  1. 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; ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Capillary Discharge X-Ray Laser Driver

    SBC: Multilayer Optics And X-ray            Topic: N/A

    A compact x-ray laser driver with a high repetition rate is the subject of this phase I project. Most existing x-ray laser drivers are huge (1000s of square feet of floor space), expensive ($10,000,000+), have a low repetition rate (1/hr), are complex and require several PhDs to keep them working. Thus applications of present x-ray lasers are limited. In contrast, the proposed laser will occupy on ...

  5. Micro Disk Systems for Inertial Sensing and Optical Beam Control

    SBC: STERLING RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Sarcos is currently developing a technology that can lead to low-cost millimeter-scale gyroscopes, multi axis inertial sensors, and very compact laser scanning devices. This technology, called Micro Disk Systems (MDS), is based on levitating a small disk above a VLSI substrate using electrostatic fields. AC stabilization of the fields ensures that the disk position remains suitable, and field-base ...

  6. Miniature, Ultrasensitive, Solid State Sensor for Atomic Oxygen

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An extremely sensitive, low power, high durability solid state atomic oxygen sensor system with the potential for cost effective fabrication is proposed. It should lead to 1) improved understanding of the levels of atomic oxygen encountered during space missions; 2)quantification of the effects of atomic oxygen on a variety of materials in the space environment; 3) a warning mechanism for potentia ...

  9. Sensor Resource Management

    SBC: TORCH TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA10002

    Torch proposes to develop, test, and validate real-time BMDS Sensor Resource Management (SRM) algorithms using a scalable sensor network data fusion architecture which is both efficient and robust. Our Phase II SRM development approach is enabled by our Phase I validated "SORCIRER" (Scalable Optimization of Resources using Constrained Information Rate and Embedded Rules) SRM architecture. Our ne ...

  10. Dual-Band Focal Plane Arrays with Double Unipolar Barrier InAs/GaSb Superlattices

    SBC: SK Infrared, LLC            Topic: MDA10012

    In this Phase II effort, SK Infrared LLC, is collaborating with Raytheon Vision Systems (RVS) to demonstrate a dual color 512x512 30 um pitch long wave/long wave (LW/LW) pBp focal plane array (FPA) hybridized to a RVS SB410 Read Out Integrated Circuit (ROIC). The SB410 is a 512x512 30 micron pitch dual band ROIC developed by RVS. The final deliverable at the end of the two year project would be a ...
