  3. POWER PLANT AND STORAGE SYSTEM FOR AN ELECTROMAGNETIC AIRCRAFT LAUNCHER

    SBC: RCT Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NEED EXISTS TO DEVELOP A RELIABLE, COST EFFECTIVE POWER PLANT AND STORAGE SYSTEM FOR AN ELECTROMAGNETIC AIRCRAFT LAUNCHER. THIS SYSTEM CAN BEST BE DEVELOPED AROUND A HIGH ENERGY DENSITY FLYWHEEL COUPLED TO AN ADVANCED ELECTRIC GENERATOR. CONVENTIONAL POWER GENERATION CONCEPTS WOULD BE USED TO CHARGE THE FLYWHEEL BETWEEN LAUNCHES. THE CONTRACTOR WILL REVIEW THE CURRENT STATE-OF-THE-ART IN THE KEY ...

  4. EXPLORATORY DEVELOPMENT ON A NEW NITROGUANIDINE RECRYSTALLIZATION PROCESS

    SBC: Phasex Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE CURRENT PROCESS PRODUCES 100 MICRON NEEDLESHAPED PARTICLES OF NITROGUANIDINE WHICH ARE NOT SATISFACTORY FOR HIGH SOLIDS CONTENT FORMULATION; 400-600 MICRON SIZED SPHERICAL OR CUBICAL PARTICLES ARE DESIRED. EXPLORATORY DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW PROCESS USING SUPERCRITICALFLUIDS IS DESCRIBED. THE CONCEPT IS BASED UPON THE ABILITY OF A SUPERCRITICAL FLUID TO ACT AS A NUCLEATING MEDIUM OR TO DISSOLVE I ...

  5. MINIATURE LIDAR SYSTEM FOR STANDOFF DETECTION

    SBC: Laser Science, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A FORTY-POUND COMPACT LIDAR SYSTEM BASED ON A UNIQUE LSI LASER DESIGN. THE GOAL IS A SYSTEM HAVING FOUR FREQUENCY AGILE COAXIALLY ALIGNED CO2 LASER BEAMS WITH AN ENERGY OUTPUT OF AT LEAST 100 MJ, A PRF OF 100 HZ, AND TUNABILITY TO 66 LINES AT A TUNING RATE OF 100 HZ. THE SYSTEM SHOULD USE NINE INCH COLLECTING OPTICS, STATE-OF-THE-ART ...

  6. THE EFFECTS OF MICROGRAVITY ON TWO-PHASE FLOWS

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    TWO-PHASE FLOWS WILL BE EMPLOYED IN MANY OF THE POWER GENERATION AND THERMAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS CURRENTLY UNDER DEVELOPMENT OR PROPOSED FOR FUTURE APPLICATION IN SPACE. WHILE THE PHENOMENA OCCURRING IN TWO-PHASE FLOW HAVE BEEN STUDIED EXTENSIVELY FOR EARTH-BOUND SYSTEMS, RELATIVELY LITTLE IS KNOWN ABOUT THE EFFECTS OF MICROGRAVITY ON TWOPHASE FLOWS. AN ORGANIZED RESEARCH EFFORT IS NEEDED TO PERMIT ...

  9. ENERGY COMPENSATED SOLID STATE GAMMA SENSOR

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A KEY REQUIREMENT FOR THE SUCCESS OF THE NEW, TACTICAL RADIATION DOSIMETRY INSTRUMENTATION NOW BEING DEVELOPED BY THE ARMY IS TO HAVE AN ENERGY COMPENSATED, SOLID STATE GAMMA RAY SENSOR. ATTEMPS TO USE TRADITIONAL FILTERING TECHNIQUES TO ACHIEVE A FLAT ENERGY RESPONSE HAVE NOT BEEN SUCCESSFUL AND A NEW APPROACH IS REQUIRED. WE PROPOSE TO UTILIZE RECENTLY AVAILABLE, INEXPENSIVE DIGITAL MICROCHIPS T ...

  10. GROWTH OF GAAS CRYSTALS BY TEM FOR MICROWAVE DEVICE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Crystal Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    LARGE GAAS CRYSTALS WITH UNIFORM PROPERTIES AND LOW DEFECT DENSITIES ARE REQUIRED FOR MICROWAVE DEVICES FABRICATED FOR MILITARY SYSTEMS. THE VARIABLE QUALITY OF THE AVAILABLE GAAS, WAFER-TO-WAFER, INTRA WAFER, BOULE-TO-BOULE, AND INTRA BOULE IS UNSATISFACTORY FOR HIGHYIELD DEVICE PROCESSING. WHILE THE ELECTRONIC PROPERTIES OF LEC GAAS CRYSTALS ARE SATISFACTORY, THESE WAFERS SHOW VERY HIGH DEFECT D ...
