  1. Electro-Optic Terminal Protection for Radar Systems

    SBC: ARC TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: MDA10T001

    Recent advances in directed energy weapons (DEW) require radar systems to implement front door protection against high power signals. Although nonlinear protection elements have been successfully employed in the past, fast ultra wideband (UWB) and high power microwave (HPM) signals are not successfully blocked by most current circuit protection technologies. This proposal details the develop ...

  2. POSS TCP Resin System for Carbon Fiber Reinforced Composite Shipboard Applications

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: N11AT014

    The proposed effort will utilize lithiated POSS in synergistic combination with commercial phosphates to achieve comparable processing characteristics and superior flame retardancy, smoke and toxicity to that of Derakane 510A. The POSS-phosphate synergist package will be formulated into a Hydrex nonhalogenated vinylester resin and superior mechanical properties (interlaminar shear strength and car ...

  3. Bimetallic Nanoparticle Catalysts for Reforming of Logistics Fuels

    SBC: NanoScale Materials, Inc.            Topic: A09AT018

    High efficiency, low pollution, and long lifetime make hydrogen-powered fuel cells desirable for portable power generation by the Army. However, it is impractical to transport hydrogen to where it is needed. Instead, reforming a transportable liquid fuel such as JP-8 or diesel fuel can produce the hydrogen for the fuel cell. Noble metal catalysts can speed this reforming, but they are expensive an ...

  4. Low-Cost Tooling as Enabling Technology for Drastic Cost Reductions of DLA Parts

    SBC: Nevada Composites, Inc.            Topic: DLA10001

    The ultimate objective of the work outlined in this proposal is to develop, demonstrate and commercialize a new technology for accurate, rapid, low-cost tooling for discreet parts manufacturing of high-performance composite components. This tooling results from a new tool-production process and is suitable for prototyping, repair,

  5. WASP-III Advanced Reconnaissance Device Network (WARDN)

    SBC: MAV6            Topic: SB111004

    The WASP-III Advanced Reconnaissance Device Network (WARDN) is a miniaturized VHF/UHF emitter geolocation system targeted for installation on micro-UAV platforms. The Mav6 design approach of embedded antenna design, compact RF circuit design, and load balancing the signal processing and geolocation tasks between the airborne payload and the ground unit enables significant size, weight, and power ...

  6. Direct Plasma Production from Electric Solid Propellant for High Velocity Launch Systems

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: SB112002

    As an alternative to double-base propellants we propose electric solid propellants (ESP) as a safe, green, higher performance alternative to double-base propellants for high velocity electro thermal chemical (ETC) canons. These new energetic materials are inherently safe, with ignition only possible via the sustained supply of electrical power and not by spark, flame or even bullet impact. A maj ...

  7. Improved Thrust Termination Modeling for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: MDA10022

    To improve the predictive capabilities of solid rocket motor end-of-burn phenomena, two analysis tools will be further developed. An existing engineering tool will go through continued development and validation, while an existing solid rocket ballistics model, built and demonstrated within a commercial CFD platform, will be expanded to allow for conjugate heat transfer between the burning grain ...

  8. Anion Exchange Polymer Membranes Based on Polyoctahedral Silsesquioxanes for Alkaline Fuel Cells

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: OSD10EP6

    Polyhedral silsesquioxanes (POSS) will be modified using chloromethylation of aromatic POSS cages. These cages will then be co-cast, using solvent, with chloromethylated polysulfones and subsequently quaternized with monofunctional and difunctional trialkylamines in order to render crosslinked films containing the cage-structures. Subsequent alkalization will form anion exchange membranes with hi ...

  9. High Energy Density and High Power Density Thermal Energy Storage

    SBC: Rocky Research            Topic: AF103163

    Thermal energy storage for load smoothing can be beneficial in applications having large transient heat load compared to steady-state heat rejection. Laser weapons and high-power microwave generators are examples where TES can help. Ammoniated complex compound systems can provide heat absorption due to exothermic dissociation of the complex compound. Very high energy density and power density T ...

  10. Advanced Analysis and Design Tool for Scramjet Air-frame Propulsion Integration

    SBC: Flow Modeling and Simulation            Topic: AF112004

    ABSTRACT: Flow Modeling and Simulation proposes to develop a code designated Scramjet Simulation Tool (SCRAMSIM) to provide a powerful multi-level tool suitable for tight integration into the design, test and evolution cycle. The code will be based on the HEAT3D code. SCRAMSIM will be designed to reduce risks and costs, compress schedules (short term) and enhance physics insight (long term) by ...
