  1. Single Cell Carbide Fueled Thermionic Fuel Element

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    If you can't beat them, join them. Such is the philosophy of Space Exploration Associates, who hired the top talent in Russian and the new Republic of Georgia to develop advanced thermionic converters for SDIO. Unlike other highly publicized exchanged with the Russians, this work will be done in the US and no hardware will cross international lines. The metallurgical wizards from the East have con ...

  2. Joining Carbon Composite Fins to Titanium Heat Pipes

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Everybody knows that composites have high strength, low density, and great thermal properties. They would be great for a number of applications such as fins for spacecraft radiators. So why aren't they used more on spacecraft thermal systems? One reason is joining technology. Although many methods such as brazing and adhesives have been developed for joining composites to metals, these methods are ...

  3. High Performance Arcjet Engines

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED THAT ADVANCED ARCJET ENGINES CAN BE DEVELOPED USING KNOWN PRINCIPLES FOR ADVANCED NOZZLE DESIGN, ARC ATTACHMENT, INCREASED CHAMBER EFFECTIVE TEMPERATURE AND SO FORTH. SUCH STUDIES ARE PARTIALLY SUPPORTED BY EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS BY RESEARCHERS IN THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION. YET THESE PRINCIPLES RESULT IN INCREASED HEATING OF THE ANODE, AS THE ARC MORE EFFECTIVELY HEATS THE ANODE. THIS CA ...

  4. Thermionic Nuclear Thermal Propulsion Bimodal Reactor

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    BIMODAL REACTORS FOR POWER AND PROPULSION HAVE LONG BEEN OF INTEREST FOR MISSIONS REQUIRINGS BOTH HIGH POWER AND LARGE DELTA-V; E.G., HIGH ALTITUDE, GEOSYNCHRONOUS AND PLANETARY MISSIONS. IT PROPULSIVE THRUST AND ELECTRIC POWER CAN BOTH BE SUPPLIED FROM THE SAME UNIT, A LARGE POTENTIAL SAVINGS CAN OCCUR. SUCH A REACTOR CAN BE DEVELOPED FROM A URANIUM CARBIDE FUELED THERMIONIC REACTOR WITH SINGLE C ...

  5. Solid State Neutron Detector

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Phase I proposes to demonstrate an easy-to-operate, inexpensive room temperature neutron detector based on boron-doped diamond. The detector would produce an immediate signal related to low-level neutron irradiation. The concept exploits the high neutron absorption cross section of B-10, which results in excellent sensitivity. The charge carriers generated in the diamond by a neutron absorption ev ...

  6. Solid State Neutron Sensor

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Unexpected coupling between nuclear reaction cross sections and the solid state of metal deuterides has been demonstrated in layered Pd-PdO deuterided structures. As a result, high rates of charged particle and neutron measurements have been observed through a reaction initiated by altering the chemical state of the system. Moreover, the system acts as an amplifier of fast neutrons, with a 200-to- ...

  7. A Novel Technique for Processing Advance Composites and Joining/Bonding Epoxy

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The development of a microwave curing method for resin matrix composites and jointing/bonding epoxy is proposed. This technique will take advantage of the ability of vapor-grown carbon fiber (VGCF) to absorb microwave energy with high efficiency. By adding VGCF to resin matrix composite material and epoxy, we hope that the materials can be processed by microwave irradiation in a manner that result ...

  8. Nitride, Carbide and Non-Oxide In Situ Coatings Using RECVD,A New CVD Method

    SBC: CCVD, Inc dba MicroCoating Technologies (MCT)            Topic: N/A

    Currently, thermal spray (flame and plasma spray) is the only single step method of applying most metal and non-oxide ceramic coatings to large objects. These coatings are usually of a low quality, and thin films cannot be applied. An in situ deposition technique that inexpensively and easily applies nitrides, carbides and other non-oxide thin or thick films in an environmentally friendly manner i ...

  9. Production Friendly GaN Coatings Using RECVD, a New CVD Method

    SBC: CCVD, Inc dba MicroCoating Technologies (MCT)            Topic: N/A

    Currently vacuum based methods of PVD and CVD are the only processes for forming GaN thin films and coatings. These methods are usually expensive and are not applied in a production friendly manner. An atmospheric deposition technique that inexpensively and easily applies GaN thin or thick films in an environmentally friendly manner is a priority for any number of DOD and commercial applications. ...
