Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N92-135
Budget: 12/21/95 - 12/21/97

The Phase I program showed feasibilty of using affordable carbon composites to extend the capabilities of conductively cooled Standard Electronic Modules. Innovations were (1) reduced thermal resistance at the thermal plane/card holder interface, 92) increased thermal conductivity of the thermal plane, and (3) controlled the coefficient of ther...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: SDIO92-007
Budget: 07/26/94 - 07/26/96

The program objective is to fabricate and test carbon-carbon panels for spacecraft radiators with a thermal conductivity above 700 W/mK. Innovations required to meet this objective are: (1) 1100 W/mK K1100X graphite fiber, (2) unique weaving techniques that will provide a nearly unidirectinal preform with adequate mechnical strength for handlin...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N92-135
Budget: 01/01/93 - 07/01/93

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N90-015
Budget: 12/31/92 - 12/31/94

The Phase I research showed that the thermal expansion of the chip carrier, printed wiring board, and thermal plane could be tailored of that of a silicon chip. The high thermal conductivity components selected will provide significantly enhanced heat removal from the device. It is estimated that for high power devices, this improved thermal m...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N92-096
Budget: 11/30/92 - 05/30/93

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency

Budget: 05/19/92 - 11/19/92

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N89-095
Budget: 03/13/90 - 12/31/90

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N90-015
Budget: 01/01/90 - 12/31/90

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N87-124
Budget: 06/02/89 - 06/02/93

THE PHASE I RESULTS SHOWED THE FEASIBILITY OF FABRICATING METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES (MMC) HEAT SINKS THAT WOULD PROVIDE WEIGHT-SAVING OF A FACTOR OF 3 OVER CURRENTLY USED HEAT SINK MATERIALS IN ELECTRONIC DEVICES. PHASE II WILL SELECT AN ELECTRONIC DEVICE UNDER DEVELOPMENT FOR A FUTURE NAVY SYSTEM AND DEVELOP MMC HEAT SINKS THAT WILL MEET ITS SPE...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N87-011
Budget: 01/01/88 - 12/31/88

THE PHASE I RESULTS SHOWED THAT COMPOSITE MATERIALS INCORPORATING HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY GRAPHITE FIBERS COULD BE TAILORED TO MEET THERMAL EXPANSION AND THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY REQUIREMENTS FOR HEAT SINKS IN NAVY ELECTRONIC DEVICES. PHASE II WILL DEVELOP SELECTED COMPOSITES FOR COMPLETE EVALUATION AND PERFORMANCE DEMONSTRATION IN ACTUAL ELECTRO...
