  1. Improved Manufacturing Technologies for Polymer Matrix Composite Engine Components

    SBC: 2PHASE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06115

    This proposal addresses the development and use of lightweight, low thermal-capacity reformable tooling materials for high-temperature composite processing evaluation, parts prototyping, trial production and full-rate production of PMC engine components. The weight-saving promise of high-temperature polymer matrix composites (PMCs) for engine components is offset by the very high costs of parts m ...

  2. Vinyl Ester Compatible High-Modulus Fiber System for Composite Laminates

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N04094

    An aqueous-based finish (sizing) was developed in Phase I to improve the carbon/vinyl ester interfacial bond. The finish is composed of a reactive coupling agent, a low viscosity vinyl ester resin, a free radical inhibitor, and a surfactant. The reactive finishes substantially improved the carbon/vinyl ester interface compared to unsized or FOE sized materials. Failure mode analysis shows that ...

  3. High Temperature Finishes/Sizings for Polyimide Matrix Composites

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N04251

    New high-temperature sizings are needed to improve the properties and durability of carbon/polyimide composites. Compatibility with weaving and braiding operations and improved wetting during prepregging or resin infusing polyimide resin is also needed. Achieving these characteristics will result in reducing life cycle costs for jet engine composites through better property translation, reduced ...

  4. Finishing Process to Improve Interfacial Bonding in SiC/BMI Composites

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N05025

    High-temperature (HT) polymer matrix composites (PMCs) are desired for many aerospace and military applications. Silicon carbide (SiC) fibers provide a potentially attractive reinforcement for HT PMCs for applications ranging from propulsion systems to structures for the orbiting space plane. The sizings routinely added to commercial SiC fibers are not compatible with the new HT matrix resins. ...

  5. Phosphorous-Containing Epoxy Resins for Room Temperature VARTM

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N06T017

    The Navy intends to start using a significant quantity of composite structures in surface ship construction in an effort to decrease costs as well as to reduce the visibility of the ships to radar. The large size of the target structures necessitates the use of low temperature, non-autoclave processing techniques such as Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding (VARTM). In the recent past, most m ...

  6. Closed Loop Composite Recycling Process

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF06081

    The recycling of composites on a large scale is an unsolved problem. Currently, the material is either ground up into near-worthless fillers, incinerated, or digested using environmentally questionable technology. Adherent Technologies, Inc. has developed a number of technologies to reclaim valuable carbon fiber and other raw materials from these composites in a potentially economically feasible ...

  7. High-Resolution Wide-Dynamic-Range MEMS-Based Closed-Loop Adaptive Optics System

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: AF05003

    AgilOptics’ Phase I SBIR proposed the development of a moire¢ Wave-Front Sensor (MWFS) test-bed to evaluate the MWFS design developed and patented by the University of New Mexico (UNM) and to extend the design for use in a closed-loop Adaptive Optic (AO) system with a Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) Deformable Mirror (DM) corrector. Our Phase I results have shown that the MWFS provides i ...

  8. MEMS-Based Aero-optics Simulator System

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: AF06T030

    This effort joins the MEMS-based deformable mirror technology available from AgilOptics, a New Mexico small business, with the aero-optics technology of the University of Notre Dame to develop an Aero-optics Simulator. This simulator will develop a library of aero-optics patterns to simulate atmospheric distortions for test and evaluation of military or commercial beam control systems.

  9. Tuneable Low Frequency Microwave Source

    SBC: ASR Corporation            Topic: AF05006

    The proposed effort is to develop a frequency and waveshape agile pulse forming system. The pulse forming system is based on a Blumlein topology and allows a wide range of waveforms to be generated from a fixed set of mechanical hardware.

  10. Compact HPM Sources

    SBC: ASR Corporation            Topic: OSD05D07

    The MATRIX oscillator was developed as a tunable wideband HPM source for use by the AFRL in threat testing. The fundamental physics of hydrogen insulation used in the MATRIX oscillator as well as the overall topology limit the voltage-frequency-Q (VFQ) product of the current system. Through the application of dual-resonant topology and revised insulation, the output of the MATRIX oscillator conc ...
