Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-115
Budget: 08/21/09 - 05/28/10

A need exists for a reliable, non-destructive, in-situ method to monitor the chemistry of solid rocket motor propellant to determine its health and stability during the service life of the motor. Ideally, the sensor would be able to monitor the chemical components of the motor and not affect the propellant, the liner, or the rocket motor compos...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

The removal of sulfur and CO2 from hydrocarbon streams and power plant effluents is a major problem. Because the sulfur is normally in the form of H2S, this acid gas is scrubbed using aqueous amine solutions that are difficult to control with conventional technology. CO2 scrubbing may soon be required to reduce green house gases. This project...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

78230S In the production of gasoline, refineries currently monitor acid strength via titration techniques once or twice per shift, which results in running higher-than-optimal acid concentrations to ensure that the process proceeds uninterrupted. This project will develop a reliable in situ method using Raman scattering technology to continual...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO01-013
Budget: 05/22/03 - 05/22/05

We propose developing a compact, optical fiber-based Raman scattering instrument for rapid, in-situ health monitoring and analysis of solid rocket motors and propellants relied on for the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) program. The instrument will incorporate diode laser-based, full-spectrum Raman scattering for continuous in-situ remote ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO01-013
Budget: 05/11/01 - 11/10/01

We propose developing a compact, optical fiber-based Raman scattering instrument for rapid, in-situ analysis of composites, solid rocket motors, and propellants. The instrument will incorporate diode laser-based, full-spectrum Raman scattering for continuous in-situ remote monitoring of the composite and propellant chemistry. Narrow well defin...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO98-003
Budget: 04/28/99 - 04/30/01

We propose developing a high power (20 to 50 W) power-buildup, external cavity laser system incorporating a frequency-stabilized, diode laser with high-power and long life. Our approach can provide fixed-frequency radiation sources for space-based detection of atmospheric components as well as for many commercial environmental and process monit...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO98-003
Budget: 04/08/98 - 10/07/98

We propose to develop intermediate to high power (.1 to 4 W), frequency- stable diode lasers with high modulation capability and long life. Our approach can provide fixed-frequency radiation sources for 1 pace-based ballistic missile defense applications. To demonstrate the technology we will develop a compact, lightweight, relatively inexpensiv...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Utah

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 1998
Budget: 01/01/98 - 12/31/98
PI: Unavailable

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF96-102
Budget: 02/14/97 - 05/14/99

We propose to develop a diode-laser-based, full-spectrum Raman scattering instrument incorporating a multipass, external cavity enhancement cell for full spectrum, gas phase analysis of environmental pollutants. Narrow, well-defined Raman peaks and insensitivity to moisture contamination allow for full-spectrum detection with better than 1 ppm ...
