Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: BMDO01-002
Budget: 07/15/11 - 08/30/12

Dynamic Structures and Materials, LLC (DSM) proposes the design and development of a high power rotary piezoelectric driven actuator for optical assemblies for kinetic energy weapons. The proposed design uses an ultrasonic piezo ring motor to provide torque and speed. The simplicity of the design allows for very high actuation frequencies with...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Health Program
Topic: OSD09-H09
Budget: 06/15/11 - 06/14/13

Applications for ultrasound are expanding beyond medical imaging to include new functionality, with the potential to halt internal bleeding or provide an alternative to manual suturing. These types of functions are suited to a surgical robot, offering the potential for tele-operation or even autonomous functionality. However, the requirements ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N101-096
Budget: 04/12/11 - 10/11/12

DSM demonstrated an inexpensive, non-inductive actuation mechanism that can be used in a canard actuation system (CAS) without adding noise or bias to the measurements of onboard magnetometers during guidance and fuzing operations of miniaturized precision munitions. The Piezo actuator based Phase I prototype met program specifications and is re...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N101-096
Budget: 05/10/10 - 07/09/11

Dynamic Structures and Materials, LLC (DSM) proposes a novel piezoelectric ceramic motor actuator for actuating flight control surfaces such as canards in mortars and gun launched munitions. The proposed miniature piezoelectric ceramic actuation technology is based on a inertial vibration motor concept that has been shown to be able to produce...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA09-001
Budget: 04/30/10 - 10/30/10

Lightweight Divert and Attitude Control Systems (DACS) can improve the mass fraction and specific impulse capabilities of propulsion systems for future MDA platforms. Proposed is the development of a novel DACS valve and actuator to provide improved capabilities for a wide range of future systems. DSM has teamed with a leading missile defense ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD09-H09
Budget: 04/01/10 - 11/14/10

Applications for ultrasound are expanding beyond medical imaging to include new functionality, with the potential to halt internal bleeding or provide an alternative to manual suturing. These types of functions are in some ways suited to a surgical robot, offering the potential for teleoperation or perhaps even autonomous functionality. Howeve...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA06-021
Budget: 06/03/08 - 05/31/10

Dynamic Structures and Materials, LLC (DSM) proposes the development of a compact, proportional piezoelectric motor actuation technology with miniature electronics, optimized actuator hardware and integrated position feedback capability. The new actuation system will be optimized and characterized in an integration test bed representative of sy...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N06-103
Budget: 03/12/08 - 03/12/10

Military personnel on the Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV) may be subjected to significant levels of shock and vibration loading in the course of a military maneuver. The shock and vibration loading can interfere with crew duties and cause fatigue and distraction. Dynamic Structures and Materials (DSM) completed a Phase I development of a ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF073-131
Budget: 02/25/08 - 11/25/08

Space Mechanism testing often requires precision motion control in a cryogenic and high vacuum environment. Precision position devices that can provide motion over large distances and with relatively high forces are required. DSM proposes a revolutionary piezoelectric motorized stage that is cryogenic and vacuum compatible to provide positionin...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD05-H13
Budget: 01/31/08 - 01/31/10

Military personnel are often subjected to significant vertical acceleration while carrying out their duties. Such acceleration can interfere with the individual s ability to view platform-fixed displays by inducing spatial disorientation and/or motion sickness. The resulting decrease in personnel performance arises from head movements and post...
