  1. Avionics Bus Data Compression

    SBC: Acroamatics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Acroamatics, Inc. proposed to perform research to develop a method permitting the telemetric transmission of avionics bus data from an air vehicle under test to a remote receiving station using a narrower radio frequency (rf) bandwidth than presently required. Increasing use of digital avionics in aircraft and reduced availability of rf spectrum make this an important topic of development. The s ...

  4. Monopropellant Hydrogen Plasma Ignition System for Hydrogen Rocket Engine

    SBC: Aero-plasma, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An innovative Microwave-Powered Monopropellant Hydrogen Plasma Ignition System for hydrogen fueled rocket engines, which develops a plasma using only the hydrogen feed gas to the igniter, is proposed to replace current enhanced spark or torch igniters which require the use of a pre-mixed quantity of hydrogen and oxidizer. The ignition system employs air plasma generation technology developed for ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
