  1. Composite Tank Design to Limit Fatigue-Induced Microcracking


    In this Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program, Composite Technology Development, Inc. (CTD) and our Research Institution partner North Dakota State University (NDSU) propose to implement a integrated systematic approach to designingreusable composite tanks for ABL applications. The primary goals of the Phase I program include understanding the mechanism of microcrack growth in ...

  2. The Use of Boron Nitride for Improved Cold-Cathode Electron Field Emission Technology

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: N/A

    Low-power Hall thrusters offer potentially important advantages for certain military applications but issues of lifetime and efficiency degradation at lower powers are issues hindering its utilization. A factor impacting efficiency is that thestate-of-the-art techniques for electron generation used for neutralization (such as hollow cathodes operating on the same propellant as the thruster) do no ...

  4. Develop and/or Improve Optical Coating Processes for Military Mirrors

    SBC: FLEXIAL CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Develop a titanium, welded metal bellows extendable sunshade to deploy over seeker system optics in kinetic kill vehicles and other military missile systems that employ optical tracking. One object of the sunshade is to offer an alternative technology tohelp improve the durability of optical coatings by minimizing thermal gradients on the coatings as would be generated by free airflow across the ...

  5. Next Generation Hall effect Thruster Concepts

    SBC: Kaufman & Robinson, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this proposal is the research and development of low power (about 100 W) close-drift thruster with improved magnetic field. The patented design of the magnetic field makes possible to dramatically reduce the permissible size of aconventional stationary plasma thruster (SPT) that is limited by magnetic saturation of the inner magnetic path. The thruster with our improved magnetic f ...

  6. The Software Therapist: Usability Problem Diagnosis through Latent Semantic Analysis


    Knowledge Analysis Technologies (K-A-T) and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) will partner to fulfill this Research and Development effort. We propose an unprecedented suite of Usability Engineering software tools to bebuilt upon the conceptual foundation of Virginia Tech's User Action Framework (UAF). We will use K-A-T's proprietary Latent Semantic Analysis (LS ...

  7. Inertial Compensated Crystal Oscillator for High A/J UTC GPS/Inertial Operation

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: N/A

    Under previous research efforts, we have developed a high A/J UTC approach, termed FCTRACK, which optimally processes all of the signal codes broadcast by the GPS satellites. Since all of the codes broadcast by the same satellite are coherent in phase,this approach allows the combined signal power of all of the GPS codes to be leveraged for anti-jam protection. By applying data-aiding, it is als ...

  8. PIBO Film Dielectric for Advanced Microelectronics Packaging

    SBC: OXAZOGEN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is the result of the successful completion of a Phase I program of the same name (contract F33615-01-M-2174). The purpose of this program is to extend that research and development program into the birth of an enabling new technology andproduct.Polyimidebenzoxazole (PIBO) film is a new, self-reinforced, low dielectric constant, low CTE (coefficient of thermal expansion) film with a ...

  9. Conductive Polymer Elastomers as Gap Treatment Material for Aircraft

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force maintains a fleet of aircraft that depend on low-observability to successfully carry out their missions. This low-observability depends on a continuity of electrical conductivity at the outer mold line of the aircraft, and thus the panelseams and gaps must be filled with a conducting material. Currently, metal-filled elastomers or resins are used, but these materials suffer from po ...

  10. Fluidized Bed Reactor for SOG


    Most SOG processes for the COIL exceed the carrying capacity of the ABL airframe. The key to SOG weight savings is to recycle and recharge an exchange media after each laser discharge. A recharge process reduces the weight of the exchange media by 80%compared to loading charged BHP media for an entire flight.All SOG recharging excites the oxygen by energy radiation. This work will develop fluidiz ...
