  1. ADVANCED FIRE DETECTION BASED ON COMBINED CONVENTIONAL SMOKE AND CO SENSORS

    SBC: HUGHES ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT SMOKE DETECTION TECHNOLOGIES SUFFER FROM SIGNIFICANT FALSE ALARM RATES. THESE PROBLEMS ARE CURRENTLY BEING ADDRESSED BY REDUCING THE SENSITIVITY OF EXISTING PARTICULATE DETECTORS. IN THIS WORK, THE FEASIBILITY OF A COMBINED PARTICULATE AND CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR WILL BE EVALUATED. THE USE OF MULTIPLE FIRE SIGNATURES HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR REDUCING THE FALSE ALARM PROBLEMS WHILE INCREASING ...

  2. Development of a Sweating Thermal Conductive Performance Apparatus for

    SBC: HUGHES ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Fire fighter burn injuries continue to be a frequent problem despite significant advances in protective clothing. A reason for this is the buildup of moisture in fire fighting garments as a result of sweating or fire fighting activities. This buildup of moisture increases the heat transfer through the garment and can result in scald burn injuries as the water is quickly heated. Currently, there is ...

  3. Autonomous Agents for Distributed Problem Solving, Planning and Control

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Intelligent Automation, Incorporated is developing a new innovative approach to concurrent product-process development. The resulting system will also allow integrated development of production planning and scheduling, including external supplier integration. Our approach is based on the paradigm of autonomous agents. The work herein proposed focuses on improvements and extensions to the "Intel ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF A STANDARD CALIBRATION MODEL FOR THE NEAR-INFRARED ANALYSIS OF GASOLINE

    SBC: L T Industries Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF STANDARDS AND TECHNOLOGY (NIST) HAS UNDERTAKEN AN EFFORT TO PROVIDE SOLID STANDARDS AND ALGORITHMS FOR THE STANDARDIZATION OF NEAR-INFRARED SPECTROPHOTOMETERS. THIS EFFORT, COUPLED WITH RECENT ADVANCES IN MATHEMATICAL ALGORITHMS FOR REGRESSION MODEL TRANSFER, HAS CREATED AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF STANDARD CALIBRATION MODELS. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH FOCUSES ON TH ...

  5. HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILMS FOR TRANSFER STANDARD RADIOMETERS.

    SBC: NEOCERA, LLC            Topic: N/A

    HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING (HTSC) FILMS HAVE A LARGE POTENTIAL AS DETECTORS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION. TO BE USEFUL FOR TRANSFER STANDARD RADIOMETERS, IT IS NECESSARY THAT THE HTSC FILM QUALITY SHOULD BE VERY HIGH, BOTH FROM THE VIEW POINTS OF STRUCTURE AND SUPERCONDUCTING PROPERTIES. A MAJOR TASK, IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE HIGH SENSITIVITY, FAST RESPONSE, LOW NOISE LEVELS, AND UNIFORM SPECTRAL ...

  6. A High Sensitivity, High Resolution Imaging Detector for Alpha Particles

    SBC: NewTek            Topic: N/A

    The storage photostimulable phosphor (SPP) technique has been demonstrated to be sensitive to ionization radiation. It is especially suited for detecting alpha particles since the efficiency is practically 100%. In addition to being able to quantify total ionization deposited in a SPP sensor, it also captures the radiation source distribution information in a digital image which can be readily ana ...

  8. Compact Photoconductive-Based Sampling System with Electronic Sampling

    SBC: OptoElectric            Topic: N/A

    Critical issues associated with the design of a rugged, compact "real time" sampling system using photoconductive switches as the signal generator and sample will be investigated. The design concept is based upon an optoelectronic equivalent time sampling principle developed by the Principal Investigator. It involves first the phase locking of the temporal waveform to be measured to the optical pu ...

  9. Hybrid Composites Manufacturing Technology Braiding/Filament Winding

    SBC: PRODUCTION PRODUCTS MANUFACTURING & SALES CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Production Products will develop an integrated, multi-axis preform manufacturing system that will fully integrate, hybridize, and automate the braiding/filament winding preform manufacturing process. This hybridized, automated system will provide significant process improvements and cost savings compared with the current preform manufacturing process developed in the Air Force ManTech Engine and ...

  10. A Broadly Tunable Ultrashort Pulse IR OPO Pumped by a Mode-Locked

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop an innovative, compact ultrafast high brightness laser source, broadly tunable in the infrared for vibrationally-resolved infrared microscopy and other applications. By passive Kerr lens mode-locking of a novel diode-pumped tunable Cr:LiSAF laser, 100fs pulses will be generated at 100 MHZ repetition rate with an average power of 1W. An optical parametric oscillator (OPO) pump ...
