  1. Plastic Optics for Low Cost Optical Computer Motherboards.

    SBC: BOSTON OPTICAL FIBER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Evolving military applications require higher computing performance which is Nrealized by increasing the number of processors or the processor clock speed. F Trends toward sharing resources in multi-processor systems and using Mdistributed processing systems for reliability and speed place more emphasis @on availability of a wide bandwidth network to interconnect the Nmicroprocessors. The add ...

  2. Microscopic Investigation of Rocket Propellant Processing Parameters on Cure Shrinking

    SBC: Bruker Analytical Systems,            Topic: N/A

    We have developed a unique tool based on Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Imaging methods, for the study of the microscopic structure of polymer matrices. We believe that these methods are uniquely suited to the study of cure shrinkage and aging in rocket motor propellants, and we propose to work with DOD collaborators to demonstrate this capability and to employ our imaging methods in laborat ...

  3. Improved Mid-Frequency Statistical Energy Analysis Modeling Procedures


    Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA)is currently used to predict high-frequency airborne and structureborne noise and vibration for ships, aircraft, aerospace systems, and automobiles, while finite element analysis (FEA) is used for low-frequencies. A mid-frequency region exists where neither technique gives accurate predictions. The study being proposed will develop modeling procedures that a ...

  4. New Multi-Functional Vapor Phase Corrosion Inhibitors

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    A new family of surface-active organic compounds is proposed for formulating multi-purpose vapor phase corrosion inhibitors (VCI's). The proposed research explores the feasibility of applying state-of-the-art surface science with the concepts of molecular simulation and molecular self assembly to produce a new class of corrosion inhibitors. The ultimate objective is to develop a family of VCI's ...

  6. Covert Underwater Communications

    SBC: Delphi Communication Systems            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to develop adaptive channel characterization algorithms for very low frequency (VLF) covert acoustic communications between submarines and other platforms. Technical issues that are addressed are channel propagation conditions in the VLF band and channel characterization; the impact of submarine motion on the signals transmitted in this band; and determination of o ...

  8. Conductive Polymer Coated Electrodes for Rapid Electrochromic Switching

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The polymer film located between the fingers of a metal grid is a critical element in developing an operational electrochromic switch on a poly(tetrafluoroethylene) substrate. The polymer must be thin and highly conductive in one state to give the switch both a rapid response and a high contrast ratio. In addition, overlap of the polymer onto the top of the grids increases the charge require ...

  9. Cockpit and Helmet Mounted Displays Based on Interferometric

    SBC: Etalon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Etalon has recently demonstrated a fundamentally new display technology based on Microelectromechanical (MEM) Structures which affords high performance in harsh environments utilizing low cost, mature process technology. Relying on interference, these interferometric modulators (IMods) are simple membrane structures whose colors change when deformed electrostatically. IMods have already d ...

  10. Nanolaminated Ti/TiN Fretting and Wear Resistant Coating

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

    Root attachment areas of turbine blades and vanes experience in which oxide debris is generally formed under the small contact area and cannot escape. This leads to localized wear and defect formation. Generally, soft metal (Cu, Al) are used to allow the small relative motion to be taken up within the coating. Plasma sprayed Cu-Ni-In and Ni-graphite coatings are used currently in the mating a ...
