  1. Naval Device Applications of Relaxor Piezoelectric Single Crystals

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    "We propose a directional, broadband, highly efficient underwater acoustic transducer using a baffled cylinder made out from piezoelectric single crystals. The prospective application areas will be for an underwater acoustic modem communication andAutonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV), in which high efficiency of the transducer system is required due to the limited energy availability (battery) an ...

  2. Naval Device Applications of Relaxor Piezoelectric Single Crystals

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    "This proposal is for the development of a high sensitivity pressure gradient acoustic motion sensor (accelerometer) of the flexural plate type using piezoelectric single crystals. The pressure gradient acoustic motion sensor is based on flexural plateelements operating below resonance in the accelerometer mode. The high piezoelectric coefficients for single crystals is ideal for increasing the ...

  4. Inert metal encapsulation of magnetic particles for improved magnetic field effects at fuel cell electrodes

    SBC: ELECTROPHORICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Magnetic field-enhanced electrocatalysis at the hydrogen and air electrodes of PEM fuel cells have reported improved power densities, three-fold over conventional PEMFCs. Leddy, et al. used micron-sized polymer-encapsulated beads of permanent magnetsplaced in conventional inks of carbon-supported platinum electrocatalysts to enhance MEA performance. Their work showed a qualitatively improved CO ...

  6. Deep Desulfurization of Diesel and JP-8 Using Novel Adsorbents

    SBC: MesoSystems Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Power generation using fuel cells is an attractive option for military and commercial applications. In particular, the military is interested in generating hydrogen from JP-8 fuels as it represents a logistic fuel. A main bottleneck in processing JP-8 anddiesel fuels is the fact that these fuels contain refractory sulfur compounds such as thiophenes and alkyl and substituted thiophenes. Hydrogen ...

  7. Chromium Nitride Barrel Implant/Coating for Extended Barrel Life

    SBC: North Star Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    In our phase I work we propose to develop and test a mulilayer, ion implanted chrome nitride coating with unique applicability to gun barrel lifetime improvement. We will create an ion implanted CrN coating on top of the present chrome coating of the gunbarrel. This coating will have low friction, good hardness and excellent resistance to cracking. Ion implanted coatings have excellent practica ...

  9. Shielding Effectiveness Estimation using Statistical Modeling Techniques

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    "An investigation to determine the applicability of statistical modeling techniques to shielding effectiveness estimation of complex, irregular structures is proposed. In particular, the ability to extrapolate existing shielding effectiveness data tosimilar structures (similitude) is of interest. Accuracy, efficiency, validation and usefulness are the evaluation criteria used to establish applicab ...

  10. Injecting Reactive Materials into Targets in Conjunction with Shaped Charge Warheads

    SBC: TECH ENERGETICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Shaped charge warheads using reactive-metal liners have potential for increased lethality. Reactive-metal liners are limited by low ductility, material incompatibilities, and poor penetration. Current designs for explosively formed projectiles (EFPs)lack significant capability for behind armor effects. Tech Energetics, Inc. (TEI) will develop metallurgically bonded, multi-layered shaped charge ...
