  1. Innovative Low-cost, In-situ Consolidation Head for Complex Geometry Thermoplastic Fiber Placement

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N08135

    Accudyne proposes a SBIR program, endorsed by Sikorsky, Cytec Engineered Materials, and NASA-LaRC, to develop a cost-effective thermoplastic automated tow placement (ATP) process and demonstrate it by fabricating and testing a complex contoured skin (Phase 1) and a CH-53K rotorcraft lower cabin or ramp skin (Phase 2). The process employs in situ consolidation, avoiding the autoclave. The targete ...

  5. Dropwise Condensation on Hydrophobic Wick Structures

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD08EP7

    The proposed SBIR project will develop an innovative heat transfer mechanism involving dropwise condensation promoted by a non-wetting self-assembled monolayer (SAM) on a porous metal wick. Dropwise condensation on a bare surface has shown the ability to increase condensation heat transfer coefficients by orders of magnitude over film condensation. By condensing on a wick, heat transfer coefficien ...

  8. A Graphical Database for Streamlined Single Crystal Transducer Design

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N08063

    Single crystal piezoelectrics promise to revolutionize underwater acoustic and ultrasonic transducers with broader bandwidths, greater resolution, greater range, reduced transducer size and weight, and reduced power requirements. However, there are many differences between the properties of single crystal and ceramic piezoelectrics which make it difficult to simply replace ceramic with crystal in ...

  9. High Energy Wound Capacitors Based on Flexible Oxide Films

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N08076

    Compact, high energy capacitors that can store > 5J/g are required for next generation pulse power devices. Increase in energy storage of capacitors enables reduction in size of the capacitor banks. The key to reducing the size of these systems is to develop capacitors with much higher energy density (5-10 J/cc) than polymer film capacitors based on biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP, 1 – 2 ...

  10. Crystal Tensile Properties for High Power, 1-3 Composite Projector Design

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N08061

    In this Phase I SBIR program TRS Technologies will develop high power, high frequency 1-3 composite transducers for high resolution imaging at ranges sufficient for naval applications such as mine classification. In order to understand and model the performance of 1-3 composite projectors, we will measure the electromechanical properties of crystals subjected to tensile stress. We will also init ...
