  1. INFRARED DECOY SPECTRAL SIGNATURE MODIFICATION

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

    PRESENT INFRARED DECOYS FOR PROTECTION OF NAVY SHIPS ARE RELIABLE, HIGH INTENSITY COMBUSTION SOURCES. HOWEVER, THEIR EMISSION SPECTRA HAVE CHARACTERISTICS WHICH ALLOW THEM TO BE DISTINGUISHED FROM THE SHIPS THEY ARE INTENDED TO PROTECT. IT IS DESIRABLE TO DEVELOP MODIFIED FUELS WHOSE COMBUSTION WOULD PRODUCE INFRARED SIGNATURES WITH THE APPROPRIATE SPECTRAL PROPERTIES. THIS GOAL REQUIRES A DETAILE ...

  2. FUEL CELLS FOR NAVAL AUXILIARY POWER

    SBC: ANALYTIC POWER LLC            Topic: N/A

    ANALYTIC POWER PROPOSES A SYSTEM ANALYSIS OF THREE POTENTIAL NAVAL AUXILIARY POWER PLANTS USING FUEL CELL TECHNOLOGY. A SYSTEMS ANALYSIS OF THIS APPLICATION IS MANDATORY BECAUSE, MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, THE FUEL CELL IS NOT THE LIMITING TECHNOLOGY. IN MANY CASES, THE FUEL PROCESSOR CAN BE MUCH LARGER THAN THE FUEL TAN AND THE POWER CONDITIONER MAY BE LARGER THAN THE FUEL CELL. CONVENTIONAL COMMERCIAL ...

  3. ELECTRIALLY-CONDUCTING POLYMERS MODELLED ON BIOPOLYMERS

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

    WE WILL FOCUS ON THE DESIGN, PREPARATION, AND CHARACTERIZATION OF A SERIES OF ORGANIC POLYMERS WHICH WILL HAVE CONDUCTING CAPABILITIES COMPARABLE TO THOSE OF POLYACETYLENE, AN EXTREMELY CONDUCTIVE, YET UNSTABLE, ORGANIC POLYMER. THESE POLYMERS ARE TO HAVE INHERENT STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES OF ALIGNMENT AND STABILITY MODELLED AFTER NATURALLY OCCURING POLYMERS SUCH AS PROTEINS. UTILIZING INTUITIVE DESIG ...

  4. THERMAL CONDUCTING PLASTICS

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    A NONMETALLIC MATERIAL IS PROPOSED THAT CAN BE USED TO MANUFACTURE COATINGS OR COMPLETE SECTIONS OF HEAT EXCHANGERS WHICH ARE SUBMERGED IN SALTWATER FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME. THE PROPOSED MATERIAL SHOULD BE RESISTANT TO THE SEAWATER EXPOSURE AND AT THE SAME TIME HAVE A THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY EXCEEDING 30 W/M-OC.

  5. HYPERSONIC RAMJET LEADING EDGE MATERIALS DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    CERAMATEC HAS CONDUCTED EXPLORATORY RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ON MONOLITHIC AND COMPOSITE MATERIALS IN THE ZRB2 AND TIB2 SYSTEMS AND HAS OBTAINED VERY ENCOURAGING RESULTS WITH SEVERAL PROPRIETARY COMPOSITIONS/CONSTRUCTIONS. THE AVERAGE STRENGTH OF A BASELINE TIB2 COMPOSITION WAS MEASURED AT 877 MPA (127.3 KSI). COMPOSITE STRUCTURESWITH DISCONTINUOUS REINFORCEMENT HAD STRENGTHS IN THE RANGE 400-600 ...

  6. INJECTION MOLDING OF CERAMIC MATRIX COMPOSITES

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE OVERALL OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE SUCCESSFUL FABRICATION AND DENSIFICATION OF CERAMIC MATRIX COMPOSITES FORMED BY INJECTION MOLDING. TO ACCOMPLISH THIS OBJECTIVE, A DESIGNED TEST MATRIX WILL BE DEVELOPED THAT WILL SYSTEMATICALLY INVESTIGATE THE KEY INJECTION MOLDING AND DEBINDING PARAMETERS SUCH AS BINDER COMPOSITION, SOLIDS RATIO, MOLDING CONDITIONS, DEBINDING CONDITIONS ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF NOVEL CRYOPRESERVATION TECHNIQUE FOR HUMAN RED BLOOD CELLS

    SBC: CRYOLIFE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WITH CURRENT FDA-APPROVED PROTOCOLS FOR THE CRYOPRESERVATION OF HUMAN RED BLOOD CELLS, THE CELLS ARE TREATED WITH MULTIMOLAR CONCENTRATIONS OF GLYCEROL, A PERMEATING CRYOPROTECTANT. AFTER THAWING, EXTENSIVE PROCESSING OF RED CELLS IS REQUIRED TO REMOVE THE GLYCEROL, PRIOR TO TRANSFUSION, TO PREVENT HEMOLYSIS. FURTHERMORE, EVEN IN THE PRESENCE OF CRYOPROTECTANTS, THE FORMATION OF ICE DURING COOLING ...

  8. A LI/SO(2)CL(2) CELL WITH IMPROVED PERFORMANCE

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

    A RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM AIMED AT DEVELOPING A LI/SO(2)CL(2) CELL HAVING IMPROVED PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS IS PROPOSED. THIS CELL, WHEN FULL DEVELOPED, IS EXPECTED TO HAVE A SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER VOLUMETRIC ENERGY DENSITY THAN THE LI/SOCL(2) CELL. IMPROVEMENTS IN THE PERFORMANCE OF THE LI/SO(2)CL(2) CELL WILL BE ACHIEVED VIA THE FOLLOWING MODIFICATIONS: I. USE OF MIXED ELECTROLYTES, BA ...

  9. IMPROVED OPTICAL TRACKING PROCESSOR

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

    MUCH WORK HAS BEEN DONE OF LATE IN OPTICAL TARGET TRACKING. THE BULK OF IT HAS INVOLVED CENTROID TRACKING, ROSETTE SCANNING, EDGE TRACKING, AND "INTELLIGENT TRACKING ALGORITHMS" SUCH AS BAYESIAN ALGORITHMS AND OTHER STATISTICAL METHODS. ALL OF THESE METHODS SUFFER FROM FLAWS THAT MAKE THE RESULTANT TRACKING SYSTEMS VULNERABLE TO SIMPLE COUNTERMEASURES. THE SIMPLEST, AND MOST EFFECTIVE COUNTERMEASU ...

  10. INTERFACE MODIFIED GLASS FIBER/THERMOPLASTIC MATRIX COMPOSITE

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

    GLASS FIBER-REINFORCED THERMOPLASTIC RESIN COMPOSITES CURRENTLY SHOW UNSATISFACTORY PERFORMANCE AS A RESULT OF INADEQUATE ADHESION AT THE FIBER/RESIN INTERFACE. INTERFACE MODIFICATION BY APPLICATION OF HIGH TEMPERATURE POLYIMIDE RESIN COATINGS TO GLASS FIBERS WILL GREATLY IMPROVE GLASS FIBER/THERMOPLASTIC RESIN INTERACTION. THIN, CONTINUOUS, POLYIMIDE COATINGS WILL BOND TENACIOUSLY TO GLASS FIBER ...
