  1. Affordability-driven, Microwave Curing for Reversible Bonding of Composites

    SBC: AEROTECH ENGINEERING & RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Fastening and joining technology has lagged behind the progress that has been made in other areas of composites for advanced air vehicles. Aerotech proposes the development of reversible polymeric adhesive bonding of composites using variable frequency microwave energy. With this method, composites are bonded using Poly Ether Ether Ketone (a high temperature thermoplastic) which is cured using v ...

  2. WinChem: A Tool for Evaluation of High-Temperature Structural Material Stability in Extreme Environments

    SBC: Computherm, LLC            Topic: N/A

    CompuTherm, LLC proposes to develop WinChem, an innovative and user-friendly computer program integrated with a thermodynamic database, to provide a significant new capability to rapidly determine chemical equilibrium necessary to evaluate the stability of high-temperature structural materials under corrosive (generally oxidative) conditions. The lack of this capability has been an obstacle to th ...

  3. Improved Capacitor Using Amorphous RuO2

    SBC: EVANS CAPACITOR COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    Amorphous hydrous ruthenium oxide(Ru02.xH20A) has a specific capacitance at least two times larger than any other known capacitor materials. An object of this proposal is to demostrate the feasibility of producing shock-hardened RuO2. H2O based electrochemical capacitors suitable for use in power sources for advanced weapon system applications. A 25 V, 150 mF shock-hardened electrochemical capa ...

  4. Rocket Engine Analysis Codes on the Internet

    SBC: JOHNSON ROCKETS            Topic: N/A

    We propose starting a commercial Internet website that will provide access to a variety of computer codes for the purpose of analyzing rocket engines and rocket engine components. Users will be able to execute well-maintained computer codes over the Internet. The codes found on the website will be an improvement on what is currently available since they will be maintained and upgraded by a conso ...

  5. Applying ICARUS to Task Scheduling of the Air Force's Satellite Control Network

    SBC: Lawrence Applied Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a proof-of-concept system that implements an innovative methodology to diagnose and repair unknown satellite anomalies. Our system is based on a novel approach that integrates Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) with Utility Theory. The resulting system deals with unknown and missing information, and selects from a case base the plans or actions that will either fix the satellite or will ...

  6. Advanced Analytic Sonic Boom Underwater Propagation Analysis

    SBC: Marine Acoustics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Federal regulations require that USAF supersonic, subsonic and launch vehicle flight operations be assessed as to possible effects to the near-shore environment. Current modeling capability for this topic is lacking in key areas: reliability of results, environmental assessment requirements, field validation, biological nature of the receiver, and accounting for the key interface boundary condit ...

  7. Reactive Nanoparticles as Destructive Adsorbents for Biolog

    SBC: NanoScale Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this Phase I is to demonstrate the use of Reactive Nanoparticles (RNP) for the decontamination/sterilization of biological agents and their mimics. Recent studies have shown that RNPs are very effective for chemical agent decontamination at ambient or higher temperature. Examples include paraoxon, VX, half mustard and HD. RNPs themselves are generally made of non-toxic magnesiu ...

  8. Advanced Piezoelectric-Positioner Controller for High-Speed Scanning Probe Microscopy

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

    This SBIR Phase I project will investigate the feasibility of an improved control strategy for piezoelectric positioners used in scanned-probe microscopes (SPMs) to increase their speed and reliability for nanocharacterization. Rapid nanocharacterization requires fast motion of the scanned piezo probe with sub-Angstrom vertical resolution and with frequent rapid changes in its axial position. Se ...

  9. Radio Frequency (RF) Plane Wave Generator

    SBC: Quick Reaction Corporation            Topic: N/A

    QRC submits this proposal in response to SBIR AF98-286 for a Plane Wave generator. The plane wave generator is required to generate a free space RF wave installed in the Benefield Anechoic Facility (BAF) to evaluate the various electromagnetic systems installed on the aircraft systems such as the B1B, F16, and C17. The generator must cover a wide frequency band in order to test the many differen ...

  10. Brazed Aluminum Ribbon Composites Materials for Cryogenic Tanks

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: N/A

    A material which is stronger than conventional aluminum, less permeable to liquid hydrogen than polymer matrix composites (PMCs), less flammable that PMCs in the presence of liquid oxygen, and can be made into large, complex shapes without an autoclave, would have a significant advantage over current cryogenic tank materials. Touchstone Research Laboratory proposes its ...
