  3. Chromate-Free Fuel Tank Coating

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: AF141168

    ABSTRACT:Current aircraft fuel tank coatings provide excellent corrosion protection but do so by incorporating chromates.Unfortunately, these hexavalent chromates are carcinogens, and their use and disposal is strictly regulated.An ideal aircraft fuel tank coating would provide effective corrosion protection without the use of chromates.In this SBIR project TDA will develop a chromate free, room t ...

  4. Novel Rewarming Technique for Cyropreserved Tissue

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP15014

    TDAs proposes to develop a novel RF heating process for rewarming cryogenically preserved tissues and organs. TDAs approach is to optimize the RF frequency and power, along with the chemical composition, size and morphology of infused nanoparticles so that they heat tissue samples rapidly and uniformly. In this manner, the cryoprotectant solutions pass from the vitrified state to the liquid stat ...

  7. Conformal High-Efficiency Emitter Systems Enhancement (CHEESE)

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: AF141045

    ABSTRACT:In this Phase II effort, FIRST RF proposes a pragmatic approach targeting small UAS systems but easily scalable to meet the demands of any platform. Small tactical aircraft have drag constraints but have challenges of extremely tight payload restrictions, limited internal space and available power. For these platforms, FIRST RF proposes a low profile, multi-band antenna requiring no inter ...

  8. Multi-Layer Deep Structure NDI

    SBC: Innovative Materials Testing Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF151159

    ABSTRACT: An innovative NDI method, General Remote Field Eddy Current (GRFEC) method, is proposed for aircraft multi-layer deep structure NDI. GRFEC method is characterized by its deep penetration and high sensitivity features in multi-layer and complex deep structure NDI. The outstanding features have been proved by the AFRL validation/evaluation programs and published at 2014 AA&S Conference and ...
