  1. Storable Clean Ethane/ethylene Nitrous Engine (SCENE)

    SBC: PIONEER ASTRONAUTICS            Topic: MDA18T005

    he Storable Clean Ethane-ethylene Nitrous Engine (SCENE) is a proposed technology designed to provide upper stages and spacecraft with non-toxic, liquid, non-cryogenic, high-performance propulsion with an Isp on the order of 300 seconds. The propellant components are stored as liquids under their saturated vapor pressures. With the SCENE, nitrous oxide is used as an autogenously pressurized oxidiz ...

  3. Innovative Methodologies for Manufacturing of Lethality Test Articles

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: MDA17T001

    The experimental validation of the DoDs weapon systems is at the cornerstone of national security considerations. The structural requirements for the targets utilized impose a severe cost and lead time burden due to the limitations imposed by the traditional manufacturing processes currently used. Novel manufacturing methods for metal alloys have been established in the past years, but they have y ...

  4. Smart Baseplate for Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: DLA18A001

    Additive manufacturing (AM) has rapidly evolved into a valuable technique for making parts which, at times, cannot be fabricated through conventional machining methods.One challenge in the area of AM is the lack of real-time feedback on the fabrication process and the quality of the part being made.This is especially critical given the relatively long periods of time that complex parts can require ...

  5. Additive Manufacturing Sensor Fusion Technologies for Process Monitoring and Control.

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: DLA18A001

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a modern and increasingly popular manufacturing process for metallic components, but suffers from well known problems of inconsistent quality of the finished product. Process monitoring and feedback control are therefore crucial research areas with a goal of solving this problem. To address this concern, X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) and the University of Dayton Res ...
