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


    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 ...

  2. Optimal Sensor Scheduling for Ballistic Missile Defense


    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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Novel Heterodimensional Sensors


    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 ...

  8. Structural Monitoring Via Embedded Magnetic Wires

    SBC: Sensortex            Topic: N/A

    Stress monitoring in composite materials is a difficult but necessary endeavor. It is required for testing to compare measurements with modeling predictions as well as to monitor flexing and vibration under load. Presently, there are only a limitednumber f methods to measure strains that are suitable for embedding in a composite material and all are either expensive or complex. This proposal is ...
