Award List:

Techniques For Radiation Hardening of EKV Through Incorporation of Shielding In Component Structures Fabricated From Be/Be Alloy Substitute Materials

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Research Institution: University of Texas at Austin
Principal Investigator: Brian Muskopf, Principal Engineer
Award Amount: $97,822.00
RI Contact: Richard Ketcham
Abstract:
Beryllium (Be) has been the material of choice for many MDA Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV) components due to its desirable physical characteristics despite health hazard concerns and its high cost. However, Be/Be alloys have poor radiation shielding properties against x-ray, gamma and space… More

Advanced Structural Development for Cargo Stowage Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Brian Muskopf, Principal Engineer
Award Amount: $69,999.00
Abstract:
U.S. Navy Combat Logistics Force (CLF) ships require cargo stowage systems to secure palletized and non-containerized cargo in the ship's holds. The current steel rail diagonal dunnage cargo stowage system is heavy and requires extensive use of filler material such as wood blocks to fill space… More

Fuel Cell Supply Integration and Safety

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Brian Muskopf, Principal Engineer
Award Amount: $69,993.00
Abstract:
Man-portable fuel cell systems are currently being developed that could replace batteries and provide extended run-time power systems for U.S. Marine Corp tactical systems. However, little attention has been paid on how to safely store, transport and use fuels such as hydrogen, methanol, butane and… More

Research Institution: UNIV. OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN
Principal Investigator: Brian Muskopf, Principal Engineer
Award Amount: $749,994.00
RI Contact: Richard Ketcham
Abstract:
Beryllium has been the material of choice for many Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV) components due to its desirable physical characteristics despite its health hazard concerns and high cost. However, beryllium has poor radiation shielding properties against x-ray, gamma ray and space radiation. … More

Advanced Structural Watertight Door System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Brian Muskopf, Principal Engineer
Award Amount: $69,994.00
Abstract:
U.S. Navy quick acting interior watertight door systems currently in service are heavy, unreliable and very expensive to maintain over the life cycle of the ship. The current Navy standard door system design is over 50 years old and suffers from a number of design deficiencies including the use of… More

Ultra-Lightweight Hydrogen Gas Storage Tanks

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Brian Muskopf, Principal Engineer
Award Amount: $99,994.00
Abstract:
Future generations of high altitude airships (HAA) will require power systems with increased specific energy production and storage capability in order to enhance operational capability or reduce overall system weight. Regenerative fuel cell solutions hold much promise toward providing this… More

Highly Integrated/Symbiotic Structures

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Brian Muskopf, Principal Engineer
Award Amount: $99,943.00
Abstract:
Advanced composite materials and innovative structural designs are required that provide a net zero impact or a reduction in mass while increasing the radiation and EMI shielding of MDA kill vehicles (KV) and space based platforms. In addition, the typical process of "strapping" sub-systems such as… More

Improved Grid Fin Manufacturing Techniques

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Brian Muskopf, Principal Engineer
Award Amount: $99,966.00
Abstract:
Grid fin designs used for air launched munitions offer many advantages over conventional air foil shaped fins such as a reduction in flight actuator size and weight resulting in the improved performance of bomb and missile systems. The major draw back in the use of grid fins has been the high… More
