  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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. ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Lightweight Compact Micro-Channel Heat Exchangers

    SBC: International Mezzo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N05087

    The objective for this program is to increase the technical readiness level (TRL) of a Return Fuel Air Cooled (RFAC) heat exchanger (HX) based on Mezzo Technologies' proprietary microchannel technology to TRL 6 and an Oil/Fuel HX to a TRL 5. Mezzo will team with Lockheed Martin on this program. The target application for this program will be the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF).

  6. Biometric Identity Verification for Sailors in Battle Dress

    SBC: LUMIDIGM, INC.            Topic: N06088

    This completed project (phase I & II) will utilize Lumidigm's multispectral imaging platform to create a biometric device that can be efficiently slid under a sailor's battle dress to authenticate identification. Phase I will include designing an ergonomically viable device where multispectral images can be collected under a sailor's battle dress. Data will be collected utilizing Lumidigm's exis ...

  7. Prognostic ASIC and IC set for Process-Related Integrated Circuits (IC))

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: N06006

    MSI has developed and tested a Prognostic Health Management (PHM) microchip module that is used for monitoring electrical systems. We propose new research to determine the feasibility of developing a prognostic system based on a self-test IC, “a system on a substrate”. Our research will explore and define a set of web-based cognitive fusion algorithms that will provide a model based formalism ...

  8. Autonomous seafloor geotechnical property sensor

    SBC: OMNI TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N06160

    Omni Technologies, Inc. (OTI) is proposing to develop an autonomous, geotechnical survey tool for mapping marine sediment properties. Our approach is to leverage one of the available man-portable autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and develop an instrument capable of surveying a wide area. OTI proposes to combine a geotechnical instrument(s) with an acoustic sub-bottom profiler to combine lar ...

  9. Sonobouy Remote Programmer

    SBC: QUOIN INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: N06010

    This proposal describes two potential methods to replace the Electronic Function Selector (EFS) currently used to program a sonobuoy. Quoin proposes to develop a Handheld Remote (HR) programmer unit through one of two proposed approaches. Either of these modifications to the sonobuoy will make it less expensive, require less volume, consume comparable or less power, and have more data/file transf ...

  10. Innovative Anti-Tamper Power Source

    SBC: Qynergy Corporation            Topic: OSD05A04

    Qynergy Corporation proposes to develop a unique power system for anti-tamper applications. Anti-tamper technology is used for protecting critical technology from being reverse engineered. Qynergy has developed a unique technology that converts energy from beta emitting radioisotopes into usable power. This QynCellT (betavoltaic power cell) is capable of delivering small amounts of power (micro ...
