  1. Fabrication of ZrC, HfC, TaC-based Fibrous Monolithic Ceramics for Rocket Propulsion Systems

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this program is to develop a low cost, flexible manufacturing method for the production of high temperature ceramic composites for rocket propulsion systems. The matrix materials selected for this program will be ZrC, HfC, and TaC. These-materials have good oxidation/corrosion and ablation resistance at elevated temperatures, but typically do not possess the thermal shock resistance an ...

  2. Cascaded Cryogenic Flexible Loop Heat Pipes (P12-2511)

    SBC: DYNATHERM CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Future spacecraft will require efficient heat transport at 60K Or lower, and will require flexible and thermal diode features. Cryogenic flexible heat pipes and capillary pumped loops have been developed, but are not capable of adverse tilt operation and rapid, autonomous startup. Loop heat pipes with advanced fine pore evaporator wicks show promise for meeting future needs, provided that rapid, a ...

  5. Alternative Substrates for Materials Integration

    SBC: EPITRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The recent demonstration of twist bonded GaAs substrates offers the potential to develop universally compliant substrates upon which almost any III-V or related semiconductor can be grown without lattice mismatch induced defect formation. Compliant substrates would rapidly expand and improve a number of device applications, such as Sb-based detectors and a wide range of InGaAlAsP devices, which ar ...

  6. A High-Speed Full Frame Laser 3D Imager

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: N/A

    High-speed three-dimensional (3D) imaging of objects and targets is a very important functionality of advanced sensor systems in both military and civilian applications. This capability can provide many BMDO systems with a leapfrog performance advance in target detection, identification, classification, tracking, and kill determination. The 3D imaging techniques also have enormous commercial marke ...

  7. A Novel Omni-directional 3D Camera for Battlefield Modeling

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: N/A

    To the best of our knowledge, there is no existing battle field modeling or reconnaissance technology that can provide both the real-time three dimensional (3D) range information and the omni-directional viewing capability at any cost. The primary objective of this project is to fill this gap, and to develop a high speed and low-cost 3D image sensor with an omni viewing angle (i.e., 360 degree) fo ...

  8. CRYOGENICALLY COOLED CONTROLLED SWITCH FOR SPACE POWER CONDITIONING

    SBC: Hmj Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A SOLID STATE SWITCH FOR OPERATION AT CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURE IS BEING DEVELOPED THAT WILL PROVIDE MULTI-MEGAWATT POWER CONDITIONING IN THE RAPIDLY EXPANDING FIELD OF LOW TEMPERATURE ELECTRONICS. SINCE EXISTING CONTROLLED SWITCHES ARE NOT DIRECTLY SUITABLE FOR CRYOGENIC OPERATION, ONLY A FUNDAMENTAL APPROACH CAN DEVELOP STRUCTURES CAPABLE OF LOW LOSS AND RELIABLE OPERATION IN THE TEMPERATURE RANGE B ...

  9. MAINTENANCE-AND-VIBRATION-FREE SOLID ELECTROLYTE CRYOGENIC COOLER

    SBC: LONE PEAK ENGINEERING COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    THE COOLING REQUIRED FOR THE PROPER OPERATION OF VARIOUS SENSORS AND INSTRUMENTS IS A KEY PROBLEM IN SPACE-BASED FACILITIES. A NOVEL CONCEPT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED AT LONE PEAK ENGINEERING BASED ON THE COMPRESSION OF A GAS TO HIGH PRESSURES USING A SOLID ELECTROLYTE COMPRESSOR. RAPID EXPANSION OF THE COMPRESSED GAS (JOULE-THOMSON EFFECT) CAN BE USED TO COOL SPACECRAFT INSTRUMENTS AND EQUIPMENT. SOME O ...

  10. Low Cost C-HfC Composites

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Carbon fiber - hafnium carbide matrix composites are investigated for numerous propulsion applications. High manufacturing cost precluding wider application of this technology. This proposal builds upon novel, low cost C-C composite and CVR conversion technology developed at MER. One step, low cost C-C composite cylinders will be fabricated on one step and subsequently only the matrix will be conv ...
