  1. Validation and security verification using a holographic phase mask correlator

    SBC: Accuwave Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Accuwave Corporation will study the feasibility of a volume holographic, phase-encoded optical image correlator for credit card and document validation and security application. Fourier transform holograms of a phase-encoded input image are stored using wavelength multiplexed holographic gratings in a photorefractive crystal. High spatial resolution images can be sotred with low crosstalk using ...

  2. Rotorcraft Model Enhancements to Support Land and Sea-Based Testing and Operational Analysis

    SBC: ADVANCED ROTORCRAFT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We Propose to enhance rotorcraft simulation model to support land and sea-based flight testing and operational analysis. The model enhancement will resolve the long-time perplexing problems related to the fundamental simulation requirement for an accurate prediction of rotorcraft response in full range of flight. The solution proposed is to improve the widely used finite state dynamic wake ...

  3. Trivalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: Applied Electroless Concepts,            Topic: N/A

    A new Navy process substitutes low toxicity trivalent chromium for toxic hexavalent chromium in aluminum conversion coatings. Further work is needed to investigate variations on the original formulations, with special consideration to formulas useful with common alloys of aluminum. Both a yellow and a blue-bright conversion film are desirable. Fractional Factorial Experimental Designs will be used ...

  4. Measurement of Fuel Spray Interactions

    SBC: COMPLERE INC            Topic: N/A

    Quantitative measurement of spray patterns is of fundamental importance in the development of efficient and practical aerospace propulsion and power systems. At present, there is considerable interest in obtaining measurements of fuel and air motions in both fuel droplet and solid particle combustors since the velocity of the fuel relative to the gas strongly influences the local oxygen supply, t ...

  7. Correlation System for Security Validation and Verification using an Encoded Phase Mask

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Verification technologies are needed to confirm the identify of perso nnel and to validate the authenticity of manufactured products. Rapid advances in computers, printers, scanners, and copiers have made it increasingly simple to reproduce security emblems traditionally used for verification and authentication. Even holograms, once considered impenetrable, are now routinely counterfeited using t ...
