  1. Agent-Based Planning Execution and Monitoring


    Superior information over one's adversary allows control of the battlespace, and ultimately provides opportunities to tales advantage of me adversary's vulnerability. C4I planning is critical to shape and control the pace and phasing of battlespace engagements, and requires direct access to battlespace information in order to utilize it effectively. Effective C4I planning requires the ability to ...

  2. Fluoropolymer Coating by In-Situ Polymerization on Dispersed Aluminum Nanoparticles

    SBC: AVEKA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Nanophase metal particles are becoming increasingly important in areas such as powder metallurgy, catalysis and energetic materials. One of the more important nanophase metals is aluminum . Although several promising routes for the production of this material exist, not one of these synthesis techniques have successfully addressed the issue of the oxidation of these same nanoparticles, which lea ...

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

    4H-silicon carbide power devices are expected to have 3x higher current densities and 200x lower on-resistance, while still operating up to 350 degree C. This is because of an order of magnitude higher breakdown electric field and a 2-3x higher thermal conductivity of 4H-SiC as compared to Si. Recent advances in 4H-SiC crystal quality, low doped epitaxial uniformity, dopant ion implantation, rea ...

  5. Plasma Ignitor- Aeroramp Injector for Ramjet/Scramjet Combustors

    SBC: Fluidyne Engineering Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The US Air Force plans to develop and demonstrate an aero-propulsion engine for hypersonic flight to Mach 8. This program focuses on use of hydrocarbon fuels and expendable engine designs for long-range cruise missile applications. A critical element for realization to the Air Force's hypersonic vehile mission is advancement in supersonic combustion ramjet engine technology. Development of conc ...

  6. Rapid Direct Connection Technology


    As pulsed power devices mature a requirement emerges for the efficient coupling of the power source of remote locations. For certain applications this coupling can take the form of existing high power switch/conditioning technology coupled with a suitable transmission line. For mobile, remote or harsh environments standard connection techniques are too bulky and require too much set-up time to b ...

  7. CAD Conversion Tools for VHDL-AMS Library Generation

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

    This project enables and incentivizes adaptation of IEEE Draft Standard 1076.1 (VHDL AMS) by mixed signal (analog/digital) engineers by providing a feasible, low risk migration path for existing SPICE like models (equivalence), then adds capability beyond that of SPICE (incentive). Specific work items include "black box" VHDL AMS source code generator technology, SPICEcompatible analog solver tech ...

  8. Broadband Electromagnetic Sensing for Weapons Detection

    SBC: GEOPHEX, LTD.            Topic: N/A

    The interest in detecting hand-carried weapons has significantly increased due to the recent trend toward relaxation of concealed weapons laws. In 1995, the Justice Dept launched a 2.15 million dollar initiative to develop and field-test several concealed weapons detection technologies. The methods being studied include low-frequency electromagnetic detection, passive milimeter wave imaging, mag ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Hazardous Waste Minimization of Paint Overspray Via Medialess Dynamic Particle Filtration

    SBC: InnovaTech, Inc            Topic: N/A

    A novel medialess dynamic particle filter, initially developed for removal of submicron solid particles from gaseous effluents, could be used to remove sticky liquid aerosols, thereby reducing hazardous waste disposition in military painting operations. This inherently self-cleaning filter, based on the patent-pending Boundary Layer Momentum Transfer (BLMT) concept, would be capable of meeting ne ...
