  1. Fabrication of ZrC, HfC, TaC-based Fibrous Monolithic Ceramics for Rocket Propulsion Systems

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this program is to develop a low cost, flexible manufacturing method for the production of high temperature ceramic composites for rocket propulsion systems. The matrix materials selected for this program will be ZrC, HfC, and TaC. These-materials have good oxidation/corrosion and ablation resistance at elevated temperatures, but typically do not possess the thermal shock resistance an ...

  2. Electro-magnetic Flak for Cruise and Sea Skimming Missile Defense

    SBC: Applied Physical Electronics, L.C.            Topic: N/A

    The electromagnetic directed energy method (lasers, particle beams, and high power microwaves) of defending against missiles relies on generating a large amount of energy at the defense site, locating the target, and then transporting a large fraction of that energy to the target along a line of sight at the speed of light, to either destroy or destabilize the threat at as long range as possibl ...

  3. Alternative Substrates for Materials Integration

    SBC: EPITRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The recent demonstration of twist bonded GaAs substrates offers the potential to develop universally compliant substrates upon which almost any III-V or related semiconductor can be grown without lattice mismatch induced defect formation. Compliant substrates would rapidly expand and improve a number of device applications, such as Sb-based detectors and a wide range of InGaAlAsP devices, which ar ...

  5. Low Cost C-HfC Composites

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Carbon fiber - hafnium carbide matrix composites are investigated for numerous propulsion applications. High manufacturing cost precluding wider application of this technology. This proposal builds upon novel, low cost C-C composite and CVR conversion technology developed at MER. One step, low cost C-C composite cylinders will be fabricated on one step and subsequently only the matrix will be conv ...

  6. Low Cost Continuous Fiber Composite for Propulsion Applications

    SBC: Materials and Machines Company            Topic: N/A

    Continuous fiber reinforced ceramic matrix composites have the potential to out-perform and cost less than refractory metals such as rhenium for propulsion component such as nozzles and trust chambers. However, the performance and cost advantages of CFCC's have not been realized. Ceramic fibers are very expensive and do not have the required service temperature capability. Carbon fiber composite c ...

  7. Precision Engineered Resistor Arrays from Band-gap Engineered Materials

    SBC: Nanomaterials Research LLC            Topic: N/A

    The performance of existing resistors is unsatisfactory for high frequency, small foot print, low noise electronic and communication applications. These technology limitations can be addressed with resistors prepared from proprietary band-gap engineered, near-molecular scale materials. This project, during Phase I, will establish the proof-of-concept that commercially useful resistor arrays can be ...

  10. Band-gap Engineered Visible Radiation Sensors

    SBC: Nanomaterials Research LLC            Topic: N/A

    Visible radiation detectors are enabling technology and are the basis for many military and commercial applications either in use or as proposed. Conventional sensors based on properties of Il-VI compounds are unfortunately temperature sensitive, time varying, and slow. This program seeks to overcome these limitations by developing visible radiation sensors from proprietary nanostructured material ...
