  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. High Temperature POSS Resins for Filament Wound Composites

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: AF02193

    The successful Phase I effort to incorporate POSS into BMI resin resulted in substantial Tg and HDT improvements while reducing the cure temperature. The proposed Phase II effort will optimize the formulaiton while characterizing the full scope and range of enhancement in filament wound composite structures.

  5. POSS Nanochemical Technology for Radiation Hardened/Tolerant Systems

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: MDA04036

    Hybrid Plastics proposes to develop a low cost, and versatile method for shielding commercial, military, and stacked microelectronics against the deleterious effects of space radiation. The technical approach utilizes metallized nanoscopic polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes as conformal coatings or potting agents. Such coatings would permit spacecraft designers to use commercial ICs in applicat ...

  6. Radiation-Resistant Nanoscopically Enhanced Solar Cell Coverglass

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: AF05022

    Hybrid Plastics proposes to develop a low cost, and versatile method for shielding commercial and military solar cells from damage against proton and electron radiation. The technical approach utilizes metallized nanoscopic polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes as conformal coatings on coverglass and on solar cell surfaces. Such coatings would permit spacecraft designers to increase duty cycles wh ...

  7. Development of Radiation Hard 4H-SiC Power Switches and Rectifiers for Circuit Applications In Harsh Environments

    SBC: SemiSouth Laboratories            Topic: MDA04T019

    ABSTRACT: Several new high-power, long range radar systems are under development for near-term upgrades or fielding by MDA, Navy, and Marine Corps, which will use High Voltage GaAs or new WBG Semiconductors (SiC, GaN) in the transmitter/receiver. These systems will require compact, efficient, temperature tolerant power supplies and converters typically requiring a 600 V class of power devices. ...

  8. Robust Solid Lubricant Coating for Gears of Cryogenic Fuel Turbopumps

    SBC: SURFACES RESEARCH & APPLICATIONS, INCO            Topic: AF05131

    Surfaces Research proposes development of a highly durable solid lubricant coating to eliminate wear and vibration problems in liquid hydrogen turbopump gears. The cryogenic turbopumps are used in rocket engines for Air Force expendable launch vehicles. Our new coating will exceed the cryopump manufacturer's goal life of twice that of the current coating. Our sound, novel approach uses three str ...
