Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N101-060
Budget: 07/12/10 - 01/12/11

During Phase I, the feasibility of developing and implementing an innovative automated fire detection and targeting system that can suppress fires anywhere on a typical deckhouse will be demonstrated. During the program, performance requirements and metrics will be defined and used as the basis of the assessment. At least one conceptual design w...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N05-050
Budget: 12/14/06 - 06/22/10

Future Naval vessels, having reduced manning, will rely on installed systems and situational awareness for damage control. Casualty assessment, including fire and smoke spread, will be initially implemented using a physics-based heuristic approach with FSSIM as its backbone. The next generation of this predictive software will be developed in th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-121
Budget: 04/24/06 - 07/24/07

Fire modeling software has been used to evaluate the impacts of fire on people, and property. Numerous lives and untold millions have been saved as a result of these evaluations. More and more of these analysis are being conducted as people and organizations recognize the benefits of a performance based design. Unfortunately, no real interfaces ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N03-089
Budget: 04/17/06 - 04/16/08

As a follow-on to the DDG 51 Phase I SBIR, PMS 500 and NAVSEA 05P4 are pursuing the goal of replacing all Heptafluoropropane (HFP) gaseous agent systems on future ships with water mist. More specifically, for use in marine gas turbine enclosures and flammable liquid storerooms. The objectives of the Phase II effort will be to address the techni...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N05-050
Budget: 05/05/05 - 11/04/05

Autonomic systems are required to achieve reduced manning for shipboard damage control. An integral element of this system is the capability to simulate physical phenomena that results in cascading failures, including fire and smoke spread. The work proposed here will use the physics-based fire and smoke model, Fire and Smoke Simulator (FSSIM)...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N03-089
Budget: 07/01/03 - 12/28/03

Water mist fire protection systems offer an attractive alternative to halon-proteted shipboard hazards. Well documented performance characteristics, combined with evolving commercial hardware technology, offers the opportunity to develop a retrofit suppression package for Navy ships. This Phase I proposal describes the feasibility study needed...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Commerce
Topic: 1998
Budget: 01/01/98 - 12/31/98
PI: Unavailable

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Commerce
Topic: 1997
Budget: 01/01/97 - 12/31/97

Fire fighter burn injuries continue to be a frequent problem despite significant advances in protective clothing. A reason for this is the buildup of moisture in fire fighting garments as a result of sweating or fire fighting activities. This buildup of moisture increases the heat transfer through the garment and can result in scald burn injurie...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Southwest Research Institute

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF96T002
Budget: 07/22/96 - 07/22/97

AFFF is a vital component of the fire protection of aviation and other assets, but concerns are raised about potential environmental harm when the constituents spread to the environment. It is suspected that some of the components used to create the unique, highly effective characteristics of AFFF do not readily breakdown in the environment. T...
