  1. Upgrading of PIC Codes for HPM Tube Design

    SBC: A.J. Devaney Assoc., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The primary objective of this proposal is to develop an understanding from first principles of the macroscopic particle force equation arising from the microscopic particle and field interaction dynamics and to incorporate those effects in a self-consistent state-space (rate equation) PIC calculation. Effective current and charge density time-domain equation models will ...

    SBC: Alaphatech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An important problem in the analysis of ATR systems is quantifying the growth of algorithm requirements, such as storage and processing cost, as the input problem l situation in classical complexity analysis, where the notion of input size is well-defined, there does not currenlty exist a clear notion of input size for the ATR problem. In this effort ...

  3. Compound Core Active Multimode Fiber for High-efficiency Fi

    SBC: Altair Center, Llc.            Topic: N/A

    Altair Center proposes to develop a novel and innovative compound-core multimode active flber for high-efficiency fiber laser systems capable to operate in a single-mode regime. The compound multimode core of the fiber is especially designed in such a way to support propagation of a higher order mode exhibiting a sharp peak of its field in the central region of the core. The sharp-peak mode extrac ...

  4. Liquid Crystalline Adhesives with Zero Shrinkage

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed program will develop a liquid crystalline Adhesive with Zero Shrinkage, for bonding of airframe joints. Aspen Systems, Inc. is currently in the process of developing a new class of epoxide resins. These new epoxy materials are based on orderable, low molecular weight liquid crystalline structures with flexible, difunctional end chains. The structural ordering of the liquid crystallin ...

  5. Microsatellite Propulsion Using EST Technology

    SBC: Electron Power Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase I proposal is aimed at development of propulsion systems for EKV and divert. propulsion systems for low-mass interceptors that will use Vector Thrust Pulsed Detonation Rocket Engine (VTPDRE) technology. Use of PDRE will increase power density, enhance modularity, and reduce cost. Further improvements will be realized by introducing configurations with multiple PDREs and non-mechani ...

  6. Thermal Shock Resistant Hypersonic Sapphire Composite Infra

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

    Foster-Miller will demonstrate a truly innovative previously unexplored route to fabricate high temperature 3 to 5 micron infrared (IR) optical composite materials for IR window and dome applications. Our approach will provide an IR sapphire composite material that will have thermal shock; transmission, absorption and emission, strength, and durability characteristic that will be enhanced ...

  7. High Power Gallium Nitride HEMT Prepared by Ion Implantatio

    SBC: Implant Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Implant Sciences Corporation proposes to develop a superior power transistor design based on ion implanted nitride semiconductor materials which will be produced at Howard University. Our lateral device design features an inverted GaN channel with the AlGaN charge supply layer doped by ion implantation. Ion implantation allows selective area doping, which will let us create for the first time an u ...

  8. Tooling-Free MMC Casting by Combining 3-D Printing of Ceram


    Three-dimensional printed preforms will be used as mold patterns for MMCC's high-density, pressure resistant, castable refractory. Hard tooling will be eliminated from the Advanced Pressure Infiltration Casting process (APIC ). Cost for Al/Sic electronic housings will be slashed 75% over conventional pressure casting. Complex parts will be easily manufactured. Design modifications can be quickly i ...

    SBC: Kopin Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The primary objective of this work is to determne the feasibility ofusing nitrogen doping to lower the trun-on voltage and improve the overall performance of GaAs-bsed heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs) for high frequency microwave applications. Recent reports on the properties of GaAs in which small amounts of N have been added indicate that GaAsN alloys possess a number of striking prope ...

  10. Novel Mathematical/Computational Approaches to Image Exploi


    We propose to develop a unifying framework and formalism for the rapid and novel design and implementation of new families of image transforms based on the theory of groups and diffraction geometry. Our approach calls on such high-level imaging tools as graphs and aperiodic tilings to relate image data geometry with group structures on image data indexing sets and complex group algebra theory to d ...
