  1. Measurement of Attitude by Power Spectra (MAPS)

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    We propose a system to determine object attitude from special video imagery taken from two locations, with an image analysis system based on the Fourier Transform, which provides the spatial power spectrum of the image. The Fourier transform of an image represents the information in terms of angles and spatial frequencies. In this case we are interested only in the angles. The transform of a mis ...

  3. Toughened E-Beam Curable Resins for Low Cost, Rapidly Pultruded, Filament Wound and Resin Transfer Molded Composites


    The objective of the proposed program is to demonstrate the feasibility of an innovative, cost-effective, rapid-pultrusion composite processing technique and newly formulated resins which substantially reduce the need for expensive tooling, high puller tensions (dies are expected to be an order of magnitude shorter than conventional pultrusion dies) and slow thermal processing and can cure the com ...

  5. Self-Organizing Biomolecular Materials as Structural and Patterning Elements for Device Fabrication

    SBC: AMBERGEN, INC            Topic: N/A

    The engineering of materials on a nanometer scale is an important technological goal which would facilitate the development of a new generation of materials and devices. A variety of biological membranes exhibit self-assembly into 2-D arrays including the purple membrane from Halobacteria salinarium and the S-layer from Sulfolobus acidocaldarius. Methods have been developed to use these membrane ...

  6. Extremely Lightweight Hydrogen Fuel Cells

    SBC: ANALYTIC POWER LLC            Topic: N/A

    The fuel cell power supplies of today are two times too heavy compared to man-portable power supplies. A major portion of the weight is in the fuel cell stack, a stack of carbon electrodes with metal bipolar plate separators that are sandwiched between two end plates and held in place by tie rods. We continue to investigate lighter weight materials to use in our conventional fuel cell stack. Ho ...

  7. 6-DOF Isolation and Excitation Facility

    SBC: Amtec Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This sponsoring agency has defined the need for a six degree-or-freedom (6DOF) magnetically levitated (maglev) test platform to be used for vibration analysis. The intended payload can range in mass from 1Kg to 1000kg and i size up to one meter by one meter at the base. Peak linear acceleration of 5 g's and strokes of 25 mm (peak-peak) are required. The platform should also be capable of simult ...

  8. The Detection and Location of Buried Metallic and Nonmetallic Targets

    SBC: Anro Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ANRO is currently under a Phase II SBIR contract to evaluate an Ultra-Wideband (UWB) linear radar array and the processing of co- and cross-polarization returns for detecting and discriminating buried mines. Experiments indicate that both metallic and plastic ines located several inches below the suface are reliably detected using a novel real-time cancellation scheme; however, it appears that ta ...

  9. Next Generation Fire Protective Textiles Incorporating Microencapsulated Flame Retardants

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

    An important facet to a soldier's survivability depends on the clothing worn during combat and training exercises. Common fibers used in the textile industry, particularly nylons and polyesters, are flammable, produce toxic smoke and are potentially hazardous when worn soldiers. Flame retardant materials applied directly to these fibers may adversely alter the properties of the fabric and/or deg ...

  10. Delivery of Vaccines by Biodegradable Polymeric Microcapsules with Bioadhesion Properties

    SBC: CAMBRIDGE SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The development of vaccines is of prime inportance to issues of public health and to issues of military significance. Oral vaccines present a means of delivery which is both convenient to the patient and conservative to time and money for medical personnel charge with administration of vaccination programs. A successful oral vaccine, for maximum efficacy, should 1) delivery antigen over an exten ...
