  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. 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 ...

  3. Method of Locating Unexploded Ordnance

    SBC: MAV6            Topic: AF083236

    UARS (Unexploded ordnance Asset RFID System) is a secure, active radio frequency identification (RFID) system that when equipped to munitions provides a method for underground geolocation in the event that munitions do not explode. Additionally UARS provides a method for authenticated wireless inventory of munitions in storage. UARS is comprised of rugged, long-life, queriable RFID tags that ar ...

  4. Space and Operational Environmental Protection for Thin Multijunction Solar Cells

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: AF093092

    The recent development of colorless, transparent polyimides provides a break-out solution for the operational and environmental protection of thin multijunction solar cells. The incorporation of polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes into the polyimide backbone renders these systems radiation hard toward proton, electron and atomic oxygen degradation. The POSS polyimides also exhibit 5x improved im ...

  5. Ultra Low Power Electronics for Autonomous Micro-Sensor Applications

    SBC: CAMGIAN MICROSYSTEMS CORP            Topic: AF093159

    This program aims to develop an ultra low power System-on-a-Chip (SoC) technology that will enable >10x improvements in size and endurance over current generation wireless micro-sensor networks. This will be achieved through the integration of advanced circuit and architectural design methods targeted to improve wireless micro-sensor node performance in four critical performance parameters: (1) ...
