  1. Lethality Enhancement of Hit-to-Kill Interceptors

    SBC: General Sciences, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Although the "hit-to-kill" technology has shown promise in recent field tests, complete destruction/neutralization of biological submunitions cannot be guaranteed. The subject effort proposes a new concept which enhances the lethality of hit-to-kill interceptors by a synergistic combination of (a) enhanced energy due to a non-parasitic chemical component provided by reactive structural components ...

  2. Lightweight Cryogenic Power Supply for Mobile Military Applications

    SBC: HESTON CONSULTING CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    BMD0 is interested in developing new electrical power system technologies that provide lighter, smaller, lower cost, more efficient and reliable power supplies for a variety of mobile or transportable systems, such as the proposed Ground Based Radar (GBR). Conventional power generation equipment technology will not be adquate to meet the size, weight and efficiency goals of these new systems. Cryo ...

  3. Low Cost, High Thermal Conductivity Electronic Packaging Material

    SBC: k Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Thermal Management has become the limiting factor in the advancement of many electronic systems. Current thermal management materials have either reached their performance limits or are impractical due to high costs. As applications for high density, high clock rate electronics increase, new cooling techniques and materials are required to allow low cost, high reliability operation. Technology ...

  4. Pultrusion Processes for Producing Composite Structures

    SBC: LAWRIE TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: N/A

    The widespread use of advanced composites has been severely impeded by the lack of an economical fabrication technology. The advantages of the Pultrusion Process in this regard have long been recognized by the composite community, and part shaping of pultuded sections has been identified as a promising means of producing a range of structural components in recent cost modeling initiatives (NASA/AC ...

  5. Advanced Metal Powder Manufacture for MLCC Applications

    SBC: NANOCHEM RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Sensors, capacitors, and conducting features such as resistors and capacitors on circuit boards are produced from metal and ceramic powders 1-12 These powders are manufactured by liquid phase precipitation routes which often start with reduction of metal salts or by solid-state routes where solid reactants are mixed, heated and then milled. The solid-state processing is generally repeated several ...

  6. Advanced Fasteners for Low Cost Airframe Assembly and Repair


    This SBIR proposes the development of the 3/16 inch diameter "Wing-It" blind fastener. This effort will include fastening both aluminum and composite sheet material. The technical objective is to demonstrate a low-cost fastener for future aircraft as an alternative to production fasteners. The "Wing-It" fastener distributes the load in the joint over a much larger area than conventional fastene ...

  7. Embedded Sensors via Laser Engineered Net Shaping

    SBC: OPTOMEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Optomec Design Company proposes to use Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENSTM), a Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing (RP&M) technology currently under development at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), as a new method for integrating instrumentation (e.g., embedded sensors) into metal structural components. SNL has demonstrated the ability of the LENSTM technology to produce near net shape stainles ...

  8. EMP Shielding Using Multilayer Film

    SBC: Sensortex            Topic: N/A

    Conventional shielding techniques for an electromagnetic pulse use high permeability magnetic materials. Such materials have limited effectiveness once they are saturated. A new approach for shielding has been identified using a layered film structure where the shielding actually increases after the magnetic film saturates. These results are based on the use of a new computer code which predicts ...

  9. Novel Matrix Addressable Sonar Transducer

    SBC: Sensortex            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I will fabricate a new transducer element, which is matrix addressable, conformable and low cost. It is based on the use of a composite magnetoelectric film fabricated as a hollow cylinder. This cylinder contains both the sensing elements and the matrix-forming element. This approach builds on previous work on a composite laminar maggetoelectric mat ...

    SBC: THERMACORE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The following proposal describes a conceptual thermionic converter configuration and operating mode which, if successfully developed could provide 12-15% efficiwent thermionic energy conversion at cathode temperatures below 1500K. The concept builds on experimental work done in the United States on "Hybrid-mode" converters, and on improvements made in the Former Soviet Union which demonstrated gre ...
