  1. GRAPHITE/PHASE-CHANGE-MATERIAL THERMAL STORAGE COMPOSITE

    SBC: Energy Science Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERMAL MANAGEMENT OF FLUCTUATING POWER IN SPACECRAFT IS AIDED BY THE USE OF SUITABLY PLACED THERMAL ENERGY STORAGE (TES), WHICH OFTEN USES LATENT HEAT OF PHASE-CHANGE MATERIALS (PCMS) FOR THE STORAGE MEDIUM. AN OUTSTANDING PROBLEM WITH TES IS HOW TO GET THE THERMAL RESPONSE FAST ENOUGH TO ACCOMMODATE PULSE-POWER SITUATIONS. TO ADDRESS THIS NEED, THE FEASIBILITY IS BEING DEMONSTRATED OF HIGH-FLUX ...

  2. BRILLIANT GUIDANCE FOR ICBMS

    SBC: Atss Inc.            Topic: N/A

    BRILLIANT GUIDANCE SYSTEMS FOR ICBMS WILL RELY ON ADVANCED THERMAL PROTECTION AND PROCESSING TECHNOLOGIES TO PRESERVE SENSOR PERFORMANCE IN SEVERE REENTRY ENVIRONMENTS. IN THIS STUDY REENTRY EFFECTS ON SENSORS WILL BE ASSESSED, AND PASSIVE AND ACTIVE THERMAL PROTECTION SYSTEMS WILL BE EVALUATED. MEANS OF USING ADVANCED SIGNAL PROCESSING METHODS TO REDUCE REENTRY-INDUCED ERRORS WILL BE EXPLORED. TH ...

  3. THE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF A 1750A COMPUTER CHIP SET IN GALLIUM ARSENIDE

    SBC: Giga-bit Logic Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE EVER INCREASING NEED FOR HIGHER PERFORMANCE MICROCOMPUTER COMPONENTS CAPABLE OF SATISFYING REAL TIME COMPUTATIONAL REQUIREMENTS IN CURRENT AND FUTURE MISSILE, RE-ENTRY, AND POST-BOOST VEHICLE APPLICATIONS ARE REAL AND DEMANDING NECESSITIES. CURRENTLY AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGY IS BEING TAXED TO THE LIMITS OF ITS PERFORMANCE CAPABILITIES ESPECIALLY IN THE AREA OF NUCLEAR HARDNESS. ESTIMATES OF FUTURE ...

  4. ANTENNA WINDOW ABLATION

    SBC: Atss Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TRANSIENT THREE-DIMENSIONAL ANALYSIS METHODS SHALL BE ADDED TO THE COUPLE CODE (A CURRENT AIR FORCE ANTENNA WINDOW ABLATION ANALYSIS METHOD) TO PREDICT ANTENNA WINDOW/HEATSHIELD SHAPE CHANGE FOR MANEUVERING REENTRY VEHICLES. THE ANALYSIS METHOD SHALL CONSIDER BOTH MONOLITHIC AND BUTTON ARRAY ANTENNA WINDOW DESIGNS. ANGLE-OFATTACK EFFECTS INDUCED BY MANEUVERING FUNCTIONS SHALL BE INCLUDED IN THE FL ...

  5. ACCELERATION HARDENED 84 GHZ TRANSMITTER

    SBC: Epsilon Lambda Electronics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROJECT WILL DEVELOP AND TEST A HARDENED GUNN VOLTAGE CONTROLLED OSCILLATOR (VCO) CAPABLE OF SURVIVAL TO A LEVEL OF AT LEAST 50,000 G WITH A GOAL OF 100,000 G. SUCH AN OSCILLATOR HAS POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS TO PROJECTILES OR MISSILES WHICH EXPERIENCE VERY HIGH SHOCK DURING FIRING (LAUNCH). THE DESIGN INVOLVES USE OF A RIGID CHOKE STRUCTURE WHICH PREVENTS TOP LOADING ON THE GUNN AND VARACTOR DIO ...

  6. MULTI-COLOR PBSSE ARRAY

    SBC: Electro-optek Corp            Topic: N/A

    EPITAXIAL GROWTH OF THIN LAYERS OF PBS(X)SE(1-X) ON BAF(2) SUBSTRATE BY MOLECULAR BEAM EPITAXY (MBE) HAS BEEN PROPOSED. THE MBE TECHNIQUE CAN PRODUCE HIGH-QUALITY MULTILAYERS OF PBS(X)SE(1-X) WITH DIFFERENT X VALUES, WHICH WILL GIVE RISE TO DIFFERENT CUTOFF WAVELENGTHS IN THE INFRARED SPECTRAL REGION. SCHOTTKY-BARRIER DETECTORS CAN THEN BE FABRICATED BY DEPOSITING AN APPROPRIATE METAL ON TOP OF TH ...

  7. LOW COST ALTERNATE LAUNCH SYSTEM FOR FLIGHT TESTING

    SBC: Space Data Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A STUDY OF THE USE OF A MULTI-STAGE SOUNDING ROCKET AS A LOW COST ALTERNATE LAUNCH SYSTEM FOR FLIGHT TESTING OF SMALL REENTRY VEHICLES AT THE KWAJALEIN MISSILE RANGE (KMR) WILL BE PERFORMED. A COMBINATION OF GUIDED AND UNGUIDED STAGES IS CONTEMPLATED. A RELATIVELY LOW-COST, HIGH-PERFORMANCE SOLID MOTOR IS REQUIRED FOR THE FINAL VELOCITY STAGE. SELECTION OF A LAUNCH SITE IN THE NEAR VICINITY OF KMR ...

  8. A COMPREHENSIVE PNS UPGRADE FOR THREE-DIMENSIONAL REENTRY FLOW PREDICTION

    SBC: Computational Mechan            Topic: N/A

    THE MISSION OF THIS PHASE I PROJECT IS COMPLETION OF A TRULY INNOVATIVE STUDY TO UPGRADE EXISTING PNS CODES FOR COMPUTING HIGHSPEED, THREE-DIMENSIONAL RE-ENTRY FLOWFIELDS. THE PLAN OF ACTION ENCOMPASSES A THOROUGH EXAMINATION OF THE RANGE OF ADMISSABLE CFD THEORIES, TO UNEQUIVACALLY COMPARE STRONG AND WEAK POINTS FOR APPLICATION TO THE REYNOLDS-AVERAGED NAVIER-STOKES EQUATIONS WITH DIFFERENTIAL EQ ...

  9. APPLICATION OF THE SCANNING TUNNELING MICROSCOPE FOR NON-CONTACT TESTING OF HGCDTE DIODES

    SBC: FIBERTEK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL METHOD FOR NON-CONTACT, NON-INVASIVE IN-SITU PHOTODIODE EVALUATION ON THE WAFER IS PROPOSED. THE PROPOSED METHOD IS BASED ON A MODIFIED FORM OF THE SCANNING TUNNELING MICROSCOPE (STM). ALTHOUGH PRIMARILY A TOOL FOR MATERIALS SURFACE RESEARCH, WE BELIEVE THE TECHNIQUE CAN BE ADAPTED TO MEASURE CURRENT THROUGH THE DIODE VIA TUNNELING FROM THE PROBE TIP TO THE CONTACTIVE PADS OF THE DIODES. I ...
