  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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. Carbon Foam Lightning and Thermal Protection System

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: MDA14014

    Touchstone proposes to build on past thermal protection system (TPS) efforts and develop an innovative lightweight and low-cost system that provides protection from lightning strikes as well as from heat and atmospheric debris. This will be accomplished by utilizing a lightweight carbon foam (CFOAM) as the foundational material and varying the properties of the foam through choice of precursor an ...

  9. Inferring Mission Perils using Aggregate Cube Thresholds (IMPACT)

    SBC: Nextgen Federal Systems LLC            Topic: AF151041

    ABSTRACT:Historically, including weather advice within on-going deliberations and planning has relied largely on a time consuming process of disconnected mental fusion of various sources from different systems to gain a shared understanding of the natural battlespace. The application of weather advice on a near real-time basis has been largely ignored except for very specific missions and location ...
