SMI announces that it has received funding to develop enhanced lethality structural coatings
Posted on August 21, 2006
Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) reports that it has received Phase I SBIR funding from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency to develop enhanced lethality coatings. The purpose of such coatings is to increase the realizable energy of a projectile or of the munitions' structural components. SMI will explore MOCVD and sputter processes to produce the films. The technology is based on the well-known release of thermal energy of metal/metal-oxide powders.
SMI will develop the technology in thin film form, facilitating controllable reactivity of the coatings.
In addition, this approach leverages the manufacturability of well-known fabrication technologies such as PVD and MOCVD.
About Structured Materials Industries:
Structured Materials Industries, Incorporated is focused on being the leader in Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) and related technologies. SMI offers for sale: systems, components, materials, and process development services. SMI has an in-house applications laboratory featuring multi-reactor deposition systems and analytic capabilities, has developed a range of strategic partnerships to develop and implement MOCVD technology and looks forward to continuing to grow and expand upon mutually advantageous relationships.
