  1. FIBER OPTIC MAGNETIC GRADIOMETER FOR DETECTING DEEPLY BURIED ORDNANCE

    SBC: DYNAMICS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A MAGNETIC GRADIOMETER BASED ON THE PROVEN CONCEPT OF A FIBER OPTIC INTERFEROMETRIC MAGNETIC TRANSDUCER IS PROPOSED FOR THE DETECTION OF DEEPLY BURIED ORDNANCE. THE LOCAL MAGNETIC GRADIENT CAN BE MEASURED WITH HIGH SENSITIVITY WITH A MACH-ZEHNDER OPTICL INTERFEROMETER; THE TWO SENSING ARMS ARE COMPOSED OF A SINGLE MODE OPTICAL FIBER COATED WITH, OR OTHERWISE ATTACHED TO, A MAGNETOSTRICTIVE MATERIA ...

  2. END-TO-END IMAGING SONAR SYSTEM (ETE/ISS)

    SBC: ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY & EDUCATION CTR            Topic: N/A

    THE ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSED WORK IS TO DEVELOP AN END-TO-END IMAGING SONAR SYSTEM FOR THE STUDY AND SURVEILLANCE OF THE SEA-BOTTOM. SPECIFICALLY, THE SYSTEM IS TO EXHIBIT ADVANCED TECHNIQUES FOR SONAR SIGNAL PROCESSING TO DETECT, SIZE AND CLASSIFY MINE TARGETS. AN IMAGE SONAR PROCESSOR SOFTWARE PACKAGE WILL BE DEVELOPED. ALTHOUGH SIDE-LOOKING SONARS WILL BE INCLUDED, THE PROCESSOR WILL ...

  3. ROBOTIC DECK SCRUBBER

    SBC: EQUAL ACCESS TO SCIENTIFIC EXCELLENCE            Topic: N/A

    THE OVERALL OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I PROPOSAL IS TO IDENTIFY SYSTEM PARAMETERS AND UTILIZE THIS INFORMATION TO PERFORM PRELIMINARY DESIGN FOR A ROBOTIC DECK SCRUBBER WITH DISTRIBUTED (MULTIPROCESSOR) INTELLIGENCE. SELECTION OF VARIOUS OPTIONS FOR SENSORY, POWER, LOCOMOTION, AND CLEANING SYSTEMS WILL BE MADE TO ALLOW RELIABLE OPERATION WITHIN THE CARRIER HANGER DECK ENVIRONMENT. THE OBSTACLE AVOID ...

  4. COATINGS TO REDUCE RADAR CROSS SECTION AND REFLECTANCE IN THE INFRARED AND LASER SPECTRUM

    SBC: FUZETRON, Inc            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A CONTINUING NEED BY THE MILITARY FOR IMPROVED VISUAL CAMOUFLAGE AND COLORATION TO RENDER OBJECTS LESS VISIBLE FROM CERTAIN BANDS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION, ESPECIALLY RADAR CROSS SECTION AND\OR REFLECTANCE IN THE INFRARED AND LASER SPECTRUM. VARIOUS MATERIALS HAVE BEEN APPLIED TO ACCOMPLISH THIS BUT IMPROVEMENTS ARE NEED. THIS PROJECT USES A SYSTEMS APPROACH TO THE DESIGN OF INNOVATIV ...

  6. IMPROVED DESIGN FOR ISOCON CAMERAS IN THE HERTR SYSTEM

    SBC: J. Stafford Associates            Topic: N/A

    THE ISOCON IS A UNIQUE CAMERA TUBE AND PARTICULARLY USEFUL FOR X-RAY APPLICATIONS. THE PROBLEM WITH THE HERTR CAMERA SYSTEM IS NOT WITH THE TUBE BUT RATHER WITH THE CAMERA DESIGN. THE PROPOSAL SUGGESTS THAT THE CAUSE OF THEEARLY TUBE FAILURE BE ISOLATED, AND WITH THIS INFORMATION, A NEW CAMERA BE DESIGNED WHICH REMOVES THIS WEAKNESS AND INCORPORATES INTO THE DESIGN THE LATEST IMPROVEMENTS IN SOME ...

  7. HIGH-RESOLUTION BEAMFORMING WITH GEVEV PROCESSING

    SBC: Martin Acoustics Software Tech            Topic: N/A

    NEW GEVEV DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING TECHNIQUES CAN PROVIDE SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED PERFORMANCE WITH HIGH RESOLUTIION EVEN FOR SMALL ARRAYS. THE SIGNAL PROCESSORS USE GENERALIZED EIGENVECTOR/ EIGENVALUE (GEVEV) SOLUTIONS FOR THE ESTIMATED SIGNAL-PLUS-NOISE MATRIX IN THE METRIC OF THE ESTIMATED NOISE-ONLY MATRIX. ALMOST ALL SIMILAR INVESTIGATIONS HAVE RELATED TO INCOHERENT NOISE (THAT WE CALL THE EVE ...

  8. CORRELATION SONAR SYSTEM FOR IMPROVED PLATFORM MOTION MEASUREMENTS

    SBC: Oceanographic Services Inc.            Topic: N/A

    STATE-OF-THE-ART DOPPLER SONAR NAVIGATORS DO NOT PROVIDE SUFFICIENTLY PRECISE MEASUREMENT OF RELATIVE MOTION FOR USE WITH ADVANCED, HIGH DEFINITION, SONAR MAPPING SYSTEMS. THIS SHORT-COMING IS PARTICULARLY ACUTE WHERE THE REFLECTIVE SURFACE IS HIGHLY IRREGULAR, RELATIVE VELOCITIES ARE LOW, AND AVERAGING PERIODS ARE SHORT. IN CONTRAST, CORRELATION SONAR TECHNIQUES OVERCOME MANY OF THE INHERENT LIMI ...

  9. TOXIC GAS DETECTION EQUIPMENT

    SBC: Opcoa Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NEW AND IMMERGING TECHNOLOGIES HAVE MADE POSSIBLE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A "POCKET-SIZED" INFRARED SPECTROPHOTOMETER. SUCH AN INSTRUMENT WOULDHAVE APPLICATION IN THE ACCURATE AND RELIABLE REAL-TIME DETECTION OF TOXIC GASES FROM BURNT PROPELANTS SUCH AS LEAD OXIDES, HYDROGEN SULFIDE, HYDROGEN CYANIDE AND NITROUS OXIDES. OPCOA PROPOSES TO USE MICROELECTRONICS AND MICRO-OPTICS TO REDUCE THE SIZE AND POWE ...

  10. ELECTROMAGNETIC DETECTION OF BURIED MINES USING A SUPERCONDUCTIVE MAGENETIC GRADIOMETER

    SBC: Physical Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    MINES BURIED IN THE SEA BOTTOM ARE OFTEN IMPOSSIBLE TO DETECT ACOUSTICALLY. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENERGY PROVIDES AN ALTERNATIVE MEANS OF DETECTION. AN ACTIVE SYSTEM FORMED BY A SOURCE CURRENT ENCIRCLING A SUPERCONDUCTIVE MAGNETIC GRADIOMETER HOLDS THE PROMISE OF PROVIDING AN UNDERWATER-TOWED SYSTEM FOR DETECTING BURIED MINES ELECTROMAGNETICALLY. THE SOURCE CAN OPERATE AT FREQUENCIES OF A FEW TENS OF HE ...
