  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. HIGH TEMPERATURE TRIBOMETER

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A MACHINE TO EVALUATE THE FRICTION AND WEAR PROPERTIES OF MATERIALS AT TEMPERATURES UP TO 1000 DEG C IS PROPOSED. BOTH LUBRICATED AND UNLUBRICATED TESTING WITH LIQUIDS AND SOLIDS WILL BE POSSIBLE USING A PIN-ON-DISC GEOMETRY. COMPLETE CONTROL OVER THE TEST ATMOSPHERE AND MANUAL OR COMPUTER-CONTROL OF ALL VARIABLES WILL BE POSSIBLE DATA ACQUISITION AND STORAGE WILL BE PERFORMED BY COMPUTER. THE TRI ...

  3. INFRARED DECOY SPECTRAL SIGNATURE MODIFICATION

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

    PRESENT INFRARED DECOYS FOR PROTECTION OF NAVY SHIPS ARE RELIABLE, HIGH INTENSITY COMBUSTION SOURCES. HOWEVER, THEIR EMISSION SPECTRA HAVE CHARACTERISTICS WHICH ALLOW THEM TO BE DISTINGUISHED FROM THE SHIPS THEY ARE INTENDED TO PROTECT. IT IS DESIRABLE TO DEVELOP MODIFIED FUELS WHOSE COMBUSTION WOULD PRODUCE INFRARED SIGNATURES WITH THE APPROPRIATE SPECTRAL PROPERTIES. THIS GOAL REQUIRES A DETAILE ...

  4. FUEL CELLS FOR NAVAL AUXILIARY POWER

    SBC: ANALYTIC POWER LLC            Topic: N/A

    ANALYTIC POWER PROPOSES A SYSTEM ANALYSIS OF THREE POTENTIAL NAVAL AUXILIARY POWER PLANTS USING FUEL CELL TECHNOLOGY. A SYSTEMS ANALYSIS OF THIS APPLICATION IS MANDATORY BECAUSE, MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, THE FUEL CELL IS NOT THE LIMITING TECHNOLOGY. IN MANY CASES, THE FUEL PROCESSOR CAN BE MUCH LARGER THAN THE FUEL TAN AND THE POWER CONDITIONER MAY BE LARGER THAN THE FUEL CELL. CONVENTIONAL COMMERCIAL ...

  5. NOVEL FIBER OPTIC MULTIMODE FEED FOR MONOPULSE LIDAR ANTENNA APPLICATION

    SBC: Anro Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL MULTIMODE FEED FOR A COHERENT AMPLITUDE MONOPULSE LIDAR IS PROPOSED. THE HEART OF THIS FEED CONFIGURATION IS A MULTIMODE GRADIENT INDEX (SLAB) FIBER COUPLED TO THE SECOND FIBER IDENTICAL WITH THE FIRST TO FORM A MULTIMODE DIRECTIONAL COUPLER WITH SPECIALIZED PERFORMANCE. THE SIGNAL (BEACON OR LIDAR RETURN) IS FOCUSSED BY THE ANTENNA OBJECTIVE ONTO THE PLANE END OF ONE FIBER. THE SPOT DISPL ...

  6. EXHAUST HEAT DRIVEN THERMOELECTRIC FAN

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

    DURING COLD AMBIENT CONDITIONS, THE THERMAL GRADIENTS CREATED BY STANDARD NON-ELECTRIC MILITARY HEATERS IN ARMY TENTS AND BARRACKS PRODUCE UNCOMFORTABLE LIVING CONDITIONS. CIRCULATION OF THE INTERIOR AIR BY A FAN REDUCES SIGNIFICANTLY THE THERMAL GRADIENTS. HOWEVER, WITH THE ABSENCE OF ELECTRICITY, THERE IS A NEED FOR POWER NOT ONLY FOR THE FAN BUT ALSO FOR OTHER ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT. ASPEN SYSTEM ...

  7. ION ASSISTED DEPOSITION OF HARD OPTICAL COATINGS

    SBC: Barr Assoc Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE ION ASSISTED DEPOSITION (IAD) PROCESS WILL BE EMPLOYED DURING DEPOSITION OF DIELECTRIC COATINGS WITH IMPROVED EROSION RESISTANCE. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE COMMERCIAL FEASIBILITY OF THE IAD PROCESS TO PRODUCE HARD OPTICAL COATINGS. THE EFFORT WILL CONSIST OF A MATRIX OF FIVE COATING MATERIALS AND THREE DEPOSITION CONDITIONS. THE MATERIALS CHOSEN HAVE A WIDE TRANSMITTAN ...

  8. ELECTRIALLY-CONDUCTING POLYMERS MODELLED ON BIOPOLYMERS

    SBC: CAMBRIDGE SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WE WILL FOCUS ON THE DESIGN, PREPARATION, AND CHARACTERIZATION OF A SERIES OF ORGANIC POLYMERS WHICH WILL HAVE CONDUCTING CAPABILITIES COMPARABLE TO THOSE OF POLYACETYLENE, AN EXTREMELY CONDUCTIVE, YET UNSTABLE, ORGANIC POLYMER. THESE POLYMERS ARE TO HAVE INHERENT STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES OF ALIGNMENT AND STABILITY MODELLED AFTER NATURALLY OCCURING POLYMERS SUCH AS PROTEINS. UTILIZING INTUITIVE DESIG ...

  9. THERMAL CONDUCTING PLASTICS

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    A NONMETALLIC MATERIAL IS PROPOSED THAT CAN BE USED TO MANUFACTURE COATINGS OR COMPLETE SECTIONS OF HEAT EXCHANGERS WHICH ARE SUBMERGED IN SALTWATER FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME. THE PROPOSED MATERIAL SHOULD BE RESISTANT TO THE SEAWATER EXPOSURE AND AT THE SAME TIME HAVE A THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY EXCEEDING 30 W/M-OC.

  10. HIERARCHICAL DAMAGE TOLERANT CONTROLLERS FOR SMART STRUCTURES

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SMART AEROSPACE STRUCTURE WHICH CAN DETECT AND ISOLATE STRUCTURAL DAMAGE IN REAL-TIME AND PROVIDE ON-LINE RECONFIGURATION OF THE STRUCTURE'S CONTROL SYSTEM UNDER THE DETECTED IMPAIRMENT CONDITIONS WOULD SIGNIFICANTLY BOOST THE RELIABILITY, MAINTAINABILITY AND PERFORMANCE OF CURRENT AND PROPOSED AIR FORCE FLIGHT AND SPACE VEHICLES. HERE, WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE AND DEFINE A SMART AEROSPACE STRU ...
