  1. Lightweight Structures Roadside Blast Protection

    SBC: Force Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N09T032

    The goal of this STTR Phase I program is to develop lightweight and volumetrically-efficient structures that can be applied to the underbody and sides of lightweight tactical vehicles such as the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) or Mine-Resistant Ambush Vehicle (MRAP). The design will meet the weight goal to be less than 10 lb/ft2, and to reduce the amount of blast impulse or bla ...

  2. Flexible Body Armor

    SBC: Force Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N08107

    Our SBIR Phase I effort focuses on developing a flexible armor system which is capable of meeting current Level IV protection requirements. We plan to use commercially available materials similar to the current armor plates such as the E-SAPI and X-SAPI plates. Our unique design uses multiple shapes of ceramic tiles in a multi-layered configuration. This design will provide flexibility and increas ...

  3. Rigorous Framework for Distributed Processing with Dynamic Stochastic Information

    SBC: PRISM INFORMATIX, LLC            Topic: OSD09SP7

    The vast and ever-increasing amount of networked information available creates a growing need for information processing systems that distribute decision making rather than centralize data. But distributed decision systems are notoriously hard to analyze. One reason is that the complexity of the design process encourages the use of ad-hoc methods, so it can easily become impossible to say how we ...

  4. Innovative Analysis Tool for Damage Growth From Loaded Composite Fastener Holes


    For the Phase I effort, Global Engineering and Research Technologies (GERT) will develop a validated analysis tool to predict damage initiation and growth as well as residual strength composite multiple-lap joints with many staggered bolts. The analysis tool will be based on the merger of (local) classical continuum theory and (non-local) peridynamic theory. The Phase I effort will consider publis ...

  5. Autonomous Guidance for small UAV Safe Flight Operations in the National Airspace System (NAS)

    SBC: L3 Latitude, LLC            Topic: N08079

    Safe flight by Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in unrestricted airspace, including the National Airspace, will only be possible with effective and reliable Sense and Avoid technologies and techniques. Several projects, including four Office of Naval Research STTR''s, are underway to develop sensors capable of addressing the first aspect. Latitude Engineering, LLC proposes to continue our successful Phase ...

  6. Ultrahigh Loading of DWNTs for Advanced Composites

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N08T017

    The feasibility of developing advanced Polymer Matrix Composites (PMCs) with ultrahigh loading of well dispersed carbon nanotubes has been proven in the Phase I effort by implementing innovative technologies for incorporating very high loading ratios of double-walled carbon nanotubes (DWNTs) in a set of engineering polymer matrices that resulted in exceptionally high mechanical performance of PMCs ...

  7. High Strength, Transparent, Edge Bonded IR Spinel Windows

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N08134

    This Phase II SBIR Navy Program proposes the continued development and feasibility demonstration of producing high strength, bonded, transparent magnesium aluminate spinel windows for next generation aircraft for Navy Unmanned Combat Air System (N-UCAS), ACAT I, Navy ship such as the DDG-1000 which require windows as large as 76 cm x 76 cm x 2 cm, other defense large IR window applications, and ot ...

  8. SiC/SiC Composites with Multiple Concepts to Reduce Foreign-Object-Damage

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N092115

    Existing SiC/SiC composites have shown inferior resistance to foreign-object-damage (FOD) which limits the applications of SiC/SiC composites high potential to reduce weight and increase specific power in gas turbine engines. There are a number of concepts that individually may only minorly increase the resistance to FOD, but when combined in one composite become additive and possibly synergistic ...

  9. Manufacture of Light Weight Corrosion Resistant Ti-6Al-4V Deck Components for USVs Using Very Low Cost Raw Materials in a Rapid Manufacturing Process

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N091047

    The Navy has a need to reduce the weight of unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) to improve their operational efficiency. Many of these vessels have an Al hull and supporting structures. While Al alloys have a low density, their strength is very low. The high strength to weight ratio of titanium alloys such as Ti-6Al-4V (Ti64) would allow a significant reduction in thickness which would translate to a ...

  10. A Unique Process for the Bulk Anodizing of Small Aluminum Parts

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N08114

    Currently, small aluminum parts are racked on aluminum prongs for anodizing which is time consuming, ineffective and costly. Bulk anodizing of small parts without the need for individual racking of parts has become a necessity for anodizing small arms parts to reduce cost, and enhance performance and reliability including uniformity of the anodized layer. Barrel type anodizing in state-of-the-art ...
