  1. Quantitative Techniques for Surface Characterization and Solderability Assessments of OSP- Coated Printed Wiring Board

    SBC: ECI TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Objectives of this project include the development of electrochemical techniques for measurement of (i) thinckness of OSP coatings, (ii) amount and type of copper oxides within and under the OSP coating, (iii) protective effectiveness of OSP coatings, and (iv) solderability prediction of OSP-coated PWBs. We will evaluate the effect of major parameters of the coating, storage, and soldering proces ...

  3. A Dynamic Bulk Modulus/PVT Apparatus for Characterization of Polymers

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

    Currently, advanced tools for modeling injection modeling of thermoplastics and predicting formed part dimensional stability and residual stress content use the static bulk modulus of the polymer at the temperatures and pressures associated with the molding process. The short cycle times associated with injection molding, however, could be more accurately modeled if dynamic bulk modulus data were ...

  5. The Underwater Stereoscopic Measurement System

    SBC: Xybion Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Xybion Corporation will develop a video-camera based Underwater Stereoscopic Measurement System (USMS) for making routine size estimates of close range objects (0.3 - 8.0 meters from the cameras.) The USMS will build on a set of proprietary algorithms that were developed by Xybion for stereoscopic imaging and are incorporated in a commercial software package. The system will consist of a rigid s ...

  6. Light Weight High Voltage Power System

    SBC: 3tech Corp            Topic: N/A

    3Tech proposes in the phase I effort to provide a detailed feasibility report analyzing the existing high voltage DC power supplies in the communications aircraft for weight reduction possibilities. In addition, 3Tech proposes a novel multiphase High Voltage Power Converter to Navy to power the Radio Frequency Power Amplifiers in the aircraft. The power converter is based on modern high frequen ...

  8. Propulsion Capability for 3-Inch Submarine Countermeasures

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

    An operational requirement is projected for an inexpensive, mobile, submarine acoustic countermeasure capability. A significant tactical advantage is gained by putting as much distance as possible between the submarine (launch platform) and the mobile countermeasure. An additional advantage is gained if the submarine has the ability to place the ADC between itself and the torpedo threat. Adding ...

  9. Advanced Gun Design for Naval Vessels


    The design of vertically firing gun is merely a simplified version of a normal large caliber gun system. The fixed orientation of the weapon simplifies the ammunition feed and loading system as well as eliminating the need for an equilibration The challenges of the current proposed system are presented by rate of fire, vertical height limitation, structural required to accomodate high loads o ...

    SBIR Phase I 1996 Department of DefenseNavy


    The goal of this program is to develop and implement optimal spectral signature detection techniques which provide automated detection and identification of materials in hyperspectral image sequences. The requirement to detect, identify and discriminate materials is a common theme in many applications of imaging spectrometry. In general, materials of interest are often smaller than the spa ...
