  1. Fabrication of ZrC, HfC, TaC-based Fibrous Monolithic Ceramics for Rocket Propulsion Systems

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this program is to develop a low cost, flexible manufacturing method for the production of high temperature ceramic composites for rocket propulsion systems. The matrix materials selected for this program will be ZrC, HfC, and TaC. These-materials have good oxidation/corrosion and ablation resistance at elevated temperatures, but typically do not possess the thermal shock resistance an ...

  2. Titanium-Composite Body Armor Plates

    SBC: Advanced Protection Products,            Topic: N/A

    Advanced Protection Products, Inc. (APPI) will use advanced materials and processes to develop and certify Very Light Body Armor (VLBA) plates that are capable of defeating a variety of ballistic threats. The VLBA plates will be designed using a titanium allow based metallic-composite armor system to provide cost-effective, lightweight protection. Composite facing and backing materials will be u ...

  3. Co-Injection Resin Transfer Molding (CIRTM)

    SBC: ANHOLT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Shipboard structures employing composites typically use glass/vinyl ester (VE) manufactured with vacuum assisted RTM. This composite system offers reduced weight, no corrosion and improved signature performance but lacks the fire performance characteristics required for shipboard use. Phenolic resins (PH) provide outstanding fire performance but are difficult to process and offer lower structur ...

  4. Non-Fouling Ultrafiltration Membranes


    Ultrafiltration membranes offer great potential for compact, low cost clean-up of Navy surface ship graywater and blackwater. A major limitation of these ultrafiltration membranes is significant loss in flux with time associated with membrane fouling from proteins, polysaccharides, and other waste products. Backflushing can only be used to a limited extent. Chemical treatments are undesirous si ...

  5. Dynamic Firing Zone Imaging System

    SBC: Conceptual Systems & Software Inc            Topic: N/A

    An automated dynamic firing zone generation imaging system is needed to increase the effectiveness and utility of shipboard weapon systems. The current manual firing zone definition process is manpower intensive, complex, and cannot account for motion or changing topside configuration. These limitations greatly restrict the lethality and utility of shipboard weapons. This project proposes a dyna ...

  6. Unified HP/RT Development to Deployment Middleware Platform

    SBC: Conceptual Systems & Software Inc            Topic: N/A

    A significant problem for modern combat control system implementations is the incompatible development and deployment environments. These applications have specific performance requirements that until recently were only accurately obtained on the target installation system. However, for various logistic and economic reasons, the platforms utilized for advanced applications have typically been inc ...

  7. Deformable Training Edges and Smart Material Actuation for Active Control of Rotor Blades.

    SBC: DOMZALSKI MACHINE            Topic: N/A

    This project will determine the feasibility of smart material actuation of deformable trailing edges for active control of helicopter rotor blades. Several concepts will be developed and analyzed. Innovative structural designs and use of materials will be considered. The proposed designs will be analyzed to predict their performance levels, fatigue strength, and impact on blade weight and balan ...

  8. An Ultrahigh Speed Demultiplexer for Optical Communication Systems

    SBC: Elsicon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Elsicon Incorporated proposes to develop an optical demultiplexer appropriate for use in high bandwidth fiber-optic communication systems. The demultiplexer will be capable of reducing an optical input bit stream with an aggregate bit rate of greater than 100 Gbits/sec down to a 1 Gbit/sec baseband rate. Therefore, by distributing the full serial data stream among an array of these devices, ultrah ...

  9. Alternative Substrates for Materials Integration

    SBC: EPITRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The recent demonstration of twist bonded GaAs substrates offers the potential to develop universally compliant substrates upon which almost any III-V or related semiconductor can be grown without lattice mismatch induced defect formation. Compliant substrates would rapidly expand and improve a number of device applications, such as Sb-based detectors and a wide range of InGaAlAsP devices, which ar ...

  10. Improved Performance Double Heterostructure InGaP Heterojunction Bipolar Transistors

    SBC: EPITRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    High frequency systems designers are now employing III-V heterostructure bipolar transistors (HBTs) in low power portable applications as well as in high power systems. Although most devices have used AlGaAs as the wide bandgap emitter, AlGaAs-based devices have had reliability problems at high current densities and high device operation temperatures. Advantages in device performance and fabrica ...
