  1. A Multi-Representation Architecture for STEP AP210-based PCB Stackup Design and Warpage Analysis

    SBC: INTERCAX, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This effort creates foundations for highly automated simulation tools that predict warpage in printed circuit boards and assemblies (PCAs/PCBs) and chip packages. Our technique, MHS, provides core capabilities to automate warpage and other problems that were impractical until now. MHS extends a multi-representation approach the PI first conceived at Georgia Tech for CAD-CAE interoperability. This ...

  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. Seamless Non-Line-Of-Sight Communications for Urban Warfare

    SBC: ADAPTIVE DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF05T022

    This project will investigate candidate space-time coding schemes to be incorporated in a multiple-input multiple output two-way communication system that operates within an urban warfare environment. The main objective is to increase channel capacity to achieve high-quality video transmission using narrow signal bandwidths, typically deployed for voice channels. The investigation will determine t ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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. ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. Passive High Performance Heat Storage and Dissipation Technology for Transient High Power Thermal Management

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T010

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT), in partnership with the University of Nevada-Reno (UNR), is developing a high performance metal hydride heat storage and dissipation technology for high power lasers. The proposed technology incorporates heat pipes for passive acquisition and dissipation of high heat flux heat loads and metal hydrides for storage of the heat loads during the laser operati ...
