  1. CRYOCOOLER FOR HIGH ACCELERATION SYSTEMS

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

    A CRYOCOOLER CAPABLE OF OPERATING UNDER EXTREMELY HIGH ACCELERATION LEVELS IS PROPOSED. THE CRYOCOOLER USES THE LINDE-HAMPSON CYCLE, AND CAN REACH APPROXIMATELY 80 KELVIN. MULTI-STAGE UNITS, TO REACH LOWER TEMPERATURES, ARE ALSO POSSIBLE.

  2. 2-D ACOUSTO-OPTIC HIGH POWER LASER BEAM DEFLECTOR DEVELOPMENT (NO MIRRORS)

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS A UNIQUE AND INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO CONSTRUCTING 2-D GAAS ACOUSTO-OPTIC LIGHT DEFLECTORS FOR HIGH POWER LASER APPLICATIONS WITHOUT THE USE OF MIRRORS. ADVANTAGES OF SUCH SYSTEM OVER CONVENTIONAL LASER BEAM MIRRORS ARE THE INABILITY OF MIRRORS TO DEFLECT AT HIGH SPEEDS DUE TO THE MIRROR'S INERTIA. AS A RESULT WITH ELECTRONIC ACOUSTO-OPTIC DEVICES, THEIR PERFORMANCE AND HENCE SPEED ...

  3. HYBRID MICROCOMPUTER-BASED OPTICAL SIGNAL PROCESSOR UTILIZING A TWO-DIMENSIONAL ACOUSTO-OPTIC MODULATOR

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: N/A

    WITH THE INTEREST IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF VERY FAST COMPUTERS, MUCH FASTER THAN THE CONVENTIONAL DIGITAL CHIP-BASED SYSTEM, THE FUTURE SEEMS VERY BRIGHT FOR OPTICAL-SIGNAL PROCESSING. TWO-DIMENSIONAL OPTICAL PROCESSING IS BEING USED FOR PATTERN RECOGNITION, MACHINE VISION, AND OPTICAL COMPUTING. CURRENTLY, A MAGNETO-OPTIC SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATOR (MOSLM) IS USED TO CONVERT ARRAYS OF PROGRAMMABLE ELEC ...

  4. SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION AND CONTROL USING SINGULAR VALVE DECOMPOSITION SYSTOLIC ARRAYS

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL ENGINEERING INTERNATIONAL            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ALGORITHMS FOR SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION AND CONTROL ARE NOT COMPLETELY RELIABLE FOR AUTOMATIC IMPLEMENTATION ON MICROPROCESSORS IN REAL TIME. A NEW CLASS OF ALGORITHMS BASED UPON A GENERALIZED SINGULAR VALUE DECOMPOSITION IS BEING CONSIDERED FOR SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION, STATISTICAL MODEL ORDER DETERMINATION, MODEL ORDER REDUCTION, AND PREDICTIVE CONTROL. IN THIS APPROACH, THE ALGORI ...

  5. COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE AND VERY HIGH-LEVEL LANGUAGE DESIGN FOR BATTLE MANAGEMENT

    SBC: LNK CORP., INC.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT COMPUTATIONAL APPROACHES ARE INADEQUATE TO PERFORM REAL TIME PATTERN RECOGNITION AND ADAPTIVE RESOURCE ALLOCATION IN ORDER TO SUITABLY RESPOND TO ENEMY THREATS WHEN COMPARED TO THE DYNAMICALLY CHANGING MILITARY ENVIRONMENTS. DESPITE DECADES OF EFFORT BASED UPON STATISTICAL SIGNAL PROCESSING AND PATTERN RECOGNITION METHODOLOGY, THEREAL TIME RECOGNITION OF COMPLEX TARGETS REMAINS A CHALLENGI ...

  6. KINETIC ENERGY WEAPONS

    SBC: Nichols Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE ACQUISITION OF POST BOOST PHASE VEHICLES AND/OR INDIVIDUAL REENTRY VEHICLES BY AN INFRARED SENSOR ON BOARD A SMALL G HARDENED PROJECTILE WHICH SUBSEQUENTLY HOMES ON AND IMPACTS ITS TARGET OFFERS AN ATTRACTIVE APPROACH FOR REENTRY VEHICLE KINETIC ENERGY KILL. THE ACQUISITION, TRACKING, DISCRIMINATION AND GUIDANCE FUNCTIONS REQUIRED OF SUCH AN IR SENSOR RESULT IN A NUMBER OF CRITICAL ISSUES. THE ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. ULTRAVIOLET WAVEGUIDE LASERS FOR PHASED ARRAY LIDAR

    SBC: Potomac Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A PROOF OF PRINCIPLE EXPERIMENT IS BEING CONSTRUCTED THAT WILL CLEARLYDEMONSTRATE THE ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS OF ARRAY OPERATION. AN OSCILLATOR AND TWO AMPLIFIER SECTIONS ARE BEING SUBJECTED TO PERFORMANCE TESTS. PHASE ARRAY OPTICAL RADARS OR LIDARS OPERATING WITH RELATIVELY LARGE SYNTHETIC APERTURES CAN EXHIBIT MANY OF THE SAME RAPID POINTING AND TRACKING FEATURES ASSOCIATED WITH MICROWAVE SYSTEMS, AN ...

  10. 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; ...
