  1. Innovative Techniques for Missile Defense- Proportional Hot Gas Actuator for DACS

    SBC: APPLIED THERMAL SCIENCES            Topic: MDA04020

    A key component of missile interceptor vehicles is the divert and attitude control system (DACS), which is responsible for maneuvering the interceptor vehicle to its target. A vital component to the DACS is the thruster, which provides effective control of vehicle divert. Solid propellant DACS thrusters employ an adjustable pintle for controlling the thrust level. Movement of the pintle for smo ...

  2. Chemical/Biological Agent Non-Intrusive Detection

    SBC: Brandt Innovative Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05005

    We propose to demonstrate the ability to non-evasively probe the characteristics of material properties using acoustical waves through thermal conversion of a remote laser pulse. The advantages of proposed system as an inspection and identification technique are: 1) Non-contact: Sensor does not require contact with container 2) Stand-off: Sensor could be located many meters away from container 3 ...

  4. Fundamentally New Therapeutic for the Treatment of Acinetobacter Baumannii Wound Infections

    SBC: CONJUGON, INC.            Topic: A05170

    An increasing number of infections caused by the pathogenic and multi-drug-resistant bacterium Acinetobacter baumannii has been reported in patients at military medical facilities in which service members were injured in the Iraq/Kuwait region during Operation Iraqi Freedom and in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom. Due to their drug resistance, these infections have been difficult to ...

  5. Rapid Soil Texture Classification Using the Soil Imaging Penetrometer

    SBC: Soil and Topography Information            Topic: A04152

    Soil texture is a critical soil information input to site suitability, mobility, counter-mine, and engineering models. Traditional methods of obtaining soil information are inefficient, inconsistent, and could require time-consuming and expensive laboratory analyses. In addition, a high level of soil expertise may be required on-site. A soil imaging system could provide a more efficient and con ...

  6. Efficient Low-Cost Ceramic Grade Nicalon Textile Sizing for High-Temperature Polymer Matrix Composites

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: N05025

    High temperature polymer matrix composites (PMC's) offer significant advantages for military engine and airframe applications through reduced weight and improved stiffness over comparable metal components and structures. Sizing supplied on silcon carbide fiber is not thermally stable at high temperature matrix polymer processing temperatures. To manufacture aerospace quality components, sizing co ...

  7. Development of Durable, Fiber-Reinforced Refractory Composites for Thermal Protection Systems (TPSs)

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: AF05137

    Next-generation endo/exoatmospheric hypersonic vehicles require durable thermal protection systems (TPSs) for leading edges, control surfaces and skin acreage that are resistant to impact damage. Fiber Materials Inc. (FMI) proposes a multidirectional fiber reinforced C/C-SiC TPS that demonstrates high impact durability for both low and high velocity debris. FMI's multidirectional C/C-SiC outer s ...

  10. Integrated Missile Harness-Fairing Assembly

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: MDA04111

    A need exists for a state-of-the-art electrical interconnection assembly that will simplify missile manufacture and assembly at a reduced cost relative to current methods. It should provide thermal protection, facilitate internal individual EMI shielding from each bundle type as well as external sources, and minimize the harness-fairing profile reducing aerodynamic forces. Fiber Materials, Inc. ( ...
