  1. A Digital Library of Computer-System Security Vulnerabilities

    SBC: Interconnect Technologies            Topic: N/A

    A study will determine the feasibility of using a digital-library system for computer-system vulnerability information. The system model will draw upon advances being made in multi-agency NII digital library research projects, library science techniques being developed for digital media, and standardized WWW technologies. Technical objectives include determining how best to: 1) catalog and class ...

  2. Thomas Drop Net Concept

    SBC: Ocean Friendly            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of the Thomas Drop Net Concept is to introduce a new method of catching pure schools of surface feding fish with the ability to select only those schools of targeted species which are of desirable size. The method involves a helicopter deployed drop net which is lowered around a selected school of targeted species, pursed, and left floating. When the seiner arrives, they place a tr ...

  3. Physics Based Life Prediction of Thermal Barrier Coatings in Gas Turbines

    SBC: Optimal Corp            Topic: N/A

    Innovative methods, based on thermodynamics theory, will be developed to establish a unified approach in quantifying the damage state of thermal barrier coatings (TBC) under high temperature service conditions. After surveying existing material damage models, a mechanistic model which describes rate- and temperature-dependent deformation behavior of TBC with material damage will be proposed. Spe ...

  4. Development of Advanced Optical Diagnostic and Measurement Systems for Metals Processing Research

    SBC: STRATONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Stratonics will develop a suite of non-instrusive advanced optical diagnostics and measurement systems for advanced metal processing technologies; such as stomization, spray forming, and coating. Advanced manufacturing processes are under development in industry, national laboratories, and universities to provide super alloys, aluminum, and composites in the form of billet, sheet, and plate. Thi ...

  5. Autofratage Composite Design


    This project wil address the design and manufacture of a composite overwrapped tank with a thin metal liner, compatible with the requirements for containment of ultra-high purity gases. The complete tank design will be subjected to a Finite Element Analysis to provide a tank which will operate safely within the prescribed pressure limits of 200 bar (3000 psi) working pressure and 600 bar (9000 ps ...

  6. Smart Sensor Technology for Air Vehicles

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Sensors, using a two-dimensional array of detectors, either in a passive or active mode to obtain two or three dimensional images, are increasingly being considered for target detection and tracking. In addition, because of the large information content of two- and three-dimensional images, they are very useful for near-error-free object recognition and identification. However, a sen ...

  7. Tagging Acquisition Mode Radar Signals for Countermeasures

    SBC: Advent Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The capability to identify radar signals from enemy fighters about to launch a semi-active air-to-air missile would allow jamming before launch. If the attacking radar could be recognized within the first several pulses, the aircraft under attack would have this capability. Advent Systems proposes a nonconventional approach to the identification problem by using both intrapulse and c ...

  8. Digital Staring Array IR Imager with on Focal Plane Analog to Digital Conversion

    SBC: AMAIN ELECTRONICS CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    As the size of staring sensors increase, the bandwith to move data off the focal plan increases proportional to the number of pixels in the array. For analog focal planes increased bandwidth also means increased noise. Readout noise limited systems will be less sensitive, detector noise limited systems may become readout limited at the higher bandwidths. Power dissipation will also increase wit ...

    SBC: APOLLO INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a highly accurate surface profile data collection device that can be used to measure the buildup of ice on aero-surfaces. The device will be able to remotely collect the required data in a very short time and can be used for measurements of both static or rotating surfaces. By combining moire topography, a pulsed laser, and a digital data collection system, surface characteristics of ...

  10. A Producible VLWIR HgCdTe Heterostructure PhotodiodeTechnology

    SBC: AVYD DEVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Avyd Devices proposes a Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) growth based HgCdTe heterostructure photodiode approach to develop a technology capable of producing VLWIR HgCdTe arrays with high performance, high tolerance to nuclear radiation, high uniformity, high operability, and high yield for use in low background space environments. These essential elements of the approach entail: ¿ Heterostructure g ...
