  1. Novel Manufacturing of Bimetallic Gun Barrels

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: A18090

    Gun barrels are subjected to wear and erosion from the hot propellant gases and high loads from the passage of projectiles.Sustained fire duration and rate of fire are largely limited by barrel thermal considerations, since the heat buildup in the barrel can cause rounds to fire prematurely (cook-off) or weaken the barrel and cause catastrophic failure. A cost effective solution of using a wear re ...

  2. Commercial Solutions for Weather Forecasting

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF182001

    Accurate and timely weather information for situational awareness is critical to the success of Air Force missions.To date, space-borne sensors for weather forecasting primarily include visible, infrared, and microwave instruments.While visible and infrared sensors have reached a high level of maturity and performance, those operating in the microwave region of the electromagnetic spectrum continu ...

  4. Open Call for Innovative Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions

    SBC: Inductive Ventures, LLC            Topic: AF182005

    Normal aircraft braking is achieved through a process of reverse thrust and a system of hydraulically activated brakes located on the main wheels of the aircraft. These friction based systems offer limited performance benefits including reduced braking capabilities due to brake fade, thermal loading issues, and generally higher operational, maintenance, repair and overhaul costs over the life cycl ...

  6. Predictive Analytics for Optimal Repair Determination

    SBC: AIR LOGISTICS AND ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: AF182016

    United States Air Force Supply Chain Management (SCM) processes are based upon repairable parts demand, such as Shop Replaceable Units (SRU) and Circuit Card Assemblies (CCA), and not Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF). The rule of repair being 75% of the asset cost drives many assets to be repaired many times over the lifecycle of the item. Specifically, if the estimated repair cost is < 75% of the ...

  7. Feasibility Test of Rotating Detonation Rocket Engine Using Storable Hypergolic Bipropellants

    SBC: GHKN Engineering, LLC            Topic: AF182063

    Rotating Detonation Rocket Engines (RDRE) support continuous detonation (constant volume) combustion in an annulus rather than in the deflagration combustion chambers of conventional rockets. Supersonic detonation waves travel circumferentially in the detonation zone of the annulus at some fraction of the theoretical maximum Chapman-Jouguet velocity. RDREs are mechanically simple devices, virtuall ...

  8. Dactylus

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: AF182080

    Tethers Unlimited, Inc. (TUI) proposes to develop Dactylus, a spacecraft fixture and accompanying soft capture end-effector for TUIs KRAKEN robotic arm for on-orbit servicing (OOS) of small spacecraft. Dactylus will enable capture and berthing in future space systems by providing a standard unobtrusive (compact, low-profile, 1U footprint) fixture to be included on spacecraft in the 10-50kg range. ...
