Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-074
Budget: 11/08/06 - 05/08/07

In battle field environments reliable compact refrigeration systems are critical to maintain vital life support temperatures for soldiers, as well as for high power electronic systems, and temperature critical sensors (i.e., infra-red, night vision etc.). Conventional refrigeration systems are cumbersome and have many moving parts that are pron...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-232
Budget: 05/01/06 - 05/01/07

This research develops an array of durable micro-machined valves capable of operating at frequencies in excess of 10 kHz. Standard lithographic process are used to manufacture metallic check valves on the order of 100 microns with an array contained within a centimeter area. The fundamental resonance frequency of the valves is above 20 kHz and...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-032
Budget: 11/18/05 - 05/18/06

Future combat systems will involve "smart" munitions with MEMS inertial measurement units (IMU) to control positioning and targeting. Precision targeting is problematic with these new IMU sensors because the vibration and shock during launch and flight can cause drift in the sensors. A passive vibration module is proposed to dampen these extra...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California, Irvine

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST041-001
Budget: 07/19/04 - 09/25/05

Traditional refrigeration systems based on the compression and expansion of refrigerant gases are complicated and limited to large dimensions. The pumps and compressors required makes it difficult if no impossible to scale down the system to miniature sizes that would be portable. Thermoacoustic based refrigeration systems promises to provide ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N01-168
Budget: 12/18/03 - 12/18/05

This proposed project will advance the capabilities of Fortis Technologies' patent-pending, magnetostrictive particulate composite dampers. These composites passively (a great advantage in simplicity and effectiveness over other recently developed active material dampers) provide damping through domain wall switching, a non-conservative action ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N01-072
Budget: 11/18/02 - 11/18/04

The Navy has a need for new transduction materials to develop new sonar projectors that operate over greater frequency bandwidths, with greater Source Levels (SL). One proposed hybrid transducer design incorporates laminated Terfenol-D materials for the magnetostrictive drive element. However, the laminating approach limits the design sco...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N01-168
Budget: 11/13/01 - 05/13/02

Fortis Technology proposes to use their novel manufacturing technique based on magnetic fields to distribute nano-particulate in a polymer resin and apply it in thin-layer on turbomachinery blades for vibration damping. These magnetostrictive particulates, to be included in the resin, provide damping through domain wall switching, a non-conserv...
