  1. A Balloon Assisted Launch System

    SBC: Winzen Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This innovation proposes the use of a thin film stratospheric balloon to lift a launch vehicle with a payload to an altitude above most of the Earth's atmosphere, then ignite the launch vehicle rocket motor. It will have the capability to carry the payload to its final destination, either into Earth orbit or to the mission design goal. This launch system will eliminate the first stage rocket thr ...

  2. A Comprehensive System for the Prevention and Remediation of Biofilms in Dental Equipment

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a substantial body of evidence demonstrating that biofilms growing inside the water lines of dental units pose a significant risk as a source of infection. The problem has been recognized by practitioners, regulators, manufacturers, and the ADA, with the ADA proposing a set of guidelines for water quality that include a limit of 200 colony forming units per milliliter for the year 2000. ...

  4. A Design Improvement Study for the CFTF Centrifuge

    SBC: Biodynamic Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The CFTF Centrifuge at Armstrong Laboratory will be a useful tool for crewmember training and human factors research for future high performance aircraft. The centrifuge features an accelearation of performance that is unmatched by other Air Force facilities, however, it lacks a set of powered gimbals that would allow positioning of the rider with respect to acceleration. With these additional d ...

  5. Advanced Aluminum Alloy: Extruded Thin Wall Structural Concepts

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    The primary objective of this proposed work is to develop a method of producing integrally stiffened, complex shaped monolithic structural components in high strength aluminum alloys at a lower cost and lighter weight than equivalent conventional built-up assemblies. In Phase I the feasibility of attaining this objective will be demonstrated by conducting a series of subscale experiments based upo ...

  7. Advanced Electro-Optical Sensor Development and Test

    SBC: Lasen Inc            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research will provide a design of a laser radar which uses frequency agile laser technology in the spectral region from 1.5 um to 4.0 um. This project will use direct diode pumped optical parametric oscillator laser (OPOL) to provide mid-infrared laser radiation. Optical parametric amplifier laser (OPAL) technology will be used to amplify and frequency up-shift the mid-infrared rad ...

  8. Advanced GPS Receiver Technology for Autonomous Space Navigation

    SBC: J. Chaffee & Associates            Topic: N/A

    JChaffee & Associates proposes the development of advanced methods for using GPS with the goal of automating space operations. This includes navigation, attitude determination, and relative positioning from launch through orbital operations and de-orbit. To accompolish this task, a new generation of computational methods for GPS will be applied in a new generation of GPS receivers. The computation ...

  9. Advanced Laser Diagnostics for Quantitative Species Measurements in Turbulent Combustion

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Jet engines and other turbine combustors operate at high pressures, with turbulence length and time scales on the order of 100 um and 100 us. Accurate experimental characterization of turbulent reacting flows is critical for validating computational fluid dynamics and chemistry codes used in the design of advanced turbine combustors. Laser-based diagnostics are typically used to characterize vel ...

  10. A Fiber Optic Electrochemiluminescence Sensor for the Detection of Organic Pollutants and Trace Metals i

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Chemiluminescence is a powerful analytical technique that exhibits high sensitivity and selectivity. This technique when coupled with electrolysis is greatly advantageious over the conventional methods as the reagents are produced in situ at the electrode. The presence of trace amounts of solvents such as TCE, PCE, methylene chloride and carbon tetrachloride can be monitored using the method of ...
