Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A11-077
Budget: 08/31/16 - 08/30/17

Fiber reinforced thermoplastic matrix composites (TPMCs) have gained increased attention for use in high performance composite structures and components for aviation and missile applications due to significant benefits for improved damage tolerance, faster processing and assembly, reduced joint weight, virtually unlimited shelf life with minimal...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-023
Budget: 08/01/16 - 02/01/17

The Naval Expeditionary Program Office is seeking the development of a new submersible hose system for the Amphibious Bulk Liquid Transfer System (ABLTS) that is flexible, collapsible, and will sink in seawater when full of fuel. Current commercial layflat, high pressure hose design and manufacturing methods are not suitable for integrated const...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A15-106
Budget: 07/26/16 - 01/25/17

To meet the objective of developing a design and fabrication strategy for producing low-cost, high-performance thermoplastic structures that contain highly detailed features for missile and aviation applications, Materials Sciences Corporation (MSC) will develop the technical data and analysis tools to implement hybrid material systems. In order...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-072
Budget: 06/27/16 - 12/26/16

The application of fiber reinforced composite materials into Army vehicle and structural platforms has generated a significant amount of research in recent years with the enhanced structural performance of the materials resulting in significant weight savings. One technical barrier inhibiting the insertion of these materials into service is the ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-017
Budget: 05/31/16 - 11/29/16

Composite material systems have been more widely inserted into Todays Fleet in an effort to enhance the capabilities and meet the operational demands of the 21st century warfighter. In doing so, the Navy has come to rely on these enhanced capabilities and is now looking to improve upon legacy repair and maintenance methods in order maximize the ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A15-008
Budget: 09/09/15 - 03/08/16

There is a critical need for replacement of viscose processed rayon-based carbon fibers for use in Solid Rocket Motor (SRM) nozzle designs. Rayon based fibers have unique thermal-structural properties which makes them an excellent ablative material in nozzle liners; but, due to undesirable processing conditions, there is no longer a domestic com...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A15-007
Budget: 08/31/15 - 04/30/16

Guidance and navigation components within missile systems are vulnerable to performance degradation as a result of vibrations generated by neighboring components. Conventional methods to alleviate this degradation include installing passive vibration-damping materials or adding additional material to shift resonance frequencies. Both of these ap...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A13-070
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

Missile modernization and future missile designs are utilizing more sophisticated and higher powered electronics in the pursuit of extended missile range, improved accuracy and precision targeting for striking enemy threats. Tight packaging and sophistication of these electronic systems can generate significant heat loads, which needs to be diss...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N121-058
Budget: 09/16/14 - 09/16/16

In this proposal, Materials Sciences Corporation (MSC) and its manufacturing partner Seemann Composites Inc. (SCI) have defined several synergistic material science innovations that have the potential to lower the cost, or increase the performance at the current cost, of surface combatant sonar domes. Material configurations (lamination sequence...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-142
Budget: 07/07/14 - 07/07/16

The current welded aluminum ramps on the Navy s Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) hovercraft are prone to damage related to extreme vehicle and seaway load requirements in combination with corrosion and erosion due to the harsh salt-laden marine environment in which they operate. Improving durability, corrosion resistance and life cycle cost of t...
