  1. GAMMA RAY SPECTROMETER/DOSIMETER

    SBC: Applied Inventions Corp.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1990 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  2. 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 ...

  3. LONG RANGE RADIOACTIVE PLUME TRANSPORT SIMULATION MODEL/CODE

    SBC: Sigma Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I RESEARCH IS TO DETERMINE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF A LONG RANGE RADIOACTIVE PLUME TRANSPORT MODEL/CODE FOR THE NRC. THIS CODE WOULD BE USED TO SIMULATE THE MOVEMENT, DISPERSION, DECAY, AND DEPOSITION OF RADIONUCLIDES RELEASED FROM SEVERE NUCLEAR REACTOR ACCIDENTS, SUCH AS THE CHERNOBYL ACCIDENT. IT IS DESIRED THAT ALL RELEVANT PHYSICAL AND CHEMICA ...

  4. ATOMIC LAYER EPITAXY OF DIAMOND

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ABILITY TO GROW HETEROSPITAXIAL THIN FILMS OF DIAMOND IS LIMITED IN PART BY THE PROPENSITY OF SUCH FILMS TO NUCLEATE AT MULTIPLE SITES WITHOUT PROPER ORIENTATION. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A 2-DIMENSIONAL GROWTH PROCESS BY ATOMIC LAYER EPITAXY (ALE) USING ADVANCED MOLECULAR BEAM TECHNIQUES. THE PHASE I RESEARCH WILL FOCUS ON DETERMINING THE MICROCHEMISTRY OF DEPOSITION PROCESSES AND THUS ALLOW FOR ...

  5. PASSIVE NON-COOPERATIVE TARGET RECOGNITION SENSOR

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE POLARIZATION CHARACTERISTICS OF AIRCRAFT INFRARED SIGNATURES HAVE BEEN STUDIED AS A MEANS TO ENHANCE THE PERFORMANCE OF LONG RANGE PASSIVE INFRARED DETECTION SYSTEMS OPERATING IN THE PRESENCE OF CLUTTER. THESE STUDIES ALSO GENERATED EVIDENCE THAT THE AMOUNT AND ANGLE OF POLARIZATION AS WELL AS ITS SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION ARE UNIQUE BETWEEN DIFFERENT TYPES AND CLASSES OF AIRCRAFT. IT MAY BE POSSIB ...

  6. A NEW NUCLEAR SURVEY INSTRUMENT WITH IMAGING CAPABILITY

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MODERN MILITARY OPERATIONS HAVE MADE IT NECESSARY FOR COMMANDERS TO HAVE RADIOLOGICAL INFORMATION CONCERNING NUCLEAR CONTAMINATION OF OCCUPIED AREAS. THIS INCREASING NEED FOR MORE ACCURATE AND RELIABLE INFORMATION FOR THE PURPOSE OF LOCATING AND IDENTIFYING POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS NUCLEAR SOURCES, HAS LED TO NEED FOR IMPROVED INSTRUMENTATION. IN PARTICULAR, A NUCLEAR SURVEY INSTRUMENT WITH IMAGING C ...

  7. POLARON INDUCED RESONANCE MECHANISMS OF DEUTERIUM-LITHIUM FUSION IN A CRYSTALLINE PALLADIUM LATTICE

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

    CONVENTIONAL FUSION PROCESSES ARE NOT EXPECTED TO ACHIEVE BREAK-EVEN WITHIN THE NEXT DECADE. COLD FUSION IS AN EXCITING OPTION, SINCE IT OFFERS AN INEXPENSIVE ALTERNATIVE AND SOME CLAIM BREAK-EVEN HAS ALREADY BEEN ACHIEVED. HOWEVER, TO DAT, NO IN-DEPTH THEORETICAL STUDY OF COLD FUSION HAS BEEN CONDUCTED. LOW NEUTRON FLUX AND THE USE OF LITHIUM HYDROXIDE AS AN ELECTROLYTE IN THE FUSION CELLS USED B ...

  8. LASER BRAZING PROCESS DEVELOPMENT FOR CERAMIC-TO-METAL JOINING OF RADOME COMPONENTS

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

    THERE IS A NEED FOR UNIQUE JOING/BONDING PROCESSES THAT CAN DIRECTLY JOIN CERAMIC IR AND RF DOME COMPONENTS TO CYLINDRICAL METAL SURFACES. EXPOSURE TO THE HIGH TEMPERATURES ASSOCIATED WITH CONVENTIONAL BRAZING PROCESSES CAN DEGRADE THE OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF MATERIALS AND PROMOTE CHEMICAL REACTION BETWEEN THE BRAZE MATERIAL AND THE CERAMIC THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE HEAT AFFECTED ZONE (HAZ). THEREFORE, ...

  9. INTEGRATED PLANAR MAGNETIC DEVICES FOR MEGA-HERTZ FREQUENCY HIGH DENSITY POWER SUPPLIES

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

    RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN VERY HIGH SPEED INTEGRATED CIRCUITS (VHSIC) HAVE LED TO THE NEED FOR HIGH EFFICIENCY AND POWER DENITY RESONANT MODE AND SWITCHED MODE POWER SUPPLIES, OPERATING AT FREQUENCIES IN EXCESS O 1 MEGAHERTZ (MHZ). THE SPECIFICATIONS FOR THESE POWER SUPPLIES ARE STINGENT DUE TO REQUIREMENTS NECESSARY FOR RELIABLE POWER SOURCES. THESE REQUIREMENTS ARE DRIVING OPERATING FREQUENCIES TO ...

  10. INDEXING OF TECHNICAL INFORMATION FOR COMPUTER AIDED ACQUISITION AND LOGISTICS SUPPORT (CALS)

    SBC: Angstrom            Topic: N/A

    PROJECT OBJECTIVES ARE TO MODEL AND ANALYZE CURRENT NAVAL SUPPLY SYSTEM ORGANIZATION AND ITS ASSOCIATED INTERFACES AS IT RELATES TO THE SUPPORTABILITY OF THE WEAPON SYSTEM ACQUISITION PROGRAM AND DOD CALS INITIATIVES. OUTCOME OF PROCESS MODELING WILL INCLUDE IDENTIFICATION OF UNIVERSAL INDEXING SCHEME, PROPOSED INFORMATION SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE AND PROTOTYPE MODEL FOR PURPOSES OF DEMONSTRATION AND V ...
