  1. Electromagnetic Coupling to Satellite Cavities


    The proposed research combines an innovative eigenvector method with other electromagnetic techniques to produce a hybrid approach towards solving the EM coupling to satellite cavity problem. The physical structure is divided into an exterior region and one or more interior regions. The exterior region is modeled with method of moments (MOM) and or hybrids of MOM with the uniform theory of diffr ...

  2. An Integrated Module with a 1.5 um Waveguide Laser and a Multi-Gigahertz Modulator in LiNb03

    SBC: Advanced Photonics            Topic: N/A

    The major hindrance in the way of integration of a laser source and an external modulator in ferroelectrics has for long been the lack of efficient waveguide lasers and amplifers suitable for integration in these materials. However, with the recent resurgence of interest in rare-earth doped, waveguide lasers in LiNbO3 and in view of the promising results already achieved, the on-chip integration ...

  3. Radiation Effects Modeling for High Yield, Reliable Integrated Circuits

    SBC: AET, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Defense Special Weapons Agency (DSWA) has identified a need to improve the radiation hardness of advanced integrated circuit technologies. To be practical, this must be achieved in a cost effective way. This proposal by AET, Inc. directly addresses these concerns. Specifi-cally, this proposal provides a means to achieve significant advance in radiation hardness of large scale integrated cir ...

  4. A Robust, High-Efficiency Turboexpander for Long-Life Cryocoolers

    SBC: AFAB Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cryogenic cooling objectives for space applications require reduced size, weight, and input power; longer life and increased reliability; and increased net cooling load. The Reverse-Brayton expander cycle has the potential to meet all these objectives. Previous efforts to implement this cycle for long-life cryocoolers utilized "room temperature" tilting pad bearings. The warm bearings provided ...

  5. Nuclear Weapons Effects Phenomenology

    SBC: Applied Physics Technologies            Topic: N/A

    The nuclear weapons community has traditionally focused on the next generation or level of weapon capability complimented by gathering and analysis of actual test data. Now, with the cessation of actual weapons testing, there is an increased need to use the actual test data in modeling techniques to better understand the phenomenology and potential effects of nuclear weapons. The first phase of ...

  6. Interface-Driven Multidisciplinary Design of Large-Scale Aircraft Structures

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

    Under the proposed research an Interface-Driven Design Manager (IDM) for CAD packages will be developed to greatly reduce the design cycle time for aircraft structures. The IDM represents a first attempt to fully integrate powerful new interface element and design management technologies into the CAD environment. These emerging technologiies have the potential for making multidisciplinary design ...

  7. Armament Research

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

    Recent efforts in the target vulnerability community (fixed ground targets, mobile ground targets, and aircraft) have focused on enhancing the blast and fragmentation modeling from weapon detonations. This includes modeling propagation of the detonation effects from the weapon through their interaction with the target geometry, to the development of loads on and response of the target structure. ...

  8. Laser Turbulence Measurements in the LB/TS

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

    Turbulence of gas flows by its very nature is one of the most difficult things to model and measure. We propose to develop a new way of measuring the turbulence and to compare these measurements to predictions using the k-epsilon model. Typical measurements, in the past, use smoke, Schlierin or shadow graph techniques to visually infer turbulence characteristics. These features are either motio ...

  9. Slipper Wear/Gouging Phenomena

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

    The objective of this work is to develop analytical techniques to characterize wear and gouging phenomena of slippers at speeds up to hypersonic and demonstrate means to evaluate or reduce slipper wear/gouging. Specifically, we will develop analytical techniques that can be used to predict slipper wear patterns and gouging phenomena throughout the sled velocity regime to Mach 10. This will inclu ...

  10. Multiple Sensor Inertial Measurement Unit

    SBC: System Dynamics International Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    The U.S. Air Force has identified a need to develop innovative inertial sensor configurations and algorithms that utilize multiple low-cost, low-performance sensors to produce an inexpensive inertial measurement unit (IMU) with relatively high performance. A multiple-sensor IMU uses several low-performance sensors per axis and blends their outputs to attain an accuracy comparable to a higher-perf ...
