  1. A Variable Thurst Detonation Wave Engine, DWE, for Mach 0 to 3 Applications

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes a novel, high thrust density Detonation Wave Engine (DWE) applicable to the Mach range of 0 to 3. The geometry of this novel engine concept naturally provides for integration into a new Combined Cycle Engine with Ramjets. The concept is an intermittent combustion jet engine that harnesses travelling detonation waves to accomplish compression and chemical reaction. The goal ...

  2. A Variable Thrust Detonation Wave Engine DWE for Mach 0 to 3

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    An innovative actively cooled structure concept is proposed which integrates proven cooling techniques and state-of-the-art fabrication methods to extend the maximum combustor wall temperature, thereby reducing cooling requirements and aircraft weight while improving engine performance. Specifically, CONvective and TRANspiration cooling (CONTRAN) are uniquely combined, relying on hydrogen coolant ...

  4. X-RAY MICROLITHOGRAPHY COLLIMATOR DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    DARPA AND THE U.S. SEMICONDUCTOR COMMUNITY ARE ACTIVELY DEVELOPING LASER-PRODUCED PLASMA (LPP) X-RAY SOURCES AS THE BASIS FOR X-RAY MICROLITHOGRAPHY EXPOSURE SYSTEMS. THESE LPP SOURCES WILL ALLOW THE CONSTRUCTION OF COMPACT EXPOSURE SYSTEMS THAT CAN BE EASILY INTEGRATED INTO EXISTING SEMICONDUCTOR FABRICATION LINES, AT A COSTSUBSTANTIALLY LESS THAN THAT OF COMPARABLE SYNCHROTRON EXPOSURE BEAM-LINE ...

  5. NON-DESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF IMPURITIES AND DEFECTS IN ULTRA-THIN SEMICONDUCTOR FILMS

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    THE SCANNING PHOTOVOLTAGE (SPV) TECHNIQUE IS A NON-DESTRUCTIVE, HIGH RESOLUTION OPTICAL METHOD FOR MAPPING ELECTRICALLY-ACTIVE DEFECTS IN SEMICONDUCTORS. THE POTENTIAL OF THE SPV TECHNIQUE HAS NOT BEEN REALIZED FOR MODERN, ULTRA-THIN FILM MATERIALS, HOWEVER, BECAUSE OF MULTIPLE REFLECTION INTERFERENCE EFFECTS WHICH MASK THE DEFECT-RELATED SIGNALS. MEASUREMENTS ARE FURTHER HAMPERED BY LOW SIGNAL-TO ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF A STARING UNDERWATER LASER RADAR RECEIVER

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

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES AN INNOVATIVE AND PROPRIETARY MULTIPLE DETECTOR FOCAL PLANE ASSEMBLY (FPA) DESIGNED TO BE USED FOR HIGH RESOLUTION 3 DIMENSIONAL IMAGING (STARING) UNDERWATER LASER RADAR. THIS FPA DESIGN HAS THE FOLLOWING CHARACTERISTICS: CAN BE USED TO DETERMINE THE TIME-OF-ARRIVAL OF A LASER PULSE AT EACH DETECTOR ELEMENT IN THE ARRAY INDEPENDENT FROM THE OTHER DETECTOR ELEMENTS IN THE AR ...

  7. Instrumentation for Non-Intrusive Water Droplet Size and Mass Flux Measurements Utilizing the Phase Doppler Method

    SBC: Aerometrics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a need for non-intrusive instrumentation to characterize the drop size distribution and volume flux in support of on-line engine/inlet icing tests. The ducts may vary from three to twelve feet in diameter with flow field speeds from Mach 0.2 to 0.5. The Phase Doppler technique offers the best potential for making these measurements non-intrusively and with sufficient accuracy to meet the ...

  9. INFLATABLE SMART MISSILE WING DESIGN EVALUATION

    SBC: AEROTECH ENGINEERING & RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THREE AREAS OF ACTIVE MISSILE WING RESEARCH WILL BE PURSUED. THE FIRST SECTION WILL EVALUATE THE MATERIALS TO BE USED IN THE INFLATABLE WING SPARS, RIBS, SKINS, PRESSURE BLADDERS AND ACTIVE ELEMENTS. SPECIMENS OF HIGH ORTHOGONALITY COMPOSITES (POLYURETHANE-GRAPHITE) WILL BE CONSTRUCTED ALONG WITH SAMPLE ISOTROPIC BLADDER MATERIALS (MYLAR OR TEFLON) SO THAT THEIR FUNDAMENTAL PROPERTIES CAN BE EVALU ...

  10. Application Specific Electronic Design Synthesis

    SBC: Akm Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force and other DoD organizations are continuously developing new electronic components for their weapons and other systems. In this effort they are in need of tools to aid in the automated design, or synthesis, of these components. One component of particular importance is the computer processor. It is of enough importance that the Air Force has established a standard for this device (MIL ...
