  1. A REAL-TIME 3-D CLOUD SIMULATION SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Aeromet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR IMPLEMENTING A REALTIME, THREE-DIMENSIONAL CLOUD MODEL TO SUPPORT REENTRY VEHICLE TEST OPERATIONS. AN EXISTING RESEARCH CLOUD MODEL WOULD BE INTERFACED TO A MESOSCALE ATMOSPHERIC MODEL. THE COMBINED MODELING SYSTEM WOULD BE ADAPTED FOR USE AT THE KWAJALEIN MISSILE RANGE (KMR). FORECASTS OF DETAILED CLOUD FEATURES SUCH AS WATER CONTENT, RADAR REFLECTI ...

  3. ON-BOARD AIRCRAFT EMBEDDED TRAINING CAPABILITY

    SBC: Applications Resources Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH WILL INVESTIGATE PERFORMANCE MEAUREMENT TECHNIQUES AND COMPUTER SIMULATION TECHNIQUES REQUIRED FOR AN ON-BOARD AIRCRAFT "EMBEDDED TRAINING" CAPABILITY APPLICABLE TO BOTH TRAINING AND MUNITION CONCEPT EVALUATION. DATA REQUIREMENTS FOR ON-BOARD SIMULATION OF THE MUNITIONS TO ACCOMPLISH SIMULATED LAUNCH, FLYOUT AND TERMINAL ENGAGEMENT WILL BE DETERMINED. AVAILABILITY OF REAL-WORLD INPUT ...

  4. STOCHASTIC METHODS IN PROTECTIVE STRUCTURES

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A PHASE I EFFORT IS PROPOSED TO INTEGRATE PREVIOUS WORK AND DEVELOP THE NEEDED RESEARCH BASE TO ASSESS AND DEVELOP STOCHASTIC METHODS FOR PROTECTIVE DESIGN FOR NON-NUCLEAR WEAPONS. THE CORNERSTONE OF THIS EFFORT WILL BE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A RELIABILITY-BASED DESIGN (RBD) PROCEDURE. THERE ARE SEVERAL WELL DEVELOPED RBD PROCEDURES (LOAD AND RESISTANCE FACTORS, FIRST-ORDER SECOND-MOMENT, AND MONTE CA ...

  5. CONTROLLED COOLDOWN OF AIRCRAFT TURBINE ENGINES

    SBC: Cef Industries Inc            Topic: N/A

    AN "INTELLIGENT" MECHANISM TO CONTROL AIRCRAFT TURBINE ENGINE COOLDOWN UTILIZING INTEGRAL SENSORS, LOGIC, DRIVE AND FAIL-SAFE, FOR EXTENDING THE PERFORMANCE LIFE OF AIRCRAFT GAS TURBINE ENGINES IS PROPOSED. AIRCRAFT TURBINE ENGINES ARE PRECISELY MADE AND CONTROLLED MECHAISMS UNTIL SHUTDOWN. THEN, HEAT SOAK AND SOAKBACK PHENOMEN DELETERIOUSLY AFFECT ENGINE PERFORMANCE, LIFE, MAINTENANCE COSTS AND L ...

  6. LOW-COST INDICATOR AND DOSIMETER FOR WARFARE GASES

    SBC: Coal Gas Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO CONDUCT PRELIMINARY TESTS ON A NOVEL CHEMISTRY WHICH COULD RESULT IN THE PRODUCTION OF A LOW COST WAFER WHICH CHANGES COLOR UPON EXPOSURE TO WARFARE GASES (WG). SIMILAR WAFERS WHICH WE DEVELOPED FOR OTHER GASES ARE ABOUT 2" X 1" X 1/16" AND WEIGH ABOUT 2.3 GM. THESE CHROMOSENSE (TM) WAFERS CAN DETECT HYDROGEN SULFIDE, ETC. IN 10-30 SEC. AT CONCENTRATIONS OF THE ...

  7. EGRESS BORING MACHINE CUTTER DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Cobbs Engineering Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROGRAM GOALS FOR THE EGRESS BORING MACHINE REQUIRE A ROCK BORING SYSTEM WHICH WILL PRODUCE PENETRATION RATES OVER TEN TIMES GREATER THAN THOSE PRODUCED TO DATE UNDER SIMILAR CONDITIONS. THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A CUTTER SYSTEM WHICH USES THE CONCEPT OF AN INTERRUPTED DISC CUTTER. IT WILL TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF INDEXING BETWEEN CRATERS TO MAXIMIZE ROCK REMOVAL WHILE MINIMIZING THRUST REQUIR ...

  8. ADAPTIVE GRID TECHNIQUES FOR USE IN COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS

    SBC: Computational Mechan            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT FOCUSES ON THE TWO MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES OF ALL OF COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS: 1) HOW GOOD ARE THE NUMERICAL ANSWERS OBTAINED IN A COMPUTATION? AND 2) HOW CAN THE BEST POSSIBLE ANSWERS BE OBTAINED FOR A FIXED AND LIMITED COMPUTATIONAL EFFORT, BUDGET, OR COMPUTING CAPABILITY? IN GENERAL TERMS THE ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS ARE 1) TO DETERMINE RELIABLE A-POSTERIORI ESTIMATES OF ERROR ...

  9. ADAPTIVE NULLING BY ELECTRICAL SURFACE CONTROL OF A REFLECTOR ANTENNA

    SBC: COMPUTER SCIENCE INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO FORMING A NULL IN THE SECONDARY PATTERN OF A REFLECTOR ANTENNA IS DEVELOPED BY THIS PROJECT. AN ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLABLE REFLECTIVE SURFACE BEING DEVELOPED ON A NASA SBIR IS THE STARTING POINT FOR THE WORK. THIS PROJECT EXTENDS THE PERFORMANCE OF THE SURFACE SO THAT IT IS USEFUL AS A NULL FORMER. THE RESULT IS CONSIDERABLY REDUCED COST OF NULL STEERING ANTENNAS. THE DE ...

  10. THE PREPARATION OF NEW PERFLUOROPOLYETHER FLUIDS EXHIBITING EXCELLENT OXIDATIVE STABILITY

    SBC: Exfluor Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE GOAL OF THIS RESEACH PROGRAM IS TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THE RELATION-SHIP BETWEEN OXIDATIVE STABILITY AND STRUCTURE AS IT RELATES TO PERFLUOROPOLYETHERS. WE INTEND TO USE DIRECT FLUORINATION TECHNOLOGY TO PRODUCE SEVERAL NEW PERFLUOROPOLYETHER FLUIDES WHICH CONTAIN UNIQUE ARRANGEMENTS OF CARBON AND OXYGEN IN THE BACKBONE OF THE POLYMER AS WELL AS UNUSUAL PENDANT GROUPS. THE DIRECT FLUORINATION PR ...
