24 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Gloyer-taylor Laboratories LLC

Institution: Southern Research Institute

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T12.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 06/09/17

GTL?s SNS technology aids in the operation of new or existing structural health monitoring (SHM) systems by integrating data and power pathways into the structure. The use of this technology within a composite structure would allow engineers to place sensors from an SHM system directly where they are needed on a structure with instant power. GTL...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Materials Research & Design

Institution: Southern Research Institute

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT03
Budget: 09/01/15 - 05/31/16

ABSTRACT: This Phase I effort will identify and evaluate candidate materials to replace existing beryllium-copper alloy components for use in aerospace ground test flow facilities. The candidate materials must offer similar or better performance metrics (dimensional stability, lifetime, etc.), be domestically and readily available, offer simila...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Materials Research & Design

Institution: Southern Research Institute

Agency: Navy
Topic: N13A-T008
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

It is critical to the safe use of ceramic matrix composite components that information on the fracture toughness of these materials be available in order to allow an assessment of the likelihood for crack growth. Although Military Standards and American Society for Testing and Materials both serve as resources for room and elevated temperature t...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Weidlinger Assoc., Inc.

Institution: Southern Research Institute

Agency: Navy
Topic: N13A-T008
Budget: 08/15/13 - 03/15/14

Susceptibility to delamination is one of the major weaknesses of ceramic matrix composites (CMCs). Knowledge of the resistance of composite to interlaminar fracture is essential for life cycle prediction analyses of structural components. The current test method for Mode I-interlaminar fracture toughness, the double cantilevered beam (DCB), is n...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Thor Technologies, Inc.

Institution: Southern Research Institute

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD12-T07
Budget: 08/08/13 - 02/11/14

The proposed work will result in a method for production of dense, hard, tough, strong tungten carbide (WC) ceramic material for ultimate use as the penetrating core in armor piercing projectiles. Focus is on the development and feasibility of a titanium silicon carbide (Ti3SiC2) based matrix as a replacement for cobalt based materials currentl...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Exothermics, Inc.

Institution: Southern Research Institute

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA09-T002
Budget: 05/23/12 - 05/22/14

The notional performance parameters and kinematic requirements for the SM3 Blk IIB mission would benefit from the availability of advanced materials manufacturing methods that could enhance the technical properties and lower the cost of TDACS components. This Phase 2 STTR proposal addresses the requirement to significantly improve the affordabil...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Carbon-Carbon Advanced Technologies, Inc.

Institution: Southern Research Institute

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-1-T9.01
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

The NASA Office of the Chief Technologist (OCT) has identified a "carbon-carbon nozzle (domestic source)" as a "Top Technical Challenge" in the 2011-2016 timeframe in the "Launch Propulsion Systems Roadmap" document. This program, by utilizing a demonstrably capable team with a deep history in the manufacture, testing, and analysis of C/C mater...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: SI2 Technologies

Institution: Southern Research Institute

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T021
Budget: 06/28/10 - 04/30/11

SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) proposes an innovative solution to the Navy s need for wideband antennas to support naval ships and Marine Corps vehicle communications, electronic warfare (EW), and radar functions. SI2 will develop efficient, broadband, metamaterial antennas for operation in the VHF-UHF frequency range. These antennas will initial...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Exothermics, Inc.

Institution: Southern Research Institute

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA09-T002
Budget: 05/03/10 - 11/02/10

This proposal addresses the requirement to significantly improve the affordability, maintainability and performance of KKV DACS components. Exothermics and their Phase 1 partner Southern Research Institute will endeavor to increase the performance, lower the cost and enhance the technical property characteristics of SDACS and hypersonic componen...
