  1. ON-LINE PROCESS CONTROL SENSOR FOR PARTICLE SIZE

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

    A PARTICLE SIZE SENSOR IS REQUIRED FOR ON-LINE PROCESS CON- TROL IN A METAL POWDER FORMING FACILITY. INSTRUMENTS AVAILABLE COMMERCIALLY FOR THIS SENSING RELY ON MEASUREMENTS OF LIGHT SCATTERING AT VERY SMALL ANGULAR INCREMENTS. IT IS PROBABLE THAT THE HIGHLY TURBULENT ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH THE METAL POWDERS ARE FORMED WILL PRODUCE SUFFICIENT ANGULAR DE-VIATION OF THE PROBING LIGHT BEAM TO INVALIDAT ...

  2. Acoustic Propagation Analysis Program for Marine Scientists

    SBC: APPLIED MATHEMATICS INC            Topic: 819

    People who work in the marine sciences field often need to analyze the transmission of sound through the ocean. Today, there are more than 60 different propagation loss models available; no single model is the best in all cases. Choosing the appropriate model, as well as the necessary input data to the model can be a daunting task. In this proposal, we discuss an approach to designing a compute ...

  3. A Miniatruized Carbon Dioxide Detector

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 819S

    NOAA supports over 25,000 underwater dive programs per year. To increase the duration and depth of these dives, the use of closed circuit mixed gas rebreathers (CCRs) is being considered. As there currently are no sensors to detect CO2 levels in the breathing gas, Giner, Inc. proposes to develop an electrochemical CO2 sensor for CCR use. The technical innovation will be to develop a reversible ...

  5. MILLIMETER WAVE ANTENNA

    SBC: Millitech Corp.            Topic: N/A

    MILLITECH PROPOSES TO DESIGN A COMPACT OFFSET CASSEGRAIN ANTENNA SYSTEM TO BE USED AT A WAVELENGTH OF 8 MM FOR CLOUD RESEARCH. THE SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED TO GIVE THE LOWSIDELOBE LEVELS CHARACTERISTIC OF AN OFFSET REFLECTOR WHILE GIVING POLARIZATION ISOLATION BETTER THAN 20 DB. THE TRADE-OFF BETWEEN HIGH POLARIZATION ISOLATION AND COMPACT SIZE WILL BE RESOLVED BY USING A GAUSSIAN OPTICS LENS ANTEN ...
