  1. GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM ATTITUDE CONTROL

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

    A PROTOTYPE GUIDANCE AND CONTROL SYSTEM SENSOR FOR DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS IS PROPOSED. THIS GUIDANCE SUBSYSTEM SENSOR WILL USE THE GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM (GPS) SATELLITE CONSTELLATION FOR BOTH POSITION AND ATTITUDE DETERMINATION OF THE DEW. THIS GPS ATTITUDE DETERMINATION SYSTEM CAN BE CAN BE APPLIED FOR POINTING AND ATTITUDE CONTROL OF MANY TYPES OF DEWS, INCLUDING GROUND, AIR, AND SPACE BASE ...

  2. LASER ALLOYING OF PLASMA-DEPOSITED COATINGS FOR PROTECTION AGAINST ATOMIC OXYGEN

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    ATOMIC OXYGEN-INDUCED DEGRADATION OF MATERIALS IN LOW EARTH ORBIT IS A PROBLEM OF GREAT CONCERN IN THE DEPLOYMENT OF SATELLITES, REFLECTORS AND MIRROR AND ANTENNA STRUCTURES. IN PARTICULAR, THE DEGRADATION OF THIN CARBON-CARBON COMPOSITE MATERIALS BY ATOMIC OXYGEN RESTRICTS THE OPERATIONAL LIFE AND BATTLE-READINESS OF THIS OTHERWISE STRUCTURALLY ADVANTAGEOUS MATERIAL. ALTHOUGH SEVERAL METHODS ARE ...

  3. MEASURING MAGNETIC FIELD STRUCTURE BEHIND A PROJECTILE

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    DMS (DILUTED MAGNETIC SEMICONDUCTOR) CRYSTAL WILL MEASURE MAGNETIC FIELD STRENGTHS OF A HYPERVELOCITY GUN (HVG), WITH UNIQUELY HIGH DIRECTIVITY AND SPATIAL RESOLUTION, UNDER A HARSH ELECTRO-MAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI) CONDITION. KNOWLEDGE OF THE MAGNETIC FIELD STRUCTURE BEHIND AND AHEAD OF A PROJECTILE IS ESSENTIAL FOR DESIGNING AN EFFICIENT HVG OF SDI INTEREST, ALTHOUGH EMI MAKES SUCH A MEASUREME ...

  4. HEALTH MONITORING AND CONTROL SYSTEM RECONFIGURATION FOR LARGE SPACE TRUSSES USING OPTICAL FIBER SENSORS

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    THE NEXT GENERATION SPACECRAFT WILL BE MADE OF NEW STRONG, LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS WITH LITTLE DAMPING SO THAT ACTIVE VIBRATION SUPPRESSION IS ESSENTIAL. THESE SPACECRAFT, FUNCTIONING IN A REMOTE HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT WHERE IMMEDIATE REPAIR IS PRECLUDED, MAY SUSTAIN DAMAGE FROM EXTERNAL DISTURBANCES AND AGING. TO ADDRESS THE OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS OF FUTURE SPACECRAFT, THIS PROGRAM IS DEVELOPING AN ...

  6. CRYOGENICALLY COOLED CONTROLLED SWITCH FOR SPACE POWER CONDITIONING

    SBC: Hmj Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A SOLID STATE SWITCH FOR OPERATION AT CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURE IS BEING DEVELOPED THAT WILL PROVIDE MULTI-MEGAWATT POWER CONDITIONING IN THE RAPIDLY EXPANDING FIELD OF LOW TEMPERATURE ELECTRONICS. SINCE EXISTING CONTROLLED SWITCHES ARE NOT DIRECTLY SUITABLE FOR CRYOGENIC OPERATION, ONLY A FUNDAMENTAL APPROACH CAN DEVELOP STRUCTURES CAPABLE OF LOW LOSS AND RELIABLE OPERATION IN THE TEMPERATURE RANGE B ...

  7. A SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATOR FOR OPTICAL SIGNAL PROCESSING

    SBC: Interferometrics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OPTICS, DUE TO ITS INHERENT PARALLELISM, HIGH TEMPORAL-SPATIAL BANDWIDTH AND NON-INTERFERING COMMUNICATIONS, HAS THE POTENTIAL OF BREAKING THROUGH THE PERFORMANCE BARRIERS FACED BY CONVENTIONAL TECHNOLOGIES AND IS THEREFORE A CANDIDATE FOR FUTURE PARALLEL COMPUTERS. ONE OF THE MAIN NEEDS IS EFFICIENT, LOW ENERGY, OPTICAL GATES AND/OR ELECTRO-OPTIC CONVERTORS WHICH CAN BE MANUFACTURED IN LARGE QUAN ...

  8. MASSIVELY PARALLEL COMPUTER BASED, ANALYTICAL PREDICTIVE TECHNIQUES FOR CONTROL/STRUCTURE INTERACTION ANALYSIS

    SBC: Mrj Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS RESEARCH PROJECT IS TO IDENTIFY AND/OR FORMULATE EFFICIENT METHODS AND ASSOCIATED COMPUTATIONAL ALGORITHMS FOR PREDICTING THE DYNAMIC PERFORMANCE AND STABILITY CHARACTERISTICS OF CONTROL AUGMENTED, DAMPING ENHANCED, LARGE SPACE STRUCTURES IN A MASSIVE DATA PARALLEL ENVIRONMENT. IT IS ASSUMED THAT THE STRUCTURES ARE TO ACT IN CONCERT WITH ON-BOARD DISTRIBUTED CONTROLLERS AS WELL ...

  10. CDTE OPTICAL COMPONENTS IN LONG WAVELENGTH INFRARED SYSTEMS

    SBC: Xacton Corp            Topic: N/A

    INFRARED SYSTEMS ARE NEEDED FOR A VARIETY OF DEFENSE RELATED APPLICATIONS, SUCH AS: SURVEILLANCE, TARGET DETECTION, ACQUISITION AND TRACKING, MISSILE GUIDANCE, ETC. FOR MANY APPLICATIONS SUCH AS THOSE INVOLVING COLD-DIM TARGETS, THESE SYSTEMS NEED TO OPERATE IN THE VERY LONG WAVELENGTH REGION OF THE INFRARED SPECTRUM, E.G. 15-35 MICRONS CUTOFF. IN THIS WAVELENGTH REGION, THE AVAILABILITY OF SUITAB ...
