  1. 3D Micromachined Antennas for Submillimeter Sensing

    SBC: SY TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project will model, design, fabricate and test several types of true three-dimensional submillimeter helical antenna arrays. The true 3D helical antennas are an improvement over the planar microstrip antennas because they exhibit wideband impedance characteristics, circular polarization, allow a simple feed network and left and right hand polarizations are easily realized. A new fabri ...

  2. A Compact X-Ray Laser

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The advanced technology described in this proposal promises to increase the performance of laboratory and, specifically, tabletop x-ray lasers by up to an order of magnitude. Such gains in performance coupled with compact technology will lead to the introduction of the world s first table-top, commercial x-ray laser. Tetra proposes to develop an advanced driver for the laboratory laser based upo ...

  3. A New Liquid Crystal Detector for Underwater Acoustic/Optical Imaging

    SBC: SANTEC SYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    A new liquid crystal based detector (acousto-optic sensor) will be developed for operation at frequencies below 500kHkz. The superior acoustic detection sensitivity of the sensor will be demonstrated and its feasibility for providing efficient and cost-effective means of acousto-optic image conversion in underwater acoustic imaging systems will be established.

  5. Advanced Computational Tools for Jet Interaction Phenomena

    SBC: Tetra Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In order to develop faster, lighter, more maneuverable, and more accurate defense interceptors, jet interaction (JI) aerodynamic controls are being pursued to achieve highly effective control authority across large portions of the battlespace. The reliable use of JI to control a kill vehicle (KV) during divert maneuvers or attitude adjustments involves exploitation of the aerodynamic interactions ...

  6. Advanced Metal Powder Manufacture for MLCC Applications

    SBC: NANOCHEM RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Sensors, capacitors, and conducting features such as resistors and capacitors on circuit boards are produced from metal and ceramic powders 1-12 These powders are manufactured by liquid phase precipitation routes which often start with reduction of metal salts or by solid-state routes where solid reactants are mixed, heated and then milled. The solid-state processing is generally repeated several ...

  7. Advanced Projectile Diverters for Strategic Defense and Theater Missile Defense Miniature Interceptor Applications

    SBC: Tg&c Assoc., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses the exploratory development and evaluation of novel thin film and/or monolithic detonators as diverters for guided spinning projectile use. A number of such detonators comprise a diverter technology termed RMDM, (for Ring Matrix Diverter Module) which, along with the SSPG (for Small Spinning Projectile Guidance) seeker, forms the basis for inexpensive miniature guided proje ...

  8. Algorithms for Improved Performance of Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: EAST WEST ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    New methods that will significantly improve the performance of focal plane array systems are proposed . In particular the problem of target track reacquisition ( lost due to cloud clutter effects) will be studied in detail . We propose to investigate the applications of (1) the method of "smart averaging " ( introduced and developed by Boeing) and extensions thereof (2) Probabilistic methods, to t ...

  9. An Agent Architecture for Continuously Evolving Large-Scale Knowledge Bases

    SBC: Sentar, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In order for Knowledge-Based Systems to continue progressing into the mainstream of computing technology, they must become capable of addressing large and complex problems. Conventional systems are achieving this progress by moving to network infrastructure models, distributed systems, and finer granularity that is object-oriented. Analogous architectures are needed for Knowledge-Based Systems so ...
