  1. Instrumented Projectiles for Measuring Impact Forces to Characterize Ballistic Behavior of Fabrics and Composites

    SBC: McQ Inc.            Topic: A11011

    The current laboratory methods used to experimentally evaluate the performance of textile armor fabric during ballistic impact do not provide time dependent load information. However, knowledge of the dynamic load spectrum imparted by a projectile to the fabric is required in order to properly characterize the dynamic response and failure mode of fabric yarns. What is needed is a real-time measuri ...

  4. Distributed Sensor Network for Structural Health Monitoring of Ships

    SBC: McQ Inc.            Topic: N101095

    There is a critical need for the ability to assess the structural health of the Navys ships through the use of strain monitoring. A strain monitoring system that is simple, unobtrusive, and highly reliable would be invaluable to the Navy for assessing the health of their vessels. To provide this capability, in Phase I McQ proposed the development of the strain acquisition and monitoring system (SA ...

  5. FastKAP Automated Fastener Kitting and Preparation System

    SBC: Systems & Materials Research Corporation            Topic: AF103C148

    Systems and Materials Research Corporation (SMRC) is developing FastKAP, an automated Fastener Kitting and Preparation system that will reduce span times for F-35 fastener installations by as much as 60% by performing most, if not all, fastener identification, collection, and preparation steps offline. FastKAP comprises automated subsystems for kitting, cleaning, and adhesion promoter application. ...

  6. SealKap- Semi-Automated Intelligent Fuel-Resistant Sealant Dispensing Tool

    SBC: Systems & Materials Research Corporation            Topic: AF112115

    ABSTRACT: Modern military and commercial aircraft utilize empty areas within the aircraft structure to store fuel. As such, fasteners and joints within these"wet areas"must be sealed with fuel-resistant sealant to prevent leak paths. Systems and Materials Research Corporation (SMRC) proposes SealKap, a semi-automated intelligent sealant dispensing tool designed to assist technicians with inverted ...

  7. Intrinsically Conductive Polymer Coatings for Reduced ESD Sensitivity

    SBC: Systems & Materials Research Corporation            Topic: A10049

    Systems and Materials Research Corporation (SMRC) proposes to reduce the electrostatic sensitivity of nanothermites by modifying the surface with a thin, conformal coating of inherently conductive polymer. Nanothermites or metastable intermolecular composites (MICs) are desired in military weapons systems because the energy output is twice that of traditional explosives, and they can be formulated ...

  8. Ultrastrong Dual Use Nanocomposite Materials for Blast and Transparent Armor

    SBC: Systems & Materials Research Corporation            Topic: A10123

    Nanocomposites are proving effective in protecting occupants of tactical ground vehicles from ballistic threats and mine blasts while maintaining optical transparency. In the proposed program, (Systems and Materials Research Corporation (SMRC) will develop a process for manufacturing these materials at rates higher than previously achieved. This approach utilizes SMRC"s experience in the developme ...

  9. Melt Extrudable Nanocomposite Liquid Crystal Polymer Films

    SBC: Systems & Materials Research Corporation            Topic: A10162

    Systems and Materials Research Company"s (SMRC"s) liquid crystalline polymer (LCP)-aluminosilicate nanocomposite films are the proposed replacement for the pin-holing and stress cracking foil layer in the Army"s Meals Ready-to-Eat. To replace the foil lined pouches, LCPs need two things: lower cost processing and better barrier properties. By processing the LCPs as nanocomposites, both are obtaina ...
