  1. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    In the current SBIR program, AlphaSense aimed at developing a novel, handheld, non-destructive sensor to evaluate the integrity of Naval Advanced Amorphous Coatings (NAAC) in real time. In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the cavity perturbation technique to detect different types of defects present in thermal-sprayed testing coupons. Specifically, we optimized the sensor probe des ...

  6. Advanced Rocket Propulsion Technologies

    SBC: FMW COMPOSITE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF04199

    The future propulsion requirements of the USAF will require substantial performance improvements, especially stage mass fraction as defined by the Phase III IHPRPT goals. The development and transition to production of titanium matrix composites (TMC) offer the potential of significant mass fraction gains for liquid engines. This program proposes the substitution of TMC into the impeller, which ...

  7. Aspect-Oriented Secure Fuselet Runtime Environment

    SBC: ORIELLE, LLC            Topic: MDA04044

    We propose to develop a secure runtime environment for fuselet-based missile targeting and threat analysis built on a foundation of aspect-oriented secure web services. Aspect-oriented techniques enable the modularization of crosscutting concerns such as remote access, security, transactions, and monitoring. We will compose aspect-oriented instrumentation with distributed object technologies in a ...

  9. Carbon Foam Innovative Processing

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: MDA02021b

    Touchstone Research Laboratory is currently producing carbon foam in its pilot production facility. In the Phase I feasibility study, Touchstone identified opportunities to reduce the production cycle by combining manufacturing processes. The results indicated that a batch foaming process was optimum and the heat treatment step should be converted to a continuous process. This would lead to a s ...
