Abstract:

The goal of this SBIR Phase II is to produce a polished PCA tangent ogive dome using VIBE. VIBE is a conformal, high speed polishing process that utilizes many of the concepts known to conventional lapping (grinding) and polishing and combines them with a high frequency motion to maximize removal rates. During Phase I, it was shown that the VIBE platform could be used to efficiently lap and polish the inside surface of a NBK-7 tangent ogive surface. In addition, high material removal rates on flat PCA witness samples were demonstrated with the VIBE process. Together with CNC generating platforms, and research in this Phase II (VIBE lapping and polishing, modified mounting fixtures and in-process measurement techniques) will produce a VIBE polished PCA tangent ogive.
