  1. Fabrication of ZrC, HfC, TaC-based Fibrous Monolithic Ceramics for Rocket Propulsion Systems

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this program is to develop a low cost, flexible manufacturing method for the production of high temperature ceramic composites for rocket propulsion systems. The matrix materials selected for this program will be ZrC, HfC, and TaC. These-materials have good oxidation/corrosion and ablation resistance at elevated temperatures, but typically do not possess the thermal shock resistance an ...

  2. Titanium-Composite Body Armor Plates

    SBC: Advanced Protection Products,            Topic: N/A

    Advanced Protection Products, Inc. (APPI) will use advanced materials and processes to develop and certify Very Light Body Armor (VLBA) plates that are capable of defeating a variety of ballistic threats. The VLBA plates will be designed using a titanium allow based metallic-composite armor system to provide cost-effective, lightweight protection. Composite facing and backing materials will be u ...

  3. Electro-magnetic Flak for Cruise and Sea Skimming Missile Defense

    SBC: Applied Physical Electronics, L.C.            Topic: N/A

    The electromagnetic directed energy method (lasers, particle beams, and high power microwaves) of defending against missiles relies on generating a large amount of energy at the defense site, locating the target, and then transporting a large fraction of that energy to the target along a line of sight at the speed of light, to either destroy or destabilize the threat at as long range as possibl ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH HEAT FLUX HEAT EXCHANGER

    SBC: Applied Thermodynamic Systems            Topic: N/A

    GAS-TO-LIQUID HEAT EXCHANGERS FIND APPLICATION IN NEARLY EVERY ENERGY CONVERSION AND PROCESS SYSTEM. HOWEVER, DUE TO LOW HEAT FLUXES, THEY ARE EXCESSIVELY LARGE AND EXPENSIVE. LOW HEAT FLUXES ARE CAUSED PRIMARILY BY LOW GAS-SIDE HEAT TRANSFER COEFFICIENTS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDY IS TO DEVELOP A NOVEL FLUIDIZED BED HEAT EXCHANGER WHICH HAS SIGNIFICANTLY GREATER HEAT FLUXES THAN CONVENTIONAL HE ...

  5. Dynamic Firing Zone Imaging System

    SBC: Conceptual Systems & Software Inc            Topic: N/A

    An automated dynamic firing zone generation imaging system is needed to increase the effectiveness and utility of shipboard weapon systems. The current manual firing zone definition process is manpower intensive, complex, and cannot account for motion or changing topside configuration. These limitations greatly restrict the lethality and utility of shipboard weapons. This project proposes a dyna ...

  6. Unified HP/RT Development to Deployment Middleware Platform

    SBC: Conceptual Systems & Software Inc            Topic: N/A

    A significant problem for modern combat control system implementations is the incompatible development and deployment environments. These applications have specific performance requirements that until recently were only accurately obtained on the target installation system. However, for various logistic and economic reasons, the platforms utilized for advanced applications have typically been inc ...

  7. TERFENOL-D Lamination Process Cost Reduction

    SBC: Etrema Products, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    All high performance TERFENOL-D sonar devices require the drivers to be laminated for eddy current control. The process of laminating TERFENOL-D to present interlamina resistivity requirements results in low yields due to considerable material loss and is, therefore, a wasteful process. The objective of this program is to define and experimentally verify accurate interlamina resistivity levels f ...

  8. Alternative Substrates for Materials Integration

    SBC: EPITRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The recent demonstration of twist bonded GaAs substrates offers the potential to develop universally compliant substrates upon which almost any III-V or related semiconductor can be grown without lattice mismatch induced defect formation. Compliant substrates would rapidly expand and improve a number of device applications, such as Sb-based detectors and a wide range of InGaAlAsP devices, which ar ...

  9. Virtual Vertical Aircraft Signal Trainer

    SBC: FATS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AeroMed Software, L.L.C., proposes to develop an interactive virtual environment simulator for vertical aircraft signal training. The proposed system is intended to provide Landing Signal Enlisted (LSE) trainees with a dynamic training device similar to the operational flight trainers used by aviators. Recent advances in data acquisition, signal processing and graphics software, computer process ...
