  1. MICROWAVE DIELECTRIC ANALYSIS OF CURING RESIN SYSTEMS

    SBC: Kdc/isi Joint Venture            Topic: N/A

    THE MANUFACTURE OF POLYMER MATRIX COMPOSITES AND PLASTICS INVOLVES COMPLEX CHEMICAL AND PHYSICAL CHANGES THAT MUST BE MONITORED AND CONTROLLED TO YIELD DESIRED PRODUCTS. AT MICROWAVE FREQUENCIES, BOTH THE DIELECTRIC (E') AND ABSORPTIVE (E") PROPERTIES ARE EXCELLENT DIAGNOSTIC INDICATORS OF THE CURE STATE. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING MICROWAVE OPEN-ENDE ...

  2. UPDATING OF MODEL-PREDICTED DIRECTIONAL WAVE SPECTRA USING REAL-TIME MEASUREMENTS AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

    SBC: Ocean Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO UPDATING THEORECTICAL MODEL-PREDICTED DIRECTIONAL WAVE SPECTRA USING REAL-TIME AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE CONCEPTS IS PROPOSED. CURRENT NUMERICAL WAVE FORECAST MODEL DO NOT UTILIZE REAL-TIME MEASUREMENTS FROM SHIP REPORTS, WAVE BUOYS AND SATELLITE REMOTE SENSING DATA AS INPUTS TO UPDATE ITS FORECAST. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL DEVELOP A COHERENT METHODOLOGY TO RECREATE D ...

  3. NDE FOR COMPOSITE STRUCTURES

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    THE TREND CONTINUES TOWARDS APPLYING ADVANCED COMPOSITE MATERIALS TO THE HIGH PERFORMANCE STRUCTURES ASSOCIATED WITH AEROSPACE. STRUCTURES FABRICATED FROM CARBON-CARBON AND FILAMENT WOUND COMPOSITES ARE PARTICULAR EXAMPLES. TO FULLY EXPLOIT THE PROMISE OF THESE ADVANCED STRUCTURES, NOVEL NDE TECHNIQUES ARE NEEDED FOR CHARACTERIZATION. DUAL-ENERGY LAMINOGRAPHY SPECIFICALLY ADDRESSES THE CHEMICAL, D ...

  4. PE-CVD DIAMOND THIN FILM FOR RECYCLABLE UV SWITCH

    SBC: Crystallume/edi            Topic: N/A

    THE RESEARCH ADDRESSED IN THIS PROPOSAL INVOLVES AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE USE OF DIAMOND THIN FILMS AS SOLID STATE OPTICAL SWITCHES WHERE THE FILMS ARE PRODUCED BY AN INHERENTLY LOW-COST TECHNIQUE EMPLOYING PLASMA-ENHANCED CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (PE-CVD) OF CARBON-CONTAINING GASES (E.G., METHANE). THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSED RESEARCH EFFORT IS TO EVALUATE EXPERIMENTALLY THE OPTOELECTRIC PRO ...

  5. PE-CVD DIAMOND THIN FILM FOR RESEARCH INSTRUMENTATION

    SBC: Crystallume/edi            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSED RESEARCH EFFORT IS TO EXPERIMENTALLY EVALUATE THE OPTOELECTRONIC PROPERTIES OF CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION DIAMOND THIN FILMS WITH RESPECT TO ELECTROLUMINESCENCE AND PHOTOCONDUCTION IN THE UV AND BLUE-GREEN SPECTRAL REGIONS. AS A RESULT OF SUCH EFFORTS WE WILL DETERMINE THE EXTENT TO WHICH DIAMOND THIN FILMS MAY BE USED AS LASING MEDIA OR PHOTOCONDUCTORS AND ASCERTAIN ...

  6. NEW HIGH ENERGY AND POWER STORAGE DEVICES FOR FUZES

    SBC: Electrochimica Corp.            Topic: N/A

    STORAGE OF ELECTRICAL ENERGY AT A SUFFICIENTLY HIGH DENSITY, IN A SMALL ENOUGH VOLUME AND WITH HIGH ENOUGH EFFICIENCY OF EXTRACTION IS INCRESINGLY BECOMING A SIGNIFICANT PROBLEM. CONVENTIONAL CAPACITIVE DEVICES (E.G., ELECTROLYTIC CAPACITORS) FALL SHORT OF PROVIDING THE VOLUMETRIC EFFICIENCY REQUIRED TO SUPPORT NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR COMPLEX FUZE REQUIREMENTS. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP AN ENERGY STORAGE ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF A KNOWLEDGE-BASED INTELLIGENT TUTORING SYSTEM

    SBC: Expert-ease Systems            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INTELLIGENT TUTORING SYSTEM (ITS) TO TRAIN AIR FORCE PERSONNEL. EXPERT-EASE SYSTEMS (EES) HAS DEVELOPED AND DEMONSTRATED A SUCCESSFUL COMPUTER-BASED INSTRUCTION TECHNIQUE CALLED OPTIMALLY ADAPTIVE LEARNING (OAL). OAL COMBINES SEVERAL TECHNOLOGIES: OPTIMIZATION THEORY, EDUCATIONAL MODELING, AND HUMAN PSYCHOLOGY. THE OAL APPROACH UTILIZED ADVANCED OPTIMI ...

  8. INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES/METHODOLOGIES TO REDUCE SPACE SYSTEM COSTS

    SBC: Independent Risk Assessment In            Topic: N/A

    THE EXPERIENCE OF THE PAST THIRTY YEARS IN THE SPACE BUSINESS HAS YET TO BE FULLY EXPLOITED FOR ITS POTENTIAL IN REDUCING SPACE SYSTEMS COSTS. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL PROVIDE A METHODOLOGY WHICH WILL PLACE THE PAST EXPERIENCE OF COST REDUCTION INITIATIVES AT THE FINGERTIPS OF THE AIR FORCE MANAGERS. THE METHODOLOGY IS PLANNED TO TAKE THE FORM OF A TWO PART DECISION SUPPORT MODEL CODED FOR A PERSO ...

  9. AUTONOMOUS CONTROL SYSTEM FOR LOW-THRUST ORBITAL TRANSFER VEHICLE (OTV) FOR GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM (GPS)

    SBC: Irvine Technology Gp Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL DEVELOP INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES FOR LOW-COST CONTROL OF THE ATTITUDE AND ENGINE FIRING OF THE ELECTRIC ORBITAL TRANSFER VEHICLE (EOTV) DURING ITS SPIRAL ORBIT TRANSFER MISSION. THE EOTV PROMISES THE ABILITY TO DELIVER GPS REPLENISHMENT SATELLITES TO THEIR OPERATIONAL ORBITS AT SIGNIFICANT COST SAVINGS OVER CONVENTIONAL CHEMICAL UPPER STAGES. THE PROPOSED APPROACH WILL USE T ...
