  1. ACOUSTO-OPTIC PROCESSOR FOR SYNTHETIC APERTURE RADAR

    SBC: Photonic Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PROCESSING OF SAR DATA IN REAL TIME REQUIRES HIGH SPEED COMPUTATION DEVICES CURRENTLY BEYOND THE STATE-OF-THE-ART OF CONVENTIONAL METHODS. DESIRED PROCESSORS MUST ALSO BE SMALL, RUGGED AND LOW POWER TO BE DEPLOYED ON AIRCRAFT. OPTICAL TECHNIQUES CAN SATISFY THESE REQUIREMENTS WITH IMAGINATIVE ARCHITECTURES. THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH FOR REAL TIME SAR IMAGE RECONSTRUCTION THAT C ...

  2. ADAPTIVE NULLING BY ELECTRICAL SURFACE CONTROL OF A REFLECTOR ANTENNA

    SBC: COMPUTER SCIENCE INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO FORMING A NULL IN THE SECONDARY PATTERN OF A REFLECTOR ANTENNA IS DEVELOPED BY THIS PROJECT. AN ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLABLE REFLECTIVE SURFACE BEING DEVELOPED ON A NASA SBIR IS THE STARTING POINT FOR THE WORK. THIS PROJECT EXTENDS THE PERFORMANCE OF THE SURFACE SO THAT IT IS USEFUL AS A NULL FORMER. THE RESULT IS CONSIDERABLY REDUCED COST OF NULL STEERING ANTENNAS. THE DE ...

  3. ADVANCED RADIOGRAPHIC TECHNIQUES UTILIZING A SOLID-STATE ELECTRONIC IMAGER

    SBC: General Imaging Corp.            Topic: N/A

    NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF MUNITIONS PRESENTS SPECIAL PROBLEMS THAT CANNOT BE SOLVED WITH CONVENTIONAL TECHNIQUES. AN ELECTRONIC X-RAY IMAGING SYSTEM WILL BE STUDIED TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF ITS USE IN ADVANCED RADIOGRAPHIC IMAGING TECHNIQUES SUCH AS REMOTE ON-LINE INSPECTION, MULTISPECTRAL RADIOGRAPHY AND BACKSCATTER TOMOGRAPHY.

  4. A REAL-TIME 3-D CLOUD SIMULATION SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Aeromet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR IMPLEMENTING A REALTIME, THREE-DIMENSIONAL CLOUD MODEL TO SUPPORT REENTRY VEHICLE TEST OPERATIONS. AN EXISTING RESEARCH CLOUD MODEL WOULD BE INTERFACED TO A MESOSCALE ATMOSPHERIC MODEL. THE COMBINED MODELING SYSTEM WOULD BE ADAPTED FOR USE AT THE KWAJALEIN MISSILE RANGE (KMR). FORECASTS OF DETAILED CLOUD FEATURES SUCH AS WATER CONTENT, RADAR REFLECTI ...

  5. CHLORINE ELECTRODES FOR MOLTEN SALT BATTERIES

    SBC: Technochem Company            Topic: N/A

    FUTURE MILITARY SPACE MISSIONS WILL REQUIRE 10-100 KILOWATTS OF SUSTAINED POWER WITH PEAK/PULSE POWER LEVELS OF 100 KW TO 100 MW. ELECTROCHEMICAL ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEMS WHICH CAN DELIVER HIGH POWER DENSITY YET OFFER HIGH ENERGY DENSITY NEED TO BE DEVELOPED. THESE RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES MUST HAVE DURABILITY AND COMPOSITION INVARIANCE FOR OVER 30,000 CYCLES. BOTH OF THE ELECTRODE REACTIONS IN THE ME ...

  6. COMPACT HIGH EFFICIENCY MULTIAPERTURE BROAD SPECTRUM SENSOR

    SBC: E-tek Dynamics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1987 Department of DefenseAir Force
  7. CONTROLLED COOLDOWN OF AIRCRAFT TURBINE ENGINES

    SBC: Cef Industries Inc            Topic: N/A

    AN "INTELLIGENT" MECHANISM TO CONTROL AIRCRAFT TURBINE ENGINE COOLDOWN UTILIZING INTEGRAL SENSORS, LOGIC, DRIVE AND FAIL-SAFE, FOR EXTENDING THE PERFORMANCE LIFE OF AIRCRAFT GAS TURBINE ENGINES IS PROPOSED. AIRCRAFT TURBINE ENGINES ARE PRECISELY MADE AND CONTROLLED MECHAISMS UNTIL SHUTDOWN. THEN, HEAT SOAK AND SOAKBACK PHENOMEN DELETERIOUSLY AFFECT ENGINE PERFORMANCE, LIFE, MAINTENANCE COSTS AND L ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH FREQUENCY Q-SWITCHED GLASS LASER VIA SOL-GEL PROCESSING

    SBC: GELTECH, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    EXISTING GLASS MATRIX LASERS UTILIZE NEODYMIUM DOPING OF A SILICATE MATRIX. THE INABILITY TO USE A SIO2 MATRIX RESULTS IN AN EFFICIENCY OF 3% OR LESS. THE LOW THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY OF GLASS COUPLED WITH THE RELATIVELY HIGH COEFFICIENT OF THERMAL EXPANSION OF THE SILICATES LIMITS THE OUTPUT INTENSITY AND PULSE RATE IN ORDER TO PREVENT DEDOCUSING AND FILAMENTARY BREAKDOWN FROM THE THERMAL EFFECTS. TH ...

  9. DEVELOPMENT OF GENERAL HEAT PUMP HEAT PIPE AND RANKINE POWER COMPONENTS FOR SPACECRAFT HEAT REJECTION SYSTEMS

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    FUTURE MILITARY SPACE MISSIONS WILL INTRODUCE SIGNIFICANT NEW TECHNOLOGICAL NEEDS FOR SPACECRAFT ENERGY SYSTEMS. VARIOUS TECHNOLOGIES NEED TO BE EVALUATED TO DETERMINE THE BEST TECHNOLOGY FOR A PARTICULAR APPLICATION. A DESIGN TOOL THAT ALLOWS RAPID BUT ACCURATE COMPARISON OF ALL ALTERNATIVES WOULD BE EXTREMELY USEFUL. THE INTENT OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO EXTEND THE GENERALIZED SIM TOOL TRANSIENT MOD ...

  10. EGRESS BORING MACHINE CUTTER DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Cobbs Engineering Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROGRAM GOALS FOR THE EGRESS BORING MACHINE REQUIRE A ROCK BORING SYSTEM WHICH WILL PRODUCE PENETRATION RATES OVER TEN TIMES GREATER THAN THOSE PRODUCED TO DATE UNDER SIMILAR CONDITIONS. THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A CUTTER SYSTEM WHICH USES THE CONCEPT OF AN INTERRUPTED DISC CUTTER. IT WILL TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF INDEXING BETWEEN CRATERS TO MAXIMIZE ROCK REMOVAL WHILE MINIMIZING THRUST REQUIR ...
