  1. Polymer-Cased Ammunition for Small Arms and Cannon Ammunition


    Mississippi Polymer Technologies Inc. (MPT) proposes to develop a new generation of polymeric lightweight ammunition weighing approximately 1/3 less than existing brass ammunition. Previous efforts to develop polymer-cased ammunition have failed primarily because of problems associated with choice of case materials. During Phase I, MPT has demonstrated proof of concept overcoming these issues. D ...

  2. Insertion of an L-band SiC Static Induction Transistor into Missile Defense Radars

    SBC: SemiSouth Laboratories            Topic: MDA02021b

    SemiSouth proposes to prototype proprietary self-aligned L-band SiC Static Induction Transistors, with 400 V gate-to-drain breakdown voltage, for radar transmitters. A minimum of 14 wafers will be processed, allowing for thousands of parts to be delivered to system integrators. Parts will be delivered to system integrators, load-pull RF tested, and feedback will be used to modify process and lay ...

  3. Radiation and temperature-tolerant SiC JFET technologies for Space-Based Systems

    SBC: SemiSouth Laboratories            Topic: BMDO02T00

    SiC Integrated Circuits (IC''s) offer the potential for operation over a wide temperature range (77 K to 800 K), and high-radiation environments. In this proposal, we outline a program to transfer and mature patented SiC epitaxy and device technology for use in SiC JFET IC''s from Mississippi State University to SemiSouth Laboratories. The result will be precise controlled epitaxy layers (doping ...

  4. PERCORP Enhancement for Improved Soot Modeling

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: MDA03082

    This effort will improve plume signature prediction of hydrocarbon burning liquid rocket engines by increasing the fidelity of the soot production models used to predict exhaust conditions. The new models will include improved kinetic mechanisms as well as prediction of soot particle size, shape and distribution. The models will be correlated and verified through testing. An experimental rocket ...

  5. Flywheel ACS Integrated KV

    SBC: QUOIN INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: MDA04T003

    The Missile Defense Agency is seeking concepts and associated technologies for the next generation multi use kinetic kill vehicle that will allow effective vehicle attitude and divert control in both exo- and endo-atmospheric flight regimes. In addition, they seek new concepts for internal vehicle control that do not rely on side thrusters and ejection of propellant products. They require a kinet ...

  6. Heat Storage and Temperature Amplification for Space-Based Laser Diode Cooling

    SBC: Rocky Research            Topic: MDA03065

    The proposed Phase II effort is to build two complex compound prototypes to remove 4.6 kW heat from laser diodes at 280K to 300K. The prototype will be delivered to MDA upon completion of the Phase II project. The technology is based on a proven solid-vapor sorption complex compound technology used in refrigeration and freezers. The complex compound technology has the following features: A ...

  8. Thermal Decomposer for Peroxide

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: MDA03T005

    The utilization of High Test Hydrogen Peroxide (HTP) as military propellant can be greatly simplified by replacing the classical catalyst bed with a novel thermal decomposer. A thermal peroxide decomposition system offers the potential to enhance the operability and system safety margin of peroxide systems. Fundamental knowledge of decomposition kinetics, including the effects of common stabiliz ...

  9. Development of Radiation Hard 4H-SiC Power Switches and Rectifiers for Circuit Applications In Harsh Environments

    SBC: SemiSouth Laboratories            Topic: MDA04T019

    SiC power switch devices such as Vertical Junction Field Effect Transistors (VJFETs) and Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistors (MOSFETs) are being developed for power conditioning applications in a variety of rugged environments. While the SiC devices have been well characterized for high-temperature behavior, much less data is available for radiation effects, including gamma and pro ...

  10. Advanced Injector Designs for Hydrocarbon Liquid Rocket Engine Components

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: OSD03010

    Combustion instability is one of the greatest development risks for liquid propellant engines. In developing a stable injector design, the risks arise from a variety of sources - limited modeling capabilities, poor scalability and the high cost of appropriate component test facilities. Sierra Engineering Inc. believes that much of the empirical data on the injection element's driving characteris ...
