Research Institution
The objective of the Phase II effort for SBIR Topic No. N102-144, Hazardous Material Satellite Storage Locker, is to develop a cost effective, corrosion resistant hazardous material storage locker that meets all of the shipboard deployment requirements and has acceptable weight and acquisition cost. Texas Research Institute Austin, Inc (TRI/Austin) will optimize the material, architecture, and design of the satellite storage locker developed in the Phase I effort to meet the requirements for performance, weight, and cost. Performance requirements include corrosion resistance, fire performance, shock capability, and durability. TRI/Austin"s design is based on the use of a proprietary phenolic based resin system and low cost glass fiber woven and nonwoven fabrics. The design is capable of meeting UL 1709 fire curve performance criteria. The Phase II effort will optimize the locker design, define the manufacturing processes necessary to produce the locker at low cost, certify the design for performance, and demonstrate a production process that will meet the demand for the lockers. Six lockers, 2 of each size, 12 gallon, 15 gallon, and 30 gallon will be placed in the Fleet for evaluation. Low rate initial production will be demonstrated in preparation for Phase III transition.
