  1. Low Cost Production of Carbon Monofluoride (CFx) for Lithium Batteries

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: DLA122002

    Li/CFx primary batteries are considered to be a superior choice for military applications that require long life, light weight and very low self-discharge. The high cost of current carbon monofluoride materials, however, adds significantly to the total cost of the battery. Reactive Innovations, LLC (RIL) proposes to develop a method to produce CFx materials with over a 50% cost saving. The process ...

  2. Advanced Transparent Armor Materials and Manufacturing Methods

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: SOCOM14002

    "Current glass-based transparent armor has two major deficiencies: 1) It is very heavy, and therefore can compromise performance and helicopter transportability of vehicles; and 2) It is very thick, and therefore can compromise visual signature of vehicles. Advanced technology ceramic transparent armor removes both these deficiencies and provides a twofold improvement in performance, but costs 6-1 ...

  3. An Integrated Li-ion Battery Manufacturing Process for Improved Safety and Decreased Battery Cost

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: DLA122002

    Commercial separators for Li-ion battery applications consist of microporous membranes that prevent contact between electrodes and enable free ion flow in the cell. Major drawbacks of these separators include their complex manufacturing process which adds cost to the battery and insufficient protection against thermal runaway reactions at elevated temperatures. This project addresses these limitat ...

  4. Inconspicuous Up-Armoring of Vehicles Using Segmented Ceramic and Metallic Elements

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM14003

    Triton Systems Inc.(Triton), together with our partner Technical Products Inc. (TPI) will conduct a feasibility study to evaluate options for armoring non standard commercial vehicles (NSCV) in an unobtrusive fashion using austere mechanical facilities corresponding to expedient basing in the area of operations. Triton has wide experience in metallic, ceramic and composite armoring solutions and ...

  5. Low Profile Closed Coolant System for High Speed Combatant Craft

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: SOCOM14005

    High speed combatant craft utilized by SOCOM, such as the Riverine (SOC-R), use pumped raw water to provide engine cooling for the twin marine diesel engines. While raw water provides an essentially limitless heat sink, it often contains debris which can clog engine strainers, causing the engines to overheat. Thus, engine performance, as well as maintenance, is negatively affected by the use of th ...

  6. Development of Advanced Battery Manufacturing Techniques

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: DLA142001

    Physical Sciences Inc. together with EaglePicher Technologies will demonstrate that PSIs proprietary coating techniques can be employed to reduce the cost of producing lithium ion cells while improving the energy density and safety. Testing will clearly demonstrate the ability to increase the active material content and electrode density, provide in-situ short circuit protection, and reduce both ...

  7. Logistically Robust, Long Life, High Power Rechargeable Battery

    SBC: CAMX Power LLC            Topic: DLA142001

    CAMX Power proposes to develop a high power, long life lithium-ion (Li-ion) vehicle battery that can be completely de-energized for logistical transportation and storage purposes, giving it exceptional shelf life and making it intrinsically safe under conditions of relaxed environmental controls and with no or minimal state-of-health monitoring. This novel battery, based on CAMX Powers proprietar ...

  8. Reduced Manufacturing Cost for Li-ion Batteries

    SBC: CAMX Power LLC            Topic: DLA142001

    Lithium-ion batteries are being increasingly deployed in DoD applications as the result of their very high energy and power densities, but their manufacturing costs are high because of relatively long production timescales, The primary factor limiting throughput in Li-ion cell production is the long time required for the formation and aging sequence in which cells are cycled to render the cell op ...

  9. Affordable Titanium Alloy Fittings and Other Discrete Parts by Powder Metal Manufacturing technology

    SBC: DYNAMET TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: DLA10001

    The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) procures significant quantities of Ti-6Al-4V hydraulic fittings in a wide range of types and sizes in maintaining legacy aircraft. These fittings are machined from forged preforms or, in the case of low volume procurement, are machined from wrought plate stock. The proposed technology is a radical

  10. Method for Improving Precision Grinding Quality and Productivity

    SBC: COVENTRY ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: DLA10001

    The objective of this proposal is to develop a self calibrating, low cost adaptive precision grinding system which provides real time workpiece taper and Scientific Measurement and Adaptive Response Techniques (SMART) control. This system incorporates the knowledge gained during the previous 20 plus years of research to make grinding a science rather than an art. Our approach utilizes a unique rot ...
