  1. Compact High-Speed Video Camera Using MCMs

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

    Traditionally, the recording of high speed phenomena has required the use of film cameras; though providing very fast frame rates and high resolution, film is bulky, heavy, expensive, and requires considerable processing delay before the results from an event can be viewed. In recent years, advances in solid-state imager design have made high-speed video a viable alternative to film. High speed vi ...

  2. Low-Energy Architectural, Circuit, and Signaling Techniques for General Purpose Scalable Computing

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

    Asynchronous circuits offer the potential for significant power savings over traditional clocked logic. We propose to develop an electronic design, synthesis, and management tool targeted at low-power, asynchronous circuit design. We will Deliver a functional prototype tool during Phase I. The Phase II tool will support VHDL as a hardware description for high-level language input, technology mappi ...

  3. All Fiber Circulator

    SBC: Tetra Tech Data Systems            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses the development of an all fiber optical circulator. Optical networks utilizing reflective elements (e.g. fiber Bragg gratings) as wavelength selective add/drop multiplexers or sensors will require optical circulators to extract the reflected signal. In addition to functioning as a circulator, the proposed device also functions as an isolator. Isolators are needed in optic ...

  4. Secure Optical Communications with Quantum Random Digital Noise (QRDN)- PR95-015

    SBC: Tetra Tech Data Systems            Topic: N/A

    Conventional algorithmic encryption for securing communications in optical WDM netwroks is not readily scalable to high data rates and is vulnerable to off-line cryptanalysis because the algorithm generates a pseudo-random key stream. We propose instead a new concept that avoids these limitations: it is a quantum random digital noise (QRDN) generator capable of generating the identical random bit ...

  5. Tungsten Composite Self-Forging Fragmenting Warhead

    SBC: Ultramet            Topic: N/A

    Fragmenting warheads offer a high kill radius and lethality against lightly armored targets such as aircraft, personnel carriers, entrenched personnel, missiles, and spacecraft. Increasing the density and controlling the size, shape, and velocity of the fragments can greatly increase warhead lethality and standoff capabilities through an approach called a self-forging fragmenting warhead, which c ...

  6. Adaptive Antenna Processing for Cellular Base Stations

    SBC: VIASAT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A radical new approach to adaptive antenna processing, based on the emerging theory of per Survivor Processing (PSP), is proposed to enhance performance of cellular systems. This approach offers the opportunity to achieve large performance improvements (e.g. improved acquisition., and/or interference rejection) over conventional adaptive antenna array techniques when a large number of users diff ...

  8. Advanced Systems for Detecting and Localizing Mines or Submarines

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

    Electronically steered phase arrays are ideally suited for rapid surface surveillance and sea-spike removal to detect exposed submarine periscopes and cruise missiles. Because of the limited space available on typical warships, the necessary aperature cannot be realized with conventional structures. A novel self-calibrating non-rigid structure is proposed to alleviate this problem. New surface ...

  9. Small Virtual Receiving Antenna

    SBC: Walter Gee & Associates, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Modern manpack or hand held RF communication systems mandate an ultra compact and lightweight transceiver design complemented with a physically small antenna system with extraordinary RF bandwidth, high gain capability and omnidirectional radiation patterns. Also, it is desirable to be able to electronically tune the antenna to a specific operating frequency or band. Furthermore, special communica ...
