Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-064
Budget: 02/10/10 - 10/23/11

There exists a continuing need to reduce friction and wear and extend the life of aircraft engine components that operate under high wear conditions. These components are crucial to mission success and safety, and military operational readiness. Engine components are complicated to overhaul and very expensive to replace, solutions that mitigate ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF081-040
Budget: 06/24/09 - 06/24/11

Having successfully demonstrated the concept of a smart wear resistant coating during our phase I project we shall design and fabricate a smart wear resistant PVD coating and sensor package for 3 distinct commercial applications: (1) jet engines, (2) cutting & forming tools and (3) friction and wear test devices. Modern PVD wear coatings can pr...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-064
Budget: 01/08/09 - 10/08/09

The goal of this SBIR program is to further develop the technology of i-KOTE® solid film lubricant coatings via well controlled experiments to explore the high temperature capabilities of doped nanostructured films of i-KOTE® using boron compounds as chameleon additives. The i-KOTE® family of solid film lubricants are a complex combination of ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF081-040
Budget: 05/19/08 - 05/19/09

This project is a collaboration between Tribologix, Inc. with core expertise in the deposition and testing of hard wear resistant coatings, and Mound Laser & Photonics Center, Inc., for development of a low cost smart coating wear sensor, and General Electric Aviation, a manufacturer of Gas Turbine Engines for military and commercial applicatio...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-131
Budget: 04/24/06 - 04/24/09

Our advanced surface engineering technologies provide new and broader operating windows for moving mechanical parts in extreme environments. Several of our advanced solid film lubricant coating technologies have been successfully evaluated as viable candidates for RL-10 rocket engine turbopumps. The turbomachinery used for rocketry operate unde...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-098
Budget: 04/14/06 - 08/14/07

A novel surface treatment technology is proposed to provide wear resistance to PMCs. Our technologies can economically modify the surface of PMC components into a wear resistant surface to effectively distribute thermal and mechanical stresses and provide erosion resistance to sand. Our surface technologies simplify design and reduce overall pa...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-131
Budget: 04/26/05 - 04/26/06

Several advanced solid film lubricant coating processes are evaluated to be used for turbopump gears operating at high speeds and high contact pressures in an RL-10 rocket engine at cryogenic temperatures. Based on existing application data concerning the performance of the proposed advanced coatings a significant improvement in turbopump gear o...
