  1. HIGH TEMPERATURE DIESEL ENGINE PISTON CAP MATERIAL SYSTEMS

    SBC: Carboride Corp.            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP NEW OR IMPROVED ON KNOWN GRADIENT CERAMIC/ METALLIC COATINGS FOR APPLICATION ON DIESEL IRON OR STEEL PISTONS CAPABLE OF WITHSTANDING 2000 DEF F COMBUSTION TEMPERATURES AND PROVIDING SIGNIFICANT THERMAL BARRIERS. THE TREND OF DIESEL ENGINE DEVELOPMENT AND PARTICULARLY THE LOW HEAT REJECTION (ADIABATIC) ENGINES TOWARDS HIGHER PISTON HEAD TEMPERATURES REQUIRES THE USE OF THE ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. ACTIVE OSCILLATOR PHASE NOISE REDUCTION

    SBC: Manatech Associates            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED TO REDUCE VIBRATION-INDUCED PHASE NOISE IN CRYSTAL OSCILLATORS BY A COMPACT ARRANGEMENT OF ACTIVE MOUNTINGS. SUCH MOUNTINGS ARE ENVISAGED AS PIEZOELECTRIC BENDER ELEMENTS ARRANGED SO THAT VIBRATIONS OF A BRAOD BANDWIDTH AND MODERATE AMPLITUDE ARE ABSORBED IN 1 TO 3 AXES. WHILE THE MOST CONSERVATIVE ARRANGEMENT WOULD REQUIRE AN ELECTRONIC CONTROL AND AMPLIFIER (PRESUMABLY MONOLITHIC) ...

  6. DIGITAL SPECTROSCOPY OF PIEZOELECTRIC CRYSTALLINE MEDIA

    SBC: Measurement Concept Corp            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES THE EXTENSION OF DIGITAL SPECTROMETRY TO THE MEASUREMENT OF THE ANISOTROPIC PERMITTIVITIES OF PIEZOELECTRIC MATERIALS. WE SHOW THAT FRESNEL'S EQUATIONS FOR ANISOTROPIC MEDIA, AS IS THE CASE WITH ISOTROPIC MEDIA, ALSO SIMPLIFY FOR AN INCIDENT ANGLE OF 45 DEG. IN DIGITAL SPECTROMETRY FOR ISOTROPIC MEDIA THE SAMPLE IS FIXED AND THE POLARIZATION STATE OF THE INCIDENT BEAM IS RO ...

  7. THE FEASIBILITY OF T: A TOOL TO AUTOMATICALLY GENERATE SOFTWARE TEST CASES

    SBC: Programming Environments Inc (            Topic: N/A

    THE LACK OF HIGH-RELIABILITY SOFTWARE IS A MAJOR PROBLEM IN THE MILITARY AND COMMERCIAL COMMUNITIES TODAY. TRADITIONAL V&V TECHNIQUES IMPROVE SOFTWARE RELIABILITY BY HELPING TO FIND ERRORS EARLY IN SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT, BUT WE NEED TO GO BEYOND THESE TECHNIQUES TO FIND A WAY TO PREVENT ERRORS FROM OCCURRING IN THE FIRST PLACE. PEI HAS BEEN USING ERROR PREVENTION CONCEPTS IN A FRONT END TESTING APP ...

  8. RUGATE LASER FILTER

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

    A REQUIREMENT EXISTS TO PROVIDE OCULAR PROTECTION TO TROOPS AT RISK FROM LASER ENERGY EXPOSURE AND BALLISTIC FRAGEMENTS WHILE MAINTAINING ESSENTIAL VISUAL PERFORMANCE. OPTICAL FILTERS BASED ON HOLOGRAPHIC MIRRORS OR THIN FILM INTERFERENCE FILTERS ARE EFFECTIVE IN BLOCKING LASER BEAMS BUT ARE FRAGILE AND ARE SUBJECT TO DEGRADATION FROM AMBIENT MOISTURE. THIS LABORATORY PROPOSES TO MAKE THIN FILM IN ...

  9. MESSAGE SWITCH-PACKET SWITCH INTERWORKING

    SBC: Data Systems Analysts Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE NEED EXISTS FOR AN INTERFACE BETWEEN EXISTING TACTICAL RECORD TRAFFIC NETWORKS AND A PROPOSED WIDE-AREA TACTICAL PACKET SWITCHING NETWORK (TPN). THESE RECORD TRAFFIC NETWORKS INCLUDE THE AN/TYC-39 MESSAGE SWITCH (MS) AND THE MOBILE TACTICAL COMMUNICATIONS CENTER (MTCC). THE TPN IS TO BE PART OF THE MOBILE SUBSCRIBER EQUIPMENT (MSE), AND IS ASSUMED TO INTERFACE AND SHARE PROTOCOLS WITH THE DEFE ...

  10. RESEARCH IN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE FOR NON-COMMUNICATION ELECTRONIC WARFARE SYSTEMS

    SBC: ELECTRO-RADIATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROGRAM DEFINES THE REQUIREMENTS FOR A SYSTEM SUPERVISORY CONTROL FUNCTION FOR ESM AND EW PLATFORMS, APPLICABLE TO THE US ARMY QUICK FIX SYSTEM. THE PROJECT INCORPORATES ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE/EXPERT SYSTEM TECHNIQUES TO STRUCTURE THE DESIGN ARCHITECTURE AND CONDUCT THE KNOWLEDGE ENGINEERING NECESSARY TO DEFINE THE CONTROL STRUCTURE (INTERFERENCE ENGINE) AND THE KNOWLEDGE DATA BASE. THE EFFOR ...
