Title: Multifunctional Nanocomposite Coatings for Mechanical Assemblies of Space Optics
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Contract: W9113m-06-c-0178
Award Amount: $99,957.00
 

Abstract:

Space tracking and surveillance systems require mechanical assemblies that operate in varying and extreme atmosphere and temperature conditions. For proper functioning of these mechanical assemblies in space for many years, highly stable lubricating and wear resistant coatings are needed. To this end, in this Phase I program UES proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of multifunctional nanocomposite coatings with embedded solid lubricant phases in such applications. A systematic test methodology will be used to evaluate the developed coating. Based on the evaluation results the developed coatings will be validated and ranked. Highly ranked coatings will be further developed in Phase II.
