  1. 3-D Radiography and Image Analysis of Defect Detection

    SBC: Waterjet Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I of this project, we will investigate the feasibility of adding a "real-time" or "near real-time " stereoscopic imaging capability to the armaments radiographic inspection system already in place at Yuma Proving Ground. We will determine the best way to implement rapid, accurate, and cost-effective automated stereoscopic inspection with minimal modifications to existing equipment. We pro ...

  2. A DAMAGE-ASSESSMENT AND TEMPERATURE-MEASUREMENT SYSTEM SUITABLE FOR THERMO-STRUCTURAL TESTING OF COMPOSITE MATERIALS

    SBC: Waterjet Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    ADVANCED AEROSPACE PROGRAMS REQUIRE MATERIALS CAPABLE OF OPERATING IN TEMPERATURE ENVIRONMENTS EXCEEDING 2000OF. TO ASSESS THE THERMAL AND STRUCTURAL PERFORMANCE OF THESE MATERIALS, TESTING MUST BE PERFORMED AT HIGH TEMPERATURES. NEW TECHNIQUES ARE NEEDED TO MONITOR AND ASSESS MATERIAL PERFORMANCE UNDER THESE TEST CONDITIONS. PROPOSED IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN IMAGING SYSTEM FOR MONITORING THERMO-S ...

  3. A New Class of Highly Oriented Stable Polymer Material for High-Speed Electro-optic Waveguide Devices

    SBC: SIGMA TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A new method is proposed for the development of stable, high speed electro-optic polymers for optical waveguide devices such as switches and couplers. Thin polymer films will be produced by a new process that we refer to as flash evaporation. The process is based on negative electron beam photoresist technology, capable of easily processing thin-film and waveguide structures on various substrates, ...

  4. ACOUSTIC SIGNAL CLASSIFICATION USING UNCONVENTIONAL TECHNIQUES

    SBC: Space Applications Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Advances in active acoustic systems exacerbate the problem of signal classification in a high contact-density environment. Increased contact loading forces the operator to classify contacts more rapidly, reducing his effectiveness. The key to early classification is an understanding of target response in terms of vibrational mode and localization of dominant contributors. Phase I will develop this ...

  6. Advanced Regenerators for Very Low Temperature Cryocoolers

    SBC: General Pneumatics Corp            Topic: N/A

    Proposed is a new concept for high effectiveness regenerative heat exchangers which are critically needed to develop efficient cryocoolers for operation at temperatures of 10K and below. Development of light weight, power efficient, long life cryocoolers capable of providing refrigeration at and below 10K has become a critically-pacing technology for spaceborne instrumentation. The best current 10 ...

  7. Advanced Sensor Simulation and Evaluation Testbed

    SBC: Space Applications Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Space-based remote sensing and surveillance is an important on-going mission for the Air Force. As the development of sensor technology advances, it is crucial that the tools available to the system designer are equal to the task of leveraging the monetary and human resources invested in RDT&E sensor programs. There is a need for a tool to allow the systems designer to identify critical path techn ...

  8. AN ADAPTIVE CONTACT FUZE

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

    CRUSH SENSORS AND PROBES USED IN INEXPENSIVE MISSILES AS CONTACT DEVICES ARE EASILY DAMAGED BY HANDLING OR ANTI-MISSILE DEFENSES. PIEZOELECTRIC ACCELEROMETER CONTACT FUZES WITH FIXED THRESHOLDS HAVE TROUBLE DETECTING A "SOFT" IMPACT WITH AN AIRCRAFT-S ALUMINUM SKIN IN THE PRESENCE OF ACCELERATION NOISE. AN ADAPTIVE CONTACT FUZE IS NEEDED TOSENSE SUCH SOFT IMPACTS IN THE PRESENCE OF ROCKET MOTOR, W ...

  9. An investigation of balloting of projectiles launched from a two-stage light-gas gun

    SBC: Waterjet Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    Projectiles launched at hypervelocities at the ballistic ranges of Arnold Enginering Development Center are subject to extreme loads of over 100,00 g's and occasionally fail. The ultimate material strength, in practice, limits the maximum speed to which the projectile can be launched and still remain intact. It is thought projectiles ballot, or rock back and forth, within the bore and that this co ...

  10. Compact Freon-Free Stirling Refrigeration System

    SBC: General Pneumatics Corp            Topic: N/A

    Research and Development is proposed of a novel form of compact freon-free refrigeration system. The proposed unit operates on the Stirling cycle using air as the working fluid. The refrigeratro has an innovative arrangement of four double-acting pistons which will permit a compact, rugged system of high thermodynamic efficiency fabricated from commonly available materials. Another innovative feat ...
