  2. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH HEAT FLUX HEAT EXCHANGER

    SBC: Applied Thermodynamic Systems            Topic: N/A

    GAS-TO-LIQUID HEAT EXCHANGERS FIND APPLICATION IN NEARLY EVERY ENERGY CONVERSION AND PROCESS SYSTEM. HOWEVER, DUE TO LOW HEAT FLUXES, THEY ARE EXCESSIVELY LARGE AND EXPENSIVE. LOW HEAT FLUXES ARE CAUSED PRIMARILY BY LOW GAS-SIDE HEAT TRANSFER COEFFICIENTS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDY IS TO DEVELOP A NOVEL FLUIDIZED BED HEAT EXCHANGER WHICH HAS SIGNIFICANTLY GREATER HEAT FLUXES THAN CONVENTIONAL HE ...

  4. CHARACTERIZATION OF OWNSHIP DOPPLER AND TRANSMISSION CHANNEL PARAMETERS BY MEANS OF CLUTTER MEASUREMENTS

    SBC: Breed & Harvel Assocs            Topic: N/A

    IT HAS BEEN FOUND, FROM EXPERIENCE GAINED ON THE CRITICAL SEA TEST (CST) AND THE LOW FREQUENCY ACOUSTICS (LFA) PROGRAMS, THAT THE ACOUSTIC ENVIRONMENT FOR LONG RANGE ACTIVE SYSTEMS IS UNIQUE. A PRINCIPAL CONCERN IS CLUTTER DISCRIMINATION, AND MANAGEMENT, AND ONE OF THE PRINCIPAL CLUTTER DISCRIMINANTS IS DOPPLER. IF ONE CAN ELIMINATE OWNSHIP'S MOTION, CLUTTER CAN BE CHARACTERIZED AS HAVING ZERO VEL ...

  5. DATA COMPRESSION FOR ACOUSTIC SURVEILLANCE DATA

    SBC: Breed & Harvel Assocs            Topic: N/A

    THE TREND IN ACOUSTIC SURVEILLANCE DEVELOPMENT IN THE LAST DECADE HAS BEEN FOR A GREATER NUMBER OF ACOUSTIC ARRAYS, EACH WITH A GREATER NUMBER OF SENSORS, AND AS A CONSEQUENCE A GREATER NUMBER OF BEAMS TO BE PROCESSED, TRANSMITTED, AND STORED. IN THE FUTURE THE QUANTITY WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE. AT THE SAME TIME THERE IS A REQUIREMENT TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF THE DATA WHICH IS STORED AND TRANSMI ...

  7. Dynamic Firing Zone Imaging System

    SBC: Conceptual Systems & Software Inc            Topic: N/A

    An automated dynamic firing zone generation imaging system is needed to increase the effectiveness and utility of shipboard weapon systems. The current manual firing zone definition process is manpower intensive, complex, and cannot account for motion or changing topside configuration. These limitations greatly restrict the lethality and utility of shipboard weapons. This project proposes a dyna ...

  8. Unified HP/RT Development to Deployment Middleware Platform

    SBC: Conceptual Systems & Software Inc            Topic: N/A

    A significant problem for modern combat control system implementations is the incompatible development and deployment environments. These applications have specific performance requirements that until recently were only accurately obtained on the target installation system. However, for various logistic and economic reasons, the platforms utilized for advanced applications have typically been inc ...
