  1. Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) and Lithium-ion Polymer (Li-polymer) Battery Safety

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD09EP1

    Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) has demonstrated that electroactive polymer coatings (EAP) may be applied to the surface of the cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries to protect against catastrophic cell failure. These EAP coatings form an electrochemical"switch"that can prevent catastrophic failure in lithium-ion batteries by reversibly changing from a conductor to an insulator on overdischarg ...

  2. High Performance Piezoceramic Coatings for Ultrasound Applications

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACX proposes an innovative new process for the manufacture of smart structures using a High Velocity Oxy-Fuel (HVOF) thermal spray process. This simple, multi-step process will be capable of depositing electroded piezoceramic coatings. The coatings will be poled while still hot, reducing poling times and voltages while increasing poling efficiency. Process times will be extremely short. The pr ...

  3. Analysis and Improvement of Trivalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The trend toward replacement of highly toxic chemicals with less hazardous alternatives has created the demand for replacement of chromate conversion coatings for corrosion protection of aluminum alloys. Aluminum alloys are the predominate structural material used in aircraft because of their high strength-to-weight ratios, affordability and processability. Aluminum is subject to catastrophic fail ...

  5. A Five Volt Lithium Battery

    SBC: COVALENT ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I SBIR program we propose to develop a novel high voltage (5V) lithium-ion battery suitable for portable electronics equipmentand transportation applications. Lithium-ion batteries are already commercially available and typically consist of carbon anode, non-aqueous electrolyte and lithium transition metal oxide cathode such as LiCoO2, LiNiO2 or LiMnO4. These systems have an operat ...

  6. Hand Held High Resolution Imagin Devices for Aircraft Substructures

    SBC: Eikos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Eikos LLC will evaluate two approaches, millimeter waves and opto-acoustics, for locating edges and holes in substructure that are hidden under exterior panels and skins during aircraft assembly. These devices will work in a camera-like fashion to allow non-destructive remote imaging. Eikos has developed promising approaches to both techniques that have the potential to be low cost and easy to u ...

  7. TOS Enhanced Phthalonitrile Resins with MDC Composite Stitching Technology

    SBC: Eikos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Eikos LLC will modify and enhance the chemistry of the NRL developed phthalonitrile resin to meet the 700F TOS requirements of high temperature RTM and RFI aerospace composites. Eikos is intimately familiar with the chemistry of the phthalonitrile resin because of our efforts to scale the production of the current bases resin from the laboratory to the pilot plant. Eikos has teamed with McConne ...

  8. Liquid Crystal-Based Underwater Imager

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The contractor proposes a new approach to underwater imaging that directly converts a two-dimmensional acoustic pressure wave into an electronic requirements fo convential piezo-element arrays. The imager relies on the piezo-birefringent properties of a nematic liquid crystal panel that serves as both sensor and display. The capability of nematic liquid crystals has been established and publishe ...

  9. SMART SENSORS USING OPTICAL FIBER INTERCONNECTS AND DISTRIBUTED MEMS

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR program would develop practical methods for the interconnection, addressing and control of large numbers of distributed MEMS-based sensing and actuation elements using optical fiber multiplexing techniques. Such interconnected sensor/actuator arrays have immediate and long-term applications in the instrumentation and control of adaptive aircraft, spacecraft and hydrocraft structures, fl ...

  10. Optical Fiber-Based Corrosion System Using Electrochemically Active Coatings

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the proposed program is to address the high service costs of the current U.S. Navy fleet of aircraft by developing a distributed optical fiber sensor system that will help reduce the costs associated with corrosion damage and extend the lifetime of existing aircraft. Annual corrosion of Navy metallic structures has been estimated as high as $1 billion. Additional costs aris ...
