  1. DEVELOPMENT OF A SENSITIVE, RAPID CHEMICAL/BIOLOGICAL AGENT DETECTOR

    SBC: SURMODICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE RAPID DEVELOPMENT OF BIOTECHNOLOGY HAS MADE IT IMPERATIVE TO DETECT BIOHAZARDS WHICH MAY BE ENCOUNTERED INI STRATEGIC AREAS OF AIR FORCE OPERATIONS. THE RELEASE OF BIOLOGICAL/CHEMICAL WARFARE AGENTS IN A DEEP BASE WOULD PRESENT A SIGNIFICANT THREAT. IN PHASE I OF THIS PROPOSAL, WE WILL DEVELOP A QUALITATIVE METHOD OF DETECTING LOW CONCENTRATIONS OF AIRBORNE CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL AGENTS. THIS ...

  2. TRANSMISSION HOLOGRAPHIC RELAY LENS FOR AIRCRAFT HEAD UP DISPLAY

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED EFFORT IS TO REDUCE THE SIZE, WEIGHT, AND COST OF THE RELAY OPTICS OF THE AIRCRAFT HEAD UP DISPLAY (HUD), BY REPLACING IT WITH TRANSMISSION HOLOGRAPHIC LENSES. HOLOGRAPHIC LENSES ARE VERY LIGHT AND CAN BE MANUFACTURED AT VERY LOW COSTS. APPLICATIONS OF HOLOGRAPHIC LENSES TO HUD WERE LIMITED IN THE PAST, DUE TO WIDE SPECTRAL BAND OF THE HUD - CATHODE RAY TUBE (CRT). HO ...

  3. POWER-AUGMENTED EXOSKELETON DEMONSTRATION UNIT

    SBC: Prt Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DETAILS A DEVELOPMENT PROJECT WHICH WILL DEMONSTRATE FEASIBILITY OF A POWER-AUGMENTED EXOSKELETON. AN EXOSKELETON IS A JOINTED, EXTERNAL FRAMEWORK WORN BY A USER. FORCE SENSORS DETECT USER MOVEMENTS AND, THROUGH MODERN FEEDBACK CONTROL TECHNIQUES, POWER THE EXOSKELETON LIMBS. A USER'S STRENGTH CAN THUS BE MAGNIFIED THREE OR FIVE TIMES WITHOUT LOSS OF DEXTERITY OR SPEED. THE PROJECT I ...

  4. INTEGRATED OPTICS SCANNER FOR WAFER INTERCONNECT

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CONVENTIONAL INTERCONNECT AND SWITCHING TECHNOLOGY HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AS A LIMITATION IN HIGH THRUPUT PROCESSORS AND COMPUTERS. WAFER SCALE INTEGRATION IS ONE TECHNIQUE TO RESOLVE INTERCONNECT PROBLEMS. METHODS OF INTERFACING TO WAFER SCALE DEVICES WILL RESOLVE INTERCONNECT PROBLEMS. METHODS OF INTERFACING TO WAFER SCALE DEVICES WILL REQUIRE OPTICAL INTERCONNECT TECHNIQUES. IMPLEMENTING COMMUNICA ...

  5. CLOSED SYSTEM HIGH FLUX EVAPORATIVE SPRAY COOLING

    SBC: ISOTHERMAL SYSTEMS RESEARCH            Topic: N/A

    ISR PROPOSES TO CONDUCT A PROOF-OF-CONCEPT STUDY OF A UNIQUE HIGHFLUX TWO-PHASE THERMAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR SPACECRAFT. THIS SYSTEM COUPLES HIGH POWER DENSITY EVAPORATIVE SPRAY COOLING WITH AN EXPANDABLE VAPOR STORAGE AND CONDENSATION DEVICE. PREVIOUS WORK HAS DEMONSTRATED THE IMMENSE POTENTIAL OF EVAPORATIVE SPRAY COOLING FOR REMOVING EXTREMELY HIGH HEAT FLUXES (@0 W/CM[2]) WITH VERY SMALL TEMP ...

  6. FAIL-SAFE FAULT-TOLERANT ELECTRONICS

    SBC: Daina            Topic: N/A

    FUTURE MILITARY AVIONICS SYSTEMS WILL REQUIRE AT LEAST AN ORDER OF MAGNITUDE IMPROVEMENT IN MEAN TIME BETWEEN CRITICAL FAILURES. TO ACHIEVE THIS GOAL INNOVATIVE FAIL-SAFE FAULT-TOLERANT ELECTRONIC SYSTEM DESIGN CONCEPTS WILL BE NEEDED. THE APPROACH PROPOSED BY DAINA WILL BE BASED ON THE USE OF EXTERNAL ENVIRONMENT DATA, BUILT-IN RELIABILITY MODEL, ADAPTIVE STATISTICAL SYSTEM STATE AND PARAMETER ES ...

  7. PULSE TO DIGITAL CONVERSION SYSTEM

    SBC: Moscow Electronics Co            Topic: N/A

    THE COMPLETE DESIGN IS PRESENTED WITHIN THIS PROPOSAL FOR A SYSTEM WHICH WILL PROVIDE A PRECISE, ONE-STEP CONVERSION DIRECTLY FROM A PULSE TRAIN INPUT TO A DIGITIZED PULSE RATE OUTPUT. IT IS A DISTRIBUTED PROCESSOR SYSTEM EMPLOYING A MASTER CONTROL PROCESSOR AND FROM 2 TO 30 IDENTICAL PULSE MODULES. THE PULSE MODULE IS A STANDALONE UNIT WHICH PERFORMS THE PULSE PERIOD MEASUREMENT. THE MICROPROCESS ...

  8. INTUITIVE COCKPIT DISPLAYS FOR FIGHTER AIRCRAFT

    SBC: Prismoid Optical            Topic: N/A

    THIS DISPLAY TECHNIQUE USES A SERIES OF ACCURATELY PLACED PARTIALLY REFLECTING MIRRORS (RESEMBLING CURVED LOUVERS) WITHIN THE VISOR THICKNESS IN AN AREA THE DISPLAY IS DESIREDTO BE OBSERVED. THE DISPLAY CAN BE PLACED AT ALMOST ANY POSITION AROUND THE HELMET EDGE. THE OPTICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE LOUVERS ALLOW THE DISPLAY TO BE DIRECTED TOWARD THE EYE. THE ABILITY TO BE ABLE TO DESIGN A LOUVER MI ...

  9. PREDICTING 3-D WINDFLOWS AT VENDENBERG AFB USING A MESOSCALE NUMERICAL MODEL

    SBC: R*scan Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE PREDICTION OF MESOSCALE DISPERSION, FOR EMERGENCY RESPONSE PURPOSES, IS CRITICALLY DEPENDENT UPON ACCURATELY FORECASTING THE 3-D WIND FIELD WITHIN THE DOMAIN OF INTEREST SEVERAL HOURS IN ADVANCE. CURRENTLY AVAILABLE EMERGENCY RESPONSE SYSTEMS, WHICH TYPICALLY USE SOME FORM OF GAUSSIAN DIFFUSION MODEL COMBINED WITH WIND FIELDS INTERPOLATED FROM SCATTERED SURFACE LAYER WIND MEASUREMENTS, ARE, UN ...

  10. SOLID STATE LASER SCANNER FOR LASER ORDNANCE INITIATOR

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SOLID STATE LASER SCANNER FOR ROUTING A HIGH ENERGY LASER BEAM AMONG THE FIBER OPTIC ENERGY TRANSFER PATHS OF A LASER ORDNANCE INITIATION SYSTEM. A SOLID STATE LASER SCANNER WITH NO MOVING PARTS WILL ENABLE A MORE COMPACT AND DURABLE LASER ORDNANCE INITIATION SYSTEM. APA OPTICS' SOLID STATE LASER SCANNER UTILIZES INTERGRATED OPTIC WAVEGUIDES OF ALGAAS A ...
