  1. ANNULAR FLOW ELECTROTHERMAL PLUG RAMJET INVESTIGATION AS A HYPERVELOCITY PROJECTILE LAUNCHER

    SBC: SRS Technologies            Topic: N/A

    A NEW SYSTEM, THE ANNULAR FLOW ELECTROTHERMAL PLUG RAMJET, IS PROPOSED AS A ALTERNATIVE TO CHEMICAL ROCKETS AND ELECTROMAGNETIC LAUNCHERS AS A KINETIC ENERGY WEAPON. THIS SYSTEM APPEARS TO BE CAPABLE OF ACHIEVING THE HYPERVELOCITIES NECESSARY IN REASONABLE LAUNCHER LENGTHS, PRIMARILY BECAUSE IT DOES NOT ACCELERATE EITHER THE PROPELLANT OR THE PROPULSION SYSTEM REQUIRED TO ACHIEVE HYPERVELOCITIES. ...

  2. ANTI-SIMULATION FOR PENETRATION AIDS

    SBC: Nichols Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL EXAMINE THE ANTI-SIMULATION TACTIC BOTH FROM THE STANDPOINT OF THE OFFENSE AND FROM THAT OF THE DEFENSE. THE OFFENSE POINT OF VIEW INCLUDES DETERMINING THE SIGNATURE FEATURES THAT THE ANTI-SIMULATION TACTIC ATTEMPTS TO DISGUISE AND THE DEGREE TO WHICH THESE FEATURES CAN BE MODIFIED BY PRACTICAL ALTERATIONS OF BOTH THE RV AND THE DECOY. THIS PORTION OF THE RESEARCH WILL A ...

  3. DYNAMIC BORESIGHT MENSURATION

    SBC: Lsi Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A TECHNIQUE IS PROPOSED WHEREBY THE BORESIGHT ALIGNMENT BETWEEN A HELICOPTER MISSILE OR ROCKET LAUNCH SUPPORT STRUCTURE AND THE REFERENCE SYSTEM CAN BED DETERMINED IN THREE AXES. THE TECHNIQUE EMPLOYS NEWLY-DEVELOPED FAST SCANNING ELECTRO-OPTICAL SENSORS AND FAST SPECIALMICROPROCESSOR SUBSYSTEMS. THE WORKPLAN INCLUDES DESIGN AND EVALUATION OF THE APPROPRIATE ALGORITHMS, SCALED EXPERIMENTS USING A ...

  5. KINETIC ENERGY PROJECTILE LETHALITY ENHANCEMENT

    SBC: Nichols Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    A FEASIBILITY STUDY IS PROPOSED ON A NOVEL IDEA FOR A DESIGN OF A SEMI-SMART PROJECTILE FOR KINETIC ENERGY WEAPONS, AND IN PARTICULAR, EML WEAPONS. THE TECHNOLOGY FOR THIS DESIGN IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. IT WOULD BE INTRINSICALLY HARD TO THE 100000 G ACCELERATIONS EXPERIENCE BY AN EML PROJECTILE AND WOULD HAVE A GREATLY IMPROVED PROBABILITY OF HIT (AND KILL) OVER A CLASSICAL DUMB PROJECTILE AGAINST ...

  6. LOW-COST INDICATOR AND DOSIMETER FOR WARFARE GASES

    SBC: Coal Gas Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO CONDUCT PRELIMINARY TESTS ON A NOVEL CHEMISTRY WHICH COULD RESULT IN THE PRODUCTION OF A LOW COST WAFER WHICH CHANGES COLOR UPON EXPOSURE TO WARFARE GASES (WG). SIMILAR WAFERS WHICH WE DEVELOPED FOR OTHER GASES ARE ABOUT 2" X 1" X 1/16" AND WEIGH ABOUT 2.3 GM. THESE CHROMOSENSE (TM) WAFERS CAN DETECT HYDROGEN SULFIDE, ETC. IN 10-30 SEC. AT CONCENTRATIONS OF THE ...

  9. THIN FILM CREEP-FORMING FOR SOLAR PROPULSION APPLICATIONS REQUIREMENTS

    SBC: SRS Technologies            Topic: N/A

    THE HIGH PERFORMANCE POTENTIAL OF COMPOSITE PROPULSION SYSTEMS MAKE THEM ATTRACTIVE FOR WINGED HORIZONTAL TAKE-OFF BOOSTER AND SINGLE STAGE TO ORBIT LAUNCH VEHICLES. NUMEROUS TYPES OF SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN PROPOSED, RESEARCHED, ANALYZED, AND TESTED. THE OVERALL OBJECTIVE OF THIS EFFORT IS A CRITICAL EXAMINATION OF PAST STUDIES AND ANALYSES TO IDENTIFY PROMISING CONCEPTS FOR TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT FOR ...

  10. WET TURBOEXPANDER FOR CRYOCOOLERS OF SPACEBORNE SURVEILLANCE SENSORS

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE NEED FOR INCREASING THE SENSITIVITY OF SPACE-BORNE SENSORS WILL REQUIRE DEVELOPMENT OF LONG-LIFE, HIGHLY EFFICIENT HELIUM LIQUIFIERS. CONVENTIONAL HELIUM LIQUIFIERS EMPLOY A JOULE-THOMSON EXPANSION VALVE TO EXPAND THE HELIUM AT TEMPERATURES BELOW ABOUT 10 DEG K. IT HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT GAINS OF UP TO 30% IN OVERALL CYCLE EFFICIENCY CAN BE OBTAINED IF THE JOULE-THOMSON VALVE IS REPLACED BY AN EX ...
