  1. 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 ...

  3. COMPUTER GENERATED TARGET/WEAPON INTERACTION GRAPHICS

    SBC: Physics Mathematics &            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH CONCERNS THE USE OF COMPUTER ANIMATION FOR SIMULATING WEAPON/TARGET INTERACTION PHENOMENA. SUCH PHENOMENA ARE VERY DYNAMIC BY NATURE, AND ARE THUS GOOD APPLICATIONS FOR COMPUTER ANIMATION. THE FIRST STEP IN COMPUTER ANIMATION IS TO GENERATE A SET OF STATIC IMAGES THAT INCORPORATE HIDDEN SURFACE REMOVAL, LIGHT SOURCES, SHADING, AND OTHER SOPHISTICATED COLOR GRAPHICS RENDERING TECHNIQU ...

  4. GROUND MOBILE TARGET DISCRIMINATION

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS STUDY UTILIZES THE EXPERIENCE GAINED ON MPS, CSB, D2B PEACEKEEPER CONCEALMENT BASING STUDIES AND RECENT SMALL MISSILE CONCEALMENT STUDIES. SENSORS, DISCRIMINANTS AND PHYSICAL SIGNATURES APPLICABLE TO AN ICBM IN CONJUNCTION WITH A TRANSPORTER/LAUNCHER ARE SCREENED FOR APPLICABILITY TO BALLISTIC MISSILE DELIVERY SYSTEM SENSOR PLATFORMS. THREE VARIATIONS OF SENSOR PLATFORMS ARE EVALUATED AGAINST ...

  5. PHASED ARRAY IMAGING IN PARTIALLY COHERENT LIGHT

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE COMBINED REQUIREMENTS FOR HIGH SPATIAL RESOLUTION AND HIGH SIGNAL-TO-NOISE RATIO HAVE LED MANY RECENT TRACKING SYSTEMS ANALYSTS TO CONSIDERACTIVE TRACKERS IMPLEMENTED WITH PHASED ARRAY OPTICS. THE PHASED ARRAY OVERCOMES THE TECHNOLOGY LIMITS ON APERTURE SIZE WHILE THE LASER SOURCES PROVIDE A DETECTABLE TARGET RETURN. THE PHASED ARRAY IMAGER HAS BEEN MODELLED FOR BOTH NON-COHERENT AND FULLY COH ...

  6. ARMAMENT RESEARCH ANALYSIS

    SBC: Amparo Corp.on            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. AIR FORCE HAS A NEED TO DEVELOP A GREATER CAPABILITY OF ANALYZING MUNITIONS/ARMAMENT INTERACTIONS. IT IS PROPOSED THAT THE "HULL CODE" BE MODIFIED IN A WAY THAT WILL SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE ITS ABILITY TO DO THIS. THE IMPLEMENTATION OF VARIOUS NUMERIC IMPROVEMENTS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED AND A TWO DIMENSIONAL PROOF OF CONCEPT TEST WILL BE CONDUCTED.

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW VAPOR PHASE EPITAXY (VPE) TECHNIQUE TO PREPARE THE SEMICONDUCTOR- IN 0.53 GA 0.47 AS

    SBC: Eti Instrument Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HYDRIDE VAPOR PHASE EPITAXY (VPE) IS A WELL ESTABLISHED GROWTH METHOD FOR DEVICES SUCH AS INGAAS PHOTODETECTORS. RECENTLY, AN IMPORTANT SIMPLIFICATION OF THE METHOD WAS DEMONSTRATED IN WHICH IN-GA ALLOY SOURCES (INSTEAD OF SEPARATE IN AND GA METALS) WERE USED. FURTHERMORE, IT WAS DEMONSTRATED THAT INTENTIONALLY ADDED HCL COULD UNEXPECTEDLY PRODUCE TERNARY ALLOYS OF CONSTANT COMPOSITION. EPITAXX PR ...

  8. ACCELERATION HARDENED 84 GHZ TRANSMITTER

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

    THE PROJECT WILL DEVELOP AND TEST A HARDENED GUNN VOLTAGE CONTROLLED OSCILLATOR (VCO) CAPABLE OF SURVIVAL TO A LEVEL OF AT LEAST 50,000 G WITH A GOAL OF 100,000 G. SUCH AN OSCILLATOR HAS POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS TO PROJECTILES OR MISSILES WHICH EXPERIENCE VERY HIGH SHOCK DURING FIRING (LAUNCH). THE DESIGN INVOLVES USE OF A RIGID CHOKE STRUCTURE WHICH PREVENTS TOP LOADING ON THE GUNN AND VARACTOR DIO ...

  9. HIGH SECURITY V-BAND WIRELESS COMMAND/RESPONSE DATA LINK FOR MISSILES AND SUBMUNITIONS

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

    A CONCEPT FOR A WIRELESS V-BAND COMMAND/RESPONSE DATA LINK IS DESCRIBED WHICH WOULD HAVE MAJOR IMPACT ON COMMUNICATIONS IN AIRCRAFT AND SUPPORT ELECTRONICS SUBSYSTEMS (INCLUDING MISSILES AND SUBMUNITIONS). THE WIRELESS LINK CAN BE USED TO REPLACE HARD-WIRE CABLES OR DATA BUS (TO SAVE WEIGHT AND WEAPONS RELIABILITY) AND/OR AS A REDUNDANT BACKUP TO WEAPON AIRCRAFT SURVIVABILITY IN EVENT OF BATTLE DA ...

  10. USER-ORIENTED MICROWAVE COUPLING SIMULATION CODE UTILIZING CAD BASED EXPERT SYSTEM ONN IBM PC-AT COMPATIBLES

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    MICROWAVE COUPLING SIMUATION CODES (MCCS) ARE REQUIRED FOR MODELING SUSCEPTIBILITY OF MILITARY SYSTEMS TO HIGH POWER MICROWAVES (HPM). MCCS ASSIST IN DETECTION OF SYSTEM WEAKNESSES TO HPM AND IN EVALUATING PROPOSED HPM-HARDENING TECHNOLOGY. THE RAPIDLY INCREASING NEED TO ESTABLISH SYSTEM SUSCEPTIBILITIES TO HPM MANDATES DEVELOPMENT AND DISTRIBUTIONN OF MCC SOFTWARE WHICH MAY BE OPERATED BY SYSTEM- ...
