  1. Reflex Triode

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "Reflex triode bremsstrahlung sources potentially provide warm X-ray sources (20 keV to 500 keV), capable of generating high doses (~10 cal/g gold) over exposure areas of ~20 cm2. This needed capability allows experimental verification of warm X-ray inducedthermomechanical response, SGEMP, and box IEMP models for achieving component and system certification to hostile environments.In a reflex trio ...

  2. Digital Image Generator for Real-Time Display of Nuclear Backgrounds for Optical/Infrared Sensors

    SBC: VISIDYNE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The team of Visidyne, Inc. and Mission Research Corporation proposes to develop a high-fidelity, real-time Nuclear Optical Dynamic Digital Image Generator (NODDIG) to support the development and testing of algorithms for the mitigation of optical clutterin nuclear environments. The NODDIG concept is a software/hardware digital scene generator. It will complement and support infrared sensors under ...

  3. A NOVEL FIELD PROGRAMMABLE GATE ARRAY FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Mission Research Corporation proposes the development of a unique FPGA (field programmable gate array) for applications in space and other military and civilian environments requiring the versatility of reconfigurability with retention of the configuration in an unpowered state. The FPGA will be capable of being configured once and retaining that configuration for a minimum of 10 years even with ...

  4. An Improved Plasma Opening Switch for DECADE

    SBC: NumerEx            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT ATTEMPTS TO USE THE PLASMA OPENING SWITCH (POS) FOR DECADE HAVE NOT YET BEEN ENTIRELY SUCCESSFUL DUE TO THE APPARENT INABILITY OF THE SWITCH TO OPEN EFFICIENTLY TO A HIGH-IMPEDENCE LOAD. RESEARCH DIRECTED TOWARD IMPROVING THE PERFORMANCE OF THE POS IN THE LONG-CONDUCTION TIME REGIME HAS BEEN FRUSTRATED BY THE INABILITY OF COMPUTATIONAL TOOLS TO OPERATE IN THE PARAMETER REGIMES OF INTEREST ...

  5. Encapsulating Aqueous Diets for Beneficial Insects Using Synthetic Polymers

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This proposal seeks to develop a method for the encapsulation of a liquid artificial culture medium that has been proven suitable for rearing a variety of beneficial insects. There are no existing methods available for the production of soft-shelled, aqueous-filled, 1 cm diameter capsules which could be used to encapsulate water-based artificial diets. All current industrial encapsulation techno ...

  6. Biological Control of Thrips palmi: An Emerging National Imperative

    SBC: Glades Crop Care, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Pest management professionals in Florida are facing a severe new threat, Thrips palmi Karny, commonly known as the melon thrips. Because of its ability to defoliate plants and markedly reduce yields, broad host range, and the difficulty of chemical control, biological control systems must be found. T. palmi has continued to spread steadily after it was first discovered in the continental U.S. in ...

  7. Low Cost Mass Production Technology for Mite Predators of Spider Mites and Thrips

    SBC: Predation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Phytoseiid mites are efficient predators which are used to control spider mites and other pests. Annual world sales of these mites total approximately $8-10 million. Current production methods for the most commonly used phytoseiid, Phytoseiulus persimilis, use a three component system of plant, pest and predator. These production methods are very labor intensive and require large amounts of spa ...

  8. Low Cost Instrument for Automatic Determination of Cloud Cover

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a continuing need for reliable cloud observations to drive climatic UV-B prediction models. Traditionally, observations such as cloud cover are made by human observers, and thus often suffer from uncertainties due to the subjectivity of the observer. Cloud cover data is especially important in UV-B hazard prediction, as well as storm prediction. It is generally accepted that UV-B doses ...

  9. Radiation Hardened Silicon-on-Insulator Substrates for Advanced Electronics

    SBC: IBIS TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    SIMOX (Separation by Implanted Oxygen) technology achieves total dielectric isolation of active device regions from the substrate and reduces the collection path for ionized charges via the built-in buried oxide which restricts charge movement. Advances in SIMOX technology include radiation hardened memories and gate arrays for space applications, ULSI DRAMs for low voltage operation, thin film SO ...

  10. PHOSPHORUS REMOVAL IN AGRICULTURAL RUNOFF USING AN INTEGRATED WETLAND/CHEMICAL SYSTEM

    SBC: Db Environmental Laboratory In            Topic: N/A

    A PROPOSED INTEGRATED WETLAND-CHEMICAL TREATMENT SYSTEM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE AN EFFECTIVE, ECONOMICAL, AND ENVIRONMENTALLY ACCEPTABLE TECHNIQUE FOR REMOVING PHOSPHORUS FROM AGRICULTURAL WASTEWATERS. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM CONSISTS OF A SUBMERSED MACROPHYTE POND (SMP) FOR SUSPENDED SOLIDS, DISSOLVED ORGANIC CARBON AND P REMOVAL, AS WELL AS ELEVATION OF WATER COLUMN PH LEVELS. EFFLUENT FROM THE SMP ...
