  1. Solid Freeform Fabrication of low cost, in situ, metallic foam components for high energy absorption applications

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In the phase I program, Advanced Ceramics Research, Inc. (ACR) fabricated in situ metallic foams by using a unique water-soluble polymer blend and ACR's Extrusion Freeform Fabrication (EFF) method. When the green parts were heated for binder burnout, thebinder was found to foam and create uniform closed, high-aspect ratio porosity. The freeform fabrication also could create open porosity ranging f ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF ADVANCED INSTRUMENTATION FOR DROP SIZE AND LIQUID WATER CONTENT MEASUREMENTS IN CLOUDS

    SBC: Aerometrics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DEVELOPMENT OF ADVANCED DIAGNOSTICS FOR THE DETERMINATION OF THE LIQUID WATER (LWC) FOR FOG AND CLOUDS IS PROPOSED. SUCH DATA ARE FUNDAMENTAL TO THE RESEARCH IN CLOUD PHYSICS, ACID PRECIPITATION, ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVE PROPAGATION, AND AIRCRAFT ICING. CURRENTLY, THE METHODOLOGIES FOR MEASURING LWC ARE TIME-CONSUMING, LACK VERSATILITY, AND LACK ACCURACY. UNDER THIS PROGRAM, THE RECENTLY DEVELOPED PHA ...

  6. Enhanced Hand-held Electromagnetic Induction Sensor for Landmine Detection

    SBC: AETC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Currently available handheld mine detectors are effective in detecting metal mines and pieces of metal used in the firing mechanisms of non-metallic mines. However, these detectors can have a very high false alarm rate due to an inability to discriminatetargets, particularly the types and shapes of small metal-firing mechanism parts, and they are not effective at localizing small metallic targets ...

  7. COMPONENTS FOR RECHARGEABLE AMBIENT TEMPERATURE HIGH ENERGY LITHIUM BATTERIES

    SBC: Altus Corp.            Topic: N/A

    RECHARGEABLE LITHIUM SYSTEMS TO BE OF BROAD MILITARY USE MUST OPERATE TO -40 DEG C YET STILL RETAIN GOOD AMBIENT TEMPERATURE CYCLE LIFE. LOW TEMPERATURE CELL PERFORMANCE IS AFFECTED BY THE SEPARATOR POROSITY, ELECTROLYTE CONCENTRATION, AND ANODIC FILMS. THIS INVESTIGATION EXPLORES THE IMPACT OF EACH FACTOR ON AMBIENT TEMPERATURE CYCLE LIFE AND LOW TEMPERATURE DISCHARGE PERFORMANCE USING THE RECHAR ...

  9. Innovative Materials for Lightweight Armor

    SBC: Anacapa Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase II objective is to develop web-based training that increases Army officers' critical thinking ability. The need for such training was confirmed by the results of Phase I where it was shown that (1) critical thinking (CT) skills are important toBattle Command success, (2) poor CT performance creates serious problems for Command/Control, and (3) military curriculum does not train CT skill ...
