Contractor will provide enhancements to the software package known as the JASSM Enterprise Management System (JEMS) Phase 3B. Work will be performed at King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, and is expected to be completed by Sept. 14, 2015. This award is the result of a sole-source acquisition. Type of appropriation is fiscal 2014 war-stopper funds. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. Metal forming beyond shaping: Predicting and setting product properties. CIRP Ann.-Manuf. This is a one-year base contract, with nine one-year option periods.
The contracting activity is the Defense Logistics Agency Energy, Fort Belvoir, Virginia. *Small business. Thus, the 22MnB5 steel possesses in both the soft and hard condition a favorable distribution of elements, which simplifies the rapid austenitization.In contrast to the 22MnB5 steel, the first transformation temperature of the Docol 1400M steel is strongly dependent on the cooling rate. Both configurations, medium strength combined with high ductility and high strength combined with a moderate ductility can be achieved. Naval Supply Systems Command, Fleet Logistics Center, Jacksonville, Florida, is the contracting activity.
The contracting activity is the Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (SPE8E3-14-D-0910). Ibis Tek, LLC,* Butler, Pennsylvania, has been awarded a maximum $9,425,053 firm-fixed-price contract for vehicular windows. The grain growth is caused by the thermal activation, which is delayed in the case of the 22MnB5 steel through alloy elements, e.g., aluminum, titanium, and niobium. Furthermore, the DP1000 steel can be transformed into a ductile condition (εu = 16%, TS = 800 MPa) when a low austenitization temperature is selected or into a hard condition (εu = 4.1%, TS = 1260 MPa) by applying a high austenitization temperature and intended grain growth.
