  1. Annular Gas Jet Anode for Decade

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: DTRA04010

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to replace the anode posts of a soft x-ray z-pinch with an azimuthally symmetric shell of high density, low atomic number gas. Once ionized, the gas column carries the current and eliminates particulate debris that is otherwise generated by the return rods. The gas shell also absorbs unwanted UV and hence eliminates the first Li foil filter of t ...

  2. Autonomous Self-powered (ASP) Structural Health Monitoring system

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: A04163

    Acellent Technologies has proposed to develop a self-powered structural health monitoring system for use in monitoring of mission critical structures such as missiles or combat vehicles in the field. The system will be completely autonomous having the capabilities for (1) Energy harvesting for self-power generation, (2) Integrated sensors for robustness, (3) Sensor self-calibration for improved re ...

  4. Refractory Coatings on Mechanically Resilient Insulators


    The purpose of this Phase-II project is to build upon the promising results achieved during Phase-I, where it was shown that ceramic coatings raised the breakdown voltage and reduced the amount of damage and improved the recovery after a breakdown event for plastic insulators. The main goals of the Phase-II are to (1) coat actual insulators for the Shiva and HPM devices for testing, (2) to optimiz ...

  5. Development of HFPB Debris Throw Models for Ordnance Storage and Handling Facilities

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: N06048

    Phase I showed the feasibility of developing of HFPB Debris Throw Models for Ordnance Storage and Handling Facilities using the Material Point Method (MPM) as implemented in Los Alamos' CartaBlanca code. In Phase II, a version of CartaBlanca will be installed on the Navy's supercomputer and be validated to simulate the debris thrown from a reinforced concrete (R/C) structure due to an uncased int ...

  6. Structure from Motion

    SBC: ACUITY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF04170

    We propose to develop a superior 3D surface reconstruction algorithm that operates on monocular aerial video. High quality pose estimates from inertial data will be used to construct dense depth maps of the 3D environment. Each 3D pixel in the reconstruction will be extracted from multiple views in the redundant video stream to minimize the error in the reconstruction. We will refine and adapt the ...

  7. Wing and Bomb Bay Launched (WBBL) Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV)

    SBC: ACUITY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N05005

    The goal of the Acuity Wing and Bomb Bay Launched UAV Phase II program is demonstration of the feasibility and utility of an air vehicle organic to the P3 through development and flight testing of a prototype aircraft. Minimum objectives are runway takeoff, autonomous flight directed by a ground or air based control station through multiple waypoints over a radius of 10 miles or more, live video a ...

  8. Single ply 3Dwoven Functionally Gradient Multi-Fiber / Multi-Matrix Composites with Thermal Management Systems

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF04249

    In composites, not only can properties vary with load direction, fiber based composites also offer the unique ability to tailor material properties locally. Localized matrix or fiber architecture changes can meet local mechanical, electrical, or thermal loads within a component or vehicle, without weight penalty or resort to additional external structures. In Phase I, the team used 3TEX 3-D wea ...

  9. Integrally 3D Woven/3D Braided Composite Joining Elements For Ship Construction

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: N04093

    During Phase I, 3TEX designed universal, one-piece, 3D woven fiber preforms which can be used as either a “Butt” (H) joint or as a “P” joint as needed. Composite joints were fabricated and tested, demonstrating the benefit of the integral nature of the 3D preforms. 3D stress/strain and crack propagation analysis of composite Π-joint was performed using 3D MOSAIC code. 3D displacement, st ...

  10. Novel Structural Joining Concepts Using 3-D Textile Preforms and Composites

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF05248

    Strength and durability of commonly used bonded and bolted composite-to-composite and composite-to-metal structural joints suffer from sharp geometry variations, mismatch of elastic moduli, Poisson’s ratios, coefficients of thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of the adherends, altogether causing high stress concentration and premature joint failure. The proposed work is focused on develop ...
