Advances in printing technologies may enable low-cost and flexible fabrication options for ignition bridges. The inherent nature of these direct write systems enables quick-turn prototyping for laboratory-scale development, while their high throughput allows low-cost production. The Blue Sky Engineering team proposes to develop printed explosive bridges based on its expertise in microdetonators including a M-100-compatible device. Modeling results of explosive bridges have closely matched experimental results during actual explosive testing. This has allowed optimization of design parameters. Key tasks include design optimization for printing processes, fabricate and test prototypes, analyze cost and weight savings, and perform an engineering study that will evaluate the Phase I design in the explosive train and in a gun-launch environment.

An apparatus for removing an auger from a grinder head includes a tool member including an auger engaging portion for receiving a front shaft portion of the auger. The auger engaging portion is adapted to be received in a tool engaging portion of the front shaft to for an interference that permits a removal force applied to the tool member to be transferred to the auger.


The present invention pertains to the selection of cathode materials. The cathode materials of concern are the conducting polymer or backbone and the redox active species or sulfur species. The selection of the materials is based on the characteristics of the materials relating to the other components of the batteries and to each other. The present invention also pertains to the resultant cathode materials, particularly a selected cathode material of a single component sulfur-based conducting polymer with the sulfur species covalently linked to the conducting polymer, and most particularly a thiophene based polymer with covalently linked sulfur species. The conducting polymers have been covalently-derivatized with sulfides and/or sulfide-containing groups as battery cathode materials. The present invention also pertains to a battery employing the selection method and resultant cathode materials.

A wound treatment appliance is provided for treating all or a portion of a wound. In some embodiments, the appliance comprises an impermeable flexible overlay that covers all or a portion of the wound for purposes of applying a reduced pressure to the covered portion of the wound. In other embodiments, the impermeable flexible overlay comprises suction assistance means, such as channels, which assist in the application of reduced pressure to the area of the wound and removal of exudate from the wound. In other embodiments, the wound treatment appliance also includes a vacuum system to supply reduced pressure to the wound in the area under the flexible overlay. In yet other embodiments, the wound treatment appliance also includes wound packing means to prevent overgrowth of the wound or to encourage growth of the wound tissue into an absorbable matrix comprising the wound packing means. In still other embodiments, the appliance may include a suction drain. In other embodiments, the appliance may include a collection chamber to collect and store exudate from the wound. In yet other embodiments, a suction bulb may be used to provide a source of reduced pressure to an impermeable overlay that covers all or a portion of the wound. Finally, methods are provided for using various embodiments of the wound treatment appliance.


According to a first aspect, the invention relates to a floating furniture (1,12,13) for carrying a person or object in water. The floating furniture comprises a buoyant planar body (2), wherein the planar body (2) concerns a rigid and hollow body. The planar body (2) is provided with one or more positioning elements, which positioning elements are suitable to attach a soft body (4) to the top surface (5) of the planar body (2).


A hull mounted, steerable marine drive system having trim actuation is both steerable through 360 degrees and is trimmable in a range of from approximately +3 degrees to approximately 15 degrees. The marine drive system includes a watertight enclosure assembly for sealing the hull, which is adapted for keeping much of the marine drive system from being exposed to water. The enclosure includes a gasket flange plate, a retention plate and a folded gasket. The gasket flange plate closely follows the contour of the hull and enhances the hydrodynamic and wake performance of the present marine drive system. Further, marine drive system includes a forward-neutral-reverse (FNR) transmission assembly, a drive unit assembly having a trimmable upper unit and a steerable lower unit, a steering actuator assembly, a trim actuator assembly, and, preferably, trim foils for enhancing lift to assist in getting the boat up on plane.
