  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. Cavitation Peening for Improved Ballistic Performance

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: N171037

    A need exists to improve the ballistic response of armor for Littoral Combat Ships. Simply increasing armor thickness is unacceptable because the associated increase in weight and space would reduce vessel performance speed and range. Surface treatment techniques for current armor materials such as steel, aluminum and ceramic may improve armor performance significantly without an associated weight ...

  3. Fast Rise-time High Power Radio Frequency (HPRF) Pulse Shaping

    SBC: Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N172135

    Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc. (EHT) is collaborating with researchers at the Pulsed Power and Power Electronics Center at Texas Tech University (TTU) to develop a high-power microwave switch that is capable of very fast rise times, adjustable pulse width, and high pulse repetition frequency (PRF). EHT has developed solid-state pulsed power systems that has the potential to improve the performanc ...

  4. Advanced Fast Shutter for Debris Mitigation

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143007

    In an effort to development more robust optical system coatings DTRA, in collaboration with Sandia National Labs, is working to characterize the degradation of optical materials for space systems when exposed to high intensely EUV/ cold x-rays. The experiments utilizes the Double Eagle z-pinch facility which generates high current, high voltage arc pinch plasma to produce an intense EUV and cold x ...

  5. Novel Munition Technologies to Attack and Defeat Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143004

    Traditional weapon systems often fail to meet the requirements of close combat typical of the previously discussed engagement, where insurgents often blend in or store weapon amongst friendly or non-combatant forces, to shield them from precision strike munitions of a technologically superior force. This type of warfare has led to an increased focus on the use of less-lethal weapons, to reduce let ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Novel Composite for High Performance Thermal Interface Material

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: N171081

    Navy operational needs dictate that thermal interface materials (TIMs) have high thermal conductance, high dielectric strength, form non-permanent bonds, and be resilient to vibration and abrasion. Available TIMs each satisfy a portion of these requirements, but not all of them.Glacigen Materials will develop a new class of TIM by creating a novel composite material. This material will be embodied ...

  8. Lightweight Self-Start System for T56 Engine Driven Aircraft

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N171028

    The Navy needs a small, self-contained, lightweight system for starting E-2D T56 engines to allow for remote field operations. We propose to develop a Rocket Fuel Starter (RFS) to meet Navy needs. Our RFS uses a liquid-fuel rocket engine to drive a turbine that generates shaft power to start the T56 engine. We project our RFS will fit in available spaces and will weigh significantly less than 200 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Multi-sensor ASW Pod System (MAPS)

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: N151058

    The Multi-sensor ASW Pod System (MAPS) effort will develop an integrated system for vertical takeoff unmanned aerial vehicle anti-submarine warfare operations. MAPS will be composed of a podded system capable of conducting acoustic search operations, utilizing standard A-size sonobuoys and bathythermobuoys, and localized Magnetic Anomaly Detector (MAD) final targeting operations, utilizing modern ...
