  3. DIGITAL INFRA-RED EYE COMMAND TRANSDUCER

    SBC: Energy Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH TECHNOLOGY IS ADVANCING AT AN EVER INCREASING PACE,ITS APPLICATION FOR USE BY HANDICAPPED INDIVIDUALS HAS BEEN SLOW. SEVERELY IMPAIRED INDIVIDUALS OFTEN REQUIRE SOME TYPE OF "HIGH TECHNOLOGY" MEANS TO ENABLE THEM TO HAVE A DEGREE OF MOBILITY. THE SPECIFIC AIM OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO INVESTIGATE THE POTENTIAL OF USING ELECTRO-OPTICS AS A MEANS FOR THE HANDICAPPED TO EFFECT CONTROL OF HIS/HER ...

  4. WIND AND ENERGY BUDGET MEASUREMENT SYSTEM FOR DESERT TERRAIN

    SBC: American Minority            Topic: N/A

    A MICROCLIMATOLOGICAL WEATHER STATION DESIGN IS PROPOSED WHICH INCORPORATES RESEARCH QUALITY INSTRUMENTS CAPABLE OF MEASURING HEAT FLUXES DIRECTLY. RECENT TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES HAVE ENABLED THESE INSTRUMENTS TO OPERATE IN REMOTE, LOW POWER, UNATTENDED APPLICATIONS. ULTRASONIC TECHNOLOGY IS USED TO MEASURE SENSIBLE AND LATENT HEAT FLUXES USING THE EDDY CORRELATION METHOD. THE WEATHER STATION IS DE ...

  5. VIBRATORY AGING AND STRESS RELIEF (VASR) FOR A7005 ALUMINUM WELDS

    SBC: Applied Fusion Technologies            Topic: N/A

    THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP A METHOD THAT WILL IMPROVE BOTH THE RELIABILITY AND PREDICTABILITY OF WELDING AGE HARDENING ALUMINUM ALLOYS. THIS MAY BE ACCOMPLISHED BY USING AN IMPROVED VASR (VIBRATORY AGING AND STRESS RELIEF) SYSTEM, SQUARE WAVE PULSED ARC WELDING, AND POSSIBLY A COMBINATION OF BOTH TECHNIQUES. VASR TECHNIQUES INCLUDE TESTING IN BOTH THE SUBRESONANT AND RESO ...

  6. VARIATIONAL EVALUATION OF EM COUPLING TO A WIRE INSIDE A CAVITY

    SBC: Applied Physics Technologies            Topic: N/A

    CONTRACTOR WILL DEVELOP A LAGRANGIAN FORMULATION FOR THE ELECTROMAGNETIC RESPONSE OF A METALLIC ENCLOSURE WITH THIN, SLIGHTLY DIFFUSIVE WALLS AND A WIRE SPANNING THE ENCLOSURE. CONTRACTOR WILL FIRST DERIVE A LAGRANGIAN OPERATOR ON THE FIELDS WHICH IS STATIONARY WHEN MAXWELL'S EQUATIONS ARE SATISFIED. THE LAGRANGIAN WILL THEN BE USED TO DETERMINE THE ENCLOSURE EIGENMODES (WIRE INCLUDED) AND THE AMP ...

  7. EMP ENVIRONMENT PREDICTION FOR COLLIMATED SOURCES

    SBC: Applied Physics Technologies            Topic: N/A

    CODES CURRENTLY EXIST THAT WILL CALCULATE THE ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENT (EMP) PRODUCED BY A BEAM OF COLLIMATED GAMMA RAYS. THE COLLIMATION MAY BE EITHER CYLINDRICAL OR CONICAL. THE CURRENT EFFORT WILL BE TO INSTALL THE CODES ON AN ARMY CRAY COMPUTER AND TO SET THEM UP AND RUN THEM FOR PROBLEMS OF INTEREST TO THE ARMY.

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH RANGE PARTICLE VELOCITY GAGE

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS AN ESTABLISHED NEED FOR A SIMPLE ROBUST TRANSDUCER TO MEASURE PARTICLE VELOCITY IN SEVERE BLAST AND SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS SUCH AS NUCLEAR AND HIGH EXPLOSIVE TESTS. A GAGE CONCEPT IS PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPMENT, BASED ON THE PROVEN MEASUREMENT PRINCIPLES USED IN THE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL DX GAGE, BUT RECONFIGURED MECHANICALLY AND ELECTRICALLY TO WITHSTAND THE HARSH SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS. THE CONCEPT RE ...
