  1. Improved Manufacturing Technologies for Polymer Matrix Composite Engine Components

    SBC: 2PHASE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06115

    This proposal addresses the development and use of lightweight, low thermal-capacity reformable tooling materials for high-temperature composite processing evaluation, parts prototyping, trial production and full-rate production of PMC engine components. The weight-saving promise of high-temperature polymer matrix composites (PMCs) for engine components is offset by the very high costs of parts m ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Closed Loop Composite Recycling Process

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF06081

    The recycling of composites on a large scale is an unsolved problem. Currently, the material is either ground up into near-worthless fillers, incinerated, or digested using environmentally questionable technology. Adherent Technologies, Inc. has developed a number of technologies to reclaim valuable carbon fiber and other raw materials from these composites in a potentially economically feasible ...

  4. Development and Optimization of Innovative 3D “Confetti” Miniature Antennas for HF Communications

    SBC: Aerotonomy, Incorporated            Topic: N06T032

    Aerotonomy, Incorporated, and our research institution partner Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) propose to Design and optimize a miniature 3D fragmented “Confetti” antenna for application to broadband voice communications over the frequency range of 2 to 30 MHz. The Confetti antenna is an arrangement of partially interconnected wires on a three-dimensional grid. The concept is similar t ...

  5. MEMS-Based Aero-optics Simulator System

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: AF06T030

    This effort joins the MEMS-based deformable mirror technology available from AgilOptics, a New Mexico small business, with the aero-optics technology of the University of Notre Dame to develop an Aero-optics Simulator. This simulator will develop a library of aero-optics patterns to simulate atmospheric distortions for test and evaluation of military or commercial beam control systems.

  6. CMAS mitigation for TBCs using a novel aluminum-phosphate based overlay coating

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N06032

    Applied Thin Films, Inc. proposes to use and an innovative aluminum phosphate solution based coating material to act as a sacrificial barrier layer to protect zirconia thermal barrier coatings from molten CMAS ingress and attack. The proposed coating material, known as Cerablak™, will ideally prevent any decrease in zirconia TBC lifetime expectancy and insulation efficiency due to CMAS infiltra ...

  7. Nano-Engineered Coating for Barrel Life Enhancement

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: AF06350

    Extending gun barrel life has been a long-standing goal for the US Air Force and other DoD agencies. Currently-used chrome plated barrels are susceptible to erosion and corrosion which affects the accuracy of fired bullets due to material loss along the inner surface. The primary cause of barrel degradation is the poor quality chrome coating and attack of steel inner surface by hot gases and comb ...

  8. Formal-Verification-Based Tool for Deobfuscation of Tamper-Proofed Software

    SBC: Aries Design Automation, LLC            Topic: OSD06NC5

    The rapid increase in the use of the Internet in many aspects of our lives has led to an explosive growth in the spread of malware such as computer worms, viruses, and trojans. Security tools typically examine software for the presence of malware either by looking for specific byte signatures, or (more recently) by analyzing the candidate binary’s internal logic. However, it is surprisingly easy ...

  9. Compact HPM Sources

    SBC: ASR Corporation            Topic: OSD05D07

    The MATRIX oscillator was developed as a tunable wideband HPM source for use by the AFRL in threat testing. The fundamental physics of hydrogen insulation used in the MATRIX oscillator as well as the overall topology limit the voltage-frequency-Q (VFQ) product of the current system. Through the application of dual-resonant topology and revised insulation, the output of the MATRIX oscillator conc ...

  10. Development of commercially useable codes to simulate aluminized propellant combustion, and related issues

    SBC: BUCKMASTER RESEARCH            Topic: AF06T012

    We propose to examine the necessary ingredients for the development of marketable codes which will: model the morphology of heterogeneous propellants (a packing code); calculate the thermal and mechancial properties of such a morphology or pack; simulate the combustion of the pack; predict the statistics of aluminum agglomeration on the burning pack surface; simulate the flight of these agglomera ...
