  1. New Method for Determination of Acoustic Signatures in Wind Tunnel Testing

    SBC: Aero Systems Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The acoustic signature generated by test articles in high speed wind tunnel tests is difficult to measure due to the high level of background noise created by the wind tunnel flow. A unique research program using microphone arrays is proposed to addressthis issue. The program combines experimental tests and analytical algorithm development to devise a system able to reject the undesirable wind tu ...

  2. All Digital High Speed Visible Imaging Array

    SBC: AMAIN ELECTRONICS CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Amain proposes to develop a large staring array monolithic visible light camera with extremely low power analog to digital conversion, A/D, at each pixel. The approach is based on oversample A/D techniques developed for audio applications, generally knownin the industry as delta sigma A/D. Each pixel of the focal plane array will contain a patented converter named MOSAD, Multiplexed OverSample A/ ...

  4. Biological Decontamination for Forward-Deployed Airbase Using Low Temperature Air Plasmas

    SBC: ASI TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "ASI's plasma consultant, Igor Alexeff, PhD, has invented, tested and patented an atmospheric pressure, dc of 60 Hz AC discharge, that has been operated in air, helium, argon and nitrogen. The apparatus has in laboratory testing successfully destroyedmicroorganisms. The apparatus does not require a complicated, fragile RF power supply for operation. We propose it to be developed into equipment for ...

  6. 1kW Diesel Burning Man Portable Hybrid Electric Power System using Catalytic Fuel Ignition Technology

    SBC: Automotive Resources, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The Army has indicated significant need for lightweight, heavy fuel engines for use in a wide variety of battlefield missions. The Catalytic Ignition System (SmartPlugTM) developed and patented by Automotive Resources, Inc. (ARI) promises to fulfill theArmy's "One Fuel Forward" requirement without the need for replacing the gasoline engine with a new engine design. ARI had demonstrated the abilit ...

  7. Layered, 3-D RF/Optoelectronic Microstructures with Precision Kinematic Mount

    SBC: Avanti Optics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    "We propose to investigate the feasibility of using Avanti's self-aligning kinematic optoelectronic mounts for active 3-D RF/optoelectronic microstructures. We believe the unique benefit of our approach is the precision alignment of optoelectronic devicesfor coupling to the outside world (and layer-to-layer). This unique benefit is coupled with additional benefits of easy manufacturability, direct ...

  9. Gelled Nanophase Fuel

    SBC: AVEKA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "AVEKA, Inc. proposes the use of nanophase aluminum/hydrocarbon slurries produced by its proprietary process with a novel gelling agent to form an inexpensive gelled propellant. AVEKA's Gas Evaporative Reactor (GER) process produces nanophase aluminumslurries in hydrocarbon fluids. These slurries can be gelled easily using a unique, low molecular weight gelling agent. An ability to "melt" these ...
