  1. Reactive Finish Formulation for Improving Interfacial Bonding in Carbon/Vinyl Ester Composites

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N04094

    The interface is often a limiting factor in determining the durability of composite materials used in harsh environments. Attaining a well-bonded interface is particularly difficult with low-temperature curing matrix resin systems. A need exists for a carbon fiber adhesion promoting finish that is compatible with vinyl ester chemistry. Prior work using reactive coupling agent chemistries modifi ...

  2. Asbestos Stabilization Foam

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N04097

    Asbestos insulation material has been used in shipboard environments for many years. While the material is usually safe when left undisturbed, it becomes a major health hazard during removal. The fine, needle like crystals that can be released into the air during handling are inhaled into the deep parts of the lung where they are known to cause cancer. Current removal procedures require a compl ...

  3. High Temperature Finishes/Sizings for Polyimide Matrix Composites

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N04251

    New high temperature sizings are needed that are compatible with resin infusion processes to improve the properties and durability of carbon/polyimide composites. Compatibility with resin infusion processes includes compatibility with weaving and braiding operations and improved wetting with the infusing polyimide resin. Achieving these characteristics will result in reducing life cycle costs. ...

  4. Electromagnetic Susceptibility Threshold Distributions Tools for Electronic Systems

    SBC: ADVANCED ELECTROMAGNETICS            Topic: N04055

    A method of determining electromagnetic susceptibility thresholds for chaotic and non-chaotic field environments is proposed. Field sets and coupled current sets are decomposed into non-chaotic and chaotic components via projection onto deterministic models of the coupled structures. Rather than assume field distributions a priori, ensembles of field data are generated from which statistical pro ...

  5. Smart Tether for Relative Localization of Moored and Towed Bodies

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N04T020

    Determining a geo-reference of an underwater object is a critical requirement for marine applications such as mine-hunting and marine surveying. Although a GPS fix can be obtained at the surface, the watch circle of a tether connecting a surface and underwater body can impose positional errors that are far greater than GPS errors. Here we propose to develop a technology to automatically determin ...

  6. Algorithms for Rapid and Accurate Depth Localization of Targets for Mine Avoidance

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N04218

    The US Navy's new DD(X) destroyer currently under design features amongst its extensive sensor suite an innovative dual (high frequency and mid-frequency) frequency, active bow sonar. One of the primary missions of the high frequency (HF) component of the bow-sonar will be in-stride mine avoidance. Advanced signal processing algorithms, developed for predecessor sonars aboard modern US submarine ...

  7. Non-Plane-Wave noise source localization for horizontal arrays at low frequency in very shallow water (VSW)

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N04T011

    Localizing low frequency noise sources in shallow water using a horizontal array is complicated by waveguide dispersion and maneuverability constraints. If the dispersive properties of the sound propagation channel are well known, waveguide effects can be used advantageously for the purpose of localizing sources without requiring a relative change in bearing to the target. Here we propose to inve ...

  8. Electro Magnetic Probability of Effect (EMPE)

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: N04055

    The Navy is required to demonstrate the immunity of its ordnance and electronic systems to electromagnetic threats. Simple pass/fail testing is no longer adequate for demonstrating compliance in a field environment increasingly characterized by high power transmission. The Electro-Magnetic Probability of Effect (EMPE) tools proposed in this SBIR will enable the Navy to design new systems and asses ...

  9. Exploratory Development of a Small, Light-Weight, Electro-Turbo-Compound Diesel Engine for Hybrid Electric Drives

    SBC: D-Star Engineering Corporation            Topic: N02115

    The proposed SBIR Phase II effort by D-STAR Engineering Corporation addresses the highest risk technologies necessary for the development of a unique light-weight, heavy-fueled 24 - 30 hp class hybrid-electric propulsion system for UGVs. The two most critical technologies are : 1) development of a compact, light-weight, fuel-efficient engine to operate on JP-8 and other heavy fuels; and 2) devel ...

  10. Extremely Power Dense Bipolar Nickel-Metal Hydride Energy Storage System

    SBC: Mobile Energy Products, Inc.            Topic: N04T009

    The project focuses on the development of an extremely power dense bipolar nickel-metal hydride energy storage system for the Rotary Electromagnetic Launcher (REML). The program centers on optimizing the design of EEI's bipolar battery using very thin electrode materials. The performance goals for the battery are to achieve power densities over 8 kW/L. This would represent a complete power syst ...
