  1. MOCVD OF CONTINUOUSLY REINFORCED CARBIDES

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    HYPERSONIC AND SUPERSONIC SPEEDS ARE FEASIBLE DUE TO ADVANCES IN AEROSPACE ENGINEERING, VEHICLE DESIGN, AND PROPULSION TECHNOLOGY. THE EFFICIENCIES, RELIABILITY, AND ULTIMATE POTENTIAL OF AIR BREATHING PROPULSION SYSTEMS HINGE UPON NEW MATERIALS THAT CAN SURVIVE THE HARSH COMBUSTION ENVIRONMENTS. HAFNIUM AND ZIRCONIUM CARBIDE AND BORIDE MATRICES ARE CANDIDATE MATERIALS SYSTEMS, BUT ONLY IF MANUFAC ...

  2. DEVELOPMENT OF A LOW LOSS PLANAR HTSC MILLIMETER WAVE MIXER

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    MANY INFRARED AND ELECTRO-OPTICAL IMAGING SYSTEMS ARE CONFOUNDED BY FOG AND DUST. MILLIMETER EAVE IMAGING SYSTEMS WOULD NOT BE AFFECTED BY THESE BATTLEFIELD OBSCURANTS. HOWEVER, THE LIQUID HELIUM COOLING REQUIREMENT OF TODAYS HIGH PERFORMANCE LOW NOISE MIXERS IS BLOCKING THE DEPLOYMENT OF ADVANCED MILLIMETER WAVE COMMUNICATIONS AND IMAGING SYSTEMS. IN PRINCIPAL, JOSEPHSON MIXERS FABRICATED WITH TH ...

  3. HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY COMPOSITES FOR THERMAL ENERGY MANAGEMENT

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ECONOMICS OF LAUNCH COST, COUPLED WITH POWER REQUIREMENTS FOR SPACE BASED WEAPONS SYSTEMS, MANDATE OPTIMIZATION OF THE RATIO OF POWER TO MASS IN SPACE POWER SYSTEMS. A LOW DENSITY, HIGH TEMPERATURE, RADIATION-COMPATIBLE MATERIAL WITH HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY USED FOR CONSTRUCTION OF THERMAL MANAGEMENT DEVICES WOULD OFFER A SUBSTANTIAL ENHANCEMENT TO THE POWER/MASS RATIO, AND TO THE COST OF DE ...

  4. SIC REINFORCED THERMAL BARRIER COATING

    SBC: APS Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT STATE OF THE ART THERMAL BARRIER COATINGS DEPOSITED BY ARC-PLASMA SPRAYING FAIL JUST ABOVE THE CERAMIC/BONDCOAT INTERFACE DUE TO ACCUMULATED STRESSES WHICH RISE DURING THERMAL CYCLING. THE PROPOSED PROJECT EXPLORES THE INCLUSION OF STRENGTHENING SIC WHISKERS OR PLATELETS TO COMBAT THESE STRESSES. WHEREAS PREVIOUS ATTEMPTS HAVE CAUSED DISASSOCIATION OF THE SIC, WE PROPOSE A STAGGERED INJECT ...

  5. QUANTITATIVE LUBRICATING OIL DEBRIS MONITORING AND ANALYSIS

    SBC: Asoma Instruments            Topic: N/A

    ASOMA INSTRUMENTS, INC. IS PROPOSING TO DEVELOP A LOW COST, PORTABLE, ENERGY DISPERSIVE, RADIOISOTOPE ACTIVATED X-RAY FLUORESCENCE ANALYZER,WHICH CAN BE USED AT OR NEAR THE SAMPLING POINT FOR LUBRICATING OILS. IF SUCCESSFULLY DEVELOPED, THIS INSTRUMENT COULD BE OPERATED BY NON-TECHNICAL PERSONNEL, TO PROVIDE ANALYSES WITHIN ONE TO FIVE MINUTES FOR ACCUMULATIONS IN LUBRICATING OILS OF WEAR METAL DE ...

  6. CHARACTERIZATION OF OWNSHIP DOPPLER AND TRANSMISSION CHANNEL PARAMETERS BY MEANS OF CLUTTER MEASUREMENTS

    SBC: Breed & Harvel Assocs            Topic: N/A

    IT HAS BEEN FOUND, FROM EXPERIENCE GAINED ON THE CRITICAL SEA TEST (CST) AND THE LOW FREQUENCY ACOUSTICS (LFA) PROGRAMS, THAT THE ACOUSTIC ENVIRONMENT FOR LONG RANGE ACTIVE SYSTEMS IS UNIQUE. A PRINCIPAL CONCERN IS CLUTTER DISCRIMINATION, AND MANAGEMENT, AND ONE OF THE PRINCIPAL CLUTTER DISCRIMINANTS IS DOPPLER. IF ONE CAN ELIMINATE OWNSHIP'S MOTION, CLUTTER CAN BE CHARACTERIZED AS HAVING ZERO VEL ...

  7. DATA COMPRESSION FOR ACOUSTIC SURVEILLANCE DATA

    SBC: Breed & Harvel Assocs            Topic: N/A

    THE TREND IN ACOUSTIC SURVEILLANCE DEVELOPMENT IN THE LAST DECADE HAS BEEN FOR A GREATER NUMBER OF ACOUSTIC ARRAYS, EACH WITH A GREATER NUMBER OF SENSORS, AND AS A CONSEQUENCE A GREATER NUMBER OF BEAMS TO BE PROCESSED, TRANSMITTED, AND STORED. IN THE FUTURE THE QUANTITY WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE. AT THE SAME TIME THERE IS A REQUIREMENT TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF THE DATA WHICH IS STORED AND TRANSMI ...

  8. EXPERT SYSTEM FOR CIRCUIT BOARD ASSEMBLY

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

    THE PROPOSED EXPERT SYSTEM FOR CIRCUIT BOARD ASSEMBLY IS AN ENGINEERING SOFTWARE TOOL WHOSE GOAL IS TO HELP AN ORGANIZATION TO OPTIMIZE THE PLACEMENT AND INSERTION SEQUENCE OF ELECTRONIC PART COMPONENTS FOR A CIRCUIT CARD ASSEMBLY USING KITTED PARTS. IT ASSUMES THAT THE ASSEMBLY PROCESS IS NOT A SERIAL DECISION METHOD, RATHER, IT IS A PROCESS WITH PARALLEL INTERACTION FROM ORIGINATION OF A CONCEPT ...

  9. HIGH PRESSURE FLOAT ZONE GROWTH OF TIC

    SBC: Crystica Inc            Topic: N/A

    TITANIUM CARBIDE (TIC) IS THE IDEAL SUBSTRATE FOR SINGLE CRYSTAL EPITAXIAL GROWTH OF B-SILICON CARBIDE. THE TITANIUM CARBIDE CRYSTALS NOW AVAILABLE ARE LACKING IN BOTH SIZE AND QUALITY FOR THIS APPLICATION. IT IS BELIEVED THAT BY IMPROVING UPON THE HIGH PRESSURE FLOAT ZONE CRYSTAL GROWTH METHOD NOW USED FOR TIC CRYSTAL GROWTH, BOTH THE QUALITY AND SIZE REQUIREMENTS CAN BE MET. THE PRIMARY EFFORT I ...

  10. LIGHT WEIGHT TURBINE BLADE ATTACHMENT

    SBC: Cvd            Topic: N/A

    PROBLEMS - INCREASE THRUST-TO-WEIGHT REQUIREMENT IS ONE OF THE MAIN CONCERNS OF THE DOD (DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE) AND THE AIRCRAFT INDUSTRY. THE THRUST-TO-WEIGHT RATIO COULD BE IMPROVED BY REDUCING THE WEIGHT OF THE ENGINE. ONE AREA IN THE ENGINE COULD BE REDUCED IS IN THE TURBINE BLADE/DISK ATTACHMENT. THE CURRENT DESIGN USED THE HIGH STRESS DOVETAIL OR FIR TREE ATTACHMENT. OBJECTIVES - THE OBJECTI ...
