  • Patent number: 10125057
    Abstract: For production of a propellant charge powder, especially for medium and large calibers, in a process in which the solid is incorporated together with a liquid in a mixing and drying process into the channels of a granular green material and compacted therein to form a plug, the solid, under otherwise identical process conditions, is set within a setting range of >0-0.5% by weight based on the weight of the granular green material. For more significant lowering of the maximum pressure within an upper temperature range and for more significant raising of the maximum pressure within a lower temperature range of the application temperature range, an increased amount of solid is used. The solid is a substance whose melting point is at least 10° C., especially 20° C., above a maximum use temperature of the propellant charge powder and which is inert toward the granular green material. Since the plug consists virtually exclusively of inert material, a high ballistic stability is achieved.

  • Patent number: 9784559
    Abstract: A swept source OCT system and related method are disclosed. The system comprises a control device for operating a tunable light source in response to an electronic sweep control signal such that the tunable light source carries out wave length sweeps with a repetition rate fsweep, which depends on the frequency of the sweep control signal. The system further comprises a detection device for the time-resolved detection of an interference signal from a sample beam and a reference beam with the help of a detection cycle signal. The sweep control signal and the detection cycle signal are phase-locked, or means for creating a signal or signal sequence are provided, said signal or signal sequence being characterising for the frequency relationship and/or the relative phase position of the sweep control signal and detection cycle signal.
