  1. Development of Explosive Feedstock for Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) 3D Printers

    SBC: E&G Associates, Inc.            Topic: N171060

    Traditional manufacturing methods for producing warheads, propellants, and pyrotechnic systems are timely and costly. Additive manufacturing (AM) approaches offer one path of alternative manufacturing technologies. Among various technologies, powder bed fusion (PBF) is one promising approach. Hewlett Packards Multi-Jet Fusion printers utilize a unique PBF process that presents a desirable solution ...

  2. Photonic Switch for Laser Power Distribution

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: N171013

    A very fast 1xN optical switch capable of handling high-optical power is proposed. It is designed for switching laser power from a central source to multiple outputs using photonic switch technology that does not have any mechanical moving parts. It is designed to have a very compact size and high-reliability operation suitable for airborne environment. The switching speed will be >10 W of optical ...

  3. Real-time Remotely Sensed Topography and Bathymetry using Visible and LWIR Imagery Acquired from Small UASs

    SBC: INNOVATIVE IMAGING & RESEARCH CORP            Topic: A17060

    Warfighters responsible for planning and conducting A2/AD entry operations require up-to-date, high-quality information within dynamic littoral zones. We plan to develop an easily deployable day-night measurement capability to accurately measure bathymetry, topography, currents and water surface temperature in near real-time from sensors and small computing capabilities housed within small multi-r ...

  4. Modular EP Diagnostic Instrumentation Cluster (MEDIC)

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: AF161004

    ABSTRACT: The Modular EP Diagnostic Instrumentation Cluster (MEDIC) is a self-contained plasma diagnostic instrument suite uniquely suited to the task of characterizing and comparing thruster operation in ground test and on-orbit environments. Of paramount importance to the qualification of electric propulsion (EP) systems is the measurable influence of the ground testing and evaluation (T&E) faci ...

  5. Time-Resolved Electron Beam Fluorescence

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: AF161006

    ABSTRACT: An innovative diagnostic, Time-Resolved Electron Beam Fluorescence (TREBF), will be developed that possesses the measurement capabilities needed to understand test facility effects on electric propulsion (EP) systems. Even the most advanced test and evaluation vacuum chambers are incapable of replicating the pressures encountered in geostationary earth orbits. These elevated background p ...

  6. Electric-based Combined Cycle Thruster for Multi-mode Propulsion

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: AF162010

    The Electric-Based Combined Cycle (EBCC) thruster is a new approach to spacecraft propulsion that combines the high thrust of a chemical combustion system and the high Isp of an electric propulsion thruster into a single thruster. In EBCC, a chemical propellant is burned in a sub-100 N rocket within a pulsed EP system. That decomposed, hot, neutral gas is then accelerated in a 5kWclass neutral ent ...

  8. Enhanced Composite Cryotank

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: SB162014

    The objective of this effort is to develop the capability to produce low-cost high-performance, lightweight composite cryogenic propellant tanks for use on expendable and reusable space access vehicles and hypersonic aircraft. GTL took a major step towards this capability in a previous effort that demonstrated that it was possible to fabricate ultra-thin BHL composite propellant tanks (small-scal ...

  10. Machine learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (SNM)

    SBC: Clostra, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162001

    "Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (DLeN) applies the same deep learning techniques that allow computers to beat human performance in image recognition and the game of Go to detecting Special Nuclear Material. Spectral analysis and signal processing can in some cases be augmented by the use of much larger neural nets that conduct much deeper analysis of features of t ...
