  1. Composite Case Improvement for Solid Rocket Motor

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA06T004

    It is proposed to develop, model, and demonstrate composite case materials with sympathetic responses to slow cookoff. In phase II, the proposed study will focus upon conducting subscale SCO testing on composite case materials and validate a physics based modeling and simulation tool. Subscale motor case dimensions will be analogue to a specific MDA rocket booster.

  2. Radar Debris Algorithms and Models for Discrimination

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA07T004

    We are proposing an innovative approach to sensor fusion and target recognition based on transductive inference with support vector machines. Our proposed algorithm will apply innovative discrimination to the fusion of sensor (feature) and contextual scenario information through the development of robust algorithms and software necessary to collect, process, and fuse information from multiple sour ...

  3. Miniaturized Thermoacoustic Cryocooler for Missile Defense Applications(1001-088)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T002

    The U.S. military envisions a range of cryocooler systems that can enable specific operational requirements. For missile defense applications, Triton is targeting cooling of infrared focal plane arrays (FPA) in optics which address surveillance, missile threat warning systems and missile seeker systems in general. Triton Systems Inc proposes to develop thermal management solutions for space elec ...

  5. Broadly Tunable Quantum Cascade Laser Technology for Remote Sensing

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 01

    National security interests related to the nonproliferation of weapons of mass destruction require the remote detection of trace gases associated with the nuclear fuel cycle. Newly developed, mid-infrared, quantum cascade lasers have the potential to contribute to this application. These small solid state lasers produce relatively high power in the infrared band of light where many gases can be ...

  6. 5V, High Gain, High Sensitivity Photomultiplier Detector

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 26a

    This project will demonstrate a breakthrough detector for the readout of scintillators used for gamma ray detection in Nuclear Physics experiments. The new detector: (1) will overcome the quantum efficiency and high voltage limits of current photomultipliers (PMTs) and Avalanche Photodiodes (APDs); (2) will offer the possibility of improving scintillator detector resolution at least by a factor ...

  7. High Field Stability Exploration of Second Generation HTS

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: 33a

    Low-temperature superconductors have limited usefulness at very high magnetic fields or in high heat load applications, which are representative of some sections in future particle accelerators. In this project, the suitability of second generation (2G) high-temperature superconductor (HTS) wire will be explored for these environments. The characterization of this developing superconductor has b ...

  8. Low AC Loss YBCO Coated Conductor Geometry by Direct Inkjet Printing

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: 44a

    Second generation high temperature superconductors BC50offer potential benefits for many electric power applications, including those that require filamentizated conductors with low ac loss, such as transformers and fault current limiters. However, the use of 2G wire in these applications requires the development of both novel multi-filamentary conductor designs with lower ac losses and advanced ...

  9. High Efficiency Electron Detector for Electron Microscopy

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: 13b

    This project seeks to demonstrate an improved, ultra fast and high efficiency electron detector for electron microscopy. The proposed approach will have high radiation resistance compared to current state-of-the-art detectors. The detector also will have a very low decay time, which will enable a faster scanning time than current detector materials, and higher brightness. Phase I will involve t ...

  10. Sequestration and Separation of Mercury in Wet Flue Gas Desulfurization Systems

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 21b

    Mercury regulations passed by the EPA will require stringent mercury emission control from wet flue gas desulfurization scrubbers, used in the production of electricity from coal. The first problem is that a portion of the mercury captured by the wet scrubber is re-emitted. The second problem is that FGD by-products, including gypsum, will increase from 31 million tons in 2004 to 86 million ton ...
