  1. Distributed Automatic Reconfigurable Transponder (DART)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Williams-Pyro, Inc. (WPI) has designed and successfully demonstrated a proof-of-concept of the Distributed Automatic Reconfigurable Transponder (DART) that will be capable of achieving distributed multi-nodal voice/data communication for fire fighters. In Phase 2 we will focus on developing a fully functional system that reduces communication failure while maintaining a robust and flexible system. ...

  2. Vinyl Ester Compatible High-Modulus Fiber System for Composite Laminates

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N04094

    An aqueous-based finish (sizing) was developed in Phase I to improve the carbon/vinyl ester interfacial bond. The finish is composed of a reactive coupling agent, a low viscosity vinyl ester resin, a free radical inhibitor, and a surfactant. The reactive finishes substantially improved the carbon/vinyl ester interface compared to unsized or FOE sized materials. Failure mode analysis shows that ...

  3. High Temperature Finishes/Sizings for Polyimide Matrix Composites

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N04251

    New high-temperature sizings are needed to improve the properties and durability of carbon/polyimide composites. Compatibility with weaving and braiding operations and improved wetting during prepregging or resin infusing polyimide resin is also needed. Achieving these characteristics will result in reducing life cycle costs for jet engine composites through better property translation, reduced ...

  4. Finishing Process to Improve Interfacial Bonding in SiC/BMI Composites

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N05025

    High-temperature (HT) polymer matrix composites (PMCs) are desired for many aerospace and military applications. Silicon carbide (SiC) fibers provide a potentially attractive reinforcement for HT PMCs for applications ranging from propulsion systems to structures for the orbiting space plane. The sizings routinely added to commercial SiC fibers are not compatible with the new HT matrix resins. ...

  5. Phosphorous-Containing Epoxy Resins for Room Temperature VARTM

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N06T017

    The Navy intends to start using a significant quantity of composite structures in surface ship construction in an effort to decrease costs as well as to reduce the visibility of the ships to radar. The large size of the target structures necessitates the use of low temperature, non-autoclave processing techniques such as Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding (VARTM). In the recent past, most m ...

  6. Sealant Application Process and Technology Development

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Processes            Topic: N05144

    Advanced Materials & Processes (AMP) has identified a viable approach for applying Class B or C sealants that will meet quality criteria for thickness, porosity, continuity, and application time. The project will develop a rapid dispensing process for consistent application of the minimum weight of sealants to solid surfaces. Current methods are time consuming and applicator dependent, resulting ...

  7. Miniaturized Impulsive Discharge Acoustic Source (MIDAS)

    SBC: ECHO TECHNICAL            Topic: N06041

    Echo Technical proposes to develop an innovative Miniaturized Impulsive Discharge Acoustic Source (MIDAS) to support the conduct of multi-static Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) missions. The solution proposed is based on a capacitive discharge acoustic source that produces high amplitude impulsive acoustic signals in response to a coded interrogation signal. The MIDAS package incorporates a GPS rec ...

  8. Flameless Oxidation/Combustion

    SBC: GENERAL VORTEX ENERGY, INC.            Topic: N06082

    This program is directed at determining the critical conditions to obtain flameless oxidation condition in gas turbine engine combustion condition. The fuel preparation, efficient mixing in compact space and time, and ignition are critical for achieving flameless oxidation of fuel. The dynamic range of fuel-air mixtures, air preheats temperature and oxidant environment must be relevant for engine ...

  9. Fuel Cell Energy Recovery

    SBC: GENERAL VORTEX ENERGY, INC.            Topic: N05158

    The mission of GVE with this research grant is to develop high power density, high-efficiency energy recovery system for fuel cell system. Utilization of its patented Jirnov Vortex Turbine (JVT) bottoming cycle engine will increase the overall efficiency of fuel cell. The robust design of the JVT allows using a fuel cell raffinate stream for the bottoming cycle. The fuel cell stream consists of h ...

  10. Lightweight Compact Micro-Channel Heat Exchangers

    SBC: International Mezzo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N05087

    The objective for this program is to increase the technical readiness level (TRL) of a Return Fuel Air Cooled (RFAC) heat exchanger (HX) based on Mezzo Technologies' proprietary microchannel technology to TRL 6 and an Oil/Fuel HX to a TRL 5. Mezzo will team with Lockheed Martin on this program. The target application for this program will be the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF).
