  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. 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 ...

  7. Simultaneous EEG Acquisition and Portable Near Infrared Spectroscopy for Recognition of Traumatic Brain Injury Severity and Outcome Assessments in Far

    SBC: Electrical Geodesics, Inc.            Topic: OSD04H11

    The integration of NIRS measures with EEG could be a significant advance in rapid detection and continuous monitoring of cerebral dysfunction following traumatic brain injury. We have developed a dense array EEG system that can be applied rapidly in the field environment. We have developed a prototype NIRS brain imaging system that can be integrated with the EEG system, in both sparse and dense ar ...

  8. 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 ...
