  2. PERSONAL DIGITAL NEUTRON DOSIMETER

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

    OVER A HUNDRED THOUSAND NAVY PERSONNEL AS WELL AS A LARGE NUMBER OF MILITARY AND CIVILIAN WORKERS ARE NOW REQUIRED TO WEAR NUCLEAR RADIATION DOSIMETERS. ALTHOUGH MUCH OF THE POTENTIAL EXPOSURE IS FROM NEUTRONS, PRESENTLY NO SMALL ELECTRONIC NEUTRON DOSIMETER EXISTS AND ONLY PASSIVE DEVICES ARE AVAILABLE. THIS LEADS NOT ONLY TO EXCESS SHIELDING REQUIREMENTS AND INEFFICIENT USE OF PERSONNEL, BUT ALS ...

  4. NOVEL NON-AQUEOUS ELECTROLYTES FOR A HIGH RATE PRIMARY MAGNESIUM BATTERY

    SBC: COVALENT ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE NAVY CURRENTLY USES AQUEOUS ELECTROLYTE-BASED MG PRIMARY BATTERIES IN A VARIETY OF WEAPONS SYSTEMS. OWING TO PARASITIC MG/H(2)O CORROSION REACTIONS, DELIVERABLE VOLTAGES AND ENERGY DENSITIES ARE SUBSTANTIALLY LESS THAN THEORETICAL. MOREOVER, VOLTAGE DELAYS OFTEN COMPROMISE PERFORMANCE AND THEEBY APPLICABILITY. THUS THERE IS A NEED FOR NEW NON-AQUEOUS ELECTROLYTES COMPATIBLE WITH MG BATTERY CHE ...

  6. PROBABILISTIC RADAR INVERSE SCATTERING

    SBC: Devaney A J Assocs            Topic: N/A

    THE PROBLEM OF ESTIMATING RADAR TARGET PARAMETERS SUCH AS SHAPE, SIZE AND MATERIAL PROPERTIES FROM MONOSTATIC SCATTERING MEASUREMENTS IS FORMULATED WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF STATISTICAL ESTIMATION THEORY AND INVERSE SCATTERING. A BAYESIAN APPROACH TO THIS PROBLEM IS PROPOSED WHERE THE LIKLIHOOD RATIOS BETWEEN MULTIPLE TARGET HYPOTHESES ARE USED TO MAKE AN OPTIMUM TARGET IDENTIFICATION FROM SPARSE SCAT ...

  7. FABRICATION AND EVALUATION OF TITANIUM MATRIX CERMET COMPOSITES FOR HIGH MODULUS AND HIGH TEMPERATURE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: DYNAMET TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PRELIMINARY DEVELOPMENT AT DYNAMET HAS INDICATED THE FABRICATING POTENTIAL FOR PRODUCING TITANIUM MATRIX COMPOSITES BY ADVANCED POWDER METAL TECHNOLOGY. PROTOTYPE COMPOSITE BARS OF TWO CERMET COMPOSITIONS WILL BE FABRICATED BY COLD ISOSTATIC PRESSING, VACUUM SINTERING AND HOT ISOSTATIC PRESSING. IN ADDITION, EXTRUDED BARS OF THE TWO CERMET COMPOSITIONS WILL BE FABRICATED. THE TEST BARS WILL BE INI ...

  9. LOW FLOW SEPARATOR FOR OILY BILGE WATER

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

    PRESENT NAVAL POLLUTION ABATEMENT SYSTEMS BEING USED FOR THE SEPARATION OF OILY CONTAMINANTS FROM THE BILGE WATER PRIOR TO DISCHARGE HAVE BEEN SIZED FOR 10 GPM AND 50 GPM FLOW RATES. THESE SYSTEMS, AT THEIR DESIGN FLOW RATES, ARE SUITABLE FOR APPROXIMATELY 70 PERCENT OF THE NAVY'S FLEET. THE REMAINING 30 PERCENT OF THE FLEET TYPICALLY REQUIRES A BILGE PROCESSING SYSTEM SIZED FOR FLOWS IN THE 1 TO ...

  10. NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTING USING A FIBER OPTIC SENSORY SYSTEM

    SBC: GEO-CENTERS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH PROPOSAL SEEKS TO DEVELOP A FIBER OPTIC SENSOR THAT WILLCONTINUOUSLY MONITOR THE LOCAL STATE OF STRESS/STRAIN INTERNAL TO FIBER REINFORCED COMPOSITE MATERIALS. THE SENSOR WILL CONSIST OF A SINGLE OPTICAL FIBER AND WILL BE AN INTEGRAL COMPONENT OF THE COMPOSITE MATERIAL. THE PROPOSED TECHNIQUE UTILIZES TIME RESOLVED LIGHT BACKSCATTERING WITHIN THE FIBER CORE THAT RESULTS FROM A MATERI ...
