Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-161
Budget: 05/13/10 - 05/13/12

In Phase I, CMI successfully demonstrated the ability of a 12 psf MicroTrussTM armor solution to absorb at least 31% of a blast equivalent to a STANAG 4569 Level 2 Blast. In Phase II, CMI will design, develop, and deliver to TARDEC a lightweight blast-attenuation field prototype armor kit. Through design, modeling, testing, and redesign, CMI wil...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: H-SB08.2-001-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N092-142
Budget: 12/21/09 - 06/28/10

The Navy is tasked with more operations than it can perform while still building the next generation of ships. Therefore, every expense counts. To reduce costs in future ships, Cellular Materials International, Inc. and SPARK Engineering propose an innovative series of aluminum-based joining systems that will significantly reduce the labor invol...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Princeton University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF08-BT25
Budget: 06/18/09 - 03/18/10

This proposal seeks to develop a novel method for the extraction of significant electrical power from air breathing hypersonic vehicles by using the existing large temperature differential between the surface of the material inside the SCRAM engine and the temperature of the fuel which is also being used to cool that surface. Thermionic conversi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-1
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Flow control is critical to the effective operation of space vehicles where high velocities must be achieved with minimum power consumption. Recent studies at Princeton have demonstrated the utility of dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) plasma actuators for aerodynamic control. Nanosecond pulse sustained DC driven DBDs are predicted to have mu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-161
Budget: 12/16/08 - 02/16/10

CMI proposes a MicroTrussTM armor solution which is capable of absorbing at least 30% of a blast equivalent to a STANAG 4569 Level 2 Blast (6 kg of explosives detonated under the center of the vehicle at a standoff of 16 , or roughly equal to the clearance height of a Humvee less the depth of the proposed armor solution). By absorbing this blas...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

CMI proposes to design, model, and manufacture blast and impactresistant panels for an efficient solution for protecting bridge supports against Light to Medium range IED threats and impact from vehicles, ships, and barges. The proposed solution is an energyabsorbing MicroTrussTM panel that will be retrofitted to bridge supports or pilings with ...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Princeton University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-T016
Budget: 06/26/07 - 06/30/09

The objective of this STTR Phase II proposal is to build a versatile, near-surface light weight multifunctional metallic structure that can be used for magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) control and power generation. In order to achieve these goals, a controlled plasma must be generated in air with high efficiency, the air must pass through a strong magn...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California, Irvine

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

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will develop a new class of lightweight, multi-functional structural panels with improved performance (strength, stiffness, high impact energy dissipation, thermal management) at minimum weight. The proposed work considers a novel approach to the design and manufacture of truss core ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB032-031
Budget: 09/20/05 - 09/15/07

Several design platforms are being considered for hypersonic vehicles for various DOD applications. The most probable candidate for air-breathing hypersonic propulsion is the supersonic combustion ramjet, or scramjet. At the inlet to a ramjet or scramjet engine, shocks may impinge on the surface of the vehicle, resulting in boundary layer separa...
