  1. 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 ...

  2. CMAS mitigation for TBCs using a novel aluminum-phosphate based overlay coating

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N06032

    Applied Thin Films, Inc. proposes to use and an innovative aluminum phosphate solution based coating material to act as a sacrificial barrier layer to protect zirconia thermal barrier coatings from molten CMAS ingress and attack. The proposed coating material, known as Cerablak™, will ideally prevent any decrease in zirconia TBC lifetime expectancy and insulation efficiency due to CMAS infiltra ...

  3. Application of a Uniform Coating Thickness for Complex or Irregular Surfaces

    SBC: CONTEXT FUSION, LLC            Topic: N06063

    Current coating methodologies for geometrically irregular surfaces have become increasing complex and expensive to apply. Yet surfaces exposed to corrosive environments can still suffer the risk of corrosion. While the Navy has invested in edge retentive coating systems, application procedures still require the application of multiple coats due to the challenges inherent in coating complex and ir ...

  4. Potable Water Production Module

    SBC: Creative Thermal Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N06135

    This proposal describes new technology for water purification based on heat pumps, and more specifically based on transcritical CO2 system. Heat pumps in general are excellent thermal transformation tools when both sides (warm and cold) are utilized. Energy efficiency can be extremely high when designed properly. Transcritical CO2 based systems offer even better opportunity due to characteristic ...

  6. New Material Compositions that Expand the Operating Domain of Piezoelectric Single Crystals

    SBC: H. C. Materials Corporation            Topic: N06T034

    At the present time, large-sized PMN-PT piezoelectric crystals, 3" diameter by 8" long, of high quality, can be grown directly from the melt and are commercially available. The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of expanding the operating domain of the PMN-PT based piezoelectric crystals by chemical doping and compositional refinements. Although the piezoelectric properti ...

  7. Processing Methods to Fabricate Reliable Device Elements of PMN-PT Piezoelectric Single Crystals

    SBC: H. C. Materials Corporation            Topic: N06083

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of enhancing the mechanical strength and reducing the manufacturing costs for PMN-PT single crystal elements by proposed mechanical processes. At present time, the surface defects in such multi-domain PMN-PT piezocrystal elements result in mechanical strength degradation. This has limited our ability to fully utilize the tremendous p ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Micro-factory for Miniaturization, Portability and Remote Production

    SBC: MICROLUTION, INC.            Topic: N06T030

    The authors developed an automated microfactory prototype at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2005 as part of a grant from the US Army Aviation and Missile Command. The prototype provided proof-of-concept for important microfactory technologies, and revealed gaps between the state-of-the-art and the Navy microfactory requirements listed in the solicitation. The proposed innovati ...
