Rugged COTS enclosure

  • 20-Jan-2015 01:33 EST

The air-cooled 3U nine-slot D2D chassis from Curtiss-Wright comes in a 3/4 ATR tall long format. The Hybricon D2D-34TLA enclosure enables a system integrator to use the same COTS enclosure throughout the complete program lifecycle, from development to demonstration to deployment. The OpenVPX enclosure eliminates the need to design a custom backplane, speeding the commencement of system design. The chassis uses a standard COTS backplane and I/O cabling, MIL 28V-input power, and an industrial-grade fan. When the application is ready for demonstration or deployment, the standard backplane and cables of the unit may be replaced with a custom backplane and I/O panel, and the fans may be upgraded to MIL grade units.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
Improvements to Airbus A320 passenger air nozzles could potentially contribute to program-wide benefits.
NASA has selected proposals for the creation of two multi-disciplinary, university-led Space Technology Research Institutes (STRIs) that will focus on the development of technologies critical to extending human presence deeper into our solar system. The new STRIs will bring together researchers from various disciplines and organizations to collaborate on the advancement of cutting-edge technologies in bio-manufacturing and space infrastructure.
