  1. Thermally Driven Hot Piston Pulse Tube (Vuilleumier) Refrigerator

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ABILITY TO LIFT HEAT FROM A SELECTED PORTION OF THE SPACECRAFT IS REQUIRED IN A NUMBER OF THERMAL MANAGEMENT TASKS FOR SPACED BASED SENSOR AND WEAPON SYSTEMS. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL DEVELOP THE THEORETICAL AND ANALYTICAL FRAMEWORK TO ASSESS THE UTILITY AND FEASIBILITY OF A HOT PISTON PULSE TUBE VUILLEUMIER REFRIGERATOR. THE EFFORT WILL IDENTIFY A BASELINE APPLICATION FOR THE PROPOSED CONCEPT ...

  2. High Performance Arcjet Engines

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED THAT ADVANCED ARCJET ENGINES CAN BE DEVELOPED USING KNOWN PRINCIPLES FOR ADVANCED NOZZLE DESIGN, ARC ATTACHMENT, INCREASED CHAMBER EFFECTIVE TEMPERATURE AND SO FORTH. SUCH STUDIES ARE PARTIALLY SUPPORTED BY EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS BY RESEARCHERS IN THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION. YET THESE PRINCIPLES RESULT IN INCREASED HEATING OF THE ANODE, AS THE ARC MORE EFFECTIVELY HEATS THE ANODE. THIS CA ...

  3. Thermionic Nuclear Thermal Propulsion Bimodal Reactor

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    BIMODAL REACTORS FOR POWER AND PROPULSION HAVE LONG BEEN OF INTEREST FOR MISSIONS REQUIRINGS BOTH HIGH POWER AND LARGE DELTA-V; E.G., HIGH ALTITUDE, GEOSYNCHRONOUS AND PLANETARY MISSIONS. IT PROPULSIVE THRUST AND ELECTRIC POWER CAN BOTH BE SUPPLIED FROM THE SAME UNIT, A LARGE POTENTIAL SAVINGS CAN OCCUR. SUCH A REACTOR CAN BE DEVELOPED FROM A URANIUM CARBIDE FUELED THERMIONIC REACTOR WITH SINGLE C ...

  4. Bipolar Lead Acid Batteries Using Polymer/carbon Composite Bipolar

    SBC: BIPOLAR TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    WORKERS AT BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY, BIPOLAR TECHNOLOGIES, HAVE DEVELOPED A MATERIAL FOR USE AS A BIPOLAR ELECTRODE SUPPORT WHICH WILL RESULT IN MORE LIGHTWEIGHT, LONGER LIFE BATTERIES. THE ELECTRODE SUPPORT IS A COMPOSITE MATERIAL COMPOSED OF LOW SURFACE AREA CARBON/POLYMER COMPOSITE MATERIAL WHICH HAS LOW ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE, CHEMICALLY STABLE, AND HAS LOW ACTIVITY FOR OXYGEN EVOLUTION, AN UND ...

  5. Range Resolution In Radars Using LFM Envelope Processing

    SBC: DYNETICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DYNETICS PROPOSES A NOVEL PROCESSING TECHNIQUE FOR INCREASING THE RANGE RESOLUTION CAPABILITY OF A LARGE CLASS OF RADARS. THIS TECHNIQUE, LINEAR FREQUENCY MODULATION ENVELOPE PROCESSING (LFMEP), ALLOWS RANGE RESOLUTION FOR LFM SIGNALS THAT IS NOT LIMITED IN THE USUAL WAY BY THE WAVEFORM'S BANDWIDTH. THEORETICALLY, THE TECHNIQUE IS ABLE TO RESOLVE TWO TARGETS SEPARATED BY AS LITTLE AS 10 WAVELENGHT ...

  6. Capillary Discharge X-Ray Laser Driver

    SBC: Multilayer Optics And X-ray            Topic: N/A

    A compact x-ray laser driver with a high repetition rate is the subject of this phase I project. Most existing x-ray laser drivers are huge (1000s of square feet of floor space), expensive ($10,000,000+), have a low repetition rate (1/hr), are complex and require several PhDs to keep them working. Thus applications of present x-ray lasers are limited. In contrast, the proposed laser will occupy on ...

  8. Micro Disk Systems for Inertial Sensing and Optical Beam Control

    SBC: STERLING RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Sarcos is currently developing a technology that can lead to low-cost millimeter-scale gyroscopes, multi axis inertial sensors, and very compact laser scanning devices. This technology, called Micro Disk Systems (MDS), is based on levitating a small disk above a VLSI substrate using electrostatic fields. AC stabilization of the fields ensures that the disk position remains suitable, and field-base ...

  10. SiC Dielectric Capacitor

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH ATTEMPTS TO DEVELOP AN ADVANCED CAPACITOR USING SiC FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE (400 0C), HIGH POWER, AND HIGH DENSITY ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS FOR AIRCRAFT OR AEROSPACE APPLICATION. THE CONVENTIONAL CAPACITOR CONSISTS OF A LARGE NUMBER OF METALLIZED POLYSULFONE FILM CAPACITORS IN PARALLEL ENCLOSED IN A HERMETICALLY SEALED METAL CASE. PROBLEMS WITH ELECTRICAL FAILURE THERMAL FAILURE AN ...
