  1. PULSE DETONATION SYNTHESIS FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE CERAMIC COMPOSITES AND COATINGS

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Adroit Systems, Inc. will develop a Pulse Detonation Synthesis (PDS) process to manufacture ceramic powders from gas-powder reactant mixtures more efficiently and inexpensively than current methods. A high combustion rate and simple design make the PDS system capable of mass producing these powders, which are used as raw materials for high-temperature, high-performance ceramics and ceramic composi ...

  2. LOW TEMPERATURE CRYOCOOLERS

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The regenerator is a key component of a regenerative cryocooler, and the performance of the refrigerator is almost entirely set by the performance of the regenerator. This proposal presents an innovative approach to the fabrication of regenerator structures using fine wires of a metal having high specific heat at low temperatures. Neodymium (Nd) spheres have been used in two-stage cryocoolers that ...

  4. Chalcogenide Superconductors

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

    WE PROPOSE TO SEARCH FOR NEW SUPERCONDUCTORS THAT ARE SIMILAR TO THE PEROVSKITE-BASED HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTORS (HTS), BUT WITH THE OXYGEN REPLACED BY A CHALCOGEN, THAT IS SULFUR, SELENIUM OR TELLURIUM. WE BELIEVE THAT THE HTS COPPER OXIDES ARE NOT A UNIQUE ACCIDENT OF NATURE, BUT THAT THERE ARE OTHER COMPLEX CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS THAT COULD ALSO BE SUPERCONDUCTING. AN OBVIOUS PLACE TO LOOK WO ...

  5. AUTOMATED STATE-OF-THE-ART TESTING ENVIRONMENT FOR LARGE-SCALE, REAL-TIME, CONCURRENT/SERIAL, DISTRIBUTED SOFTWARE

    SBC: Optimization Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OTI proposes to identify, research, prioritize, select and prove concept feasibility of techniques for testing concurrent, real-time, distributed, large-scale software during Phase I. A prototype proof-of-principle will be build during Phase II of this program by integrating test techniques selected during Phase I of this SBIR into OTI's existing SADCA test environment.

  6. POLARIZATION SIGNATURE MEASUREMENTS AND SIMULATIONS

    SBC: PHOTON RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    The primary result of the Phase I effort will be an optimized polarimeter which can be used in Phase II for military, remote sensing, and astronomical observations. Also the feasibility of assembling a user friendly polarization code running on a Silicon Graphics workstation will be established. Initial work in the area of polarization has been done by the principal investigator and by the subcont ...

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

    SEEKER STABILIZATION VIBRATION SUPPRESSION ELECTRO-ACTIVE MATERIALS PROPULSION RESEARCH WILL USE ITS MINIATURE "FERRO-MAGNETIC" ACTUATOR EFFORTD CAN BE USED TO CREATE A "SEEKER ANTI-MOTION SYSTEM". THIS TECHNOLOGY TAKES AN AGGRESSIVE APPROACH TOWARD "INTELLIGENTLY" MANAGING THE SEEKER DYNAMIC RESPONSE TO INDUCED MOTION BY ISOLATING IT "DYNAMICALLY" FROM THE REAMINDER OF THE AIRFRAME USING ELECTRO- ...

  8. COMPACT SPACE POWER TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: Rockford Diamond Technol            Topic: N/A

    A conceptual remote power technology which converts the energy emitted from safe radioisotopes to electrical energy which can be used to produce hydrogen with photoelectrochemical conversion without intermediate thermalization of the high-grade ion energy has been developed. The potential efficiency for this process, alone, is 40% nuclear energy to electrical energy. The overall size of the system ...

  9. Development of a Commercial Multiple Degree of Freedom Measurement System

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

    The Multiple Degree of Freedom Measurement (MDFM) System, developed under Wright Laboratory, has been identified as having strong commercial potential as a significant enhancement to existing products in the machine tool industry for machine tool calibration or coordinate measuring machine enhancement. The MDFM is in need of revision to incorporate state-of-the-art technology, to prepare the devi ...
