Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-245
Budget: 04/15/06 - 05/15/08

Two attachment designs for either carbide-based structural ceramic matrix composite TPS panels or oxide-based TPS based upon CMC-wrapped low density tiles have been identified as candidates for further development. Both designs require Nextel 720 fabric or braid faced flexible gap filler seals. The limited high temperature capability of Nextel ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-245
Budget: 05/02/05 - 05/02/06

In the proposed program, MSNW, Inc. will address critical materials problems associated with the hot gas seals required with two novel designs for the mechanical attachment of reusable space access vehicle thermal protection systems (TPS). The Boeing Company (Boeing Phantom Works), in conjunction with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), h...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-116
Budget: 07/06/04 - 07/06/06

The Phase I project developed an extensive database on electrical properties of candidate repair materials covering a wide range of thermal expansion coefficients from those of ceramic composites to those of superalloys. The Phase II project will develop, optimize and demonstrate unique, robust RAM repair materials that are chemically, mechanica...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-116
Budget: 06/12/03 - 03/12/04

Simple, affordable, durable repair methods that can be performed in the field are required for high temperature radar absorbing material (RAM) coatings. The proposed Phase I research will build upon previous RAM coating research at MSNW, Inc. The project will develop and demonstrate unique, robust RAM repair materials that are chemically, mech...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF00-269
Budget: 06/08/01 - 07/08/03

The proposed Phase II research will build on a recent breakthrough development by MSNW, Inc. of a reinforced adhesive chemically compatible with oxide/oxide CMCs and demonstrating through thickness tensile strengths greater than 1 ksi. The Phase I project demonstrated the potential of this adhesive as the basis for a tailorable repair material....

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF00-269
Budget: 06/07/00 - 04/07/01

The proposed Phase I research will build on previous oxide/oxide ceramic matrix com-posite (CMC) repair studies. Two state-of-the-art CMCs, one from Engineered Ceramics, Inc. and one from Boeing - Huntington Beach, will be used as the base com-posites. The project will develop and demonstrate ceramic adhesive materials which are chemically com...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO99-013
Budget: 07/14/99 - 01/13/99

Graphitization-resistant isotropic pitch-based carbon fibers are proposed as a replacement for rayon-based carbon fibers in carbon-phenolic composites used in heat shields and exhaust systems of missiles. Fibers spun from isotropic (non-mesophase) petroleum and coal tar pitches have mechanical properties very similar to carbon fibers made from u...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N98-069
Budget: 06/03/98 - 12/03/98

The proposed Phase I project will examine low cost, low density composition gradient materials for zero-erosion rocket nozzles for use at the extreme temperatures encountered with aluminized propellants. The materials system consists of a C fiber-reinforced HfC matrix composite substrate overcoated or infiltrated with WC and finally coated with...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: N96-115
Budget: 09/01/97 - 09/01/98

Primary materials for critical propulsion components for Theater Missile Defense concepts are projected to be rhenium-based alloys, which are heavy and expensive. Substantial improvements are anticipated from the use of carbon fiber reinforced-hafnium carbide matrix composites (C-HfC), with carbon fiber providing high temperature strength and H...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO94-055
Budget: 08/01/97 - 09/01/98

The proposed Phase I research will be a systematic study of the mechanisms of oxidation protection of diboride-based composite materials to indicate the most promising directions to achieve significant improvements in oxidation resistance. A quantitative model of oxidation of diboride-based composites will be constructed and correlated with ava...
