  1. A HIGH RANGE PARTICLE VELOCITY TRANSDUCER DEVELOPMENT

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

    THERE IS AN ESTABLISHED NEED FOR A SIMPLE ROBUST TRANSDUCER TO MEASURE PARTICLE VELOCITY IN SEVERE BLAST AND SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS SUCH AS NUCLEAR AND HIGH EXPLOSIVE TESTS. A GAGE CONCEPT IS PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPMENT, BASED ON THE PROVEN MEASUREMENT PRINCIPLES USED IN THE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL DX GAGE, BUT RECONFIGURED MECHANICALLY AND ELECTRICALLY TO WITHSTAND THE HARSH SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS. THE CONCEPT RE ...

  2. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE DOWNHOLE SIGNAL CONDITIONING MODULE

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

    HIGH RANGE (200,000 G) ACCELEROMETERS ARE THE ONLY TRANSDUCERS THAT PROVIDE THE REQUIRED LONG-TERM DATA IN THE ENVIRONMENTS OF INTEREST TO THE BLAST AND SHOCK COMMUNITY. THESE GAGES HAVE A VERY LARGE DYNAMIC RANGE AND NOISE OFTEN MASKS THE LATE TIME (BUT EXTREMELY IMPORTANT) DATA. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A CLOSE COUPLED LOGARITHMIC GAIN SIGNAL CONDITIONING SYSTEM THAT WILL CORRECT THE LATE TIME NOIS ...

  3. HOLOGRAPHIC OPTICAL ELEMENT SPATIAL FILTERS

    SBC: Dove Electronics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DOVE ELECTRONICS, INC., WILL DETERMINE WHAT MECHANISMS/PARAMETERS OF ATMOSPHERIC OPTICAL SCINTILLATIONS ARE SIGNIFICANT AND USEFUL IN MEASURING TURBULENCE AND WIND . THE PROPAGA- TION PATH WILL BE CONSIDERED TO BE LINE-OF-SIGHT. AFTER THOROUGH INVESTIGATION AND DEFINITION OF THESE PARAMETERS, HOLOGRAPHIC FILTERING TECHNIQUES FOR THEIR MEASUREMENT WILL BE STUDIED. THESE TECHNIQUES WILL INCORPORTE V ...

  4. Refreshable Locking Tactile Image Array for Accessibility

    SBC: E L I A Life Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    This is an SBIR Phase II proposal to develop a tactile refreshable computer display prototype (TRCD) that will support multiple tactile alphabets (e.g. ELIA, braille, and Roman), multiple lines of text, and graphics to benefit the more than 1.8 million blind Americans. Commercially available TRCDs are expensive (~$12,000, or $19 per actuator), provide only one line of text (with 640 actuators) and ...

  5. Analysis Software for Near-Field Optical Microscopes

    SBC: Field Precision            Topic: N/A

    The near-field scanning optical microscope can supply information on the shape and electrical properties of surfaces with nanometer resolution. The quantitative interpretation of images is difficult because of the difficulty of electromagnetic field solutions in the near-field limit. We propose to supply software to aid in this analysis. The finite-element programs generate two and three-dimension ...

  6. Development of Low-Cost Single-State SQUID Array Amplifiers for High-Resolution Particle and X-Ray Detectors

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    HYPRES is developing a novel wide-bandwidth SQUID-based amplifier chip for cryogenic particle detectors. A novel approach for implementing a wide bandwidth and inexpensive SQUID readout scheme was recently proposed and demonstrated by Wilty and Martinis at NIST. The SQUID chip integrated in this system is based on a single analog SQUID coupled to an array of SQUIDs. HYPRES is presently producin ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF AN EULERIAN FINITE ELEMENT CODE

    SBC: Intelligent Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT NUMERICAL COMPUTATIONS TO DESCRIBE NUCLEAR GROUND SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS, NUCLEAR CRATER FORMATION, IMPACT DYNAMICS AND PENETRATION MECHANISMS PRESENTLY EMPLOY EULERIAN-BASED FINITE DIFFERENCE CODES BECAUSE OF THEIR ABILITY TO MODEL THE MASS FLUX PHENOMENA IN TRACKING MATERIAL MOVEMENT THROUGH THE DISCRETIZED SPACE. THE FINITE DIFFERENCE CODES SUFFER IN COMPARISON TO FINITE ELEMENT CODES, HOWE ...

  8. FAST-RISE HIGH PRESSURE GAUGE FOR LONG-DURATION NUCLEAR AIRBLAST

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    KTECH PROPOSES TO DEVELOP OPTICAL HOPKINSON BAR PRESSURE GAUGES FOR MEASUREMENT OF AIRBLAST ON UNDERGROUND NUCLEAR EVENTS. THE BARS WILL BE MADE OF SINGLE CRYSTAL SAPPHIRE WHICH HAS A MEASURED YIELD STRENGTH IN EXCESS OF 10 GPA. THESE GAUGES WILL HAVE A RISE TIME OF ABOUT 2 US OF DATA. DURING PHASE I, WE WILL CONSTRUCT AND CALIBRATE A STRESS-INDUCED BIREFRINGENCE GAUGE (SIBG) WHICH WOULD NEED NO E ...

  9. New Methods for Evaluating Thermal Performance of Protective Clothing for

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A growing number of fire fighters are suffering third degree burns; this has led to questions about the adequacy of thermal protective performance (TPP) measurements for protective clothing. A new heat flux sensor, whose response approximates that of skin, will be developed to provide better measurements of heat transfer in TPP tests. This sensor will be used with nonlinear parameter estimation an ...

  10. High Power, Mid-Infrared Fiber Supercontinuum Light Source

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Modern supercontinuum (SC) light sources are generated by non-linear interactions between ultrashort laser pulses and optical fibers. These light sources have high brightness and are spatially coherent. Output in near-ultraviolet to near-infrared wavelength ranges has been demonstrated. SC wavelength ranges are constrained by the transmission and dispersion properties of the fibers. Previously, ou ...
