Award List:

JOINING METHODS FOR CARBON-CARBON STRUCTURES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Kenneth H Holko
Award Amount: $49,702.00

JOINING METHODS FOR CARBON-CARBON STRUCTURES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Kenneth H Holko
Award Amount: $250,000.00
Abstract:
High temperature (2500 deg f) airframes are needed for hypersonic missiles. a carbon/carbon composite material is attractive for this application. joining techniques are required that can be applied to airframe fabrication that will perform at high temperatures. since most joining work to date has… More

Low Cost Carbon Fiber Composites for Lightweight Vehicle Parts

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Neal Baitcher, Mr.
Award Amount: $750,000.00
Abstract:
The U.S. could significantly reduce oil consumption by decreasing the weight of its automobile fleet, especially by using lightweight carbon composite materials. However, lightweight materials in automobile structures have been problematic for two reasons: (1) the high cost of carbon fiber… More

Advanced Technologies for Discrete-Parts Manufacturing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DLA
Principal Investigator: Mark Janney, Chief Scientist
Award Amount: $99,978.00
Abstract:
Polymer matrix composites (PMCs) are a class of materials with great utility. Substitution of existing metallic parts by PMCs can result in weight reduction, part consolidation, elimination of corrosion, and improved performance. Materials Innovation Technologies LLC (MIT-LLC) is developing a… More

SBIR Phase I: Natural Fiber-Reinforced Bio-Based Thermoset Resin Composites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I

Advanced Technologies for Discrete-Parts Manufacturing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DLA
Principal Investigator: Mark Janney, Chief Scientist
Award Amount: $98,794.00
Abstract:
Since 2005, MIT-LLC has successfully developed the three dimensional engineered preform (3-DEP) process for making near-net-shape, complex geometry, chopped fiber preforms that are subsequently infused with epoxy or other thermosetting resin. We have been approached frequently to determine if we… More

SBIR Phase II: Long Fiber Thermoplastic Composites from Recycled Carbon Fiber
