  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 ...

  6. CMAS mitigation for TBCs using a novel aluminum-phosphate based overlay coating

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N06032

    Environmental degradation of aerospace turbine components is a major concern for aircraft and power generation systems, and various surface treatments are utilized to extend the lifetimes of these critical components. This Phase II project is targeted toward extending the durability of thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) on hot section turbine components. TBCs are highly susceptible to degradation b ...

  7. Nano-BiCMOS Night Vision Camera

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A08008

    Night vision capability is one of the most important battlefield advantages of the U.S. military, especially in today’s asymmetric warfare. The Gen III night vision goggles in service today is based on the vacuum tube technology with a semiconductor photo cathode, resulting in limitations on view angle, size, manufacturing cost and device operating lifetime. The requirement of special training i ...

  8. High Sensitivity Rugged Array Detectors for Field Deployed Instruments: Low-Light Level Camera for Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Ram

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A06065

    Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and Raman spectroscopy are developing rapidly for chemical and biochemical sensing applications. There is an urgent need for high-sensitivity detectors so as to minimize sample quantity and maximize detection range from the source. In most field-deployable spectrometers, a photo-detector array is used for analyzing the spectral contents. The sensitivitie ...
