  1. ADAPTIVE RADAR TECHNIQUES FOR IMPROVING CLUTTER SUPPRESSION AND DETECTION OF LOW CROSS SECTION TARGETS

    SBC: Adaptive Sensors Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AIRBORNE RADARS FOR THE DETECTION AND TARGETING OF LOW CROSS SECTION GROUND VEHICLES MUST TRANSMIT MORE POWER, USE LARGER ANTENNAS, AND/OR OPERATE AT SHORTER RANGES TO ACHIEVE THE REQUIRED SIGNAL-TO-NOISE RATIOS. IN ADDITION, A MAJOR IMPROVEMENT IN SUBCLUTTER VISIBILITY IS REQUIRED. THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A METHOD OF SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVING THE SUBCLUTTER VISIBILITY OF SPACE-TIME ADAPTIVE RADARS ...

  4. A COHERENT X-RAY SOURCE USING TRANSITION RADIATION

    SBC: Adelphi Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    BY DESIGNING TRANSITION RADIATORS SUCH THAT THERE IS UNIFORM FOIL THICKNESS AND SPACING, THE ANGLE OF EMISSION CAN BE REDUCED AND THE BRIGHTNESS OF THE X-RAY SOURCE INCREASED. UNDER THIS CONTRACT WE WILL CALCULATE THE BRIGHTNESS OF THIS SOURCE AND COMPARE IT TO SYNCHROTRON EMITTERS. IN ADDITION WE WILL INVESTIGATE METHODS FOR REDUCING THE ELECTRON BEAM ENERGY REQUIRED FOR THE PROCESS TO OCCUR. MET ...

  5. EVIDENCE ACCRUAL FOR MODEL BASED VISION

    SBC: Advanced Decision Systems            Topic: N/A

    SUCCESSFULLY APPLYING MODEL-BASED REASONING TO REAL WORLD VISION PROBLEMS (E.G. AUTOMATIC TARGET RECOGNITION ?ATR?) REQUIRES ACCURATE REPRESENTATION OF COMPLEX RELATIONSHIPS AMONG THINGS IN THE WORLD AND OBSERVABLE IMAGE FEATURES. EVIDENCE ACCRUAL TECHNIQUES MUST BE ABLE TO OPERATE OVER THESE RELATIONSHIPS WITH LITTLE LOSS IN INFORMATION. CURRENT TECHNIQUES SUCH AS BAYESIAN NETWORKS SHOW PROMISE, ...

  6. DISRUPTION OF ARMORED VEHICLE OPERATIONS

    SBC: 3s Navigation (dba For            Topic: N/A

    3S PROPOSES TO EXPLORE INNOVATIVE MEANS OF DISRUPTING THE TEMPO OF ARMORED VEHICLE OPERATIONS, COMMAND AND CONTROL, TARGET ACQUISITION AND LOGISTICS. THE TECHIQUES PROPOSED BY 3S WILL REDUCE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF ARMORED VEHICLE FIREPOWER AND RENDER THEM VULNERABLE TO ATTACK. THE PROPOSED TECHNOLOGIES ALSO HAVE THE PROSPECT OF SUPPORTING ANTI-DRUG AND ANTI-TERRORIST OPERATIONS. THE PHASE I EFFORT W ...

  7. IMPROVED DETECTOR TECHNOLOGY FOR HIGH-RESOLUTION X-RAY NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    HIGH-RESOLUTION COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY SHOWS SIGNIFICANT PROMISE IN AIDING THE DEVELOPMENT OF ADVANCED COMPOSITE MATERIALS WHICH ARE IMPORTANT IN IMPROVING AIRCRAFT PERFORMANCE. NONDESTRUCTIVE IMAGING OF THE INTERNAL STRUCTURE OF THESE MATERIALS CAN HELP IN IMPROVING PROCESSING QUALITY, IN DEVELOPING PERFORMANCE MODELS, AND IN EVALUATING MANUFACTURED COMPONENTS. CURRENT IMAGING PERFORMANCE COULD BE S ...

  8. GAAS WAFER TESTING FOR RADIATION-INDUCED TRANSIENT UPSET

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF A WAFER-LEVEL TESTING TECHNIQUE FOR MULTIGIGAHERTZ GAAS DIGITAL INTEGRATED CIRCUITS TO CHARACTERIZE THE TRANSIENT-RADIATION-INDUCED UPSET LEVEL IS PROPOSED. THIS CONCEPT WILL ALLOW THE OPTIMIZATION OF THE UPSET LEVEL IN HIGH PIN-OUT DENSITY CIRCUITS USING AN ON-SITE, QUICK TURNAROUND PROCEDURE FOR TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT AS WELL AS CIRCUIT SCREENING. THIS NONDESTRUCTIVE TECHNIQUE ...

  9. KISSING DEBOND DETECTION IN SOLID ROCKET MOTORS USING CT

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED WORK IS TO DEVELOP TECHNIQUES FOR DETECTING AND QUANTIFYING WEAK OR "KISSING" DEBONDS IN SOLID ROCKET MOTORS. THE PROPOSED TECHNIQUE IS BASED ON X-RAY COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY.IT IS INNOVATIVE BECAUSE IT DOES NOT REQUIRE THAT ANY GAPS IN THE DEBOND AREA BE RESOLVED. INSTEAD, IT RELIES ON MEASUREMENTS OF THE PROPELLANT DILATATION NEAR THE BONDED INTERFACE TO SHOW WHETHER LO ...

  10. MICROELECTRONICS CLUSTER TOOL SENSOR DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICE FABRICATION INDUSTRY, WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE, IS RAPIDLY DEVELOPING THE CLUSTER TOOL CONCEPT AS THE BASIS FOR ADVANCED DEVICE MANUFACTURING. THIS CONCEPT PROVIDES THE CLEAN VACUUM PROCESSING ENVIRONMENT NECESSARY FOR HIGH-YIELD PRODUCTION OF SUBMICRON-SCALE INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, AND PROMOTES ENHANCED PROCESS FLEXIBILITY AND IMPROVED FABRICATION-L ...
