14 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N03-080
Budget: 11/25/03 - 05/23/04

Anticipated requirements for the advanced long-range anti-air missile systems require ceramic radome materials with superior mechanical and thermal properties, in addition to low dielectric constants and loss tangents in the appropriate electromagnetic spectrum . The severe environmental conditions generated during hypersonic flights (temperatu...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-045
Budget: 07/18/03 - 07/18/05

Composition hardening and microstructure toughening are proposed to develop a low cost silicon carbide-based multiphase composite for advanced armor applications. In the Phase I program, different reinforcement particles and volume fraction have been examined. The hardened and toughened silicon carbide has been demonstrated through this compos...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A00-115
Budget: 03/04/02 - 03/04/04

A program is proposed to develop a low-cost, high-volume process to synthesize and fabricate boron-rich boron carbide. Rapid Carbothermal Reduction (RCR) is used to synthesize the sub-micron boron carbide powder. This continuous synthesis process enable (1) the control of volatilization of boron oxide, (2) the tailoring of stoichiometry, and ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-045
Budget: 02/26/02 - 01/24/03

A program is proposed to develop a low-cost silicon carbide-based multiphase composite with high hardness and high fracture toughness using a powder-based processing. High hardness is achieved through composition design and high fracture toughness is accomplished by microstructure tailoring. The reinforcing phases will be identified and select...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A00-115
Budget: 02/05/01 - 12/17/01

A low cost, high purity powder synthesis process is proposed for the boron-rich boron carbide for light weight armor applications. Rapid Carbothermal Reduction (RCR) will be used to synthesize the submicron boron carbide powder without the needs of acid washing or powder comminution processes. Boron carbide powder with different boron to carbo...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N99-039
Budget: 12/20/00 - 12/20/02

A program is proposed to optimize the armor system for providing a lightweight, environmentally robust, readily producible, low cost, modular solution to the armor requirements of the AAAV (Advanced Amphibious Assault Vehicle). The Protection Areal Density (PAD) methodology will be applied to develop the armor system with the minimal weight. T...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A98-072
Budget: 09/25/00 - 09/25/02

A program is proposed to develop a low-cost elastomer-encapsulated ceramic armor component with multi-hit defeat capability and with excellent durability in all battlefield environments. The armor package can defeat multiple .50 cal APM2 projectiles at inter-hit distances as small as 3 inches which represents a greater than 90% probability of pr...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N99-004
Budget: 09/15/00 - 03/15/02

During the Phase II of this program, the properties of developed AlN-based high thermal conductivity, lossy composites will be optimized, and a production of the material(s) will be scaled up. The goal will be to match and surpass the current BeO-SiC materials in thermal conductivity and dielectric loss. Materials properties (dielectric, mechan...
