  1. Production of New Durable, Transparent Conductive Coatings

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: AF071103

    Transparent conductive indium tin oxide (ITO) coatings are used on the canopies of certain USAF aircraft for a variety of electromagnetic functions. However, the aircraft canopies suffer from short service lifetimes and must be replaced often because today’s ITO coatings exhibit poor mechanical durability and scratch resistance as aircraft fly through rain and dust. The need for frequent replace ...

  2. Protective conformal coatings for spacecraft polymers and paints

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: AF07T011

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes to further develop its non-line of sight, energetic coating system to deposit protective thin film coatings for polymers in the low earth orbit. Numerous satellites costing $25M to $1B reside in LEO and the lifetime time of the polymers used in these assets is limited by atomic oxygen (AO) erosion, UV/VUV damage and the negative effects of static charging. ...

  3. A SMART Lego system for Space Structures

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF06273

    Acellent Technologies proposes to develop a modular plug-and-play SMART Lego SHM system to obtain real-time information for panel identification and damage detection in satellite panels during storage, upon assembly and prior to launch. This will potentially enable development of low cost, plug-and-play (PnP) satellite structures to provide an Operational Responsive Space (ORS) capability for the ...

  4. Production of New Durable, Transparent Conductive Coatings

    SBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: AF071103

    Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) is currently used as a transparent electrically conductive coating on aircraft canopies to provide electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding for electronic components. The problem with ITO is that it is relatively soft and scratches easily, requiring frequent replacement of the windscreen, leading to high maintenance costs and aircraft downtime. In addition, ITO is applie ...

  5. Innovative Control Effectors for Common Aerovehicle (CAVs)

    SBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: AF071266

    Acree Technologies Incorporated (ATI) has demonstrated the effectiveness of using an innovative Cathodic Arc Plasma Source (CAPS) to produce high-density plasma for control of supersonic air flow. ATI proposes to use its CAPS system for actuation on the Common Aero Vehicle (CAV). The purpose of this proposal is to demonstrate the effectiveness of using the CAPS to produce high-density plasma for a ...

  6. Development of Nanosteel Chrome Replacement HVOF Coatings on High Strength Steel Components

    SBC: Engineering And Software System Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF071322

    High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) tungsten carbide, WC-Co, WC-Co-Cr coatings have been in development for two decades for chrome replacement in aerospace applications and implemented on many components. These coatings have been limited for High Strength Steel (HSS) Landing Gear component applications due to spallation where the substrates stress levels approach yield. Now that chrome plating OSH ...

  7. Development of Castings for Landing Gear aluminum forgings

    SBC: Engineering And Software System Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF071318

    Landing gear designs utilize forgings for structural applications, to maximize properties and minimize weight. Although this approach allows for minimal component weight and size, a forging typically has the longest logistic lead time, and is usually the most expensive manufacturing method. Many aluminum landing gear components are designed and manufactured from 2000 and 7000 series aluminum for ...

  8. Development of Cad Plating Replacement with Zinc Nickel on High Strength Steel Components

    SBC: Engineering And Software System Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF071320

    Landing gear components utilize steels with tensile strengths above 280 KSI. Components manufactured from these alloys require sacrificial protective coatings to perform successfully in service. Cadmium has been the baseline coating for such components for decades. The problems with cadmium, a known carcinogen, create occupational safety and health (OSH) risks; raising maintenance costs throughou ...

  9. Development of Pulse Water Strip of Tungsten Carbide HVOF Coatings and Chrome Plating on Landing Gear Components

    SBC: Engineering And Software System Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF071317

    Chrome plating has been utilized for Landing Gear components for over half a century and High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) tungsten carbide WC-Co coatings are currently being utilized for chrome replacement for aerospace applications and implemented on many non-aerospace applications. Landing Gear components are typically made of High Strength Steel (HSS) and are very sensitive to processing techn ...

  10. Inter-Turbine Burner Technology Demonstration

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: OSD07ES9

    The development of an Inter-Turbine Burner (ITB) for improving the part power performance of small gas turbine engines is proposed. An Inter-Turbine Burner is a second combustor placed between the gas generator exit and the power turbine to “reheat” the engine gas stream before it enters the power turbine. The Inter-Turbine burner is used to increase engine power at the maximum power setting, ...
