Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO02-003
Budget: 03/18/04 - 03/17/06

The objective of this Phase II project is to complete the research required to deliver to the THAAD program for military qualification testing a low cost, easy to use, passive, nonreversible, MEMs based, chemiresistor sensor for the detection of hydrazine in missile canisters. The Air Force has set the maximum exposure limit to hydrazine at 10 ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

The risk of biological terrorism is significant because of the high potency, widespread availability, and ease of dissemination of some biological threat agents. The earliest recognition of a bioterrorist attack may be indicated only by the clinical manifestation of the intended disease which, in some cases, can take days to weeks to present its...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a biosensor for the rapid detection of infectious agents such as pathogenic bacteria. The key technology in the proposed work is the use of magnetostrictive materials, which when exposed to a time varying magnetic field, can be made to resonant at a characteristic freque...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA03-055
Budget: 08/13/03 - 02/09/04

Innovative manufacturing processes to fabricate non-eroding rocket nozzles are fundamental technologies that could revolutionize nearly all core missions of the Missile Defense Agency. Coatings to protect graphite and C-C composite materials from erosion have had limited success due to the high costs and inhomogenities in the structure and com...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO02-003
Budget: 05/09/02 - 11/09/02

Hydrazine is a widely used missile propellant that is highly toxic to humans in low exposures. The maximum exposure limit is 10ppb over an 8 hour time period. To insure the readiness of BMDO missiles and the safety of personnel during missile transport and storage, it is desired to monitor the interior of missile storage canisters for hydrazin...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 02-1
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

Existing technologies of biological sensing and radio frequency communications developed at Weld Star Technology will be applied to improve the safety of human habitation in space. The innovative sensors for pathogenic biological species possess high sensitivity, selectivity and short response time. This technology is based on the acoustic wave ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1995
Budget: 01/01/95 - 12/31/95

NONDESTRUCTIVE TESTING, IDENTIFICATION, AND REPAIR OF WELD DEFECTS HAVE BEEN DOCUMENTED TO CONSUME AS MUCH AS 25% OF THE TOTAL WELD PRODUCTION COST IN PIPELINES, SHIP FABRICATION, AND POWER GENERATING SYSTEMS. INFRARED SENSOR CONTROLLED WELDING SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN DEMONSTRATED THAT WOULD GREATLY REDUCE OR ELIMINATE EXPENSIVE, AFTER-THE-FACT NONDE...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1994
Budget: 01/01/94 - 12/31/94
