Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-146
Budget: 11/10/03 - 12/15/05

In Phase I, we demonstrated that high purity nanoparticles of spinel MgAl2O4 can be synthesized using a novel chemical synthesis process that was recently invented by us. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that nanopowders of MgAl2O4 have ever been synthesized. Sinterable spinel MgAl2O4 nanopowders are needed to fabricate fine ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-121
Budget: 08/20/03 - 08/20/05

Sapphire (single crystal aluminum oxide) is the most commonly used material in infrared transparent windows and domes in `heat seeking' missiles. A replacement for sapphire is sought for improved performance in high speed missile applications, and at the same time, reduce the cost of the windows and domes by a factor of two. High purity fine gra...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA03-059
Budget: 08/05/03 - 01/21/04

Sapphire has been the dominant infrared transparent material for quite some time, and polycrystalline materials such as, magnesium fluoride, aluminum oxynitride and yttrium oxide, have been used to a limited extent when the performance criteria have been less stringent. Polycrystalline and transparent oxide ceramics that have a cubic crystal str...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N03-009
Budget: 07/01/03 - 01/01/04

Building upon our newly developed chemical synthesis process, which is now being used to produce oxide nanopowders with exceptional particle characteristics, we propose to develop an economical and environmentally acceptable process for producing high quality sinterable nanopowders of fluoride compounds (e.g. MgF2 and CaF2) that can be consolida...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD02-EP06
Budget: 01/30/03 - 07/30/04

The energy density of Li-ion batteries can be enhanced by utilizing cathodes that have significantly higher energy density than that of state-of-the-art LiCoO2. The proposed program focuses on developing novel nanocomposites with a theoretical energy density of ~ 800 Wh/kg, which is more than 60% higher than that of the practical energy density...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD02-EP06
Budget: 01/30/03 - 07/30/04

There is an immediate need for low cost, reliable and safe rechargeable batteries with high energy density (i.e. superior to state of the art Li-ion batteries) for use in a variety of military, aerospace and commercial applications. Rechargeable Mg2+ batteries offer the potential to fulfill these requirements. Such batteries are termed polyvalen...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-146
Budget: 01/21/03 - 11/17/03

We propose to use a novel synthesis process to produce ultrafine (0.1 - 0.4 microns) and highly sinterable powders of MgAl2O4 spinel. The synthesis process, which utilizes nanoparticles as starting material, overcomes the limitations posed by conventional powder synthesis processes on the chemical purity as well as the phase purity of the spinel...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-014
Budget: 01/17/03 - 07/16/03

For quite some time, a suitable replacement for the environmentally harmful depleted uranium (DU) for use as long rod penetrators has remained elusive. Tungsten based heavy alloys, commonly termed WHAs, with a tungsten grain size in the several tens of microns, come close to the performance of DU for kinetic energy (KE) penetrators in general, b...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Fraunhofer Center - Delaware

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO02T-00
Budget: 08/07/02 - 02/06/03

Building upon Fraunhofer Center's recently developed process of producing reactive nanoparticles (e.g., metals, carbides and nitrides) at high rates in a pristine environment, and Nanopowder Enterprises Inc.'s technology of dispersing nanoparticles uniformly as a second phase in a polymer matrix, we propose to develop a generic technology for fa...

Topic: AF02-121
Budget: 05/10/02 - 02/10/03
