  1. Three-Dimensional Electromagnetic Modeling and Simulation of MMICs and Interconnects in Microwave Packages

    SBC: ANSOFT CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A methodology is proposed for introducing the capability of modeling active MMICs into the industry-standard three dimensional electromagnetic field simulator High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) and Maxwell SI Eminence. The first objective of the proposed work is to evaluate the existing capabilities of HFSS/Eminence for characterizing the passive three dimensional interconnect problems as ...

  2. Focused Application Software for Design of Ferrite Patch Antennas

    SBC: ANSOFT CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Currently, most antenna array designs are mechanically steered. However, as demand for higher performance antennas increases, an electronic replacement for the mechanical system becomes necessary. An alternative that may prove to be more cost effective is to use ferrite patch antennas as the elements in the array. The antenna's radiation characteristics are controlled by the direction and magni ...

  3. A GaN-A1GaN CCD for UV Imaging Applications

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

    We propose a unique GaN-Al(sub x)Ga(sub 1-x)N heterojunction based CCD for imaging in the ultraviolet (wavelengths less than 365 nm). Our proposed device will be solid state, TTL compatible and in it's final configuration solar blind. The Phase I program is aimed at establishing the technical feasibility of our device concept. Our proposed CCD is in essence a GaN-AlGaN gated photoconductor with ...

  5. Low Cost, High Energy Semiconductor Switches

    SBC: Aria Corp            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes new low cost, low risk semiconductor-based approaches to fuze trigger circuit technology. These innovative approaches build on the promising new technology platform developed by ARIA as part of earlier SBIR research. ARIA's technology platform, initially developed for driving extremely high speed (400 picosecond rise time), high peak current pulses (400A) through laser di ...

  6. Novel Membrane-Based System for Shipboard Treatment of GrayWater and Oily Waste Water

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Navy ships generate large valumes of graywater and oily wastewaters but most have minimal capacities for storing these wastes. The goal of this program is to develop a membrane-based shipboard graywater-treatment system (GTS) that allows recovery of more than 95% of the wastewater, reducing the volume of wastewater that must be stored by a factor of at least 20. Key to this system is development o ...

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    A concept for an Eye-Voice Interface for Three-dimensional Applications (EVITA) is proposed as an ideal interface technology to facilitate the performance of humans required to work in three-dimensional computer graphic environments. EVITA builds on earlier research performed by the proposed principal investigator and research team which demonstrated the feasibility of versatile discrete and conti ...

  8. ScanEval: An approach for Integrating Eye Tracking into Automated Instructional Environments

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    A concept for intelligent, multimedia computer-based training systems integrating intelligent agents with eye tracking and speech (ScanEval) is presented as a means of developing training systems that are more responsive, engaging, and motivating to trainees than current systems relying on more traditional user interface and pedagogical sequencing mechanisms. It is argued, based on published rese ...

  9. Development of the HUMS Interface System (HINTS) for Helicopters

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    CHI Systems proposes to develop a Man-Machine Interface for a Health and Usage Monitoring System (HUMS), a collection of mechanical diagnostic technologies that are being introduced in helicopter platforms and which offer opportunities for real-time crew analysis of mechanical subsystem states framed in a mission context. Our proposed system, HINTS, is designed to use HUMS diagnostic outcomes and ...

  10. Tool for Modeling and Analysis of Distributed Decision-Making Systems

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    In response to the recent Navy trend toward organizational structures which decentralize and distribute decision-making in both tactical and non-tactical environments. CHI Systems proposes to develop a general tool for analyzing distributed decision-making and information processing. The research proposed is based on over ten years of efforts in which the Principal Investigator and colleagu ...
