Award List:

Multi-Material Structures

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: William Gregory, Principal Engineer
Award Amount: $69,446.00
Abstract:
Composite materials are prime candidates for use in the design of US Navy non-pressure and control surfaces for submarines and topside and mast structure for surface ships. These materials offer the advantage of increased specific modulus and strength as compared to the traditional metallic options.… More

Vibration and Shock Test Machines for Large Ship Systems Components

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Steve McCampbell, Chief Engineer
Award Amount: $69,989.00
Abstract:
This work applies to US Navy requirements for shock and vibration testing of shipboard machinery, equipment, and systems. The work described in this proposal will produce the design for a combined shock and vibration testing machine capable of payloads up to 100,000 pounds. A combined shock and… More

Structural Health Monitoring of Submersible Navy Composites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: William Gregory, Principal Engineer – (434) 607-5422
Award Amount: $79,980.00
Abstract:
The use of composite structural elements continues to expand across Naval Surface Ship and Submarine shipbuilding programs as advancements in design/analysis and research provide viable alternatives to current baseline material systems. To support life-cycle implications of using composites in a US… More

Analytical Processes for Predicting Nanosecond Response of Highly Rate-Sensitive Materials

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Christopher Key, Principal Engineer – (307) 760-8799
Award Amount: $149,613.00
Abstract:
Ballistic and blast protection of both the crew and vital equipment onboard U.S. Navy surface ships and carriers is a critical component in the design of topside structures on these vessels. Materials such as glass, Plexiglas and polyurea are being considered and implemented for protection in these… More

Innovative Approach to Low Cost Shock Testing Fixture for Medium Weight, Shock Isolated Equipment

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Steve McCampbell, Chief Engineer – (434) 581-3204
Award Amount: $79,913.00
Abstract:
Despite being within the payload capacity of the Medium Weight Shock Machine (MWSM), shock qualification testing of medium weight (500 4500 lbs) Class II equipment must currently be performed through underwater explosion (UNDEX) testing using a Floating Shock Platform (FSP), typically in… More

Structural Health Monitoring of Submersible Navy Composites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: William Gregory, Principal Engineer – (434) 607-5422
Award Amount: $749,879.00
Abstract:
The use of composite materials in Naval structures continues to expand as the materials systems along with their engineering design and analysis capabilities advance. To that end, it is becoming paramount that real-time assessments be made of these materials while they are in-service to ensure… More
