  1. Fast-acting, Compact, Piezoelectric Actuator for Control of Mini-Interceptor

    SBC: DYNAMIC STRUCTURES AND MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    "Missile defense could benefit from miniature interceptor technology to handle difficult countermeasure problems and to be able to intercept multiple objects. Reduction in size, mass, and cost of the interceptor compels a new design for projectile steeringcomponents. DSM identified a potential steering actuator system for mini-interceptor platforms while working with ATK. The steering system is ...

  2. High Power Rotary Actuator for Kinetic Energy Weapons

    SBC: DYNAMIC STRUCTURES AND MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    "Proposed is the design and development of a high power rotary piezoelectric driveninchworm actuator. The design is essentially an inchworm motor, but it takesadvantage of a novel clamping mechanism to provide very high levels of output force.The clamping mechanism designed by DSM allows the actuator to capitalize on the veryhigh power to weight ratio available in piezoelectric actuators. The si ...

  3. Design of Superelastic Nitinol Enhanced Puncture Resistant Armor

    SBC: Garman Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Proposed is an investigation into the use of flexible, extremely strong and tough, superelastic Nitinol shape memory alloy as a means of dramatically improving puncture resistance for personnel body armor. The Nitinol material is proposed as a surface material or coating for reinforcement or organic fiber fabrics and/or composites or aramid and UHMW polyethylene used in the current body armor sys ...

  5. Integrated Remote Patient Care System

    SBC: Microdexterity Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MicroDexterity Systems was founded by Steve Charles, MD to develop systems for dexterity enhancement for microsurgery; a concept he originated in the mid 80's. Dexterity enhancement is a subset of tele-operation. The MDS mission statement was broadened in 1994 to address the problem of non-ferromagnetic tele-operation for intra-operative magnetic resonance imaging frequently called image guided ...

  6. Dynamically Tunable Photonic Bandgap Crystal Components

    SBC: TESLA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Periodic photonic bandgap crystal (PBC) structures channel electromagnetic waves much as semiconductors/quantum wells channel electrons. PBCs are fabricated by arranging sub-wavelength alternating materials with high and low dielectric constants to producea desired effective bandgap. Photons with energy within this bandgap cannot propagate through the structure. This property has made these struc ...

  7. On-board, Prognostic Micro-Structural Reliability Tool for Mechanical Systems

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Technology for extending the life of fielded systems offers the potential for signification saving in total ownershipcosts. On-board monitoring and analysis offers the potential to instill increased confidence in prediction of fatigue or remaining usefullife on an individual system basis. This, in turn, offers the potential to reduce premature part retirement. The Phase I project demonstrated t ...

  8. Composite Design Tool for Predicting Performance, Reliability and Cost as Integrated Functions

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    "The commercial sector is developing stronger, lighter, and cheaper materials for use in structural applications. However it needs to be verified that the use of these materials will enhance missile defense systems reliability. Engineers generally do nothave a significant amount of data relative to the reliability of the design until an extensive amount of testing is conducted. Very often, even in ...
