  1. Embedded Sensors via Laser Engineered Net Shaping

    SBC: OPTOMEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Optomec Design Company proposes to use Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENSTM), a Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing (RP&M) technology currently under development at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), as a new method for integrating instrumentation (e.g., embedded sensors) into metal structural components. SNL has demonstrated the ability of the LENSTM technology to produce near net shape stainles ...

  4. Object-Oriented Hierarchical Tool for Large-Scale Development

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a novel and ambitious tool for large-scale development: a fourth-generation computer language (4GL) based upon an object-oriented generalization of the hierarchical block diagram paradigm, with powerful integrated simulation capabilities. Developers would assemble a prototype in a connect-the-blocks visual programming environment, test and evaluate it via simulation, then ite ...

  5. High Performance Fault Tolerant Missile Control System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Future missiles will be required to handle many diverse missions. These missions will require increased speed, precision, and survivability under a wider variety of flight conditions than current missiles. Therefore the role of modern flight control systems (FCS) must be expanded well beyond the traditional functions of augmenting stability and controllability with very limited control authority. ...

  7. Infrared Detectors Using Mercury Manganese Telluride


    In the proposed research we will investigate methods for improving the performance of very long wavelength infrared (VLWIR) photovoltaic detectors fabricated from Hg1-xMnxTe. This material was chosen because Hg1-xMnxTe has been shown to have superior mechanical, chemical and thermal stability compared Hg1-xCdxTe. During previously SBIR-BMDO funded work, Brimrose Corporation successfully fabricate ...
