  1. Waste Disposal/Waste Management System for Low Observable (LO) Composite Materials

    SBC: WELLS SIGNATURE PRODUCTS LLC            Topic: AF04136

    Since the feedstocks used to make LO materials are themselves the products of chemical reactions, they're susceptible to decomposition or further chemical reactions, for convesion to either - Recyclable feedstock for LO manufacture or - Beneficial use in other products by destroying their LO characteristic, masking their original composition and eliminating the listed or characteristic constit ...

  2. EPVD Wear Coatings for Improvement of Landing Gear

    SBC: ADVANCED GLOBAL SERVICES, LTD            Topic: AF04268

    The objective of this work is to investigate and develop alternative wear-resistant coatings applied by a novel coating technique to improve performance of aircraft landing gear components (LGC). The selected Electro-magnetically enhanced Physical Vapor Deposition technique is developed to apply well-adhered coatings to the internal surfaces of cylindrically shaped components. This coating deposit ...

  3. Surface Protection of Aircraft Brake Pressure Plates

    SBC: ADVANCED GLOBAL SERVICES, LTD            Topic: AF04271

    The objective of this work is to develop and demonstrate a novel surface engineering concept for protection of Aircraft Brake Pressure Plates. Carbon-made aircraft breaking system components experience increased service temperatures and, when swiped by the temp stick, chemically react with the crayon and, as a result, heavily oxidize and deteriorate. PVD-based technique is used in many industries ...

  4. Advanced Sacrificial Dense Metallic Coatings for Aircraft Components

    SBC: ADVANCED GLOBAL SERVICES, LTD            Topic: AF04270

    The objective of this work is to investigate and develop dense corrosion resistant coatings to improve performance of aircraft components (AC). Cadmium metal (Cd), although a hazardous substance, is still being used as a sacrificial coating on majority of AC component. The PVD-based technique is developed to apply fully dense, well-adhered non-hazardous coatings to external as well internal surfac ...

  5. Heat Flux-Based Calorimeter for Active Thermal Coatings

    SBC: ATEC, Inc.            Topic: AF04147

    We propose to develop a calorimeter for accurately measuring the performance of active thermal control materials that can be easily deployed on spacecraft and satellites. Our calorimeter will be based on thin film heat flux gauges, which measure heat flux by determining the temperature difference across a thermally insulating film. The temperature on each side of the film is measured via an arra ...

  6. Mobile Airborne Test Range Instrumentation and Communication System

    SBC: AEROCROSS SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF03243

    Ground/shore based Test Range instrumentation systems tracking coverage are physically and geographically constrained by line-of-sight limitations while test items continue to increase in speed and range performance. A means to extend Test Range coverage is required to support increasingly demanding test scenarios. A medium altitude platform equipped with the appropriate range instrumentation el ...

  7. In-line, Real-time monitoring of Arsenic in Drinking Water

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF04302

    In this Phase I, Agave BioSystems proposes a novel approach for the development of a rapid and sensitive detection system for arsenic in drinking water based on the bioluminescent protein aequorin. The simplicity and ruggedness of this technology has the potential for providing low cost, on-line, real-time monitoring for arsenic as part of a treatment plant process control system. Aequorin is a ...

  8. Environmentally Friendly Luciferase-based Illumination Technology

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF04145

    Current technologies for marking of landing zones as well as areas for search and rescue have significant drawbacks ranging from the additional weight of batteries for some systems to plastic and metallic debris left behind. There are clear advantages both operationally and environmentally to utilizing bioluminescent materials that can be lighter and do not leave behind non-biodegradable debris. ...

  9. MCDS: A Distributed Multi-organizational Collaborative Decision Support System for Emergency Preparedness

    SBC: AGNIK LLC            Topic: AF03100

    This proposal suggests the development of a distributed Multi-organizational Collaborative Decision Support (MCDS) system for emergency preparedness, counter-terrorism, and homeland defense. The proposed MCDS system works using a collection of novel technology for distributed threat detection in a collaborative fashion. The Phase I research explored and successfully demonstrated the feasibility of ...
