  1. RECYCLING PROCESS FOR AIRCRAFT PLASTICS AND COMPOSITES

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An effective process for recycling plastics and composites used in aircraft does not currently exist. As a result, scrap and used materials are disposed of in landfills. A chemical recycling process is proposed that will allow the components of these waste materials to be converted to valuable hydrocarbons, fillers and fibers that can then be reused or sold. The proposed chemical recycling process ...

  2. Novel Recycling Process for Aircraft Transparencies

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A novel tertiary recycling process is proposed for investigation as an economical means for reclaiming scrap aircraft transparency materials. Early development work has shown that this process can convert a wide variety of polymers and composites into low molecular weight hydrocarbons at temperatures below 200 C. The hydrocarbons produced can then be reused as chemicals, fuels, or monomers. Met ...

  4. Graphical Vulnerability Assessments

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal discusses the development of a Graphical Vulnerability Assessment (GVA) system for setting up, executing, and visualizing the results of vulnerability assessments. The vulnerability assessments might be for hardened concrete targets, mobile ground targets, or mobile air targets. This graphical tool will allow users to link together modules from various vulnerability analyses by using ...

  5. Automated Fragment Recovery and Quick Look Reporting for Warhead Arena Testing

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A new automated methodology for collecting, analyzing, and reporting fragment data from warhead arena tests is proposed. While the Air Force has digitally recorded average fragment velocity data using electronic velocity screens since 1971, fragment mass distributions are still determined using a time consuming and labor intensive process of manually locating, cleaning, and weighing fragments. In ...

  6. Implementation of Exaggerated Actuation and Bearing-Free Rotational Mobility in Smart Hinges

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Under the proposed research a single degree-of-freedom hinge will be developed that exaggerates actuation by either a piezoceramic or a shape-memory alloy. The proposed hinge is a marriage of two concepts, one providing exaggerated excitation and the other providing bearing-free rotational mobility. The first concept translates the relatively small motion achievable with smart materials (shape-m ...

  7. Optimal Decision Analysis Tool for Selecting Life Extension Options

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ARA along with its team member Ryan International Airlines proposes to develop an innovative stochastic decision tool for selecting among the various life extensions options for aging aircraft. The methodology is based on a genetic algorithm search that can efficiently choose among various alternatives. The search algorithm retrieves input from a relational database designed to store and manage ...

  9. A Neural Network-based Device for Long Range, Local Area EO Weather Forecasts

    SBC: APPLIED SCIENCES LABORATORY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An Adaptive Resonance Theory (ART) artificial neural network (ANN) Forecast Model for the Weather Impact Decision Aid (WIDA) is described. The Air Force has been involved in the development of electro-optical/infrared tactical decision aids (EOTDA) since the mid-1970s and has achieved significant operational success. However, their performance degrades beyond 24 hours due to lack of accurate long ...

  10. ACQUISITION, CONTROL, AND TELEMETRY SYSTEM (ACTS)

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The Balloon Electronics Control System (BECS) currently used by the Phillips Laboratory is based on custom electronics. Although the BECS performs the necessary balloon control functions reliably, it is not easily reconfigured when system requirements change. These modifications can affect both the cost and schedule of an experiment. In addition, it offers only limited support for onboard experime ...
