  1. MULTI-GIGAHERTZ BANDWIDTH HIGH PINOUT DENSITY WAFER PROBE

    SBC: Cascade Microtech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A MEMBRANE TYPE WAFER PROBE IS PROPOSED WHICH, AT THE END OF PHASE II, WILL ACHIEVE TRANSMISSION OF SIGNALS FROM TESTER TO DIE WITH LOW ABBRATIONS FOR A 100 PS RISETIME. CAPABILITIES WILL INCLUDE LOW-IMPEDANCE GROUND AND POWER CONTACTS, WITH LSI-LEVEL NUMBERS AND DENSITIES OF SIGNAL LINES. PHASE I WORK WILL DETERMINE THE DESIGN PARAMETERS NECESSARY FOR THESE GOALS THROUGH A SEQUENCE OF CALCULATION ...

  2. PERMANENT MAGNET ELECTROMAGNETIC LAUNCHER

    SBC: Electroimpact, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ELECTROIMPACT PROPOSES THAT ELECTROMAGNETIC LAUNCH BE EMPLOYED WITH A PERMANENT MAGNET PUSHER MOTOR AND A TRAVELING WAVE LAUNCH TUBE. NEODYMIUM-IRON-BORON PERMANENT MAGNETS ELIMINATE THE REQUIREMENT FOR HIGH POWER ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS TO THE MOVING LAUNCHING DEVICE. MAGNETIC SUSPENSION TECHNOLOGY USING PERMANENT MAGNETS WILL PREVENT THEDEVICE FROM RATTLING DOWN THE LAUNCH TUBE. A PERMANENT MAGNE ...

  3. ULTRASONIC DATA INTERCHANGE STANDARD (UDIS)

    SBC: Failure Analysis Associates            Topic: N/A

    MOST OF THE ULTRASONIC SCANNING SYSTEMS IN SERVICE OR BEING INSTALLED AT DOD FACILITIES OFFER SOME MEANS OF RECORDING INSPECTION DATA. HOWEVER, THE ADVANTAGES OF THIS CAPABILITY AREN'T BEING FULLY REALIZED BECAUSE THE STORAGE MEDIA AND DATA ARCHIVAL FORMATS DIFFER FROM SYSTEM TO SYSTEM. THIS LACK OF STANDARDIZATION IS CAUSING A PROBLEM THAT IS BECOMING WIDESPREAD AS MORE AND MORE DOD FACILITIES IN ...

  4. INNOVATIVE SCRAMJET FLAMEHOLDERS FOR ENHANCED MIXING

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    AN EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF INNOVATIVE FLAMEHOLDER DESIGNS TO ENHANCE MIXING IN A SUPERSONIC COMBUSTION RAMJET (SCRAMJET) ENGINE IS PROPOSED. IN A SCRAMJET ENGINE OPERATING AT HYPERSONIC FLIGHT SPEEDS,THE SHORTER RESIDENCE TIME AND DECREASED MIXING RATE CAUSE DETERIORATION IN THE COMBUSTION EFFICIENCY AS COMPARED WITH LOWER SPEEDS. TWO CONFIGURATIONS RECENTLY DEVELOPED TO PROMOTE RAPID MIXING ...

  5. A PRESSURE AND TEMPERATURE TRANSDUCER FOR 700-MPA EXPLOSIVE ENVIRONMENTS- DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A HIGH-ACCURACY, HIGHRANGE PRESSURE AND TEMPERATURE TRANSDUCER FOR THE MEASUREMENT OF RAPID TRANSIENTS TO 700 MPA AND TEMPERATURES TO 3000 K, AS WELL AS HEAT TRANSFER, IN GUN INTERIORS. ALL THREE MEASURING FUNCTIONS WILL BE PERFORMED BY ONE SMALL (ABOUT 20 MM IN DIAMENTER) SENSOR UNIT AND SOME EXTERNAL TEMPERATURE SENSORS. THE PRESSURE IS DETECTED BY CA ...

  6. BALLISTIC RANGE/TRACK ALIGNMENT DIAGNOSTICS

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN AUTOMATED ALIGNMENT MEASURING SYSTEM FOR THE HYPERVELOCITY RANGE/TRACK G FACILITY, LOCATED AT ARNOLD ENGINEERING DEVELOPMENT CENTER. THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT EFFORT ARE TO EVALUATE METHODS FOR DEVELOPING A SYSTEM THAT CAN RAPIDLY AND COST-EFFECTIVELY INSPECT THE TEST TRACK. THIS WILL REQUIRE AN IN-DEPTH UNDERSTANDING OF THE ENVIR ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF A SCANNING PULSED DIODE LASER DOPPLER VELOCIMETER FOR FLOW MEASUREMENTS IN COASTAL AND MARINE ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    A SCANNING, PULSED DIODE LASER DOPPLER VELOCIMETER (DLDV/SP) WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR FLOW MEASUREMENTS IN AIR AND WATER, PARTICULARY COASTAL WATERS AND THE MARINE ATMOSPHERIC BOUNDARY LAYER. THE DLDV/SP, BASED ON A FIELD-PROVEN DLDV FOR OCEAN DEPLOYMENT UNDER ICE FLOWS, WILL BE DESIGNED FOR ON-AXIS BACKSCATTER OPERATION. IN A PULSED MODE, THE DIODE LASER WILL GENERATE INSTANTANEOUS LASER POWER IN TH ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF A MATHEMATICAL CODE TO PREDICT THERMAL DEGRADATION OF FUEL AND DEPOSIT FORMATION IN A FUEL SYSTEM

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    IT HAS BEEN OBSERVED IN BOTH SMALL-SCALE EXPERIMENTS AND FULL-SCALE FUEL SYSTEM SIMULATORS THAT JET FUELS, WHEN HEATED, UNDERGO CHEMICAL REACTIONS THAT EVENTUALLY RESULT IN SEDIMENT/DEPOSIT FORMATION. THUS, THE THERMAL STABILITY OF JET FUELS HAS THE DELETERIOUS EFFECT OF CAUSING FUEL SYSTEM MALFUNCTIONS. THIS SITUATION IS ALSO POSSIBLE IN SUPERSONIC AIRCRAFT, WHERE AN INCREASE IN THE METAL SKIN TE ...

  9. ULTRA-HIGH PRESSURE WATERJET CLEANING OF SHIP COATINGS

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSED WORK WILL EVALUATE THE USE OF ULTRA-HIGH PRESSURE (20,000 TO 55,000 PSI) WATERJETS AS A METHOD OF REMOVING COATINGS FROM SHIP'S HULL SYSTEMS. ULTRA-HIGH PRESSURE (UHP) WATERJETS ARE IN DAILY COMMERCIAL USE FOR NUMEROUS CLEANING AND COATING REMOVAL TASKS. THE ADVANTAGES OF UHP WATER INCLUDE: IMPROVE PRODUCTIVITY; LOWER REACTION THRUST RESULTING IN INCREASED OPERATOR SAFETY; ABILITY TO ...

  10. ROLLER BEARING INSPECTION SYSTEM

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    PHASE I OBJECTIVES ARE TO DEVELOP THE CONCEPTUAL DESIGN OF A ROLLER BEARING MEASUREMENT SYSTEM AND TO DEMONSTRATE ITS FEASIBILITY. THEN, APPROPRIATE MEASURING TECHNIQUES FOR THE VARIOUS PARAMETERS WILL BE IDENTIFIED. CANDIDATE MEASURING TECHNIQUES WILL INCLUDE HETERODYNE INTERFEROMETERS, EDDY CURRENT SENSORS, OPTICAL TRIANGULATION SENSORS, MOIRE DEFLECTOMETRY, AND LASER MICROMETERS. THE CRITICAL T ...
