  4. HYBRID POLYMERIC GLAZING MATERIALS

    SBC: Rolltrusion Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NEW PROCESS IS PROPOSED FOR THE APPLICATION OF POLYMERIC MATERIALS FOR AUTOMOTIVE WINDOWS. SEMI-CRYSTALLINE POLYMERIC MATERIALS CAN BE RENDERED CLEAR THROUGH 3-D ORIENTATION VIA SOLID STATE PROCESSING. APPLYING THIS TECHNOLOGY TO A HYBRID POLYMER STRUCTURE CAN RESULT IN CHEMICALLY RESISTANT, MECHANICALLY STRONG, OPTICALLY CLEAR AND ECONOMICALLY VIABLE PLASTIC WINDOWS FOR GROUND TRANSPORTATION.

  5. Unfurlable Capillary Pumped Loop Space Radiator

    SBC: THERMACORE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE SUCCESS OF FUTURE SPACE MISSIONS IS DEPENDENT ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF ADVACNED RADIATORS. THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A NOVEL, LIGHTWEIGHT, INTERIOR CAPILLARY PUMPED LOOP (CPL) DESIGN THAT CAN BE USED FOR AMBIENT TEMPERATURE HEAT REJECTION. THE HEAT PIPE RADIATING SYSTEM IS EXTREMELY LIGHTWEIGHT DUE TO ITS INTERIOR CPL DESIGN WHICH REQUIRES WICK STRUCTURE ONLY IN THE EVAPORATOR, AND ITS INNOVATIVE M ...

  6. Nacent Hydrogen: An Energy Source

    SBC: THERMACORE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL CONCERNS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NOVEL ENERGY SOURCE FOR SDI APPLICATIONS. HYDROGEN IS USED AS A FUEL; POWER PRODUCING ELECTROLYTIC CELL TECHNOLOGY IS USED FOR THE CATALYTIC PROCESS; ELECTROLYSIS IS NOT REQUIRED. THE RESULT IS A PASSIVE, SELF SUSTAINING NON-ELECTROLYTIC METHOD FOR EXTRACTING ENERGY FROM HYDROGEN. HYDROGEN IS SUPPLIED TO A CATALYST AND ENERGY ID PREDICTED USING THIS PROC ...

  8. POWDER SYSTEM

    SBC: Energy & Minerals Research            Topic: N/A

    TWO YEARS AGO IT WAS EXPERIMENTALLY SHOWN THAT CHARGED WATERDROPLETS COULD KNOCK-DOWN SMOKE RAPIDLY. WE NOW PROPOSE TO TO DEVELOP A DEVICE WHICH USES A CHRGED FINELY POWERED SOLIDAEROSOL TO KNOCK-DOWN SMOKE. USING A SOLID INSTEAD OF A LIQUID AEROSOL HAS SIGNIFICANT ADVANTAGES. THE SOLID PART ICLES CAN BE PRE-FORMED IN A READY-TO-USE STATE. PARTICLE SIZE CAN BE RIGOROUSLY CONTROLLED AND HAVE OPTIMU ...
