Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N151-037
Budget: 09/19/16 - 09/19/18

The TB-16 sonar tow cable serves a towing function and also contains sensor communication lines. The Light Weight Tow Cable (LWTC), which contains high-performance polymer fiber reinforcement, has significant advantages over the alternative heavy weight tow cable (HWTC) that is reinforced with steel fibers. The LWTC provides enhanced capabilitie...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-061
Budget: 09/06/16 - 03/05/17

Modern military field kitchens are required to provide high volume throughput while maintaining the best quality of group feeding rations for the Warfighter. The Army's legacy JP-8 fired appliances fall short, relying on inefficient burner units that subject cooks to excessive heat, exhaust, and noise. The Army needs one appliance designed to ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-012
Budget: 09/01/16 - 03/01/17

Army howitzer gun tubes made from high strength gun steel, which is affordable and strong but susceptible to corrosion. They are also susceptible to stress corrosion cracking because they are autofrettaged. Field usage causes pitting and cracking in bore evacuator holes. The Army needs an affordable method of detecting, typing (Pit Crack Crac...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A15-105
Budget: 07/26/16 - 01/25/17

The superior strength-to-weight ratio of composites has prompted expanded usage in tactical missiles. However, increasing mission demands are driving the need for higher performance from lower cost composite materials. Matrix resins used for production of tactical missile composites evolved from strategic missile applications, where cost and pro...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-038
Budget: 07/18/16 - 01/14/17

The use of additive manufacturing on board Navy ships offers the potential to be able to replace defective parts at a lower cost and timelier manner. There are three main issues in regard to using fusion deposition modeling (FDM) on Navy ships, including, the current inability of any FDM feed stock materials to meet the NAVSEA fire, smoke, and t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-017
Budget: 05/31/16 - 11/30/16

More efficient on-aircraft repair processes are needed for structural organic-matrix composite components. In response to this need, TRI/Austin is developing UV curable matrix resins that provide elevated Tg, and high fiber strength translation. The matrix resin will be formulated to achieve glass transition temperatures of > 330F, to restore st...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H13.01
Budget: 05/05/16 - 05/04/18

NDE data has become ?Big Data?, and is overwhelming the abilities of NDE technicians and commercially available tools to deal with it. In the current state of the art in industrial practice, there is no integration of the NDE data into design data, NDE models, and structural integrity models for a holistic structural capability assessment. Our p...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-056
Budget: 03/08/16 - 03/08/18

High moisture permeation rates through hosewall materials are a primary failure mode in fat line towed arrays. TRI/Austin Inc. demonstrated the feasibility of reducing water permeation in TPU hosewall designs in Phase I by incorporation of a TPU having a hydrophobic polymeric backbone. These results indicate water permeation can be reduced by a ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT01
Budget: 03/01/16 - 11/30/16

ABSTRACT: Texas Research Institute Austin (TRI/Austin) teaming with the University of Florida Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department proposes to demonstrate a proof of concept for a micro air vehicle (MAV) that has a wing capable of autonomously morphing planform shape, camber, and angle-of-attack like a bird wing in response to a varie...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Missouri University of Science & Technology

Agency: Army
Topic: A14A-T003
Budget: 01/28/16 - 01/27/18

In Phase I, TRI/Austin teamed with Missouri S&T to investigate and refine several technologies, i.e. synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging algorithms; advanced Compressive Sensing (CS) techniques; innovative imaging hardware; under-sampling; etc, as they apply to high speed millimeter wave imaging. These investigations were supported by both m...
