  1. HEMETS- Human Error Modeling for Error Tolerant Systems

    SBC: D.N. AMERICAN            Topic: N03130

    D.N. American proposes the development of a Human Error Modeling tool for Error Tolerant Systems (HEMETS) which will simulate human performance on complex systems in order to provide system designers with information on what aspects of their design are likely to lead to human error. Furthermore, HEMETS will provide recommendations to the designers so they can improve their design in order to elimi ...

  2. Advanced High Mass Fraction Tactical Rocket Motor Case

    SBC: FMW COMPOSITE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF04199

    The higher Mach number flight capability required in future missile systems has necessitated the development of advanced materials capable of surviving the increased thermal loads expected in these systems. Although previous research has indicated that titanium matrix composites (TMCs) are a potential solution to this problem, the high cost of these materials has severely hindered their considerat ...

  5. Innovative Weight Efficient Combined Structural/Thermal Protection System (TPS) Concepts

    SBC: FMW COMPOSITE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF04248

    The current approach to providing thermal protection to aero-vehicles is to use a parasitic thermal protection system (TPS) that protects the primary structure while transferring the aerodynamic loads to the same primary structure. This approach increases the complexity of the vehicle system that, in turn, complicates fabrication and inspection of the structure. In addition, this approach also i ...

  6. Carbon Foam Exhaust to Reduce Ground Vehicle Observables

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: N03165

    Touchstone Research Laboratory has developed a novel material, CFOAM®, with the ability to reduce the thermal signature of exhaust ducting. The primary enabling carbon foam characteristic is tailorable specific thermal conductivity while providing better structural properties at elevated temperatures than traditional insulation materials. Carbon foams also resist chemical and environmental corros ...

  8. Advanced Thermal Management System for Military Applications of the Scramjet Cycle

    SBC: FMW COMPOSITE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF05192

    The recent successful flight tests of a scramjet have moved to the cycle closer to military application. One key barrier to military utilization of the scrajet is high weights in the engine. The current engine uses an inconel actively cooled wall on the engine. Recent developments in Titanium Matrix Components (TMC) offer a breakthrough potential of cutting the weight of the engine in half. FM ...

  10. Carbon Foam Composites for EMI-Shielded Shelters

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: AF05270

    Touchstone Research Laboratory proposes to investigate use of a CFOAM core in a sandwich panel configuration for an all-composite, low-cost, lightweight, EMI-shielded Rigid Wall Relocatable Structure (RWRS). Carbon foam offers excellent EMI shielding properties due to its high electrical conductivity. An all-composite shelter would eliminate metallic components that are susceptible to environmen ...
