  1. Instrumented Projectiles for Measuring Impact Forces to Characterize Ballistic Behavior of Fabrics and Composites

    SBC: LIUMAN TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: A11011

    In order to simulate the high velocity involved in ballistic impacts, at least up to some extent, laboratory used gas guns have been developed for material and structure testing. However, if the projectiles of the guns are not instrumented, they cannot provide information concerning impact mechanisms and damage processes during impacts. In an effort to improve their measuring capability, accelerom ...

  3. Innovative Structural Joining Concepts and Analysis Techniques

    SBC: Technova Corporation            Topic: AF06234

    A new structural joining technique is under development which employs a massive number of nanomaterials to achieve unique combinations of properties. One-dimensional nanomaterials (nanotubes, nanohelices, etc.) are anchored onto the opposite faces of the joint, and compatibly functionalized and engaged to form chemical bonds over their tremendous surface areas. The exceptional mechanical, physic ...

  4. Loc's Maximum Torque Quick Disconnect (MaxTorQD) Bradley Final Drive

    SBC: LOC PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: A11052

    Heavy add-on-armor installed on the Bradley Fighting Vehicle has degraded the vehicle"s mobility performance. Vehicle acceleration has declined to 80% of its original capability. To cost effectively modernize the mobility system, the final drive torque capacity must be significantly increased to maintain the current package space. Loc Performance Products, Inc., the Army"s provider of robust, ...

  5. Power Control Solution for Electrical System Improvements

    SBC: Global Embedded Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A11062

    The U.S. Army is seeking ways to improve mission capability of small Autonomous Unmanned Ground Systems (AUGS) power systems. The challenges with AUGS stem from proprietary nature of information and control of vehicle platforms. The proprietary information is important for robot manufacturers because of investments that are made to develop technology advantages over competition in their base rob ...

  6. Collision Avoidance for Micro Air Vehicles

    SBC: GUIDED SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06149

    It is proposed to further develop, flight demonstrate and transition a robust capability to autonomously detect and avoid obstacles typically encountered in flight by fixed or rotary wing micro air vehicles during low-altitude urban operations. There are two basic elements: (1) continually detecting and modeling the observable 3-D obstacle field in real-time, and (2) autonomously guiding the vehic ...

  7. Biologically Inspired Adhesive Microstructure

    SBC: Technova Corporation            Topic: AF06148

    Bio-inspired adhesives are under development which employ nanofibrillar structures for reliable and strong adhesion to various substrates. Applications toward micro air vehicle locomotion and in broader dry adhesives markets are emphasized. Biological adhesives (employed by gecko, spider, etc.) rely on multi-scale structures with nanofibrillar contact elements for effective adhesion to rough or ...

  9. Terminally Guided Robots and Robotic Applications in Confined Spaces

    SBC: Variation Reduction Solutions Inc            Topic: AF063C011

    Northrop Grumman Corporation (NGC) has a contract with Lockheed Martin to design, build, and produce the center fuselage section of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF F-35). There are three ducts which are the primary components of this section – the aft duct and two forward (inlet) ducts – right and left. Due to their length, curvature, and extremely tight constraints, the RH & LH inlet ducts pr ...
