  2. Process Optimization of Needled Carbon/ silica carbide (C/SiC) Structural Insulators

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: MDA13025

    Some missiles employ a throttleable divert and altitude control system (TDACS) to maneuver the kill vehicle to the target. Hot gas valve components in the TDACS must survive long burn times at high pressures and high temperatures. Recently the team of Materials Research & Design (MR&D), Allcomp, and Southern Research Institute (SoRI) has developed a needled C/SiC composite that exhibits strength ...

  3. Gallium Arsenide (GaAs)- Superlattice Light Emitting Diode Arrays (SLEDS)

    SBC: Chip Design Systems LLC            Topic: MDA13017

    We propose to monolithically integrate an infrared light emitting diode (IRLED) array on the backside of a GaAs substrate whose frontside contains an array of driver circuits. We will develop smaller GaAs substrate via technology to enable smaller pixel pitch and realize a large-scale GaAs-SLEDS read-in integrated circuit (RIIC). Our team consists of experts in IRLED fabrication, RIIC design, Ga ...

  4. IM Modeling/Simulation Tool for KEI Dynamic/Thermal Loads Associated with Stage Separation

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: MDA06041

    Intense dynamic and thermal loads will occur during stage-separation events that are of major concern from both operational and safety viewpoints. The insensitive-munitions (IM) stimuli and thermal/dynamic response associated with such events has received very little attention, yet this is of major concern for the KEI vehicle undergoing Stage 1 to Stage 2 separation. The KEI event is at lower alti ...

  5. Optimal Sensor Scheduling for Ballistic Missile Defense

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA06009

    Our Phase I research involved the development of an innovative sensor scheduling algorithm in support of Ballistic Missile Defense. This algorithm schedules multiple diverse and distributed sensors to perform time-critical tasks relating to multiple moving targets; specifically, to detect, classify, localize, track, support the interception of, and conduct BDA for ballistic missiles throughout t ...

  7. High Performance 2:17 Permanent Magnets for Traveling Wave Tubes

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this effort is to develop high performance rare earth permanent magnets with essentially constant magnet properties over a wide temperature range of -50 to 350oC, and which can survive temperatures as high as 500oC, for TWT applications.The combination of a light rare earth (Sm) with heavy rare earths (Gd, Er, and Ho) provides very low temperature coefficients of magnetic properti ...

  8. LOW COST MODULE DEVELOPMENT (kTC k016)

    SBC: k Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    kTC's high performance thermal core technology offers the potential of significant cost savings by allowing the use of low cost commercial components without the need for liquid flow through thermal cores. kTC's encapsulated APG thermal core is a highconductivity (>1000WmL) macrocomposite comprised of annealed pyrolytic graphite (AG) encapsulated within an aluminum sheet. In Phase I, k Technolog ...

  9. Graphite Foam Core Heat Exchangers for Thermal Management

    SBC: Materials Resources International            Topic: N/A

    MRi proposes to further the demonstration of graphite foam heat exchanger fabrication technology utilizing its innovative active solder joining alloys and processes (S-Bond). The proposed Phase II will build on the success of the Phase I feasibilitystudies that showed the active solder joined Gr-foam core heat exchangers to have over 15 x the heat transfer capacity as aluminum finned heat exchang ...

  10. Novel Heterodimensional Sensors

    SBC: PHOTONICS LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The sensing element is the heart of a sensor. A generic requirement for any sensor is that it only responds to the particular stimulus since all other stimuli are considered noise. The basic physics of the operation of a sensor thus determines the limitof its sensitivity. Here we build upon a family of proposed light sensors in which sensor noise is substantially reduced by altering the nature ...
