Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-170
Budget: 07/06/06 - 10/10/08

The objective of this Effort is the development of a Tantalum-Zirconium bonding technique suitable for air-to-air warheads and other munitions applications. Phase concentrates on proving the Metallurgical feasibility of joining, by HIP (hot isostatic pressing) diffusion bonding, 1.5mm zirconium sheet to 3mm tantalum plate in a sandwich configur...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-170
Budget: 06/29/05 - 03/29/06

The objective of this proposal is the development of a tantalum to zirconium bonding technique suitable for air-to-air warheads and other munitions. The chosen approach is hot isostatic pressing diffusion bonding. Because of related experience with HIP diffusion bonding of titanium to tantalum, and because of similarities in chemical behavior ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N98-141
Budget: 11/20/00 - 11/19/02

Phase I results were extremely positive and a plan for Phase II follow-on work is hereby presented. Foam core steel sandwich panels, based on Fraunhofer Institute technology, were successfully demonstrated in subscale during Phase I. The process path of HIP plus foaming and HIP plus deformation (rolling) and foaming produced panels superior to a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N98-141
Budget: 10/15/98 - 08/15/99

The objective of this proposed effort is to develop cost-effective fabrication technology for ultra-light steel structures using metal foam technology. Ultra-light metals, materials with densities less than 50 % that of bulk alloys offer significant structural advantages in terms of compressive strength- and stiffness-to-weight ratios for both ...
