  1. Upgrading of PIC Codes for HPM Tube Design

    SBC: A.J. Devaney Assoc., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The primary objective of this proposal is to develop an understanding from first principles of the macroscopic particle force equation arising from the microscopic particle and field interaction dynamics and to incorporate those effects in a self-consistent state-space (rate equation) PIC calculation. Effective current and charge density time-domain equation models will ...

    SBC: Alaphatech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An important problem in the analysis of ATR systems is quantifying the growth of algorithm requirements, such as storage and processing cost, as the input problem l situation in classical complexity analysis, where the notion of input size is well-defined, there does not currenlty exist a clear notion of input size for the ATR problem. In this effort ...

  3. Compound Core Active Multimode Fiber for High-efficiency Fi

    SBC: Altair Center, Llc.            Topic: N/A

    Altair Center proposes to develop a novel and innovative compound-core multimode active flber for high-efficiency fiber laser systems capable to operate in a single-mode regime. The compound multimode core of the fiber is especially designed in such a way to support propagation of a higher order mode exhibiting a sharp peak of its field in the central region of the core. The sharp-peak mode extrac ...

  4. Liquid Crystalline Adhesives with Zero Shrinkage

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed program will develop a liquid crystalline Adhesive with Zero Shrinkage, for bonding of airframe joints. Aspen Systems, Inc. is currently in the process of developing a new class of epoxide resins. These new epoxy materials are based on orderable, low molecular weight liquid crystalline structures with flexible, difunctional end chains. The structural ordering of the liquid crystallin ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. Microsatellite Propulsion Using EST Technology

    SBC: Electron Power Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase I proposal is aimed at development of propulsion systems for EKV and divert. propulsion systems for low-mass interceptors that will use Vector Thrust Pulsed Detonation Rocket Engine (VTPDRE) technology. Use of PDRE will increase power density, enhance modularity, and reduce cost. Further improvements will be realized by introducing configurations with multiple PDREs and non-mechani ...

  8. 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.

  9. Thermal Shock Resistant Hypersonic Sapphire Composite Infra

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Foster-Miller will demonstrate a truly innovative previously unexplored route to fabricate high temperature 3 to 5 micron infrared (IR) optical composite materials for IR window and dome applications. Our approach will provide an IR sapphire composite material that will have thermal shock; transmission, absorption and emission, strength, and durability characteristic that will be enhanced ...

  10. 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 ...
