  1. High Density Liquid Hydride Based Hydrogen Storage System

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

    A liquid chemical hydride-based hydrogen storage system is proposed for high density hydrogen supply for fuel cell power generation applications. Research works performed at MER showed that certain liquid hydrides can be catalytically dehydrogenated at temperatures as low as 150¿C. The released hydrogen gas can be withdrawn from the system through a hydrogen permeable membrane to achieve comple ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. AFFORDABLE OXIDATION INHIBITED CARBON-CARBON COMPOSITES FOR 1200 DEGREE F APPLICATION

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

    Affordable/low cost carbon-carbon (C-C) composites are enabling to a number of defense, aerospace and commercial applications. However, in addition to cost, their limitation is carbon gasification in oxidative environments above about 750¿F (=400¿C). An inhibited carbon matrix that reduces oxidation rate by a factor of 200 with up to double the strength of uninhibited composites which could be ...

  5. A Novel Processing Technique for the Large-Scale Production of Red Phosphorus

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

    Current techniques for the production of red phosphorus powders cannot produce 5¿m size powders while maintaining a pure surface. Two new processing techniques are suggested that are capable of processing red phosphorus into powders 5¿m or smaller in size. These techniques have been demonstrated with conventional metals and alloys but not with phosphorus. One important advantage of these proc ...

  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. Low-Cost Hot-Gas-Turbine Powered Hydraulic Power Supply

    SBC: M-DOT Aerospace            Topic: N/A

    M-DOT Inc. proposes to conduct a trade study and design a low- cost hot-gas turbine driven fuel pump/hydraulic power supply for use on an advanced missile system. When design is complete, a cost analysis of a proposed production version will be conducted. The unit will be capable of the following: Delivering 0.5 lbm/sec of jet fuel against a back pressure of 100 psia and providing 1 hp of hydraul ...

  8. Reactive Topical Skin Protectants Against Sulfur Mustard and Nerve Agents

    SBC: NanoScale Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The potential of Destructive Adsorbent Technology (DAT) to detoxify sulfur mustard and nerve agents has been demonstrated in the laboratory. DAT employs a new class of reactive adsorbent materials, known as nanoparticles, to detoxify such hazardous substances by removing halogen or phosphorous elements from them. Developed at Kansas State University, DAT has been licensed to Nantek, Inc. for fur ...

  9. Reactive Nanoparticles as Destructive Adsorbents for Biolog

    SBC: NanoScale Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this Phase I is to demonstrate the use of Reactive Nanoparticles (RNP) for the decontamination/sterilization of biological agents and their mimics. Recent studies have shown that RNPs are very effective for chemical agent decontamination at ambient or higher temperature. Examples include paraoxon, VX, half mustard and HD. RNPs themselves are generally made of non-toxic magnesiu ...

  10. Catalytic Topical skin cream Protectants Based on Nanoparticles and Polyoxometalates

    SBC: NanoScale Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Catalytically reactive topical skin protectant (rTSP) for soldiers against chemical warfare agents will be developed based on two complimentary technologies. The first will be an outgrowth of nanoparticle metal oxides as destructive adsorbents, where catalytic action is facilitated by placing monolayers of catalytically active transition metal oxides on nanoparticles of MgO and/or ZnO. Another a ...
