  1. CONTROLLED EMITTANCE MATERIAL FOR IR SIGNATURE SUPPRESSION APPLICATIONS

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

    SKIN COATINGS FOR IR SIGNATURE SUPPRESSION REQUIRE MORE THAN SIMPLE EMISSIVITY CONTROL. CONTROL OF THE DIRECTIONAL DISTRIBUTION OF EMITTED/REFLECTED RADIATION AND ACTIVE HEATING OR COOLING ARE ALSO NECESSARY. THE RADIANCE FROM THE OBJECT NEEDS TO APPROXIMATE THE RADIANCE FROM THE BACKGROUND OVER A BROAD RANGE OF VIEWING ANGLES. THIS REQUIRES A COMPLICATED BIDIRECTIONAL REFLECTANCE DISTRIBUTION FUN ...

  2. ATOMIC LAYER EPITAXY OF DIAMOND

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

    THE ABILITY TO GROW HETEROSPITAXIAL THIN FILMS OF DIAMOND IS LIMITED IN PART BY THE PROPENSITY OF SUCH FILMS TO NUCLEATE AT MULTIPLE SITES WITHOUT PROPER ORIENTATION. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A 2-DIMENSIONAL GROWTH PROCESS BY ATOMIC LAYER EPITAXY (ALE) USING ADVANCED MOLECULAR BEAM TECHNIQUES. THE PHASE I RESEARCH WILL FOCUS ON DETERMINING THE MICROCHEMISTRY OF DEPOSITION PROCESSES AND THUS ALLOW FOR ...

  4. PASSIVE NON-COOPERATIVE TARGET RECOGNITION SENSOR

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

    THE POLARIZATION CHARACTERISTICS OF AIRCRAFT INFRARED SIGNATURES HAVE BEEN STUDIED AS A MEANS TO ENHANCE THE PERFORMANCE OF LONG RANGE PASSIVE INFRARED DETECTION SYSTEMS OPERATING IN THE PRESENCE OF CLUTTER. THESE STUDIES ALSO GENERATED EVIDENCE THAT THE AMOUNT AND ANGLE OF POLARIZATION AS WELL AS ITS SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION ARE UNIQUE BETWEEN DIFFERENT TYPES AND CLASSES OF AIRCRAFT. IT MAY BE POSSIB ...

  6. A NEW NUCLEAR SURVEY INSTRUMENT WITH IMAGING CAPABILITY

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MODERN MILITARY OPERATIONS HAVE MADE IT NECESSARY FOR COMMANDERS TO HAVE RADIOLOGICAL INFORMATION CONCERNING NUCLEAR CONTAMINATION OF OCCUPIED AREAS. THIS INCREASING NEED FOR MORE ACCURATE AND RELIABLE INFORMATION FOR THE PURPOSE OF LOCATING AND IDENTIFYING POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS NUCLEAR SOURCES, HAS LED TO NEED FOR IMPROVED INSTRUMENTATION. IN PARTICULAR, A NUCLEAR SURVEY INSTRUMENT WITH IMAGING C ...

  7. AN INVESTIGATION OF MATERIALS AND AUTOMATED PRODUCTION METHODS FOR SMART STRUCTURES

    SBC: American Composite Technology            Topic: N/A

    MANY POTENTIAL SPACE SYSTEMS WILL REQUIRE STRUCTURES CAPABLE OF MAINTAINING EXTREMELY TIGHT TOLERANCES ON DIMENSIONS AND VIBRATIONS. ONE APPROACH TO ACHIEVING THE NECESSARY TOLERANCES IS TO EMPLOY TRUSSES MADE USING SMART STRUCTURES. A SMART STRUCTURE IS ONE IN WHICH THE CONTROL, SENSING AND ACTUATION FUNCTIONS ARE INTEGRATED INTO THE MATERIAL WHICH MAKES UP THE INDIVIDUAL TRUSS ELEMENTS. PROPERLY ...

  8. A RARE-EARTH CRYOGENIC PROJECTOR USING HIGH-TC SUPERCONDUCTORS

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A RARE-EARTH, MAGNETOSTRICTIVE, MATERIAL, TB(X)DY(1-X) (0.50.6), OPERATING AT CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURES, CAN STORE AND RELEASE TWENTY TIMES THE ENERGY OF PIEZOELECTRIC MATERIALS, AND FIVE TIMES THE ENERGY OF THE BEST ROOM-TEMPERATURE, MAGNETOSTRICTIVE, RARE-EARTH ALLOYS. THIS MAKES IT IDEAL FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF LOW-FREQUENCY, HIGH-POWER, UNDERWATER, ACOUSTIC PROJECTORS. BROAD-BAND, LOW-Q, PROJECTO ...

  9. A MEMBRANE EXTRACTION PROCESS FOR SHIPBOARD RECOVERY OF JP-5 ICING INHIBITOR ADDITIVE

    SBC: Arete Technologies            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A MEMBRANE-BASED EXTRATION PROCESS FOR THE RECOVERY OF ICING INHIBITOR ADDITIVE FROM WATER SEPARATED FROM JP-5 AVIATION TURBINE FUEL; THE TECHNOLOGY WILL ENABLE REBLENDING OF THE ADDITIVIE. THE NOVEL ELEMENT IN THE PROCESS CONSISTS OF A HOLLOWFIBER CROSSFLOW MEMBRANE CONTACTOR TO WHICH AN AQUEOUS FEED SOLUTION OF ANTI-ICING AGENT AND A SUITABLE WATER-IMMISCIBLE EXTRACTION FLU ...

  10. MITIGATION OF ELECTROLYTIC CORROSION IN ELECTRONIC COOLING SYSTEMS

    SBC: Arlington Technical Services            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED TO ELUCIDATE ELECTROLYTIC CORROSION IN COOLING SYSTEMS OF THE TYPE EMPLOYED ON NAVY SHIPS FOR HIGH-POWER ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT. DURING TRANSMISSION, VERY HIGH PULSED DC VOLTAGE DIFFERENCE IS EXPERIENCED BY OPPOSITE METAL HOSE FITTINGS, IN CONTACT WITH DEIONIZED WATER COOLANT. ANOMALOUSLY HIGH RATES OF CORROSION NECESSITATE AN EXPENSIVE FITTING AND HOSE REPLACEMENT PROGRAM. A MAJOR ST ...
