  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. BROADBAND HF/VHF ANTENNA SYSTEM

    SBC: ASTRON WIRELESS TECHNOLIGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    TO ACHIEVE THE PROGRAM GOALS OF ULTIMATELY FABRICATING AND DEMONSTRATING MINIATURIZED BROADBAND, HR/VHF ANTENNAS FOR USE ON AIR FORCE VEHICLES, THE TWO CRITICAL TECHNICAL ASPECTS OF THE PROBLEM, FORESHORTENING AND BROADBANDING, HAVE BEEN STUDIED, PROTOTYPE CONCEPTS DEVELOPED, AND ENGINEERIN FEASIBILITY ASSESSED IN AN EXTENSIVE PHASE I PROGRAM UNDERTAKEN BY ASTRON. REALIZATION OF THESE CONCEPTSREQU ...

  5. ABDUCTIVE AND INDUCTIVE REASONING IN MAINTENANCE DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEMS

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS FOR DEVELOPMENT OF ABDUCTIVE AND INDUCTIVE REASONING ALGORITHMS THAT WILL AID IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF FLIGHT CONTROL SYSTEM (FCS) MAINTENANCE DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEMS AND THAT WILL OVERCOME MANY OF THE LIMITATIONS OF EXISTING DIAGNOSTIC TECHNOLOGY. A FOCUS OF THE EFFORT WILL BE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A CAPABILITY TO REASON ABOUT FSC FAULTS AT A SYSTEM LEVEL WITH UNCERTAIN INFORMATION. ...

  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. SIGNAL PROCESSING ARCHITECTURE FOR A DISTRIBUTED SPARSE ARRAY (DSA) RADAR SYSTEM

    SBC: Decision-science            Topic: N/A

    A PROGRAM IS PROPOSED FOR THE ASSESSMENT OF TECHNIQUES FOR PROVIDING COHERENT OPERATION AND BEAM SYCHRONIZATION IN A DISTRIBUTED SPARSE ARRAY RADAR SYSTEM. THE RADAR SYSTEM CONSIDERED WOULD ADDRESS WIDE AREA SURVEILLANCE MISSIONS AND FUNCTIONS FROM SPACE USING TECHNOLOGY IDENTIFIED IN THE USAF FORECAST II STUDY RECENTLY COMPLETED. THE EFFORT WILL EVALUATE SEVERAL CANDIDATE TECHNIQUES INCLUDING LAS ...

  9. EXPANDING THE APPLICATIONS OF MINIATURE SATELLITE TECHNOLOGIES

    SBC: Defense Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WHILE LARGE, COMPLEX AND EXPENSIVE SATELLITE SYSTEMS WILL REMAIN THE ONLY MEANS TO ACHIEVE MANY MISSION REQUIREMENTS MINIATURE SATELLITES HAVE DEMONSTRATED THE CAPABILITY TO REPLACE LARGE SYSTEMS FOR CERTAIN APPLICATIONS. MINIATURE SATELLITE TECHNOLOGY (MST) LOWERS COST BY REDUCING SATELLITE ENGINEERING AND FABRICATION COSTS AS WELL AS REDUCING LAUNCH COST DUE TO MUCH LOWER SATELLITE WEIGHT. DEFEN ...

  10. 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 ...
