Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-085
Budget: 08/22/16 - 02/18/17
PI: Ed Wyrwas

System development is hierarchical, and the automotive industry has taken advantage of this hierarchy to leverage component and sub-system level testing to ensure that failure modes are discovered early in the development process. Assessing a system to determine the appropriate subsystem or component tests to perform is an expert process that t...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Rochester Institute of Technology

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: MDA15-T005
Budget: 04/25/16 - 11/24/16

DfR Solutions and the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) have formed a team of experts in solder joint reliability and gold embrittlement to perform a series of experiments that will provide the data necessary to create mechanistic reliability models. Critical to any application of these models and of interpreting experimental results is th...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-185
Budget: 05/26/15 - 08/29/17

ABSTRACT:This effort focuses on developing a method to aggregate physics based reliability predictions in dormant missile systems. The approach to aggregating these predictions can be similarly applied to non-dormant systems. DfR Solutions will explore dormant failure mechanism models and produce a tool that allows system aggregation of LRU leve...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-185
Budget: 05/28/14 - 03/01/15

ABSTRACT: Minimally operating or non-operating systems provide little or no opportunity for measuring functional parameters as they degrade, reducing visibility into the condition of system reliability. The negative effects of this phenomenon are seen to a greater degree in systems that are required to operate once with near-perfect reliability...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD08-M01
Budget: 09/14/11 - 09/20/12

This Phase II SBIR is focused on expanding on the Phase I results regarding reballing Ball Grid Array (BGA) parts from tin-silver-copper (SAC305) solder to SnPb eutectic solder. Other solder alloys, printed wiring board surface finishes, the die-package impact, solder ball pitch, different size BGAs (ball count), and test methodologies will be e...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD08-M03
Budget: 09/09/11 - 09/20/12

Knowledge of the potential failure mechanisms and their drivers provides a foundation to this proposal, which is designed to assess the impacts of the harsh environmental stresses on the various packaging technologies proposed. From this assessment, the DoD and their supply chain will have a clear understanding of how the transition to Pb-free e...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD08-M02
Budget: 07/23/09 - 01/23/10

The PoF-based software outlined in this proposal addresses the existing and future challenges of reliably incorporating COTS technology into military applications. The most common process for assessing reliability of military designs with COTS parts is MTBF calculations. The use of MTBF calculations is becoming increasingly inaccurate due to t...
