  1. Rectifying Junctions for High Temperature, High Power Electronics

    SBC: 3c Semiconductors            Topic: N/A

    The single most important type of metal/SiC junction is the n-type, rectifying Schottky diode, because it is the voltage blocking junction in all majority carrier devices. A reliable junction of this type for n-type SiC is the key to its development for high temperature, power conditioning electronics. Phase I will demonstrate that osmium is the ideal metal for forming such junctions. Phase II wil ...

  2. Special Architecture to Break Speed Barriers in Real-Time Applications for Automatic Target Recognition

    SBC: 3D-Computing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The 3D-Flow Processor system is a new concept in very fast, real-time system architectures. The throughput of this system can reach up to 100 millin frames/sec, yet unlike currently available systems of comparable speed, it is fully programmable and extremely flexible. Algorithms for processing information from the input of multiple sensor can easily be implemented on a 3D-Flow system to achiev ...

  3. Processing of Selectively-Discontinuous-Fiber (SDF) Composite Materials

    SBC: Advanced Composite Operations            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is directed at creating discontinuous unidirectional composite from continuous unidirectional prepreg. The process, Selectively-Discontinuous-Fiber (SDF), introduces micro-cuts in preimpregnated unidirectional materials at specified locations. This process will allow unidirectional composite prepreg to be used for the fabrication of complex-compound components that have be ...

  4. Augmenting Fire Fighter Training With Virtual Reality Technology

    SBC: 5, Inc. (full Immersion            Topic: N/A

    Current fire fighting training methods are possibly lacking maximum effectiveness due to increasing safety and environmental regulation. Additionally, performance measurement in large classes becomes difficult unless trainees have identical training scenarios and evaluations. This proposal details the analysis of current training methods and subsequent emulation of them using virtual reality (VR ...

  5. Ground-Penetrating Radar for Minefield Detection and Mapping

    SBC: Aes International Corp            Topic: N/A

    The AES International Corporation (AESI) of College Station, Texas, in concert with Texas A&M University personnel, can build an airborne ground-penetrating radar system to detect land mines from an Unmanned Airborne Vehicle (UAV). The radar itself will be a totally new and fully airworthy flight demonstration unit, the principles and characteristics of which will be conceptually similar to two p ...

  6. Fiber Optic Coupled Infrared Focal Plane Array (FOCIRFPA)

    SBC: Anawah, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AMI utilizes a technique known as the "ribbon wind" approach to manufacture infrared fiber image bundles. The ribbon wind approach provides a unique opportunity to manufacture relatively low cost, large format, medium resolution infrared fiberoptic image bundles for industrial, commercial and military applications. Indeed, this approach has been applied successfully by numerous fiberoptic manufa ...

  7. Embedded Optical Fiber Sensors in Solid Rocket Motor Cases

    SBC: Astro Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This research project will investigate the use of optical-fiber sensors within a solid rocket motor case. THese sensors will be multi-functional and possess the ability to measure displacement (or strain) and temperature. They will be capable of embedment "in-site" or can be bonded to the exterior of motors that have already been manufactured. If successful, the effect of forces exerted on the ...

  8. Artificial Intelligence and Visual Techniques for Course of Action (COA) Development and Analysis

    SBC: AUSTIN INFO SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to establish the technical foundation for, and the feasibility of, a tactical decision aid that can be used by a commander and staff to develop and analyze courses of action (COA). This project will combine object-oriented and distributed computing technologies into an integrated system architecture and design. Successful techniques from artificial intelligence r ...

  9. Evaluation of Analog Interface for Dosimetry Temperature Probes

    SBC: Automated Instruments            Topic: N/A

    Measuring temperature in specimens being heated by electromagnetic energy requires the use of special probes. The temperature probes must be specially designed to minimize electromagnetic field perturbations. Several types of non-perturbing temperature measurement probes have been investigated and developed. Many employ optical fibers rather than electrical conductors to avoid the e ...

  10. Physical Process Modeling & Simulation for Distributive Interactive

    SBC: Baker Engineering and Risk Consultants Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop software algorithms which can be integrated in a Distributive Interactive Simulation (DIS) environment and which model the following wartime effects. Explosion fireball and smoke Building structure failures Debris throws and roll Drift of chemical agents and smoke The Phase I development of these algorithms will be accomplished utilizing esta ...
