  1. Catalytic Conversion Recycling Process for Composite Aircraft Components

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cured aircraft composite materials present a particularly difficult challenge for recycling technology. Those materials have mostly thermosetting epoxy matrices and occur in intimate association with metals, paints, and coatings. Current techniques for recycling thermoset composites, mostly for automotive sheet molding compounds (SMC), involve pulverizing the material for use as fillers. Th ...

  2. Tertiary Recycling Process for Shipboard Plastic Processor Product

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A novel tertiary recycling process is proposed for investigation as an economical means for recycling shipboard plastic waste. Early development work has shown that this process can convert a wide variety of polymers and composites into low molecular weight hydrocarbons at temperatures below 200'C. The hydrocarbons produced can then be reused as chemicals, fuels, or monomers. Metal, glass, and fil ...

  3. Software Tools for Analysis and Design of Conformal Antennas

    SBC: Applied EM Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The growing reliance on wireless electronic systems presents us with a need for new diversity antennas for civilian and military platforms. These antennas must take account of platform curvature, material treatments and nearby interactions, all of which affect the antenna performance. To support the development and design of these antennas, a new generation of analysis is required which retains ...

  4. Lighter-Than-Air Optical Platform

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A miniaturized lighter-than-air (LTA) unmanned air vehicle (UAV) is proposed as a low altitude, station keeping, optical instrumentation platform. The advanced airship design will be derived from parameters developed during the successful Small Aerostat Surveillance System, Low Intensity Target Exploitation (SASS LITE) UAV program. This miniature airship developed by Applied Research Associates, I ...

  5. Methodology to Predict Ballistic Penetration and Damage of Composite Laminated Structures

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Current utilization of composite materials in air and surface weapons systems and structures is extensive, and the use of these materials can be expected to increase in the future. Weapons effectiveness assessments and the design of protective structures require methodologies to predict the terminal ballistic interactions between projectiles and fragments penetrating composite laminated target st ...

  6. Engineering Models of Reactive Munitions and Damage Effects

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Warhead design calculations and weapons effectiveness estimates require a methodology to predict structural response and the associated damage to air targets from reactive munitions. The objectives for the proposed Phase I study effort are to develop candidate launch conditioning, reaction initiation and reaction rate methodology, to incorporate existing ballistic, blast and quasi-static pres ...

  7. Small Lot Repair/Manufacture of Microcircuit Boards by Laser Deposition

    SBC: Cm Consulting            Topic: N/A

    The final prototype of the Microcircuit Board Repair apparatus will be capable of laying down or lifting metal strips with micrometer dimensions. Under real time computer control, the translation stages will be fully automated or manually controlled. The end user will monitor the process in real time using a camera attached with the source. Laying down the metal lines will be done using Laser C ...

  10. Multi-Source Portable Tele-Conferencing System (MPTS) A Portable Tele-Training/Technical Assistance Tool for the NAVY

    SBC: Lb&m Assoc., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The U.S. Navy has already achieved dramatic cost savings using teleconferencing technology in its Chief Electronic Schoolhouse Network (CESN) project. Even greater cost savings could be achieved if teleconferencing technology were portable and reliable enough to be used from any geographic location (ship or shore), in the world. At the same time, experiments like the Defense Information Services ...
