  1. Thermally Driven Hot Piston Pulse Tube (Vuilleumier) Refrigerator

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ABILITY TO LIFT HEAT FROM A SELECTED PORTION OF THE SPACECRAFT IS REQUIRED IN A NUMBER OF THERMAL MANAGEMENT TASKS FOR SPACED BASED SENSOR AND WEAPON SYSTEMS. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL DEVELOP THE THEORETICAL AND ANALYTICAL FRAMEWORK TO ASSESS THE UTILITY AND FEASIBILITY OF A HOT PISTON PULSE TUBE VUILLEUMIER REFRIGERATOR. THE EFFORT WILL IDENTIFY A BASELINE APPLICATION FOR THE PROPOSED CONCEPT ...

  2. High Performance Arcjet Engines

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED THAT ADVANCED ARCJET ENGINES CAN BE DEVELOPED USING KNOWN PRINCIPLES FOR ADVANCED NOZZLE DESIGN, ARC ATTACHMENT, INCREASED CHAMBER EFFECTIVE TEMPERATURE AND SO FORTH. SUCH STUDIES ARE PARTIALLY SUPPORTED BY EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS BY RESEARCHERS IN THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION. YET THESE PRINCIPLES RESULT IN INCREASED HEATING OF THE ANODE, AS THE ARC MORE EFFECTIVELY HEATS THE ANODE. THIS CA ...

  4. VIRTUAL PROTOTYPING TOOLS FOR SEMICONDUCTOR FABRICATION EQUIPMENT

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE EXISTING METHODOLOGY OF DESIGN AND FABRICATION OF SEMICONDUCTOR MANUFACTURING EQUIPMENT IS AN EXPENSIVE AND TIME CONSUMING PROCESS. TO KEEP PACE WITH THE RAPIDLY ADVANCING SEMICONDUCTOR INDUSTRY, IT IS NECESSARY TO DEVELOP A COMPUTER BASED ENVIRONMENT TO QUICKLY SIMULATE THE FEATURES OF THE MANUFACTURING EQUIPMENT BEFORE IT IS TURNED INTO A PHYSICAL PROTOTYPE. APART FROM ACHIEVING CONSIDERABLE ...

  5. Range Resolution In Radars Using LFM Envelope Processing

    SBC: DYNETICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DYNETICS PROPOSES A NOVEL PROCESSING TECHNIQUE FOR INCREASING THE RANGE RESOLUTION CAPABILITY OF A LARGE CLASS OF RADARS. THIS TECHNIQUE, LINEAR FREQUENCY MODULATION ENVELOPE PROCESSING (LFMEP), ALLOWS RANGE RESOLUTION FOR LFM SIGNALS THAT IS NOT LIMITED IN THE USUAL WAY BY THE WAVEFORM'S BANDWIDTH. THEORETICALLY, THE TECHNIQUE IS ABLE TO RESOLVE TWO TARGETS SEPARATED BY AS LITTLE AS 10 WAVELENGHT ...

  7. Fault Tolerant High Speed Network Services

    SBC: Intellect Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The predominant concern of evolving high-speed network architectures is fault tolerance. High-speed networks will expereince a variety of faults, such as link or node failures, excessive buffer overflow due to faulty flow and congestion control mechanisms, and partial failure of the switching fabric. The main goal of this research is to increase the availability of essential network services witho ...

  8. HIGH SPEED IMAGE CAPTURE OF THE 3-D PEEL POINT GEOMETRY DURING PAYOUT

    SBC: MORGAN RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    AN ACCURATE KNOWLEDGE OF THE MAXIMUM FIBER STRESS OCCURRING DURING PAYOUT IS CRITICAL TO IMPROVE THE RELIABILITY OF CURRENT AND FUTURE DISPENSER DESIGNS FOR FIBER OPTIC GUIDED VEHICLES. THE FIBER DEFORMATIONS OCCURRING AT THE PEEL POINT ARE A DIRECT INDICATION OF THE MAXIMUM FIBER STRESSES UNDER NORMAL PAYOUT CONDITIONS. IN ADDITION, THE FIBER DEFORMATIONS AT THE PEEL POINT PROVIDE AN INVALUABLE M ...

  9. Aerospace System Applications Of Micromachine Technologies

    SBC: OPTICAL E.T.C., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Aerospace systems undergo environmental stressing which ultimately limit their useful life. Empirical rules and constant inspection are required for commercial and military aircraft because real-time data are not known for the high-cost systems. This effort proposes imbedded microelectronic and microelectromechanical devices to constantly monitor aerospace systems and a life-cycle analysis of the ...
