  1. COMBAT VEHICLE TACTICAL DISPLAY SYSTEMS (TDS)

    SBC: Advanced Programming Concepts            Topic: N/A

    ADVANCED PROGRAMMING CONCEPTS (APC) PROPOSES TO EXPAND A PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED TACTICAL DISPLAY SYSTEM (TDS) TO ORIENT IT FOR USE BY TANK AND OTHER ARMORED VHEICLE COMMANDERS. THIS TDS WILL (FOR PHASE I) BE UPDATED VIA SMALL VHF PORTABLE RADIOS USING X.25 PROTOCOL. THE TACTICAL DISPLAY WILL CONSIST OF TERRAIN, OWN UNIT POSITION, FRIENDLY AND ENEMY UNIT POSITIONS AND MAP OVERLAYS FOR REFERENCE. FREE ...

  2. DIRECTED GAMMA RADIATION BEAM

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A FEASIBILITY STUDY IS PROPOSED ON A NOVEL CONCEPT FOR A GENERATION OF A VERY LIGHTWEIGHT, HIGHLY FOCUSED GAMMA RADIATION BEAM USEFUL FOR MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS IN DEFENSE SUCH AS KILL OF ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS IN LAND WARFARE, AND (AS DESCRIBED HEREIN) DISCRIMINATION OF TARGETS IN SPACE. THE DEVICE IS SMALL ENOUGH TO "PIGGY BACK" ON THE PROPOSED REENTRY VEHICLE (RV) INTERCEPTOR MISSILES, OR BE CARRIED ...

  3. PASSIVE AIRBLAST ATTENUATION VALVES FOR CONVENTIONAL WEAPONS

    SBC: BAKER ENGINEERING AND RISK CONSULTANTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT INVOLVES ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF SEVERAL CONFIGURATIONS FOR PASSIVE AIRBLAST VALVES TO STRONGLY ATTENUATE BLAST FROM CONVENTIONAL WEAPONS. DESIGN GOALS ARE ATTENUATION OF INCIDENT BLAST OVERPRESSURES BY AT LEAST TWO ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE, WHILE OFFERING NO MORE RESTRICTION TO NORMAL AIRFLOW THAN EXISTING ACTIVE BLAST VALVES. WE PROPOSE TO BASE OUR DESIGNS ON VENTED PANEL CONFIGURATIONS W ...

  4. ROBUST MORPHOLOGICALLY BASED SAMPLING FOR ANN

    SBC: Bbl Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROBLEM OF INTEREST IS TO IMPROVE PATTERN RECOGNITION TECHNIQUES BY DECREASING THE TRAINING TIME FOR ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORKS (ANN) AND INCREASING THE ROBUTNESS OF THE RECALL OF ANN. WE PROPOSE TO DECREASE TRAINING TIME BY INTRODUCING MORPHOLOGICALLY BASED RECONFIGURABLE SAMPLING ARRAYS. WE WILL INCREASE THE FAULT TOLERANCE OR ROBUSTNESS OF OBJECT DETECTION TASKS BY INTRODUCING A HYBIRD MODE ...

  5. IMPROVED AUTOMATED ANALYZER FOR SILT DENSITY INDEX

    SBC: Chemetek            Topic: N/A

    EXCESSIVE RATES OF RO (REVERSE OSMOSIS) FOULING MAY REQUIRE FREQUENT RO ELEMENT REPLACEMENT, WHICH IS BOTH EXPENSIVE AND TIME CONSUMING. THE OPERATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS OF PRETREATMENT PROCESSES TO REMOVE COLLOIDS AND ORGANIC MATERIALS CAN BE MONITORED USING SDI (SILT DENSITY INDEX). THE FIELD ARMY FOR OPERATION OF THEIR ROWPU (REVERSE OSMOSIS WATER PURIFICATION UNITS) WANTS A PRACTICAL MEANS OF SDI ...

  6. ADVANCED ADAPTIVE COMPUTATIONAL METHODS FOR NAVIER-STOKES SIMULATIONS IN ROTORCRAFT AERODYNAMICS

    SBC: Computational Mechan            Topic: N/A

    A NEW AND INNOVATIVE CLASS OF ADAPTIVE COMPUTATIONAL PROCEDURES IS TO BE DEVELOPED FOR THE SPECIFIC PURPOSE OF NUMERICALLY-MODELING COMPLEX FLOWS INHERENT IN ADVANCED HELICOPTER-BLADE DESIGNS. THESE PROCEDURES MAKE USE OF MATHEMATICALLY CONSISTENT ESTIMATES OF LOCAL NUMERICAL ERROR, AND AUTOMATICALLY REFINE OR UNREFINE THE MESH OR INCREASE OR DECREASE THE LOCAL SPECTRAL ORDER OF THE APPROXIMATION ...

  8. IMPROVEMENTS IN MOTOR OPERATED GATE VALVE DESIGN AND PREDICTIVE MODELS FOR RELIABILITY IMPROVEMENTS IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT SAFETY SYSTEMS

    SBC: Kalsi Engineering, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    MOTOR OPERATED GATE VALVE OPERABILITY PROBLEMS AND FAILURES AT NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS ARE A MAJOR SAFETY CONCERN AS STATEDIN NRC IE BULLETIN 85-03 AND GENERIC LETTER 89-10. THIS PROPOSAL IS AIMED AT IMPROVING GATE VALVE PERFORMANCE BY (1) DEVELOPING COMPREHENSIVE PERFORMANCE PREDICTION MODELS FOR USE OVER A RANGE OF OPERATING CONDITIONS, (2) DEFINING LIMITS, BASED ON SPECIFIC DESIGNS, BEYOND WHICH E ...

  9. IMPROVED PERFORMANCE OF HIGH ENERGY LASER EXHAUST

    SBC: Kramer & Assocs            Topic: N/A

    THE EFFICIENCY OF THE SCRUBBER ON THE HF HIGH ENERGY LASER WILL BE MEASURED UTILIZING FOURIER TRANSFORM INFRARED SPECTROSCOPY (FTIR). CONCENTRATIONS OF HF AND FLOWS WILL BE MEASURED BEFORE AND AFTER THE SCRUBBER, AND RECOMMENDATIONS MADE TO IMPROVE SCRUBBER EFFICIENCY, IF NECESSARY. AMBIENT AIR SAMPLING USING EITHER FTIR OR OTHER WET CHEMICAL METHOD WILL BE PERFORMED TO VALIDATE THE MODEL PREDICTI ...

  10. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...
