  4. Developing Aluminum-Based Metallic Glass Alloys for use in the Additive Manufacture of High-Toughness Aerospace Components

    SBC: NANOAL LLC            Topic: AF173014

    The additive manufacture of metal components from powder feedstocki.e. the net-shape, three-dimensional forming of a component, layer by layer, from a computer filehas gained popularity in the last nearly three decades, evolving from a method of rapid prototyping to rapid manufacturing. These methods are inherently far-from-equilibrium and present a significant, economical method to fabricate bulk ...

  5. Certification Modeling for Composites with Voids and Wrinkles for Engines and Structures

    SBC: ADVANCED COMPUTATIONAL TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF161129

    This proposal aims at developing a material agnostic modeling and analysis capability to help understand the genesis of voids and wrinkles during the processing and curing of fibrous composites. It also develops a hierarchical framework to investigate the effects of these micromechanics defects on the interlaminar strength and fatigue life of curved composite structures. The overall effort is cate ...

  6. High-Efficiency Radiation-Hard Solar Array Interface to Spacecraft Power System

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: AF162007

    The Phase II SAI prototype will be developed using COTS GaN switches and CMOS drivers. During Phase II Alphacore will design and fabricate a rad-hard CMOS driver ASIC to provide electrical and on-chip algorithmic control of the GaN switches. The SAI and its components will be tested and measured under varying environmental conditions, including across temperature and radiation extremes. The GaN de ...

  10. High Temperature Materials for Hypersonic Radomes and Antennas

    SBC: ADVANCED CERAMICS MANUFACTURING, LLC            Topic: AF18AT013

    Missiles experience a wide range of thermal and mechanical environments due to the large variety of flight profiles.Since it is often the aerodynamic leading edge, the missile radome undergoes significant thermal and mechanical loading. The radome must survive the dynamic pressure loading, thermal shock and environmental erosion from airborne particulates (rain / sand) while performing as an elect ...
