  1. Matched and Ultra-Low CTE Optical Materials

    SBC: GATR Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T021

    A new material and processing technology has been developed and demonstrated that will dramatically reduce the cost of manufacturing and refurbishing large aluminum based mirrors for optical test applications. Such precision mirrors are also required for surveillance, directed energy, cryo-vacuum scene generation, optical testing, and DoD-sponsored space programs. Traditional aluminum mirror techn ...

  2. Computational Design Tool for the Synthesis and Optimization of Gel Formulations (SOGeF)

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05T003

    Gel propulsion systems combine the best characteristics of solid and liquid propellants. The gel system stores like solid propellant, but flows like a liquid when pressurized, enabling throttle and restart capability similar to liquid propellants. An ena

  3. Image/Model Based System for Optimized Helmet Design

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05T030

    Recent statistics from Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) show that significant proportion of soldiers injured in blast explosion endure traumatic brain injury (TBI). At the same time our understanding of TBI mechanisms and protection against kinetic and blast

  4. Advanced Infrared (IR) Sensor Components for Missile Defense

    SBC: Nanolight, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T011

    The objective of this proposal is to further explore PbSnSe detector array on Si substrate. Two approaches are proposed. One is a zero-risk incremental advance that employs a new growth condition to reduce the dislocation density. Another approach is a novel fabrication technique with high-risk but it could enable revolutionary rather than evolutionary advances. IV-VI semiconductors such as Pb1-x ...

  5. Gaseous, Liquid, and Gelled Propellant Hypergolic Reaction Mechanisms

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A06T001

    ORBITEC proposes a parallel computational and experimental effort to understand the phenomena underlying hypergolic ignition of gelled propellants. Gelled hypergolic propellants offer many benefits to modern propulsion systems. They offer good insensitive munitions characteristics and versatile performance. However, gelled propellants typically exhibit longer ignition delays than liquid propell ...

  6. High-yield plant based manufacturing of bioengineered spider silk (Phytosilk)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A06T015

    The high strength to weight and elasticity properties of spider silk make it of significant interest for the production of advanced fibers for military and civilian applications. Plants may offer the only feasible mechanism to produce quantities of spider silk proteins sufficient to sustain large scale manufacturing of these high performance fibers. Successful implementation of bioengineered spid ...

  7. Tantalum-Hafnium-Carbide and Tantalum-Hafnium-Carbonitride Materials for Boost Propulsion Nozzles

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: MDA06T007

    Advanced missile defense interceptors will provide our nation with the capability of defeating threats to our homeland and our deployed troops. However, the fielding of these advanced interceptors is strongly dependent upon technologies that enable production of interceptor boost nozzles capable of surviving extreme temperatures and corrosive environments with minimal erosion. Plasma Processes, ...

  8. Novel Stability Model and Flameholder Concept for Modern Augmentors

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF06T033

    Static stability is a major challenge for modern augmentors that feature close-coupled fuel injection/flameholders operating at low pressures and high inlet velocities, inlet temperatures and vitiation levels. Reduced dilatation and baroclinic vorticity effects at augmentor conditions cause large scale von Karman vortices to dominate the blowout event, in contrast to conventional bluffbody shear l ...

  9. Information Assurance Run-time Auditing (IARA)

    SBC: Sentar, Inc.            Topic: OSD06SP2

    Capabilities of large-scale software intensive systems such as those of interest to the Software Producibility Initiative are built incrementally within the overarching infrastructure. This requires frequent updates/extensions to integrate processes and to ensure expedient, fault tolerant, secure and robust operations. The potentially widespread impact made by incorporation of new capabilities cou ...

  10. Innovative Technologies Supporting Affordable Increases in Power, Efficiency, and Bandwidth for Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) X-Band Radars

    SBC: PHASE IV SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA06T012

    Under this STTR effort, the Phase IV Systems/Auburn University team will leverage Auburn University’s knowledge in applied genetic algorithm optimization algorithms for RF design problems to develop an X-band radiating element with improved mutual coupling and bandwidth compared with conventional printed circuit radiating elements. The design constraints for the genetic algorithm are increased ...
