  1. PLASMA DRIVEN WATER SHOCK

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH FIDELITY, HIGH ENERGY DENSITY WATER SHOCK SIMULATOR APPEARS FEASIBLE. MISSION RESEARCH CORPORATION (MRC), WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF THE NEW MEXICO ENGINEERING RESEARCH INSTITUTE (NMERI), PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AN ELECTRICAL WATER SHOCK SIMULATOR WHERE AN ELECTRICAL DISCHARGE ACROSS A WELL DEFINED ELECTRODE GAP WILL PRODUCE A HOT PLASMA EXPANSION WHICH RESULTS IN A FAST RISE PRESSUR ...

  2. PRELAUNCH TORPEDO COMMUNICATIONS USING ELECTROMAGNETIC INDUCTION

    SBC: Sandia Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A PHASE I RESEARCH PROJECT TO EVALUATE ELECTROMAGNETIC INDUCTION AS A TECHNIQUE FOR PRELAUNCH TORPEDO COMMUNICATIONS. IN THIS CONCEPT, A MAGNETIC FLUX IS GENERATED IN A TOROIDAL-LIKE CORE. THE CORE WOULD BE MOUNTED ON A TORPEDO TUBE. A SMALL BLADE ANTENNA IS MOUNTED ON THE TORPEDO AND CAN DETECT OR EXCITE THE MAGNETIC FIELD IN THE CORE. TWO-WAY COMMUNICATION IS THEN POSSIBL ...

  4. LIGHT WEIGHT ROTARY COMPRESSOR EVALUATION FOR ADVANCED MARINE PROPULSION APPLICATIONS

    SBC: APPLIED TECHNOLOGY ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    ROTARY COMPRESSORS ARE CAPABLE OF PROVIDING LARGER VOLUMES OF COMPRESSED GAS THAN RECIPROCATING MACHINES. THIS IS PRIMARILY RELATED TO THE FACT THAT ROTARY MACHINES CAN ROTATE AT HIGHER SPEEDS THAN RECIPROCATING DEVICES. A HIGH EFFICIENCY, LARGE DISPLACEMENT ROTARY COMPRESSOR OFFERS VERSATILITY AND FEATURES THAT EXISTING RECIPROCATING COMPRESSORS DO NOT POSSESS. AN ADVANCED MARINE PROPULSION CONCE ...

  5. Tactile Transducer Design/Development

    SBC: Engineering Acoustics Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the proposed SBIR is the design and development of a small, lightweight tactile transducer which produces a vibratory stimulus above the sensory/recognition threshold of the skin. A novel transducer element, based on a miniature, laterally acting linear motor driving a skin contactor is proposed. The transducer includes a mechanical impedance matching device which enables effici ...

  6. Growth of Ce-LiSAF/LiCAF for Transversely-Pumped Ultraviolet Solid State Lasers

    SBC: Lightning Optical Corp            Topic: N/A

    Tunability of laser output in the ultraviolet region of the spectrum has typically only been available only with doubled dye lasers. Their toxicity, size and complexity have made them undesirable for many applications, especially in areas where Recent research has demonstrated the feasibility of substitution of trivalent cerium into the colquiriite lattice, which has received considerable at ...

  7. Integrated Geotechnical-Acoustic Marine Soil Measurement Device

    SBC: Precision Signal, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this research, a miniature computer based chirp sonar will be developed for making rapid surveys of offshore sediments. The sonar reflection data will be integrated to both differential GPS navigation and spot geotechnical measurements in a manner that will provide rapid large scale assessment of marine soil properties. The cumulative survey results will be presented, in real time, in the form ...

  9. Submarine Low Cost Littoral Water Sonar Passive Localization System

    SBC: Applied Measurement Systems,            Topic: N/A

    The new joint mission scenarios and stealth interdiction objectives for the U.S. Navy have resulted in the need for improved sensor systems for operations in the littoral environment. A High Frequency Towed Array (HFRA) sonar system, operating in the same frequency band as hull mounted systems, provides better detection, classification, and localization capabilities,and reduces ship maneuverabilit ...

  10. Low-Cost, Fault-Tolerant Controls for Unmanned Aircraft

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Autonomous unmanned systems require provisions for fault detection and handling. Multiply-redundant schemes typically used in aerospace applications are prohibitively expensive for general applications, especially where low cost or small size are critical. A new strategy, proposed herein, offers the potential for low-cost fault-tolerant control of paramter-dependent systems that will be useful in ...
