Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-221
Budget: 02/15/03 - 02/15/05

Hybrid electric vehicles, in contrast to electric vehicles, require a storage battery that is capable of fast charge/discharge rates in addition to a high storage capacity. AVEKA, Inc. has formulated an amorphous form of vanadium pentoxide that surpasses the performance of its crystalline form at the high charge/discharge rates. The capacity a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-191
Budget: 08/05/02 - 05/05/03

AVEKA, Inc. proposes the use of nanophase aluminum/hydrocarbon slurries produced by its proprietary process with a novel gelling agent to form an inexpensive gelled propellant. AVEKA's Gas Evaporative Reactor (GER) process produces nanophase aluminum slurries in hydrocarbon fluids. These slurries can be gelled easily using a unique, low molecu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-221
Budget: 02/01/02 - 01/18/03

New materials and processing techniques are needed to provide a high power storage device for usage in a hybrid electric vehicle (HEV). AVEKA has developed a unique nanophase V205 material that is capable of storing and delivering large amounts of energy in a short period of time. AVEKA will utilize its proprietary coating technology to form a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N01-071
Budget: 05/10/01 - 11/06/01

AVEKA proposes the use of one of its proprietary leaching processes to dehydrate water-wet pelletized nitrocellulose (PNC). This is a process which will be safe, economical and will allow continuous processing during the dehydration step in the pelletization process. It is also a process that can utilize standard industrial leaching/extraction...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF98-221
Budget: 04/01/99 - 04/02/01

Nanophase particles are becoming increasingly utilized in several fields, including the properties arising from their small size and high surface areas. However, due to their high reactivity, oxides form on the surfaces of these particles and reduce their performance and value. This is especially true of aluminum nanoparticles used as energetic ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 1999
Budget: 01/01/99 - 12/31/99

Not Available Paper recycling continues to increase in the United States, with public support and legislative mandates helping boost recycling of all paper grades. Office waste paper is a significant source of high grade paper fiber for recycling, but is currently underutilized, due to the challenges of fully removing xerographic and laser print...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF98-221
Budget: 06/04/98 - 03/04/99

Nanophase metal particles are becoming increasingly important in areas such as powder metallurgy, catalysis and energetic materials. One of the more important nanophase metals is aluminum . Although several promising routes for the production of this material exist, not one of these synthesis techniques have successfully addressed the issue of...
