  3. High-Response Total Temperature Distortion Measurement

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: AF03251

    Measurement of gas total temperature, particularly in highly unsteady transonic flow, continues to demand spatial and temporal resolution beyond the capabilities of most existing probe deployed sensors, but is essential to elucidate the role of inlet gas temperature distortion on gas turbine engine performance. To meet this requirement, MetroLaser has proposed and demonstrated, under the Phase I S ...

  4. Design of Mobile, Wireless (Ad Hoc) Networks Using Smart Antennas

    SBC: SAN DIEGO RESEARCH CENTER, INC.            Topic: SB022024

    Smart antennas, with their ability to form multiple beams of arbitrary time-varying patterns, offer the means to achieve significant performance benefits in multi-hop mobile wireless networks. The realizable gains in performance depend upon the capabilities of the antennas and the algorithms employed to control the use of their transmission resources. In our Phase I the San Diego Research Center, ...

  5. Deep Ultraviolet Laser Diode for UV-Resonance Enhanced Raman Identification of Biological Agents

    SBC: Photon Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB022043

    This proposal addresses the need for deep UV semiconductor lasers for use in UV resonance enhanced Raman spectroscopic identification of biological agents. The proposed approach avoids the problems of p-doping and ohmic contacts by using subminiature direct electron injection excitation of an InAlGaN heterostructure. We have demonstrated strong stimulated emission at 274nm using this approach with ...

  6. Sub-Wavelength Lithography Employing Phase Masks

    SBC: LUMINESCENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SB031004

    Luminescent Technologies is developing a disruptive innovation to improve sub-wavelength lithography for semiconductor manufacturing. The company has developed a new approach for optimizing photomasks as an inverse problem. It is a radical departure from existing resolution enhancement technologies that merely perturb the original design. Unlike existing techniques, this technology will conside ...

  8. High Performance Object Oriented Software for Parallel Embedded Systems

    SBC: CODESOURCERY, INC.            Topic: OSD03022

    CodeSourcery will develop an optimized, parallel VSIPL++ implementation. CodeSourcery's implementation will support the entire VSIPL++ API and will be optimized for both serial and parallel performance. CodeSourcery will use expression template techniques to make serial optimizations (such as loop fusion) and parallel optimizations (such as message optimizations).

  10. Thermal/Shock Isolation System and Materials for CAV Paylaod

    SBC: OCELLUS, INC.            Topic: AF03019

    CAV is a concept for a hypersonic maneuvering reentry vehicle that brings a payload through the atmosphere from (sub)orbital trajectory. A key technology need for CAV and other hypersonic vehicles is durable, lightweight insulation that isolates high temperature, shock, vibration, and acoustic loads. In Phase I, Ocellus proposed an exceptional new composite material to meet or exceed CAV requirem ...
