  5. STEAM GENERATOR WITH HEAT PIPE HEAT EXCHANGER

    SBC: DYNATHERM CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP A FIELD STEAM GENERATOR CAPABLE OF USING ANY UNTREATED WATER. THE PROPOSED CONCEPT UTILIZES HEAT PIPES AS INTERMEDIATE HEAT TRANSFER ELEMENTS BETWEEN THE BURNER AND THE BOILER SECTIONS. THE INCORPORATION OF HEAT PIPES CONVERTS THE STEAM GENERATOR FROM A "WATER TUBE" TO A "FIRE TUBE" BOILER. STEAM LOCOMOTIVES HAVE USED THIS DESIGN FOR OVER A CENTU ...

  6. GROWTH AND CHARACTERIZATION OF CD(1-X)ZN(X)TE SINGLE CRYSTALS

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: N/A

    MERCURY CADMIUM TELLURIDE (MCT) HAS EMERGED AS THE SUPERIOR MATERIAL FOR INFRARED APPLICATIONS IN IMPORTANT 3-5 MICROMETER AND 8-13 MICROMETER RANGES CORRESPONDING TO ATMOSPHERIC WINDOWS. BULK GROWTH METHODS CANNOT PROVIDE DEVICE GRADE LARGE AREA CRYSTALS OF THIS MATERIAL. HENCE, IN ORDER TO REALIZE THE STATE-OF-THE-ART LARGE AREA DEVICES, EPITAXIAL GROWTH IS THE ONLY PLAUSIBLE TECHNIQUE AT THE PR ...

  10. A PASSIVE OPTICAL SCINTILLOMETER USING A NATURALLY ILLUMINATED SCENE

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: N/A

    ATMOSPHERIC TURBULENCE MEASUREMENT IS IMPORTANT TO ARMY ARTILLERY, AVIATION OPERATIONS AND PREDICTION OF LASER AND CHEMICAL WEAPONS EFFECTS. ATMOSPHERIC TURBULENCE-INDUCED OPTICAL SCINTILLATIONS HAVE LONG BEEN REALIZED THAT OBSERVATIONS OF THE TWINKLING OF STARS AND THE MOTION OF STELLITE IMAGES YIELD INFORMATION ABOUT THE TURBULENCE AND THE WIND SPEED IN THE UPPER ATMOSPHERE. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRES ...
