Award List:

Self-repairing Composites for Airplane Components

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,998.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Carolyn Dry, President
Abstract:
Composites are used in the F/A 18 which has 50% of its skin in composite material. Other planes with high composite usage are the F-18, the B-1B bomber, F-14A, F-a6 and Navy V-22. The use of composites in airplane components provides significant weightreduction (40%) over metals. Reliability, in an… More

Self repairing Composites for Airplane Components

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$499,999.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Carolyn Dry, President
Abstract:
In self-repairing composites, usually liquid chemicals are contained inside a fiber or bead vessel that is embedded inside the polymer composite matrix or laminate. Damage such as an impact or fatigue microcracking causes the breaking of the vessel, release of internal chemicals into the damage site… More

Self Repairing and Self Sensing Multifunctional Composites

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,978.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator:
Carolyn Dry, President
Abstract:
The proposed innovation is a multifunctional smart self sensing and self repairing composite that provides shielding. It addresses the two basic risk issues that are constraining composite use: durability and confidence in repairs so that uncertainty and risk are reduced. Self-sensing/self-repairing… More

Self Repairing and Self Sensing Multifunctional Composites

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$729,972.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Carolyn Dry, President – (507) 452-9113
Abstract:
Most composite armor systems are vlunerable to the damage if there are repeated attacks on the materials because the materials absorb the energy by breaking up internally. The next impact event can be disastrous. Even the most protective have plies which delaminate and fiber weaves that break, and… More
