  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. IMPROVEMENT OF SMALL SCALE TESTING FOR EXPLOSIVE SENSITIVITY

    SBC: 3c Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVES OF PHASE I ARE TO DETERMINE HOW WELL THE SMALL SCALE TESTS CURRENTLY USED FOR SCREENING EXPLOSIVES, AND THE MODELS THAT DESCRIBE EXPLOSIVE BEHAVIOR IN THE SMALL SCALE TEST AND IN THE FULL SCALE MUNITION, CAN PREDICT THRESHOLDS OF EXPLOSIVE REACTION IN THE OPERATIONAL FULL SCALE MUNITION. FULL SCALE MUNITIONS WILL BE STUDIED TO DETERMINE THE CRITICAL MODE(S) OF EXPLOSIVE REACTION THA ...

  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. DIAGNOSTIC RULES GENERATOR

    SBC: AMERIGENICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE NEED TO APPLY EXPERT KNOWLEDGE IN THE INTERPRETATION OF MEDICAL IMAGERY AND SENSOR DATA IS WELL DOCUMENTED. RULE-BASED EXPERT SYSTEMS HAVE PROVEN THEIR VALUE IN SUCH APPLICATIONS AS MEDICAL EXPERTISE. MOST DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEMS MIMIC THE CONSULTING-ROOM ENVIRONMENT, ACQUIRING SYMPTOM DESCRIPTIONS AND LAB FINDINGS THROUGH DIALOG WITH THE USER. AUTOMATED DIAGNOSIS FROM IMAGERY AND ANALOG IS A MORE ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. REDUCING THE SENSITIVITY OF DIRECTED ENERGY WARHEADS TO UNPLANNED STIMULI

    SBC: Dyna East Corp.            Topic: N/A

    MANY EXPLOSIVE WARHEADS ARE SENSITIVE TO INITIATION BY FRAGMENT OR BULLET IMPACT AND SYMPATHETIC DETONATION. DIRECTED-ENERGY WARHEADS IN PARTICULAR ARE OFTEN LOADED WITH VERY ENERGETIC EXPLOSIVE TO OBTAIMANCE AT THE EXPENSE OF INCREASE SENSITIVITY. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS TO DETERMINE THE MOST EFFECTIVE APPROACH TO REDUCING THE SENSITIVITY OF AN EXISTING WARHEAD, SUCH AS THE SFW O ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
