  1. Weapon System Intermittent Fault Detection

    SBC: Livewire Innovation, Inc.            Topic: AF083113

    ABSTRACT: Weapon systems or other high value electrical systems within the US military are all subject to wiring faults and degradation. Additionally, weapon systems are kept in service longer because of shrinking defense budgets, further compounding the risks associated with wiring systems. The ability to detect and provide the location of existing wiring problems or pending failures is critic ...

  3. Advanced Dielectric Insulation Techniques for High Voltage Pulsed Power Systems

    SBC: Applied Energetics, Inc.            Topic: AF093014

    ABSTRACT: Current state-of-the-art, high voltage, pulsed power systems designed to drive high power microwave (HPM) sources utilize Marx generator designs. The high voltage insulation of these devices has been traditionally based on either high dielectric strength oil or sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). The dielectric strength of the insulating medium determines the minimum size of the tank enclosure ...

  9. Space Qualified, Low Cost Compact Disk Data Storage/Retrieval System

    SBC: AIREX CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Recent advances in electromagnetic technology clearly lend themselves to application in space-based data storage/retrieval systems. Commercial data storage systems provide low cost, long-life operation and strong logic/control systems, but employmechanical bearings that limit their resistance to shock and life expectancy. A similar system ruggedized for space via integrated magnetic motor-bearing ...
