Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM05-009
Budget: 03/06/07 - 02/15/10

The overall objective of this project is to develop a sensor that can measure dust size and concentration exposure for military engine inlets. In order to achieve the simplest possible real-time sensor package, we have focused on a single-ended sensor design that measures back-scattered light to determine dust conditions. These measurements of...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM05-009
Budget: 02/15/06 - 10/15/06

Engine inlets have been designed with Air Particle Separators (APS) for some military aircraft applications that are subject to severe sand environments. However, these inertial particle separators have limited efficiency on the order of 90% for particles greater than 100 microns, decreasing to 75% removal for particles in the size range of 20-...

Phase 1 SBIR

Topic:
Budget: 09/01/05 - 05/31/06

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A new methodology based on gas-phase electrical mobility will be developed for measuring lipoprotein particle size distributions and will be applicable to subclass analysis. This is a technology development project and will lead to a new instrument that will resolve lipoprotein classes and subclasses. The tec...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-257
Budget: 09/14/04 - 09/14/06

The objective of this effort is to develop a non-intrusive optical soot/particle analyzer (known as inTP) that can be used in a gas turbine engine exhaust. The instrument will incorporate two optical methods to measure equivalent optical smoke number, mass concentration, mean particle size for soot particles in the size range of 30 - 500 nm, an...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N02-163
Budget: 11/12/03 - 05/12/05

The primary method of particle mass measurement for industrial processes uses sampling via extraction and filtration, and this method will probably remain as the standard. While this approach is reliable if carefully performed, it generally requires manual operation and long sample times for a single data point. Long sample times are specifica...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-257
Budget: 07/31/03 - 05/01/04

Current gas turbine smoke meter measurements are based on an empirical reflectance measurement, which gives a relative emissions indicator. The proposed optical technique is based on an integrated combination of single particle counting, and ensemble scattering. This method provides a direct and real-time measure of the absolute particle conce...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

70862 The monitoring of high-temperature, high-pressure filters, used in gasification to remove particulates prior to delivering the gas stream to the turbine, is considered to be a critical element for the successful development of advanced gasification systems. This project will develop a robust, continuous, real-time, and low-cost optical...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N02-163
Budget: 10/16/02 - 04/16/03

The primary method of particle mass measurement for industrial processes uses sampling via extraction and filtration. Long sample times are specifically a problem for measurements of industrial gas turbine engines, and as stated in the solicitation, are virtually impractical for short term operation of military gas turbine engines. The Navy wo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

70862 For power generation applications in general, and for new generation Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) systems in particular, there is a need for a continuous particle sensor to measure low concentration (<1 mg/cm3) particles in the range 0.5-50 microns. The measurement must be made at high temperature and pressure downstr...
