  1. Medium Caliber Gun Barrel Bore Coatings

    SBC: ADVANCED GLOBAL SERVICES, LTD            Topic: AF06350

    Patented EPVD® process has been bench-marked by DOD programs as a fit substitute for Chrome plating. Both laboratory and field firing tests have displayed excellent performance of EPVD®-applied coatings. The objective of the proposed work is to continue the investigation and development of the EPVD® technology and coatings to improve application quality and consistency with the goal of ac ...

  2. Material and Process Specification Optimization

    SBC: RELIACOAT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF141208

    Thermal spray process has many inherent complexities within each sub-process including feedstock manufacturing, component surface preparation and masking, torch parameter selection, robot trajectory and laboratory coating evaluation. Each sub-process is governed by rigid specifications that provide thermal spray applicators with procedural and process guidelines throughout the application. Current ...

  3. Microstructural Treatment of Munitions Cases to Improve Performance

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: AF181042

    The US Air Force seeks new technologies to improve the fragmentation performance of legacy munitions. Traditional approaches for controlled fragmentation consist of notches or grooves on the order of 1-10 mm to control the fragment size distribution and shape. However, for USAF, new methods are needed that do not significantly alter the surface of the munitions casing to meet flight safety require ...

  4. Novel Battle Damage Assessment Using Sensor Networks

    SBC: VIGILANT CYBER SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: AF181019

    Vigilant Cyber Systems, Inc. proposed to design and develop the Electromagnetic Battle Damage Assessment Tool (EMBDAT) to assess the effects of high-power electromagnetic (HPEM) attack using sensor data from the system under attack (target system) and other known quantities about the target and weapon. It is designed to integrate with a variety of sensors and provides an application programming in ...

  5. Microstructurally-Based Constitutive Models for Composite Energetic Materials

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: AF182084

    Comprehensive energetic models that capture the constitutive response, evolve the microstructural damage, and predict the resulting reactive response are critical to the continued development of large-scale penetrators. In Phase I, Corvid demonstrated the ability of the Coupled Damage and Reaction (CDAR) reactive burn model to simulate the evolution of the microstructure in composite energetic mat ...

  6. Propulsion Aero-Engine Coating Digital Thread

    SBC: RELIACOAT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF192001

    Thermal spray coating operating for engines in both OEM and maintenance/repair/overhaul (MRO) involves many sub-steps and sub-processes from preparatory to processing to qualifications. Typically, most coating operators (internal or external to the OEM/MRO) follow established procedural specifications to achieve the required outcome. However, many of these specifications were developed several dec ...

  7. Immediate Decontamination Kit for Military Working Dogs in Fields

    SBC: Zymeron Corporation            Topic: CBD192001

    Military Working Dogs (MWDs) provide a valuable asset to military troops, police, and other government agencies. In recent years, the increasing deployments of MWDs in different tactical environments make them encounter much higher risk from exposure to a range of hazardous chemicals, including chemical warfare agents (CWAs), toxic industrial chemicals (TICs), and narcotics. Since there is no prot ...

  8. Optically-gated GaN switches for aircraft electrical actuator motor drives

    SBC: Adroit Materials            Topic: AF192051

    The overall objective of this proposal is to develop a solar-blind Al/GaN-based OBT with sensitivity in the UV (< 365 nm) for applications in actuators operated by power-by-wire technology. The devices will incorporate three key technologies: (a) growth on single crystal GaN substrates resulting in superior reliability and low threading dislocation related leakage, compensation and failure, (b) p- ...

  9. High Responsivity Lateral GaN Switch

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF192051

    With its wide band gap allowing high voltages, high currents, and high temperatures, compensated gallium nitride (GaN) is a good candidate for constructing optically triggered switches that can operate at high voltage, current, and temperature. To achieve high responsivity GaN-based switches are often triggered with above bandgap photons, which are difficult to obtain at sufficient fluxes and in s ...

  10. TelEOSARus: Combining SAR and EO in Telesculptor

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: AF193009

    Anti-access and area denial environments (A2/AD) can present a challenge when frequent observations are needed to determine changes in the region over time. This is particularly problematic when one is interested in the three-dimensional structure of the area of interest. 3D models reconstructed from 2D electro-optical (EO) images can provide a fairly complete model of a region but the number of o ...
