Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A11-063
Budget: 05/18/11 - 11/18/11

The Army is in need of an improved material for use in bridge structures. Key requirements are reduced weight relative to current metallic structures (steel and aluminum), high strength, resistance to catastrophic failure, attractive cost, and resistance to environmental factors (weather, corrosion, erosion, extreme temperatures, UV, etc.). To...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A10-063
Budget: 12/10/10 - 06/10/11

The Army is in need of an improved armor solution for ground vehicles that possesses modularity, reduced weight, attractive cost, high ballistic resistance, durability, and tolerance to environmental affects. To meet this need, the use of large panels made by casting metal around an array of ceramic tiles is proposed. Such a product will posse...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N101-002
Budget: 10/07/10 - 04/07/11

A novel high performance, lightweight vehicle armor system for the Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV) is proposed. Following past work with perforated metals for weight efficient armor, the present work examines ceramic-based armor systems where the ceramic component has a novel design (e.g., perforations). The program will combine the strengt...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA05-024
Budget: 04/05/06 - 10/05/06

Reaction bonded (RB) SiC and B4C offer high specific stiffness (modulus/density) comparable to beryllium (Be) and higher thermal stability (thermal conductivity/CTE) than Be. However, these materials have low fracture toughness (4 MPa m1/2 compared to 8-10 for Be) and hence have not been considered viable Be-replacement materials for the MDA sys...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A03-179
Budget: 01/24/06 - 12/31/08

A Phase I program was completed in which a non-ceramic SAPI solution was developed. The system contained a hard-faced metal matrix composite (MMC) tile in place of the brittle ceramic tile. Ballistic testing showed positive results and drop testing showed excellent durability. The Phase II program aims to continue the work, leading to an opti...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-041
Budget: 05/14/04 - 05/18/05

M Cubed manufactures many commercial components out of reaction bonded SiC and B4C on a large scale. The key advantages of these materials are high specific stiffness (high modulus and low density) and high thermal stability (high thermal conductivity and low CTE). However, these materials have limited toughness precluding their use in many pote...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A03-179
Budget: 12/12/03 - 06/11/04

An extremely capable team of M Cubed Technologies and Simula is proposing to replace existing ceramic-based small arms protective insert (SAPI) personnel armor plates with hard-faced metal matrix composite (MMC)-based products. This new product will offer much greater durability due to the relatively high fracture toughness of MMCs relative to ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-241
Budget: 12/05/03 - 12/05/05

In a current Phase I program, an extremely capable team is developing an innovative approach to the design and fabrication of ceramic-based armor panels for commercial vehicles. The concept consists of two key features, namely (1) the use of 1-piece, large contoured reaction bonded ceramic tiles and (2) backing the tiles with low cost ballistic...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO02-016
Budget: 08/15/03 - 08/15/05

M Cubed has developed three key processes (PRIMEX, DIMOX and reaction bonding) for manufacturing advanced materials components. The processes have been used to make a variety of components for commercial and military systems making them lighter, stiffer, highly functional and resistant to many threats. In the Phase I program, M Cubed demonstrate...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA03-048
Budget: 06/24/03 - 12/24/03

An extremely capable team of M Cubed Technologies and Fraunhofer USA is proposing to replace high cost, toxic Be-based metals with innovative, Mg metal matrix composites (MMCs) in stiffness critical structural applications. In short, the program will evaluate processing of Mg MMCs via both pressureless infiltration and squeeze casting. Variabl...
