This report describes an experimental program (SBIR Phase I) to demonstrate the technical feasibility of using an ultrasonic standing wave field to promote coalescence of airborne dusts in order to improve the separation efficiency of typical inertial separators such as current precleaners. Major project tasks included assembly of an ultrasonic coalescence array; measurement of the dust mass passing through an inertial separator as a function of upstream dust concentration, airflow rate, and ultrasonic power level; and calculation of the improvement in separator efficiency as a function of coalescence. The results clearly demonstrate the technical feasibility of using an ultrasonic standing wave field to alter the particle size distribution of airborne dust in order to improve the performance of existing inertial separators, such as those used for precleaner in state-of-the-art air cleaner systems. Importantly, there is no pressure drop across the standing wave field and hence the problems typically associated with barrier filter loading can be avoided. Ultrasonic, Dust, Precleaners

Fifty years of successful counterproliferation efforts are coming to an end. Many countries are decided on acquiring weapons of mass destruction (WMD), something that this nation cannot prevent. The likelihood that such devices will get into the hands of a rogue state, terrorist group, or dissidents violently opposed to U.S. interests cannot be discounted. This threat is unlike any other confronted by America in its history. Concern over WMD led Congress to mandate the enhancement of domestic preparedness and response measures to cope with terrorist attacks involving the use of nuclear, radiological, biological, and chemical weapons in the Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1997. The responsibilities of individual federal agencies were further delineated in Executive Order 12656

Stabilizing US-Pakistan Relations: A Way Forward ( )

Following 9/11, the US sought (and secured) a new relationship with Pakistan. The new relationship was essential if Al Qaeda and its Taliban sponsors were to be driven from Afghanistan. Forgotten immediately was that Pakistan was under multiple US sanctions for its nuclear weapons program and Musharraf's coup. Unspoken also in forging the new relationship was that a deep bitterness over perceived past misdeeds characterized each side's view of the other. But 9/11 overwhelmed the need for introspection or deep dialogue, and Pakistan once again became a major US ally. The new relationship, however, is fraught with the legacy of past interactions all of which ended in bitter "divorces". It comes as no surprise, then, that the latest installment, in which the US has invested $11 billion, is not playing out as hoped. This has made manifest by a threatening Taliban-Al Qaeda resurgence radiating from Pakistan's tribal areas a consequence of the Pakistan military's inability (or unwillingness) to act decisively. As a result, US policy is now in need of serious revision. This paper addresses the nature of US-Pakistan relations and offers some recommendations on how cooperation can be better structured to achieve mutual long-term interests
