  1. Additive Manufacturing of Metallic Materials for High Strain Rate Applications

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: MDA17T001

    Metallic additive manufacturing (AM) is an attractive technology for the production of lethality test articles due to the potential for significantly reduced lead time and manufacturing cost.However, in order to be effective in providing accurate lethality data, the properties of the AM material have to match closely the properties of conventionally manufactured alloys found in real threat targets ...

  2. A Li-Ion Battery Tool for Predicting Life and Performance for Satellite Orbit Operations Scenarios

    SBC: Global Aerospace Corporation            Topic: MDA08T008

    The expected life of satellite Li-Ion batteries is determined by many factors, including thermal considerations, electrode chemistries, orbit and mission life, DOD, and pulse power requirements. First-principles battery model literature pertains primarily to orbital cycling at moderate DOD under isothermal conditions without variable power loads. Knowledge must be extended to encompass wider life ...

  4. Contamination-free, Ultra-rapid Reactive Chemical Mechanical Polishing (RCMP) of GaN substrates

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: MDA09T001

    Gallium Nitride (GaN) substrates are ideal materials for fabrication of high-power and high-frequency devices based on III-V materials. The current state-of-the-art Chemical Mechanical Polishing (CMP) methods are plagued by several challenges, including, surface charge affects due to surface contamination, and sub-surface damages, which can limit the quality of III-V devices. Furthermore, there is ...

  5. Decision Making under Uncertainty

    SBC: GCAS, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T001

    Our proposed second order uncertainty (SOU) product is a decision making software solution that addresses the problem of providing accurate and precisely defined decision courses of action (COAs) of complex, time-constrained problems in a fraction of the time required by alternative methods striving to achieve the same level of precision. Complex decision situations can deal with large volume of ...

  7. Dynamic virtual moulage based on thin film adhesive displays

    SBC: ARCHIE MD INC.            Topic: DHA17A002

    Providing Army combat medics with meaningful experience in treatment of battlefield injuries is a particular challenge. Moulage has the potential to assist in acquiring what could otherwise be very hard-to-come-by preparatory experience for distressing real-life emergencies medics and soldiers may encounter in the field. However, current approaches to moulage are limited in their ability to reflec ...
