  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. MICROSTACK INSULATOR FOR HIGH VOLTAGE PULSED SYSTEMS

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    POLYMERIC OR CERAMIC INSULATORS CONVENTIONALLY ARE BEING USED IN HIGH VOLTAGE PULSED SYSTEMS. NEW APPROACHES ARE NEEDED THAT WOULD REDUCE INSULATORS RING THICKNESSES AND INCREASE CORRESPONDING GRADING RINGS FLASHOVER VOLTAGE. SUCH AN APPROACH WOULD POSSESS IN COMPARISON TO CONVENTIONAL INSULATORS: HIGHER SURFACE FLASHOVER FIELD STRENGTH; SMALLER PHYSICAL DIMENSIONS FOR EQUIVALENT VOLTAGE HOLDOFF; ...

  7. HIGH POWER LOW IMPEDANCE LIGHT WEIGHT TRANSMISSION LINES

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH POWER, LOW IMPEDANCE, LIGHTWEIGHT ENERGY STORAGE TRANSMISSION LINES FOR PULSE-POWER APPLICATIONS IS CRUCIAL FORSMALLER, LIGHTWEIGHT, SPACE-BASED, PULSE-POWER SYSTEMS. DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH DIELECTRIC ENERGY STORAGE LINE TECHNOLOGY WOULD GREATLY REDUCETHE SIZE, WEIGHT, AND COMPLEXITY OF PULSE POWER SYSTEMS UTILIZING THESE TYPES OF COMPONENTS. EFFICIENT TRANSPORT OF 400KV, 100K ...

  8. VIRTUAL PROTOTYPING TOOLS FOR SEMICONDUCTOR FABRICATION EQUIPMENT

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE EXISTING METHODOLOGY OF DESIGN AND FABRICATION OF SEMICONDUCTOR MANUFACTURING EQUIPMENT IS AN EXPENSIVE AND TIME CONSUMING PROCESS. TO KEEP PACE WITH THE RAPIDLY ADVANCING SEMICONDUCTOR INDUSTRY, IT IS NECESSARY TO DEVELOP A COMPUTER BASED ENVIRONMENT TO QUICKLY SIMULATE THE FEATURES OF THE MANUFACTURING EQUIPMENT BEFORE IT IS TURNED INTO A PHYSICAL PROTOTYPE. APART FROM ACHIEVING CONSIDERABLE ...

  10. FLEXIBLE MANUFACTURING OF ADVANCED STRUCTURAL CERAMICS USING LAMINATED OBJECT MANUFACTURING TECHNIQUES

    SBC: LONE PEAK ENGINEERING COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    FABRICATING CERAMIC PROTOTYPES OR MANUFACTURING LOW VOLUME QUANTITIES OF CERAMIC PARTS IS A COSTLY, TIME-CONSUMING, AND INFLEXIBLE PROCESS. THESE RESTRICTIONS LIMIT THE USE OR EVEN THE CONSIDERATION OF CERAMICS IN SOME APPLICATIONS. A VARIETY OF TECHNIQUES HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED TO PRODUCE PAPER- AND POLYMER-BASED PARTS DIRECTLY FROM A COMPUTER-AIDED DRAWING WITHOUT ANY HARD TOOLING, DIES, OR MOLDS. ...
