  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 ...

  8. AlxGa(1-x)N High Electron Mobility Transistors for High Temperature Applications

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    GaN high electron mobility transistors or HEMTs are proposed for use as high temperature electronic devices. HEMTs are excellent for both power and low noise amplification since they posses a high carrier concentration and an enhanced carrier mobility. GaN has a large bandgap of 3.2 a, which gives it a greater breakdown voltage and a higher saturated electron velocity than GaAs. GaN, in addition, ...

  9. 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 ...
