Triton Systems proposes to develop an innovative an innovative approach to provide high-voltage protection to reduce the risk of electrical shocks from low overhead wires for dismounted radio operators while providing equivalent or better radiation pattern and gain in existing hand-held and man-pack radio antennas. Even short antennas can be risky in operational environments where power lines are only a few feet overhead. Currently available solutions are cumbersome or require antenna replacement, which is impractical.

The proposed program will complete the final level of tooling scale up for a production machine dedicated to filler manufacturing. This scale up uses an approach that has been demonstrated previously and therefore has a low level of associated risk. Along with the tooling scale up, there will also be a finalization of the manufacturing process that will be used in conjunction with the large capacity tooling. The process will be refined and optimized so that the filler meets all requirements. The new tooling will be moved within the production machine to demonstrate uniformity of filler characteristics regardless of tooling location. When the process has been optimized and validated, formal process control documentation will be developed to reflect the optimization and control limits at the scaled up conditions. This documentation will be developed with input from OEM M&P team. This equipment will be used to manufacture filler for qualification tests in several applications and for manufacturing after transition.

Plain, self-lubricating spherical bearings operating in high levels of airborne abrasive contaminant particle environments, such as desert regions, are subject to accelerated wear of their PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) liner systems. Accelerated bearing wear has been observed in fielded aircraft and leads to increased maintenance costs, Flight Safety Risk and reduced operational availability. The Navy has a need to protect bearings from contamination in order to increase bearing life and relieve maintenance burdens. Triton Systems proposes to develop a prototype device to improve plain bearing performance in a contaminated environment. Triton will design and fabricate and test prototypes of the device.

ABSTRACT:Triton Systems will mature and transition an adhesive product to satisfy a well-defined and urgent platform need that cannot be met with currently available technology. This effort will be carried out in close partnership with the end-customer and will leverage an SBIR technology that has already shown the potential to meet the requirements. The strong existing technology base, close teaming with the platform, and the well-defined transition and financial strategy will enable a rapid transition and deployment of this military capability.BENEFIT:Maturation and transition of the proposed adhesive technology has the potential to benefit the DoD and the Air Force by providing an adhesive performance that is not possible with currently available materials. Tritons adhesive technology has the potential to provide bonding performance at all relevant temperatures for this application. The Triton adhesive technology is considerably easier to use than conventional adhesives, and can provide considerable savings in manufacturing labor, time and cost.
