  1. 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 ...

  2. EROSION RESISTANT CERAMIC COMPOSITE CONDUCTIVE RAIL

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    HYPERVELOCITY LAUNCHER SYSTEMS PLACE SEVERE DEMANDS ON BOTH THE INSULATOR AND CONDUCTIVE RAILS. RECENTLY A WHISKER REINFORCED ALUMINA INSULATOR RAIL SHOWED SUPERIOR EROSION PERFORMANCE IN RAIL GUN TEST, HOWEVER, THE CONDUCTIVE COPPER RAILS ERODED SEVERELY AS WELL AS CREATE AN ANTICIPATED EXPANSION PROBLEM IN FULL SCALE SYSTEMS. IT IS ANTICIPATED A CONDUCTIVE CERAMIC, TIB(2), COMPOSITE CAN PERFORM ...

  3. LOW CAPACITY RELIQUEFIER FOR STORAGE OF CRYOGENIC FLUIDS

    SBC: General Pneumatics Corp            Topic: N/A

    A SELF CONTAINED LIQUEFIER IS BEING DEVELOPED TO RECONDENSE THE VAPOR BOILOFF FROM THE CRYOGENIC LIQUID STORAGE DEWARS OF LONG LIFE SPACE POWER SYSTEMS. THE PROOF-OF-PRINCIPLE LIQUEFIER FOR THE CHALLENGING DUTY OF HELIUM LIQUEFACTION IS A SMALL LOW CAPACITY (10 LITRES LIQUID HELIUM PER DAY) UNCOMPLICATED SYSTEM HAVING A LONG MAINTENANCE FREE OPERATING LIFE AND LOW INITIAL COST WITH MODEST AUXILIAR ...

  4. RESEARCH IN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE FOR NON-COMMUNICATIONS ELECTRONIC WARFARE SYSTEMS

    SBC: Vista Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL PROPOSES TO INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A RAPID DEPLOYMENT CAPABILITY FOR TACTICAL COMBAT MODELS. THE CAPABILITY IS NECESSARY TO SUPPORT SAMPLING OF ALTERNATIVE SIMULATED TACTICAL DEPLOYMENTS (STDS), WHICH IS PRESENTLY NOT FEASIBLE TO DO ON A SCALE AND LEVEL OF DETAIL REQUIRED BY EXISTING LARGE-SCALE (THEATER LEVEL OR CORPS LEVEL) TACTICAL COMBAT MODELS. WITHOUT THIS CA ...

  5. STOICHIOMETRIC DIESEL ENGINE

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    A FEASIBILITY STUDY ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF A STOICHIOMETRIC DIESEL ENGINE IS PROPOSED USING THE THERMAL IGNITION COMBUSTION CHAMBER. THE ADIABATIC DIESEL ENGINE WITHOUT WATER OR AIR COOLING ALLOWS THE THERMAL IGNITION CHAMBER TO STORE HEAT DURING COMBUSTION AND RELEASE THE ENERGY FOR IGNITION IN THE FOLLOWING CYCLE. INJECTION OF FUEL ON TO 1800-2000 DEG. F WALL TEMPERATURE WILL PREPARE THE FUEL FOR ...

  6. LIGHTWEIGHT SEALED PARACHUTE AND HARNESS ASSEMBLY

    SBC: Simula, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE CURRENT NAVY INVENTORY OF PARACHUTES USED FOR NON-EJECTION EGRESS FROM AIRCRAFT IS PRIMARILY THE NB-8 CONFIGURATION. THIS PARACHUTE SYSTEM IS RELATIVELY HEAVY AND HAS A HIGH LIFE CYCLE COST RELATED TO THE FUEL CONSUMPTION, LOSS OF PAYLOAD CAPABILITY, AND REPACKING AT 210-DAY INTERVALS. THE PROGRAM DESCRIBED IN THIS PROPOSAL WILL EXPLORE POTENTIAL CONCEPTS FOR DEVELOPMENT OF A LIGHTWEIGHT ENVIR ...

  7. LIPOSOME SIALIDATION

    SBC: Siagenic Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEMONSTRATE FEASIBILITY OF INSERTION OF SIALIC ACID MOLECULES INTO MEMBRANES OF LIPOSOMES CARRYING HEMOGLOBIN. THE LIPOSOMES MAY BE PROVIDED BY NAVY CONTRACTORS OR PREPARED BY OFFEROR ACCORDING TO CONTRACTORS' SPECIFICATIONS FOR FOMULATION. THE ADDED SIALIC ACID WILL PROTECT THE LIPOSOMES FROM CLEARANCE BY THE RETICULOENDOTHELIAL SYSTEM AND THEREBY INCREASE THE RESIDENCY TIME O ...

  8. QUANTIFICATION AND MEASUREMENT OF VISUAL BIREFLECTANCE DISTRIBUTION FOR DECOYS

    SBC: Lighting Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL INVESTIGATE AND DEMONSTRATE THE CAPABILITY OF BIDIRECTIONAL REFLECTANCE DISTRIBUTION FUNCTIONS TO CHARACTERIZE THE REPLICATION ATTRIBUTES OF DECOYS, ALLOWING SPECIFICATION AND TOLERANCES TO BE DEVELOPED. THIS WILL BE PERFORMED BY A LITERATURE SEARCH, MATHEMATICAL ANALYSIS AND HUMAN SUBJECT TESTING. A GONIOREFLECTOMETER WILL BE DESIGNED AND BREADBOARDED TO INDICATE THE CAPABILITY ...
