Ultra-Low Temperature Elastomer

Greene Tweed’s (Kulpsville, PA) Fusion™ FKM 665, a new generation, ultra-low-temperature and chemical-resistant elastomer, was specifically formulated to meet and exceed the requirements of Aerospace Material Specification (AMS) 7379 and AMS-P-83461. With a temperature range of -70°F to 450°F (-57°C to 232°C), Fusion™ 665 achieves outstanding low-temperature performance without compromising high-temperature performance.

Rapid Deployment SIGINT Sensor

VStar Systems (San Diego, CA) announced the addition of a pod version of its MA-C SIGINT Sensor, the MA-C MiniPod™. Two active high frequency (HF) antennas allow for intercept and copy of land mobile radios from both direct Line of Sight (LOS) as well as Near Vertical Incidence Skywave (NVIS) signals for Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) communication methods. The MA-C MiniPOD can be installed on most standard airborne racks/missile launchers for integration on a wide variety of platforms.

Silicon Carbide Foam

Silicon carbide (SiC) foam from Goodfellow (Coraopolis, PA) provides the exceptional hardness, high-temperature durability and performance of solid silicon carbide, but in a lightweight foam structure. The matrix of cells and ligaments of silicon carbide foam is completely repeatable, regular and uniform throughout the material, yielding a rigid, highly porous and permeable structure with a controlled density of metal per unit volume. Characteristics of SiC foam include: exceptional hardness (Mohs 9) and resistance to wear and corrosion; can withstand temperatures up to 2200°C; high thermal and electrical conductivity; and low thermal expansion.

Silicon carbide foam is available from stock in a standard pore size of 24 pores per centimeter (60 ppi), with a bulk density of 0.29 g.cm-3, a porosity of 91% and a thickness of 10mm.

Titanium/Composites Brazing

Morgan Advanced Materials (Windsor, UK) announced that it now has the capability to braze carbon fiber, ceramics, composites, or other engineered materials directly to a titanium honeycomb. Carbon fiber and other similar non-metallic engineered materials have exceptional thermal conductivity capabilities, and are able to remain strong at temperatures exceeding 2000°F, far higher than those at which any metals retain their strength. Titanium honeycomb adds greater strength to the carbon fiber and eliminates fracturing issues by transferring forces from impact better than the carbon fiber alone. Both materials are exceedingly lightweight.

In addition, the strength of the braze bond is exceptional, equaling or exceeding the strength of each component material, unlike the reduced strength of adhesive, riveted, or other bonds. The addition of the titanium honeycomb to the carbon fiber allows easy joining of the titanium to other structures through traditional joining techniques.

Embedded Switch Fabrics

Mercury Systems, Inc. (Chelmsford, MA) has announced its Micro Via Radial Interconnect (MVRI) technology. MVRI improves OpenVPX™ switch fabric interconnect data rates by increasing the signal integrity margin approximately three-fold, enabling switch fabrics and point-to-point connections to run faster and more reliably. MVRI technology is scalable, enabling it to support signaling rates greater than 14 wGbaud per channel. Planned future fabric implementations, using InfiniBand enhanced data rate (EDR) or 100Gb Ethernet, especially benefit from the performance boost MVRI technology delivers. Intel® Xeon® server-class OpenVPX ecosystems in combination with the latest InfiniBand and Ethernet switch fabrics provide the embedded processing capability needed for challenging electronic warfare (EW) and C4ISR processing applications.
