Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Argonne National Laboratory

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT19
Budget: 07/01/10 - 04/01/11

The demand for higher performance and rapid transition of new technologies into extreme performance has lead to the need for engineered materials and surface modification technologies. The present proposal is focused on finding a surface engineered solution that can withstand exceptionally harsh environments such as those found in supersonic gro...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-117
Budget: 03/19/09 - 12/19/09

The objective of this Phase I SBIR program is to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a reliable and durable plasma spray high temperature solid lubricant coating that can be applied to the journal and/or top foil surfaces of the air foil bearing system. The coating will have an extremely low friction coefficient and low wear. The coating...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-072
Budget: 01/20/09 - 10/20/09

Bearing housings and flanges in propulsion systems experience excessive fretting wear on the titanium alloy surface due to adverse vibrations, loads, and temperature cycling. Traditionally, fretting wear problems are solved using steel inserts or bushings that are press-fit into the titanium alloy casing and interface with the bearings. In ord...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: SUNY Stony Brook

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) power plants are gaining popularity due to their higher cycle efficiency, which is achieved by pushing the inlet operating temperature beyond 1400oC. However, in order to meet long-term goals, with target efficiencies greater than 50% and with lower emissions, the inlet temperature may need to be ra...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Boston University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project between Plasma Technology Incorporated and Boston University will develop a functionally graded thermal barrier/environmental barrier coating (TBC/EBC) system for aerospace and power generatio...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-308
Budget: 09/18/08 - 09/18/10

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II objective is to explore a range of overlay deposition processes, deposited material and property relationships, and economical solutions for parent metal restoration techniques. Overlay additive deposition processes are the primary means for parent metal restoration. Thermal spray has the ability ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-097
Budget: 05/14/07 - 02/14/08

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I objective is to develop a cavitation resistant and impact resistant coating system on Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) substrates. The use of FRP materials have many benefits, including stringent fabrication tolerance at reduced procurement cost, hydrodynamic efficiency leading to reduced life-cycle ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-168
Budget: 04/19/07 - 08/19/09

Plasma sprayed Thermal Barrier Coatings (TBC) have been studied extensively through the years to understand variations in coating properties as well as to achieve control on microstructure of the coatings. The principle goal of this SBIR partnership between a small business such as Plasma Technology Inc. and The Center for Thermal Spray Research...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I effort will develop an innovative single and multilayer nano-composite coating system for High Temperature Polymer Matrix Composites (HTPMC) using vacuum based thin film Cathodic Arc Physical Vapor Deposition (CAPVD) and Plasma Enhanced Magnetron Sputtering (PEMS) processes. The expected ben...
