  1. NANOMETER-SIZE STEP HEIGHT TEST STRUCTURES

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

    MCNC PROPOSES A FEASIBILITY STUDY AND EVALUATION OF THREE PROMISING APPROACHES TO THE FABRICATION OF SURFACE TEST STRUCTURES ON SILICON. SURFACE FEATURES ON THE FIRST STRUCTURE WILL BE PRODUCED BY CONTROLLABLY ETCHING THERMALLYGROWN OXIDES. FEATURES ON THE SECOND WILL BE MADE BY ETCHING PIEZOELECTRIC THIN FILMS. USING THE PIEZOELECTRIC FILM AS PART OF A CAPACITOR, STEP-HEIGHT CAN BE VARIED AND PRO ...

  4. ON-BOARD PROCESSING OF DOGFISH AND SKATES

    SBC: Fisherman Joint Venture            Topic: N/A

    THE DECLINE IN THE NEW ENGLAND (NE) GROUND FISH STOCK IS SEVERELY AFFECTING THE NE FISHERIES' ECONOMY. TO REVERSE THIS DESTRUCTIVE TREND, NMFS HAS THE DIFFICULT AND UNPOPULARTASK OF IMPLEMENTING STOCK RECOVERY PROGRAMS WHICH REQUIRE CATCH REDUCTIONS. NMFS REPORTS 70% OF PRESENT FISH STOCKS ARE DOGFISH AND SKATES WHICH ARE UNDER-UTILIZED AND ARE GROUND FISH PREDATORS. ALTHOUGH THESE ABUNDANT FISH H ...

  5. NOVEL HOOK AND LOOP TEXTILE PREFORMS FOR LIQUID COMPOSITE MOLDING

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    FIBER REINFORCED POLYMERIC COMPOSITES CAN REDUCE WEIGHT, INCREASE CRASHWORTHINESS, AND REDUCE CORROSION RELATIVE TO METALS. HOWEVER, LOW COST MANUFACTURING APPROACHES ARE NEEDED IN ORDER FOR THESE MATERIALS TO BE COMPETITIVE IN HIGH VOLUME AUTOMOTIVE APPLICATIONS. LIQUID COMPOSITE MOLDING (LCM) IS RECOGNIZED AS A PROMISING METHOD FOR RAPID, LOW COST FABRICATION. LOW COST, COMPLEX PREFORMS ARE NEED ...

  6. FEASIBILITY OF A C-BAND SCATTEROMETER TO REMOTELY SENSE HURRICANE PARAMETERS

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH AIMED AT IMPROVING NOAA'S MEASUREMENTS OF HURRICANESURFACE WINDS. WE SPECIFICALLY PROPOSE TO DESIGN A MICROWAVE SCATTEROMETER THAT CAN BE USED TO MEASURE WIND SPEED AND DIRECTION FROM RADAR ECHOS SCATTERED FROM THE OCEAN SURFACE. WE PLAN TO INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING A SPINNING MICROSTRIP ARRAY MOUNTED ON THE BELLY OF THE NOAA P-3 HURRICANE RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT. THE PROPOSED ...

  8. RADAR HIGH ANGLE RESOLUTION TECHNIQUES

    SBC: ADCOM SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY,INC.            Topic: N/A

    1Innovative techniques for radar high angle resolution are proposed for investigation in a Phase I effort to enable the resolution of the direction of arrival (DOA) of returns from multiple targets that fall within one beamwidth and within the same range and Doppler Cells. The techniques proposed emphasize the pursuit for optimal utilization of available aperture space, by a combination of arrange ...

  9. An Underwater High-Pressure Gauge for Warhead Evaluation

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    change induced in the wavelength of ruby R-line fluorescence. Timehe resolution will be 0.1 microsecond. Axi innovative detector of this wavelength shift avoids the need for a dispersive optical system and streak camera, as previously used. The fluorescence will be excited by an argon ion laser. materials having less temperature sensitivity than ruby, and the use of non-laser excitation sources.

  10. ACCURATE LOW SAMPLE RATE TRACKING OF HIGHLY MANEUVERING TARGETS USING H-TO INFINITY- NONLINEAR FILTERS

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This exploratory development proposal addresses a class of novel algorithms specifically designed for tracking and engaging maneuvering air, naval or ground targets. The key technical innovation is the development of linear and nonlinear target tracking algorithms using the recent results in H(Infinity) estimation methodology to modify the classical Kalman filter and extended Kalman filter algorit ...
