  1. An Ultrathin Foil Neutral Density Filter Set for the Infrared

    SBC: Luxel Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A solution to the need for OD 3 to OD 10 neutral density filters in the infrared (2 to 25 um) with flat wavelength dependence is suggested using submicron thickness polymer films as substrates for multi-layer or co-deposited metallic alloy coatings. Initial studies used Lexan and although they showed feasibility, a stronger and more temperature resistant ultrathin substrate such as polyimide film ...

  2. A Diode Laser Multigas Analyzer for Advanced Detection of Fires

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences will develop a novel fire detection technology based on optical spectroscopy, using diode lasers and fiber optics. Rapid, quantitative detection of part per million concentrations (or better) of multiple gases, including carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen cyanide, hydrogen chloride, and a fiber optical distribution network permits one laser to be used for at least 800 di ...

  3. Long-Range Communications for the Aerosonde Autonomous Sounding Aircraft

    SBC: The Insitu Group            Topic: N/A

    In 1995, we started field trials of miniature autonomous aircraft, an aerosonde, for long-range weather reconnaissance. With a maximum weight of only 12 kg, and a wingspan of 3 m, it has about 1500 km range and 24 hours endurance. This early version leaves much room for improvement, and we expect to double range and endurance by mid-1997. Still another doubling ultimately should be feasible, to ...

  4. Ultrahigh-Pressure Cryogenic Jet Cutting of Steel

    SBC: Waterjet Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    This project will advance the state of the art of ultrahigh-pressure (UHP) jet machining technology. Existing technology uses water as the working fluid that accelerates abrasive particles in high-velocity, highly coherent jets. Despite successful demonstration and industrial utilization of the technology in cutting, cleaning, drilling, turning, milling, and surface-preparation operations, it re ...

  5. A Virtual Machining and Inspection System (VMIS)

    SBC: Icamp, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of the VMIS is to allow manufacturers the luxury of testing and perfecting manufacturing plans long before a single machine tool is turned on and resources are committed. The VMIS will allow the user to select an available machine tool and an available inspection device, specify a proposed inspection plan and a dimensional analysis procedure, and then build and inspect hundreds (or ev ...

  7. DEVELOPMLENT OF A LAUNDRY MONITOR FOR DETECTION OF HOT PARTICLE CONTAMINATION

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    TWO APPROACHES WILL BE EXAMINED TO SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THESENSITIVITY OF LAUNDRY MONITORS TO DETECT AND SPECIFY LOCATION OF HOT PARTICLES ON LAUNDERED GARMENTS. THESE PROPOSED TECNIQUES HAVE HIGH POTENTIAL FOR DETECTING BOTH LOW ENERGY BETA AND ALPHA PARTICLE RADIATION AS WELL AS IMPROVING SENSITIVITY BY REDUCING BACKGROUND COUNT RATE.

  8. TWO NEW NDE TECHNIQUES FOR INSPECTION OF CONTAINMENT WELDS BENEATH COATINGS

    SBC: PHYSICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    INSPECTION OF PAINTED OR COATED CARBON STEEL SURFACES OFTEN INVOLVES THE REMOVAL OF THE COATING PRIOR TO INSPECTION, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE USE OF MAGNETIC PARTICLE TESTING (MT) IS REQUIRED. IN THE CASE OF EXAMINATION OF CONTAINMENT VESSEL WALLS IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS, THE REMOVAL IS TIME CONSUMING, RESULTING IN INCREASED RADIATION EXPOSURE TO WORKERS. IN ADDITION, THE REMOVAL MUST BE DONE WITHOUT C ...

  9. Light Source for Cavity Ring-Down Spectrometer

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Cavity Ring-Down (CRD) spectroscopy is developing into a precise tool for measuring gaseous contaminants in ultrahigh vacuum and other environments. Optimum sensitivity is obtained by driving the CRD spectrometer in the mid-IR part of the spectrum with about 100 mWatts of average power at 5 kHz and with pulse lengths of 10-50 nsec. Bandwidths of 100 MHz are required. There are no commercial lasers ...

  10. A Ruggedized System for Measuring Extreme Winds

    SBC: Caregiver Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop technology, termed a Ruggedized Wind Measurement System (RWMS), to measure directly extreme winds with high space and time resolution, focusing on the winds that occur beneath hurricanes at land fall. This development effort will include design, fabrication of two prototype RWMS units, and a series of proof-of-concept demonstrations in strong mountain-induced downslope and severe t ...
