  1. Diamond Opening-Switch-Based X-Ray Simulator

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop an all-solid-state, compact, portable, multi-gigawatt poer modulator for electron and ion beam diodes, high power microwave and x-ray sources. This modulator is based on Inductive Energy Store (IES) using an array of Diamond Opening Switches for power compression. Because power amplification using IES requires a much smaller volume ...

  3. Development of a low-cost, computer-controlled, portable LITA system for high-pressure combustion measurements

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    We propose to engineer a low-cost computer-controlled optical diagnostic system for measuring sound speed, thermal diffusivity, density, and velocity. This system will use laser-induced thermal accoustics (LITA), a transient-grating technique capable of making accurate single-shot measurements in luminous, multiphase, high-pressure flows. The LITA signal intensity is quadratic in fluid density f ...

  4. Nonintrusive System for Extraction of Interlayer Printed Circuit Patterns

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this two-phase program is to develop a prototype system which addresses the problem of nondestructively extracting layout patterns for multilayer printed circuit boards. The system will use x-ray digital tomosynthesis for image acquisition, and advanced image processing, including morphological operators, to extract circuit features from the images. The objectives of Phase I are to 1 ...

  5. Numerically Efficient Rotorcraft Trim and Transient Response

    SBC: ADVANCED ROTORCRAFT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develo a numerically efficient rotorcraft trim and transient response algorithm. The algorithm is intended for application in a periodic dynamic system with a large number of degrees of freedom as is commonly the case in current comprehensive rotorcraft analysis codes (such as 2GCHAS). The innovation of this proposal can be summarized as follows: 1) Utilizing Model Order Reduction ...

  8. Fabrication of an Eye Safe, High Resolution Laser Radar FPA 3-D Imaging System

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY, FOCAL PLANE ARRAY (FPA) SENSOR TECHNOLOGY REQUIRES READING OUT AND DIGITIZING EACH AND EVERY PIXEL ON THE FPA. IN ADDITION, ALL DATA PROCESSING IS PERFORMED ON A OFF-SENSOR DIGITAL COMPUTER. TO UTILIZE HUMAN-LIKE VISION IN LARGE-STARING-ARRAY HIGH-SPEED ACQUISITION AND TRACKING SENSORS, UNMANNED VEHICLES, OR IN COMMERCIAL MACHINE VISION, IT WILL BE NECESSARY TO DEVELOP A RETINA-LIKE ELE ...
