Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N142-125
Budget: 02/25/16 - 08/25/16

Optomec and its industry partners propose applying Optomec's proprietary laser engineered net shape (LENS) additive manufacturing technology and methodology to the fabrication of refractory metal components. These fabrications are related to the post-boost control system (PBCS) hot-gas valves and manifold components for the D5 Trident II missile...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Tech Research Corp.

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T021
Budget: 08/04/14 - 06/04/15

A new generation of additive manufacturing (AM) techniques is expanding the possibilities of sensor and antenna design, with important implications for the performance and cost of finished devices. Optomec, Inc., with its proprietary Aerosol Jet technology, is a leader in the conformal printing of conductors and dielectrics on unusual geometries...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-064
Budget: 06/30/14 - 04/09/15

ABSTRACT: Optomec, Inc., in collaboration with Triumph Engine Control Systems and The Ohio State University, proposes to develop an additive metal manufacturing (AMM) process and techniques for the repair of TF33 (P&W JT3D) fuel pump housing as well as other similar components of interest with critical seal and bearing surfaces that wear in serv...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Minnesota

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT26
Budget: 01/22/13 - 01/22/15

ABSTRACT: The goal of this phase II proposal is to develop a commercial platform for printing high performance, single-walled carbon nanotube transistor circuits on large-area plastic substrate. Automated processes will be developed for the room temperature printing of metal, semiconductor, and dielectric materials with micron-scale alignment...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Minnesota

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT26
Budget: 05/26/10 - 02/26/11

Aerosol Jet printing is proposed as a method for printing large area, CNT-based transistor arrays on flexible substrate. The teaming relationship combines expertise in high resolution printing along with device and materials expertise. All semiconductor, dielectric, and conductive materials comprising the TFTs will be solution processed and pr...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-034
Budget: 12/22/09 - 12/22/11

Integrally Bladed Rotors (IBRs) are important in the design of modern aircraft engines. They offer attractive performance benefits, but due to their expense they require robust repair schemes, in order to avoid costly replacement during overhaul. The Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENS) process has demonstrated repair of IBRs without compromising...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-174
Budget: 07/27/09 - 07/27/10
PI: Mike Renn

Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) combine fuel and air electrochemically to produce clean, high quality electric power and offer significantly reduced fuel consumption rates relative to heavy fuel engines or diesel power generators. Over the past 2 years, Optomec has worked closely with AFRL and Wright State University to apply its patented Aerosol...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-034
Budget: 05/06/08 - 10/14/09

Blisks are important in the design of modern aircraft engines. They offer attractive performance benefits, but due to their expense they require robust repair schemes, in order to avoid costly replacement during overhaul. The Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENS) process has demonstrated repair of blisks without compromising mechanical integrity...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-174
Budget: 03/28/07 - 07/28/10

Optomec s M3D technology will be utilized to fabricate functionally graded fuel cell structures, a methodology that could result in significant performance/weight improvements over existing designs. One of the main applications for the light-weight, high performance cells is in UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) which are being used increasingly i...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-174
Budget: 03/31/06 - 12/31/07

The use of functionally-graded materials in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) can improve performance and reliability of the devices. However, cost effective and dependable manufacturing methods to achieve these functionally graded materials have been hard to come by. Optomec s M3D technology is ideal for this application as materials can be perf...
