  1. Validation and security verification using a holographic phase mask correlator

    SBC: Accuwave Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Accuwave Corporation will study the feasibility of a volume holographic, phase-encoded optical image correlator for credit card and document validation and security application. Fourier transform holograms of a phase-encoded input image are stored using wavelength multiplexed holographic gratings in a photorefractive crystal. High spatial resolution images can be sotred with low crosstalk using ...

  2. Intelligent Flexible Fixturing System

    SBC: ACT Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Two approaches are proposed to attack the problems of fixturing process. First, a novel hardware holding system, Dexterous Vise, is proposed. Functionally, a single Dexterous Vise is capable of revealing four faces of the clamped workpiece to the cutting tool without re-fixturing, which actually increases one degree of freedom to the machine tool. A pair of Dexterous Vises, the "Dual-Vise", ena ...

  7. Hydrogen Supply System for Small PEM Fuel Cell Stacks

    SBC: ANALYTIC POWER LLC            Topic: N/A

    To Operate effectively, PEM small fuel cells stacks need a chemical hydride hydrogen generator. The chemical hydride digital reactor suggested in the proposed program will provide about 2.5 kWH of energy in a5 pound package.--almost three times the energy density of a BA5590 battery. Studies and experiments will be conducted with spe ...

  9. Trivalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: Applied Electroless Concepts,            Topic: N/A

    A new Navy process substitutes low toxicity trivalent chromium for toxic hexavalent chromium in aluminum conversion coatings. Further work is needed to investigate variations on the original formulations, with special consideration to formulas useful with common alloys of aluminum. Both a yellow and a blue-bright conversion film are desirable. Fractional Factorial Experimental Designs will be used ...

  10. Measurement of Fuel Spray Interactions

    SBC: COMPLERE INC            Topic: N/A

    Quantitative measurement of spray patterns is of fundamental importance in the development of efficient and practical aerospace propulsion and power systems. At present, there is considerable interest in obtaining measurements of fuel and air motions in both fuel droplet and solid particle combustors since the velocity of the fuel relative to the gas strongly influences the local oxygen supply, t ...
