Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF073-061
Budget: 02/18/14 - 02/18/16

ABSTRACT: General Nano is partnering with Top 3 prime to develop next generation composite systems for air vehicles. The core technology involves integrating lightweight, conductive CNT non-woven sheet materials into aerospace qualified prepreg. The program builds from initial Air Force SBIR investment in long Carbon Nanotube development and m...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-167
Budget: 08/19/13 - 05/19/14

ABSTRACT: Improving heat transfer and enhancing mechanical compliance at interfaces has significant impact on military and commercial applications. For example, silicon carbide power electronics operate at much higher temperatures (~250 oC) than their silicon counterparts (3x) lifetime improvements. We have also characterized the mechanical res...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-149
Budget: 05/20/13 - 11/15/14

General Nano manufactures Carbon Nanotube (CNT) materials for aerospace and defense applications. In the phase I program, General Nano demonstrated the ability to improve the mechanical and electrical properties or existing laminated composites using a proprietary manufacturing method. General Nano's work in performed in partnership with a leadi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N122-110
Budget: 10/17/12 - 04/17/13

This project will manufacture carbon nanotube(CNT) sensor/tape for use in distributed structural health monitoring(SHM) systems that will be integrated into/onto composite materials to provide damage detection, localization, and characterization. Composite test samples with internally integrated sensors will be built and evaluated to detect/loca...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Cincinnati

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD10-T004
Budget: 09/20/12 - 09/20/14

General Nano's Phase II proposal is centered around low cost, high volume manufacturing of Carbon Nanotube (CNT) arrays on stainless steel sheets. The proposed technology is the basis for application development projects involving structural reinforced composites, conductive composites, EMI shielding, stray light absorption, thermal interface m...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-149
Budget: 10/11/11 - 08/10/12

General Nano is the largest manufacture of Carbon Nanotube (CNT) arrays in the United States. General Nano proposes to leverage two of its proprietary CNT form factors to locally reinforce hot spots in composite structural applications. Provisional patents have been filed to protect both novel approaches. There are two primary objectives are...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Cincinnati

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD10-T004
Budget: 05/12/11 - 11/12/11

Success growing long carbon nanotube arrays rests on the preparation of the catalytic substrate. Current best practices use a sputtering, oxidization, evaporation and annealing process to form catalyst particles. This natural self-assembly method is not the best approach. It creates substrates with too many variations, causing nanotubes to grow...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-204
Budget: 01/20/11 - 10/25/11

Carbon Nanotube (CNT) technology has become a promising replacement for traditional copper, aluminum, and metallic based EMI shielding in power and data transmission cables. CNT materials offer the potential for significant weight reduction and improved mechanical performance. The proposed work plan encompasses a team that spans the entire c...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-A2.01
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

The purpose of the proposal is to apply multifunctional carbon electromagnetic materials, including carbon nanotube electrical thread (replaces copper wire) and carbon nanosphere chain magnetic material (replaces iron cores), to build lightweight, high-performance carbon electric motors and actuators for aircraft and spacecraft. Incorporating t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N102-121
Budget: 10/25/10 - 04/25/11
PI: Ge Li

Long CNT arrays are important to develop high performance material for coaxial cable. Long nanotubes reduce the number of junctions and twist angle in CNT yarn, resulting in increased mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties. General Nano, LLC (GN), the lead applicant and University of Cincinnati (UC) spin off company, owns the exclusive l...
