  1. Design and Testing of a Water Based Fire Extinguishing System for On-Board Hydrogen Peroxide Fires

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: MDA04T004

    The Air Force has demonstrated that a water is capable of extinguishing comparable H2O2 oxidizer fires with 23 pounds of water vs 67 pounds of halon. Recent advances in sensor technology make it possible to detect an H2O2 leak prior to ignition, or to rapidly detect ignition in order to initiate fire protection system water flow. Recent findings by Streamline Automation also indicate that fire e ...

  2. Advanced Technology for Demilitarization of Plastic Bonded

    SBC: GRADIENT TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    Gradient Technology in conjunction with Professor M. Hillmyer of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Minnesota proposed to develop advanced technology to recover and convert the explosive and urethane binder found in plastic bonded explosives. This technology provides a unique reclamation, recovery, and reuse opportunity for dramatically reducing the disposal cost of technology munit ...

  4. Strategic Monitoring of Spacecraft Mechanical Parts Assemblies

    SBC: Sentient Science Corporation            Topic: MDA04T022

    Lubrication problems in rolling element bearings are the leading cause of failure in spacecraft momentum/reaction wheels, control moment gyros, gimbals, and similar applications. Condition monitoring technologies developed for terrestrial or aircraft applications are not adequate due to unique spacecraft conditions and the need to prevent rather than just detect damage. Sentient Corporation, in co ...

  5. Ultrahigh Quality GaN Films

    SBC: Silver Sky Technologies            Topic: N/A

    The feasibility of chemical beam epitaxy to grow ultrahigh quality GaN thin films will be developed. This process will allow the growth of GaN on high thermal conductivity substrates and enable the fabrication of precision superlattice structures. GaN will be grown using Ga effusion cells and ammonia-in an ultrahigh vacuum environment. This growth rate will be in the 1 micron per hour range at tem ...

  6. Low-cost, multi-spectral frequency augmenter for exo-atmospheric ballistic missile targets

    SBC: Synectic Research And Analysis, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T023

    A specialty coating, adaptable to existing and future modular MDA target systems and survivable in exo-atmospheric environments, may be achieved by combining contemporary indium tin oxide (ITO) appliqués onto a surface capable of achieving luminescence and hue levels found in adjacent backgrounds. This active coating will exploit known vulnerabilities found in interceptor infrared and visual scan ...

  7. Universal, Windows Based, High Speed Data Acquisition & Con

    SBC: SRS Technologies            Topic: N/A

    Current off-the-shelf Windows-based software/hardware data acquisition and control (DAC) systems are relatively slow, inflexible, and incapable of driving high speed, multi-channel systems. The proposed product will advance this technology through the development of an innovative, Windows-based Graphic User Interface (GUI) and required PC-resident module interfaced with a VXI chassis containing s ...

  8. Large Area Si Substrates for InP Based Electronics and Optical Device Manufacturing

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: BMDO02T00

    InP-based devices have applications encompassing the entire communication technology including wireless and fiber-optic telecommunications. It is especially suitable for very high frequency (up to 200GHz) operation. Therefore they are increasingly a critical component in all military missions. Their manufacturing costs are high in large part due the high cost of InP substrates, and their much smal ...

  9. Low Pressure Source for Mass-Selective, Diffusion Assisted Epitaxy

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF02T005

    Epitaxial growth of non-equilibrium thin-film structures, which have high quality and abrupt interfaces, is still the main challenge that limits many material systems for applications in semiconductor devices. In this STTR Phase II program, SVT Associates (SVTA) in collaboration with the University of Minnesota (UMN) will develop a new RF plasma light-mass ion source, compatible with the low-pres ...
