  3. Nano Alumina Air Filtration Media

    SBC: ARGONIDE CORP.            Topic: CBD05102

    NanoCeramr filtration media has been developed for purification of water. The active component is a nano alumina fiber only 2 nanometers in diameter. When dispersed with microglass fibers as part of a non-woven fibrous filter it is capable of retaining sub-micron and nanosize particles smaller than virus while maintaining a high flux. Such media has a dirt holding capacity tens of times greater ...

  5. Innovative Manufacturing Process Improvements—CVD TiC Coating on Precision Bearing Balls

    SBC: BRYCOAT, INC.            Topic: MDA04035

    The United States faces the risk of losing a technology vital to national security. Coatings of Titanium Carbide (TiC) applied by a novel Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) Process are applied to the balls used in ball bearings in several important strategic and tactical missile defense systems. A Swiss company was the sole source of these coatings and their production capability has now been phase ...

  6. Space Qualifiable Laser Technology

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04005

    High average power lasers are necessary for space-based missions such as long-range sensing and directed energy weapons. Such long-range sensors typically require kW-class power with low intensity noise, diffraction limited beam quality, and high efficiency. In order to meet these and other requirements, CTI is pursuing an innovative laser technology to kW-class average power with new levels of ...

  7. Multispectral Lidar for Plume Particle Characterization

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04145

    As active ladar systems become more and more common in missile defense roles, the need for accurate missile signature models increases. Laser radars are currently being pursued for tracking of boosting missiles due to the obvious benefits of clutter rejection and increased precision over passive systems. However, the interaction of laser light with a missile's plume is a complex process that is ...

  10. Unstructured Fixed Grid with Moving Body, Navier-Stokes Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) Solver for Simulating Gas Flows

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA04136

    The development of a generalized moving body capability for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) flow simulations of highly transient flowfields is critical to system analyses of Divert and Attitude Control Systems (DACS) for Kinetic Warheads (KWs). Testing capabilities are limited in the DACS operating regime; therefore, computational tools are essential for such analyses. The flow in the DACS its ...
