  1. Fast Thermal Calculations for Responsive Targets in Support of Real-Time Scene Generation


    In order to provide the required simulation frame rates we propose to decouple the incident flux calculations from a simple thermal response model. We propose to develop a table-lookup methodology based on high fidelity precomputed environmental and eventually aerothermal fluxes which can be draw in real time to drive the thermal response model. A simple 1-D thermal calculation based on an analyt ...

  2. Very Large Area Microchannel Plate Neutron Detectors


    NOVA Scientific, Inc., teamed with the Electronics Group of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, proposes to construct very large area Microchannel Plate neutron detectors. The applications of these much larger format detectors will serve an exceptionally broad range of government agencies from neutron scattering detectors for DOE to nuclear material panel detectors for NNSA, and ultimately to nuclear m ...

  3. Development of a Miniature Dielectric Traveling-Wave Tube

    SBC: MICROWAVE TECHNOLGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project will involve the development of a novel miniature dielectric traveling-wave tube (DTWT) that will provide short-wavelength radiation for numerous civilian and military applications. The MWS is based on the interaction of an electron beam withthe electromagnetic fields of a traveling wave inside a very compact dielectric waveguide. Our initial studies show the DTWT will offer order ...

  4. Compact Radio-Frequency Electron Gun

    SBC: MICROWAVE TECHNOLGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Microwave Technologies is proposing the development of a novel radio-frequency electron gun (CRFG) for applications such as high-power, high-frequency radiation sources for BMDO sensors and directed energy. The CRFG employs a radio-frequency (RF) electricfield produced inside a compact microwave resonator to extract short high-current electron bunches from a novel silicon cathode. The cathode un ...

  5. Improved SiC Materials for High Power Electronics

    SBC: PHOENIX INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Silicon has long been the semiconductor of choice for high-voltage power electronic applications. Recently, SiC has attracted attention because SiC is projected to have better performance than silicon. [1] SiC power switching devices have yet to becommercialized, largely due to SiC crystal defects, most notably the device-killing micropipe defect, which does not permit high total current parts t ...

  6. A Tunable Interferometric Random Optical Cross-Switch

    SBC: Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A random access, solid-state, optical cross-switch capable of 770 channel discrimination in the telecommunications C-band is designed and proven as an alternative to current thin-film WDM devices and as a mechanically robust alternative tomicroelectromechanical (MEMS) WDM devices. The device may be used in multiplexing (mux), demultiplexing (demux), or complete cross-switch configurations, and is ...

  7. Wide Bandgap Heterojunction Bipolar Transistors for X-Band Operation


    The objective is to develop GaN/4H-SiC HBTs which were demonstrated for the first time in Phase I. These novel HBTs will developed for microwave applications. More specifically, the performance goal is a GaN/SiC heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) withan exceptionally high power density of 10 W/mm (of emitter stripe width and transit frequency much greater than 20 GHz for amplifiers in satelli ...

  8. Novel heterojunction diodes for High Power Electronics

    SBC: VIATRONIX            Topic: N/A

    The wide-bandgap semiconductors GaN and SiC hold great promise for high temperature and highpower electronic devices. This is due to the attractive properties these materials possess, such as wide energy bandgaps, high breakdown fields, high thermalconductivities, and high saturated electron velocities. In addition, GaN and SiC have adequate electron mobilities and can readily be doped n and p ty ...

  9. Monitoring Phytoremediation Process Using the Green Fluorescent Protein

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The removal of pollutant metal ions from water using phytoremediation must be monitored to determine the effectiveness of the process. In particular, a rapid, low cost, in situ method for monitoring metal concentrations in both polluted water and plants is needed to provide the operator of a continuous phytoremediation water purification system with the information required to rotate and replace ...

  10. Measuring Forest Canopy Structure and Aboveground Biomass

    SBC: Foresters Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Improvement in techniques for measuring forest canopy structure and aboveground biomass is needed for the advancement for carbon sequestration monitoring and prediction. This project will develop methods for measuring the three dimensional (3-D) canopy structure with a commercially available scanning laser instrument. The methods will allow for the estimation of the amount and spatial distributi ...
