  1. THE DYNAMIC RESPONSE AND ABLATION OF COMPOSITE LAMINATES DUE TO COMBINED THERMAL/SHOCK AND MECHANICAL LOADING

    SBC: Advanced Composite Engineering            Topic: N/A

    RAPID INTENSE HEATING OF COMPOSITE LAMINATES DUE TO DIRECT ENERGY WEAPONS WILL INDUCE STRONG THERMAL GRADIENTS THAT IN TURN PRODUCE DYNAMIC STRESSES IN THE FORM OF WAVE MOTION. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP A MINDLIN PLATE FINITE ELEMENT PROGRAM FOR ANALYSIS OF THE DYNAMIC BEHAVIOR IN A COMPOSITE LAMINATE SUBJECTED TO COMBINED THERMAL/SHOCK AND SIMULATED IN-FLIGHT AERODYNAMIC LOADIN ...

  2. INTERCEPT/DATA KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT

    SBC: Advanced Decision Systems            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT KNOWLEDGE-BASED SYSTEMS REQUIRE SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE STRUCTURES TO SUPPORT THEIR PROCESSING AND ARE UNABLE TO PROPERLY UTILIZE OR INTERFACE WITH CONVENTIONAL DATA BASES. ADS HAS DEVELOPED AN INTERCEPT MANAGEMENT FUNCTION WHICH CAN INTERFACE TO A CONVENTIONAL THREAT DATABASE TO SUPPORT C3 COUNTERMEASURES OPERATIONS. THE INTERCEPT MANAGEMENT FUNCTION ESTABLISHES THE RELATIVE VALUE OF DATA I ...

  3. MAGNESIUM COMPOSITES FOR REUSABLE HYDROGEN STORAGE MODULES

    SBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A PROPRIETARY APPROACH TO USING MAGNESIUM COMPOSITES FOR FABRICATING REUSABLE HYDROGEN STORAGE MODULES FOR THE NATIONAL AEROSPACE PLANE (NASP), THE X-30, IS PRESENTED. THESE HYDRIDE MATERIALS HAVE THE INHERENT CAPABILITY FOR STORING HYDROGEN AT ROOM TEMPERATURE TO DENSITIES NEARLY TWICE THAT OF LIQUID HYDROGEN. PRELIMINARY EXPERIMENTS INDICATE THAT THESE MAGNESIUM COMPOSITES CAN MAINTAIN THEIR STR ...

  4. EQUIPMENT TO TEST AND DEVELOP R.P.V. AERODYNAMIC ENHANCEMENT DEVICES

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PERFORMANCE OF REMOTE PILOTED VEHICLES (RPV'S) CAN BE SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED BY PASSIVE DEVICES FOR CONTROLLING THE TURBULENT BOUNDARY LAYER. THESE DEVICES RANGE FROM SURFACE DEVICES FOR DRAG REDUCTION TO VORTEX GENERATORS FOR SEPARATION CONTROL. CURRENTLYTHERE IS LITTLE APPLICATION OF THESE DEVICES DUE TO A LACK OF CONFIDENCE IN THEM, AND LIMITED PERFORMANCE DATA. VORTEX GENERATORS ARE ONLY U ...

  5. MINIATURE ELECTRON BEAM ACCELERATOR INCORPORATING ELECTRON SOURCE AND HIGH GRADIENT ACCELERATION MECHANISM

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    LIGHT WEIGHT, HIGH ENERGY CHARGED PARTICLE BEAM PRODUCTION IS FEASIBILE WHEN THE ACCELERATION POTENTIAL IS GENERATED FROM AN INDUCTIVE ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM. AN INTENSIVE, COPIOUS X-RAY RADIATION SOURCE IS THEREFORE OBTAINABLE SIMULTANEOUSLY THROUGH THE HIGH-CURRENT ELECTRON BEAM AND METAL TARGET INTERACTION. USE OF A PLASMA OPENING SWITCH IS PROPOSED FOR OPENING THE INDUCTIVE CIRCUIT BECAUSE IT I ...

  6. MICROWAVE NDE SENSOR FOR IN-PROCESS CONTROL IN THE MANUFACTURE OF CARBON-CARBON COMPOSITES

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    THE INTELLIGENT PROCESSING OF MATERIALS IS A NOVEL CONCEPT IN MATERIALS PROCESSING IN WHICH INFORMATION FROM REAL TIME, IN-SITU MICROSTRUCTURAL SENSORS AND PROCESS MODELS ARE COMBINED WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE APPROACHES TO CONTROL A MATERIALS PROCESS. THE INSITU SENSORS ARE A KEY TO THIS TECHNOLOGY SINCE INFORMATION ABOUT THE "STATE" OF THE MATERIAL MUST BE ASCERTAINED. THEREFORE, THIS PROPOSA ...

  7. HIGH POWER DENSITY COMPONENTS FOR ELECTROMAGNETIC LAUNCHERS

    SBC: Amercom Inc            Topic: N/A

    A SIX-MONTH FEASIBILITY STUDY TO INVESTIGATE THE USE OF CERAMIC AND METAL MATRIX COMPOSITE MATERIALS FOR THE CONDUCTING RAILS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC RAIL GUNS IS PROPOSED. CERTAIN ELECTRICAL, MECHANICAL AND THERMAL PROPERTIES OF THE MATERIAL WILL BE DETERMINED AND MICROSTRUCTURAL FEATURES OF THE COMPOSITE EVALUATED. SAMPLE RAIL MATERIALS WILL BE EXPOSED TO THE PLASMA ARC ENVIRONMENTS FOUND IN RAILGUNS ...

  8. A TIME-STEPPING METHOD FOR PREDICTING THE FLOW ABOUT POWERED LIFT VEHICLES AT HIGH ANGLES OF ATTACK

    SBC: TARGAZYME, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE FLOW FIELD ABOUT POWERED LIFT VEHICLES CAN BECOME VERY COMPLEX DUE TO HIGH ANGLES OF ATTACK AND LIFTING JETS. IN ADDITION TO MODELING PROPULSION/AIRFRAME INTERACTIONS, THEREFORE, FLOW PREDICTION METHODS MUST TREAT THE PROBLEMS OF SEPARATION AND THE TRANSIENT EFFECTS OF PASSING VORTICAL STRUCTURES INTERACTING WITH THE AIRFRAME. ANALYTICAL METHODS, INC. (AMI) PROPOSES TO EXTEND ITS POWERED LIFT ...

  10. DEVELOPMENT OF AN INTEGRATED SYSTEM FOR THE WIND TUNNEL MEASUREMENT OF AIR VELOCITY TEMPERATURE AND DENSITY

    SBC: Analatom Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    NEW VELOCITY MEASUREMENT TECHNIQUES, WHICH USE ARF LASER INDUCED FLUORESCENCE (LIF) IN CO2 AND IN CO FORMED BY THE LASER, ARE PROPOSED.THE NEW TECHNIQUES WILL COMBINE WITH OTHER LIF TECHNIQUES, UNDER DEVELOPMENT BY US, WHICH MEASURE DENSITY AND TEMPERATURE TO FORM WITH THEM AN INTEGRATED SYSTEM FOR SINGLE PULSE MEASUREMENT OF THREE INDEPENDENT FLOW PARAMETERS. ALL THREE TECHNIQUES ARE MOST SUITED ...
