  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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Missile Battery Damage Prediction Methodology

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

    Warhead design calculations and weapons effectiveness estimates require a methodology to predict the terminal ballistic structural response and the associated functional damage to operating missile batteries subjected to warhead fragment impacts at speeds up to 16,000 ft/sec. The objectives for the proposed Phase I study effort are to develop a candidate structural representation for the missile b ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Real-Time and Fault-Tolerant Open Architecture for Combat Systems

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

    We propose to develop a layered real-time and fault-tolerant CORBA-based software architecture as a means to realizing an open standards-based middleware for Naval combat systems. The key features of our approach are (1) a low-level interface to a distributed network infrastructure consisting of an integrated real-time and fault-tolerant extension to CORBA patterned after existing and emerging COR ...

  8. High-Rate Single Event Combustion Diagnostics

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

    Applied Research Associates, Inc. (ARA) proposes to develop a high-speed optical pyrometer which can be used on impact tests of reactive materials with metal plates where flash radiography equipment is in use. The unit will measure five narrow spectral bands of light and use their ratios to determine the temperature of the area of interest. It will also utilize an internal video camera to allow ...

  9. High Power Switch

    SBC: Central Connecticut            Topic: N/A

    Central Connecticut Engineering, Inc. proposes to develop the design of a high-power, high-repetition-rate switch for manufacturing. The switch will be capable of continuous operation at 100,000 volts, 100 kilowatts of average power, 100 joules per pulse, and 1000 hertz pulse rates into a low impedance load. The switch inductancee minimized, as consistent with the other requirements, and the capab ...

  10. Novel Near Infrared Fluorescent Dyes

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    We will use two approaches to produce new near infrared (nir) dyes for use as fluorescent probes for biological sensing. The first approach will build on the experience of the laboratory of Dr. Leslie Loew in the development of fluorescent dyes based on the aminostyryl pyridinium chromophore and its analogs. These dyes have extraordinary Stokes shifts and, when bound to biological macromolecules ...
