  1. Electromagnetic Detection of Tornadoes

    SBC: Airborne Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    The ultimate objective of this project is to develop an instrument capable of remote detection and location of tornadoes and/or storms containing tornadoes. There are many reports, both scientific and anecdotal, suggesting that tornadoes and tornadic thunderstorms emit anomalous electromagnetic (EM) radiation-both RF and luminous. This radiation is characterized by unusually high rates of EM pulse ...

  2. A Ruggedized System for Measuring Extreme Winds

    SBC: Caregiver Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop technology, termed a Ruggedized Wind Measurement System (RWMS), to measure directly extreme winds with high space and time resolution, focusing on the winds that occur beneath hurricanes at land fall. This development effort will include design, fabrication of two prototype RWMS units, and a series of proof-of-concept demonstrations in strong mountain-induced downslope and severe t ...

  3. Optical Water Level Sensor

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    Development of an optical water level sensor is proposed to solve some of the problems and limitations of current sounding tube/protective well acoustic sensors. By using light instead of sound, temperature gradient effects on the measurement are obviated. Furthermore, the proposed system eliminates the need for a sounding tube, protective well and associated temperature sensors, and does not requ ...

  4. Omni-Directional Cloud Height Indicator

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research will develop the specifications and design of a ceilometer capable of scanning in three dimensions to detect clouds within a range of 75,000 feet (about 15 miles). The final design will be based upon the Vaisala CT-75k ceilometer which has a nominal range of 75,000 feet. As a proof-of- concept, the proposed research effort will use the Vaisala CT-25k (which has a nominal rang ...

  5. A Stationary Spectrometer for Determining Flame Structure

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OPTRA is proposing the development of an all-reflecting stationary Fourier transform spectrometer, based on the use of Fresnel mirrors and a linear uncooled amorphous silicon microbolometer array to produce spectra in the 1 to 5 micron region with resolution of 5nm. Concentration, temperature and soot volume fraction will be derived from the measured emission spectra of a flame. An amorphous silic ...

  6. Characterization of Metastable Beam Sources

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a 6 month program during which we will develop and demonstrate an approach for generating well-characterized atomic and molecular beams of metastable species. Such beam sources are necessary for the microelectronics and plasma processing industries because they would provide a valuable tool required to establish a solid database of plasma-related collision processes. This improved and e ...

  7. Improved and Tuanble Infrared Rugate Filters

    SBC: RUGATE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Rugate Technologies, Incorporated, proposes to develop improved narrow notch and tunable Rugate filters for the infrared. Four problems are addressed in this study: (1) identification of Rugate material pairs for use in the far infrared (out to 30 microns); (2) development of polarization and non-polarization sensitive narrow notch filters, as well as control of sensitivity to incidence angle; (3) ...

  8. Stable Filterless Solar-Blind UV Photodiodes Based on Silicon

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The proposed program will investigate fabrication of low-cost and stable Si- based filterless solar-blind UV detectors on radiation-hard silicon-on-insulator (SOI) structures. By fabricating detectors on silicon thin films, the active device layer thickness can be chosen so that shortwave photons are detected within the active layer, while the longer wavelengths are absorbed in a substrate which i ...

  9. Development of A1203 Detector Material and OSL Dosimetric Technique for

    SBC: Stillwater Sciences, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes a new research program to be established at the small business Still Sciences, LLC, in collaboration with Department of Physics of Oklahoma State University. The overall goal is to develop and commercialize an all-optical dosimetry system for industrial radiation processing based on a novel Pulsed Optically Stimulated Luminescence readout technique and a new Al2O3 material ...

  10. Thermal Stability Enhancement of JP-5

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Additive technology has been developed which will extend the operating temperature of common aviation fuels like JP-5. However, the currently available additive packages cannot extend the operating temperature high enough to meet the anticipated requirements of future gas turbine engine designs. In addition, these additive packages usually deteriorate other performance properties of the fu ...
