  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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, ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. HIGH-SPEED LAUNCHER FOR FRAGMENT SIMULATOR

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN ECONOMICAL FRAGMENT LAUNCH SYSTEM IS NEEDED TO DUPLICATE WARHEAD FRAGMENT/AIR TARGET ENCOUNTER CONDITIONS ASSOCIATED WITH MODERN AIR TO AIR COMBAT. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO PROVIDE A DETAILED CONCEPTUAL DESIGN, INCLUDING BUILDING AND OPERATING COST ESTIMATES, FOR A LAUNCH SYSTEM CAPABLE OF PROJECTING METALLIC, PARALLELEPIPED FRAGMENTS WITH WEIGHTS IN THE RANGE OF 30-250 GRAINS (1.9-16 ...

  7. MINIATURIZED RF COMPONENTS

    SBC: ASTRON WIRELESS TECHNOLIGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ALL RF SYSTEMS HAVE UNDERGONE TREMENDOUS MINIATURIZATION DURING THE LAST FEW DECADES. HOWEVER, THE SIZE OF RF COMPONENTS, SUCH AS DUPLEXERS, FILTERS, MOLATORS HAVE UNDERGONE VERY LITTLE; WHILE THE ANTENNAS HAVE UNDERGONE VIRTUALLY NONE. THROUGH THE USE OF ASTRON'S NEWLY DEVELOPED DIELECTRIC/FERRITE ANTENNA LOADING TECHNIQUES AND RECENT ADVANCES IN SUPERCONDUCTIVITY, THERE IS NOW THE POSSIBILITY OF ...

  9. OPERATIONAL SUPPORT AIRCRAFT MANAGEMENT PLANNING SYSTEM

    SBC: Blythe-nelson            Topic: N/A

    THIS EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP THE REQUIREMENTS AND THE SUBSEQUENT DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A PC BASED ANALYTICAL SYSTEM FOR PPBS JUSTIFICATION; PEACE TIME AND WAR TIME OPERATIONAL PLANNING FOR THE OPTIMIZATION OF LIMITED OPERATIONAL SUPPORT AIRCRAFT ASSETS. PHASE I WILL CONSIST OF 1. IDENTIFYING RELEVANT DATA ELEMENTS WHICH INCLUDE AIRCRAFT COST, PERFORMANCE CAPABILITY AND CRITICAL DEMAND MODEL CO ...

  10. MODELING OF RADOMES SHIELDING SPIRAL ANTENNAS

    SBC: CENTER FOR REMOTE SENSING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    FINITE ELEMENT CODE WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR ELECTROMAGNETIC SCATTERING FROM RADOMES. GENERAL PURPOSE FINITE DIFFERENCE AND FINITE ELEMENT TECHNIQUES FOR ANALYZING ARBITRARY-SHAPED AND INHOMOGENEOUS BODIES OF REVOLUTION HAVE RECENTLY BEEN DEVELOPED BY MITTRA AND HIS COWORKERS. THESE WILL BE ADAPTED FOR THE SPECIFIC SITUATION WHERE THE CLOSE PROXIMITY OF THE RADOME WILL BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT. THE RESU ...
