  1. Nano Barium Titanate/Polymer Dielectric Films for High Volt


    More compact high voltage firing capacitors are required for state of the art detonators used for advanced electronic fuzes. This can be achieved via development of a superior dielectric based upon combination of a processible polymer and a nanoparticulate ceramic material having a very high dielectric constant. While accomplishing this task, the composite must offer a breakdown strength of at l ...

    SBC: DACCO SCI, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Non-destructive inspection and evaluation (NDI, NDE) of adhesive joint integrity commonly requires separation of an interface or, in limited cases, a kissing unbond that has intimate contact, but no interfacial strength. DACCO SCI, Inc., and Michigan State University propose to adapt an in-situ corrosion sensor to detect the ingress of moisture into a bondline and the subsequent deterioration of ...

  3. Differential Geometric Tools for Visualizing and Understand

    SBC: Equinox Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Proposed are the development of novel differential geometric tools for the visualization of multi-spectral imagery. These tools will enable a user to optimally visualize local image contrast inher-ent to a multispectral image in a psychophysically correct way. These tools will also enable a user to dynamically interact with a Riemann metric on photometric space for optimal contrast visual-ization.

  4. Advanced Technology for Demilitarization of Plastic Bonded

    SBC: GRADIENT TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    Gradient Technology in conjunction with Professor M. Hillmyer of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Minnesota proposed to develop advanced technology to recover and convert the explosive and urethane binder found in plastic bonded explosives. This technology provides a unique reclamation, recovery, and reuse opportunity for dramatically reducing the disposal cost of technology munit ...

  6. Ultrahigh Quality GaN Films

    SBC: Silver Sky Technologies            Topic: N/A

    The feasibility of chemical beam epitaxy to grow ultrahigh quality GaN thin films will be developed. This process will allow the growth of GaN on high thermal conductivity substrates and enable the fabrication of precision superlattice structures. GaN will be grown using Ga effusion cells and ammonia-in an ultrahigh vacuum environment. This growth rate will be in the 1 micron per hour range at tem ...

  7. Universal, Windows Based, High Speed Data Acquisition & Con

    SBC: SRS Technologies            Topic: N/A

    Current off-the-shelf Windows-based software/hardware data acquisition and control (DAC) systems are relatively slow, inflexible, and incapable of driving high speed, multi-channel systems. The proposed product will advance this technology through the development of an innovative, Windows-based Graphic User Interface (GUI) and required PC-resident module interfaced with a VXI chassis containing s ...

  8. Broadband Front Ends for Radar & Digital Receivers

    SBC: THESUS LOGIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Theseus Logic/SUNY-Stony Brook team is proposing to develop, demonstrate and commercialize Rapid Single Flux Quantum (RSFQ) circuit designed using NULL Convention Logic (NCL). Phase I of this program will demonstrate, by simulation and modeling, the feasibility of implementing logic gate structures in RSFQ technology which can exploi the effective delay insensitivity of NCL. In Phase II the te ...

  9. Optical Frequency Conversion for Efficient Blue Light Sourc

    SBC: TIME DOMAIN CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Time Domain Corporation proposes novel devices for achieving second harmonic generation in Laser Systems. The result will be a micro-size, layered, periodic, Semiconductor structure or a fiber Bragg grating that will perform several orders of magnitude better than devices in use today. Most second harmonic crystals that are currently used are of millimeter=size or greater. The simple design of ...
