICE COMBINES SURFACE ACOUSTIC WAVE AND CHARGE TRANSPORT TECHNOLOGIES TO ACHIEVE A LOW-NOISE, HIGH-THROUGHPUT MULT ...

  9. INSULAR WAVEGUIDE INTEGRATED MILLIMETER FRONT END FOR FM-CW TYPE RADAR SYSTEMS

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

    VARIOUS RADAR AND TARGET SEEKER SYSTEMS ARE BEING DEVELOPED TO OPERATE AT MILLIMETER SYSTEMS. LOW COST, HIGHLY RELIABLE FRONT END HARDWARE IS REQUIRED FOR THESE MUNITIONS. DIELECTRIC INSULAR WAVEGUIDE PLANAR INTEGRATED CIRCUITS FOR THIS PURPOSE WERE DESCRIBED INITIALLY BY EPSILON LAMBDA PERSONNEL IN 1970. SOME OF THESE RADARS ARE OF THE FM-CW TYPE, AND THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE NEED FOR DEMONSTR ...

  10. MATRIX ALLOY DESIGN FOR TOUGHENING DISCONTINUOUSLY REINFORCED COMPOSITES

    SBC: Materials Reliability Inc            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT ALUMINUM MATRIX COMPOSITES WHICH USE ALLOYS REQUIRING SOLUTION HEAT TREATING, QUNEHCING, AND ELEVATED TEMPERATURE AGING SUFFER FROM POOR TOUGHNESS. IT IS EXPECTED THE TOUGHNESS OF ALUMINUM MATRIX COMPOSITES CAN BE SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASED THROUGH THE USE OF 5000 SERIES ALLOYS WHICH HAVE HIGH WORK HARDENING RATES AND GOOD DUCTILITY. ANY LOSS IN COMPOSITE STRENGTH CAN BE COMPENSATED BY ADJUST ...
