  1. Multimodal Acoustic Tool for Inline Pipe Inspection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 180PH1

    The United States has a vast network of pipelines used for fuel transport. This infrastructure, installed in 1950–1970, is one of the largest in the world. Yet poor/missing records of the materials used, combined with the overall age and associated environmental degradation effects, often results in unsafe operation. Current non-destructive inspection techniques are only capable of detecting mat ...

  2. Synoptic Approach to Harmonize Discrete Data Streams in Application Development

    SBC: It Works Inc            Topic: 180NH1

    Research conducted in Phase I identified a range of data sources providing vehicle related information to consumers shopping around or interested in knowing more about vehicles. Majority of the commercial data sources focused on vehicle features, new/used/CPO pricing, and vehicles listings. Such data sources lacked safety as their central focus, which is a concern for U.S. Department of Transporta ...

  3. Contamination-Free, Lightweight, Helium-Rubidium Vapor Circulator for DPAL Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA12018

    Diode-Pumped Alkali Laser (DPAL) systems have great potential for missile defense and other applications. These systems require a uniform, steady, flowing mixture of helium and rubidium vapor at elevated pressure and temperature. Significant challenges exist because rubidium is a very reactive material. Our team has developed a contamination-free, hermetic circulator based on gas-bearing turbomach ...

  5. Advanced Synergistic Structures and Materials for Interceptor Kill Vehicles

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA10015

    "Mentis proposes to leverage the advantages of its high-temperature, low-density quartz/polysiloxane composite materials and develop fiber architectures that reduce interlaminar shear stresses. These developments would improve aerothermal longevity and performance and also utilize automated fiber placement methods that increase the affordability of nosecone materials. Mentis proposes to design a c ...

  6. A Framework for an Optimal and Adaptive BMDS Firing Doctrine

    SBC: CARDINAL SYSTEMS & ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: MDA02017

    The BMDS is being developed as a fully integrated, layered defense capable of defending against all ranges of threats. A critical aspect of this development is an integrated approach to interceptor allocation. A model-based framework for optimizing multi-layer BMDS performance, developing interceptor firing doctrine, and providing for adaptive, real-time interceptor allocation was developed in P ...

  7. Thin-Walled HfN Components for KKV Divert and Attitude Control Systems

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: BMDO01002

    During this Phase 2 program, which has been submitted under Pre-2002 MDA Phase 2 Guidelines, we propose to transition the status of potentially ultrahigh temperature-capable, highly cost-effective, HfN-based monolithic ceramics and cermets (two-phase ceramic + metallic) materials from the laboratory scale to engineering status. It is our hope and expectation that follow-on funding for our Phase 1 ...

  8. On-Orbit Longevity of Cryogenic Cooling Systems

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: MDA03062

    Exothermics and their Phase 2 partner Northrop Grumman Space Technology seek to increase the reliability, producibility and performance of cryocoolers which cool Long and Very Long Wave Infrared (LWIR and VLWIR) focal planes in space surveillance systems. The materials proposed for investigation address the regenerator, a critical thermodynamic component in pulse tube and Stirling cryocoolers. In ...

  9. Innovative Manufacturing Processes

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA02021

    The focus of the Phase I SBIR effort, SMDC Contract DASG60-03-C-0093, was to initiate a study of this same material for different RF frequencies, specifically, X-Band. The preliminary results are very promising. Purposely, MSI utilized its core competencies to develop a viable X-band candidate solution and leapfrogged the bulk of the material properties analysis to evaluate the electrical stabil ...

  10. Mentis Sciences Ceramic Composite Materials and Structures

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA03054

    The focus of this proposal is to continue the R&D efforts of the Si3N4 radome solution. In Phase I, MSI demonstrated the ability to produce near theoretical density conventional RBSN, as well as RBSN reinforced with Nextel 610 Alumina chopped fibers. In Phase II, MSI proposes to refine these approaches, fabricate multiple samples to create a materials property database, and scale up the processing ...
