  1. DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING PLAN FOR A COMPOSITE LOW ALTITUDE DISPENSER (LAD)

    SBC: Advanced Composite Products            Topic: N/A

    COMPOSITE MATERIALS SUCH AS GRAPHIT/EPOXY AND KEVLAR/EPOXY OFFER THE POTENTIAL TO REDUCE WEIGHT, RADAR CROSS SECTION (RCS), AND MANUFACTURED COSTS IN FLIGHT VEHCILE STRUCTURES. THIS PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO APPLY THESE BENEFITS TO AFAL'S LOW ALTITUDE DISPENSER (LAD). AT THE SAME TIME THE CURRENT 11" PAYLOAD BAY WOULD BE INCREASED TO 12" TO INCREASE PAYLOAD VOLUME AND EFFICIENT MUNITIONS PACKING. AFT ...

  3. NONEQUILIBRIUM BOUNDARY LAYER COMPUTER CODE FOR REENTRY VEHICLES

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A COMPUTER CODE WILL BE DEVELOPED TO PROVIDE TWO-DIMENSIONAL NONEQUILIBRIUM SOLUTIONS FOR REENTRY VEHICLE BOUNDARY LAYERS, WITH EMPHASIS ON PREDICTION OF THE ELECTRON DENSITY. A BLOCK IMPLICIT TECHNIQUE WILL BE IMPLEMENTED FOR RELIABLE, STABLE SOLUTION OF THE CHEMICAL KINETIC RATE EQUATIONS AT ALL REENTRY ALTITUDES. THE CODE WILL BE CAPABLE OF HANDLING A WIDE VARIETY OF CHEMICAL SYSTEMS (AIR, HYDR ...

  4. IMPROVED GEL ELECTROPHORESIS SYSTEM FOR MEDICAL RESEARCH

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    GEL ELECTROPHORESIS IS ONE OF THE MOST WIDELY USED ANALYTICAL TECHNIQUES IN MOLECULAR BIOLOGY AND GENETICS. TYPICALLY THE SEPARATION REQUIRES SEVERAL HOURS AND THE GEL IS THEN REMOVED AND ANALYZED FOR THE LOCATION OF THE DIFFERENT MOLECULAR GROUPS ON THE SURFACE AREA OF THE GEL. WHEN USED WITH RADIOISOTOPES AS LABELS, THE STANDARD PRACTICE IS TO REMOVE THE GEL AND USE IT TO EXPOSE FILM OVER 24-48 ...

  5. CATHETER-MOUNTED GAS SENSOR

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN ELECTROCHEMICAL, CATHETER-MOUNTED GAS SENSOR IS PROPOSED FOR CONCURRENT AND INDEPENDENT MEASUREMENTS OF PCO(2) AND PO(2) IN BLOOD. THIS SENSOR WILL ALSO BE INVESTIGATED FOR THE SIMULTANEOUS MEASUREMENT OF PN(2)O. THE CO(2) AND O(2) MEASUREMES WILL BE OF INTEREST FOR VENTILATION MANAGEMENT, ACID-BASE BALANCE AND BASIC RESEARCH, WHILE A SENSOR WITH CAPABILITY FOR N(2)O SENSING COULD BE VERY HELPF ...

  6. IMPLANTABLE GLUCOSE SENSOR

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO IMPROVE THE SENSITIVITY AND SELECTIVITY OF A CATALYTIC METAL ELECTRODE FOR DETERMINING GLUCOSE IN BIOLOGICAL FLUIDS. SUCH IMPROVEMENTS COULD LEAD TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN IMPLANTABLE GLUCOSE SENSOR THAT COULD PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES FOR A MUCH GREATER DEGREE OF CONTROL OF GLUCOSE LEVELS IN DIABETICS THAN IS NOW POSSIBLE. SUCH CONTROL WOULD PROVIDE IMPROVE ...

  7. IMPROVED WEAR RESISTANCE OF IMPLANT TITANIUM ALLOY BY ION IMPLANTATION

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    TITANIUM ALLOYS OFFER SUPERIOR CORROSION RESISTANCE, MECHANICAL STRENGTH, LOWER ELASTIC MODULUS AND SPECIFIC WEIGHT, AND BIOCOMPATIBILITY. THE LOWER WEAR/ABRASION TOLERANCE OF TITANIUM, HOWEVER, HAS HAMPERED ITS FULL SCALE APPLICATION IN ORTHOPAEDIC SURGERY. FOR LONG TERM RELIABILITY OF THE TITANIUM IMPLANT, THE WEAR CHARACTERISTIC OF THE ALLOY MUST BE MODIFIED. ADVANCES IN THE TECHNOLOGY AND META ...

  8. WEAR RESISTANT FERROUS METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES FOR MSW PROCESSORS

    SBC: Waste Energy Technology            Topic: N/A

    NEW MATERIALS ARE NEEDED FOR THE SOLID WASTE PROCESSING INDUSTRY WHICH WILL PROVIDE IMPROVED EROSION AND CORROSION RESISTANCE. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO DETERMINE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF PRODUCING FERROUS METAL/CERAMIC COMPOSITES BY HIGH-TECHNOLOGY, DIRECT CASTING METHODS--TERMED RHEOCASTING AND COMPOCASTING. THE RESULTING MATERIAL IS EXPECTED TO COMBINE THE STRENGTH AND IM ...

  9. PORTABLE RCBF SYSTEM FOR REAL TIME DIAGNOSTICS

    SBC: Cerebral Monitoring Systems/            Topic: N/A

    REGIONAL CEREBRAL BLOOD FLOW (RCBF) IS AN IMPORTANT PARAMETER OF BRAIN FUNCTION IN ACUTELY AND CHRONICALLY ILL PATIENTS. INSTRUMENTS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR MEASUREMENT OF RCBF ARE LARGE, IMMOBILE AND LACK THE FLEXIBILITY AND UTILITY REQUIRED TO STUDY RCBF IN MULTIPLE SITUATIONS SUCH AS THE OPERATING ROOM AND OUTPATIENT SERVICES. WE PROPOSE TO SPLIT THE PROCESS OF RCBF MEASUREMENT INTO A PORTABLE ...

  10. RADWASTE DISPOSAL DRUM CENTRIFUGE

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT METHODS FOR PREPARING THE NUCLEAR POWER INDUSTRIES LOW LEVEL SPENT RESIN RADWASTE FOR BURIAL DISPOSAL HAVE CREATED A PROBLEM IN TERMS OF LARGE WASTE VOLUME AND INABILITY TO MEET FEDERAL REGULATIONS CONTROLLING WASTE CHARACTERISTICS. FOSTER-MILLER, INC. HAS CONCEIVED A NOVEL CENTRIFUGAL TECHNIQUE FOR SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCING THE RADWASTE VOLUME AND ASSOCIATED DISPOSAL COST WHILE PRODUCING A W ...
