  6. HIGH REPETITION RATE GLOW DISCHARGE CLOSING SWITCH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH POWER, HIGH REPETITION RATE CLOSING SWITCHES HAS RECENTLY BECOME IMPORTANT FOR MANY PULSED POWER APPLICATIONS. HISTORICALLY, HIGH REPETITION RATE SWITCHES FOR PULSED POWER APPLICATIONS HAVE EITHER BEEN SPARK GAPS OR THYRATRONS. THYRATRONS HAVE HIGH REPETITION RATES, BUT ARE LIMITED TO LOW VOLTAGES AND LOW CURRENT. CONVERSELY, SPARK GAPS CAN CARRY HIGH CURRENTS AND STAND-OFF ...

  7. ENHANCED ELF COMPUTER CODES DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    MANY OF THE SYSTEMS FOR SDI INVOLVE PULSE POWER AND HIGH VOLTAGE SYSTEMS, INCLUDING LASERS, PARTICLE BEAM ACCELERATORS, AND RAILGUNS. ONE OF THE SIGNIFICANT PROBLEMS YET TO BE SOLVED IN DEVELOPING OPERATIONAL SDI SPACECRAFT IS THE MANAGEMENT OF ELECTRIC FIELDS WITHIN THE SPACECRAFT, THE PRIMARY WEAPON SYSTEM, AND ITS POWER SUPPLY AND CONDITIONING EQUIPMENT. THE ELF CODES UNIQUELY HAVE THE ABILITY ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW SEM INSTRUMENT FOR MEASURING SHOCK EFFECTS IN BRITTLE MATERIALS

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

    THE MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF BRITTLE MATERIALS UNDER HIGH STRAIN RATE LOADINGS IS A MAJOR CONCERN TO THE AIR FORCE IN THEIR DEVELOPMENT OF LOW COST AND HIGHLY SURVIVABLE MATERIALS. THE ABILITY TO VIEW THE MICROSTRUCTURE EVOLUTION DURING SHOCK LOADING IS CRITICAL TO GAINING A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE MATERIAL DUE TO RATE EFFECT. AT PRESENT NO DIAGNOSTIC INSTRUMENTATION IS AVAILABLE TO MAKE REALT ...

  9. ARMAMENT RESEARCH ANALYSIS

    SBC: Amparo Corp.on            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. AIR FORCE HAS A NEED TO DEVELOP A GREATER CAPABILITY OF ANALYZING MUNITIONS/ARMAMENT INTERACTIONS. IT IS PROPOSED THAT THE "HULL CODE" BE MODIFIED IN A WAY THAT WILL SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE ITS ABILITY TO DO THIS. THE IMPLEMENTATION OF VARIOUS NUMERIC IMPROVEMENTS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED AND A TWO DIMENSIONAL PROOF OF CONCEPT TEST WILL BE CONDUCTED.

  10. USER-ORIENTED MICROWAVE COUPLING SIMULATION CODE UTILIZING CAD BASED EXPERT SYSTEM ONN IBM PC-AT COMPATIBLES

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    MICROWAVE COUPLING SIMUATION CODES (MCCS) ARE REQUIRED FOR MODELING SUSCEPTIBILITY OF MILITARY SYSTEMS TO HIGH POWER MICROWAVES (HPM). MCCS ASSIST IN DETECTION OF SYSTEM WEAKNESSES TO HPM AND IN EVALUATING PROPOSED HPM-HARDENING TECHNOLOGY. THE RAPIDLY INCREASING NEED TO ESTABLISH SYSTEM SUSCEPTIBILITIES TO HPM MANDATES DEVELOPMENT AND DISTRIBUTIONN OF MCC SOFTWARE WHICH MAY BE OPERATED BY SYSTEM- ...
