  1. Development of a Compact Electron Beam Accelerator

    SBC: MICROWAVE TECHNOLGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Microwave Technologies Incorporated is proposing the development of a very compact radio-frequency (rf) electron beam accelerator which appears to be well-suited for BMDO's directed energy applications. This novel concept employs a single short rf cavity operating in circular polarization to accelerate a low-energy ma ~netized pencil beam to energies that range from 2 to 10 MeV. The proposed accel ...

  2. Ultra-high Dielectric Constant Dielectric Materials

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

    NON-NUCLEAR APPROACHES ARE SOUGHT FOR HIGH ENERGY DENSITIES FOR SPACE POWER SYSTEMS. ONE CRITICAL COMPONENT TO ACHIEVE IMPROVED PERFORMANCE IS CAPACITOR STORES. THESE ARE DEPENDENT UPON ADVANCES IN LOW LOSS, HIGH ENERGY/HIGH POWER DENSITY STORAGE MATERIALS. A UNIQUE INORGANIC COMPOSITE IS PROPOSED FOR INVESTIGATION AS A HIGH ENERGY DENSITY STORAGE MATERIAL. AN APPROACH IS FORMULATED BASED ON SOL-G ...

  3. High Velocity Pulsed Plasma Thermal Spray

    SBC: UTRON, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The quality and durability of coatings produced by virtually all thermal spray techniques could be improved by, among other things, increasing the velocity with which coatings particles impact the coated surface and by better control of the chemical and thermal environment seen by the particles during flight. A new and innovative approach to thermal spraying is proposed that can increase coating p ...

  4. Inorganic Confromal Coatings for SIC Packaging

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

    Glass is an attractive material for microelectronic packaging because it is hermetically sealing, has a low coefficient of thermal expansion, and is compatible with d.c. circuits. Unfortunately, the working temperature of glass is too high for this application. Low-temperature processing of a sol-gel derived, aluminosilicate material for hermetic seals is proposed for electronic packaging. This ...

  5. SIDEBAND SUPPRESSION IN HIGH POWER FREE ELECTRON LASERS

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A SELF-REGENERATIVE FEEDBACK TECHNIQUE IS BEING INVESTIGATEDTO SUPPRESS THE FORMATION OF SIDEBANDS THAT LIMIT THE SPECTRAL BRIGHTNESS AND GENERAL PERFORMANCE OF PRESENT HIGH-POWER FREE ELECTRON LASERS (FELS). THIS TECHNIQUE DOES NOT INVOLVE INTRA-CAVITY COMPONENTS THAT SUFFER LOSS DAMAGE DUE TO HIGH POWER OPERATION. A POTENTIAL BREAKTHROUGH IN FEL TECHNOLOGY, ANALYSIS AND SIMULATION ARE BEING PERF ...

  6. Mission Flexible, Low Cost, Suborbital Launch Vehicle

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    LACK OF RELIABLE, FLEXIBLE, LOW COST TRANSPORTATION FOR SMALL PAYLOADS IS A BOTTLENECK IN THE DEVELOPMENT AND DEPLOYMENT OF SPACE BASED SYSTEMS. PACASTRO'S FAMILY OF ROCKET VEHICLES, EMPLOYING A CORE PRESSURE-FED, LIQUID PROPULSION UNIT AND ELECTRONICS AND SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPED IN SMALL LOW COST SPACECRAFT PROGRAMS, WILL CUT IN HALF THE PRICE OF LAUNCHING SMALL SUBORBITAL AND ORBITAL PAYLO ...

  7. Comprehensible Descriptions for Fast Processing of Image Data

    SBC: DATAMAT SYSTEMS RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort will apply advanced methods of hybrid learning to problems of detection and identification of sensory events (e.g., boost phase evens). Our approach aims at building a vision system capable of hybrid learning, in which symbolic (rule-based) and subsymbolic (neural network) strategies are integrated to achieve high efficiency and accuracy both in learning human comprehensible se ...

  8. HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTORS WITH IMPROVED CURRENT DENSITIES

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

    THE APPLICATION OF HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTORS IS SEVERELY LIMITED BY THE LOW CURRENT DENSITIES ACHIEVABLE IN BULK MATERIALS, SUCH AS Y1BA2CU3O(7-X), OR 123 FOR SHORT. THE LARGE CURRENT DENSITIES OBSERVED WITHIN INDIVIDUAL GRAINS (AND IN THIN FILMS) ARE REDUCED BY "WEAK LINKS" AT THE GRAIN BOUNDARIES, CAUSED BY MISALIGNMENT OF THE ANISOTROPIC GRAINS AND BY INSULATING IMPURITY PHASES. SOME OF ...

  9. MEGAVOLT MEGAHERTZ PULSE GENERATOR TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A HIGH VOLTAGE PULSE GENERATOR TECHNOLOGY IS BEING DEVELOPEDFOR PRACTICAL BEAM ACCELERATORS, PULSED X-RAY SOURCES AND OTHER PULSE POWER APPLICATIONS. THE SPECIFIC TECHNOLOGYCAPABILITY IS SHORT PULSE WIDTH (10-250 NSEC), HIGH VOLTAGE PULSE (1 MV AND ABOVE) DELIVERED AT A HIGH REPETITION RATE (1 MHZ AND ABOVE). IN THIS PROGRAM THE TECHNOLOGY PERFORMANCE IS BEING INVESTIGATED AND A SMALL SCALE PROOF ...

  10. 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 ...
