A newly developed Non-Explosive Technology (NEXT) produces ultra-high pressure hydrogen. This technology has been applied in the development of welding (impact bonding) similar and dissimilar metals, whereby a projectile material is launched into a stationary material. Specific impact conditions form a superior cold weld with no heat-effected zone, thus preventing degradation of the material properties of each of the joined materials. A variety of materials that previously could not be joined through conventional welding methods have been achieved through NEXT with funding provided by the NSF. North Carolina State University has verified and quantified that the bonded test materials have symmetrical wave morphology and a hermetically sealed transition, exhibiting superior strength - greater than that of the materials being bonded. Unlike traditional Explosive Welding (EXW) used to bond dissimilar metals, NEXT is portable, allowing near-net shaped and net-shaped parts to be bonded directly to one another or onto large fixed objects. Additionally, the welded joint prevents galvanic corrosion and electrical arcing between sensitive electronic components. Due to eliminating the shockwaves associated with explosives, AHPT is exploring the joining of ceramics and carbides to steel. The research has led to the discovery of the propulsion characteristics that may achieve vast improvements over conventional gun powders for small and large munitions as well as testing devices.

Flow forming is an advanced, net shape, cold metal forming process employed for the manufacturing of dimensionally precise, rotationally symmetrical, hollow components. Precise tubular components such as motor bodies and warheads for tactical rockets, having large length to diameter ratios, made with thin walls and requiring a high degree of dimensional accuracy are excellent flow formed parts. Titaniums, nickel-based alloys, high strength carbon steels, high fragmentation steels, Maraging Steels, high strength aluminums, and Tantalum Tungsten alloys are routinely flow formed. Internal and external features for the interface of fuzing, imbedded sensors, explosives, and propulsion are also routinely accommodated.
Well known for its efficiency and economic benefits, flow forming has been widely accepted as the process of choice in the fabrication of difficult-to-manufacture, round and thin wall, military and aerospace components requiring superior metallurgical and dimensional controls. Flowforming is currently employed for the production of missile war heads, outer shells and nose cones, housings for flight and launch motors, casings for rocket motors, large caliber cartridge casings, thin wall mortar tubes, projectiles, bomb bodies; as well as tubulars for the nuclear, petrochemical and aerospace industries. Flow formed parts are formed to net shape or near net shape, eliminating machining operations and expensive material losses.
A cylindrical work piece is attached to a rotating mandrel; 3 rollers hydraulically compress against the outer diameter of the preform. The desired geometry of the flow formed tube is achieved when the preform wall thickness is compressed above its yield strength and plasticized "made to flow" in the longitudinal direction onto the surface of the inner, rotating mandrel.
As the preform material is thinned out and lengthened onto the mandrel, preforms are formed into seamless, thin wall, very round and concentric tubular-shaped products; with increased mechanical properties from the cold work, refined microstructure, oriented crystallographic texture and excellent surface finishes, all with repeatable accuracy.

Mad Minute designs and produces an innovative line of suppressors for small arms. We employee a patented design that utilizes a unique energy conversion mechanism that converts pressure in the barrel from the fired round into mechanical/kinetic energy within the suppressor. We also utilize a spiral cut centerpiece under tension that not only allows evacuation of barrel gas and pressure reduction, but also enhances rigidity of the suppressor. This internal tension enables superior performance under extreme firing conditions while creating a sound signature that is fundamentally different than all other suppressors. The integrated technologies suppress every critical parameter of operational interest to include sound, heat/flash, pressure, recoil, and blowback. These design features are scalable to larger and much larger caliber weapons and extensible to the most extreme firing rates and conditions. Mad Minute designs have been demonstrated under extreme conditions and offer the armaments industry a collection of technologies that will create the leap in suppression performance required of our next-generation systems and expected future operational scenarios.

Mainstream is currently providing solutions to NASA, DOD, DOE, DOT, DOC, and industry. The company has been involved with several Directed Energy Weapons programs and provided Thermal Management Systems (TMS) for a number of these initiatives. By way of example, most recently, we developed an integrated system for an optical laser demonstrator. Our TMS was designed to remove heat from the laser subsystem (through an intermediate heat exchanger with a two-phased pumped loop), from the beam control system, environmental loads, and the electrical power subsystem. Our TMS used a vapor-compression (i.e., refrigeration) cycle to provide cooling in basic, hot, and cold climates in accordance with AR 70-38 and MIL-HDBK-310. The system acquired heat through our laser subsystem evaporator, vehicle platform evaporator, and other subsystem evaporators and rejected the heat through two rear-door-mounted condensers. Our twin-screw compressors, which we developed under a concurrent DARPA contract, comprised the compressor subassembly and served as prime movers. Innovative TMS of these weapons systems has long been a challenge to optimization of their performance.Visit Their Website

Faculty and staff at Purdue University have joined efforts to form an interdisciplinary team with an overriding focus on Energetic Materials. This research targets existing and emerging explosives-based threats to civilian and military infrastructure, commerce, and aviation. It also addresses the U.S. military’s need for more stable, more effective, less sensitive, and more easily processed energetic materials for use as propellants, pyrotechnics and in ordinance. Research topics include Synthesis and Fabrication activities aimed at creating tailored energetic materials. Improved performance, sensitivity, toxicity and lifetime are key drivers for these new materials. We are also interested in developing disruptive materials that are tunable, switchable, and multi-functional. Both top-down and bottom-up fabrication approaches are being explored. These include additive manufacturing methods, nanoscale encapsulation, and high energy ball mill mechanical activation methods. We are developing new chemical synthetic methods and materials, and improved cocrystallization schemes. Applications include all areas of energetic materials and include advanced propellants, enhanced explosives and novel pyrotechnics; Diagnostic and Characterization efforts are primarily aimed at improving our ability to study energetic materials during dynamic events. A variety of laser-spectroscopy and imaging techniques spanning the UV to the far-IR are currently being developed and applied to study propellant flames, explosions and detonations, shock impact, and electromagnetic stimulation. These efforts employ ultrafast-, burst-mode-, hyperspectral-, and wavelength-modulation-spectroscopy techniques, as well as high-speed and ballistic imaging to provide non-intrusive, time-resolved measurements of chemical species, temperature, pressure, and velocity. In addition, X-ray techniques for imaging optically dense, multi-phase processes are also of interest. A combination of commercial and custom-built light sources and imaging platforms are currently being used to extend such measurements to: additional chemical species, multiple dimensions (2D to 4D), shorter timescales, and increasingly hostile and optically dense environments. Drop-weight towers, Kolsky bars and gas guns are used to apply dynamic loads on the energetic materials to be characterized, optical and x-ray high-speed imaging techniques are used to determine the dynamic deformation and damaging processes in the energetic materials under impact. To identify the formation of hot spots, the temperature field associated with the deformation and damage is measured with a new 2D topographical temperature measurement method using laser-induced phosphorescence; Detection and Defeat activities are focused generally on interdiction of terrorists and improvised explosive devices. Improved materials and methods are being developed for better detection of explosives residues at security checkpoints using contact sampling methods. These approaches involve understanding the adhesion and mechanics of explosives, as well as the development of novel materials with optimized properties for explosives harvesting. In addition, standoff methods for detecting and defeating explosives are of great interest. These methods involve the application of novel MEMS technology for recognition of explosive vapors, and the development of directed energy methods for inducing deflagration within explosives and for detecting explosives residues in the vapor phase and on surfaces.Visit Their Website
