  1. A 3-D Machine Tool Error Modeling System

    SBC: AUTOMATED PRECISION INC.            Topic: N/A

    In response to the increasing demand for better understanding of the manufacturing processes and the machining systems, a new testing standard--ASME B5.54 and a family of new testing instruments have been developed for evaluating the performances of a variety of CNC machining centers. Because of the advancement and versatility of the new instruments, test data are being collected at a much higher ...

  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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Composing Security Policies

    SBC: VDG, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The research proposed herein in intended to solve two problems, namely (1) to define a specification framework for access control policies that enables policy composition for both centralized and distributed systems in a precise and systematic manner, and (2) to explore the impact of different security architectures on policy composition. Although most commercial systems support applications that ...

  8. Advanced Six-Degree-of-Freedom (6-D) Laser Measurement System

    SBC: AUTOMATED PRECISION INC.            Topic: N/A

    In order to remain competitive in today's global marketplace, U.S. manufacturers are constantly striving to hold tighter and tighter tolerances on the parts that they produce. What this means is that the manufacturer needs to better control the machines that they use, and in order to do that they need an instrument that can quickly and easily characterize the geometric properties of the machines ...

  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 Remarkable Material for Advanced CMC Propulsion Systems

    SBC: Ceramic Composites, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The development of a remarkable Ti3SiC2 material for use in ceramic matrix composite (CMC) fiber coatings and matrix laminates is proposed. This material possesses a myriad of favorable properties for high temperature structural applications - demonstrating machinability, strength, ductility, oxidation resistance and thermal shock resistance never before observed in a single phase material. Prop ...
