  1. NOVEL NON-AQUEOUS ELECTROLYTES FOR A HIGH RATE PRIMARY MAGNESIUM BATTERY

    SBC: COVALENT ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE NAVY CURRENTLY USES AQUEOUS ELECTROLYTE-BASED MG PRIMARY BATTERIES IN A VARIETY OF WEAPONS SYSTEMS. OWING TO PARASITIC MG/H(2)O CORROSION REACTIONS, DELIVERABLE VOLTAGES AND ENERGY DENSITIES ARE SUBSTANTIALLY LESS THAN THEORETICAL. MOREOVER, VOLTAGE DELAYS OFTEN COMPROMISE PERFORMANCE AND THEEBY APPLICABILITY. THUS THERE IS A NEED FOR NEW NON-AQUEOUS ELECTROLYTES COMPATIBLE WITH MG BATTERY CHE ...

  2. PROBABILISTIC RADAR INVERSE SCATTERING

    SBC: Devaney A J Assocs            Topic: N/A

    THE PROBLEM OF ESTIMATING RADAR TARGET PARAMETERS SUCH AS SHAPE, SIZE AND MATERIAL PROPERTIES FROM MONOSTATIC SCATTERING MEASUREMENTS IS FORMULATED WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF STATISTICAL ESTIMATION THEORY AND INVERSE SCATTERING. A BAYESIAN APPROACH TO THIS PROBLEM IS PROPOSED WHERE THE LIKLIHOOD RATIOS BETWEEN MULTIPLE TARGET HYPOTHESES ARE USED TO MAKE AN OPTIMUM TARGET IDENTIFICATION FROM SPARSE SCAT ...

  3. SACRIFICIAL ELECTRODES

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

    ELECTROMAGNETIC THRUSTERS REPRESENT A PROMISING MEANS FOR THE NOISELESS PROPULSION OF SUBMERSIBLE. THE POWER AND EFFICIENCY OF ELECTROMAGNETIC THRUSTERS IS DETERMINED BY THE CONDUCTIVITY OF THE FLUID AND BY THE STRENGTH OF THE MAGNETIC FIELD. THE LOW CONDUCTIVITY OF SEAWATER IS THE MAIN LIMITATION. WE PROPOSE, THEREFORE, TO ENHANCE THE CONDUCTIVITY OF SEAWATER BY ELECTROCHEMICAL GENERATION OF A ST ...

  4. STABLE SILVER OXIDE (AGO) BATTERY ELECTRODE

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

    ELECTROCHEMICALLY PREPARED (EP) SILVER OXIDE HAS BEEN USED IN PRIMARY RESERVE ZN-SILVER OXIDE BATTERIES BECAUSE OF IT HIGH RATE DISCHARGE CAPABILITY. HOWEVER, THE EP SILVER OXIDE IS THERMALLY UNSTABLE UNDER STORAGE THUS LIMITING THE SHELF LIFE OF THE ZN-AGO BATTERIES AND FORCING MANUFACTURERS TO PERIODICALLY REPLACE THOSE BATTERIES AT GREAT EXPENSE. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A NEW ANODIZATION OF SILVE ...

  6. AMPLIFYING FERROMAGNETIC ECHOING DEVICES

    SBC: ElectroMagnetic Applications, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AMPLIFYING FERROMAGNETIC DEVICE (AFED) OPERATING AT 800-900 MHZ IS NEEDED FOR ELECTRONIC APPLICATIONS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I IS TO PROVIDE A PRACTICAL DESIGN FOR AN AFED AND RELIABLY PREDICT ITS PERFORMANCE. IN ADDITION, AN ALTERNATIVE DESIGN OF AN AFED IS PROPOSED FOR MMIC APPLICATIONS AT 800 MHZ OR HIGHER FREQUENCIES.

  7. MINIATURIZED SOLID-STATE COMPUTER SCREEN DISPLAY SYSTEM WITH INTERACTIVE VOICE CONTROL

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

    CURRENTLY, ALMOST ALL COMPUTER SYSTEMS REQUIRE BULKY HUMAN INTERFACE DEVICES (LARGE SCREENS AND KEYBOARDS). IN CERTAIN SPACED-RESTRICTED APPLICATIONS SUCH AS AIRCRAFT AND SUBMARINES, THE BENEFITS OF ADVANCED COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY ARE FOREGONE BECAUSE OF COMPUTER WEIGHT AND SPACE REQUIREMENTS AS WELL AS THE LACK OF MOBILITY FOR THE OPERATOR. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGHL ...

  8. NON-ASBESTOS REPLACEMENT MATERIALS FOR NAVAL AIRCRAFT

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

    A TWO-PHASE PROGRAM IS PROPOSED IN SUPPORT OF NAVAIRS MISSION TO ELIMINATE ASBESTOS-CONTAINING MATERIALS FROM ITS AIRCRAFT ENGINES. IN PHASE I, A THOROUGH SURVEY WILL BE MADE OF ALL COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE, NON-ASBESTOS REPLACEMENT MATERIALS. THE SURVEY INCLUDES REVIEW OF THE PATENT AND RESEARCH LITERATURE, AND IN-DEPTH DISCUSSIONS WITH DOD PERSONNEL, ENGINE AND AIRFRAME COMPONENT MANUFACTURERS, GA ...

  9. INTEGRAL CIRCUIT PANEL/FRAME/HEAT SINK

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

    COOLING OF ELECTRONICS IS A CRITICAL FACTOR IN THE DESIGN OF NAVAL AVIONICS, ESPECIALLY IN INTEGRATED RACK ELECTRONICS. PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THERMAL MISMATCH BETWEEN FRAME (USUALLY ALUMINUM) AND BOARD (OFTEN CERAMIC) REQUIRE THE USE OF THICK DHESIVE BONDS WHICH INTRODUCES HIGH THERMAL RESISTANCE IN THE PATH OF THE HEAT FLOW. FOSTER-MILLER PROPOSES A NOVEL APPROACH TO CREATING A HIGH THERMAL DI ...

  10. DIVER-INSTALLED RECOILLESS PROPELLANT EMBEDDED ANCHOR (RPEA)

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

    A PROPELLANT-ACTUATED ANCHOR USABLE AT ANY UNDERWATER DEPTH OR IN THE OPEN AIR, THAT IS ALSO LIGHT AND COMPACT ENOUGH FOR DEPLOYMENT BY DIVERS, IS DESIRED. WHERES EXISTING UNDERWATER EMBEDMENT GUNS USE REACTION VESSELS TO RESIST RECOIL FORCES UNDERWATER, THESE GUNS WOULD RECOIL HIGH INTO THE AIR IF FIRED ON LAND. A RECOILLESS GUN HAS BEEN SUGGESTED IN THE RFP. UNFORTUNATELY, THESE EXPEL GREAT VOLU ...
