Tetramer Receives Phase II.5 DOD Award

Tetramer has been awarded a SBIR Phase II.5 contract (N6833519C0153) for the continued development of a UV curable optical adhesive, TIMA™, for use in mechanical splices for the repair of avionic fiber optic systems in the F/A-18 Hornet and other military aircraft. Through the Phase I and II programs, Tetramer carefully screened materials to build a database of physical proerties which was then used to develop a formulation which demonstrated superior shelf ...

Tetramer Awarded Phase I DOD Contract

Tetramer Technologies was awarded a Phase I contract from the US Navy (N6833518C0353) to develop a more robust elastomer material for cushioned clamps. These clamps serve an important role in securing and protecting hydraulic, fuel, and electrical lines in Navy aircraft. If a support member loses its ability to dampen vibration and provide a protective cushion, the vital runs become susceptible to damage by forces including abrasion, vibration, and shock. Improved elastomer cushion materials are needed to stay reliably viable ...

DOD Awards Tetramer Contract to Develop Low-Loss Optical Polymer Materials

Tetramer Technologies has won a Phase I SBIR DOD contract (N00014-14-P-1052) to develop new, commercially attractive, thermoplastic optical polymers that have ultra-low scattering losses for use in diffraction-limited optical lenses. The value proposition to the customer using Tetramer® optical polymers will be decreased scattering of light transmitted through the polymer lens, resulting in smaller Airy disks and improved Modulation Transfer Function in optical devices. Currently, the scattering loss found in commercial sources of optical polymers is unacceptably high to the ...

Tetramer Awarded DOD Phase I Contract to Develop and Process Dielectric Films

Tetramer has been awarded a DOD Phase I SBIR Contract (N00014-12-M-0227) to develop and process dielectric films for application in large wound capacitors.  There is currently a great need for commercially available dielectric films which can outperform biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) at higher temperatures. While this need for such materials to improve the performance of high energy capacitors is well documented for pulse power applications such as the rail gun and reactive armor in military applications, civilian applications in electric ...

Tetramer Wins DOD Contract to Develop Advanced UV Curable Materials

Tetramer Technologies has been awarded a DOD Phase I Contract (N68335-12-C-0052) to develop advanced UV curable index matching materials.  In this Phase I SBIR program, Tetramer will develop new, commercially attractive, UV curable refractive index matching materials which have a significant shelf life in the uncured state. The value proposition to the customer working with fiber optic cabling will be increased reliability in refractive index matching adhesives(IMA) for fiber optic coupling and increased performance through a decreased attenuation at a ...
