  1. ADAPTIVE SIGNAL PROCESSING ALGORITHM DEVELOPMENT FOR AIRBORNE EARLY EARNING RADAR

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY SERVICE CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The detection of low velocity targets by a high PRF surveillance radar such as the E-3 AWASCS is exacerbated by the two different clutter return phenomena: the J-Hook return and the Horseshoe return. The J-Hook return is observed primarily when the antenna points downward. In these geometries the clutter screen below the antenna may not adequately suppress the elevation sidelobe return, which ...

  2. SYNTHETIC APERTURE RADAR (SAR) ENHANCING TECHNIQUES

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY SERVICE CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    SAR is a critical technology for obtaining military and economic intelligence, terrain height and cover information, and a variety of other data. Because of its long coherent integration times and wide bandwidth, SAR is extremely vulnerable to RF interference, intentional noise jamming and coherent repeater jamming. The proposed research will identify the sources of interference that affect SARs ...

  3. MATERIAL AND PROCESS DEVELOPMENT OF NOVEL GRAPHITE/THERMOPLASTIC YARN AND RELATED FORMS

    SBC: Advanced Composite Products            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP BOTH TEXTILE FORMS AND ASSOCIATED PROCESSING METHODS FOR A NEW THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITE MATERIAL FORM KNOWN AS "HYBRID YARN". THIS MATERIAL, CONSISTING OF A FINE MIXTURE OF GRAPHITE AND THERMOPLASTIC FILAMENTS, ALLOWS FOR A FLEXIBLE AND CONFORMAL RAW MATERIAL FORM WHICH HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE BROADLY USED IN AIRCRAFT STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS. IT OFFERS DRAMA ...

  4. HIGH-EFFICIENCY THIN-FILM SILICON-ON-GAP SOLAR CELL FOR IMPROVED RADIATION RESISTANCE

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE ULTIMATE HIGH-EFFICIENCY CRYSTALLINE SILICON SOLAR CELL DESIGN CONSISTS OF A THIN FILM OF ELECTRICALLY-ACTIVE SILICON EPITAXIALLY GROWN ON AN OXIDE-OVERCOATED, INFRARED-TRANSPARENT GALLIUM PHOSPHIDE (GAP) SUBSTRATE. IN ADDITION TO HIGH CONVERSION EFFICIENCY AND INTRINSIC RADIATION RESISTANCE DUE TO THE THIN ACTIVE LAYERS, THIS NOVEL DESIGN HAS SEVERAL UNIQUE PERFORMANCE ENHANCING FEATURES. THE ...

  5. LEAK DETECTION BY ACOUSTIC EMISSION MONITORING

    SBC: Msb Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PHASE I WILL PROVE THE FEASIBILITY OF RELIABLE, ROBUST DETECTION OF GAS OR LIQUID LEAKS IN UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS AND PIPELINES, UTILIZING ACOUSTIC EMISSION MONITORING (AEM) TECHNIQUES, SUCH AS PRODUCT ARRAY PROCESSING AND FOURIER SPECTRUM PROCESSING. THE REQUIRED DETECTION THRESHOLD OF THE AEM PROCESSOR, FOR A GIVEN PROBABILITY OF DETECTION AND FALSE ALARM RATE, AND THE ACCELEROMETER SENSITIVI ...

  6. IMPROVED COMBUSTION TOXICOLOGY OF NEW PF-11 CHEMICALS

    SBC: Northeast Research Institute I            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS NO WIDELY ACCEPTED PROTOCOL FOR THE ASSESSMENT OF COMBUSTION PRODUCTS TOXICITY. MOST PROCEDURES EMPLOYED FOR THIS PURPOSE UTILIZE ENDPOINTS THAT ASSESS TIME-TO-INCAPACITATION AND LETHALITY. SUCH PROTOCOLS ARE BASED ON SAMPLE THERMAL DECOMPOSITION TECHNIQUES WHICH OFTEN DO NOT REFLECT CONDITIONS TO WHICH PF-11 CHEMICALS AND MATERIALSWILL BE EXPOSED. THE RESULTS OBTAINED USING SUCH PROTOCOL ...

  7. DESIGN METHODS FOR TWO-PHASE FLOW AND HEAT TRANSFER IN MICROGRAVITY

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1987 Department of DefenseAir Force
  8. NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF MAGNETIC LEC GROWTH OF SEMI-INSULATING GAAS

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    DISLOCATIONS IN SEMI-INSULATING GALLIUM ARSENIDE (GAAS) CRYSTALS ARE KNOWN TO EXERT A CONSIDERABLE INFLUENCE ON THE PERFORMANCE OF ELECTRONIC DEVICES. THE CRYSTAL QUALITY IN TURN DEPENDS ON THE MELTCRYSTAL INTERFACE CHARACTERISTICS, E.G., TEMPERATURE FLUCTUATION DURING GROWTH. FOR A LONG TIME IT HAS BEEN KNOWN THAT AN EXTERNALLY APPLIED MAGNETIC FIELD CAN MODIFY THE FLUID DYNAMICS OF A CONDUCTING ...

  9. HOT-BLOCK ANEMOMETRY

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT OF A MAJOR INNOVATION IN FLOW MEASURMENT, CALLED HOT-BLOCK ANEMOMETRY, IS PROPOSED FOR MEASURING FLUID VELOCITY. MEASUREMENT OF VELOCITY CHARACTERISTICS IN COMPLEX AND UNSTEADY FLOWS IS A PROBLEM OF GREAT PRACTICAL IMPORTANCE. HOT-BLOCK ANEMOMETRY IS PROPOSED TO EXTEND CURRENT CAPABILITY AND TO PROVIDE INSTANTANEOUS VALES OF FLOW SPEED AND DIRECTION IN THE COMPLETE RANGE F ...
