Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-023
Budget: 10/01/09 - 09/30/11

Superior high-temperature performance requirements for highly stressed rotating components of the compressor section in advanced Army turboshaft engines cannot be met by the existing materials and require sophisticated materials solution concepts. The objective of this SBIR program is to develop a reinforced high temperature titanium material sy...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA08-005
Budget: 03/27/09 - 09/27/09

FMW Composite Systems, Inc., in collaboration with Aerojet (OEM), proposes to develop nano-enhanced titanium alloy components for advanced light weight Divert and attitude control systems (DACS), which are capable of replacing current materials to achieve improved performance, net weight reductions, improve producibility, improve reliability, an...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-023
Budget: 10/22/08 - 04/21/09

FMW Composite Systems, Inc., in collaboration with Honeywell Aerospace (Engine Manufacturer) proposes to develop a nano dispersion reinforced titanium metal matrix composite (TiMMC) system that can operate at higher temperatures for impeller applications in advanced Army turboshaft engines. After determining the goal operating temperatures and p...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-2
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

For over 15 years, FMW Composite Systems has developed Metal Matrix Composite manufacturing methodologies for fabricating silicon-carbide-fiber-reinforced titanium components, also known as Titanium Matrix Composites (TMC), for the aerospace industry. These efforts have resulted in successfully flight qualifying three TMC components, including a...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-199
Budget: 09/09/05 - 12/07/07

The higher Mach number flight capability required in future missile systems has necessitated the development of advanced materials capable of surviving the increased thermal loads expected in these systems. Although previous research has indicated that titanium matrix composites (TMCs) are a potential solution to this problem, the high cost of t...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-248
Budget: 04/15/05 - 08/15/07

The current approach to providing thermal protection to aero-vehicles is to use a parasitic thermal protection system (TPS) that protects the primary structure while transferring the aerodynamic loads to the same primary structure. This approach increases the complexity of the vehicle system that, in turn, complicates fabrication and inspection...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-192
Budget: 03/31/05 - 03/31/06

The recent successful flight tests of a scramjet have moved to the cycle closer to military application. One key barrier to military utilization of the scrajet is high weights in the engine. The current engine uses an inconel actively cooled wall on the engine. Recent developments in Titanium Matrix Components (TMC) offer a breakthrough poten...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-237
Budget: 07/02/04 - 07/02/06

The continued development of hypersonic vehicles and high performance space access vehicles has highlighted the importance of light-weight, load-bearing structures capable of prolonged exposure at elevated temperatures. The optimal solution to this problem would be a hot primary structure capable of supporting the required loads at elevated temp...
