  1. MANUFACTURING COST ANALYSIS- GALLIUM ARSENIDE MMIC FOR PHASE ARRAY RADAR TRANSMIT/RECEIVER MODULES

    SBC: Anadigics Inc            Topic: N/A

    MMIC YIELD IS THE SIGNIFICANT FACTOR IN DETERMINING BOTH CHIP COST AND LEVEL OF INTEGRATION. IN ORDER TO MAXIMIZE YIELD, IT IS NECESSARY TO ESTABLISH A CONSISTENT, REPRODUCIBLE PROCESS CONTROL, COUPLED WITH CREATIVE CIRCUIT DESIGN TECHNIQUES USED TO CREATE SHIP SETS WHICH ARE TOLERANT TO PROCESS VARIATIONS. A LARGE PROPORTION OF THE FINAL COST FOR THE END PRODUCT IS RELATED TO THE ASSEMBLY AND FIN ...

  2. BIAXIAL INTERFACE STRESS TRANSDUCER FOR HIGH OVERPRESSURES- DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DEFINITION OF THE STRUCTURE-MEDIA INTERACTION (SMI) LOADS ON A BURIED STRUCTURE IS ONE OF THE LARGEST SOURCES OF UNCERTAINTY IN ANALYZING THE SURVIVABILITY OF STRATEGIC STRUCTURES. ADVANCEMENT OF THE STATEOF-THE-ART IN THE MODELING OF SMI BEHAVIOR IS HAMPERED BY A LIMITED DATA BASE WHICH IS CONFINED TO OVERPRESSURES MUCH SMALLER THAN THOSE CURRENTLY OF INTEREST. THIS EFFORT PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AND ...

  3. FUEL TANK ULLAGE VAPOR ANALYZER

    SBC: John Brown Assoc Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE VAPOR SPACE INSIDE AN AIRCRAFT FUEL TANK EITHER IS OR IS NOT FLAMMABLE (OR EXPLOSIVE) DEPENDING UPON THE PERCENTAGE OF FUEL VAPOR AND OF OXYGEN OF INERT GAS SUCH AS NITROGEN OR CARBON DIOXIDE. IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THESE PERCENTAGES WHEN TESTING THE EFFICACY OF EXPERIMENTAL INERTING MEASURES BY FIRING LIVE ROUNDS AT TEST TANKS; BUT THERE IS NO FAST, CONVENIENT, FIELD METHOD OF MEASURING THE ...

  4. ADAPTIVE GRIDS FOR RAVEN

    SBC: Ecodynamics Research Associate            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS FOR A STUDY OF THE FEASIBILITY OF ADAPTIVE GRID ALGORITHMS FOR IMPLEMENTATION, REFINEMENT AND INCORPORATION INTO AN EXISTING TIME DEPENDENT THREE DIMENSIONAL NAVIER-STOKES COMPUTER MODEL, THE RAVEN CODE. THE STUDY WILL INVOLVE ASSESSMENT AND/OR EXTENSION OF EXISTING ADAPTIVE GRID TECHNIQUES TO DETERMINE THAT WHICH IS OPTIMAL AND EFFICIENT FOR THE PHASE II IMPLEMENTATION IN RAVEN, ...

  5. IR FOCAL PLANE ARRAY MULTIPLEXING- NEW APPROACH

    SBC: Electronic Decisions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN IMPORTANT PROBLEM IN THE AREA OF IR FOCAL PLANE ARRAY IMAGING IS THE FAST AND EFFICIENT MULTIPLEXING AND PROCESSING OF THE SIGNALS FROM THE DETECTOR ARRAY. A NEW APPROACH TO THIS PROBLEM UTILIZING THE RECENTLY DEVELOPED ACOUSTIC CHARGE TRANSPORT (ACT) DEVICE IS PRESENTED. THE ACT DEVICE COMBINES SURFACE ACOUSTIC WAVE AND CHARGE TRANSPORT TECHNOLOGIES TO ACHIEVE A LOW-NOISE, HIGH-THROUGHPUT MULT ...

  6. INSULAR WAVEGUIDE INTEGRATED MILLIMETER FRONT END FOR FM-CW TYPE RADAR SYSTEMS

    SBC: Epsilon Lambda Electronics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    VARIOUS RADAR AND TARGET SEEKER SYSTEMS ARE BEING DEVELOPED TO OPERATE AT MILLIMETER SYSTEMS. LOW COST, HIGHLY RELIABLE FRONT END HARDWARE IS REQUIRED FOR THESE MUNITIONS. DIELECTRIC INSULAR WAVEGUIDE PLANAR INTEGRATED CIRCUITS FOR THIS PURPOSE WERE DESCRIBED INITIALLY BY EPSILON LAMBDA PERSONNEL IN 1970. SOME OF THESE RADARS ARE OF THE FM-CW TYPE, AND THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE NEED FOR DEMONSTR ...

  7. PATTERNING OF GAAS AND ALGAAS ULTRA-SUBMICRON DEVICE STRUCTURES

    SBC: Gain Electronics Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE PERFORMANCE OF DEVICES AND INTEGRATED CIRCUITS USING SELECTIVELY DOPED HETEROSTRUCTURE TRANSISTORS (SDHT) HAS INCREASED DRAMATICALLY IN THE PAST YEARS. A LARGE PART OF THAT PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT IS DUE TO THE REDUCED FEATURE SIZE OF THE GATE ELECTRODE. RECORD SWITCHING TIMES (6 PS) HAVE BEEN ACHIEVED USING GATE LENGTHS OF 0.3 MICROMETERS (UM). SHORTER GATE LENGTHS POTENTIALLY WILL HAVE EVEN ...

  8. EYE PROTECTION RESEARCH

    SBC: Gumbs Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF CONTINUOUS AND PULSED WAVE LASERS IN TARGET DESIGNATION AND COMBAT SITUATIONS IS INCREASING. THERE IS THEREFORE A NEED TO PROTECT COMBAT PERSONNEL AND SENSITIVE SENSING EQUIPMENT FROM ACCIDENTAL EXPOSURE TO LASER RADIATION. THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROGRAM ARE TO DEVELOP, CHARACTERIZE AND TEST A LASER FILTER WHICH REMAINS TRANSPARENT AT AMBIENT LIGHT FLUXES, BUT WHICH COULD BE S ...

  9. TOUGH HIGH MODULUS EPOXY CASTING MATERIALS

    SBC: Gumbs Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OVERALL OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF PREPARING LOW VISCOSITY, ROOM TEMPERATURE CURABLE, TOUGH, HIGH MODULUS EPOXY CASTING MATERIALS USING POLY(ARYL ETHER KETONES) AND POLY(ARYL ETHER SULFONE KETONE) COPOLYMERS AS IMPACT MODIFIERS. TOUGH, HIGH MODULUS CASTING MATERIALS ARE NOT AVAILABLE. AS THE MODULUS INCREASES, THE BRITTLENESS OF THE CONVENTIONAL PLASTICS ALS ...

  10. DIRECT SURFACE MOUNT IC PACKAGE FOR PCB'S

    SBC: International Micro Industries            Topic: N/A

    THIS EFFORT WILL FOCUS ON LOWERING COST AND IMPROVING PER- FORMANCE BY ELIMINATING CERAMIC AND PLASTIC PACKAGES PRES- USED IN SURFACE MOUNTING SEMICONDUCTOR CHIPS. THE CHIP WILL BE MOUNTED DIRECTLY TO A PREPARED FOOTPRINT ON THE PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD (PCB) UTILIZING ADVANCED TAPE AUTO- MATED BONDING (TAB) AND NEW CHIP OVERCOATING MATERIALS. A COMMERCIALLY AVAILBLE VLSI SHIP WITH MORE THAN 60 I/O'S ...
