  1. Structural Health Monitoring System for Rocket Motor Cases

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: MDA04041

    Composite rocket motor cases are subject to a variety of external environmental and loading conditions from the time-of-manufacturing till usage. These conditions can significantly impact the performance and behavior characteristics of the composite motorcase structure. Fueling of the rocket motor adds an additional complexity in that inspection of the interior becomes impossible while creating th ...

  4. High-Strength Carbide-Based Fibrous Monolith Materials for Solid Rocket Nozzles

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: MDA04T024

    Over the past 10 to 15 years, there has been a move towards the integration of ¡§advanced¡¨ materials with improved performance in hostile propulsion environments. Tantalum carbide is stable to very high temperatures (~3900„aC) under non-oxidizing conditions, but is relatively soft and erodes appreciably with aluminized propellants. In an effort to improve the strength and erosion resista ...

  6. Low Temperature Sintered Conductive Adhesives for use in the Packaging of High-Power Electronics

    SBC: Aguila Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA03052

    There is a need for improvement in the performance of thermally and electrically conductive polymeric adhesives used in electronic packaging. In particular, there are few polymeric materi-als that are suitable for replacing eutectic solder bonding in electronic devices used in high-temperature environments, such as the operating environment of high power wide bandgap elec-tronic devices. The US Na ...

  7. Boost Phase Guidance and Control Using Motion Energy

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SENSORS CORP.            Topic: MDA02017

    During Phase I, Computational Sensors Corporation (CSC) developed a motion-based prototype algorithm for detecting missile maneuvers from the interceptor perspective using simulated inputs. One effective way to counter an anti-missile interceptor is simply to include one or more maneuvers during ascent. Development of a capability for reacting as quickly as possible to target maneuvers will provi ...
