The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Solid Freeform Fabrication of low cost, in situ, metallic foam components for high energy absorption applications

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In the phase I program, Advanced Ceramics Research, Inc. (ACR) fabricated in situ metallic foams by using a unique water-soluble polymer blend and ACR's Extrusion Freeform Fabrication (EFF) method. When the green parts were heated for binder burnout, thebinder was found to foam and create uniform closed, high-aspect ratio porosity. The freeform fabrication also could create open porosity ranging f ...

  2. Rapid Prototyping of continuous fiber reinforced ceramic matrix composites

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    For propulsion related applications, materials must be able to demonstrate excellent ablation and oxidation resistance at temperature approaching 3500?C, adequate load bearing capabilities, non-catastrophic failure modes, and ability to withstand transient thermal shock. Advanced Ceramics Research, Inc. (ACR) has developed low cost, flexible-manufacturing processes for Zr & Hf-based carbon fiber r ...

  3. Highly Monodispered MINIM Arrays for Single Electron Transistors

    SBC: AMSEN TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: N/A

    As the current trends in transistor miniaturization are continued down to the molecular level ( in a dimension of tens of nanometers or less), the electronic properties of solids and solid-solid interfaces are inherently different on the nanometer level.It is becoming clear that continued increases in circuit density will require fairly dramatic changes in the way transistors are designed and ope ...

  5. A Novel Method for Fabricating Ultra Low-Cost Radial Gradient-Index Glass Rods for Optic Communication Networks

    SBC: BEAMTEK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase II project proposed to develop a new fabrication technology that would lead to ultra low-cost, high quality radial gradient refractive index (GRIN) rods, which are widely used in fiber optic communications. Drastic cost reduction isexpected because several cost and labor intensive manufacturing processes will be eliminated, the product yield will be increased significantly compare ...

  8. SiC-Based High Energy Laser Optics

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    SiC-based materials exhibit excellent thermal, mechanical, and optical properties. In addition, excellent polishability has been established for CVD-SiC. The use of CVD-SiC in optical applications requires the joining of dissimilar materials. Thisproposal offers an integrated approach to fabricate optical structures. No conventional joining is required. Ultralightweight, extremely stable stru ...

  9. Design Methodology and Validation for Multifunctional Composite Armor (MSC P0G01-032)

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Nanocomposites consisting of nanotubes in a polymer matrix have the potential tosignificantly enhance the energy absorbing capacity and ballistic impact resistancefor ultr-lightweight personnel armor. Multiwalled nanotubes (MWNT) in polycarbonateshowed substantial compressive strength enhancement and improved ballistic impactresistance over the unreinforced polymer. MWNT in polyurethane also show ...

  10. Environmentally Insensitive Active Decluttering

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The Phase I program demonstrated molybdenum-rhenium (Mo-Re) alloys exhibited negligible erosion and wear in terms of weight loss, which was nearly 100 times less than chromium plated gun steel in vented bomb test at 40,000 lbs/in2 using EX-99 propellant.Laser fusion fabrication was utilized and a short 155mm barrel section, including rifling, was formed that contained Mo-Re functionally graded int ...
