  2. DYNAMIC BORESIGHT MENSURATION

    SBC: Lsi Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A TECHNIQUE IS PROPOSED WHEREBY THE BORESIGHT ALIGNMENT BETWEEN A HELICOPTER MISSILE OR ROCKET LAUNCH SUPPORT STRUCTURE AND THE REFERENCE SYSTEM CAN BED DETERMINED IN THREE AXES. THE TECHNIQUE EMPLOYS NEWLY-DEVELOPED FAST SCANNING ELECTRO-OPTICAL SENSORS AND FAST SPECIALMICROPROCESSOR SUBSYSTEMS. THE WORKPLAN INCLUDES DESIGN AND EVALUATION OF THE APPROPRIATE ALGORITHMS, SCALED EXPERIMENTS USING A ...

  3. OPTICAL DETECTION OF PAVEMENT ICING

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A METHOD FOR DETERMINING INCIPIENT ICE LAYER FORMATION ON PAVED SURFACES IS TO BE DEMONSTRATED. THE PROPOSED TECHNIQUE WILL RELY UPON THE ENHANCEMENT IN SPECULAR REFLECTANCE, I.E., "GLARE," THAT WILL OCCUR WHEN AN OVERLYING ICE LAYER FORMS ON A PAVED SURFACE. THE PROPOSED INVESTIGATIONS WILL ALSO EXPLORE HOW OVERLYING ICE LAYERS MODIFY THE BACKSCATTERED RADIATION OBSERVED OFF PAVEMENT SURFACES. TH ...

  4. TEST PROCEDURE FOR ASBESTOS IN MILITARY FACILITIES

    SBC: Hygeia Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS IS A PHASE II AWARD CONTINUING R&D EFFORTS TO DEVELOP AA FIELDPORTABLE POLARIZED LIGHT MICROSCOPE. THIS PHASE II EFFORT ENTAILS THE ADDITION OF PHASE CONTRAST OPTICS TO THE PL INSTRUMENT TO PROVIDE COMPLETE ANALYTICAL CAPABILITY FOR THE MEASUREMENT OF ASBESTOS IN THE FIELD. AN IMPORTANT AS- PECT OF THIS PHASE II EFFORT INCLUDES THE FIELD RUGGEDIZING THE INSTRUMENT. A TRAINING MANUAL AND VHS-F ...

  5. DUCTILE ALLOY ENCAPSULATED CERAMIC ARMOR DEVELOPMENT

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

    IMPROVED ARMOR RESISTANT MATERIALS ARE REQUIRED TO KEEP PACE WITH TECHNOLOGICAL IMPROVEMENTS IN PENETRATOR MATERIALS. CERAMIC ARMOR OFFERS POTENTIAL BUT LACKS THE REQUIRED TOUGHNESS REQUIRED FOR GOOD BALLISTIC PROPERTIES. ENCAPSULATION OF THE CERAMIC MATERIAL IN A DUCTILE ALLOY CLADDING COULD OFFER SIGNIFICANT ADVANTAGE IN OVERALL BALLISTIC BEHAVIOR. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM WILL ENCOMPASS A PRELIMINA ...

  6. IMPROVED EPITAXIAL GALLIUM ARSENIDE LAYER GROWTH ON SILICON SUBSTRATES

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROGRAM INVESTIGATES THE USE OF GAAS LAYERS EPITAXIALLY GROWN ON SILICON WAFERS AS SUBSTRATES FOR GAAS ELECTRONIC DEVICES. THE NEW GAAS-ON-SI SUBSTRATES WILL BE LARGER, MORE UNIFORM, MORE RUGGED, AND MORE THERMALLY CONDUCTIVE THAN THE BULK GAAS SUBSTRATES THEY ARE DESIGNED TO REPLACE. GAAS LAYER GROWTH WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY METALORGANIC CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (MOCVD), WHICH HAS A ...

  8. IN-SITU FIBER OPTIC SENSOR FOR FTIR MONITORING OF COMPOSITE CURE CYCLES

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

    FOURIER TRANSFORM INFRARED SPECTROSCOPY (FTIR) DEMONSTRATED IN THE LABORATORY IS A VALUABLE TECHNIQUE FOR MONITORING THE CURE CYCLE IN ADVANCED THERMOSETTING COMPOSITE MATERIALS. NEW INFRARED TRANSMITTING OPTICAL FIBERS OFFER THE PROMISE THAT THIS LABORATORY TECHNOLOGY CAN BE MOVED INTO A PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENT TO PROVIDE AN INSITU, NON-DESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION TECHNIQUE TO DETERMINE THE STATE OF CU ...

  9. FIBER OPTIC NON-CONTACT TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENT SYSTEM FOR COMBAT VEHICLE TRACKS

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

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1987 Department of DefenseArmy
  10. TUNABLE SOLID STATE LASER SOURCE

    SBC: Schafer Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE PROGRAM PROPOSED HEREIN IS TO EXPERIMENTALLY INVESTIGATE AND CHARACTERIZE VISIBLE LASER EMISSION FROM THE SOLID-STATE LASER MATERIAL TI(3+):AL(2)O(3) USING A SURFACE DISCHARGE AS THE PRIMARY EXCITATION SOURCE. RECENTLY, A VISIBLE FLUORESCENCE REGION WAS FOUND TO EXIST EXTENDING FROM 480 TO 690 NANOMETERS AND LASER EMISSION HAS BEEN ACHIEVED IN THIS EMISSION BAND IN THE PROPOSER'S LABORATORY. W ...
