  1. FEASIBILITY OF AN INTEGRATED CONTINUOUS PROCESS USING AUTO- MATIC INSTRUMENTATION AND STATAISTICAL ANALYSES TO REDUCE COSTS AND TO INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF PEAK DETECTION AND POLLUTION CONTROL IN UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS

    SBC: Production Monitoring &            Topic: N/A

    OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS, THE EPA HAS DEVOTED MAJOR EF- FORTS TO IDENTIFY AND DOCUMENT THE MAGNITUDE OF THE RISKS OFENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION DUE TO LEAKING UDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS (UST). IN APRIL 1987, THE EPA PUBLISHED THE PROPOSED REGULATIONS FOR THE OWNERS AND OPERATORS OF UST, WHICH ARE EXPECTED TO BE FINALIZEDD IN EARLY 1988. THESE REGULATIONS INCLUDE REQUIREMENTS FOR TANK TIGHTNESS TESTS, ...

  2. INTELLIGENT KNOWLEDGE-BASED CAD FOR PRODUCIBILITY

    SBC: Cim Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    INNOVATIVE RESEARCH IS NEEDED TO ADDRESS THE PROBLEM OF DESIGNING FOR PRODUCIBILITY. KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS NOW OFFER CONSIDERABLE PROMISE IN THIS FIELD. IF THE GROUND DATA FOR THE INFERENCES OF SUCH A SYSTEM CAN BE CAPTURED DIRECTLY FROM A DESIGN DRAWING THEN ANALYSIS CAN BE CONDUCTED WITH THE AID OF AN EXPERT SYSTEM AND RESULTS MADE AVAILABLE AT A CAD WORKSTATION TO PROMPT IMMEDIATE REVISION IF ...

  3. A NOVEL TECHNIQUE FOR STUDYING WATER ASSOCIATED WITH OPTICAL FIBERS

    SBC: H & N Instruments Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE DEGRADATION IN OPTICAL AND MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF FIBERS CAUSED BY ATMOSPHERIC WATER IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM. LITTLE IS KNOWN, HOWEVER, OF THE TYPES AND QUANTITIES OF WATER ACTUALLY ASSOCIATED WITH OPTICAL FIBERS, AND THE MECHANISM FOR THE DELETERIOUS EFFECT OF THESE STATES OF WATER. THIS PROJECT WILL UTILIZE A NEW METHOD TO STUDY THE WATER ASSOCIATED WITH OPTICAL FIBERS. THE METHOD CONTINUOUSL ...

  4. ELECTROMAGNETIC BALLISTIC SHOCK SIMULATOR

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

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES AN APPROACH FOR PROVIDING HIGH ACCELERATION, HIGH FREQUENCY CONTENT, BALLISTIC SHOCK LEVEL MECHANICAL LOADING TO TEST ARTICLES. AN ELECTROMAGNETIC ACCELERATOR CONCEPT IS PROPOSED TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS. THE ACCELERATOR WILL BE POWERED FROM AN ENERGY DISCHARGE CAPACITIVE STORE. ACCELERATIONS AS HIGH AS ONE MILLION GEE WILL BE GENERATED.

  5. CERAMIC COMPONENT NONDESTRUCTIVE TESTING TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: KARTA TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    CERAMICS ARE BEING WIDELY CONSIDERED FOR REPLACEMENT OF METALS AND POLYMERS IN MANY ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS. THEIR CORROSION RESISTANCE, SMALL COEFFICIENTS OF THERMAL EXPANSION, LIGHT WEIGHT, LOW COST, EXCELLENT MECHANICAL PROPERTIES UNDER HEAVY STRESS, OUTSTANDING ELECTRICAL AND OPTICAL PROPERTIES, AND EXCEPTIONAL RESISTANCE TO HIGH TEMPERATURE, MAKE THEM VERY ATTRACTIVE IN STRUCTURAL, MICROELEC ...

  6. REDUCTION OF GEAR WEIGHT BY INERTIA WELDING TITANIUM WEBS TO STEEL GEAR RINGS

    SBC: MATERIALS ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    BECAUSE OF ITS WEIGHT REDUCTION POTENTIAL, IT WOULD BE ADVANTAGES TO USE BIMETALLIC STEEL RING/TITANIUM WEB GEARS IN POWER TRANSMISSION ASSEMBLIES. ALTHOUGH SEVERAL TECHNOLOGIES EXIST FOR JOINING TITANIUM TO STEEL, FACTORS SUCH AS COST, SIZE-FLEXIBILITY, RELIABILITY, POSTFABRICATION PROCESSING, JOINT EFFICIENCY, AND EXTREME TEMPERATURE OPERATION RAPIDLY REDUCE THE NUMBER OF REALISTIC JOINING PROCE ...

  7. LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY ILLUMINATION FOR NIGHT USE

    SBC: Polytronix Inc            Topic: N/A

    AN ALL PLASTIC LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY SYSTEM ESPECIALLY APPROPRIATE FOR NIGHT OR LOW LIGHT LEVEL ILLUMINATION USE WILL BE DEVELOPED. A KEY ELEMENT IN THE RESEARCH WILL BE THE SUBSTITUTION OF DICHRONIC LIQUID CRYSTALS FOR THE COMMONLY USED TWISTED NEMATIC (TN) LIQUID CRYSTALS. THE USE OF A DICHROIC DISPLAY PERMITS THE ELIMINATION OF THE LINEAR POLARIZERS ON BOTH THE FRONT AND REAR SURFACES OF THE C ...

  8. BALLISTIC FACE SHIELD WITH DEICING/DEFOGGING CAPABILITIES IN EXTREME CLIMATE

    SBC: Polytronix Inc            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO USE PLASMA POLYMERIZATION METHODS TO DEPOSIT HYDROPHOBIC FLUOROCARBON FILMS ON FACE SHIELDS TO PREVENT ICE AND FOG BUILD-UP. THESE WILL BE VERY LOW SURFACE ENERGY COATINGS, STRONGLY ADHERENT TO THE PLASTIC SHIELD. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL EVALUATE A NUMBER OF FLUOROCARBON FILMS IN TERMS OF ADHERENCE, TRANSPARENCY, AND SURFACE ENERGY. OVERALL, THE USE OF SUCH FILMS REPRESENT AN IDEA ...

  9. REMOTE CONTROL FOR TARGET HELICOPTERS EVALUATION

    SBC: R & D Aeronautical Engineering            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS GEARED TO PRODUCE A CONCEPTUAL REMOTE CONTROL SYSTEM OPTIMIZED FOR FULL-SCALE AND SUB-SCALE ROTARY WING SERIAL TARGETS AND ROTARY WING REMOTELY PILOTED VEHICLES (RRPV). EMPHASIS IS CENTERED UPON THE PECULIAR STABILITY REQUIREMENTS FOR REMOTE CONTROL OF HELICOPTERS, WHICH BY THEIR INHERENTLY UNSTABLE FLIGHT CHARACTERISTICS ARE NOT NECESSARILY FULLY NOR ADEQUATELY CONTROLLED BY CONVE ...

  10. COMBAT SUPPORT ROBOTICS ADVANCED CONCEPTS AND SYSTEM ANALYSIS PROGRAM

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THIS ADVANCED CONCEPTS ROBOTICS PROGRAM WILL PROVIDE THE ARMY WITH THE FOLLOWING: AN INTEGRATED ROBOTICS SYSTEM TRADE STUDY TO IDENTIFY,ANALYZE, AND PRIORITIZE ADVANCED ROBOTICS TECHNOLOGY APPLICATIONS FOR ENHANCING ARMY FORCE STRUCTURES FROM TODAY THROUGH THE YEAR 2010 (COMBAT SUPPORT SPECIFIC). AN INTERACTIVE COST/BENEFIT COMPUTER MODEL--ROBOT ASSESSMENT MODEL (RAM)--A FIRST ORDER TOOL, USED TO ...
