  1. "A NEW INSTRUMENT FOR THE CHARACTERIZATION OF FOSSIL ENERGY RESOURCES"

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

    MANY IMPORTANT PROBLEMS IN CHARACTERIZING MATERIALS IN THE EARTH'S LITHOSPHERE INVOLVE DETERMINING BOTH ORGANIC AND INORGANIC CONSTITUENTS. RECENT PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE IN THE USE OF THERMAL ANALYSIS IN WHICH THE SAMPLE IS TAKEN THROUGH A TEMPERATURE EXCURSION AND ITS WEIGHT LOSS OR EVOLVED PRODUCTS ARE MONITORED. WHILE THESE TECHNIQUES HAVEPROVIDED IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ORGANIC MATERI ...

  2. "CYCLE LIFE SENSOR FOR RECHARGEABLE LITHIUM BATTERIES"

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

    THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE PROBLEM OF CHARACTERIZING THE STATE OF A RECHARGEABLE LI BATTERY AS A FUNCTION OF CYCLE LIFE HISTORY. BECAUSE ALL LI BATTERIES ARE HERMETICALLY SEALED, WE HAVE CHOSEN TO EVALUATE THE AMOUNT AND DISTRIBUTION OF LI-ELECTROLYTE DEGRADATION PRODUCTS IN SITU BY THE APPLICATION OF ELECTROANALYTICAL TECHNIQUES AT MICROELECTRODES IMBEDDED IN THE CELL PACKAGE. TWO DIFFERENT ELEC ...

  3. "DESIGN OF THE SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE FOR A CHEMICAL ENGINEERING WORKSTATION"

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

    DUE TO THE COMPLEXITY OF THE CALCULATIONS AND THE LACK OF EFFECTIVE STANDARDS, CHEMICAL ENGINEERS AND CHEMISTS HAVE BEEN LEFT BEHIND THEIR MECHANICAL AND ELECTRONIC COUNTERPARTS IN HAVING THE BENEFITS OF A COMPUTER WORKSTATION ADDRESSED TO THEIR REQUIREMENTS. A NEED EXISTS FOR THE MEANS TO INTEGRATE EXISTING AND NEW APPLICATIONS THROUGH A COMMON DATABASE, TO PROVIDE AN EFFECTIVE USER INTERFACE AND ...

  4. "DEVELOPMENT OF A ROBUST NONEQUILIBRIUM PARABOLIZED NAVIER-STOKES CODE"

    SBC: Engineering Analysis Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE GOAL OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO PRODUCE A NEW, REAL GAS, THREE-DIMENSIONAL, PARABOLIZED NAVIER-STOKES (PNS) CODE WHICH IS MORE ROBUST, MORE ACCURATE, AND EASIER TO USE THAN THOSE PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE. MOST "CURRENT DAY" PNS CODES (INCLUDING THE AFWAL PNS CODE) ARE BASED ON THE NONITERATIVE, IMPLICIT BEAM-WARMING FINITE-DIFFERENCE SCHEME. UNFORTUNATELY, CODES OF THIS TYPE HAVE PROVEN TO BEUNRELIA ...

  5. "REDUCTION OF ELECTRONICS INDUSTRY TOXIC AIR EMISSIONS THROUGH THE USE OF A NOVEL VENT GAS SCRUBBER"

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    THE RAPID GROWTH OF THE AMERICAN MICROELECTRONICS INDUSTRY HAS SPAWNED NEW ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE PROCESSES USED TO PREPARE SEMICONDUCTOR CHIPS, THE KEY COMPONENTS OF SOPHISTICATED ELECTRONIC DEVICES. MOST OF THESE PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN IGNORED BECAUSE RELATIVELY LOW VOLUMES OF CHEMICALS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH SEMICONDUCTOR FABRICATION. HOWEVER, THE EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH TOXICITY OF THE ...

  6. 40 WATT POWER AMPLIFIER

    SBC: Hittite Microwave Corporation            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Department of DefenseAir Force
  7. A BORON ASSISTED COMBUSTION MODEL WITH SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SOLID BORON HAS LONG BEEN RECOGNIZED AS A POTENTIAL HIGH VOLUMETRIC DENSITY PROPELLANT FOR VOLUME LIMITED ROCKET AND AIR BREATHING PROPULSION SYSTEMS. HOWEVER, ACHIEVING THIS POTENTIAL HAS BEEN DIFFICULT DUE TO LOW COMBUSTION AND HEAT RELEASE EFFICIENCIES IN CONVENTIONALLY DESIGNED COMBUSTORS. A THREE PHASE MODEL OF BORON ASSISTED COMBUSTION IS POSTULATED AND THE ROLE THAT KINETIC SENSITIVITY ANAL ...

  8. A CALCIUM/ORGANIC CATHOLYTE CELL

    SBC: ECO ENERGY CONVERSION            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS TO INITIALLY CHARACTERIZE THE PERFORMANCE OF A NEW CLASS OF CALCIUM CELLSWHICH USE AN ORGANIC CATHOLYTE. BASED ON INITIAL DATA, THISCLASS OF CELLS WILL HAVE THE ENERGY AND POWER DENSITIES OF BOBBIN-TYPE LI/SOC12 CELLS. THE MAJOR ADVANTAGES OF THIS NEW CLASS OF CELLS ARE ITS HIGH PERFORMANCE LEVEL, THE NON-CORROSIVE NATURE OF ITS CATHOLYTE, THE LOW COST OF I ...

  9. A CERAMIC MEMBRANE FOR GAS SEPARATIONS

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Department of Energy
  10. A COMPACT, REAL-TIME ADAPTIVE OPTICAL SYSTEM FOR ASTRONOMICAL IMAGING

    SBC: Optron Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    GROUND-BASED ASTRONOMICAL IMAGING IS LIMITED BY THE POOR SEEING CONDITIONS THAT RESULT FROM ATMOSPHERIC TURBULENCE IN THE VIEWING PATH. MULTIPLE-MIRROR AND SEGMENTED-MIRROR TELESCOPES REQUIRE ACTIVE OPTICAL WAVEFRONT CONTROL TO OBTAIN THE MAXIMAL RESOLVING POWER AVAILABLE FROM THEIR SYNTHETIC APERTURES. UNFORTUNATELY, TRADITIONAL ADAPTIVE OPTICAL SYSTEMS HAVE DEMONSTRATED POOR SCALABILITY TO LARGE ...
