  1. Distributed Automatic Reconfigurable Transponder (DART)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Williams-Pyro, Inc. (WPI) has designed and successfully demonstrated a proof-of-concept of the Distributed Automatic Reconfigurable Transponder (DART) that will be capable of achieving distributed multi-nodal voice/data communication for fire fighters. In Phase 2 we will focus on developing a fully functional system that reduces communication failure while maintaining a robust and flexible system. ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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. ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. EPVD COATINGS FOR IMPROVEMENT OF GUN BARRELS

    SBC: ADVANCED GLOBAL SERVICES, LTD            Topic: AF06350

    Various attempts have been made to replace electrodeposited chromium applied to internal surfaces of gun barrels. In this activity Advanced Global Services (AGS) will validate a novel coating technique to apply advanced non-hazardous erosion resistant materials to medium caliber gun tubes. The development of unique process parameters to apply advanced coating materials for erosion protection of me ...

  9. Sealant Application Process and Technology Development

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Processes            Topic: N05144

    Advanced Materials & Processes (AMP) has identified a viable approach for applying Class B or C sealants that will meet quality criteria for thickness, porosity, continuity, and application time. The project will develop a rapid dispensing process for consistent application of the minimum weight of sealants to solid surfaces. Current methods are time consuming and applicator dependent, resulting ...

  10. Define/Demonstrate Beryllium (Be) Substitute Material for Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED POWDER SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: MDA04095

    Understanding that saving weight without sacrificing performance on a vehicle is important, the objective of this program is to demonstrate lightweight materials (1.1-1.6 gm/cm3) materials that can replace Beryllium in the near term for multiple applications. These applications will have specific requirements of high thermal conductivity, low thermal conductivity, radiation resistance, Modulus, t ...
