  1. 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 ...

  2. ASSESSMENT OF MECHANICAL SHOCK SENSOR CAPABILITIES

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    THERE HAS BEEN LITTLE, IF ANY, DEVELOPMENT IN RECENT YEARS IN THE AREA OF MECHANICAL SHOCK (MS) SENSORS, ESPECIALLY SENSORS WITH HIGH FREQUENCY AND HIGH-G RESPONSE. IT IS PROPOSED THAT THROUGH THE USE OF LITERATURE SOURCES AN ASSESSMENT BE MADE OF THE STATE-OF-THE-ART IN MS SENSORS AND OF THE IMPROVABILITY OF THE MOST ADVANCED DEVICES TO EXTEND THEIR FREQUENCY AND DYNAMIC RANGE. IT IS ALSO PROPOSE ...

  3. PROCESS CONTROL FOR PRODUCTION OF HIGHLY SOLID FILLED EXPLOSIVES

    SBC: APPLIED ORDNANCE TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    COMPOSITE EXPLOSIVE MATERIALS LIKE PLASTIC BONDED EXPLOSIVES (PBX'S) ARE CONSIDERABLY LESS SENSITIVE TO HEAT, SHOCK AND IMPACT THAN CONVENTIONAL TNT-BASED EXPLOSIVES. THE NAVY USES THESE IN MANY LOW VOLUME MUNITIONS. THEIR INTRODUCTIONN INTO HIGH USE MUNITIONS WILL PROVIDE SUBSTANTIAL SHIP/PLATFORM SURVIVABILITY IMPROVEMENTS. THESE MATERIALS ARE COMPLEX AND COSTLY TO MIX AND LOAD USING EXISTING HI ...

  4. GROWTH AND CHARACTERIZATION OF CD(1-X)ZN(X)TE SINGLE CRYSTALS

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: N/A

    MERCURY CADMIUM TELLURIDE (MCT) HAS EMERGED AS THE SUPERIOR MATERIAL FOR INFRARED APPLICATIONS IN IMPORTANT 3-5 MICROMETER AND 8-13 MICROMETER RANGES CORRESPONDING TO ATMOSPHERIC WINDOWS. BULK GROWTH METHODS CANNOT PROVIDE DEVICE GRADE LARGE AREA CRYSTALS OF THIS MATERIAL. HENCE, IN ORDER TO REALIZE THE STATE-OF-THE-ART LARGE AREA DEVICES, EPITAXIAL GROWTH IS THE ONLY PLAUSIBLE TECHNIQUE AT THE PR ...

  5. APPLICATION OF OPTICAL MEASURE THEORY FOR REMOTE TEMPERATURE SENSING

    SBC: CAELUM RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    REDUCTION OF SATELLITE RADIANCE DATA TO TEMPERATURE PROFILES INVOLVES BOTH DIFFICULT MATHEMATICAL INVERSION ANALYSIS AS WELL AS COMPLICATED DATA PROCESSING. RECENTLY, THE APPLICATION OF THE OPTICAL MEASURE THEORY REPRESENTS A NOVEL APPROACH WHICH PROVIDE A SOLUTION FREE FROM THE NEED OF EXTERNALLY-IMPOSED CONSTRAINTS (KING, 1987). THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A SYSTEMATIC TECHNICAL ...

  6. MATERIALS FOR SUPPRESSION OF SHOCK PROPAGATION

    SBC: Cemcom Research Associates Inc            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH WILL BE CARRIED OUT TO DEMONSTRATE THE UNIQUE VALUE OF CHEMICALLY BONDED CERAMICS (CBC) AS MATERIALS FOR FABRICATION OF MECHANICAL DETERRENTS TO SYMPATHETIC DETONATION OF MUNITIONS. CBC MATERIALS WILL BE FORMULATED AND CHARACTERIZED FOR SHOCK ATTENUATING PROPERTIES AND FRAGMENT CAPTURE OR VELOCITY REDUCTION PROPERTIES. THE FINAL MATERIAL IS LIKELY TO BE A BINARY MATERIAL (TWO DIFFERENT TY ...

  7. STEAM GENERATOR WITH HEAT PIPE HEAT EXCHANGER

    SBC: DYNATHERM CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP A FIELD STEAM GENERATOR CAPABLE OF USING ANY UNTREATED WATER. THE PROPOSED CONCEPT UTILIZES HEAT PIPES AS INTERMEDIATE HEAT TRANSFER ELEMENTS BETWEEN THE BURNER AND THE BOILER SECTIONS. THE INCORPORATION OF HEAT PIPES CONVERTS THE STEAM GENERATOR FROM A "WATER TUBE" TO A "FIRE TUBE" BOILER. STEAM LOCOMOTIVES HAVE USED THIS DESIGN FOR OVER A CENTU ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF A PORTABLE G-HARDENED ELECTRO-PHYSIOLOGICAL DATA AND STORAGE DEVICE

    SBC: Gms Engineering Corp.            Topic: N/A

    IN THIS PROPOSE PHASE I SBIR DESIGN EFFORT, WE WILL DESIGN A PORTABLE, MULTICHANNEL, BATTERY-OPERATED DEVICE THAT WILL DIGITIZE, PROCESS, AND STORE PHYSIOLOGICAL DATA. IT WILL OPERATE IN FLIGHT UNDER HIGH LEVELS OF G STRESS. THE PROGRAMMABLE DEVICE WILL BE CAPABLE OF ACQUIRING DATA AT RATES SUFFICIENT TO RECORD EEG AND ECG WAVEFORMS. THROUGH THE USE OF DATA COMPRESSION TECHNIQUES, IT WILL ALLOW DA ...

  9. FABRICATION OF A HIGH STRENGTH POROUS ALUMINUM MATERIAL

    SBC: Hittman Materials And            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP THE MATERIAL AND PROCESS FOR THE FABRICATION OF A HIGH STRENGTH, POROUS ALUMINUM ALLOY MATERIAL. THE APPROACH TAKEN HERE IS BASED ON POWDER METALLURGICAL PROCESSING AND COVERS COLD ISOSTATIC PRESSING FOLLOWED BY SINTERING OF ALUMINUM POWDER METAL ALLOYS AND POWDER BLENDS. THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE HIGH STRENGTH POROUS MATERIALS IS BASED ON POWDER METAL PROCESSING OF HEAT T ...

  10. LIFE INDICATOR FOR CHEMICAL PROTECTIVE UNIFORMS

    SBC: HUGHES ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    FIVE CANDIDATE APPROACHES FOR DEVELOPING A FIELD TEST FOR DETERMINING THE PROTECTIVE CAPACITY OF ACTIVATED CHARCOAL IN CHEMICAL PROTECTIVE CLOTHING ARE PROPOSED. THESE WILL BE EVALUATED WITH RESPECT TO FEASIBILITY, ABILITY TO DISCRIMINATE AND REPRODUCABILITY. A FINAL FIELD TEST "APPARATUS" AND PROCEDURE WILL BE RECOMMENDED CONSIDERING ALSO EASE OF USE, SIMPLICITY, COST, DURABILITY AND RELIABILITY.
