  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. 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, ...

  6. 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, ...

  7. Development of Single-Layer Universal Combat Uniform Material

    SBC: PELRON CORP.            Topic: N08104

    Protective garments such as the current (JSLIST) commonly use double layer construction consisting of outer shell and inner liner that provides CB protection. The ultimate uniform is bulky, heavy and very expensive due to this design. This SBIR offers an integrated single layer lightweight laminate incorporating CB, WR and FR protection. FR protection would be equivalent or better than existing sy ...

  8. High Efficiency Stretchable Photovoltaic Sheets for Expeditionary Forces

    SBC: Microlink Devices, Inc.            Topic: N09T020

    MicroLink Devices, in collaboration with UCLA, proposes to develop a photovoltaic sheet with a >20% conversion efficiency and a 30% elastic response to biaxial strains. The photovoltaic sheet will consist of an array of inelastic solar cells connected in series by stretchable conductive interconnects. The interconnects will be either corrugated metal or a serpentine wire. Cells and interconnect ...

  9. Development of a Miniature, Vibro-Mechanical Energy Harvester for Powering Wireless Sensors

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: N07178

    A major barrier to the widespread adoption of wireless sensors for structural health monitoring is the requirement to power the network of wireless nodes. Batteries have a limited lifespan, adding significant size, weight, and costs to the wireless sensor network,and may represent a long term environmental problem. Battery maintenance can be eliminated by harvesting energy from the environment. Fo ...

  10. Control Surface Buffet Load Measurement

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: N091013

    Structural monitoring of Navy aircraft is of critical importance as the fleet ages. One critical area includes the control surfaces, which are subject to intense, dynamic buffet loading which can lead to structural cracking. The highly transient nature of buffet loading makes it difficult to measure using conventional sensors. We propose to solve this problem by combining a network of time-synchro ...
