  1. ADHERENT OXIDATION RESISTANT COATING FOR POLYMER MATRIX COMPOSITES

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1992 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  2. A ROBUST & MANUFACTURABLE ALTERNATOR & SUSPENSION FOR FREE PISTON STIRLING ENGINES

    SBC: CLEVER FELLOWS INNOVATION CONSORTIUM            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT INVESTIGATES A COMPOUND, FLEXURE SUSPENSION ANDSPIN-PROHIBITED ALTERNATOR GEOMETRY FOR FREE-PISTON, STIRLING-ENGINE POWER CONVERSION. THE SYSTEM APPEARS TO OFFER MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS IN RELIABILITY, MASS AND SIZE, AND MANUFACTURING COST. THE PROJECT WILL PROVIDE A DESIGN AND LIFE TEST FOR THE SUSPENSION SYSTEM AND A COMPLETE CONCEPTUAL-PRELIMINARY DESIGN OF THE ASSOCIATED ALTERNATOR. CU ...

  3. A METHOD OF IMPROVING THE DYNAMIC PERFORMANCE OF TELEROBOTICS SYSTEMS

    SBC: Convolve Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP AN APPROACH THATCOMMANDS TELEROBOTS TO MOVE WITH GREATLY INCREASED DYNAMIC PERFORMANCE. THIS PERFORMANCE INCREASE WILL BE ACHIEVED BY ELIMINATING THE EXCITATION OF OSCILLATIONS IN THE MACHINE. SETTLING TIME, THEREFORE, WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED. THE FEASIBILITY OF A NEW TECHNIQUE CALLED IMPULSE SHAPING WILL BE INVESTIGATED. A RUDIMENTARY VERSION OF T ...

  4. A 350 DEGREE C 6H SILICON CARBIDE THYRISTOR

    SBC: CREE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1992 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  5. A FULL RESOLUTION AUTOSTEREOSCOPIC DISPLAY WITH HOLOGRAM-LIKE "LOOK AROUND" AND A WIDE VIEWING ZONE

    SBC: Dimension Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PHASE I PLAN IS TO BUILD A PROOF-OF-CONCEPT MODEL FOR A FULL-RESOLUTION, AUTOSTEREOSCOPIC LCD DISPLAY. IT WILL USE A SUPER-FAST, FERROELECTRIC LCD IN COMBINATION WITH AN INNOVATIVE FLAT-PANEL, LCD-BASED AUTOSTEREOSCOPIC THREE-DIMENSIONAL DISPLAY TECHNOLOGY THAT REQUIRES NO GLASSES. TWO IMPORTANT FEATURES WILL BE IMPLEMENTED: AN EXPANDED VIEWING ZONE AND A HOLOGRAM-LIKE "LOOK-AROUND" CAPABILITY ...

    SBIR Phase II 1992 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  6. AUTOSTEREOSCOPIC 3D DISPLAY WITH INCREASED RESOLUTION

    SBC: Dimension Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1992 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  7. DEVELOPMENT OF AN ACTIVE FLUOROMETER FOR MEASURING PRIMARY PRODUCTIVITY IN THE OCEANS

    SBC: G Miller Machine Co Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN ACTIVE FLUOROMETER USING A CONTAINED LIGHT SOURCE WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR RAPID MEASUREMENTS OF PRIMARY PRODUCTIVITY OF MARINE PHYTOPLANKTON IN SITU. THE FLUOROMETER CAN BE USED AS A WATER-PROFILING INSTRUMENT ON BOARD SHIP, OR AS A SELF-CONTAINED DEVICE ON MOORED OR DRIFTING BUOYS. THE INSTRUMENT WILL PERMIT PRECISE ESTIMATES OF OCEAN PRIMARY PRODUCTIVITY, BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE ENVIRONMENT ...

    SBIR Phase II 1992 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. QUICK LOOK MODAL TESTING OF FLEXIBLE STRUCTURES

    SBC: Garman Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN INNOVATIVE, MODAL-TEST ANALYSIS TECHNIQUE FOR SUCCESSFUL GROUND TESTING OF LARGE, PRECISION SPACE STRUCTURES WILL BE INVESTIGATED. TRADITIONAL APPROACHES TO MODAL TESTING ARE HAMPERED BY THE OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF DATA THAT MUST BE ACQUIRED, STORED, AND ANALYZED FOR THESE LARGE, FLEXIBLE STRUCTURES, WHICH REFLECTS DIRECTLY ON TESTING COSTS AND TIME. THE APPLICATION OF DATA-COMPRESSION PRINCIPLE ...

    SBIR Phase II 1992 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. AN INVESTIGATION OF SMART SKIN TECHNOLOGY FOR VORTEX FLOW DETECTION

    SBC: INNOVATIVE DYNAMICS INC            Topic: N/A

    INNOVATIVE METHODS FOR MEASURING AND CONTROLLING VORTEX DOMINATED FLOWS MUST BE DEVELOPED TO ACHIEVE ENHANCED MISSION PERFORMANCE OF ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY FIGHTERS. THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO DEFINE AND EXPERIMENTALLY QUANTIFY TECHNIQUES FOR MEASURING SURFACE FLOW PATTERNS AND VORTEX STRUCTURES. THE INITIAL PHASE I EFFORT WILL DEMONSTRATE AN INNOVATIVE CONCEPT BASED ON "SMA ...

    SBIR Phase I 1992 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. SHAPE MEMORY ALLOYS FOR USE IN ROTORCRAFT DEICING SYSTEMS

    SBC: INNOVATIVE DYNAMICS INC            Topic: N/A

    INCREASED READINESS AND SAFETY DEMANDS BEING MADE ON HELICOPTERS REQUIRE AN ALL-WEATHER CAPABILITY. WHILE SEVERAL PROMISING DE-ICERS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED FOR FIXED WING AIRCRAFT, THE REQUIREMENT STILL EXISTS FOR A RELIABLE DE-ICING SYSTEM COMPATIBLE WITH HELICOPTER BLADES. THE IDEAL DE-ICER MUST BE SMALL, REQUIRE A MINIMUM AMOUNT OF INTERFACE HARDWARE, AND BE ABLE TO OPERATE EFFICIENTLY ON LOW POWE ...
