Award List:

Advanced Structural Concepts

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Leon Bryn
Award Amount: $79,595.00

Advanced Structural Concepts

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1997 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Leon Bryn
Award Amount: $749,996.00
Abstract:
Specific mechanical properties of fiber-reinforced composites have made them an attractive material for application to many aircraft structures. Today, composite structure is typically made up of laminated layers (plies) of 2-D composite material with the fiber direction of each ply thoughtfully… More

N/A

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2000 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Leon Bryn
Award Amount: $69,978.00

Novel Forming Techniques of Complex Shapes in Personnel Armor

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Leon Wilkinson, Program Manager / Princip
Award Amount: $684,470.00
Abstract:
"This proposal shall outline the process of modifying a standard loom to weave three-dimensional complex shapes for personnel armor. Current manufacturing techniques for textile-based personnel armor focus on constructing complex shapes from orthogonalwoven fabrics with cuts and darts, reducing… More

Demonstration of Multiple Fiber Pre-forms for Local Property Tailoring

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Leon Bryn, Program Manager
Award Amount: $99,712.00
Abstract:
The most difficult part of the end-fire CLAS assembly is the installation of short circuits to connect the various circuitry layers. If shorts with certain features can be pre-fabricated prior to final assembly of the skin, the skin fabrication will be made much easier, and hence less costly. One… More

Demonstration of Multiple Fiber Pre-forms for Local Property Tailoring

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Leon Bryn, Program Manager
Award Amount: $748,772.00
Abstract:
Ribbon Mills and its subcontractor Northrop Grumman Corporation (NGC) propose a Phase II program, to continue the research into advanced complex performs concepts utilizing weaving technology applied to state-of-the-art composites to enhance the revolutionary low frequency, conformal load-bearing… More

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Leon Bryn, Project Manager
Award Amount: $98,714.00
Abstract:
The VULTURE Air Vehicle Program is an exploratory development program with the overall goal to develop and demonstrate the ability to deliver and maintain an airborne payload on station for an uninterrupted period exceeding 5 years using a heavier-than-air platform system. It is envisioned that… More
