Advanced Penning Ion Source IB-3139

Researchers from Berkeley Lab have developed the Advanced Penning Ion Source, which offers users an up to eightfold increase in neutron yield over conventional Penning ion sources. The Berkeley Lab technology can generate a higher neutron yield than previous technologies, but without increased...

Aerial bogey discrimination technique

A computer-implemented analysis method is provided for identifying a flight trajectory of a bogey relative to earth's surface. The method includes a first step of obtaining first and second altitudes and velocities of the bogey separated by a first time interval. The second step calculates a first...

Aerogel-Reinforced Composites

GRC's aluminosilicate aerogel composites are fabricated using a sol-gel technique. A sol is formed by hydrolyzing an alumina dispersion in acid solution; the alumina may be combined with a silicon precursor to create a sol. Fabrics, papers, and felts are used as reinforcing fibers to form an...

Air-launched supercavitating water-entry projectile

A supercavitating water-entry projectile having empennage on the aft end which provides both aerodynamic and hydrodynamic stability and a supercavitating nose section is provided. A representative projectile is a subcaliber munition adapted for use in a 25 mm weapon using a sabot currently in use...
