The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.
SBC: FMW COMPOSITE SYSTEMS, INC. Topic: S202
For over 15 years, FMW Composite Systems has developed Metal Matrix Composite manufacturing methodologies for fabricating silicon-carbide-fiber-reinforced titanium components, also known as Titanium Matrix Composites (TMC), for the aerospace industry. These efforts have resulted in successfully flight qualifying three TMC components, including a piston rod used in the divergent exhaust nozzle actu ...SBIR Phase II 2008 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
SBC: Jabiru Software and Services Topic: A206
NASA aerocapture missions require an accurate evaluation of radiative thermal transport in order to simulate the aerothermal environment around space vehicles. However, present day computation of radiative transport in this complex multi-dimensional environment is frequently done using simple one-dimensional tangent-slab approximations or optically-thick approximations which compromise the accura ...SBIR Phase I 2008 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC) Topic: X1001
This proposal addresses NASA's need for improved TPS materials. The incumbent CEV heatshield TPS for Orion's Block II lunar return is PICA, a low-density carbon fiber infiltrated with phenolic resin. Variants of PICA with improved thermomechanical properties would benefit future missions. This effort will create a series of "mid-density" ablative materials to fill the gap between low-density PICA ...SBIR Phase I 2008 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
