  1. High Performance Actuators for Solid Propulsion Control Systems

    SBC: Electric Drivetrain Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA16010

    The Missile Defense Agency seek solid propellant, propulsion control systems with longer operation times, increased performance, and reduced size, weight, power, and cost.Solid propellant exhaust gases are commonly 2,000-4,000F.Proportionally controlled actuators that are capable of enduring higher temperatures while aiming to maintain performance and/or reduce SWaP-C will improve the robustness o ...

  2. High Performance Actuators for Solid Propulsion Control Systems

    SBC: Solid State Ceramics, Inc.            Topic: MDA16010

    Phase II will exit with a new and substantially test-rig validated new solid-state integrated propulsion control valve actuator design for Divert and Attitude Control Systems (DACS) that present a unique engineering challenge in that they need to fit in tight volumes, require very high performance and are subject to extreme temperatures that fills the void of providing a highly engineered but simp ...

  3. Development of Lyocell-Based High Temperature Composites for Structural Insulator Applications

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: MDA16020

    Materials Research & Design, Inc. submits this Phase II SBIR proposal to address Rayon Replacement for High Temperature Materials. The proposed program seek to demonstrate repeatable processability of low conductivity, low modulus, high strength, Lyocell-Based materials that can provide sustained, domestic replacement for rayon based structural insulators. MR&D will manage the program and perform ...

  4. Metallized Ceramic-Based Structural Insulators

    SBC: Plus Designs, Inc.            Topic: MDA16020

    An ideal structural insulator will not outgas, will not change significantly with respect to material properties and geometry during elevated temperature exposure, will have the necessary thermal conductivity/diffusivity for insulating purposes, and will have the necessary stiffness to provide proper support.Metallized ceramic-based structural insulators are anticipated to offer improved performan ...

  5. Miniaturized Programmable Signal Generator for Beacon Applications

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: MDA16023

    Todays newer weapons systems are being designed with small platforms which may not have the space or power delivery systems necessary to support a full complement of electronics desired, such as electronic beacon systems.However, certain platform types, such as the missile defense system (MDS), have an inherent need to have these types of beacon system present to support mission requirements.A nee ...

  7. Shallow Water Bathymetric Survey Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 829

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Ship groundings can cause sever environmental damage to the delicate ecosystems such as coral reefs, seagrass beds, and beaches. At present, survey work is performed by hand – a method that is inefficient and difficult to perform reliably. Improved bottom survey tools are clearly needed to evaluate the extent and type of damage and assist in determining remediation efforts. ...

  8. Autonomous Meteorological Measurement System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 8212

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: NOAA and the National Weather Service maintain an immense network of automated maritime, surface, and upper-air observing stations throughout the world and at great expense. These automated stations provide regularly updated data for both short-term weather prediction and long-term climate models. Maritime and surface observations occur as frequently as every 10 to 20 minutes, ...

  9. Development of “Permit Wizard” Software for AssistedPermit Application Completion

    SBC: TOTAL QUALITY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to research the technical feasibility of designing a software tool “Permit Wizard” that will automate the process for aquamarine permit application submittal, review, approval/disapproval and issue (including collection of fees). Aquaculture producers are currently faced with slow, complex, and often confusing permitting processes that must ...

  10. Clean Energy Source to Power NOAA Long-termObservation and Monitoring Networks

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 8211

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Creare proposes to develop a self-sustained small-scale power conversion system to power NOAA’s weather monitoring network stations located in harsh uninhabited locations. Our miniature heat engine will take advantage of the existing year-round thermal gradients found between water and air in Arctic regions. Our baseline approach is the development of a compact Turbo-Rankine ...
