  1. Strain Rate Effects in Ballistic Analyses of Bonded & Co-Cured Composite Structures

    SBC: ADTECH SYSTEMS RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    A program is proposed that will extend (and build upon) the work already started by the Survivability Group of the Composites Affordability Initiative, Pervasive Team in developing methods for analyzing the effects of ballistic and hydrodynamic ram (HRAM)loading and damage in bonded/co-cured composite structures.Specifically, the objective will be to remedy a major shortcoming of current HRAM fini ...

  2. Develop High-Temperature, Low-Humidity Aromatic Hydrocarbon-based H2/O2 Membranes for Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cells

    SBC: AKRON POLYMER SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF071130

    In order to achieve high performance at acceptable cost, PEM fuel cells are required to work at elevated temperature and low relative humidity (near 0 RH) for extended periods of time. However, to date, no commercial PEMs or publicly reported PEMs can meet these requirements. The objectives of this work are: (1) to develop PEMs that have high proton conductivities (50-100 mS/cm) and low area-spec ...

  3. Environmentally Friendly Cleaning for Titanium Welds and Brazing

    SBC: APPLICATIONS TECHNOLOGIES CO.LLC            Topic: AF06326

    The first critical step in welding or brazing is cleaning to remove surface contamination. The Air Force has a need for an environmentally cleaning method that has no waste stream, minimal requirements of personal safety protection, and does not impact component integrity. The Arc Scrubber is an emerging non-chemical cleaning technology that utilizes and electrical arc to remove surface contamin ...

  4. Calibration of Space-Based Sensors and Unknown Target Signature Separation

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Applied Optimization, Inc. proposes a three-step approach for identifying the unknown physical characteristics of a target satellite based on its multi-spectral point image. In the first step, a method is proposed for calibrating space-based passivesensors using data from tracking a Navstar satellite. The specific data to be used was obtained by an experiment aboard the MSX satellite. There are tw ...

  5. Unresolved Resident Space Object Characterization Using Time-Frequency Analysis

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: AF071283

    Applied Optimization, Inc. [AO] proposes to demonstrate full feature characterization of unresolved RSOs by performing spectral unmixing and time-frequency analysis of its time and spectrally resolved signature in the visible or infrared spectrum. The characterization will be performed step-by-step by following a taxonomy of feature extraction. Materials identification will be performed via spectr ...

  6. Silicon-Modified Nanofibers for Advanced Lithium Ion Anodes

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: OSD08EP2

    Advanced rechargeable battery technology providing higher energy densities and higher specific energies is being sought by the OSD to extend the range and capability of small electronic systems. In this proposal, an anode material is proposed based on carbon nanofiber alloyed with silicon. While many researchers have tested carbon-silicon alloys created through various schemes, these materials s ...
