  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. Optimized Information Display for Tactical Air Control Party


    ABSTRACT:Tactical Air Control Parties (TACP) and Joint Terminal Air Controller (JTAC) deploy with not only a significant amount of gear, but also a large work load in order to manage all of their responsibilities. As the battlefield becomes more digitized, it is forcing TACPs/JTACs (which we will refer to as just TACPs for brevity in the document) to deal with more information than their current s ...

  3. Improved Performance of Composite Tanks in Cryogenic Storage Applications

    SBC: Advintec, Llc            Topic: N/A

    "The overall objective of the proposal is to improve performance of polymer matrix composite materials for cryogenic tank applications. The specific objectives of the program are:1. Determine the effect of cryogenic exposure on PMCs, particularly on the interphase region.2. Examine failed composite cryogenic tanks at the nanometer-level and higher to understand failure mechanisms.3. Develop ...

  4. High Suction Specific Speed Inducers for Cryogenic Upper Stage Engines

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    "Pump inducer suction performance is directly linked to turbopump rotational speed and weight. It has become standard practice to use boost pumps to provide higher inlet pressure to main turbopumps. This allows for higher speed, lower weight, and moreefficient turbopumps. Propellant tank pressure is also minimized. However, the boost pumps add to the weight and complexity of the propellant ma ...

  5. High-Efficiency Amplifiers with Discretely Variable Output Power

    SBC: Green Mountain Radio Research Company            Topic: N/A

    "Modern phased-array transmitters employ a separate power-amplifier (PA) module for each antenna element. The transmitted signals have time-varying envelopes and peak amplitudes that vary over a large dynamic range, resulting in inefficient amplificationby the conventional linear PAs that are presently in use. A number of techniques for efficiency improvement have been developed recently, but ma ...

  6. Aircrew Bladder Relief Capability

    SBC: Omni Measurement Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Omni Measurement Systems, Inc. of South Burlington, Vermont has designed a comfortable, automated bladder relief system for female and male aircrew members flying long-distance missions in aircrafts without toilet facilities. The system does not use anytype of catheter, is compact and can be worn so that it is not visible to others. The pilot can chose between two hands-free and odor-free methods ...

  7. Large 10Gb/s Bandwidth electrical connector technology and process of producing same.

    SBC: Tolmie, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A new technology for the manufacture of 10Gb/s electrical/electronic connectors. The new manufacturing process has the potential of producing a low cost, large bandwidth,high dentsity of contacts in a robust and thermally tolerant package. The connector isMetallic and is extruded in a coniguous housing having multiple cavities for a plurality of contacts. Thus the rectangular connector is survivab ...
