  1. Automated Manufacturing of Composite Materials inc

    SBC: ADC Acquisition Co. dba Automated Dynamics            Topic: A09031

    Automated fiber placement (AFP) of thermoplastic (TP) composite jackets around large caliber gun barrels and railgun cores has enabled a dramatic increase in lethality while meeting aggressive maneuver requirements. Automated Dynamics has played a central role in the development of TP AFP technology and its use for this application. There is a continuing need to improve safety, temperature capab ...

  2. SYNTHESIS OF ULTRAFINE METAL AND ALLOY POWDERS

    SBC: ADVANCED REFRACTORY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE TREND IN ALL MATERIALS IS TOWARD THE CONTROL OF MICROSTRUCTURE. IN CERAMICS AND CERMETS THE EMPHASIS IS ON THE REDUCTION OF CRYSTALLITE SIZE AND THEREBY ON IMPROVING PHYSICAL PROPERTIES. POWDERS SHOULD BE EQUIZAXED AND LIMITED TO SUBMICRON RANGE, WITHIN A NARROW AND SPECIFIC SIZE DISTRIBUTION. EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY LARGE QUANTITIES OF POWDERS MUST BE AVAILABLE AT REASONABLE COST. AS PRESENTLY ...

  3. IMPROVED MATERIALS FOR CERAMIC ARMOR FABRICATION

    SBC: ADVANCED REFRACTORY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE ABILITY TO FABRICATE CERAMIC ARMOR ECONOMICALLY IS DEPENDENT UPON SEVERAL FACTORS INCLUDING POWDER COST, FABRICATION TECHNIQUE, AND FINAL MACHINE COST. CANDIDATE CERAMIC SUCH AS TIB (2), AND B (4)C DO NOT SINTER TO FULL DENSITY. THEREFORE, NEAR-NET SHAPE FORMATION IS DIFFICULT AND EXPENSIVE, ESPECIALLY WHERE COMPLEX GEOMETRIES ARE INVOLVED. ART PROPOSES TO UTILIZE NEW POWDER SYNTHESIS TECHNOLO ...

  4. Acoustic Intercept Receiver for Naval Special Warfare Undersea Vehicles

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: N09T012

    The current generation of high-frequency active 3-D acoustic imaging systems presents a challenge to the covert use of Underwater Vehicles (UVs) by Special Forces teams. An acoustic intercept capability is needed to detect active signals before the UV is detected, so that it can vector away from the source. The team of Advanced Acoustic Concepts and Montana State University propose to design and p ...

  5. High Speed Compact Vaneaxial Fans

    SBC: ADVANCED ENERGY CONVERSION, LLC            Topic: OSD08E12

    We believe the following improvements are possible in vaneaxial fans: efficiency through improved fan blade design, coupled with the freedom to operate at speeds substantially higher than 3600rpm; reduced size by operating the fan at higher speed allows s

  6. High Temp Standoff Dielectric Antenna Windows Based on 3-D Woven Preforms

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: N08071

    Supersonic cruise missiles offer the ability to hit a time critical target with precision and lethality from long distances, yet the high speed generates temperatures on the exterior surfaces of the missile that can exceed the limitations of high temperature structural metals like titanium. Also, insulation to protect electronics equipment in the missile is required. One solution that demonstrates ...

  7. Hybrid SiC-SiC/C-SiC Thermal Protection Structural Material

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: MDA08020

    Thermal protection materials for ballistic missile kill vehicles must retain strength and stiffness at temperatures around 1500-2000oC in an oxygen rich environment, and isolate payload electronics from excessive heating. Weight is a concern, since lighter weight translates to higher velocity and kinetic energy. Further, the TPS materials must have a long service life, including the ability to w ...

  8. FUNCTIONAL INTEGRAL FORMULATION OF THREAT AVOIDANCE MISSION PLANNING

    SBC: A & D Assoc.            Topic: N/A

    MODERN COMPUTATION TECHNIQUES SUCH AS PARALLEL PROCESSING ARE WELL-SUITED FOR THE SOLUTION OF SUCH PROBLEMS AS THE SIMULTANEOUS GLOBAL EXTREMIZATION OF MULTIPLE VARIABLES IN A COMPLEX, NONLINEAR, PROBABILISTIC STATE SPACE. HOWEVER, THE USE OF THESE TECHNIQUES TO SOLVE A GIVEN PROBLEM REQUIRES THAT IT FIRST BE FORMULATED IN THESE TERMS. CURRENTLY, THREAT-AVOIDANCE MISSION PLANNING IS APPROACHED AS ...

  9. Real-time Adversarial Characterization and Adaptive Software Protection Countermeasures

    SBC: SICORE TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: OSD09IA1

    Rather than continuing to approach cyber security problems in a reactive fashion, ASD proposes to move to a proactive posture; anticipating and eliminating vulnerabilities while also being prepared to effectively and rapidly defend against attacks. Our approach collects data about the attacker as well as the attack, which it processes in real time. The data (observations) is then used by our prote ...

  10. Collective Protection for Military Working Dogs

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD08103

    Shelter enclosures for military working dogs in the event of a CB attack is a technology gap identified by the Joint Requirements Office. Important parameters to consider in the design of protective enclosures include low weight and size to minimize transport requirements; rapid setup; and accommodation of canine physiological and psychological comfort needs while providing protection against CB ...
