  3. Novel Honeycomb Hollow Carbon Fiber Composite

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    The current commercial polyacrylonitrile (PAN) based carbon fibers such as IM7 and T300 are limited in modulus at 155 and 130 N/tex respectively. In addition, these fibers are high density (1.75 – 1.93 g/cc) and are known to exhibit buckling behavior under compression stress. If these shortcomings are overcome, a number of new applications within DOD as well as civilian markets can be enabled.  ...

  6. Development of eVTOL Aeroacoustics Software based on Vorcat CFD

    SBC: VORCAT, INC.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Interest in abating noise pollution from future eVTOL vehicles utilized in urban environments is a major motivating factor for this proposed study.  Past strategies for predicting noise about aircraft and rotorcraft tended to be highly empirical leading to limited generalization and accuracy. On the other hand, modern acoustics methodologies can be employed as an effective and comprehensive means ...

  7. Development of Graphene Batteries for Use in Aviation Applications

    SBC: Carbon Solutions Inc            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    This project aims to develop a technology for the preparation of scalable graphene batteries. The anodes are comprised of functionalized graphene sheets with basal plane nanoholes and assembled in a densely-packed covalently-linked framework. The anodes are prelithiated using a commercially scalable process, which enriches the electrodes with Li ions and forms a stable interface for increased cycl ...

  9. Conformable and Stretchable Sensing System (CaSSS)

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and University of New Mexico (UNM) propose a stretchable, conformable sensor net (smart skin) that can be wrapped around an aircraft, spacecraft, or other object to provide situational awareness of the local surroundings as well as vehicle status monitoring. The conformal material will flex and stretch as needed to make a one-size-fits-most skin that can conform as nee ...

  10. A study of eVTOL safety and controllability using Vorcat and HAMSTR CFD

    SBC: VORCAT, INC.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    This Phase I proposal will examine the feasibility of using Vorcat’s implementation of a grid-free vortex method coupled with the HAMSTR near-body flow solver to provide accurate simulations of the flow over modern, multirotor, eVTOL vehicles. The combination of these codes will result in a reliable CFD tool with the capability to accurately simulate eVTOL aerodynamics over a large set of fli ...
