  1. Novel Manufacturing of Bimetallic Gun Barrels

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: A18090

    Gun barrels are subjected to wear and erosion from the hot propellant gases and high loads from the passage of projectiles.Sustained fire duration and rate of fire are largely limited by barrel thermal considerations, since the heat buildup in the barrel can cause rounds to fire prematurely (cook-off) or weaken the barrel and cause catastrophic failure. A cost effective solution of using a wear re ...

  3. High Bandwidth Redundant Communication Links for Small Satellites

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: A16079

    Small satellites have never lacked the capability to collect large quantities of operationally relevant data. The real limitation in fielding large constellations has been the inability to downlink the large quantities of data. Neither the ground station assets nor the high throughput communications subsystems have existed to close many point-to-point tight-beam links to low-Earth orbit. To satisf ...

  6. A16-010 Laser-scanned FPI with Custom-Engineered Quantum Dot Penetrant for Bore Inspection

    SBC: Laser Techniques Company, LLC            Topic: A16010

    Fluorescent penetrant inspection (FPI) is a commonly-used non-destructive evaluation (NDE) method for the detection of microscopic cracks.However, conventional FPI has serious limitations including the potential of hydrogen embrittlement, which can result in post-inspection damage to the parts being inspected.Additionally, small bores and tubes are very difficult to inspect using visual FPI method ...
