  3. HIGH SPEED HOLOGRAPHIC SWITCH FOR VLSI INTERCONNECT

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

    THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF SWITCHABLE HOLOGRAMS IN RAPID (\ NANOSECOND) REPROGRAMMING OF VLSI CHIPS. THE CONCEPT WAS CHOSEN FOR HIGH SPEED, LOW SIZE, LOW COST, LOW POWER CONSUMPTION, AND MINIMUM WIRING. IT WILL RESULT IN HIGH FLEXIBILITY AND VERY RAPID REPROGRAMMING BUT WILL NOT BE AS FLEXIBLE AS A CROSS BAR SYSTEM. THE FINAL SYSTEM SHOULD SERVE REAL NEEDS, E.G. CHIP COMPUT ...

  4. IMAGING INFRARED SCENE PROJECTOR

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

    A TOTALLY NEW APPROACH TO HIGH QUALITY FLICKER-FREE IR MOVIE PROJECTION INVOLVING GRATING ENCODED REFLECTIVE IMAGES ON FILM IS DESCRIBED. THIS APPROACH IS DEMONSTRATED AND CAPABLE OF MEETING EACH OF THE REQUIREMENTS OF TOPIC NO. 29 AS WELL AS GIVING NATURAL (NOT "MONOCHROME") SPECTRAL SHAPES, EXTREMELY LARGE DYNAMIC RANGE, INDEPENDENT CONTROL OF DIFFERENT SCENE AREAS, AND READY EXTENSION TO CONCUR ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. High Performance UAV System Design Based on High Power Microturbine Technology

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

    A radical, high performance system design concept for UAV missions is proposed. Its characteristics derive directly from propulsion and power generation capabilities inherent in microturbine technology under development at MIT. The proposed vehicle configurations is an oblate spheroid, giving a high package volume with sufficient fuel capacity for hover duration of about one hour. Thrust from m ...

  7. An Infrared Polarimetric Hyperspectral Imaging Sensor for Low False Alarm Rate Target Detection

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

    Imaging spectrometers are a powerful new tool for performing hyperspectral measurements for remote sensing, environmental monitoring, and target detection and characterization applications. The major problem associated with hyperspectral measurements now, however, is not the technology for performing the measurements but rather the technology for analyzing and recording the high data rates genera ...

  8. Linearly Oscillating Miniature Internal Combustion Engine (MICE)

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

    Micro Aerial Vehicle (¿AVs) will open up a wide range of new missions for the US Armed Forces, but also present a new set of technical challenges. The power and propulsion system will have a significant impact on the ultimate capabilities and range of missions of ¿AVs. While advanced battery technology can provide good propulsion performance for ¿AVs, miniature internal combustion engines can ...

  9. PERSONAL DIGITAL NEUTRON DOSIMETER

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

    OVER A HUNDRED THOUSAND NAVY PERSONNEL AS WELL AS A LARGE NUMBER OF MILITARY AND CIVILIAN WORKERS ARE NOW REQUIRED TO WEAR NUCLEAR RADIATION DOSIMETERS. ALTHOUGH MUCH OF THE POTENTIAL EXPOSURE IS FROM NEUTRONS, PRESENTLY NO SMALL ELECTRONIC NEUTRON DOSIMETER EXISTS AND ONLY PASSIVE DEVICES ARE AVAILABLE. THIS LEADS NOT ONLY TO EXCESS SHIELDING REQUIREMENTS AND INEFFICIENT USE OF PERSONNEL, BUT ALS ...

  10. Low Cost Avalanche Photodiodes and Photodiode Arrays

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

    Silicon avalanche photodiodes are among the most sensitive optical detectors available today. It 11as been shown that large area APDs are potentially an excellent alternative to photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) in applications such as LIDAR, nuclear medicine, physics research and nuclear radiation measurement instrumentation. They can offer improved performance based on their compact size, solid state ...
