  1. Micro Electro-mechanical Systems (MEMS) Safe & Arm for Rocket Motor Ignition

    SBC: Black Hills Nanosystems            Topic: MDA14022

    Ignition of rocket motors can be performed using low-volt firing components, but MIL-STD-1901A requires mechanical isolation for safety. While traditional safe & arm devices are available, they are relatively large and heavy. Recent progress in MEMS has developed miniature safe & arm devices for low-cost munitions such as 40MM grenade and airburst munitions. The Black Hills Nanosystems team has ...

  2. Cognitive Computing Application for Defense Contracting

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: AF151194

    ABSTRACT:The need for a natural language query capability for DoD regulations is identified. A technical solution based on artificial intelligence, cognitive computing, and natural language query technology is presented. In Phase I, various techniques will be investigated, and one or more solutions will be developed and tested. In Phase II, the down-selected technologies will be refined and built- ...

  3. POSS Nanochemical Technology for Radiation Hardened/Tolerant Systems

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: MDA04036

    ABSTRACT:Specialty elastomers, such as hydrogenated acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber (HNBR) and fluoroelastomer (FKM), are widely utilized as high performance seals in numerous aerospace vehicles and components. The elastomer sealing industry and its products are primarily based on a limited pool of feedstocks that were last advanced in the 1970's. Using current technology, elastomeric seals must b ...

  4. Affordability-driven, Microwave Curing for Reversible Bonding of Composites

    SBC: AEROTECH ENGINEERING & RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Fastening and joining technology has lagged behind the progress that has been made in other areas of composites for advanced air vehicles. Aerotech proposes the development of reversible polymeric adhesive bonding of composites using variable frequency microwave energy. With this method, composites are bonded using Poly Ether Ether Ketone (a high temperature thermoplastic) which is cured using v ...

  5. Electro-magnetic Flak for Cruise and Sea Skimming Missile Defense

    SBC: Applied Physical Electronics, L.C.            Topic: N/A

    The electromagnetic directed energy method (lasers, particle beams, and high power microwaves) of defending against missiles relies on generating a large amount of energy at the defense site, locating the target, and then transporting a large fraction of that energy to the target along a line of sight at the speed of light, to either destroy or destabilize the threat at as long range as possibl ...

  6. Applying ICARUS to Task Scheduling of the Air Force's Satellite Control Network

    SBC: Lawrence Applied Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a proof-of-concept system that implements an innovative methodology to diagnose and repair unknown satellite anomalies. Our system is based on a novel approach that integrates Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) with Utility Theory. The resulting system deals with unknown and missing information, and selects from a case base the plans or actions that will either fix the satellite or will ...
