  1. ORGANIX MATRIX COMPOSITE MATERIALS FOR CRYOGENIC SERVICE

    SBC: Advanced Material Systems            Topic: N/A

    APPLICATION OF ADVANCED ORGANIC COMPOSITE AT CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURE IS OF CURRENT INTEREST. HOWEVER, RELATIVELY LIMITED DEVELOPMENT WORK HAS BEEN DONE IN THIS AREA. OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE MECHANICAL AND CHEMICAL BEHAVIOR OF AN ORGANIC COMPOSITE MATERIAL AT CRYOGENIC ENVIRONMENT IS SOMEWHAT LACKING. IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND THE FUNDAMENTAL MECHANISMS THAT AFFECT THE PERFORMANCE OF AN ORGANIC COMPOSI ...

  2. WASTE HEAT EXCHANGER FOR DIESEL EXHAUST POWERED AIR CONDITIONING

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE WASTE HEAT EXCHANGER IS OFTEN THE LARGEST SINGLE COMPONENT IN DIESEL-EXHAUST POWERED AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEMS, AND ON ACCOUNT OF ITS HIGH MATERIAL CONTENT, IS OFTEN THE HEAVIEST AND MOST COSTLY AS WELL. THE NEED EXISTS FOR A HEAT EXCHANGER DESIGN AND FABRICATION TECHNIQUE WHICH IS COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT, RESISTS FOULING FROM EXHAUST GASES, IS EASILY CLEANED, USES INEXPENSIVE MATERIALS, AND IS ...

  4. PORTABLE OXYGEN-ENRICHER FOR INHALATION THERAPY

    SBC: A/g Technology Corp.            Topic: N/A

    HOME CARE INHALATION THERAPY REQUIRES A READY SUPPLY OF OXYGEN FOR PATIENT COMFORT. UNFORTUNATELY, AVAILABLE TECHNIQUES FOR SUPPLYING OXYGEN ALL SUFFER FROM MAJOR DRAW- BACKS. THE MOST NOTABLE COMMON PROBLEM IS EXCESSIVE WEIGHT WHICH LIMITS PATIENT MOBILITY BOTH INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE HOME. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A TRULY PORTABLE HOME CARE UN ...

  5. UTILIZATION OF 180-DEGREE PULSES IN HIGH-SPEED MRI

    SBC: Advanced Nmr Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A WHOLE-BODY MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI) SYSTEM CAPABLE OF ACQUIRING COMPLETE TOMOGRAPHIC PROTON IMAGES IN ABOUT 50 MILLISECONDS. IN PARTICULAR, THE POTENTIAL UTILIZATION OF 180-DEGREE RADIOFREQUENCY PULSES IS ADDRESSED AS A MEANS OF ELIMINATING ARTIFACTS THAT ARISE AS A RESULT OF MAGNETIC FIELD STRENGTHS MANDATED BY SIGNAL-TO-NOISE RATIO AN ...

  6. ON THE USE OF MULTIPROCESSING COMPUTERS FOR GLOBAL NUMERICAL WEATHER PREDICTION

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE THE DEVELOPMENT OF GLOBAL SPECTRAL NUMERICAL WEATHER PREDICTION (NWP) MODELS SPECIALLY DESIGNED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MULTIPROCESSING COMPUTERS. SEVERAL CANDIDATE ALGORITHMS WILL BE DESIGNED AND ANALYZED. THE BEST DESIGNS WILL BE CODED AND TESTED IN A SIMULATED MULTIPROCESSOR. THIS STUDY IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE OPERATIONAL NWP IS TIME CONSTRAINED AND LIMITED BY AVAILABLE COMPUTING POWER. FU ...

  7. A BORON ASSISTED COMBUSTION MODEL WITH SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SOLID BORON HAS LONG BEEN RECOGNIZED AS A POTENTIAL HIGH VOLUMETRIC DENSITY PROPELLANT FOR VOLUME LIMITED ROCKET AND AIR BREATHING PROPULSION SYSTEMS. HOWEVER, ACHIEVING THIS POTENTIAL HAS BEEN DIFFICULT DUE TO LOW COMBUSTION AND HEAT RELEASE EFFICIENCIES IN CONVENTIONALLY DESIGNED COMBUSTORS. A THREE PHASE MODEL OF BORON ASSISTED COMBUSTION IS POSTULATED AND THE ROLE THAT KINETIC SENSITIVITY ANAL ...

  8. HYPERVELOCITY OXYGEN SOURCE FOR THE STUDY OF ATOM-SURFACE INTERACTIONS

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SPACE-BASED FACILITIES FACE AN UNEXPECTEDLY HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT AT ORBITAL ALTITUDES DUE TO CHEMICAL INTERACTIONS WITH ATOMIC OXYGEN AT THE HIGH VELOCITIES OF ORBITING SPACECRAFT. DEGRADATION AND EROSION OF MATERIALS FACING INTO THE ATMOSPHERIC WIND POSE A THREAT TO THE EFFECTIVE LIFE AND UTILITY OF SATELLITES, SPACE STATION SYSTEMS, AND EXPECIALLY SPACE-BASED OPTICAL INSTRUMENTATION. WE PROPOSE T ...

  9. RUBY CRYSTAL CHLOROPHYLL FLUOROMETER FOR MEASUREMENTS OF PHOTOSYNTHESIS RATES

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DESIGN, CONSTRUCT AND TEST A LABORATORY VERSION OF A PASSIVE CHLOROPHYLL FLUORESCENCE SENSOR SUITABLE FOR MONITORING LARGE AREAS OF VEGETATION (> 1 M2). THE LINE DISCRIMINATOR METHOD WE PROPOSE EXPLOITS A COINCIDENCE BETWEEN AN ABSORPTION LINE OFATMOSPHERIC OXYGEN AND THE R1 LINE OF A COOLED RUBY CRYSTAL,BOTH OF WHICH LIE NEAR THE PEAK OF THE CHLOROPHYLL FLUORESC ...

  10. SYNTHETIC MODELING OF SHIPBORNE IRST CLOUD/SEA INFRARED RADIANCE SCENES

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL DEFINE A COMPUTER SIMULATION CAPABILITY THAT CAN SYNTHESIZE CLOUD CLUTTER AND SEA RADIANCE SCENES MEASURED BY SHIPBORNE IRST SENSORS. THE CAPABILITY WILL BE AN EXPANSION OF ARI'S EXISTING AERIE (AERODYNE INFRARED EARTH) IR BACKGROUND RADIANCE SIMULATION CODE, DEVELOPED TO SYNTHESIZE INFRARED SCENE RADIANCES MEASURED BY IMAGING SENSORS. DETAILS OF THE PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF THE CL ...
