  1. Grid System Matrix for EMP Transient Protection


    NEMP (Nuclear Electro-Magnetic Pulse), lightning strikes, high powered EMI (Electro-Magnetic Induction), or ESD (Electro-Static Discharge) can impress high transient voltages on wires connecting to electronic modules. These transients are potentially destructive to aircraft electronic components and can result in system failures. To eliminate or substantially reduce the effects of transients on ...

  2. Improved Human Motion Capture Apparatus

    SBC: Choreometrics Llp            Topic: N/A

    Human motion capture devices are in demand in a number of fields. Currently available systems are greatly limited in flexibility and quality. Furthermore, since they depend upon adorning the subject with suits of sensors or targets, the present art is totally unsuited to surveillance or reconnaissance. Without sensors or targets to place on the subject , detection, tracking, and measurement may ...

  3. Radar Signature Modeling for Missile and Target Encounter

    SBC: DEMACO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Radar-guided weapons can be confounded by a number of factors, including clutter, jamming, target glint, and engine modulation. Missile/target encounter simulations, if they are to test a homing systems weak points, must incorporate these effects. We propose to investigate the electromagnetic (EM) modeling requirements for a complete radar-guided weapon system simulator. Specifically, in the Pha ...

  5. Real-time Scattering Center Predictions for Far andNear-Field Modeling and Simulation Systems

    SBC: DEMACO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DoD's real-time mission planning, electronic warfare and other modeling and simulation systems generally utilize manual entry of RCS values for the generation for radar simulator displays and system performance analysis. Given the large amounts of measured data available at NAWC/WD,Pt. Mugu, as well as from other DoD and industry test facilties, it would be effective to automate the full utiliz ...

  6. Xpatch Traceback Modification for Improved Signature Estimation and Model Validation

    SBC: DEMACO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The use of synthetic data for the generation of target signature templates is a vital element of current and future automatic target recognition systems. [1] [2] Although current synthetic signatures closely match their measured counterparts, they suffer from two shortcomings: 1) susceptibility to model error and 2) poor representation of signature variance. The current model validation relie ...

  7. Three-Dimensional Photonic Crystals for Laser Applications

    SBC: Dt Optics            Topic: N/A

    DT Optics proposes to develop and produce large three-dimensional photonic crystals for a new class of lasers. Lasers already have had extensive and important commercial and military applications. The key to produce more powerful and more efficient lasers lies in production of more efficient optical cavity with optical amplifying medium embedded. The hope is in photonic crystals. This proj ...

  8. High Torque Density Electric Traction Motor


    A 300 Kw permanent magnet brushless dc motor with axial gap configuration to fit within 23 inch diameter by 10 inch long package is proposed for tracked vehicle applications. The stator constructed using novel concepts results in under 24, 4.4 gallons/min. oil flow to keep the maximum winding temperature under 200 deg C. The motor voltage is limited to 500 Vdc, and the efficiency including ...

  9. Development of High Quality and Large (3 & 4 Inch Diameter) Cd[sub 1-x]Zn[sub x]Te Substrates Lattice Ma

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    The fabrication of large format, long wavelength (LWIR) mercury cadmium telluride based focal plane arrays (FPAs) is highly desirable for Air Force applications such as satellite power and array cooling reduction along with higher resolution. However, the development of large FPAs has been seriously impeded by the limited size of commercially available bulk Cd{sub 1-x}Zn{sub x}Te substrates. In ...

  10. Multifunction Phased Arrays- New Low Cost Scanner for Radar or Communications

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

    Large planar arrays which consist of several hundred to several thousand antennas provide narrow, high gain pencil beams. Electronic beam steering for terminal guidance radar can be achiev ed using frequency scanning, beam switching, time delay or phase delay. Electronics steering allows beam manipulations in tens of nanoseconds using compact, mechanically rigid structures. Due to the increase in ...
