  1. Analysis and Improvement of Trivalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The trend toward replacement of highly toxic chemicals with less hazardous alternatives has created the demand for replacement of chromate conversion coatings for corrosion protection of aluminum alloys. Aluminum alloys are the predominate structural material used in aircraft because of their high strength-to-weight ratios, affordability and processability. Aluminum is subject to catastrophic fail ...

  2. Comprehensible Descriptions for Fast Processing of Image Data

    SBC: DATAMAT SYSTEMS RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort will apply advanced methods of hybrid learning to problems of detection and identification of sensory events (e.g., boost phase evens). Our approach aims at building a vision system capable of hybrid learning, in which symbolic (rule-based) and subsymbolic (neural network) strategies are integrated to achieve high efficiency and accuracy both in learning human comprehensible se ...

  3. Development of a Compact Electron Beam Accelerator

    SBC: MICROWAVE TECHNOLGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Microwave Technologies Incorporated is proposing the development of a very compact radio-frequency (rf) electron beam accelerator which appears to be well-suited for BMDO's directed energy applications. This novel concept employs a single short rf cavity operating in circular polarization to accelerate a low-energy ma ~netized pencil beam to energies that range from 2 to 10 MeV. The proposed accel ...

  4. Digital Intelligence Situation Mapboard for Enhanced Situation Awareness

    SBC: Trident Systems Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Current battlefield situation displays either lack resolution ir restrict the user's perception to a small segment of the battlefield. Additionally, the plotting of data on these displays is extremely manpower-intensive, consuming valuable personnel resources that could be applied to situation analysis and other important tasks. Trident proposes to design and produce an innovative situation awar ...

  5. Inorganic Confromal Coatings for SIC Packaging

    SBC: T P L, INC            Topic: N/A

    Glass is an attractive material for microelectronic packaging because it is hermetically sealing, has a low coefficient of thermal expansion, and is compatible with d.c. circuits. Unfortunately, the working temperature of glass is too high for this application. Low-temperature processing of a sol-gel derived, aluminosilicate material for hermetic seals is proposed for electronic packaging. This ...

  6. SMART SENSORS USING OPTICAL FIBER INTERCONNECTS AND DISTRIBUTED MEMS

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR program would develop practical methods for the interconnection, addressing and control of large numbers of distributed MEMS-based sensing and actuation elements using optical fiber multiplexing techniques. Such interconnected sensor/actuator arrays have immediate and long-term applications in the instrumentation and control of adaptive aircraft, spacecraft and hydrocraft structures, fl ...

  7. High Velocity Pulsed Plasma Thermal Spray

    SBC: UTRON, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The quality and durability of coatings produced by virtually all thermal spray techniques could be improved by, among other things, increasing the velocity with which coatings particles impact the coated surface and by better control of the chemical and thermal environment seen by the particles during flight. A new and innovative approach to thermal spraying is proposed that can increase coating p ...

  8. Ultra-high Dielectric Constant Dielectric Materials

    SBC: T P L, INC            Topic: N/A

    NON-NUCLEAR APPROACHES ARE SOUGHT FOR HIGH ENERGY DENSITIES FOR SPACE POWER SYSTEMS. ONE CRITICAL COMPONENT TO ACHIEVE IMPROVED PERFORMANCE IS CAPACITOR STORES. THESE ARE DEPENDENT UPON ADVANCES IN LOW LOSS, HIGH ENERGY/HIGH POWER DENSITY STORAGE MATERIALS. A UNIQUE INORGANIC COMPOSITE IS PROPOSED FOR INVESTIGATION AS A HIGH ENERGY DENSITY STORAGE MATERIAL. AN APPROACH IS FORMULATED BASED ON SOL-G ...

  9. Mission Flexible, Low Cost, Suborbital Launch Vehicle

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    LACK OF RELIABLE, FLEXIBLE, LOW COST TRANSPORTATION FOR SMALL PAYLOADS IS A BOTTLENECK IN THE DEVELOPMENT AND DEPLOYMENT OF SPACE BASED SYSTEMS. PACASTRO'S FAMILY OF ROCKET VEHICLES, EMPLOYING A CORE PRESSURE-FED, LIQUID PROPULSION UNIT AND ELECTRONICS AND SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPED IN SMALL LOW COST SPACECRAFT PROGRAMS, WILL CUT IN HALF THE PRICE OF LAUNCHING SMALL SUBORBITAL AND ORBITAL PAYLO ...
