  1. Powder Injection Molding Processing Using Corn-based Biopolymers

    SBC: 8VA Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This program proposes to replace petroleum-based chemicals with formulations that are less expensive and safer to use in the environment. Critical to this goal is the incorporation of biopolymer additives require as binders for powder injection molding. Water soluble, cellulose-based polymers that have been processed from wood and cotton are also useful as binders in various ceramic manufacturin ...

  2. Reactor for Control of Fugitive Emissions of Toxic Gases

    SBC: Coyote Aerospace/high Mesa            Topic: N/A

    A need to control the fugitive emissions of hazardous vapors, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) has been identified in operations at Army plants and depots. The High Mesa Technologies (HMT)/Coyote Aerospace team proposes to meet this need using proven silent discharge plasma (SDP) techniques, developed by the Electric Power Research Institute and Los Alamos Nat ...

  3. Exploiting Artificial Intelligence to Improve After Action Reviews for the Digitized Company Team

    SBC: Lb&m Assoc., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Close Combat Tactical Trainer (CCTT) after-action review (AAR) system produces a standard set of statistical displays that trainers may use to debrief exercise participants. These displays are difficult to interpret and do not readily reveal to the player unit "WHAT happened" during the battle. If unit players are able to discern "WHAT happened", there are no correlating displays to provide ...

  4. Advanced Armor Vehicle Design

    SBC: Physics Mathematics &            Topic: N/A

    This project applies a combination of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN), Genetic Algorithms (GA), and CAD software to the problem of optimum armor design. Previous work for TACOM has established the efficacy of ANN/GA as applied to the problem of 1-D armor design. This new work will extend the concept to full 3-D vehicle geometries (CAD models). The CAD part of the code will handle the 3D data d ...

  5. Development and Validation of an Exogenous Metabolic Activation System for FETAX

    SBC: STOVER & ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Frog Embryo Teratogenesis Assay: Xenopus (FETAX) is a 96-h, whole-embryo bioassay designed to detect potential developmental toxicants. The primary goal of this research is to improve the predictability and increase the overall utility of FETAX as a screen for developmental toxicants that pose a hazard to human health. Since Xenopus laevis embryos lack mixed-fliriction oxidase metabolism (cytoch ...

  6. Integration of Performance Models Into Virtual Prototyping Environment

    SBC: TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An opportunity exists for performance models to be integrated into a continuous data flow process receiving data from design tool output and providing results to wargames used for analysis. Design tool outputs an providing results to wargames used for analysis. Design processes specify shape, configuration, materials, function and other required design components to achieve a conceptualized capab ...

  7. Low Temperature Processing of Boron Carbide Cement Composite for Tough, Wear Resistant Structures

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Natural materials such as tooth, bone or shell consist of a high volume fraction of ceramic grains coated by thin layers of proteinaceous film. The ceramic grains are grown in situ in a pre-formed organic polymer matrix. The organic portion provides high toughness, while the ceramic component provides stiffness. This unique microstructure allows for mechanical properties superior to man-made ce ...

  8. Porous Sol-Gel Derived Ceramic Release Agent

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Breathable release coatings that can withstand processing conditions up to 750F are needed for use on ceramic tooling. In situ removal of volatiles in solvent-based composite processing is a critical issue that will enable production of high quality parts at lower cost per part. Current release coatings meet neither the temperature nor the solvent transport requirements of solvent-based composit ...

  9. Non-Eroding Fin Materials

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

    This project will analyze and select promising materials and designs to be used in the plumes of tactical solid rocket motors for missile steering and control. The emphasis is on high-performance refractory materials and compatibility of material systems. The control fins experience severe thermal and severe particulate erosion environments. Missile controllability requires fins with minimal er ...

  10. Small Lot Repair/Manufacture of Microcircuit Boards by Laser Deposition

    SBC: Cm Consulting            Topic: N/A

    The final prototype of the Microcircuit Board Repair apparatus will be capable of laying down or lifting metal strips with micrometer dimensions. Under real time computer control, the translation stages will be fully automated or manually controlled. The end user will monitor the process in real time using a camera attached with the source. Laying down the metal lines will be done using Laser C ...
