  1. Boron Carbide Matrix Composites for Aircraft Friction Materials

    SBC: Hyper-Therm High-Temperature Composites            Topic: N/A

    Next generation aircraft braking materials need to improve the minimum dynamic friction coefficient and volumetric heat capacity as compared with state-of-the-art carbon/carbon braking materials. These improvements will allow more compact, lighter weightbraking systems to be developed for future aircraft. Additionally greater wear resistance is required to reduce the life cycle costs of the brak ...

  2. Carbon Composites for Space Tribology

    SBC: Allcomp Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The intent of this Phase I effort was to examine the feasibility of using C-C composite for possible tribological applications in Space. In the Phase I effort, selected C-C composite materials were modified and tested for both high-speed bearing cage andslip ring/ brush applications under simulated space environments. 2D C-C cage materials were modified to reduce its pore size for lubricant retent ...

  3. Collaborative Simulation Technology for C4ISR Systems

    SBC: RAM LABORATORIES            Topic: N/A

    Trends in the modeling and simulation community are leaning toward the development of simulation sets comprised of diverse sets of component and subcomponent models. Resultant simulations cover a diverse set of simulation paradigms that may differ intiming, resolution, scope, platforms, infrastructures and languages. The existing infrastructures and frameworks are not capable of resolving differen ...

  4. Composite Flywheel Structure


    Composite flywheel rotors can achieve high performance with new design and manufacturing methods. This is done through novel hybridization of all hoop wound rotors and one stage cure without wrinkles. The rotors will be inspected before static, fatigueand spin tests. The predicted burst speed will be compared with spin test data. A flywheel system will be evaluated using our high performance r ...

  5. Continuous Identification of Ground Vehicles


    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to develop algorithms that will provide a continuous identification of ground vehicles through moving and stationary states. These algorithms will receive detections with signature information from synthetic apertureradars (SAR) and high-range-resolution-ground-moving-target-indicator (HRRGMTI) radars. The detections and signatures will be processed over time to ...

  6. Extraction of Rocket Propellant Physical Properties Via Computed Tomography

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this SBIR project is to develop enhanced capabilities to evaluate solid rocket motors (SRMs) using x-ray computed tomography (CT) inspection. In Phase I, approaches were defined for developing technology to improve CT inspectioncapabilities. In Phase II, the technology will be developed and incorporated in practical tools to be delivered to OO-ALC at Hill AFB, where Air Force mi ...

  7. Field-Deployable Chemical Point Detection Network

    SBC: MECHATRONIC SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: N/A

    The overall objective of this proposal is to develop a high temperature, motor drive based on silicon carbide (SiC) power semiconductors for controlling a switched reluctance motor (SRM). This motor drive will be suitable for use in either anelectromechanical actuator (EMA) or an electrohydraulic actuator (EHA). The proposed Phase II effort focus is the additional research and development needed t ...

  8. Flickerless Electro-optic Imagery for Simulation and Test Instrumentation (FEISTI)

    SBC: PHOTERA TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    Testing in a simulated environment is an essential feature of weapons system development. However, creating that environment can pose severe technical challenges. In the case of TV-guided munitions, the difficulty stems from the need to preserve dynamicimage fidelity with respect to a weapon's seeker; a task which is very different from creating imagery which appears realistic to the human eye, an ...

  9. General Purpose Real-Time Digital Processor Development for Microdewar-Based Seekers

    SBC: Nova Research, Inc. DBA Nova Sensors            Topic: N/A

    An efficient, modular real-time digital processing

  10. High Accuracy, Automated Satellite Surveillance Network

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Oceanit has successfully shown in Phase I that highly accurate (sub-arcsecond) observations are obtainable utilizing a relatively low-cost COTS system. These highly accurate angular observations can be introduced into the orbit determination process as asupplement to high-quality range data. These improved angular observations help resolve the geometric ambiguity of range-only orbit determinatio ...
