  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. DEEP WATER CTD HANDLING SYSTEM

    SBC: Product Planning, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A LONG OVERDUE NEED FOR BETTER METHODS TO HANDLE CABLE IN A SURGING SEA. PRESENT EQUIPMENT WAS DESIGNED FOR DECK OR SHORE USE AND DOES NOT ADDRESS THE IMPACT OF WAVE FORCE. WHAT IS REQUIRED OF TODAY'S SYSTEM IS A LOW INERTIA,HIGH RESPONSE CAPSTAN TO ISOLATE THE SEA/CTD PACKAGE FROM THE SHIP. LARGE DRUM WINCHES AND TENSION DEVICES USE BRUTE RESTRAINING FORCE WITH THE CABLE ACTING AS THE HI ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. MICROSTRIP PHASED ARRAY MILLIMETER WAVE RADAR ANTENNA

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

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROJECT IS TO DESIGN AND PRODUCE A LOW COST PLANAR ARRAY OPERATING AT 94 GHZ WHICH WOULD USE A COMBINATION OF Z-CUT QUARTZ MICROSTRIP FOR THE RADIATING ELEMENTS AND LOW LOSS INSULAR GUIDE LINES FOR THE FEED NETWORK. THE INITIAL PHASE I WORK WILL CONCENTRATE ON THE ANALYSIS OF THE PROXIMITY COUPLING BETWEEN THE INSULAR GUIDE FEED LINE AND THE MICROSTRIP PATCHES. THE FIRST PHASE ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
