10 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N151-025
Budget: 06/04/15 - 12/15/15

The primary function of the ignition pellet in the Safe and Arm (S&A) for Airborne Expendable Infrared Countermeasures (AEIRCMs) is to quickly and reliably ignite the flare grain subsequent to ignition and ejection by the impulse cartridge. Therefore, it is critical that the pellet maintains consistent flame ignition sensitivity, burn rate and o...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N132-100
Budget: 02/03/15 - 02/03/16

The objectives of the Phase II effort are to demonstrate the safety of the developed obscurant device for use in US Navy aircraft as an airborne expendable countermeasure, to optimize performance and to make the obscurant device fully compatible with existing Navy countermeasure dispensing systems.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA12-031
Budget: 09/10/14 - 09/08/16

The Phase I objective of this SBIR was to develop a nanothermite-based ignition composition to improve the no-fire performance of electro-explosive devices (EEDs). The developed nanoparticulate aluminum/cupric oxide (nACO) ignition composition provided a significant improvement in no-fire performance while maintaining all-fire sensitivity withi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N132-100
Budget: 09/26/13 - 03/27/14

Capco proposes using materials developed in previous SBIR obscurant research efforts to prepare UVCM devices for test and evaluation. UV absorption will be optimized through particle geometry and processing parameters.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA12-031
Budget: 03/01/13 - 09/05/13

Through the use of innovative energetic materials, Capco proposes to improve the reliability, shelf life, EMI hardening and performance of EED devices.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-055
Budget: 09/13/12 - 03/13/13

The proposed research plan for the subject SBIR is to investigate in-situ, reactively synthesized obscurants which produce non-toxic, non-incendiary bi-products.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A10-027
Budget: 07/13/12 - 07/12/14

The Objective of Phase I was to develop improved methods for explosively disseminating non-toxic obscurant materials while minimizing particle damage and agglomeration due to the explosive forces. Of particular interest were materials having optical properties in both the infrared (IR) and visible spectra. Capco s approach was to utilize explo...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF10-BT30
Budget: 08/01/11 - 04/30/12
PI: Hao Xin

ABSTRACT: The primary objective of the proposed STTR is to develop a low-cost, high performance material which is capable of directionally-tailored thermal emission and/or transmission control. By combining advanced electromagnetic band structure engineering techniques with low-cost, self-assembled fabrication methods, highly tunable, narrow-ban...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N111-013
Budget: 05/04/11 - 11/07/11

Aluminum-coated, glass strands have been used for RF countermeasures (RFCM) for more than 50 years. This type of RFCM system is becoming outdated and potentially ineffective. New material technologies are needed to ensure aircraft RFCM are effective in the 21st century. Through the use of metamaterial technology, it is theorized that a new gener...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A10-027
Budget: 08/30/10 - 06/30/11

The technical approach for preventing obscurant agglomeration must be multi-pronged; studying not only particle structure, but also explosive impulse loading, grenade burst pressure and composite geometry. The solution to particle agglomeration reduction and improved obscurant performance will most likely be obtained through small advances in m...
