  1. High Energy Laser Testing of Thermal Protection Materials with a New Diagnostic

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Department of Defense and their contractors are currently limited in their ability to fabricate high temperature thermal protection and structural materials and include those materials in new aerospace vehicle designs without risk of thermally induced material failures which might compromise the new designs. Major improvements in structural designs will be difficult without cost effective mat ...

  3. Low Cost Test Methodology for High Temperature Materials using Military R&D Lasers

    SBC: Schafer Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The problem facing many U. S. high temperature material vendors is the high cost and long span times required for testing with "conventional" techniques. The higher the heat flux required for the test, the more expensive the test, and the more elaborate the facility required. The cost and schedule required for testing by "conventional" means becomes a global competitiveness problem for U. S. hig ...

  4. Metal Hydride Preheater for M2 Diesel Burner

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The XA2 gasoline burner is widely used by the military to meet a variety of food preparation and heating requirements in the field. Because of the trend toward an single-fuel Army vehicle fleet and away from gasoline as a general purpose fuel, a diesel/JPS fueled burner is sorely needed. A recently developed catalytic vapor generator together with the proposed metal-hydride preheater should prov ...

  5. Miniature MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometer

    SBC: Bruker Analytical Systems,            Topic: N/A

    In the proposed project the applicant will explore the development of a miniature MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer which combines for the first time the technologies of continuous flow (CF) MALDI with delayed ion extraction. The phase I studies will determine the compatibility of Bruker's unique CF interface and a recent Bruker invention for further improvements in delayed ion extraction. Experiments ...

  6. Staff Training in Information Management for Force XXI

    SBC: COGNITIVE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Recent cognitive research indicates that military teams operate effectively in high-stress, information-rich environments when they 1) share mental models of the battlefield situation and the team; 2) critique their situation model to develop clear goals for information retrieval; 3) effectively communicate information needs to others; and 4) anticipate and counteract information overload. We pro ...

  7. Interactions of Training and Decision Support: Measuring the Benefits in Trust, Situation Awareness, and Workload

    SBC: COGNITIVE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Inappropriate trust of automation can lead to suboptimal performance, in which the respective capabilities of humans and computers are not effectively exploited. In some cases, over- or under-reliance can lead to catastrophe. The primary objectives of the proposed Phase I work are (1) to develop a systematic general framework for training users of decision aids, with particular attention to the ...

  8. Methods for Pre-Flight Risk Assessment in Army Aviation

    SBC: Decision Science Associates            Topic: N/A

    Decision Science Associates, Inc. (DSA) proposes to design and prototype an automated decision aid for the assessment of pre-flight risk by Army rotorcraft pilots. This aid will support the rapid assessment of risk based on readily available information. Phase I consists of 4 tasks. In Task 1 we will identify sources of information and determine the critical predictive factors and the types of dat ...

  9. Rapid Inflation System Utilizing HMMWV Exhaust

    SBC: Federal-Fabrics-Fibers, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objectives of this study are to evaluate the potential use of the Hummer for structural support inflation and to design and build a prototype booster compatible with the Hummer and capable of delivering 65 psig at the highest possible flow rate. Determination of the time required to fill 10 arched shaped air beams 13" in diameter and 60' long will be made. Two cases will be evaluated: (1) fi ...

  10. Wide Span Air Beam

    SBC: Federal-Fabrics-Fibers, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The primary purpose of Wide Span Air Beams (WSAB) is to support a shelter that can be deployed very quickly. The primary limiting factor of a WSAB is the available fiber strength. To take full advantage of this strength the successful design needs to optimize beam diameter, inflation pressure and geometry. The relationships are complex but well understood. The high stress on the inside arch di ...
