  1. Pulsed FEEP Thruster With Adjustable ISP For Precision Propulsion

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: MDA04019

    AASC proposes to develop a pulsed field emisson electric propulsion system with adjustable specific impulse for microsatellites. A multiemitter liquid metal ion source array is paired with an innovative pulsing network that allows ion emission to be switched using pulses of a few hundred volts. A new automated system is proposed to ensure high effciency over a wide range of ISP. The phase I will d ...

  2. Advanced Neutron Source for Radiography & Tomography

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: A03015

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation proposes to design in Phase I a pulsed neutron source based on dense plasma focus (DPF) technology that is practical for thermal neutron radiography. A fully operational source will be fabricated in Phase II. The neutron production/pulse by available sources and the resultant thermal flux on target are estimated to be about five orders of magnitude below what i ...

  3. Service Life Extension of Machine Gun Barrels

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: SOCOM03009

    The purpose of this Phase-I is to demonstrate the feasibility of using Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation's Coaxial Energetic Deposition (CED) process to increase the life of gun barrels, specifically the Mk-46 and Mk-48 light-weight machine guns, by depositing a protective refractory metal coating to the inside of the barrel as a replacement for the chrome coatings that are presently used. The ...

  4. Off-Route Mine Detection

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: A03108

    This proposal seeks to gather a set of data and develop processing and classification algorithms that can be used to detect and identify side attack mines at standoff distances. Data will be collected with a distributed network of wideband radar sensors which is currently in development. Algorithm development will focus on detecting the material composition and resonant response of side attack m ...

  5. Structural Health Monitoring System for Rocket Motor Cases

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: MDA04041

    Filament wound fiber reinforced composite rocket motor cases are widely used on MDA missile systems. However, significant performance and behavior characteristics of the composite structure can be affected by degradation resulting from exposure to environmental conditions or damage resulting from handling conditions. Fueling of the rocket motor adds an additional complexity in that inspection of t ...

  6. Fatigue crack detection using built-in Sensor Cluster Network

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: A03071

    The performance and behavior characteristics of nearly all in-service structures can be affected by degradation resulting from sustained use as well as from exposure to severe environmental conditions. Condition awareness of structures in (near) real-time is therefore an important factor that can limit or extend their service life. Acellent Technologies proposes to develop an innovative one-of-a-k ...

  7. A Novel Self-sensing Local/Global Structural Health Monitoring System

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: A03147

    The objective of this proposed project is to develop dual E/M impedance and wave propagation based innovative structural health monitoring (SHM) system for application to composite structures for Army rotorcraft and unmanned air vehicle platforms. Composites can incur invisible damage from impacts, loading abrasion, operator abuse, or neglect that if unchecked may lead to lower structural reliabil ...

  8. Embedded control of an Active Structural Integrity Monitoring System using interlaced PZT and Thin-Film Transistors

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: SB042035

    In recent years, Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is increasingly being evaluated by the industry as a possible method to improve the safety and reliability of structures and thereby reduce their operational cost. However, the scalability and applicability of SHM systems for the monitoring of large structures is still a challenge. Sensors and actuators of a structural health monitoring system ca ...

  9. Advanced Computational Algorithms for Simulating Weapon-Target Interaction

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This STTR project will develop and validate a robust, scalable computational capability for the simulation of weapon-target interactions of interest to the Army. The proposed algorithm is based on the FLIP (Fluid Implicit Particle) - MPM (Material Point Method) - MFM (Multiphase Flow Method) approach and CartaBlanca nonlinear solver environment developed at Los Alamos National Laboratory. CartaB ...

  10. Real-Time Prognostic Health Management for Fault Tolerant Airborne Laser Systems

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project will develop a data driven prognostic fault tolerant smart weapon system concept for the Airborne Laser. A real-time prognostic health management (PHM) system will be developed to track the likelihood of future system or subsystem failures and initiate or indicate appropriate actions to maintain or optimize system performance. A library of predictive algorithms will be employed to tak ...
