  4. Radar & MMW-Tunable Plasma Frequency Selective Surfaces for Shielding Radar Systems

    SBC: ASI TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "The performance of any radar, antenna, or electronic system depends on its ability to project and defend itself against various forms of electromagnetic interference including frequencies in the S and X band. Our proposal is to design a plasma barrier andtunable frequency selective surfaces that can be turned on and off on demand to shield antennas, radar, or electronic equipment. Metallic freque ...

  5. High-Q, Tunable Microwave Superconducting Strip-Line Filters

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this SBIR program is to develop a high Q (>10,000) tunable filter by using a cryogenic piezoelectric actuator to adjust the position of a split-ring stripline resonator made from high temperature superconductor. The critical technology in thiswork is the recent development of single crystal piezoelectric materials that have much larger field induced strains and piezoelectric propertie ...

  9. Advanced Divert and Attitude Control (DACS) system for the Multiple (Miniature) Kill Vehicles (MKV)

    SBC: COMBUSTION PROPULSION & BALLISTIC TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: MDA05070

    One possible method to intercept intercontinental ballistic missiles which deploy countermeasures is to use a "shotgun" approach, in which numerous small, cheap kill vehicles are deployed simultaneously in the hopes of scoring multiple hits. In order to be effective, such vehicles must be compact, inexpensive, reliable, and responsive. Miniaturizing a propulsion system is difficult because energet ...

  10. Efficient Parallel Architecture Simulation of 3D Missile/Divert Jet Flowfields Using PowerMac G4 Clusters

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    "Solution of the Navier-Stokes equations for modeling 3D interceptor missile flowfields and divert jet interactions requires the availability of high performance, massively parallel, computing facilities since the grid resolution requirements and largeequation sets can necessitate runtimes exceeding weeks and even months, depending on the problem. Reasonable turnaround times routinely require acc ...
