Contract: NNC07QA07P
Award Amount: $99,998.00
 

Abstract:

This Phase I SBIR program will demonstrate the use of wear resistant high strength nanocomposites in the turbine engine repair and refurbishment process. The metallic nanocomposite will be applied using laser additive remanufacturing to worn turbine blades. This would provide greatly increased erosion resistance for rotorcraft turbine engines, extending their life and reducing fuel consumption by 15-20% over the life of the engine. Powdermet will develop composite feedstocks optimized for laser additive manufacturing, and is teamed with Flight Support International, and FAA certified repair shop certified for T64 engine repairs.
