  1. Automated Accurate Aircraft Weighing System

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Herein, an innovative aircraft weighing system based on a set of piezopolymar film pad sensors is described. The wieghing system, which would operate automatically as the aircraft taxi over it, would be unobtrusive, accurate, and reliable. These sensor pads could be integrated into the flight deck surface below the grated rubber surface finish. These thin (20-30 mils) piezopolymer sensing pads ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. OZONE DEPLETION POTENTIAL DETERMINATION OF SHIPBOARD FIRE EXTINGUISHING AGENTS

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HALON 1301 (CF3BR) IS CURRENTLY IN WIDE SPREAD USE ON NAVAL VESSELSAS AN EFFECTIVE AND NON-TOXIC ACTIVE AGENT IN FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEMS. UNFORTUNATELY, FUTURE MANUFACTURE AND USE OF CF3BR MAY BE SEVERELY RESTRICTED DUE TO ITS ROLE AS A POTENT AGENT IN STRATOSPHERIC OZONE DEPLETION CHEMISTRY. ALTERNATIVE FIRE SUPPRESSION CHEMICALS NEED TOBE IDENTIFIED AND ASSESSED TO REPLACE HALON 1301 IN NAVAL S ...

  5. Three Dimentional Target Location From Video Images

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There are strong motivations for the development of accurate, efficient algorithms for the three-dimensional location of stationary or moving targets from one or more video sensors. In this proposal we describe an effort to accomplish this task by exploiting ALPHATECH's unique expertise in all related technology areas: extraction of information from imagery, multi-object tracking, three-dimens ...

  6. Recovery of Pyrotechnic Ingredients Using Supercritical Fluids

    SBC: APHIOS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Many pyrotechnics contain valuable resources which could be used in commercial applications, for example metals (e.g. magnesium, aluminum); metallic salts of copper, strontium, and barium; oxidizer (e.g. sodium nitrate, potassium Perchlorate); binders such as viton, and dyes which have reclaimed value. The Navy is seeking technology which can recover the valuable ingredients from pyrotechnic flar ...

  7. ANTI-REFLECTION COATINGS FOR DIAMOND FILMS

    SBC: Applied Science And Technology            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP AN ANTI-REFLECTION (AR) COATING FOR DIAMOND FILMS OPTIMIZED TO ENHANCE THE TRANSMISSION IN THE 8 TO 12 MICRON REGION OF THE SPECTRUM. THE METAL-OXIDE MATERIALS TO BE EVALUATED HAVE GOOD OPTICAL TRANSMISSION IN THIS SPECTRAL REGION AND REFRACTIVE INDICES NEAR THE OPTIMUM VALUE OF 1.55 FOR A DIAMOND AR COATING. SINCE A SECONDARY PURPOSE OF THE COATING IS TO PROTECT THE DIAMOND ...

  8. HFC-134A SHIPBOARD SCREW COMPRESSOR REFRIGERATION SYSTEM

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

    DUE TO THE FORTHCOMING BAN ON ALL OZONE DEPLETING REFRIGERANTS, THENAVY NEEDS NEW REFRIGERATION TECHNOLOGIES TO REPLACE THOSE USING SUCH CHEMICALS. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM USES SOME OF THE INHERENT DESIGN ADVANTAGES OF A SCREW COMPRESSOR TO ADAPT IT TO A VAPOR COMPRESSION REFRIGERATION SYSTEM USING REFRIGERANT HFC-134A. HFC-134A HAS NO OZONE DEPLETION POTENTIAL. THE USE OF SCREW COMPRESSORS CAN OVERCO ...

  9. Novel Method for Strengthening Sapphire at Elevated Temperatures

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

    Aspen Systems proposes to develop a novel process to increase the strength of sapphire at elevated temperatures. The resulting strength increase will alleviate the adverse effects of frictional heating of sapphire windows. Frictional heating can initiate a c-axis strength loss, leading to premature failure. The Aspen process will uniformly implant silicon atoms through the entire window, as ...

  10. 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 ...
