  1. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The pressing need exists within industry to accurately measure high aspect ratio microscale structures. For example, diesel injector nozzles are manufactured with microscale holes ranging from 50-200 micrometers in diameter and 3-5 mm depths. One fundamental challenge is to nondestrucvely measure these features in order to validate models, enhance manufacturing processes, and reduce fuel emissions ...

  3. Low Cost Radio Based ID and Position Reporting System

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: A04111

    The US military has a developed and is testing several technologies that promise to reduce fratricide incidents on the battlefield. These Radio-Based Combat Identification Systems consist of specially modified, currently inventoried, military radio systems. These systems do not allow identification of friendly forces using commercial radio systems and, therefore, such personnel may be targeted. ...

  8. Detection of Munitions in Used Packing Materials

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: A04015

    Munitions and detonable residues of energetic materials in used munitions containers represent a significant safety hazard to operations personnel and equipment. Besides the possibility of containing unexploded munitions, munitions containers are contaminated with explosives residues ranging in concentration from surface contamination to mass detonable quantities of explosives. While trace surfa ...

  9. 3D Scaffold and Stem Cell Based Bioengineered Skin for Treatment of Cutaneous Vesicant Injury

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: CBD05117

    Vesicants have been used as chemical warfare agents since World War I and are still considered a major class of chemical threat agents both for the military and for homeland security. There are four different vesicating agents: impure sulfur mustard, distilled sulfur mustard, phosgene oxime, and lewisite. Among them, mustard is the most important militarily. The organs most commonly affected by ...

  10. Silica-Based Corrosion Protection Microcapsules

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: OSD04C04

    Painting metal provides excellent corrosion protection, as long as the paint remains intact. However, if the paint peels or becomes chipped after an impact, corrosion can occur in the revealed metallic area and even spread underneath the paint. Therefore, regular inspection and maintenance are required to ensure that the paint remains undamaged. Repairs may be required for damage that occurs betwe ...
