  1. ACCURATE PASSIVE RANGING TECHNIQUES

    SBC: ADCOM SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY,INC.            Topic: N/A

    INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES ARE PROPOSED FOR INVESTIGATION IN A PHASE I EFFORT TO DETERMINE PASSIVE RF SURVEILLANCE AND TARGETING SENSORS AND ASSOCAITED METHODOLOGY FOR PERFORMING RAPID AND ACCURAGE MEASUREMENTS OF RANGE/LOCATION OF THREAT RF EMITTERS. THE ESSENTIAL PHYSICAL CONSTRAINTS TO BE OBSERVED ARE SENSOR COMPATIBILITY WITH, AND PORTABILITY OF THE ASSOCIATED RANGE DETERMINATION/PROCESSING EQUIPME ...

  2. ANTI-JAM METHODS FOR RF RECEIVER

    SBC: ATLANTIC AEROSPACE ELECTRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    DETECTION, LOCALIZATION, AND CLASSIFICATION OF SUBMARINES IN ASW OPERATIONS CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH THE USE OF AIR-DROPPED SONOBUOYS. ACOUSTIC SIGNALS SENSED BY SONOBUOYS ARE TELEMETERED BACK VIA AN RF LINK TO AN OVERHEAD AIRCRAFT FOR ASSOCIATED SIGNAL PROCESSING. HOWEVER, THE TELEMETRY PROCESS IS SUBJECT TO RELATIVELY UNSOPHISTICATED RF JAMMING WHICH CAN RENDER THE OVERALL SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM ...

  3. ELECTROPOLYMERIZED METALLO-MARCOCYCLES AS CATALYSTS IN LI/SOC12 CELLS

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

    A RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM AIMED AT STUDYING ELECTROPOLYMERIZED METALLO-POR-PHYRINS, PHTHALOCYANINES AND TETRAAZANNULENES AS CATALYSTS IN THE LI/SOCL(2) CELL IS PROPOSED. THESE CATALYSTS WILL BE DEPOSITED AS CONDUCTIVE POLYMER FILMS ON THE POROUS CARBON ELECTRODES, PRIOR TO THEIR USE IN LI/SOCL(2) CELLS, BY ELECTROCHEMICAL OXIDATION OF THE CORRESPONDING MONOMERS IN A SUITABLE SOLVENT SUCH ...

  4. SWITCHABLE POLYMER MICROWAVE ABSORBER

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

    IT IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP A CONDUCTIVE POLYMER LAMINATE THAT CAN BESWITCHED BETWEEN MICROWAVE TRANSMITTING AND ABSORBING STATES, AND TUNED TO INTERMEDIATE STATES, BY THE APPLICATION OF A SMALL DC ELECTRICAL CURRENT. THE LAMINATE WOULD HAVE A LIGHTWEIGHT POLYMER CONSTRUCTION AND COULD BE USED TO COVER ANY SURFACE AS A COUNTERMEASURE AGAINSTRADAR DETECTION. PHASE I RESEARCH WILL BE DIRECTED AT SURVE ...

  5. THE USE OF ELASTOMERIC INTERLEAF LAYERS TO IMPROVE THE STRENGTHS OF COMPOSITE UNDERWATER PRESSURE HULLS

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

    THICK COMPOSITE PRESSURE HULLS MADE TO DATE HAVE EXHIBITED POOR COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH WHEN COMPARED TO THIN LAMINATED ALLOWABLES. A TRANSVERSE TENSILE FAILURE MECHANISM IS THEORIZED WHICH IS CONSISTENT WITH PREVIOUS TEST RESULTS. THE USE OF ELASTOMERIC INTERLEAVES TO DIVIDE THE THICK LAMINATE INTO A SERIES OF THIN SUBLAMINATES IS PROPOSED AS A MEANS TO INCREASE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH. THIN GR-EPOXY L ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF CLOSED CELL FOAMS TO ATTENUATE UNDERWATER SHOCK WAVES

    SBC: Globe Rubber Works, Inc            Topic: N/A

    LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS WHICH CAN PROTECT EQUIPMENT AND STRUCTURES FROM THE DAMAGING EFFECTS OF UNDERWATER EXPLOSIONS WOULD HAVE MANY APPLICATIONS ON SUBMARINES AND SURFACE SHIPS. CLOSED CELL RIGID EPOXY FOAM WITH APPROXIMATELY 55% AIR VOID CONTENT BY VOLUME HAS BEEN SHOWN TO ATTENUATE THE PEAK PRESSURE IN SHOCK WAVES DUE TO AN UNDERWATER EXPLOSION. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I FEASIBILITY STUDY IS ...

  7. NEURAL NETWORKS FOR AUTONOMOUS MOTOR CONTROL

    SBC: Neurogen Laboratorys Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT METHODS IN MOTOR CONTROL HAVE PROBLEMS DEALING EFFECTIVELY WITH HIGHLY VARIABLE ENVIRONMENTS AND SENSORY-MOTOR PARAMETERS. THE PROPOSED WORK OVERCOMES SOME OF THESE DIFFICULTIES BY BUILDING A NEURAL CONTROLLER THAT LEARNS ADAPTIVE MOTOR CONTROL FROM ITS OWN EXPERIENCE. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PHASE I STUDY IS TO IMPLEMENT A SINGLE-JOINTED ARM AND CONTROLLER FOR POSITIONING UNFORESEEN ...

  8. FINE-SCALE MEASUREMENTS OF MICROWAVE BACKSCATTER FROM THE OCEAN SURFACE

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE REQUEST FUNDS TO SUPPORT RESEARCH AIMED AT IMPROVING THE SPATIAL RESOLUTION OF RADARS ON OCEAN TOWERS IN THIS PROPOSAL. SPECIFICALLY, WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP FOCUSED PHSED-ARRAY CONCEPTS THAT WILL BE APPLICABLE TO FUTURE TOWER EXPERIMENTS. WE SHOW THAT ANTENNA ARRAYS CAN ACHIEVE FOOTPRINTS AREAS SMALLER THAN 1M2. THE DATA WILL BE COLLECTED AND STORED IN SUCH A MANNER THAT THE FOOTPRINT SIZE AND P ...

  9. EMPOWERMENT OF DISADVANTAGED WOMEN THROUGH MULTI-CULTURAL COOPERATIVE

    SBC: Big Sky Artisans            Topic: N/A

    THE METHODS TO BE EMPLOYED IN THIS PARTICIPATORY EXPERIMENT SEEK TO UTILIZE VISUAL AND DEMONSTRATION METHODS IN TEACHINGNEW CRAFTS AND BUSINESS SKILLS TO WOMEN WITH MULTIPLE BARRIERS, (E.G. ENGLISH LANGUAGE DEFICIENCIES; LOW SELF-ESTEEM; LACK OF PERSONAL PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS) IN ORDER TO OVERCOME THE DISSIMILARITIES OF CULTURAL AND ETHNIC VALUES AND TRADITIONAL SKILLS. IT IS THE AIM OF THIS EXPE ...
