Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N121-094
Budget: 04/08/14 - 10/08/15

In a successful Phase I SBIR research effort the team of Solidica, Inc., Navmar Applied Sciences Corporation-Advanced Acoustics Sector (NASC-AAS), and Fabrisonic LLC identified opportunities for both 41% cost savings and +3 to +4 dB performance improvement in a slotted cylinder projector (SCP) suitable for use in a AN/SSQ-125 sonobuoy, as well a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-H5.02
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

The goal of this program is to demonstrate the use of UAM to additively build reinforcement structures to reinforce cut outs in larger aluminum structural components. The team will work with NASA to scope a 'generic' opening in an aerospace aluminum structure. UAM will be used to perform two reinforcing activities. Firstly, UAM will be used to t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N121-094
Budget: 05/07/12 - 03/08/13

The purpose of this team effort by Solidica and Navmar Applied Sciences Corporation-Advanced Acoustics Section effort is to demonstrate the feasibility of using Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing (UAM) to build major components of an underwater sonar transducer. UAM has the ability to create new features that both aid in assembly and improve perf...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB093-001
Budget: 07/30/10 - 08/22/10

Solidica proposes a new, more efficient joint design to join composite materials to steel structures. Using Ultrasonic Consolidation (UC), a low cost next generation additive manufacturing process, Solidica can build steel laminates that are later joined to the composite material through both a mechanical interlock and an adhesive bond. Using ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Michigan Technological University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will examine the use of a novel, ultrasonic materials consolidation technology as a means to embed Bragg intracore grating, fiber optic strain sensors as part of a real-time asset monitoring information system. The embedding process for strain sensors using ultrasonic consolidation ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

The performance requirements for next-generation linear colliders and linear-accelerator-based light sources, such as X-ray free electron lasers, place extreme demands upon the electron beam source. Higher field gradients in the electron gun are required to maintain beam quality and beam energy, in order to increase the peak power (and heat) lo...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Clemson University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase II project will complete the development of a support material for Ultrasonic Consolidation (UC) direct metal rapid prototyping and demonstrate the ability to build structures with high aspect ratios or overhanging features. This ability to apply UC to more complex shapes will enable...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

79778S One of the obstacles to the fabrication of high-brightness electron beam sources, used in next-generation linear colliders and linac-based light sources, is the unmet need for a cooling system. This project will develop a conformal cooling system that will greatly increase the thermal efficiencies required for new sources. The multilay...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-902
Budget: 08/30/04 - 12/31/04

This Phase I SBIR will show that 1) a novel metal lamination process, Ultrasonic Consolidation (UC), provides anisotropic, inhomogeneous armor with capability to disrupt the axial symmetry of armor piercing munitions, 2) that UC can support in-field retrofit of armor to existing vehicles, and 3) that UC provides automated counterfire feasibilit...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Clemson University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will result in the characterization of the mechanical and physical properties requirements for a support material for an ultrasonic consolidation rapid prototyping process. Ultrasonic excitation is known to affect the deformation characteristics of metals, either through superpositio...
