  1. MOCVD OF CONTINUOUSLY REINFORCED CARBIDES

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    HYPERSONIC AND SUPERSONIC SPEEDS ARE FEASIBLE DUE TO ADVANCES IN AEROSPACE ENGINEERING, VEHICLE DESIGN, AND PROPULSION TECHNOLOGY. THE EFFICIENCIES, RELIABILITY, AND ULTIMATE POTENTIAL OF AIR BREATHING PROPULSION SYSTEMS HINGE UPON NEW MATERIALS THAT CAN SURVIVE THE HARSH COMBUSTION ENVIRONMENTS. HAFNIUM AND ZIRCONIUM CARBIDE AND BORIDE MATRICES ARE CANDIDATE MATERIALS SYSTEMS, BUT ONLY IF MANUFAC ...

  2. DEVELOPMENT OF A LOW LOSS PLANAR HTSC MILLIMETER WAVE MIXER

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    MANY INFRARED AND ELECTRO-OPTICAL IMAGING SYSTEMS ARE CONFOUNDED BY FOG AND DUST. MILLIMETER EAVE IMAGING SYSTEMS WOULD NOT BE AFFECTED BY THESE BATTLEFIELD OBSCURANTS. HOWEVER, THE LIQUID HELIUM COOLING REQUIREMENT OF TODAYS HIGH PERFORMANCE LOW NOISE MIXERS IS BLOCKING THE DEPLOYMENT OF ADVANCED MILLIMETER WAVE COMMUNICATIONS AND IMAGING SYSTEMS. IN PRINCIPAL, JOSEPHSON MIXERS FABRICATED WITH TH ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. HIGH PRESSURE FLOAT ZONE GROWTH OF TIC

    SBC: Crystica Inc            Topic: N/A

    TITANIUM CARBIDE (TIC) IS THE IDEAL SUBSTRATE FOR SINGLE CRYSTAL EPITAXIAL GROWTH OF B-SILICON CARBIDE. THE TITANIUM CARBIDE CRYSTALS NOW AVAILABLE ARE LACKING IN BOTH SIZE AND QUALITY FOR THIS APPLICATION. IT IS BELIEVED THAT BY IMPROVING UPON THE HIGH PRESSURE FLOAT ZONE CRYSTAL GROWTH METHOD NOW USED FOR TIC CRYSTAL GROWTH, BOTH THE QUALITY AND SIZE REQUIREMENTS CAN BE MET. THE PRIMARY EFFORT I ...

  8. TERFENOL-D Lamination Process Cost Reduction

    SBC: Etrema Products, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    All high performance TERFENOL-D sonar devices require the drivers to be laminated for eddy current control. The process of laminating TERFENOL-D to present interlamina resistivity requirements results in low yields due to considerable material loss and is, therefore, a wasteful process. The objective of this program is to define and experimentally verify accurate interlamina resistivity levels f ...

  9. Virtual Vertical Aircraft Signal Trainer

    SBC: FATS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AeroMed Software, L.L.C., proposes to develop an interactive virtual environment simulator for vertical aircraft signal training. The proposed system is intended to provide Landing Signal Enlisted (LSE) trainees with a dynamic training device similar to the operational flight trainers used by aviators. Recent advances in data acquisition, signal processing and graphics software, computer process ...
