  3. AN AUTOMATED SYSTEM FOR THE DEPOSITION OF HIGH T(C) SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILMS AND OTHER MULTI-COMPONENT OXIDE FILMS

    SBC: Corium Industries Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILMS WILL HAVE SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON A LARGE NUMBER OF MODERN TECHNOLOGIES, ESPECIALLY IN THE AREA OF ADVANCED MICROCIRCUITRY. ALTHOUGH SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILMS HAVE BEEN PREPARED BY A VARIETY OF METHODS, ALL OF THESE METHODS REQUIRE HIGH TEMPERATURE PROCESSING STEPS WHICH ARE INCOMPATIBLE WITH THE PRODUCTION OF HIGH DENSITY MICROCIRCUITRY, AND NO ...

  4. GENERATING ROBUST PLANS IN ADVERSARIAL ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: Decision Science Associates            Topic: N/A

    DECISION SCIENCE CONSORTIUM, INC. (DSC) PROPOSES TO ENGAGE IN AN INNOVATIVE RESEARCH PROGRAM TO DESIGN AND IMPLEMENT AN ADVERSARIAL PLANNING SYSTEM THAT IS ABLE TO REASON ABOUT THE PERSISTENCE OVER TIME OF AN ADVERSARY'S BELIEF AND INTENTIONS. SPECIFICALLY, THIS SYSTEM WILL UTILIZE EITHER A NONMONOLITHIC SITUATIONAL OR TEMPORAL LOGIC TO DETERMINE THE EXTENT TO WHICH AN ADVERSARY'S PRESENT BELIEFS ...

  5. RADAR SCATTERING OF COMPOSITE MATERIALS

    SBC: Decision-science            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW AND INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES WHICH DETERMINE ELECTROMAGNETIC SCATTERING BEHAVIOR ARE NECESSARY IN ORDER TO ADVANCE THE STATE-OF-THE-ART IN RADAR CROSS SECTION (RCS) CONTROL. TWO OF THE MORE IMPORTANT ANALYTICAL PROBLEMS REQUIRING SOLUTION IN THIS AREA ARE THE CHARACTERIZATION OF RADAR SCATTERING FROM COMPOSITE MATERIALS AND OPTIMUM APPLICATION OF MATERIAL COATINGS TO METALLIC S ...

  6. RESEARCH ON A THREE DIMENSIONAL NON-VOLATILE MASS STORAGE MEDIUM

    SBC: Delphi Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    A PROJECT IS PROPOSED TO INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF COMBINING A PHASE-CHANGE NON-LINEAR OPTICAL MATERIAL WITH A PHOTOREFRACTIVE MATERIAL IN THIN LAYERS TO ACHIEVE A THREE DIMENSIONAL MASS STORAGE MEDIUM. ORGANIC COMPOUNDS POSSESSING GOOD POLARIZABILITY ALONG WITH COMPOSITION CONDUCIVE TO PHASE CHANGE MECHANICS WILL BE TESTED FOR SHG AND PHASE CHANGE ABILITY, THEN PREPARED IN THIN FILMS ON PHOT ...

  7. TUNABLE HIGH T(C) SUPERCONDUCTING INFRARED DETECTORS

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A SUPERSONDUCTOR BASED INFRARED DETECTOR WITH A CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE SENSITIVITY IS PROPOSED. THE SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILM IS TO HAVE A POLYCRYSTALLINE NATURE TO ACHIEVE JOSEPHSON JUNCTION BEHAVIOR DIRECTLY THROUGH THE ANISOTROPIC SUPERCONDUCTING PROPERTIES OF YBA(2)CU(3)O(7-X). THE DEPOSITION SUBSTRATE IS TO BE AN OXYGEN ION CONDUCTOR THAT WILL PERMIT CONTINUOUS AND CONTROLLED ADJUSTMENT OF THE ...

  9. LEADING EDGE STRUCTURAL CONCEPT FOR HYPERVELOCITY VEHICLE

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A MAJOR PROBLEM FACING PHYPERSONIC VEHICLE DESIGNERS IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF FLIGHT STRUCTURES WHICH CAN WITHSTAND MULTIPLE HEATING CYCLES TO OVER 3500 DEG F. ADVANCED CARBON/CARBON COMPOSITES (ACC) ARE A LEADING CANDIDATE BUT WILL REQUIRE IMPROVED STRUCTURAL CONCEPTS AND OXIDATION RESISTANT COATINGS. CURRENT 2-D ACC MADE FROM CARBON-PHENOLIC HAVE POOR TRANSVERSE STRENGTH AND THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY. 3 ...

  10. NOVEL CARBON-CARBON COMPOSITE WITH IMPROVED STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES AND PROVISIONS FOR ACTIVE LEADING EDGE COOLING

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    EFFECTIVE PERFORMANCE OF REUSABLE HYPERSONIC VEHICLES WILL DEPEND ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF THERMAL PROTECTION SYSTEMS (TPS) FOR NOSE TIP, WING LEADING EDGE, AND FUSELAGE STRUCTURES CAPABLE OF OPERATION FOR EXTENDED PERIODS IN AN EXTREME AEROHEATING ENVIRONMENT. MINIMUM WEIGHT DESIGN MAY BE ACHIEVED VIA A COMBINATION OF ACTIVE/PASSIVE TPS APPROACHES. THIS WOULD INVOLVE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH TEMPER ...
