Award List:

Heatshield Ablation Pattern Roughness Onset and Effects

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Charles Powars, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,515.00
This project will develop a practical method for predicting pattern roughness onset and quantitative effects on heat and mass transfer rates for heatshield materials such as Phenolic Impregnated Carbon Ablator (PICA) and environments such as those anticipated for the Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV).… More

Ablation-Resistant High-Density Hypervelocity Projectile Nosetip

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Charles Powars, Principal – (408) 723-1216
Award Amount: $79,986.00
This project will develop and demonstrate a high-temperature ceramic-coated tungsten nosetip for hypervelocity projectiles. The ceramic coating will delay oxidation, which causes increased surface roughness, boundary layer transition, much higher heat transfer rates, and substantial ablation of… More
