  1. Multi-functional nanocomposite materials with high-temperature polymer resin matrice

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: AF03T018

    The overall objective of the proposed Phase II STTR program is to continue optimization of properties already obtained during Phase I which established the feasibility of concept to multi-functionality for BMI polymer matrix composites along with structural capability. Throughout this 2-year effort, it is proposed to seek optimization of the composite properties. The goal is develop and demonstrat ...

  2. Processing Methodology for Reactives Enhanced Munitions

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: AF04172

    ACR will develop strong tailored composite polymer formulations capable of energy release as needed for a range of structural applications. Materials developed under the Phase I effort (Fibrous Monolith formulations of iron oxide/aluminum, bismuth oxide/aluminum, Teflon/aluminum) will be used as a foundation with specific strength and density targets for intended applications. The initial effor ...

  3. Lightweight sandwich composites for improved thermal and acoustic performance

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N03157

    In the phase I SBIR program, Advanced Ceramics Research, Inc. (ACR), along with its partner developed an innovative manufacturing process for thermal and acoustic shielding sandwich composite components for the EFV. These panels met all thermal and weight requirements, were affordable and were close to the acoustic requirements outlined in the phase I solicitation. ACR is confident that with sui ...

  4. Define/Demonstrate Non-hazardous or Less Hazardous Beryllium (Be) Material for Defense Applications

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: MDA04059

    ACR will develop a beryllium replacement material suitable for use in the systems manufactured by Raytheon Missile Systems, Tucson, AZ. The work will include the identification of suitable materials such as metal alloys of magnesium or other materials as seen fit based on the required material properties of stiffness, density, strength and machinability. The processing knowledge gained during th ...

  5. High-Strength Carbide-Based Fibrous Monolith Materials for Solid Rocket Nozzles

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: MDA04T024

    Over the past 10 to 15 years, there has been a move towards the integration of ¡§advanced¡¨ materials with improved performance in hostile propulsion environments. Tantalum carbide is stable to very high temperatures (~3900„aC) under non-oxidizing conditions, but is relatively soft and erodes appreciably with aluminized propellants. In an effort to improve the strength and erosion resista ...

  6. Technologies to Defeat Improvised Explosive Devices (IED’s)

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N04901

    The objective of the proposed development effort is to utilize a sensor which detects IEDs and detonation devices. The sensor detector is mounted on a small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) such that detection can be performed from a autonomous airborne platform ahead of a convoy or patrol, thereby reducing the risk of loss of life. A positive identification was achieved from a UAV approximately 75 ...

  7. Sonobuoy Launched small UAV system

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N04T004

    The Navy and other government-sponsored agencies use the P-3 aircraft. Due to the diverse missions and limited number of P-3 aircraft, the most economical and expeditious way to enhance operations and assure crew safety would be to incorporate low-cost expendable tactical unmanned air vehicles (UAV's). If UAVs were incorporated into each P-3, a load-out of sonobuoy launched UAV's with interchange ...

  8. Threat Recognition and Early Warning Method

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N04253

    The overall objective of this development effort will be to establish a "local" UAV surveillance platform and early warning system for a wide range of designated installations, bases and facilities. The system would provide around the clock ground surveillance and condition assessment, together with immediate real time response to any observed threat such as the launch of a mortar or missile. Af ...

  9. Hyperspectral Classification for Muzzle Flash Recognition from the Silver Fox UAV

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N04253

    One possible approach to discriminate between different projectiles and weapons is to analyze the muzzle flash spectra which is produced when they are fired. While the IR spectrum contains thermal information about the flame the UV portion of the spectrum contains information about the gas chemistry that is usually not affected by reflections - leading to a high signal to noise ratio. The prop ...

  10. Shark-Inspired Underwater Sensors for Homing and Imaging

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N05003

    This proposal in based upon the belief that the naturally occurring acute electrical sensitivity of marine sharks and rays used to navigate, orient, and detect food and objects can be replicated by man and possibly used for future underwater imaging and sensing capabilities. If developed, such a capability might allow for the detection of small, hostile submarines entering a seawater inlet, harbo ...
