  1. Carbon Nanotube Plasma Limiter

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: MDA06034

    The enabling solid state semiconductor technology in modern electronics and radar systems increases their vulnerability to the effects of high power, fast rise-time EMP, HPM, and UWB pulses. In recent years, significant advances in the technology used to produce these pulses have been made in the United States and abroad, increasing the need for effective protection against these threats. Howeve ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Advanced Flywheel Energy Storage

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: SB092017

    Applying multivariable optimization in conjunction with modern materials technology has revealed an opportunity to dramatically improve flywheel energy storage technology. Using this innovative approach, GTL’s Advanced Flywheel™ could deliver 500 W-hr/kg with the potential to achieve in excess of 1000 W-hr/kg. This represents a substantial increase in performance over conventional high-perfo ...

  4. Cryo-composite Tank for HyperBAT

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: SB091013

    To achieve the high propellant mass fraction (PMF) required by future high energy propulsion systems, light-weight propellant tanks are essential. GTL’s Supra-tanks™ can approach the theoretical performance limit for carbon fiber pressure vessels using cryogenic or room-temperature propellants. By combining the Blended Hybrid Laminate™ (BHL™) technology with aspects of the Highly Integra ...

  5. Small Engines Designed for High Efficiency, High Power Density and Quiet Operations

    SBC: IRON BAY MODEL COMPANY            Topic: SB082010

    A new approach is needed to bypass the problems which have thus far limited the development of small heavy-fuel engines. Typically these compromised engine designs are hard to start, they do not burn the fuel cleanly or completely, their ignition timing is inconsistent, their high peak pressures result in short component lifecycles, they produce excessive emissions, their fuel consumption is high ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. A Sensor for Relative Position and Attitude Determination

    SBC: Radio-Hydro-Physics LLC            Topic: SB072039

    Radio-Hydro-Physics LLC will design, fabricate, test and demonstrate a Sensor, based on Dispersed Fourier Transform Spectrometer (DFTS) technology, which will be light-weight, less than one-half cubic foot in size, without moving parts, with low power requirements, suitable for operation on a host satellite in prototype form, and capable of determining the relative range and attitude (pose or orie ...

  8. Development of Multi-layer Aluminum Alloys for Armor

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: A09AT010

    The proposed STTR Phase I study is aimed at exploring lightweight and multi-layer materials towards enhancing their armor performance. Different Al alloys will be assembled into a two-layer configuration with good metallic bond between inter-layers. 2139-T8 Al alloy evolved by efforts of Alcan and the Army Research Laboratory will be selected as one of the layers in the laminated assembly. 5083, 7 ...

  9. Crack Nucleation Prediction through Surface Roughness Measurement

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: SB072003

    Reusable life models rely on a large empirical database and require a lengthy development process. The models must be reconstructed for each new geometric and loading application. Rather than using empirical fatigue data to fit the model, the VEXTEC approach uses the intrinsic microstructure properties of the material and needs very little calibration testing. In Phase I, VEXTEC used the model to ...
