  1. Fiber-Optic Raman Analysis for Composites and Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: PROCESS INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose developing a compact, optical fiber-based Raman scattering instrument for rapid, in-situ analysis of composites, solid rocket motors, and propellants. The instrument will incorporate diode laser-based, full-spectrum Raman scattering forcontinuous in-situ remote monitoring of the composite and propellant chemistry. Narrow well defined Raman peaks and lack of sample preparation requirem ...

  2. High Performance Actuators for Solid Propulsion Control Systems

    SBC: Electric Drivetrain Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA16010

    The US Missile Defense Agency is seeking to develop innovative architectures and/or high temperature electronics for increasing the temperature capability of actuators used with proportionally controlled valves/thrusters. Solid propellant exhaust gases are commonly 2,000-4,000F while the actuator to valve/thruster interface commonly must be limited to less than 200-300F. This relatively low temp ...

  3. HIGH POWER LOW IMPEDANCE LIGHT WEIGHT TRANSMISSION LINES

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH POWER, LOW IMPEDANCE, LIGHTWEIGHT ENERGY STORAGE TRANSMISSION LINES FOR PULSE-POWER APPLICATIONS IS CRUCIAL FORSMALLER, LIGHTWEIGHT, SPACE-BASED, PULSE-POWER SYSTEMS. DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH DIELECTRIC ENERGY STORAGE LINE TECHNOLOGY WOULD GREATLY REDUCETHE SIZE, WEIGHT, AND COMPLEXITY OF PULSE POWER SYSTEMS UTILIZING THESE TYPES OF COMPONENTS. EFFICIENT TRANSPORT OF 400KV, 100K ...

  6. Large Space Optics Alignment Sensor

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Under this Phase I SBIR Kestrel Corporation proposes to demonstrate the advantages of a novel optical technique for measuring wavefront aberrations as a means for aligning large, segmented, space telescopes such as those that might be employed in a SpaceBased Laser (SBL) Weapon system. The same technology has applications as a wavefront sensor for determining aberrations in the transmitted beam. ...

  7. Low Cost Fabrication of THAAD Heatshields Using Placed Fiber Manufacturing

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A program is proposed to investigate and demonstrate an innovative, low cost approach to the production of quartz/phenolic (Q/P) heatshields such as those presently used on the Theater High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) System. These heatshields arecurrently fabricated with a tape wrap process using a woven quartz fabric impregnated with phenolic resin. Through the novel use of placed fiber tech ...

  9. MICROSTACK INSULATOR FOR HIGH VOLTAGE PULSED SYSTEMS

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    POLYMERIC OR CERAMIC INSULATORS CONVENTIONALLY ARE BEING USED IN HIGH VOLTAGE PULSED SYSTEMS. NEW APPROACHES ARE NEEDED THAT WOULD REDUCE INSULATORS RING THICKNESSES AND INCREASE CORRESPONDING GRADING RINGS FLASHOVER VOLTAGE. SUCH AN APPROACH WOULD POSSESS IN COMPARISON TO CONVENTIONAL INSULATORS: HIGHER SURFACE FLASHOVER FIELD STRENGTH; SMALLER PHYSICAL DIMENSIONS FOR EQUIVALENT VOLTAGE HOLDOFF; ...

  10. Multi-Object Deployment System (MODS)

    SBC: LOADPATH, LLC            Topic: MDA15018

    Ballistic missile threats include the potential for complex target scenes including countermeasures and debris in addition to lethal objects. In order to defend against this threat, the Ballistics Missile Defense System (BMDS) has been developed to intercept the targets. The construct of using multiple interceptors on a single target is both costly and taxing on the BMDS command control. However, ...
