  2. Improved magneto-optic methods for aircraft corrosion detection

    SBC: Quest Integrated, LLC            Topic: AF073118

    ABSTRACT: Corrosion under multi-layer structures is a significant problem for the Air Force. The ability to detect this corrosion rapidly over a large area is also very important. The Magneto-Optic Imager (MOI) is an eddy current visualization tool that has been accepted in the market and has demonstrated the ability to rapidly inspect large areas. The principle application of the MOI within t ...

  3. High-Performance Fuels

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF06194

    ORBITEC proposes to continue the development of high-performance fuels to replace monomethyl hydrazine (MMH) and other storable fuels for in-space propulsion applications. Compounds from various chemical families were proposed in Phase I to address these needs. These families of compounds have greater heats of formation, lower volatility, and lower toxicity than MMH. Their reduced vapor pressur ...

  5. Photochemical Tissue Bonding for Military Medical Applications

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: AF07T033

    As described in our Phase I proposal: the overall goal is to develop a complete system for micro-anastomosis of blood vessels. This involves (1) a unique laser system that uses water as the absorbing chromophore, (2) a clinically useful handpiece that is appropriate for microsurgery, (3) a novel albumin stent to support the vessel during anastomosis, (4) in vitro testing of the device to assess th ...

  6. Energetic Polyazide Materials

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF08T022

    Orbital Technologies Corporation and Penn State University propose to examine and characterize novel energetic formulations in solid fuels to replace conventional, low-energy, binders such as HTPB. The proposed solid fuels will provide higher enthalpy, higher density, and improved rocket engine performance. In Phase I, we will calculate theoretical rocket performance of selected materials, chara ...
