Abstract
The objective of this SBIR program is to adapt NanoSonic"s high temperature, ballistic resistant HybridSilTM nanocomposites for use as next generation potting materials with exceptional thermal durability, g-force resilience, and negligible variation (<10 %) in dynamic material parameters between -40 to 60 C. This effort will build from NanoSonic"s pioneering HybridSil technology which has demonstrated extreme thermal durability (ASTM E-1354, ASTM E-1321, ASTM E-84) and passed the full scale ISO 9705 room corner burn test to qualify as"fire restrictive"per the IMO. Further, HybridSil has also demonstrated remarkable blast protective properties through 0.50 caliber FSP V50 (MIL-STD-662F) and C4 landmine testing with SwRI. Leveraging a unique technical foundation inherently suited for supporting demanding thermal and g-force survivability, NanoSonic will gracefully adjust the dynamic mechanical, thermal expansion, modulus, and tensile strength of metal oxide HybridSil nanocomposites to meet the performance targets. In support of a rapid transition to a broad spectrum of electronic applications, NanoSonic"s HybridSilTM resins have a current production capacity of 8,000 lbs/day and have been integrated onto combat active DoD platforms for trial demonstrations. Further, NanoSonic has contacted multiple defense prime contractors and received considerable interest toward rapid Phase III integration.
