  1. INFLATABLE SMART MISSILE WING DESIGN EVALUATION

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

    THREE AREAS OF ACTIVE MISSILE WING RESEARCH WILL BE PURSUED. THE FIRST SECTION WILL EVALUATE THE MATERIALS TO BE USED IN THE INFLATABLE WING SPARS, RIBS, SKINS, PRESSURE BLADDERS AND ACTIVE ELEMENTS. SPECIMENS OF HIGH ORTHOGONALITY COMPOSITES (POLYURETHANE-GRAPHITE) WILL BE CONSTRUCTED ALONG WITH SAMPLE ISOTROPIC BLADDER MATERIALS (MYLAR OR TEFLON) SO THAT THEIR FUNDAMENTAL PROPERTIES CAN BE EVALU ...

  2. Advanced Low Cost Smart Missile Fin Technology Evaluation

    SBC: Barrett Aerospace Tech            Topic: N/A

    Three areas of research on low cost, reliable, folding aero surfaces will be conducted. First, different types of fin deployment and flight control actuators will be examined. These include conventional fin actuators, shape-memory-alloy, piezoelectric, magnetostrictive, and electrostrictive actuators. Second, different fin designs will be examined. These candidate designs are capable of flight con ...

  3. Reverse Ceometry X-Ray Source Volume CT

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    X-ray computed tomography (CT) is widely used in defense, aerospace, and industrial applications. CT provides flaw detection, density measurement, accurate dimensions, morphology, assembly verification, material property analysis, and other vauable information. However, a major limitation of CT has been the inspection time required for 100% coverage of an object, since a single slice through the o ...

  4. Silicon Nitride Fibers by Laser Chemical Vapor Deposition

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

    Laser chemical vapor deposition (LCVD) silicon nitride fiber growth is proposed, to make fibers which have the strength and oxidative stability required for advanced high temperature structural applications. This method has been demonstrated to yield continuous, high strength fibers of materials such as boron, silicon, and others, with diameters in the range 10-30 microns, tensile strengths up to ...

  6. AN ACT-BASED RANGE EXTENT SIMULATOR

    SBC: Electronic Decisions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NEW TYPE OF RANGE EXTENT SIMULATOR HAS BEEN MADE POSSIBLE THROUGH RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN THE EMERGING MICROELECTRONIC TECHNOLOGY OF ACOUSTIC CHARGE TRANSPORT (ACT). THIS TECHNOLOGY, DEVELOPED JOINTLY BY DARPA AND THE U.S. AIR FORCE, HAS ENABLED THE IMPLEMENTATION OF DIGITALLY PROGRAMMABLE ANALOG MULTITAP DELAY LINES. USED AS A PROGRAMMABLE RANGE EXTENT DEVICE, THE ACT DEVICE PROVIDES HUNDREDS OF ...

  7. A Radio-Silent Communications System

    SBC: Electronic Decisions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The present system of communication between KC-135/KC-10 tanker aircraft and receptacle-equipped receiver aircraft calls for communication based on aircraft lights. The Air Force requires a system for undetectable verbal communication between tanker and receiver from a range of 1500 meters to point blank. This document describes an approach for providing undetectable verbal tanker/receiver communi ...

  8. RE-USABLE INSTRUCTIONAL STRATEGY SEGMENT TEMPLATES FOR HIGHLY-EFFICIENT COMPUTER BASED TRAINING DEVELOPMENT AND DELIVERY

    SBC: GLOBAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    THE AIR FORCE HAS BEEN USING COMPUTER-BASED TRAINING FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS, YET IT STILL CONFRONTS MANY OF THE SAME BASIC PROBLEMS: SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS ARE USUALLY NOT INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGNERS, INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGNERS ARE USUALLY NOT PROGRAMMERS, CBT COURSEWARE IS EXPENSIVE TO DEVELOP (TYPICALLY 400 HOURS PER HOUR OF DELIVERABLE TRAINING), AND COURSEWARE DESIGN IS RARELY SUPPORTED BY VALIDATED ...

  10. Critical Technology Demonstration Plasma Focus Type MPD Thruster

    SBC: Rockford Technology            Topic: N/A

    This project involves a study with a gas-injected plasma focus facility intended to develop the database to design and build an optimized 1-MJ focus. The ultimate objective is to demonstrate the feasibility and attractiveness of this concept for very high specific impulse space propulsion. Studies include scaling experiments with an existing 10-kJ device and construction of a prototype 250-kJ modu ...
