  1. A LOW ENERGY FLYING PLATE DETONATOR

    SBC: SILICON DESIGNS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE SAFETY OF THE FLYING PLATE DETONATOR IS KEY TO ITS USE IN IN-LINE FUZES. THE MAIN ADVANTAGE OF THE FLYING PLATE DETONATOR IS ONE OF ITS ADVANTAGES FROM A SAFETY VIEWPOINT; A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF ELECTRICAL ENERGY, ON THE ORDER OF A JOULE, MUST BE DELIVERED TO THE BRIDGE IN LESS THAN A MICROSECOND BEFORE THE UNIT WILL FIRE. THE FLYING PLATE DETONATOR, HOWEVER, HAS CHANGED LITTLE SINCE ITS ORIG ...

  2. A PLASMA ASSIST CVD PROCESS FOR PRODUCING TIB(2) AND OTHER CERAMIC MULTIFILAMENT TOWS

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

    THERE IS A VERY LARGE PENT-UP DEMAND FOR ADVANCED HIGH PERFORMANCE HIGH TEMPERATURE INTERMETALLIC COMPOSITES WHICH IS LIMITED BY THE AVAILABILITY OF AN ECONOMICAL SMALL DIAMETER CERAMIC FIBER WITH GOOD STRENGTH RETENTION > OR - 1400 DEG C. COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE CERAMIC FIBERS PRODUCED AS MONOFILAMENT BY CVD OR PYROLYSIS OF POLYMER PRECURSOR HAVE ONE OR MORE FAULTS OF POOR STRENGTH RETENTION ABOVE ...

  3. A PRESSURE AND TEMPERATURE TRANSDUCER FOR 700-MPA EXPLOSIVE ENVIRONMENTS- DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A HIGH-ACCURACY, HIGHRANGE PRESSURE AND TEMPERATURE TRANSDUCER FOR THE MEASUREMENT OF RAPID TRANSIENTS TO 700 MPA AND TEMPERATURES TO 3000 K, AS WELL AS HEAT TRANSFER, IN GUN INTERIORS. ALL THREE MEASURING FUNCTIONS WILL BE PERFORMED BY ONE SMALL (ABOUT 20 MM IN DIAMENTER) SENSOR UNIT AND SOME EXTERNAL TEMPERATURE SENSORS. THE PRESSURE IS DETECTED BY CA ...

  4. A RELIABLE SOLID-STATE MAGNETIC SENSOR

    SBC: SILICON DESIGNS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE FLUXGATE MAGNETOMETER HAS EVOLVED OF THE LAST 50 YEARS INTO A SENSITIVE DEVICE USED IN STRAPDOWN MAGNETIC COMPASSES. HOWEVER, THE FLUXGATE MAGNETOMETER IS RELATIVELY COMPLEX, REQUIRING A LARGE NUMBER OF PARTS, INCLUDING FERROMAGNETICS. ITS RELIABILITY MAKES IT LESS DESIRABLE FOR USE IN FUTURE MAGNETIC COMPASSES. PROBLEMS WITH THE FERROMAGNETICS INCLUDE RELATIVELY LARGE SENSITIVITY TO TEMPERATU ...

  5. BALLISTIC RANGE/TRACK ALIGNMENT DIAGNOSTICS

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN AUTOMATED ALIGNMENT MEASURING SYSTEM FOR THE HYPERVELOCITY RANGE/TRACK G FACILITY, LOCATED AT ARNOLD ENGINEERING DEVELOPMENT CENTER. THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT EFFORT ARE TO EVALUATE METHODS FOR DEVELOPING A SYSTEM THAT CAN RAPIDLY AND COST-EFFECTIVELY INSPECT THE TEST TRACK. THIS WILL REQUIRE AN IN-DEPTH UNDERSTANDING OF THE ENVIR ...

  6. BASEBAND/BROADBAND FAULT TOLERANT FIBER OPTIC LOCAL AREA NETWORK FOR SAFENET SHIPBOARD COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS

    SBC: Phoenix Digital Corpon            Topic: N/A

    A FIBER OPTIC LOCAL AREA NETWORK (LAN) DEVELOPMENT PROJECT IS PROPOSED TO PROVIDE FAULT TOLERANT, SECURE SHIPBOARD COMMUNICATIONS. THE LAN WILL UTILIZE PHOENIX DIGITAL'S FAULT TOLERANT, "SELF-HEALING" FIBER OPTIC COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGY, IN CONJUNCTION WITH GTE'S BIREFRINGENT WAVELENGTH DIVISION MULTIPLEXER (BWDM) TECHNOLOGY. THE BWDM ALLOWS MULTIPLE OPTICAL COMMUNICATION CHANNELS IN A SPECIFIC ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF A MATHEMATICAL CODE TO PREDICT THERMAL DEGRADATION OF FUEL AND DEPOSIT FORMATION IN A FUEL SYSTEM

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    IT HAS BEEN OBSERVED IN BOTH SMALL-SCALE EXPERIMENTS AND FULL-SCALE FUEL SYSTEM SIMULATORS THAT JET FUELS, WHEN HEATED, UNDERGO CHEMICAL REACTIONS THAT EVENTUALLY RESULT IN SEDIMENT/DEPOSIT FORMATION. THUS, THE THERMAL STABILITY OF JET FUELS HAS THE DELETERIOUS EFFECT OF CAUSING FUEL SYSTEM MALFUNCTIONS. THIS SITUATION IS ALSO POSSIBLE IN SUPERSONIC AIRCRAFT, WHERE AN INCREASE IN THE METAL SKIN TE ...

  9. DEVELOPMENT OF A RECLINED CRASHWORTHY CREWSEAT

    SBC: Simula, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY OF MODIFYING CRASHWORTHY CREWSEAT DESIGNS TO ACCOMMODATE A RECLINED SEAT BACK COMPATIBLE WITH FUTURE LOW-PROFILE MILITARY AIRCRAFT WILL BE EXPLORED. A PARAMETRIC STUDY WILL BE CONDUCTED, CONSIDERING A MATRIX OF SEAT BACK ANGLES, SEAT PAN ANGLES, AND SEAT STROKE ANGLES. COMPUTER PROGRAM SOM-LA (SEAT/OCCUPANT MODEL - LIGHT AIRCRAFT), WHICH MODELS THE DYNAMIC RESPONSE OF THE SEAT OCCU ...

  10. DEVELOPMENT OF A SCANNING PULSED DIODE LASER DOPPLER VELOCIMETER FOR FLOW MEASUREMENTS IN COASTAL AND MARINE ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    A SCANNING, PULSED DIODE LASER DOPPLER VELOCIMETER (DLDV/SP) WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR FLOW MEASUREMENTS IN AIR AND WATER, PARTICULARY COASTAL WATERS AND THE MARINE ATMOSPHERIC BOUNDARY LAYER. THE DLDV/SP, BASED ON A FIELD-PROVEN DLDV FOR OCEAN DEPLOYMENT UNDER ICE FLOWS, WILL BE DESIGNED FOR ON-AXIS BACKSCATTER OPERATION. IN A PULSED MODE, THE DIODE LASER WILL GENERATE INSTANTANEOUS LASER POWER IN TH ...
