Cabin Insulation System for the V-22

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Ronald J. Kensey, President, CEO
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
Kennon Aircraft Covers proposes to develop a new cabin insulation system for the V-22 Osprey. The system will be comprised of easy-to-install, adjustable, non-damaging airframe attachment anchors; lightweight, semi-rigid, radiant barrier insulation panels; and adjustable attachment devices to… More

Cabin Insulation System for the V-22

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Mark Weitz, Director of Resources
Award Amount: $545,000.00
Abstract:
Phase II involves the refinement and testing of Phase I attachment anchor prototypes, including vibrational and thermal cycling. Phase II Option involves the investigation, design, prototyping and testing of lightweight insulation composites, including anti-ballistic capabiliities. Phase II and… More

Lightweight Roadside Blast Protection

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: Auburn University
Principal Investigator: Mark A. Weitz, Director of Resources
Award Amount: $70,000.00
RI Contact: Gwynedd A. Thomas
Abstract:
One of the greatest threats to American armed forces serving in Iraq and Afghanistan is the damage caused by mines, roadside bombs, and improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The wide variety of device types, and increasing sophistication of these weapons, presents a growing challenge to protecting… More

Advanced Composite Boats

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Mark Weitz, Director of Resources
Award Amount: $69,300.00
Abstract:
This proposal seeks to develop, refine, and combine, several promising composites construction techniques in order to produce lighter, stronger, more agile boats, ultimately at reduced acquisition costs. These techniques rely on sophisticated uses of fibers and fiber layups, advanced methods of… More

Lightweight, Compact Flotation for Cold-Water Survival

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Mark Weitz, VP, R&D – (307) 674-6498
Award Amount: $149,995.00
Abstract:
Engineered materials can deliver strength to weight ratios that are ten times that of current raft and life preservers, that is, the materials are 1/10 the weight for same or greater strength. These materials hold great promise for creating much lighter and less bulky emergency rafts and life… More

Lightweight, Compact Flotation for Cold-Water Survival

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Mark Weitz, Vice President, R&D – (307) 674-6498
Award Amount: $300,000.00
Abstract:
Lightweight survival rafts and LPUs are proposed for development and proving that will reduce weight the weight of rafts by 1/2 or more, and reduce the bulk of rafts and LPUs by 1/3 or more, while meeting or exceeding all current performance requirements.
