  3. 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 ...

  6. Lightweight hardware design for regenerative fuel cells

    SBC: Distributed Energy Systems            Topic: MDA03100

    Practical use of a RFC for solar powered winged aircraft and lighter-than-air craft has been limited due to weight constraints and the paucity of test data from and practical experience with closed loop RFC hardware. The lightweight cells and endplates developed in Phase I of this program will be applied to the practical implementation of a closed-loop regenerative fuel cell. This RFC will build ...

  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 ...

  10. High-Average-Power Cryogenically-Cooled Diode-Pumped Yb:YAG Laser

    SBC: LE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: BMDO97016

    Department of Defense (DOD) interset in developing laser weaponary in the 1960's. Solid-State lasers have been a canidate technology from the earliest time, but for various reasons, this technology has not been developed to a point where they are scalable to high average power lasers. The development of diode laser pump arrays has improved efficiency, but at a considerable increase in systems cost ...
