  1. MULTIPLE LASER MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

    SBC: Apeiron Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE KEY PROBLEM TO BE ADDRESSED IN PHASE I OF THIS PROJECT WILL BE TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF A NOVEL POSITION MEASURING SYSTEM FOR A FAMILY OF COMPUTER CONTROLLED MACHINE TOOLS. THE MULTIPLE LASER MEASUREMENT SYSTEM (MLMS), WHICH FORMS THE BASIS OF THIS PROPOSAL, WILL MEASURE THE (X, Y, Z) POSITION OF THE CUTTING HEAD DIRECTLY AT RATES AND ACCURACIES SUFFICIENT FOR CLOSED LOOP POSITION CONTR ...

  2. ANALYSIS OF BALLISTIC RANGE DATA USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

    SBC: Arrow Tech Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ANALYSIS OF AEROBALLISTIC RANGE DATA IS A TEDIOUS AND TECHNICALLY CHALLENGING TASK. THE SOPHISTICATED ANALYSIS PROCEDURES AND REQUIRED SOFTWARE (COMPUTER PROGRAMS) HAVE BEEN REFINED EXTENSIVELY DURING THE PAST FIFTEEN TO TWENTY YEARS WITH THE ADDITION OF THE SIX-DEGREE-OF-FREEDOM CODES EMPLOYING THE MAXIMUM LIKELIHOOD METHOD. THE REQUIRED PROFICIENCY TAKES BETWEEN THREE AND FIVE YEARS UNDER TH ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR HIGH-DATA-RATE NONDENIABLE COMMUNICATIONS

    SBC: Green Mountain Radio Research Company            Topic: N/A

    MAINTAINING COMMAND-AND-CONTROL COMMUNICATIONS CONNECTIVITY CONTINUOUSLY THROUGH PRE-, TRANS-, AND POST-ATTACK PERIODS IS ESSENTIAL. COMMUNICATION LINKS FOR THIS APPLICATION SHOULD BE NONDENIABLE (BY NUCLEAR DETONATION) AND NONINTERRUPTABLE, AND SHOULD ALSO ALLOW COMMUNICATIONS WHILE IN MOTION AND HIGH DATA RATES. HOWEVER, CONVENTIONAL COMMUNICATION TECHNIQUES ARE ILL SUITED FOR USE IN THIS APPLIC ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Optoelectronic Integrated Circuits Based on Single Crystal GaN Waveguides

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

    We propose the exploration of single crystal GaN waveguides for the fabrication of optoelectronic integrated circuits. The feasibility of using GaN for short wavelength (up to 365 nm) OEIC's will be established in Phase I via the demonstration of a channel waveguide based phase shifter. The Al(sub x)GA(sub 1-x)N material system with its transparency from 365 nm to 12 microns, tunable refractive in ...

  8. Advanced Determination and Control of Steady and Dynamic Excitations for Turbopumps Using Magnetic Bearings

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The design, fabrication, and testing of a pump rig supported by a magnetic bearing system is described. This rig will boost pump technology by: (1) permitting accurate determination of impeller force and moment coefficients by electromagnetic impulse excitation, orbit control, and bearing force and displacement measurement during operation, and (2) use of control theory to suppress cavitation-surg ...

  9. Advantages of Two-Phase Switched Reluctance Machines for More Electric Aircraft Power Generation

    SBC: ISOTHERMAL SYSTEMS RESEARCH            Topic: N/A

    The current development of an electric power generation system for the More Electric Aircraft (MEA) is based on a low-risk extension of existing three-phase, switched reluctance machine (SRM) technology. This research program proposes to study an alternate two-phase SRM and its associated power-conditioning converter. By the nature of the proposed machine, it has 50% of its stator coils active at ...
