  1. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The pressing need exists within industry to accurately measure high aspect ratio microscale structures. For example, diesel injector nozzles are manufactured with microscale holes ranging from 50-200 micrometers in diameter and 3-5 mm depths. One fundamental challenge is to nondestrucvely measure these features in order to validate models, enhance manufacturing processes, and reduce fuel emissions ...

  3. Opto-Mechanical Modeling of Low Cost, High Precision, Micro Components for Fiber Optic Gyroscopes

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB052002

    Polaris Sensor Technologies proposes to combine an innovative crossover-free Fiber Optic Gyroscope (FOG) sensor coil winding configuration, which is based on low cost single mode fiber and retains built-in thermal symmetry, with an opto-mechanical model of this novel device to enhance FOG capability. The cost and thermal sensitivity associated with current FOG sensor coils will be minimized throug ...

  4. Critical Data Processing for Chemical Warfare Simulant Field Testing- Advanced Data Fusion

    SBC: Torch Technologies, Inc.            Topic: CBD05110

    To properly measure (and understand) the performance of a standoff detector, properties of the challenge cloud must be known. Meteorological models, such as HPAC and VLSTRACK, have proven to be reasonably good tools for predicting cloud properties. However, a problem with these tools is that they deliver ensemble averages and may not describe a specific cloud to the detail required. The Dugway ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. PASSIVE WATER REMOVAL FOR COMPRESSED AIR SYSTEMS

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A CONCEPT FOR PASSIVE REMOVAL OF WATER FROM COMPRESSED AIR SUPPLY LINES IS PROPOSED. RELYING ON SURFACE TENSION EFFECTS TO REMOVE THE WATER, THIS CONCEPT IS FEASIBLE FROM A PRACTICAL STANDPOINT BECAUSE OF AN INVENTIVE MANUFACTURING APPROACH DEVELOPED BY ALABAMA CRYOGENIC ENGINEERING. THE PHASE I EFFORT INCLUDES THEORETICAL MODELING AND FEASIBILITY TESTING OF CRITICAL ASPECTS OF THE CONCEPT. RESULT ...

  7. DEMONSTRABLY CORRECT COMPILATION (DCC)

    SBC: Baldwin/mchugh Assoc., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A TECHNIQUE FOR OBTAINING TRUSTWORTHY COMPILATION BASED ON A COMPILATION CHECKER (SIMILAR TO A PROOF CHECKER) IS PROPOSED. THE TRANSFORMATIONS USED IN A COMPILER WILL BE FORMALLY SPECIFIED AND VERIFIED USING INTERPRETER EQUIVALENCE METHODS. THE COMPILER WILL BE INSTRUMENTED TO PRODUCE A TRACE OF THE TRANSFORMATIONS APPLIED IN THE COMPILATION OF A GIVEN PROGRAM. THE COMPILATION CHECKER WILL VALIDAT ...

  9. DIAGNOSTIC INSTRUMENTATION FOR BEHIND-ARMOR DEBRIS USING HIGH-SPEED LASER PHOTODETECTION

    SBC: DYNETICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DYNETICS PROPOSES A NOVEL HIGH-SPEED PHOTONIC DIAGNOSTIC TOOL FOR CHARACTERIZING THE BEHIND-ARMOR EFFECTS OF CHEMICAL-ENERGY WARHEADS AND ARMOR-DEFEAT PHENOMENA. BY SUBDIVIDING THE BEHIND-ARMOR VOLUME INTO REGIONS THAT ARE CONTINUOUSLY MONITORED WITH LASER BEAMS AND PHOTODETECTORS, PASSING PARTICLES ARE DETECTED SINCE THEY MODULATE THE PHOTODETECTOR OUTPUTS. POST-PROCESSING OF THE DIGITIZED, MULTI ...
