  3. Artifact Reduced Tomographic Algorithms

    SBC: JDLL, INC.            Topic: A03019

    Current computed tomography (CT) techniques for nondestructive testing (NDT) of munitions and other non-medical specimens often produce inferior imagery due to artifacts, impairing detection, identification, and measurement of anomalies. In this Phase II, JDLL generalizes its Phase I artifact-reducing CT algorithms to 3D cone-beam configurations, testing these algorithms against real data, perman ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Composite, High-Temperature Seals for Gas Separation Membrane Devices

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 44c

    76066S Ceramic membranes with ion-specific conducting properties can provide gases with purity unmatched by other gas separation methods. However, in order to realize the full potential of these membrane devices, high temperature seal materials are required to isolate the ultrahigh purity product gas from the inlet gas mixture. This project will develop a composite seal material that combines t ...

  10. 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 ...
