  1. AGILE Sonobuoy Launcher


    Current helicopter sonobuoy launchers are complex, heavy and will not meet future requirements for mission versatility. Because of the complexity of the launcher and its pneumatic subsystem, the launcher has many points of potential failure; its reliability is poor. Further, as in other pneumatic systems involving stored compressed air, the system is subject to vagaries of pressure which can resul ...

  2. Low Drag Multi-Frequency Radome

    SBC: LINDSEY ASSOC.            Topic: N03104

    In this effort a high temperature inorganic polymer binder will be combined with quartz fabric layers to construct radomes that will be transparent at millimeter wavelengths and act as an electrical conductor at low frequencies. Electrical performance and environmental performance will be demonstrated during this effort with the use of test coupons and full sized radomes. Lindsey Associates freq ...

  3. Hot Gun Barrel Detector for Navy Guns

    SBC: Industrial Measurement Systems Inc.            Topic: N03066

    The Navy has a critical need to measure temperatures at critical areas on the inner bore surfaces of large guns in order to insure appropriate action is taken in case of a misfire. In the case of a misfire, the gun crew must know the bore surface temperature in order to decide if they have time to safely remove the ammunition before enough heat has transferred from the hot barrel, possibly initi ...

  4. Intelligent Test Data Analysis Technology (IT-DAT)


    Modern weapon and aircraft control systems are software intensive, containing many complex internal and external interfaces. Accurate testing is vital to ensure that the system is functioning properly and will meet all operational requirements. Most current testing focuses on components and subsystems and is labor intensive relying heavily on the subjective judgment of expert personnel. There a ...

  7. High-Temperature Amorphous Coating for CMCs for Protection against Hot Corrosion

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N04250

    Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are being targeted for many military and commercial applications due to their light weight and high temperature stability. Their deployment is hampered by limited environmental durability. The Navy, under the JSF program, is evaluating a high performance CMC for an exhaust nozzle component. The CMC suffers from environmental degradation, primarily due to hot cor ...

  8. Innovative Quality Control Assessment Methods for Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) Components

    SBC: Industrial Measurement Systems Inc.            Topic: N04249

    The fabrication of ceramic matrix composites is a multi-step process requiring careful monitoring and control at each step in the processing cycle. Consistent, high quality components can only be reliably reproduced if a firm foundation is provided by initially insuring the uniformity and consistency of the reinforcing yarns. Although considerable effort has been invested in developing NDE suita ...
