  1. Novel Manufacturing of Bimetallic Gun Barrels

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: A18090

    Gun barrels are subjected to wear and erosion from the hot propellant gases and high loads from the passage of projectiles.Sustained fire duration and rate of fire are largely limited by barrel thermal considerations, since the heat buildup in the barrel can cause rounds to fire prematurely (cook-off) or weaken the barrel and cause catastrophic failure. A cost effective solution of using a wear re ...

  2. Commercial Solutions for Weather Forecasting

    SBC: Nextgen Federal Systems LLC            Topic: AF182001

    Soil moisture is an important parameter for AF weather measurements and forecasting.It impacts Army operations (off-road mobility, land operations) and Intelligence Communitys knowledge (agriculture: social unrest).AF has classified soil moisture measurements and data as a DoD space-based environmental monitoring gap.If unmitigated, the lack of soil moisture data will diminish our asymmetric advan ...

  5. Feasibility Test of Rotating Detonation Rocket Engine Using Storable Hypergolic Bipropellants

    SBC: GHKN Engineering, LLC            Topic: AF182063

    Rotating Detonation Rocket Engines (RDRE) support continuous detonation (constant volume) combustion in an annulus rather than in the deflagration combustion chambers of conventional rockets. Supersonic detonation waves travel circumferentially in the detonation zone of the annulus at some fraction of the theoretical maximum Chapman-Jouguet velocity. RDREs are mechanically simple devices, virtuall ...

  6. Dactylus

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: AF182080

    Tethers Unlimited, Inc. (TUI) proposes to develop Dactylus, a spacecraft fixture and accompanying soft capture end-effector for TUIs KRAKEN robotic arm for on-orbit servicing (OOS) of small spacecraft. Dactylus will enable capture and berthing in future space systems by providing a standard unobtrusive (compact, low-profile, 1U footprint) fixture to be included on spacecraft in the 10-50kg range. ...

  7. KRAKEN-X Lightweight Space-Qualified Robotic Arm

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: AF182082

    Tethers Unlimited, Inc. (TUI) proposes to develop KRAKEN-X, a compact 7 degree of freedom (DOF) modularly configurable robotic manipulator as a payload for on-orbit servicing (OOS) missions. KRAKEN-X will be a space-qualified version of TUIs KRAKEN robotic manipulator, which is based on compact 2DOF series elastic actuator (SEA) modules and is currently being matured for use inside the Internation ...

  8. Low Cost, Agile Methods for Tooling for Manufacturing Composite Parts

    SBC: GLOBE MACHINE MANUFACTURING COMPANY            Topic: AF182099

    Due to the increasingly negative impact on DoD budgets and the critical need for future air platforms, the USAF has issued a mandate to significantly reduce the development and escalatingprocurement costs of Carbon Fiber Composites intensive air platforms.Traditional aerospace autoclave manufacturing processes, utilized to produce carbon fiber composite parts are limited to very slow cycle efficie ...

  9. Coupled Infusion-Cure Modeling Simulation for Low-Cost Composite Parts for Process Defects and Geometric Conformity

    SBC: Convergent Manufacturing Technologies US Inc.            Topic: AF182100

    With the increasing use of infusion methods for composite manufacturing, the need to improve part geometric and defect quality while reducing cycle times, cost, and risk is paramount. The use of simulation tools has become a key component in reducing the need for inefficient trial and error experimentation. Historically, flow simulations have been decoupled from cure and residual stress/deformatio ...

  10. Small-Pitch XSWIR APD LADAR Receivers

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF182107

    InGaAs-based extended short-wavelength infrared (XSWIR)-sensitive photodiodes and avalanche-photodiode (APD) detectors will be developed for use in laser rangefinders (LRFs), imagers, and small-pitch multifunction ladar receivers. Through a series of epitaxial growth campaigns, the cutoff wavelength of InGaAs detectors will be extended into the XSWIR while retaining the advantageous cost structure ...
