  2. TUNABLE HIGH T(C) SUPERCONDUCTING INFRARED DETECTORS

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A SUPERSONDUCTOR BASED INFRARED DETECTOR WITH A CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE SENSITIVITY IS PROPOSED. THE SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILM IS TO HAVE A POLYCRYSTALLINE NATURE TO ACHIEVE JOSEPHSON JUNCTION BEHAVIOR DIRECTLY THROUGH THE ANISOTROPIC SUPERCONDUCTING PROPERTIES OF YBA(2)CU(3)O(7-X). THE DEPOSITION SUBSTRATE IS TO BE AN OXYGEN ION CONDUCTOR THAT WILL PERMIT CONTINUOUS AND CONTROLLED ADJUSTMENT OF THE ...

  3. REMOTELY OPERATED MINE DETECTION SYSTEM

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

    THE CAPABILITY EXISTS TO DETECT MAGNETIC, NONMAGNETIC, METALLIC AND PLASTIC BURIED AND SURFACE SCATTERED MINES THROUGH THE USE OF A SIMPLE SUITE OF SENSORS FROM THE SURFACE. THE CAPABILITY ALSO EXISTS TO DESIGN, BUILD, AND OPERATE A LOW COST REMOTE CONTROLLED PLATFORM FOR CARRYING THIS SUITE OF SENSORS. BOTH TECHNOLOGIES ARE CURRENTLY UNDER DEVELOPMENT AND/OR BEING DEMONSTRATED AT FOSTER-MILLER, I ...

  4. LEADING EDGE STRUCTURAL CONCEPT FOR HYPERVELOCITY VEHICLE

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

    A MAJOR PROBLEM FACING PHYPERSONIC VEHICLE DESIGNERS IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF FLIGHT STRUCTURES WHICH CAN WITHSTAND MULTIPLE HEATING CYCLES TO OVER 3500 DEG F. ADVANCED CARBON/CARBON COMPOSITES (ACC) ARE A LEADING CANDIDATE BUT WILL REQUIRE IMPROVED STRUCTURAL CONCEPTS AND OXIDATION RESISTANT COATINGS. CURRENT 2-D ACC MADE FROM CARBON-PHENOLIC HAVE POOR TRANSVERSE STRENGTH AND THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY. 3 ...

  5. NOVEL CARBON-CARBON COMPOSITE WITH IMPROVED STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES AND PROVISIONS FOR ACTIVE LEADING EDGE COOLING

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

    EFFECTIVE PERFORMANCE OF REUSABLE HYPERSONIC VEHICLES WILL DEPEND ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF THERMAL PROTECTION SYSTEMS (TPS) FOR NOSE TIP, WING LEADING EDGE, AND FUSELAGE STRUCTURES CAPABLE OF OPERATION FOR EXTENDED PERIODS IN AN EXTREME AEROHEATING ENVIRONMENT. MINIMUM WEIGHT DESIGN MAY BE ACHIEVED VIA A COMBINATION OF ACTIVE/PASSIVE TPS APPROACHES. THIS WOULD INVOLVE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH TEMPER ...

  7. COMPACT ACCELERATOR DESIGN BASED ON A CYCLIC INDUCTION ACCELERATOR WITH BRANCHED MAGNETICS

    SBC: SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY, INC            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT DESIGNS FOR HIGH CURRENT (10-100KA) ACCELERATORS ARE BASED ON LINEAR OPERATING GRADIENTS OF AT BEST 1-2 MEV/METER. IN FERRI-(FERRO)MAGNETIC INDUCTION ACCELERATORS, THESE LOW GRADIENTS ARE IMPOSED BY THE PROPERTIES OF THE MATERIAL WHICH COMPRISES THE CORE. WITH AIR CORE RADIAL LINE INDUCTION LINACS, THE CONSTRAINTS IS DERIVED FROM THE GEOMETRY OF THE RADIAL LINES AND THE DIELECTRIC BREAKDOW ...

  8. AN ACTIVE OPTICAL SENSOR FOR ADVANCED MINE AND BARRIER SYSTEMS

    SBC: Sparta, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS A PLAN FOR DEVELOPING A LOW-COST, SIMPLE ACTIVE OPTICAL DETONATION SENSOR FOR ADVANCED MINE AND BARRIER SYSTEMS. DUBBED THE ACTIVE RANGING, TRACKING AND SIGNATURE SENSOR (ARTS), THE PROPOSED SYSTEM IS CAPABLE OF DETERMINING THE RANGE, VECTOR VELOCITY, AND GEOMETRIC PROFILE OF OBJECTS PASSING THROUGH ITS FIELD OF VIEW. IT TAKES ADVANTAGE OF RECENT ADVANCES IN OFF-THESHELF OPT ...

  9. J(C) ENHANCEMENT OF YB(A)(2)CU(3)O(7-X) FIBERS USING LASER ZONE REFINEMENT

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TREMENDOUS EXCITEMENT AND INTEREST HAS BEEN GENERATED IN RECENT MONTHS OVER THE DISCOVERY OF THE YBA(2)CU(3)O(7-X) ("123"), LIQUID NITROGEN SUPERCONDUCTORS. HOWEVER, THIS EXITEMENT HAS BEEN TEMPERED BY THE INABILITY TO ACHIEVE LARGE TRANSPORT J(C)'S IN BULK-PROCESSED POLYCRYSTALLINE MATERIALS BECAUSE OF WEAK LINK BEHAVIOR. THESE WEAK LINKS HAVE TWO POSSIBLE ORIGINS; FIRSTLY, THE PRESENCE OF NONSUP ...
