  1. Thermally Stable Machine Gun Barrel

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Processes            Topic: N091004

    The objective of this SBIR Phase I project is to produce a tough protective nanocomposite ceramic lining for machine gun barrels to reduce weapon system acquisition costs through service life extension, reduction in parts consumption & failure rates, reduction in weapon weight, reduced corrosion, and reduction in barrel heat load. We postulates that incorporation of a ceramic radiant barrier linin ...

  2. Development of Improved High Strength, High Conductivity Refractory Materials for Rail Gun Launchers


    APS has assembled a world class team to address problems associated with rail gun launcher operation. APS has combined its unique processing experience with IAT's railgun design, testing and characterization experience to develop materials to improve rail gun performance. Phase I will be devoted to fabrication and testing of various samples in rail gun conditions. Phase II will focus on the manufa ...

  3. Developing a Detailed Chemical Kinetic Model for C-SiC-SiO2-Rubber Composite Materials Exposed to High Temperature, High Pressure, Oxidizing Environme

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N10AT005

    The objective of this proposed Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) effort is to develop an experimentally-validated, highly detailed chemical kinetic reference model of surface chemistry for C-SiC-SiO2 rubber composite materials exposed to high temperature, high pressure, oxidizing environments. This reference model will then be reduced into simplified reduced-order models that could be easi ...

  4. Compact and/or MEMS-based gas-sampling sensors for analysis of battery offgassing

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N101056

    Agiltron proposes to develop an integrated stand-alone multiple gas sensor for small spaces suitable for detection of gases emitted from batteries. The proposed composite gas sensor is based on multiplexed wavelength modulated tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS). Using multiple diode lasers that are tuned to the near infrared absorption band of the gases, the sensor will accurately ...

  5. Infrared-Transparent, Millimeter-Wave Bandpass, Missile Dome Design

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N092151

    Agiltron will develop an infrared coating and Ka-band pass filter that can be used in missile domes and windows. An electrically conductive doped silicon thin layer is proposed as the shielding layer to replace the current embedded metal grid for shielding out-of-band microwave and radio frequencies. Silicon (Si) and aluminum oxide (Al2O3), both with good environment durability, are proposed for t ...

  6. Autonomic 3-D Fire Targeting System

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N101060

    In this program, Agiltron will partner with Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) to build, test, and deliver to the Navy a 3-D Fire Targeting System that will be the first such system to meet the requirements for exterior shipboard fire detection in next-generation Navy warships, such as the Zumwalt-class DDG-1000 destroyer. The 3-D Fire Targeting System uses multiple thermal mapping cameras ...

  7. GPS Reference While Submerged

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N091091

    Knowing the exact submarine position while submerged is critical for the Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) submarine programs to ensure mission success. Based on the fiber sensor technology, AGILTRON proposes to realize a distributed sensor device to determine the relative location of a GPS device to its submarine mother ship. The sensor has a high precision over a long distance, and is suitable fo ...

  8. Hull Contamination Measurement

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N101066

    We propose to develop a system to identify hull surface contamination, such as lubricants and amines formed during the coating process, using a measurement technique that can be adapted to a ship construction environment. The method we propose is laser light scattering, specifically standoff Raman scattering, to provide a noncontact, high-speed, accurate method of checking for and chemically ident ...

  9. Micro Gimbal with Gradient Index Lens Technology

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N101017

    Building on our experience in fiber lens array beam steering, gradient index optical component design and fabrication, and high quality precise optical system design, AGILTRON proposes to produce an micro gimbal with gradient index lens technology. It includes four key optical modules: (1) precise pointing module; (2) coarse pointing module; (3) angle magnifier module; and (4) laser designator mod ...

  10. Hand held Eddy Current Tester for Accurate Depth Measurement of Case Hardening in Aerospace Materials

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N102141

    New technology is needed for nondestructive inspection (NDI) of the interface depth on case hardened aerospace components such as gears and drive trains. At this time, the standard method of measurement is destructive and sample dependent - cross sectioning and traverse-hardness testing. An NDI technology capable of measuring the core-to-case interface depth on small, geometrically complex areas t ...
