Award List:

Robust Bearings and Gears

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Vladimir Gorokhovsky, Director of R&D
Award Amount: $99,850.00
Abstract:
Critical gears and engine bearings in our newest vertical thrust aircraft must operate with absolute reliability under high loads, high heat, corrosive salt air and intervals without any lubricant whatever. Current materials and coatings that meet some of these conditions fail when subjected to the… More

Nanocomposite Tribological Corrosion Resistant Coating for Robust Bearings and Gears

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Vladimir Gorokhovsky, Director of Research & De
Award Amount: $726,006.00
Abstract:
"Critical gears and engine bearings in our newest vertical thrust aircraft must operate with absolute reliability under high loads, high heat, corrosive salt air and intervals without lubricant. Current gear and bearing materials meet the design requirements, however, it is desirable to improve the… More

Plasma Surface Engineering for Bearing Wear and Corrosion Prevention in Advanced Gas Turbine Engines

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Vladimir Gorokhovsky, Director of R & D
Award Amount: $99,974.00
Abstract:
Current engine bearing lubrication technology begins to break down at the high rotation speeds, loads and temperatures required for advanced fighter engines. Furthermore, in combat operation bearings may have to operate for short periods with no lubrication, and also resist pervasive corrosive… More

NANOSTRUCTURED THERMAL BARRIER COATING BASED ON FILTERED ARC PLASMA SOURCE ION DEPOSITION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Vladimir Gorokhovsky, Research Director
Award Amount: $93,641.00
Abstract:
In an attempt to extend turbine engine on-wing time, thermal barrier coatings (TBC) using various application techniques have been developed. High temperatures corrosion due to penetration of chemically active species along the columnar grains of the topcoat limits the durability of TBCs. This… More

Protective Coating for Large-Diameter Bearing Races

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Vladimir Gorokhovsky, Director of Research
Award Amount: $99,310.00
Abstract:
Critical large bearings in the F-35 thrust vector system must operate with absolute reliability under high loads, high heat and corrosive attack from salt air and fluorinated lubricant at elevated temperatures. A unique patented Filtered Arc Plasma Source Ion Deposition (FAPSID) process developed… More
