  1. A novel enhanced-performance low-cost receiver and modified modulation scheme for WWVB

    SBC: XW, LLC dba Xtendwave            Topic: N/A

    The development of a greatly enhanced receiver for the WWVB signal is targeted, as well as possible modifications in the transmitted signal, which would both offer significant improvements in its effective coverage. This is to be achieved while allowing the replacement of the bulky, expensive, ferrite-based antenna, commonly used in the receiver, with a novel lower-cost antenna. Furthermore, the p ...

  7. Advancements in Thermal Battery Pellet Manufacture

    SBC: ENSER Corporation, The            Topic: MDA09010

    Thermal batteries are a mission-critical component utilized in virtually every weapon system. All thermal batteries require four types of pellets that comprise the cell stack(s), i.e., the energy-producing portion of the battery. Pellet size (diameter and thickness) and the number of pellets required vary by battery type and application. Pellets are manufactured by compaction of their powdered co ...

  8. Advances in Thermal Battery Anodes

    SBC: ENSER Corporation, The            Topic: MDA08022

    Thermal batteries are employed in virtually every strategic defense and tactical weapon system. As systems capabilities continue to increase, future thermal batteries will be required to deliver higher power and energy in packages smaller and lighter than those available with baseline lithium-silicon (LiSi) / FeS2 technology. Although ENSER’s proprietary LiSi / cobalt disulfide (CoS2) system p ...
