  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. Ground-Penetrating Radar for Minefield Detection and Mapping

    SBC: Aes International Corp            Topic: N/A

    The AES International Corporation (AESI) of College Station, Texas, in concert with Texas A&M University personnel, can build an airborne ground-penetrating radar system to detect land mines from an Unmanned Airborne Vehicle (UAV). The radar itself will be a totally new and fully airworthy flight demonstration unit, the principles and characteristics of which will be conceptually similar to two p ...

  4. Fiber Optic Coupled Infrared Focal Plane Array (FOCIRFPA)

    SBC: Anawah, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AMI utilizes a technique known as the "ribbon wind" approach to manufacture infrared fiber image bundles. The ribbon wind approach provides a unique opportunity to manufacture relatively low cost, large format, medium resolution infrared fiberoptic image bundles for industrial, commercial and military applications. Indeed, this approach has been applied successfully by numerous fiberoptic manufa ...

  5. 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 ...

    SBIR Phase I 1996 Department of DefenseNavy

    SBC: Brennan & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The primary task output of Phase I will be the formulation of a LCC Model Requirements Specification describing the approach to be used in Phase II to develop a flexible, meaningful PC-based LCC model particularly sensitive to the Navy Aircraft Carrier application. The model specification will embody the results of extensive research into the carrier application, existing LCC models, and input dat ...

  7. Hp-Meshless Cloud Method for Dynamic Fracture in Fluid Structure Interaction

    SBC: Computational Mechan            Topic: N/A

    COMCO proposes to develop a new, meshless computational methodology for dynamic fracture simulation in fluid-structural interaction. Our approach is based on a new class of methods which eliminate all need for computational mesh of finite elements. This is accomplished by covering the computational domain by a cloud of points and using these points for discretiz- ation of the mathematical proble ...

  8. Innovative Lightweight Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) Fuel Injection System

    SBC: EVAN GUY ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to develop a lightweight fuel injection system for use with UAV Heavy-Fueled Engines. Current systems designed for automotive and diesel applications are not ideally suited to current small UAV HFE designs. The proper application and mapping of an injection system to an internal combustion engine has profound effects on engine performance. Current HFE trends indi ...
