  1. High Emissivity Arcjet Anode

    SBC: Energy Science Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Improved cooling of the anode can increase the efficiency and lifetime of arcjet thrusters. Smooth tungsten anodes have low emissivity ~0.3 that severely limits radiative cooling heat transfer can be increased 300% by improvements in emissivity, and thereby significantly increase arcjet power. Prior attempts to increase tungsten emissivity have problems: ceramic coatings tend to flake off under hi ...

  4. ANAEROBIC DEGRADATION OF ORDNANCE CHEMICAL WASTES

    SBC: Environmental            Topic: N/A

    Complete, efficient, and cost-effective disposal of the secondardy explosives and propellants has been an ongoing problem for federal and private manufactures of ordnance containing these chemicals. The need for new disposal technology has been recently heightened by the current emphasis on waste minimization in both the military and private sectors, and by the discovery of these chemicals in grou ...

  6. TACC IMBEDDED TRAINING (ESD)

    SBC: FRONTIER TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: N/A

    EFFECTIVE EMPLOYMENT OF AIR POWER REQUIRES BOTH PLANNING AND SKILLFUL MANAGEMENT OF CURRENT (ONGOING) OPERATIONS. OPERATIONAL-ECHELON TACTICAL AIR COMMANDERS AND THEIR STAFFS AT THE TACTICAL AIR CONTROL CENTERS (TACCS) REQUIRE SIMPLE, TOP-LEVEL WARGAMING TOOLS FOR DELIBERATE PLANNING AND CONTINGENCY PLANNING; FOR DECISION AIDING DURING THE EXECUTION OF AN AIR CAMPAIGN; AND FOR GENERATING AIR DIREC ...

  7. Active Expendable Electronic Counter Countermeasure (ECCM)

    SBC: FRONTIER TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed Phase I research program will define and evaluate techniques and tactics intended to counter active expendable electronic countermeasures (ECM) threats to air-launched radar-guided weapon systems. Performance will be measured in terms of the missile seeker's ability to discriminate between the expendable and the true target. These performance evaluations, together with qualitative ass ...

  8. RE-USABLE INSTRUCTIONAL STRATEGY SEGMENT TEMPLATES FOR HIGHLY-EFFICIENT COMPUTER BASED TRAINING DEVELOPMENT AND DELIVERY

    SBC: GLOBAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    THE AIR FORCE HAS BEEN USING COMPUTER-BASED TRAINING FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS, YET IT STILL CONFRONTS MANY OF THE SAME BASIC PROBLEMS: SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS ARE USUALLY NOT INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGNERS, INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGNERS ARE USUALLY NOT PROGRAMMERS, CBT COURSEWARE IS EXPENSIVE TO DEVELOP (TYPICALLY 400 HOURS PER HOUR OF DELIVERABLE TRAINING), AND COURSEWARE DESIGN IS RARELY SUPPORTED BY VALIDATED ...

  9. MULTIFUSION: A NEW APPROACH TO MOBILE TARGET IDENTIFICATION

    SBC: Hnc, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROBLEM OF RELIABLY DETECTING AND CORRECTLY CLASSIFYING MOBILE TARGETS IS AN UNSOLVED PROBLEM OF GREAT MILITARY SIGNIFICANCE. IN THIS PROJECT, HNC WILL APPLY ITS NEW MULTIFUSION APPROACH TO MULTIPLE SENSOR FUSION AND A PRIORI KNOWLEDGE EXPLOITATION TO THE PROBLEM OF MOBILE TARGET DETECTION. THE MULTIFUSION APPROACH UTILIZES NEURAL NETWORKS TO CARRY OUT PRE-CLASSIFICATION FEATURE EXTRACTION AND ...

  10. Electromagnetic Shielding for Composite Shelters

    SBC: Horine Engineers, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The weakest link in the shielding protection for a current shelter is at the door seam. For the proposed shelter, the door seam will be shielded with a "Pressure Stabilized Gasket System" that was designed and tested by HEI under a previous Army (HDL) SBIR contract. This gasket system was tested with a contact pressure of 35 psi (corresponding to a SE of over 60 dB to H field at 150 kHz). This sub ...
