  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. A REAL-TIME BLADE ELEMENT ROTORCRAFT SIMULATION DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: ADVANCED ROTORCRAFT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE COMPUTATIONALLY INTENSE NATURE OF BLADE ELEMENT ROTORCRAFT MATH MODELS HAS LIMITED THEIR USE IN REAL-TIME SIMULATIONS TO LARGE MAINFRAME COMPUTERS OR SPECIAL PURPOSE COMPUTER SYSTEMS. BLADE ELEMENT MODELS ARE, HOWEVER, NECESSARY TO ACCURATELY REPRODUCE THE ROTORCRAFT RESPONSE DURING COMPLEX MANUEVERS, SUCH AS THOSE REQUIRED FOR COMBAT. THE RECENTLY RELEASED DEC MICROVAX II COMPUTER HAS THE CAP ...

  6. ACHIEVEMENT OF HIGH QUALITY CDZNTE SUBSTRATES USING AN IMPROVED CRYSTAL GROWTH PROCESS

    SBC: Aurora Technologies            Topic: N/A

    MONOCRYSTALLINE SUBSTRATE OF CDZNTE (4 AT% ZN), NOMINALLY LATTICE MATCHED TO HGCDTE (20 AT% CD), WILL BE PREPARED FROM CRYSTALS GROWN BY A NEW PROCESS. THE NEW CRYSTAL GROWTH SYSTEM IS FREE OF QUARTZ AND PROVIDES IMPROVED GROWTH CONDITIONS THROUGH 1) TEMPERATURE PROFILING AND PRESSURE CONTROL TECHNIQUES THAT CANNOT BE USED IN CONVENTIONAL GROWTH SYSTEMS BECAUSE OF TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURE LIMITATI ...

  8. RESEARCH IN AI FOR ON-BOARD MISSION/PAYLOAD MANAGEMENT IN MULTI PAYLOAD UNMANNED AIR VEHICLES

    SBC: Command Systems Group Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY OF AN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SYSTEM FOR UNMANNED AIR VEHICLE (UAV) MISSION PLANNING, NAVIGATION WAYPOINT SELECTION AND INTEGRATED ESM/EO PAYLOAD OPERATIONS WILL BE DEMONSTRATED VIA RAPID PROTOTYPING. THE MISSION PLANNING ALGORITHM WILL RECOGNIZE CONFLICTS AMONG MILITARY/OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS WHICH ARE COMPETING FOR AVAILABLE UAV RESOURCES; A SYSTEM OF RULES WILL BE APPLIED TO R ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
