  1. A COMPACT LINDE-HAMPSON CRYOCOOLER FOR 20K OPERATION

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL COVERS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A CRYOCOOLER WITH A REFRIGERATION CAPACITY OF 0.75 WATT AT 20 KELVIN. THE CRYOGENIC UNIT WILL HAVE A VOLUME OF LESS THAN 16 CM3, AND CAN PROVIDE COOLING FOR 5 MINUTES AFTER A COOLDOWN PERIOD OF LESS THAN 20 SECONDS. THE CRYOCOOLER USES A NEW FABRICATION TECHNIQUE THAT LEADS TO A HIGH RELATIVE EFFICIENCY WITH A MINIMUM VOLUME.

  4. REAL-TIME RADOME ERROR COMPENSATION

    SBC: Cas Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NEW CONTROL TECHNOLOGY IS AVAILABLE WHICH CAN BE USED TO DESIGN AN ADAPTIVE, REAL-TIME COMPENSATOR TO COUNTER THE EFFECTS OF RADOME BORESIGHT ERRORS IN RF HOMING MISSILES. THIS CONTROL THEORY MAKES USE OF THE FACT THAT RADOME ERRORS ARE NOT COMPLETELY RADOM, BUT MAY BE DESCRIBED BY THE WEIGHTED SUM OF A FINITE NUMBER OF FUNCTIONS WHOSE WEIGHTING COEFFICIENTS ARE ASSUMED PIECEWISE CONSTANT, BUT O ...

  6. THREE-DIMENSIONAL NON-LINEAR PHASED ARRAY CONCEPT FEASIBILITY STUDY

    SBC: Electro Magnetic            Topic: N/A

    A NEW APPROACH TO PHASED ARRAY ANTENNA DESIGN IS PROPOSED, BASED ON UNPUBLISHED WORK AT EMA, WHICH PREDICTS THE POSSIBILITY OF PRODUCING GIGAWATTS OF EFFECTIVE RADIATED POWER. PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS BASED ON THE NEW DESIGN CONCEPTS INDICATE AS MUCH AS 80 DB INCREASE IN POWER OVER CONVENTIONAL PHASED ARRAY DESIGNS MAY BE ACHIEVABLE. EMA'S CONCEPTS ALLOW ENERGY TO BE STORED ON THE ANTENNA THROUGH A ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF APPROXIMATIONS FOR A FAST-METHOD OF MOMENTS TECHNIQUE BASED ON NORMAL MODES

    SBC: Electro Magnetic            Topic: N/A

    A FAST NEW APPROXIMATION FOR THE METHOD OF MOMENTS SOLUTION OF ELECTROMAGNETIC RESPONSE PROBLEMS IS PROPOSED. THE NEW APPROACH IS BASED ON SEPARATION OF THE PROBLEM INTO A GLOBAL RESPONSE SET DEPENDENT ON NORMAL MODES, AND A LOCAL RESPONSE DEPENDENT ON GEOMETRICAL OPTICS. THE EFFORTS OF NEGLECTING THE LOCAL RESPONSE TERM ALONG WITH OTHER APPROXIMATIONS WILL BE INVESTIGATED TO QUALITFY THE RESULTIN ...

  8. GASEOUS TRITIUM LIGHT SOURCE

    SBC: Energy Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROGRAM IS ORGANIZAED TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING A GASEOUS TRITIUM LIGHT SOURCE (GTLS) AS A SELF POWERED DEVICE TO PROVIDE CONTINUOUS ILLUMINATION INSIDE A ROCKET MOTOR ARM-FIRE DEVICE FOR A PERIOD OF 15 YEARS. THE SOURCE WILL ILLUMINATE SAFE/ARMED (S/A) SYMBOLS WITH COLOR CODED LIGHT. AN IMAGE QUALITY FIBER OPTIC BUNDLE WILL ALLOW THE IMAGE OF THE INDICATOR TO BE OBSERVED BY ORD ...

  10. A SIMPLE SAFETY ARMING SWITCH

    SBC: Enfitek Inc            Topic: N/A

    A SIMPLE SAFETY ARMING SWITCH FOR GUIDED MISSILES CAN BE BUILT AROUND AN ACCELEROMETER AND INTEGRATING CIRCUIT. IN GENERAL, DURING THE LAUNCH BOOST PHASE, THE ACCELERATION OF A MISSILE INCREASES TO A MAXIMUM JUST BEFORE BURNOUT. CHARACTERISTIC ACCELERATION PROFILES FOR A PARTICULAR MISSILE ARE DEPENDENT UPON FUEL TAILORING AND MISSION REQUIREMENTS; I.E. AIR-TO-AIR MISSION, GROUND-TO-AIR MISSION, E ...
