  1. Environmentally Friendly Cold Plasma Coating Removal Techniques

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC PLASMA SOLUTIONS            Topic: AF081041

    The DOD requires an environmentally friendly, rapid, and non-destructive method to selectively remove coatings from composite substrates.  Atmospheric Plasma Solutions Inc. (APS) has developed a cold atmospheric plasma process to accomplish this goal. Current processes for the removal of coatings from composite materials are slow, expensive, and potentially damaging to the environment. APS has de ...

  2. Robust Wideband Aircraft Altitude Estimation for Over-the-Horizon HF Radar

    SBC: STRAD Corporation            Topic: AF083184

    Robust altitude estimation for over-the-horizon HF radar requires a combination of advanced signal processing and high fidelity ionospheric propagation modeling. Since aircraft height is manifested in closely-spaced direct and ground-bounce multipath reflections off the target, we propose two new high resolution signal processing methods for discriminating small time delay differences from a seque ...

  3. Microwave system for small-scale treatment of rocket propellant laboratory derived waste

    SBC: CHA CORP.            Topic: AF083263

    A great opportunity exists to develop a clean, efficient, and commercially viable process for destroying environmentally hazardous waste propellants, explosives, and pyrotechnics (PEP).  In this Phase I feasibility effort, the CHA Corporation (CHA) proposes to develop a small-scale microwave system capable of destroying experimental, laboratory-derived rocket propellant waste to non-detectable le ...

  4. Accelerated Development of High-Performance Mo-Si-B-X Alloys via an Approach of Integrating Thermodynamic Modeling with Experimental Study

    SBC: Computherm, LLC            Topic: AF07T003

    The proposed study aims at accelerated development of Mo-Si-B-X (X=Ti, Zr, Hf, Re, Mn) alloys with an optimized balance of properties, via an approach of integrating thermodynamic modeling with experimental study.   On the basis of the Mo-Si-B-X (X=Ti, Zr, Hf) database developed in Phase I, a thermodynamic database of the Mo-Si-B-O-X (X=Ti, Zr, Hf, Re, Mn) system will be developed using the Calp ...

  5. A Modeling Tool for Predicting the Durability of Environmental Barrier Coatings (EBC) for Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC)

    SBC: Computherm, LLC            Topic: AF083070

    CompuTherm, LLC proposes a pilot project to develop a modeling tool that can be used to assess the durability of environmental barrier coatings (EBCs) for ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) under combustion environment. The modeling tool includes a thermodynamic database for the gas phase, a thermodynamic database for the silicate system (EBCs), and a computer software package that deals with thermo ...

  6. Electrical power generation for sustained high speed flight

    SBC: Rivis, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT25

    Development of a compliant microfabricated heat exchanger to work with thermoelectric devices as a means of power generation for hypersonic vehicles is proposed. Polymer-based materials provide to provide compression on the thermoelectric module, to ensure optimal thermal contact, while allowing for compliance to allow for the change in materials expansion without exceeding the failure point of th ...

  7. Technologies for the Rapid Curing of Composite Parts

    SBC: FIREBIRD ADVANCED MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: AF083C068

    Certain polymer resins used in the manufacturing of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) aerospace components have relatively long autoclave cure cycles on the order of 6 hours or more.  These long cure cycles cause bottlenecks and inefficiencies when producing composite parts with these thermoset resins. This project will investigate and develop a new manufacturing process for rapidly curing c ...

  8. Failure Initiation Prediction for Reliability-Based Design of Hybrid Composite Materials

    SBC: Firehole Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF08T025

    The opportunity identified here is to expand the capabilities of Multicontinuum Technology (MCT) for prediction of failure initiation in complex (hybrid) composites. A successful Phase 1 project will demonstrate good correlation of MCT variables with initial failure in composites with complex multiscale reinforcement architectures. A Phase 2 project would refine the predictive capabilities, embo ...

  9. The Terminator Tape Low-Cost Deorbiting System

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: AF083198

    TUI proposes to develop a Terminator Tape deorbit module that will utilize both aerodynamic drag enhancement and passive electrodynamic drag to enable spacecraft to comply with post-mission orbital lifetime restrictions while minimizing cost, mass, volume, and footprint impacts to the spacecraft.  At the completion of the satellites mission, this module will deploy a several-hundred meter length ...
