  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. Large-Scale Configurable Gripper for Ordnance Handling Robot

    SBC: AGILE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Initiatives undertaken by the U.S. Navy will dramatically change the nature of large-caliber shipboard gun systems deployed in the next decade for naval surface fire support. In addition to significant advances in ammunition, such as the development of course-correcting rocket-assisted shells and precision terminal guidance systems, basic gun and magazine designs are undergoing fundamental change ...

  3. Real-Time and Fault-Tolerant Open Architecture for Combat Systems

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

    We propose to develop a layered real-time and fault-tolerant CORBA-based software architecture as a means to realizing an open standards-based middleware for Naval combat systems. The key features of our approach are (1) a low-level interface to a distributed network infrastructure consisting of an integrated real-time and fault-tolerant extension to CORBA patterned after existing and emerging COR ...

  4. High-Rate Single Event Combustion Diagnostics

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

    Applied Research Associates, Inc. (ARA) proposes to develop a high-speed optical pyrometer which can be used on impact tests of reactive materials with metal plates where flash radiography equipment is in use. The unit will measure five narrow spectral bands of light and use their ratios to determine the temperature of the area of interest. It will also utilize an internal video camera to allow ...

    SBC: Digital Interface Systems,            Topic: N/A

    Digital Interface Systems, Inc. (DIS), proposes to develop a methodology to automate the archival of electronic schematics in electronic format that is compatible to the Department of Defense (DoD) Automatic Test Systems (ATS) Computer Aided Design (CAD) database standards. DIS proposes two steps to develop the process as required in the description of this Solicitation: under the Phase I of this ...

  6. High Cooling Gain, high rate turbo product codes (TPCs) for Robust Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) Systems


    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project proposes to study the feasibility of producing, in hardware, a class of forward error-correcting codes which are vastly superior to any currently available. These Turbo Product Codes (TPCs) are ideally suited to communications systems where large coding gain is required, but only a limited overhead is acceptable. The best TPC evaluated ...

  7. Utilization of Glass Bead Blasting Wastes to Yield a Salable Product

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Reductions in hazardous waste materials disposal is an area that continues to carry National urgency. Wastes generated from glass bead abrasive blasting operations contain heavy metals and other constituents which can result in a hazardous waste classification. The work outlined here proposes to utilize the glass bead wastes as a raw material in a process to reduce and react heavy metals wa ...

  8. Frontier Technology, Inc.

    SBC: FRONTIER TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: N/A

    Digital surveillance of surface and underwater battlefields is complicated by the complexity of the environment, stealth of various threats, and lack of a comprehensive single imaging sensor technology. Therefore, the fusion of multiple sensors inputs of differing type and response characteristics is necessary to achieve coverage in space, time, spectral wavelength and sensing modality. A ...

  9. Improved Formability of Aluminum Aircraft Skin Panels via Electromagnetic Forming

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

    IAP Research proposes to eliminate this costly preliminary heat treating step by using Electromagnetic Forming (EF), a high rate forming process to form aluminum aircraft skin panels in the T4 or T6 condition. EM forming uses electromagnetic forces generated on the aluminum workpiece by a closely coupled magnetic field coil to accelerate the aluminum sheet to velocities of nearly 200 m/s. Recent ...

  10. A Demonstration of an Intelligent IO-to-N Interface

    SBC: NEXT GENERATION SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Today's network technologies easily reach 1 Gbit/sec bandwidths, but current IO board products based on these Gbit network technologies cannot harness that bandwidth. We have already developed an Intelligent IO-to-N (IION) interface. The IION interface allows any modern high-speed IO bus (e.g., PCI) to be interconnected to any modern Network protocol (e.g., SCI, Fibre Channel, ATM). The interface' ...
