  1. Hydrogel Activated Bulkhead Shaft Seal

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N04073

    Midé is proposing to complete the development of a hydrogel activated bulkhead shaft seal for the DDG-51 class ships. The purpose of a bulkhead seal is to prevent flooding between compartments along the main propulsion shafting. The current shipbuilder specifications require that the bulkhead shaft seal must be self-activating with a maximum leakage rate of 1 US pt/min for DDG ships. The probl ...

  2. Si-N-B-C Aerogels for Thermal Protection System of Reentry Vehicles

    SBC: ASPEN AEROGELS, INC.            Topic: AF04031

    The Air Force has an interest in new designs and new materials for TPS of hypersonic reentry vehicles. Military hypersonic vehicles will reenter the atmosphere according to trajectories that are more aggressive than that of the Space Shuttle Orbiter and expected to be able to maneuver in the atmosphere at speeds around March 20 for more than 4100 seconds. This will result in the extremely high t ...

  3. Bayesian Troop-Target Detection, Tracking, and Prediction Using FOPEN-GMTI Radar

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB041024

    The "troop-target" problem of automatic detection, tracking, and prediction of the formations of dismounted ground troops concealed in foliage, using FOPEN-GMTI radars introduces challenges well beyond those encountered in more conventional group-target problems. AD HOC troop formations are considerably more amorphous and unpredictable and they must be deduced from the constituent individuals. Y ...

  4. Field and Modeling Test Bed for Plume Detection through Sunlit Clouds

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA03004

    Early Launch Detection and Tracking (ELDT) is emerging as a key component of US ballistic missile defense strategy. The complications of sunlit cloud cover and long slant path viewing make the problem extremely challenging and have thus far hindered the validation of proposed approaches. Spectral Sciences, Inc. (SSI), in collaboration with SciTec, Inc., proposes to develop a validated simulation a ...

  5. Precision Aerial Delivery of Sonobuoys (PADS)

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N04014

    PADS is an add-on device that couples to existing A/2 or smaller sonobuoys. When configured for launch, PADS conforms to A-size sonobuoy mass and geometry, so current ASW hardware and operational concepts can be employed for deployment. When launched from high altitude, PADS deploys wings and control surfaces to become a precision air delivery platform with a stand-off range approaching of 50 nm. ...

  6. Maskless Lithography for Fabrication of Microelectronics with 100 nm Features

    SBC: LUMARRAY INC.            Topic: SB032045

    The proposed Phase II program will produce in 1 year a low-cost, flexible, maskless-lithography tool, the Model 150A, capable of patterning arbitrary-geometries at minimum half-pitch features of 150 nm. This tool will meet the unique needs of DOD and ASIC practitioners for custom circuits, as well as the needs of a growing community in nanoscale science and engineering. The Model 150A, will emplo ...

  7. Computation of Highly Excited Molecular Spectra

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA02016

    Radiation-transport (RT) codes constitute the core component of the target, plume, background, and atmospheric signature models utilized by MDA and virtually every other government agency and commercial company involved in developing optically-based weapons, surveillance, and remote sensing systems. Critical to the accuracy and range of application of RT codes are the accuracy and completeness of ...

  8. Low Cost, Impact Damage Resistant Pultruded Composite Ship Structure

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N03101

    In Phase I KaZaK designed, fabricated and tested ¼ scale models of numerous material and configuration alternatives for the current 1” thick steel LCU hull bottom. Each alternative was made from composite materials, optimized for pultrusion processing to minimize cost, and tailored for production using KaZaK’s 10’ wide pultrusion equipment. Impact tests comparing performance of composite ca ...

  9. Integration and Range Test of a Photonic Beamformer with Photonic Antenna Modules

    SBC: Photonic Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA04020

    PSI has recently demonstrated two photonic subsystems: a novel T/R photonic antenna module and a photonic true time delay (PTTD) beamformer. We propose the fabrication, integration and test of these subsystems via a phased antenna array range demonstration in which the test system is comprised of a wideband antenna array, prototype antenna modules and a PTTD beamformer. The overarching goal of t ...

  10. Wiring System In-Situ Health Monitoring Diagnostics

    SBC: LiveWire Test Labs, Inc.            Topic: AF04153

    Aging aircraft wiring has been identified as an area of critical national concern, due to safety problems, maintenance expense, and lost mission capable time. The objective of this proposal is to create and deploy a wire fault location system for aging aircraft utilizing spread spectrum sensing methods. This project will develop a Wiring In Line Maintenance Aid (WILMA) that can be used for in lin ...
