  1. RAMAN COVERTED MID-IR LASER

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PULSED MID-IR LASER IN THE 3.5 TO 4.1 MICROMETER ATMOSPHERIC TRANSMISSION WINDOW. SUCH SPECTRAL SOURCE IS RELEVANT TO A VARIETY OF TACTICAL APPLICATIONS. THE DF CHEMICAL LASER HAS BEEN THE CHOICE, BUT SUFFERS FROM WASTE FUEL MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS. NO OTHER EFFICIENT DIRECT LASING SOURCE IS AVAILABLE. TO OBTAIN SUCH A SOURCE, WE PROPOSE THE USE O ...

  2. INTERSATELLITE IMAGE COMPARISONS

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A SIX-MONTH RESEARCH PROGRAM IS DESCRIBED TO DEVELOP WAYS TOCOMPARE CONCURRENT DATA SAMPLES FROM A VARIETY OF IMAGING SENSOR SYSTEMS (BOTH VISIBLE AND THERMAL INFARED SPECTRAL BANDS) IN ORDER TO ABET CLOUD ANALYSIS AND INTERPRETATION. SENSORS OF INTEREST INCLUDE THE DMSP OLS, NOAA AVHRR, GOES VISSR, AND LANDSAT TM/MSS. SALIENT SENSOR CHARACTERISTICS WILL BE IDENTIFIED, SAMPLE DATA SETS SELECTED AN ...

  3. ALL SOLID-STATE INTEGRATING DOSIMETER

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RECENTLY, RESEARCH AT SEVERAL GOVERNMENT FACILITIES HAS RESULTED IN SIGNIFICANT ADVANCES IN BOTH THE ELECTRONIC AND DETECTOR ASPECTS OF INTEGRATING RADIATION DOSIMETERS. ONE PARTICULAR APPROACH, THE LOS ALAMOS MULTIDETECTOR RADIATION MONITOR, IS A MICROPROCESSOR BASED INSTRUMENT, CAPABLE OF INTERROGATING SEVERAL DIFFERENT NUCLEAR DETECTORS SIMULTANEOUSLY. ALTHOUGH USING GEIGER TUBES FOR THE GAMMA ...

  4. RAPID NONDESTRUCTIVE DETERMINATION OF RESIN/FIBER CONTENT IN COMPOSITES

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ADVENT OF FIBER REINFORCED COMPOSITES HAS MADE AVAILABLE NEW STRUCTURAL MATERIALS FOR USE IN MILITARY HARDWARE. IN PARTICULAR, ARMOR PANELS MADE FROM FIBERGLASS REINFORCED PLASTICS PROVIDE STRENGTH TO WEIGHT RATIOS SIGNIFICANTLY SUPERIOR TO THOSE MADE FROM METAL PLATE. THESE NEW MATERIALS ARE CRITICAL FOR MAXIMIZING THE PERFORMANCE OF MODER MILITARY ARTICLES SUCH AS HIGH SPEED TANKS AND TROOP ...

  5. SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS TO LITHIUM RESERVE BATTERIES

    SBC: Battery Engineering Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL APPROACH TO THE SAFETY OF RESERVE BATTERIES IS TAKEN, BASED ON A BATTERY DESIGN THAT ELIMINATES THE USE OF A SEPARATE RESERVOIR TO STORE THE ELECTROLYTE DURING INACTIVE LIFE OF THE BATTERY. CELLS WITHOUT THE ELECTROLYTE AND THE ELECTROLYTE ITSELF ARE SITUATED IN A BATTERY CONTAINER, STORED UNDER VACUUM. THE BATTERY IS ACTIVATED SIMPLY BY ADMITTING THE AIR INTO THE CONTAINER. THE AIR FORCES ...

  6. PREPARATION AND PROPERTIES OF PURE SYNTHETIC IRON PYRITES FES2

    SBC: CASTLE TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THERMALLY ACTIVATED LITHIUM ALLOY - IRON PYRITE BATTERIES ARE USED IN A VARIETY OF MILITARY APPLICATIONS. THESE BATTERIES EXHIBIT ABNORMALLY HIGH VOLTAGES DURING THE FIRST SEVERAL MINUTES OF DISCHARGE. THE VOLTAGE TRANSIENT HAS BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH THE PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF THE NATURALLY OCCURRING PYRITE USED IN THE CATHODE. THIS PROGRAM SEEKS TO DEMONSTRATE THAT HIGH PURITY SYNTHETI ...

  7. MODEL-BASED METHODOLOGY FOR TERRAIN-FOLLOWING DISPLAY DESIGN

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDY IS TO EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A MODEL-BASED METHODOLOGY FOR TERRAIN-FOLLOWING DISPLAY DESIGN AND EVALUATION. THE BASIC APPROACH CENTERS ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PILOT/SYSTEM MODEL THAT INTEGRATES GENERAL KNOWLEDGE OF HUMAN PERCEPTION AND PERFORMANCE WITH SPECIFIC KNOWLEDGE OF AIRCRAFT AND AVIONICS CAPABILITIES PECULIAR TO THE TERRAIN-FOLLOWING MISS ...

  8. MORE EFFICIENT UTILIZATION OF FUEL IN LIGHT TRUCKS AND OFF- ROAD

    SBC: Combustion Electromagnetics            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT DIESEL ENGINES SUFFER FROM EXCESSIVE WEIGHT AND SIZE, AND ARE NOT OPTIMIZED WITH RESPECT TO FUEL EFFICIENCY AND MULTI-FUEL CAPABILITY. SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS IN EF EFFICIENCY CAN BE MADE THROUGH REDUCTION IN ENGINE AIR- PUMPING LOSS, HEAT TRANSFER LOSS AND FRICTIONAL LOSS THROUGHLOWER COMPRESSION RATIO (CR) OPEN CHAMBER QUIECENT TYPE COMBUSTION. SUCH OPERATION ALSO LEADS TO SUBSTANTIAL W ...

  9. CVD CDZNTE AS A SUBSTRATE FOR HGCDTE DETECTORS

    SBC: Cvd Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PERFORMANCE OF PHOTOVOLTAIC AND PHOTOCONDUCTIVE HGCDTE INFRARED DETECTOR, FOCAL PLANE ARRAYS IS CURRENTLY LIMITED DUE TO MATERIALS PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE CDTE SUBSTRATES. THE MATERIAL CDZNTE, A PSEUDOBINARY SYSTEM, HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AS A POTENTIALLY SUPERIOR SUBSTRATE MATERIAL DUE TO ITS ABILITY TO PROVIDE A PRECISE LATTICEMATCH TO HGCDTE AND POSSIBLY AN IMPROVED QUALITY, CRYSTALLINE S ...

  10. A SAFE, HIGH-POWER-DENSITY LITHIUM BATTERY

    SBC: ECO ENERGY CONVERSION            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROGRAM RELATES TO THE EVALUATION OF A NEW CATHODE CATALYST IN DIS-TYPE LI/SOC12 CELLS. THIS NEW CA CATALYST HAS BEEN SHOWN TO CHANGE THE CATHODE REACTION MECHANISM AND TO INCREASE BOTH CATHODE RATE (FACTOR OF TEN) AND CAPACITY (FACTOR OF AT LEAST TWO) IN BOBBIN-TYPE LI/SOC12 CELLS. THE NEW MECHANISM RESULTS IN A DECREASE IN CATHODE OVERPOTENTIAL (LESS LIC1) AND A SAFER LI/SOC12 CELL. ...
