  1. Long-Duration, Eye-in-the-Sky Monitoring for Airfield Threat Detection

    SBC: DEFENSE RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF06204

    In today’s Urban-Warfare Command and Control, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C2ISR) environment, current sensor platforms have a limited operational capability due to power consumption and recharge times. Many times these sensor packages are found to be unsuitable for many battlefield environments due strictly to their endurance limitations. Much of the research done to date has ...

  3. Technologies for the Rapid Curing of Composite Parts (PVCI08-007-1)

    SBC: Vector Composites, Inc.            Topic: AF083C068

    Bismaleimide (BMI) 5250-4 and epoxy 977-3 material systems are used in F-35 aircraft composite components fabricated via autoclave. Alternative out-of-autoclave processes can reduce manufacturing costs by lowering capital and tooling costs and providing faster cure cycles, if properties can be maintained. Feasibility of the Quickstep out-of-autoclave process for 5250-4 and 977-3 material systems h ...
