  2. 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 ...

  3. ADVANCED METAL ARMATURE DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: IAP RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE EFFICIENCY OF RAILGUN LAUNCHERS IS A KEY ISSUE IN BOTH THE SIZE AND LIFE OF RAILGUN SYSTEMS. PLASMA ARMATURES ARE A MAJOR ENERGY LOSS COMPONENT AND PRODUCE SEVERE BORE EROSION. METAL ARMATURES OFFER INCREASED EFFICIENCY AND REDUCED BARREL EROSION IN SOME REGIMES OF OPERATION. THIS PROGRAM ADDRESSES THE USE OF ADVANCED COMPOSITE MATERIALS IN ARMATURES. THE GOAL IS TO PROVIDE HIGHLY EFFICIENT AR ...

  4. NOVEL RESONATOR FOR FREE-ELECTRON LASER: SIMULATION AND EXPERIMENT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A COMPUTER CODE TO SIMULATE SHORT-WAVELENGTH (SINGLE-PARTICLEINTERACTION DOMAIN) FREE ELECTRON LASER (FELS), INCLUDING ALL THE IMPORTANT PROPERTIES OF THEIR INTERACTIONS WITH UNSTABLE OPTICAL RESONATORS, WILL BE DEVELOPED. THIS CODE WILL BE APPLIED TO A NOVEL CLASS OF UNSTABLE RESONATOR THAT HAS A COMPACT OUTPUT BEAM. THIS CLASS OF UNSTABLE RESONATOR IS ESPECIALLY WELL ADAPTED TO THE FEL BECAUSE, ...

  5. PROCESSED VAPOR GROWN GRAPHITE FIBERS FOR ELECTROMAGNETIC RAILGUNS

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    REQUIREMENTS FOR RAILGUN ARMATURES DICTATE MATERIALS PROPERTIES VALUESWHICH ARE DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN FROM CONVENTIONAL MATERIALS. THE NEED EXISTS FOR A MATERIAL WHICH HAS LOW DENSITY, HIGH MELTING POINT, HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY, LOW COEFFICIENT OF THERMAL EXPANSION, HIGH ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY, HIGH VALUES FOR STRENGTH, AND GOOD CHARACTERISTICS OF LUBRICITY. GRAPHITE FIBER GROWN FROM PYROLYSIS O ...

  7. MICROSTACK INSULATOR FOR HIGH VOLTAGE PULSED SYSTEMS

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    POLYMERIC OR CERAMIC INSULATORS CONVENTIONALLY ARE BEING USED IN HIGH VOLTAGE PULSED SYSTEMS. NEW APPROACHES ARE NEEDED THAT WOULD REDUCE INSULATORS RING THICKNESSES AND INCREASE CORRESPONDING GRADING RINGS FLASHOVER VOLTAGE. SUCH AN APPROACH WOULD POSSESS IN COMPARISON TO CONVENTIONAL INSULATORS: HIGHER SURFACE FLASHOVER FIELD STRENGTH; SMALLER PHYSICAL DIMENSIONS FOR EQUIVALENT VOLTAGE HOLDOFF; ...
