Abstract:

In Phase II, Tanner Research proposes to continue leveraging multiple ongoing projects to implement low-cost micro-energetics devices for use as `micro-scale' initiators and detonators. Tanner's novel polymer based processes allow fabrication on non-traditional substrates 100x cheaper than the typical semiconductor substrate. Thus, enabling a generic need for devices with multifunctional use across a wider range of emerging applications. This includes developing an S&A interface substrate structure that is capable of being used with the Army's current S&A program. Tanner is developing the MEMS-based mass fabrication techniques to enable multifunctional design modifications that will demonstrate micro initiator suitability for widespread use across multiple types of munitions, including processes for single-point and multi-point precision-application detonators. During Phase II, Tanner will further refine the mass manufacturing techniques, including the loading of energetics, to ensure quality devices can be fabricated in appropriate quantities at low-cost. Furthermore, Tanner will ensure the manufacturing process has design portability for implementation at TACOM-ARDEC.
