  1. BEHAVIOR OF METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES AT CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURES

    SBC: Advanced Materials Laboratory            Topic: N/A

    METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES THAT MAY BE USED IN DEEP SPACE VEHICLES MIGHT HAVE SEVERE INTERNAL STRESSES DUE TO THE THERMAL EXPANSION DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE MATRIX AND THE FIBERS. SINCE THE TEMPERATURES EXPERIENCED WITH THESE VEHICLES MAY BE AS LOW AS A FEW DEGREES ABOVE ABSOLUTE ZERO, IT IS NECESSARY TO KNOW THE THERMAL MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR OF METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES TO BE USED AS STRUCTURAL MATERIALS ...

  2. A NON-INTRUSIVE TURBINE TEMPERATURE FOR DIAGNOSTIC AND MONITORING APPLICATIONS

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

    ACCURATE MEASUREMENTS OF TURBINE BLADE TEMPERATURES ARE IMPORTANT IN MONITORING TURBINE HEALTH AND PERFORMANCE AND IN DIAGNOSING PROBLEMS. CURRENT INTRUSIVE AND OPTICAL TECHNIQUES HAVE SHORTCOMINGS. THERMOCOUPLES HAVE PROBLEMS WITH DURABILITY AND ACCURACY. TWO COLOR PYROMETRY LSO ENCOUNTERS PROBLEMS WITH ACCURACY DUE TO INTERFERENCE BY REFLECTED RADIATION AND PARTICULARLY REFLECTED EMISSION FROM T ...

  4. UNIFIED SYMBOLIC AND NUMERICAL PROCESSING FOR AIRBORNE SURVEILLANCE

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO PROVE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING A NOVEL APPROACH OF COMBINED SYMBOLIC AND NUMERICAL INFORMATION PROCESSING TO AID E-2C OPERATORS TO CARRY OUT THEIR SURVEILLANCE MISSION. DUE TO THE VAST AMOUT OF SURVEILLANCE DATA THAT NEEDS TO BE PROCESSED, E-C2 OPERATORS FACE A DIFFICULT TASK IN CARRYING OUT THEIR MISSIONS. COMPLEX NUMERICAL ALGORITHMS FOR PROCESSING TARGET TRA ...

  5. LOW COST MASS PRODUCED ENVIRONMENTALLY STABLE SINGLE MODE COUPLER

    SBC: Aster Assocs            Topic: N/A

    FIBER OPTIC COUPLERS ARE FOUND IN MOST CURRENT APPLICATIONS OF FIBER OPTICS, FROM INSTRUMENTATION THROUGH TELECOMMUNICAIONS SYSTEMS AND FIBER OPTIC SENSORS. IN SPITE OF THEIR IMPORTANCE, FIBER OPTIC COUPLERS ARE STILL MADE BY HIGHLY LABOR INTENSIVE PROCESSES THAT ARE NOT PARTICULARLY AMENABLE TO AUTOMATION. COUPLING BETWEEN FIBERS IS A CONSEQUENCE OF THE OVERLAP OF THE EVANESCENT ELECTRIC FIELDS O ...

  6. LOW COST ACOUSTIC SENSOR TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: Atlantic Applied Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    AN ANALYTICAL MODEL OF THE RESPONSE OF FIBER OPTIC AND PIEZOELECTRIC POLYMER HYDROPHONES TO MECHANICAL VIBRATION, WILL BE DERIVED AND COMPARED WITH AT-SEA TRIAL DATA. ADDITIONAL NOISE MECHANISMS SUCH AS THERMAL FLUCTUATIONS OR PYRO-ELECTRICITY WILL BE EXAMINED. A DESIGN FOR LOW NOISE HYDROPHONES WILL BE PRODUCED.

  7. LOW COST TELEMETRY SYSTEM

    SBC: Atlantic Applied Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    A LOW COST FIBER OPTIC TELEMETRY SYSTEM IS PROPOSED FOR TOWED ARRAYS. A CONVENTIONAL PIEZO-ELECTRIC HYDROPHONE MODULATES AN FET WHICH IN TURN MODULATES AN LED. THE LIGHT FROM THE LED PROPAGATES UP A FIBER TO A PHOTO-DETECTOR ON THE MOTHER SHIP. A SEPARATE FIBER IS REQUIRED FOR EVERY CHANNEL. HOWEVER, THE TECHNOLOGY IS SIMPLE AND LOW RISK.

  8. REAL TIME DYNAMIC ANALYZER FOR QUALITY CONTROL OF RUBBER PRODUCTS

    SBC: Atlantic Applied Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    A SYSTEM FOR RAPID MEASUREMENT OF EFFECTIVE DYNAMIC PROPERTIES OF ELASTOMERIC PARTS (INCLUDING FINISHED PARTS FOR QUALITY CONTROL) WILL BE DEVELOPED. THIS SYSTEM WILL BE MICROCOMPUTER BASED AND "USER FRIENDLY" FOR USE BY NONSPECIALISTS IN A MANUFACTURING SETTING. IT WILL ALSO BE A USEFUL LABORATORY TOOL WHICH CAN BE EMPLOYED TO RELATE EFFECTIVE PROPERTIES OF PARTS TO INTRINSIC DYNAMIC PROPERTIES A ...

  9. PROPULSION MACHINERY SYSTEM NOISE PREDICTION MODEL

    SBC: Atlantic Applied Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    OVER THE LAST 15 YEARS DETAILED METHODS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED TO PREDICT THE TORSIONAL AND LATERAL VIBRATION OF PROPULSION GEAR TRAINS USING LUMPED PARAMETER, DISTRIBUTED MASS-ELASTIC PARAMETER AND STATISTICAL ENERGY ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES. BY IMPROVING THE DETAIL USED FOR THE PROPELLER, SHAFTING AND SOUND ISOLATION COUPLINGS ON THE OUTPUT AND TURBINE ROTOR, SHAFTING AND COUPLING MODELLING, ON THE INPU ...

  10. INNOVATIVE METHODS FOR SUBMARINE DETECTION

    SBC: Atlantic Applied Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL ACTIVE SONAR IS SUGGESTED WHEREIN THE CAVITATION NOISE OF A SHIP'S SCREWS PROVIDES INSONIFICATION OF DISTANT TARGETS AND A TOWED LINE ARRAY PASSIVE SONAR PROVIDES THE RECEIVER OF REFLECTED SIGNALS. THE UNDERWATER RADIATED NOISE SOURCE IS CONTINUOUS IN FREQUENCY AND TIME, AND IS OF MODEST POWER. AN OWNER-SHIP OR COOPERATING SHIP OR SUBMARINE TOWED LINE ARRAY WILL CONTINUOUSLY MONITOR THE SO ...
