  1. 3-D STACKED OPTICAL MEMORY BASED ON POLARIZATION HOLOGRAPHY

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL, ULTRA-DENSE MEMORY SYSTEM USING THREE-DIMENSIONAL OPTICAL HOLOGRAPHIC STORAGE WILL BE DEVELOPED BASED ON NEW POLARIZATION-SENSITIVE POLYMER MATERIAL AND POLARIZATION HOLOGRAPHIC TECHNOLOGY. THIS APPROACH REPRESENTS THE FIRST PRACTICAL ATTEMPT TO RECORD AND RETRIEVE INFORMATION HOLOGRAPHICALLY IN THREE DIMENSIONS. ALTHOUGH THREE-DIMENSIONAL IN NATURE, THE CLASSICAL, HOLOGRAPHIC, ANGULAR-MU ...

  2. LARGE APERTURE HOLOGRAPHIC OPTICAL ELEMENTS FOR SCANNING TELESCOPES

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL, LARGE-APERTURE, HOLOGRAPHIC OPTICAL ELEMENT (HOE) FOR SCANNING TELESCOPES WILL BE DEVELOPED BASED ON VOLUME BRAGG HOLOGRAPHIC TECHNOLOGY. THE NOVELTY LIES IN THE FABRICATION OF A MULTIPLE-NARROW-BANDWIDTH HOE THAT RESPONDSTO WAVELENGTHS OF 532 NM, 732 NM, 760 NM, 770 NM, 1.64 MUM AND 10.6 MUM IN A THIN COATING THAT DOES NOT REQUIRE HEAVY OPTICS AND POLISHING. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT ...

  3. MIXED HAFNIUM-TANTALUM CARBIDE ROCKET THRUSTER DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: REFRACTORY COMPOSITES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    RECENT AIR FORCE-FUNDED, ARC-JET MATERIALS TESTING HAS DEMONSTRATED THAT A MIXED HFC-TAC COMPOSITE CERAMIC MATERIAL EXHIBITS THE LOWEST MASS LOSS OF ANY MATERIAL TESTED, INCLUDING HAFNIUM CARBIDE AND HAFNIUM DIBORIDE CERAMIC COMPOSITES. A HYDROGEN-OXYGEN PROPELLANT ROCKET THRUSTER, BASED ON THE MIXED HAFNIUM-TANTALUM-CARBIDE CERAMIC COMPOSITE, IS EXPECTED TO DEMONSTRATE SUPERIOR HIGH-TEMPERATURE D ...

  4. USE OF HONEYCOMB TECHNOLOGY TO SAVE WEIGHT IN COMPOSITE FLEXIBLE BLANKET INSULATION

    SBC: S. D. MILLER AND ASSOCIATES P.L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  5. KA-BAND, HIGH EFFICIENCY POWER MMIC

    SBC: Schellenberg Assoc            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  6. LANGUAGE ENGINEERING IN SPEECH RECOGNITION

    SBC: Speech Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    SPEECH RECOGNITION TECHNOLOGY CAN BE USED FOR INTERACTING WITH A COMPUTER BY SPEAKING TO IT. CONTINUOUS SPEECH AND LARGE VOCABULARIES CREATE THE NEED FOR A LANGUAGE MODEL TO RESOLVE WORDS AND PHRASES THAT SOUND ALIKE. IN SOME APPLICATIONS, IT IS NECESSARY TO "ENGINEER" A LANGUAGE TO DEAL WITH THE COMPUTER, A LANGUAGE THAT IS A PART OF ENGLISHBUT IS NOT BASED ON AN IMPRACTICAL ASSUMPTION THAT THE S ...

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  7. REAL TIME MONITORING OF MATERIAL DEGRADATION OF FIBER COMPOSITES

    SBC: Structural Integrity Associate            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. BUFFER LAYERS ON LOW LOSS SUBSTRATES FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILMS

    SBC: SUPERCONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT CAPITALIZES ON THREE EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES BY INTEGRATING A FLEXIBLE MEMBRANE (AS A HIGHLY EFFICIENT TRANSDUCER) IMPRESSIVE SCANNING AND IMAGING ALGORITHMS FOUND IN MEDICINE, AND LOW-COST PC-BASED COMPUTERS WITH A FAST, DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING (DSP) BOARD. THE EVENTUAL MACHINE WILL BE CAPABLE OF SUPPORTING RAPID TESTING OF FERROUS AND NON-FERROUS MATERIALS WHILE ON THE ASSEMBLY LINE ...

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. IDEAL FLYING QUALITIES FOR AERO-SPACE CRAFT

    SBC: Systems Control Technology,            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS CURRENTLY CONSIDERABLE INTEREST, BOTH IN THE U. S. AND ABROAD, IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF AIRCRAFT CAPABLE OF HYPERSONIC FLIGHT. HOWEVER, THERE IS VERY LITTLE GUIDANCE AVAILABLE ON THE FLYING QUALITIES CHARACTERISTICS THAT ARE DESIRABLE FOR THIS CLASS OF VEHICLES. THIS PROJECT WILL ATTEMPT TO DETERMINE THE MOST IDEAL SET OF FLYING QUALITIES CHARACTERISTICS BY USING A KEY RESULT OF INTEGRATED C ...

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. IMPROVED FIBER-OPTIC TEMPERATURE SENSORS FOR PROPULSION SYSTEMS

    SBC: Tacan Corp            Topic: N/A

    METHODS WILL BE INVESTIGATED TO IMPROVE ON THE UPPER TEMPERATURE LIMIT, RESPONSE, AND DURABILITY OF FIBER-OPTIC SENSORS FOR HIGH TEMPERATURES. PRESENT HIGH-TEMPERATURE, FIBER-OPTIC SENSORS (BOTH COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE PRODUCTS AND LABORATORY PROTOTYPES) USE SAPPHIRE RODS, TUBES, OR FIBERS THAT BECOME SIGNIFICANTLY LESS RESISTANT TO THERMAL SHOCK AND PHYSICAL STRESSES AT THE UPPER END OF THEIR USEF ...
