Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF073-037
Budget: 11/04/08 - 02/04/11

Recent advances in conductive composites and coatings in the form of electromagnetic shielding materials by Metal Matrix Composites Company now make it possible to scale up the technology insertion opportunities to the stage of advanced commercialization and manufacturing. The materials described herein provide the highest level of broadband shi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF073-037
Budget: 01/04/08 - 01/04/09

A class of conformal coatings, composites and elastomers capable of shielding high power microwaves (HPM) is proposed. Based on nickel nanostrand technology, these coatings, composites and elastomers will extend both the frequency breadth and decibel depth of protection against HPM and other electromagnetic interference phenomena.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-106
Budget: 04/15/07 - 04/30/10

Nickel nanostrands have demonstrated their laboratory scale worth in creating highly conductive and electromagnetically shielding composites, polymers adhesives, coatings and paints. The objectives of this SBIR will be to concentrate on the effort to deliver a commercially viable electromagnetically shielding paint. Pursuant to that objective wi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-106
Budget: 04/17/06 - 08/17/07

Nickel nanostrands have previously demonstrated their ability to create unsurpassed levels of broadband electromagnetic shielding in a wide range of polymers, being superior in both the level of protection (in dB) and in frequency response range when compared to many other competing technologies, including wire meshes and metal or metal coated p...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-116
Budget: 05/29/03 - 09/29/07

A new form of small diameter, high aspect ratio nickel, known as nickel nanostrands, has been created and evaluated. The unique material exhibits a complex geometry, small diameter, high aspect ratio and high conductivity. It appears to provide an excellent nanostructured three dimensional conductive lattice in a polymer, or acts as an interconn...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-116
Budget: 05/02/02 - 02/02/03

Lightning strike protection for composite aircraft components is traditionally provided by application of a secondary surface process, usually consisting of a metal mesh in additional resin. These systems are difficult to apply and repair, are parasitic in weight, and are expensive. An alternate method to provide protection would be to make the...
