  1. Environmentally-Robust Matrices for SiC Composites

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N091011

    Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) are emerging as mission-critical materials for a broad range of defense applications and among them, their utility for next-generation aero-turbine components are currently being pursued. SiC-based CMCs are leading candidates for this application due to their high strength, low density, and superior toughness at elevated temperatures. In this Phase I project, a new ...

  2. Enhanced CMC Performance Via Sealant Application

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N091020

    High cost and poor environmental performance of CMCs are limiting their deployment in many defense applications. In particular, the JSF platform requires improved durability for a targeted CMC system which is already qualified and in production. Primary motivation for this Phase I effort is to reduce cost. CMCs, although known for their benefits of lightweight and better performance at elevated te ...

  3. High-Temperature Amorphous Coating for CMCs for Protection against Oxygen Embrittlement

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N04250

    This Phase II.5 effort will further develop and mature the sealing technology relevant to JSF exhaust ceramic matrix composite (CMC) nozzle components. Significant concerns related to the poor durability of the CMC in the engine environment remain and this sealing technology, under Phase II, has demonstrated excellent capability to protect SiC-based CMCs in harsh environments. Under the Phase II.5 ...

  4. The development of a bio-inspired magnetoelectrosensory navigation system

    SBC: Kinea Design, LLC            Topic: N09T024

    In addition to their ubiquitous abilities for navigation at small spatial scales, a host of animals migrate long distances through the open ocean or skies. The mechanisms underlying these powerful navigational abilities are slowly being decoded. This progress offers the opportunity to develop low cost navigational systems for use in future autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) designs. As future AUV ...

  5. Self-Healing, Self-Diagnosing Fiber Reinforced Multifunctional Composites

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: A09096

    Multifunctional composite materials would alleviate longstanding problems in composite structures associated with multiple types of damage mechanisms such as mechanical/thermal fatigue, microcracking, and debonding. Self-healing polymers consist of a healing agent that is stored in microcapsules and released whenever cracking occurs in the polymer. The healing agent flows into the cracks and is ...

  6. Design and Optimization of Radar Systems to Assist Rotorcraft Piloting in Adverse Environments

    SBC: DELCROSS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N08141

    Rotorcraft are increasingly turning toward high-resolution Ka- through W-band radar sensors that can image terrain and obstructions but also see through the particulates that confound infrared and optical sensors, such as sand, ocean spray, and fog. As with any onboard sensor, designers must consider the antenna/platform interaction, and mature tools exist to address this type of problem. However, ...

  7. Versatile Micro/Nano-mechanical Load Frame For In

    SBC: Psylotech LLC            Topic: A09055

    Bio-inspired polymer micro and nano composites motivate next generation armor materials. Predictive multi-scale models require small scale test equipment. The proposed microscale Universal Testing Machine (mUTS) aims at filling the void in commercial micro and nanoscale materials testing instrumentation. The methods and hardware proposed enable concurrent high resolution imaging of specimens by ...

  8. Microcontainment System for Photolytically Induced Delivery of Biocide Against Biological Agents

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A07130

    In the Phase I program, EPIR Technologies successfully developed a technology for the rapid high efficiency neutralization of biological contaminants using a novel photo-triggered release mechanism. The development of polymeric biocide-carrier capabilities with embedded photosensitizers in this Phase I program allowed EPIR to establish improved standards decontamination. Innovative stabilization p ...

  10. Corrosion Resistant Naval Alloys: Innovative Multi-Scale Computational Modeling and Simulation Tools

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: OSD09C01

    EPIR Technologies Inc. proposes to develop a multi-scale modeling tool based on the integration of finite element methods (FEM), molecular dynamics (MD) and cellular automata (CA) that can simulate the evolution of pitting (one of the most important forms of corrosion) and the resultant mechanical properties of naval alloys on a macroscopic size scale, namely hundreds of micrometers. Specifically, ...
