  1. MATERIALS AND PROCESSES FOR ASEROSPACE RTM

    SBC: Abaris            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. AIR FORCE HAS AN INTEREST IN HIGH RATE, LOW COST, PRODUCTION PROCESSES FOR AIRCRAFT PARTS. ABARIS PROPOSES A COMBINED ANALYSIS AND TESTING PROJECT TO EXPLORE MODIFYING PRESENT RESIN TRANSFER MOLDING (RTM) TECHNIQUES TO EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF THEIR USE IN THE PRODUCTION OF HIGH PERFORMANCE, AEROSPACE, COMPOSITE MATERIALS. EPOXY RESINS SHALL BE UTILIZED IN COMBINATION WITH GRAPHITE REI ...

  2. C02/Water Microemulsion Fire Suppression in Dry Bays

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF083250

    Fires in dry bays of military aircraft present a significant hazard that must be addressed with advanced fire suppression systems. The USAF is interested in concepts that do not require power or active sensing of fire for proper operation. ADA Technologies, Inc. has been developing fine water mist fire suppression technology for the past 10 years, and proposes a solution for this problem that inco ...

  3. Autonomous Nonbattery Wireless Strain Gage for Structural Health Testing and Monitoring in Extreme Environments

    SBC: Albido Corporation            Topic: AF08BT01

    There is a need to monitor the structural health of aerospace components operating in extreme temperatures ranges (e.g. -60 to +300C) and with high accelerations. Ideally the sensors employed for this task should be passive (i.e. not powered through batteries), permanently placed on the critical components and transmit the relevant data to a remote data processing center wirelessly.  Albido is pr ...

  4. Protecting Polymers from the Natural Space Environment with Films Grown Using Atomic Layer Deposition

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: AF07T011

    Polymers in space are subjected to various threats including hyperthermal oxygen atoms, UV and VUV photons, and ions.  These threats can degrade the polymer and lead to static charge accumulation.  This Phase II proposal will build on the Phase I work which demonstrated that inorganic films grown by atomic layer deposition (ALD) can protect polymers such as Kapton, Teflon and PMMA.  Al2O3 ALD f ...

  5. CONCRETE SPALL PROTECTION DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HIGH PRESSURE BLAST OR IMPACT LOADS ON THE OUTSIDE OF A CONCRETE WALL CAN CAUSE SPALLING OF THE INSIDE OF THE WALL. FLYING SPALL FRAGMENTS ARE DANGEROUS TO PERSONAL AND EQUIPMENT INSIDE CONCRETE BUILDINGS SUBJECTED TO ATTACK OR ACCIDENTIAL EXPLOSION. THIS PROPOSAL DETAILS THE LOGICAL, STEP-BY-STEP DEVELOPMENT OF A SPALL PROTECTION SYSTEM THAT CAN BE APPLIED TO NEW AND EXISTING CONCRETE WALLS. THE ...

  6. AN OPTIMAL MISSILE SHAPE DESIGN PACKAGE

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OVERALL GOAL OF PHASE I AND PHASE II IS TO DEVELOP SOFTWARE THAT WILL FIND THE OPTIMAL SIZE AND SHAPE OF MISSILE DESIGNS ACCORDING TO USER DEFINED DESIGN CRITERIA. PHASE I WILL SHOW THE FEASIBILITY OF MISSILE SHAPE DESIGN OPTIMIZATION BY COMBINING A GEOMETRIC MODELER, OPTIMIZATION SOFTWARE, AND FREE-FORM DEFORMATION WITH AN ANALYSIS MODULE. THE PHASE I ANALYSIS MODULE WILL CONTAIN AERODYNAMICS ...

  7. Advanced Electronic Cooling Technologies

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: AF083222

    Aqwest proposes to develop an advanced thermal management for cooling of electronic components using a variable conductance heat sink (VCHS) offering unparalleled capabilities in high-heat flux handling and temperature control. The project will produce a cooling system with the following benefits to wide band gap amplifiers and high-power laser diodes (HPLD): 1) Heat flux handling > 1200 W/cm2 2) ...

  8. LOW-LOSS MICROWAVE PROBES FOR NOISE PARAMETER MEASUREMENTS

    SBC: Cascade Microtech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NOISE PARAMETER MEASUREMENTS OF MICROWAVE TRANSISTORS AND MMICS ARE BEST PERFORMED WITH ON-WAFER, PROBE SYSTEMS. TWO KEY PARAMETERS OF THESE SYSTEMS IS THE LOSS FROM THE INPUT TUNER TO THE DEVICE UNDER TEST (DUT), AND FROM THE DUT TO THE RECEIVER; THIS IS TYPICALLY DOMINATED BY THE WAFER PROBE. THIS PHASE I WORK WILL DEMONSTRATE A WAFER PROBE PROTOYPE WITH SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER LOSS THAN CURRENTLY A ...

  9. Small Unpiloted Aircraft System (SUAS) Auto-tracking of Moving and Stationary Targets

    SBC: SOLUTION ENGINEERING            Topic: AF083129

    Solution Engineering, Inc. (SEI) proposes to develop and demonstrate a prototype real time tracking system that supports robust multiple target tracking in an urban environment.  The approach will focus on increasing the robustness of the core feature tracking algorithms, utilizing target invariant characteristics to extend the ability to track, coast, and reacquire targets.  In addition higher ...
