  1. Microstructure Informatics for Propagating Uncertainty in Material and Processing to Performance Predictions of AM Titanium Parts

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N16AT004

    During AM of metallic alloys, a material exhibits several complex physical phenomena that impact the spatial distribution of heterogeneous material properties within a built component. Subsequent post-processing alters the already heterogeneous location-specific material properties. This project is to develop a novel methodology for linking the time and length scales of the various physical phenom ...

  2. Advanced, nanostructred low-friction coatings for foil air bearings

    SBC: MesoCoat            Topic: N16AT005

    During Phase I, we propose to develop nanostructured, low friction thermal sprayed coatings that are able to withstand high dynamic loadings. Additionally, the novel coatings will possess a low friction coefficients in humid air, dried conditions and various greases and lubricants. These novel nanostructured coatings will be manufactured by HVOF spraying of solid lubricants based nanostructured po ...

  4. Medium Voltage Direct Current (MVDC) Fault Detection, Localization, and Isolation

    SBC: IAP RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N16AT009

    In this phase I we propose to extend our work on MVDC isolation device to include fault detection, and fault localization circuitry. We have previously developed under an SBIR a 6 kVDC, 2000A isolation device that was built and tested in MVDC ship distribution system laboratory at FSU CAPS. In this phase I we propose to use rogowski coils and hall effect probes to detect faults and we propose to a ...

  5. Integrated Computational Material Engineering Approach to Additive Manufacturing for Stainless Steel (316L)

    SBC: Scientific Forming Technologies Corporation            Topic: N16AT022

    We are proposing to identify an ICME architecture that will enable the multi-scale modeling of additive manufacturing (AM) process at both the component level as well as at the meso-scale level such that the final part quality and performance can be predicted accurately. At the component level, the proposed ICME framework would help in predicting residual stresses, distortion and the necessary sup ...

  6. Metamorphic Buffer Layer Growth for Bulk InAs(x)Sb(1-x) LWIR Detectors

    SBC: BerrieHill Research Corporation            Topic: A16AT009

    This proposal describes a comprehensive effort to develop the required epitaxial materials technologies to support the development and commercialization of next generation, epitaxially grown, engineered III-V LWIR detectors that achieve performance equivalent to much higher cost II-VI detectors. Our team proposes a unique and innovative approach which utilizes MOCVD growth of metamorphic buffer la ...

  7. Metamorphic Buffer Layer Growth for Bulk InAs(x)Sb(1-x) LWIR Detectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: A16AT009

    For the last few decades, there has been great activity aimed at developing III-V based alternatives to HgCdTe for LWIR detection. The goals include improved cost, uniformity, size/weight/power consumption, and performance. This III-V detector activity includes both materials advances and device design. Based on recent developments, there appears to be an excellent opportunity for a breakthrough i ...

  8. A Tomographic Approach for Nadir-Looking Synthetic Aperture Radar (NadirSAR) Imaging

    SBC: Brilligent Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A16AT011

    The team proposes a 3D SAR algorithm based on the principles of radar tomography, which allows for transmitters and receivers to be arbitrarily located in a 3D volume. Data is collected and the output is a complete true 3D image of the reflectivity scene. The tomographic SAR provides detailed features on both horizontal (e.g., flat terrain) and vertical (e.g., building or canyons). With a proper ...

  9. Ceramic Polymer Composite Electrolyte

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A14AT014

    Cornerstone Research Group, Inc. (CRG) has developed a solid Ceramic Polymer Composite Electrolyte (CPCE) for metal-air power sources. The existing electrolyte solutions favor ionic conductivity at the sacrifice of mechanical performance resulting in metal-air batteries that are fragile and unpractical for portable applications. In Phase I, CRG developed a solid CPCE by combining superionic conduc ...
