10 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-130
Budget: 06/16/03 - 03/16/04

Currently, initiation of primary explosives such as lead azide is achieved by a hot wire ignition system. In order to decrease the fuze size, eliminate complexity of the fuze box and reduce the ignition time, there has been a need to replace the hot wire ignition system by laser ignition. Because lead azide is white in color, it scatters most o...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Virginia Commonwealth University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99T015
Budget: 02/07/01 - 02/07/03

In Phase I, Conducting Materials Corp, (CMC) proposed to fabricate stabilized nanoscale Li-Al ally particles and to understand their kinetic behavior by theoretical modeling. The unique properties of nano Li-Al alloy particles would increase energy output on explosion as it will react completely and improve the burn rate. CMC fabricated nano p...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N99-030
Budget: 06/28/00 - 06/28/02

The need for a variable output such as either a high internal blast or a high metal acceleration or a muted output arises in specific situations. This could be achieved by employing multiple low energy detonators. Most explosives use metallic aluminum to increase the energy output and increase the detonation velocity. By varying the size of the ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Virginia Commonwealth University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99T015
Budget: 10/19/99 - 07/19/00

Micron size A1 powder is a routine ingredient of explosive and propellant compositions. However, A1 does not burn to completion due to the oxidized surface of the particles. Hence the heat of combustion/explosion is less than the theoretical value. Furthermore, the rate of combustion being dependent on surface area, is slow. A way to overcome th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N99-030
Budget: 05/13/99 - 11/13/99

A need exists for an energetic material whose energy release rate and magnitude can be controlled so that it can provide either high internal blast or high metal acceleration or a muted output. This material is needed in conjunction with an adaptable ordnance technology program intended to develop a single package capable of producing multiple k...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A98-101
Budget: 12/18/98 - 06/18/99

Conducting Materials Corp. Proposes to support the antimalarial structure-based discovery efforts at Walter Reed Army Institure of Research, Division of Experimental Therapeutics. Specifically, serine hydroxymethyltransferase, an enzyme intimately linked to the metabolic functions of dihydrofolate reductase and thymidylate syntheses, will be ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N96-085
Budget: 09/26/97 - 09/26/99

Conducting Materials Corp. (CMC) has demonstrated that its Microwave Induced Rotation Excitation Technology (MIRET) can decompose materials such as HMX, RDX adn TNT into value added by-products, in an economically viable and safe manner. CMC's Phase I efforts thus far have already shown that Explosive D falls in the same category as HMX, TNT etc...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Maryland

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF96T007
Budget: 09/04/97 - 09/03/99

An Air-launched missile is typically equipped with a proximity detector whose role is to allow the missil's fuze to trigger detonation of its warhead when approaching the target. For supersonic missile-to-target approach velocities, proximity detection must begin when the target begins to fill the field of view of the missil's active guidance s...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Maryland

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF96T007
Budget: 07/02/96 - 12/31/96

Future integrated circuits will be based on fully integrated polymer materials with many different levels of conductivity including semiconducting polymers needed to produce p-n junctions and active devices based on p-n junctions. Metallic levels of conductivity have been achieved in the past by filling polymers with conductive particles. Howe...
