Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT07
Budget: 07/07/15 - 03/08/16

ABSTRACT: Three dimensional (3-D) printing is a robust and facile means for rapidly producing complex geometry prototype electrical insulators. ?Unfortunately, these techniques are limited towards producing insulators suitable for low voltage applications (e.g. electric field applications < ?20 KV/mm ) given current 3-D printed material short...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.8
Budget: 06/04/15 - 12/31/15

A burgeoning need exists for less toxic plastic packaging resins in society today. Current concerns about chronic human exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) epoxy resins commonly employed as corrosion resistant liners within canned food container interiors has driven the need to explore alternative, less toxic polymer barrier can liner materials. This ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Threat Reduction Agency
Topic: DTRA102-002
Budget: 06/27/11 - 01/26/12

Novel, visible light activated, photocatalytic self-decontamination agents will be developed during this proposed Phase I SBIR effort. These photocatalysts will be heterogeneously supported upon various high surface area particles and by judicious blending of various particle size distributions & morphologies, a decontaminant will be produced; ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-004
Budget: 07/20/09 - 07/15/11

Several novel non-phosphorus based pyrotechnic formulations will be refined and integrated into both M18 & M83 smoke grenades during this Phase II Program. These compositions will be subjected to extensive testing by both Ventana as well as an independent laboratory and grenades loaded with this formulation will have better obscuring power relat...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST061-010
Budget: 04/23/08 - 07/23/10

This program will entail making further refinements to a rapidly polymerizable resin which was shown during the Phase I Program to induce corrosion and ductility loss within treated steel rifle barrels. Besides optimizing the formulations, efforts will also be directed during this Phase II program towards devising suitable equipment for efficie...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-004
Budget: 06/26/07 - 04/22/08

Current smoke producing munitions posess significant total obscuring power (TOP) but suffer from the drawbacks taht they are both toxic and corrosive towards military personnel and hardware respectively. A burgeoning need therefore exists for alternative obscurants which are benign as well as posess high TOP properties. Polyphenol derivatives ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: OSD04-C13
Budget: 04/16/07 - 04/30/09

Novel non-corrosive aqueous fluids suitable for decontaminating a wide variety of military hardware & sensitive electronic devices will be developed and tested during this proposed Phase II program.

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST061-010
Budget: 07/06/06 - 09/14/07

In an attempt to deal with a growing number of weapon caches, Ventana Research will team-up with the University of Arizona to develop a non-toxic, cost-efficient resins formulation which will immediately incapacitate small arms and light weaponry. In addition this resin will also cause significant corrosion of ordinance steel over a prolonged t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD06-109
Budget: 05/09/06 - 11/05/06

Currently employed decontaminating sorbents (e.g. A200 & XE-55) have the propensity to leave a powdery residue after utilization. This residue can damage sensitive equipment (e.g. scratch optical equipment) and/or limit the capability of other machinery and instrumentation. Ventana Research will team-up with Kappler to develop a novel decontamin...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A03-181
Budget: 12/19/05 - 12/19/07

A series of coating formulations will be developed and refined during this Phase II Program which are capable of photooxidizing and decontaminating a variety of CW and TIC chemical compounds. A significant feature of these coatings is that they will be reasonably maintainence - free; requiring only air and visible light irradiation to function ...
