modified intumescent material is needed that is lightweight, quick-expanding, has a char strength sufficient to withstand airflow, and does not initiate expansion/activation until reaching 700ºF or higher. This new enhanced high temperature expanding intumescence will significantly advance the state-of-the-art in intumescent materials capability to suppress fires rapidly and effectively in manned and unmanned aerospace systems.

PHASE I: Develop thin, lightweight intumescent coating,that begins expanding above 700ºF, fully expands & extinguishes within 10 seconds of fire initiation,withstands -50ºF to 160ºF without performance degradation,and char withstands 5 lbms/sec airflow. Demonstrate coating’s performance in a lab environment. PHASE II: Demonstrate the new intumescent material’s performance capability which meets/exceeds the criteria identified in Phase I in a full-scale engine nacelle test facility. The intumescent material must comply with all performance criteria identified in Phase I, including engine nacelle fire extinguishment within 10 seconds of fire initiation. DUAL USE COMMERCIALIZATION: The new intumescent coating developed for the Department of Defense for manned and unmanned aerospace systems is equally applicable for use throughout industry as a fire retardant/suppressant on commercial aircraft, in buildings, and in construction of new facilities.

AF06-293 TITLE: Electronic Virtual Thermal Mapping Device TECHNOLOGY AREAS: Materials/Processes The technology within this topic is restricted under the International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR), which controls the export and import of defense-related material and services. Offerors must disclose any proposed use of foreign nationals, their country of origin, and what tasks each would accomplish in the statement of work in accordance with section 3.5.b.(7) of the solicitation. STATEMENT OF INTENT: This topic holds the greatest potential for meeting the technical needs of our warfighters supported by PEOs and Centers. OBJECTIVE: Develop a low-cost, high-speed, virtual electronic Thermal Mapping Device (TMD) capable of identifying fire ignition source in large and small areas. DESCRIPTION: Throughout the Department of Defense, identification of a fire source is paramount to timely fire suppression and ensuring the survivability of aerospace platforms. A TMD is needed that can instantly identify the location of fire sources and assist in precise direction of onboard fire suppressant to the correct area. This device will be used to significantly enhance the survivability of current and future aerospace systems. This technology will
