  2. Innovative Manufacturing Process Improvements-CVD TiC Coating on Precision Bearing Balls

    SBC: BRYCOAT, INC.            Topic: MDA04035

    The United States faces the imminent loss of a technology critical to national security. The guidance systems of many key missile defense systems rely on Coatings of Titanium Carbide (TiC) applied by a novel Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) Process on the balls of precision ball bearings. This unique process produces a ball with performance characteristics unmatched by any material technology tes ...

  7. In-situ Cathode Formation for Thermal Batteries

    SBC: ENSER Corporation, The            Topic: MDA03057

    The goal of this research is to significantly increase the specific and volumetric energy densities of thermal batteries by combining the functions of the cathode and heat pellet. The proposed method of achieving this is to form the cathode active material within the heat pellet by the pyrotechnic reaction between the metal powder and the alkali perchlorate. In order to accomplish this `in-situ ca ...
