  2. Landing Gear Fatigue Model K Modification

    SBC: Select Engineering Services            Topic: AF161018

    Air Force landing gear systems are subjected to surface treatment processes (e.g., chrome plating, cadmium plating, anodizing) an indefinite number of times throughout their service life. During these processes, components are exposed to environments and chemicals which affect material surface conditions (e.g., roughness, residual stresses, microstructure) and reduce fatigue life. This reduction i ...

  5. Energy Storage System

    SBC: Select Engineering Services            Topic: AF171064

    This project will develop and demonstrate a rechargeable Energy Storage System (ESS) that will interface directly into an adjustable frequency drive controlling a 100 HP 460 VAC 3 phase induction motor. The ESS must store enough energy to supply the existing motor/motor drive as it lifts and lowers a 14,000-lb. weight 180 3 times in succession. The ESS must integrate directly into an existing syst ...

  7. Structural Directed Energy and Nuclear Effect Mitigation of Composite Aeroshells for Munitions

    SBC: Conductive Composites Company, L.L.C.            Topic: AF171109

    Next generation munition systems must be capable of operating in and mitigating a multitude of threats. These threats include intentional enemy electromagnetic countermeasures in contested environments, electromagnetic interference form a congested spectrum, as well as environmental threats (such as adverse weather) and even solar weather events and cosmic radiation. As diverse as these threats ar ...

  10. Atomically smooth surfaces as substrates for advanced neutron supermirrors

    SBC: American Physics and Technology LLC            Topic: 12a

    Neutron scattering facilities are a key resource aiding the diverse and growing revolution in nano-science and technology-An ongoing challenge for these facilities is providing sufficient neutron flux for an acceptable signal-to-noise ratio for ever more precise experiments-Presently much of the neutron flux is lost because of inefficiencies in the hundreds of meters beam guides and other optics- ...
