  1. A Novel, High Precision, X-ray 3D Scanner for Non-Line-of-Sight Point Cloud Generation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF161013

    ABSTRACT: Casting parts with intricate internal surfaces are routinely used in many gun systems. It is important to inspect those casting parts to ensure the inner structures comply with the original design during the first article testing and production lot certification. Currently, inspections of inner surfaces are often done with borescopes, which is time consuming, labor intensive, and costly. ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Advanced Spectrally Selective Materials for Obscurant Applications

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: A13AT016

    Plasmonic metamaterials, composed of patterned metallic and dielectrics, can be engineered to have interesting optical properties that are attractive for a range of advanced obscurant applications. These particles are typically fabricated on planar surfaces, since patterning planar surfaces to achieve the desired effects is relatively straightforward.However, for planar geometries the particles op ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Carbon Foam Composite Tooling

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: MDA03049

    Touchstone Research Laboratory has developed a novel material, CFOAMr. The primary enabling carbon foam characteristic is that the Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) values are comparable to carbon fiber polymer matrix systems in manufacturing advanced composites. Other advantages of carbon foam-based tools are low mass, reduced energy, easy modifications, unmatched repair capabilities, and r ...

  8. 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 ...
