  1. A FUEL/AIR DRIVE FLUX COMPRESSOR POWER UNIT FOR ELECTROTHERMAL GUNS

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The Ktech Team proposes a feasibility study of a fuel/air driven flux compression power unit (FCPU) for electric guns. Through variations of inductance gradients and through changes in scale, the proposed technology will be applicable to both electrothermal/chemical and electromagnetic guns. In the Phase 1 effort, we develop simulation models to predict the performance of the flux compression po ...

  2. A NOVEL FIELD PROGRAMMABLE GATE ARRAY FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Mission Research Corporation proposes the development of a unique FPGA (field programmable gate array) for applications in space and other military and civilian environments requiring the versatility of reconfigurability with retention of the configuration in an unpowered state. The FPGA will be capable of being configured once and retaining that configuration for a minimum of 10 years even with ...

  3. An Improved Plasma Opening Switch for DECADE

    SBC: NumerEx            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT ATTEMPTS TO USE THE PLASMA OPENING SWITCH (POS) FOR DECADE HAVE NOT YET BEEN ENTIRELY SUCCESSFUL DUE TO THE APPARENT INABILITY OF THE SWITCH TO OPEN EFFICIENTLY TO A HIGH-IMPEDENCE LOAD. RESEARCH DIRECTED TOWARD IMPROVING THE PERFORMANCE OF THE POS IN THE LONG-CONDUCTION TIME REGIME HAS BEEN FRUSTRATED BY THE INABILITY OF COMPUTATIONAL TOOLS TO OPERATE IN THE PARAMETER REGIMES OF INTEREST ...

  4. AN YTTRIUM ALUMINUM PEROVSKITE BASED GAMMA-RAY DOSIMETER

    SBC: W Peter Trower Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

  5. A PORTABLE IMAGING SYSTEM FOR NONDESTRUCTIVE EXAMINATION OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANT COMPONENTS

    SBC: T P L, INC            Topic: N/A

    THE DIFFICULTY IN PREDICTING STRUCTURAL DEGRADATION RATES FOR NUCLEAR POWER PLANT COMPONENTS DUE TO CORROSION AND OTHER FACTORS HAS LED TO THE NEED FOR COSTLY, TIME CONSUMING INSPECTIONS AND INCREASED COST FROM INTENTIONALLY OVERDESIGNED COMPONENTS. THE SITUATION INDICATES A SERIOUS, UNMET NEED FOR A SIMPLE BUT ACCURATE SYSTEM FOR REAL- TIME, IN SITU, NONDESTRUCTIVE ANALYSIS OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANT ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF A HARDNESS ASSURANCE THROUGHPUT OPTIMIZED TESTER

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    INTEGRATED CIRCUIT (IC) PRODUCTION LINES OPERATING UNDER MIL-I-38535 HAVE RADIATION HARNESS ASSURANCE (RHA) AND RELIABILITY DESIGNED AND BUILT INTO THEIR TECHNOLOGY. HARDNESS AND RELIABILITY ARE MAINTAINED BY APPLYING STATISTICAL PROCESS CONTROLS (SPCS) TO TEST STRUCTURES FABRICATED ALONGSIDE PRODUCT MICROCIRCUITS. MEASUREMENT AND DATA REDUCTION TECHNIQUES PRESENTLY EMPLOYED ARE SLOW AND COSTLY AN ...

  7. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...

  8. EMP AND HPM SUPPRESSION TECHNIQUES

    SBC: Integrated Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Survival of present day microelectronic circuits depends on their protection from self generated and external electromagnetic interference. This proposal is oriented toward the class of interference generally referred to as overvoltage transients. Means for mitigating these transients include gas discharge tubes, and various solid state devices. Each of these has their own advantages in particu ...

  10. HOLOGRAPHIC PATTERN RECOGNITION FOR ARMS CONTROL

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE CONTRACTOR HAS PATENTED TECHNOLOGY FOR A UNIQUE PROCESS THAT DIRECTLY CONVERTS AN ACOUSTIC SIGNAL INTO A VISIBLE ONE IN REAL-TIME WITHOUT ELECTRONIC CIRCUITRY. THIS RELIES ON THE ACOUSTO-OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF A CONTINUOUS LAYER OF LIQUID CRYSTAL THIN FILM LAYER WHICH SERVES AS BOTH THE SENSOR AND THE DISPLAY. THE IMAGE CAN BE VIEWED DIRECTLY BY MEANS OF CCD CAMERA. HOLOGRAPHY PROVIDES FOR BOTH ...
