Rocket Propulsion Supporting Technology

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD08-PR2
Budget: 08/05/08 - 02/05/09
PI: Mr. Dean Baker

Refractory carbide materials posses the erosion resistance and high temperature strength required for the severe environments experienced by cutting tools, well bore equipment, and rocket nozzles. Refractory carbides (e.g. WC, TaC, and TiC) are usually formed by press and sinter techniques with an additional metallic binder or by forging with s...

Low Cost, Light Weight Materials for Mirrors

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Northwestern University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-2
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08
PI: Mr. Dean Baker

During the phase I program Northwestern and APS, Inc., have manufactured several different materials systems that are lighter than Beryllium and stiffer than Aluminum. These high specific strength materials are also easily fabricated into larger shapes or even net shape processed. The mechanical (tensile and modulus) and thermal physical (CTE, ...

Engineered Composites for USC Applications

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08
PI: Mr. Asit Biswas

Ultrasupercritical (USC) steam boilers will operate at higher temperature/pressure than subcritical and supercritical steam boilers in service today. However, the majority of current high-temperature materials do not posses the desired characteristics for the operating conditions of a USC unit (760 C/35MPa). This project will develop innovative ...
