  1. Thermally Efficient Emitter Technology for Advanced Scene/Simulation Capability in Hardware in the Loop Testing

    SBC: ROBERT A. RICHWINE, LLC            Topic: MDA15014

    We introduce a concept and a design for a high-speed, high-temperature infrared scene projector for midwave (MWIR) and longwave infrared (LWIR) application. Results from study of carbon nanotube (CNT) material characteristics, along with field emission and electro-thermal modeling show that higheffective MWIR temperatures can be sustained and projected by a CNT pixel with little or no spillover to ...

  4. Methodologies for Cost-Effective Measurement of Dynamic Material Properties or Characterization of Materials under Dynamic Loads

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: MDA16T003

    Explosions and high-velocity impacts can create strain rates on the order of 105 to 107 s-1.To simulate these events, first-principles codes require material models that are valid at these loading rates.Currently, the amount of test data, material models and material constants for this strain rate range is extremely limited, and an innovative and cost-effective laboratory test procedure is needed. ...

  5. Ferroelectric Capacitors for Pulse Power Electronics

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    HIGH-DENSITY ENERGY STORAGE AND FAST DISCHARGE WILL BE CRITICAL IN A VARIETY OF HIGH POWER AEROSPACE APPLICATIONS. CAPACITORS ARE IDEAL FOR THESE PURPOSES, AS WELL AS FOR POWER CONDITIONING AND FILTERING. UNFORTUNATELY, BULK POWDER-BASED DIELECTRICS USED IN CAPACITORS HAVE SEVERE LIMITATIONS, ESPECIALLY THE HIGH NUMBER OF SHORT-INDUCING DEFECTS CAUSED BY POOR CONTROL OF MATERIAL PROPERTIES IN CERA ...

  6. Net Shape Forming of Fine Grain Structural Ceramic Components

    SBC: Nanomaterials Research LLC            Topic: N/A

    The very high cost of forming finished parts from advanced engineering ceramics severely limits their widespread use. Superplastic forming can help address this technology barrier. Unfortunately, until recently, nothing could be done to induce superplasticity in ceramics. This program will utilize recent breakthroughs that now reproducibly suggest the potential of superplastic forming. It is ant ...

  7. Multiple Rectangular Discharge CO2 Laser

    SBC: Qsource, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An innovative discharge geometry for a very compact, area cooled, high average power CO2 laser employing a two mirror, waveguide-stable optical cavity is proposed. The specific Phase I result sought is the generation of an average CO2 output power of 1 W/cm2 of wall cooling area in a geometry that has a total cooling area of 140 cm2. A lightweight CO2 amplifier version of a future Phase II devic ...

  8. Ultra High Surface Area Aluminum Nanocomposite Powder for Solid Fuel Propellants

    SBC: SIGMA TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Advanced fuels and oxidizers, based on innovative nanotechnology prod cts and techniques are expected to supplant traditional solid and hybrid fuels, including aluminized fuels, commonly used in rocket propellant formulations. The aluminum metal is a stable low cost fuel that increases specific impulse and burn stability, but also introduces several undesirable effects primarily attributable to mo ...
