Project Introduction

Next Generation Advanced Binder Chemistries for High Performance, Environmentally DurableThermal Control Material Systems, Phase II
This innovative SBIR Phase II proposal will develop next generation products for Thermal Control Material Systems (TCMS) an adhesives based on the next generation nano-cluster chemistry based new binder systems, through the systematic investigations to tailor required unique performance properties with reliability and durability. The efforts address a critical need of NASA which plans to undertake challenging exploration missions in high radiation orbits for high power thermal management. This Phase II product development and validation is mainly proposed to fulfill the issues related to the material obsolescence and the technology gap, and to present next generation product concepts from the new class of binder material chemistries that are dielectrically engineered with required secondary emission properties. Thus, this timely proposal can fulfill the need of the multifunctional binder based products that have a required thermal shock, thermal cycling performance and potential to improve the affordability. The proposed efforts will generate needed validation data to generate the confidence in the developed products and will carry out needed optimization of the proposed products. It will also provide needed input to Phase III opportunities to the mission officials from JIMO, ISS and to the various officials of DoD and NRO on the issues, where the next generation materials can make a significant difference.
