  3. High Power Microwaves

    SBC: LOKI INC            Topic: A04221

    The objective of the proposed research and development work is to create two new types of compact, autonomous, pulse-detonation-driven high-power microwave sources that provide multiple pulse radiation. These systems are to be used to construct small to medium caliber munitions (40-mm to 155-mm) to increase the scope of the target set, and enhance destruction capability. These types of microwave g ...

  4. Innovative, Weight Efficient, Composite/Metallic Structural Joining Concepts

    SBC: M&P TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05248

    Currently aircraft composite and metal structures are joined by fastening them in place using riveted or bolted joints. Although fastened joints largely avoid concerns associated with thermally induced stresses and strains from CTE mismatches, such designs add weight, manufacturing complexity and cost to the design. Recent advances have given rise to new opportunities to increase the integrity a ...

  7. A versatile, novel two-step hydrogen reforming process

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: AF05282

    The Air Force requires a reformer technology that can handle multiple fuels and produce fuel cell quality hydrogen on demand. These include JP-8 as well as natural gas and other hydrocarbons. Many of the current technologies require multiple steps in order to remove CO or H2S impurities from the fuel stream. This creates difficulties from fuel versatility, processing and portability standpoints ...

  10. System Engineering-- Thermal/Power- Efficiency Assessments of Air Vehicles

    SBC: MODELOGICS, INC.            Topic: AF04243

    In these times of increasing deficits and limited budgets, the Office of the Secretary of Defense is using the idea of Capability-Based Acquisitions. This concept limits spending by focusing investments only for key capabilities. With this concept, Research and Development at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) now also needs to be such that funding is focused on R&D that supports these key ...
