Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N131-056
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

Advanced missile radomes require robust high temperature materials for high speed flight. Current advanced radome materials are limited by thermal, electrical, and impact performance. ATFI has developed an oxide ceramic matrix composite (CMC) which has demonstrated required electrical, thermal and structural performance. This proposal will focus...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N131-056
Budget: 06/28/13 - 12/28/13

Advanced missile radomes require robust high temperature materials for high speed flight. Current advanced radome materials are limited by thermal, electrical, and impact performance. ATFI has developed an oxide ceramic matrix composite (CMC) which has demonstrated required electrical, thermal and structural performance. This proposal will focus...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA09-007
Budget: 05/03/10 - 11/02/10

New materials and processes are needed to achieve performance requirements of future ballistic missile defense systems (BMDS). Ever increasing demands on achievable speed and performance require thermally stable, lightweight and mechanically robust thermal protection systems to protect underlying structures from aerothermal heating, radiative he...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 10 A-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Heat exchangers are widely used in power generation, chemical production, petrochemical refining, air conditioning, automotive, aerospace, and many emerging industries including hybrid vehicles, fuel cell systems, thermal solar, and biomass processing plants. Fouling of heat exchangers is a serious and longstanding problem causing significant en...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 10 A-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Heat exchangers are widely used in refrigeration, air conditioning, automotive, aerospace, and other advanced energy systems (such as fuel systems). Fouling of heat exchangers is a serious and longstanding problem that can result in decreased heat transfer efficiency, higher resistance to fluid flow, increased energy consumption, decreased heat...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF073-095
Budget: 07/24/09 - 10/18/10

Pursuits of highly efficient and reliable solar cells place high demands on the materials and processes used in their fabrication. For extraterrestrial cells, specific efficiency is of utmost importance, and thus the ability to reduce module weight without impacting efficiency is highly desirable. Flexible solar cells are a new direction in sola...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-250
Budget: 07/08/09 - 10/08/11

This Phase II.5 effort will further develop and mature the sealing technology relevant to JSF exhaust ceramic matrix composite (CMC) nozzle components. Significant concerns related to the poor durability of the CMC in the engine environment remain and this sealing technology, under Phase II, has demonstrated excellent capability to protect SiC-b...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N091-011
Budget: 05/05/09 - 11/05/09

Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) are emerging as mission-critical materials for a broad range of defense applications and among them, their utility for next-generation aero-turbine components are currently being pursued. SiC-based CMCs are leading candidates for this application due to their high strength, low density, and superior toughness at ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N091-020
Budget: 04/29/09 - 10/29/09

High cost and poor environmental performance of CMCs are limiting their deployment in many defense applications. In particular, the JSF platform requires improved durability for a targeted CMC system which is already qualified and in production. Primary motivation for this Phase I effort is to reduce cost. CMCs, although known for their benefits...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N06-032
Budget: 01/28/08 - 09/01/10

Environmental degradation of aerospace turbine components is a major concern for aircraft and power generation systems, and various surface treatments are utilized to extend the lifetimes of these critical components. This Phase II project is targeted toward extending the durability of thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) on hot section turbine comp...
