The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Catalytic Conversion Recycling Process for Composite Aircraft Components

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cured aircraft composite materials present a particularly difficult challenge for recycling technology. Those materials have mostly thermosetting epoxy matrices and occur in intimate association with metals, paints, and coatings. Current techniques for recycling thermoset composites, mostly for automotive sheet molding compounds (SMC), involve pulverizing the material for use as fillers. Th ...

  2. Tertiary Recycling Process for Shipboard Plastic Processor Product

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A novel tertiary recycling process is proposed for investigation as an economical means for recycling shipboard plastic waste. Early development work has shown that this process can convert a wide variety of polymers and composites into low molecular weight hydrocarbons at temperatures below 200'C. The hydrocarbons produced can then be reused as chemicals, fuels, or monomers. Metal, glass, and fil ...

  3. Methodology to Predict Ballistic Penetration and Damage of Composite Laminated Structures

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Current utilization of composite materials in air and surface weapons systems and structures is extensive, and the use of these materials can be expected to increase in the future. Weapons effectiveness assessments and the design of protective structures require methodologies to predict the terminal ballistic interactions between projectiles and fragments penetrating composite laminated target st ...

  5. Multi-dimensional, user-oriented synthetic environment(Muse): A standard synthetic environment system for virtual prototyping

    SBC: MUSE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a simulation system that integrates CAD/CAM/CAT tools into a Virtual Manufacturing Environment, and to demonstrate the proof of concept. The proposed system will be based on the demonstrated functionality of Multi-dimensional, user-oriented Synthetic Environment, UuSE (pronounced "muse'). Developed at Sandia National Laboratories by UuSE Technologies, Inc. (principals a ...

  6. Investigation of a Hybrid Electromagnetics Test Facility

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    A feasibility and optimization investigation is proposed for electromagnetic immunity and emission testing over the frequency regime of 10 KHz to 18 GHz. The proposed facility combines the cost-effective performance features of a TEM cell and a reverberation chamber. The feasibility investigation emphasizes the reduction of test result uncertainty in transition region between the upper limit of a ...

  7. High Power Multi-Layer Frequency Selective Filters

    SBC: Shield Rite, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SHIELD RITE proposes to utilize a finite difference, time domain model of the multilayer frequency selective surface (FSS) to examine how the bandwidth and the angular dependence of the reflection (or transmission) coefficient depend upon the number of layers and the spacing between the layers. We shall then look at the power handling capabilities of these filters by examining the electric fields ...

  8. Compact System for Safe Removal of Conformal Coatings from Electronic Printed Circuit Boards

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    An important need for the US Navy and other military services is the effective field repair of electronic printed circuit boards which have been sealed with conformal coatings. Repair of the ekK*Wk circuit boards by replacing components first requires removal of the conformal coating without damaging the other components on the board. Tetra Corporation proposes to adapt our proven coatings re ...

  9. Reclamation Reuse of Pyrotechnic Ingredients

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Navy has over 14,000 tons of pyrotechnic flares and smoke munitions forecasted to enter the Resource Recovery and Disposition stockpile by FY 2001. Disposal of pyrotechnics is now limited to open burning by controlled incineration. Processes to demil these munitions while recovering Valuable constituents are needed. TPL is the leading company in the development of demilitarization resource re ...

  10. Volatile Non-Toxic Compounds as Fuel Combustion Inhibitors

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Weapon payloads are needed to degrade an adversary's military capability while minimizing the destructive effect on civilian populations. A payload which inhibits operation of internal combustion engines while having no destructive impact on human beings would meet a variety of non-lethal weapon requirements. Immobilization of engines by uptake of fuel combustion inhibitor (FCI) compounds, tailor ...
