  1. LIGHTWEIGHT, LIGHT-TRAPPED, THIN GAAS SOLAR CELL FOR SPACECRAFT APPLICATIONS

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ASTROPOWER IS PROPOSING THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN ULTRA-LIGHTWEIGHT, HIGH PERFORMANCE, THIN LIGHT TRAPPING GAAS SOLAR CELL FOR ADVANCED SPACE POWER SYSTEMS. A THIN DEVICE LEADS TO HIGHER PERFORMANCE IN TERMS OF OPEN CIRCUIT VOLTAGE, RADIATION RESISTANCE, AND SPECIFIC POWER. IN A THIN DEVICE, THE INCORPORATION OF LIGHT TRAPPING TO EXTEND THE OPTICAL PATH LENGTH PERMITS GREATER CURRENT GENERATIC THAN CA ...

  2. EFFECTS OF SOLID-MECHANIC PROPERTIES OF ENERGETIC MATERIALS ON MUNITION SENSITIVITY

    SBC: Dyna East Corp.            Topic: N/A

    TRADITIONALLY, THE DETONATION HAS BEEN TREATED BY THE SHOCK THEORY, AND EXPLOSIVES AND PROPELLANTS HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED AS ENERGETIC FLUIDS. MANY SOLID PROPERTIES HAVE NOT BEEN MEASURED AND ARE NOT AVAILABLE FROM THE HANDBOOKS. RECENT RESULTS IN MUNITION SENSITIVITY STUDIES SHOW THAT SHEARING IS ONE OF THE MAIN MECHANISMS IN CAUSING DETONATION, AND IS CONTROLLED BY CERTAIN SOLID PROPERTIES. IN THE ...

  3. COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN & SYNTHESIS SYSTEM FOR ELECTRONIC SYSTEM DESIGN

    SBC: Omniview Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A RAPIDLY GROWING NEED FOR TOOLS FOR THE DESIGN AND SYNTHESISOF ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS AND MULTI-DEVICE CIRCUITS: TO SUPPORT GREATER CLOCK SPEEDS; PACKAGING DENSITITES AND CIRCUIT COMPLEXITY; TO ENABLE DESIGNERS TO RAPIDLY CREATE AND COMPARE ALTERNATIVE DESIGN CONCEPTS; TO ELIMINATE MULTIPLE RE-DESIGN CYCLES; AND TO ENABLE REUSE OF PRIOR DESIGN KNOWLEDGE. THERE ARE NO CAE TOOLS COMMERCIALLY A ...

  4. OPTIMIZATION OF INGAAS/INALAS/INP EOIC STRUCTURES: AN MBE MATERIAL PARAMETER STUDY

    SBC: Quantum Epitaxial Designs,            Topic: N/A

    PHASE I OF THIS PROGRAM WILL OPTIMIZE THE GROWTH OF LATTICE MATCHED INGAAS/INALAS ON INP FOR EOIC APPLICATIONS THROUGH THE USE ON INNOVATIVE MOLECULAR BEAM EPITAXIAL (MBE) GROWTH AND CALIBRATION PROCEDURES. THE PROGRAM WILL STUDY THE EFFECTS OF SLIGHT LATTICE MISMATCH ON THICK EPITAXIAL LAYERS. THE PROGRAM WILL DEVELOP A MORE ACCURATE MEANS OF SETTING THE MOLECULAR BEAM RATIOS AS WELL AS NOVEL, EA ...

  5. ANTIMULTIPATH SYSTEM FOR MEASUREMENT OF ULTRALOW SIDELOBE ANTENNA PATTERNS

    SBC: ZEGER-ABRAMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL TECHNIQUE IS PROPOSED WHICH WILL ALLOW THE RESOLUTION, ANALYSIS, AND SUPPRESSION OF THE MULTIPATH COMPONENTS OF AN ANTENNA RANGE MEASUREMENT TEST SIGNAL% THE TECHNIQUE ACHIEVES TIME DELAY RESOLUTION MUCH FINER THAN THE RECIPROCAL OF THE BANDWIDTH OF THE TEST SIGNAL* AS A RESULT, ULTRA LOW SIDELOBE ANTENNA MEASUREMENTS CAN BE MADE IN REAL TIME WITHOUT USING AN ULTRA WIDEBAND TEST SIGNAL AND ...

  6. ADVANCED HEAT SHIELD MATERIALS

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES THE EFFORTS REQUIRED TO STUDY THE EFFECTS OF VARIOUS MATERIALS ON THE REDUCTION OF ELECTRONIC INTERFACE IN THE PLASMA OF A RE-ENTRY VEHICLE HEAT SHIELD. A FUNDEMENTAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE MECHANISM BY MEANS OF WHICH THESE MATERIALS ACHIEVE A REDUCTION IN ELECTRONIC INTERFERENCE IS THE GOAL OF THE PROPOSED INVESTIGATIONS, IN WHICH THE GSI FLAME TEST APPARATUS IS USED TO DETE ...
