  3. AIRCRAFT WHEEL USAGE INDICATOR SYSTEMS

    SBC: Lisi Engineering & Development            Topic: N/A

    PROPOSAL FOR UTILIZING SOLID STATE PIEZO-RESISTIVE SENSORS TO MEASURE AND RECORD CUMULATIVE WHEEL ROTATIONS. WHEEL ROTATION IS SENSED BY EXPLOITING THE FORCE DUE TO NORMAL (CENTRIPETAL) ACCELERATION, WHICH IS A FUNCTION OF THE ROTATIONAL SPEED SQUARED. THE ELECTRONIC PACKAGE IS SMALL (INCORPORATING SMT) AND CONSISTS MAINLY OF THE SENSOR AND A MOTOROLA F68HC11 MICROPROCESSOR. THE MICROPROCESSOR IS ...

  4. ALUMINUM-GALLIUM-ARSENIDE TOP SOLAR CELL FOR MECHANICAL ATTACHMENT TO A SILICON CONCENTRATOR WITH IMPROVED AMO EFFICIENCY

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    INCREASES IN SOLAR CELL EFFICIENCY CAN BE ACHIEVED WITH TANDEM MULTI-JUNCTION STRUCTURES TO IMPROVE THE PERFORMANCE AND SCALE OF SPACE PHOTOVOLTAIC CONCENTRATORS. THE "TOP SOLAR CELL" TANDEM APPROACH COULD INCREASE ENERGY CONVERSION EFFICIENCY BY AS MUCH AS 100%. A SELF-SUPPORTING ALUMINUM-GALLIUM-ARSENIDE (ALGAAS) TOP SOLAR CELL IS BEING DEVELOPED FOR MECHANICAL ATTACHMENT TO A SILICON CONCENTRAT ...

  8. FATIGUE EFFECTS OF THERMOPLASTIC HELICOPTER COMPONENTS WITH EMBEDDED DELAMINATIONS

    SBC: Simula, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF THERMOPLASTIC MATERIALS IN ROTOR COMPONENTS MAY SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE THE PROBLEM OF DELAMINATIONS AND INCREASE FATIGUE LIFE. HOWEVER, LITTLE IS KNOWN OF THE EFFECT THAT MANUFACTURING FLAWS, IMPURITIES, AND VOIDS HAVE ON ROTOR THERMOPLASTIC COMPONENTS STRENGTH AND STIFFNESS AFTER AN EXTENDED NUMBER OF FLIGHT HOURS. TWO MAIN OBJECTIVES ARE PROPOSED: (1) IDENTIFICATION OF CANDIDATE ROTOR C ...

  9. GROWTH OF GALLIUM ARSENIDE EPITAXIAL FILMS BY INDIRECT PLASMA ENHANCED LOW PRESSURE METAL ORGANIC CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION

    SBC: Xacton Corp            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS AIMED AT TESTING THE FEASIBILITY OF A NEW AND INNOVATIVE IDEA FOR THE PRODUCTION OF LAYERED SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICE STRUCTURES, SUCH AS GALLIUM ARSENIDE-GALLIUM ALUMINUM ARSENIDE. THE EPITAXIAL GROWTH WILL BE DONE BY THE PROCESS OF INDIRECT PLASMA ENHANCED LOW PRESSURE METAL ORGANIX CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A MAGNETIC FIELD APPLIED TO THE GROWING LAYER. IT IS ...

  10. HIGH TEMPERATURE SURVIVABLE CONTACTS FOR GALLIUM ARSENIDE SPACE SOLAR CELLS

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    EXISTING METALLIC-TYPE CONTACTS ON GALLIUM ARSENIDE (GAAS) HAVE NOT BEEN STABLE AT HIGH TEMPERATURES BECAUSE OF INTERDIFFUSION AND/OR ALLOYING OF THE GAAS TOP LAYER. HIGH TEMPERATURE CONTACTS TO GAAS SPACE PHOTOLTAIC CELLS ARE BEING DEVELOPED BASED ON THE FORMATION OF A HIGHLY-STABLE INTERMEDIATE DEGENERATE SEMICONDUCTOR LAYER BETWEEN THE GAAS AND A HIGH TEMPERATURE METAL ALLOY. THE INTERMEDIATE S ...
