Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 17
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

Statement of the problem or situation that is being addressed in your application Radioiodine is produced during neutron-induced fission reaction when 235U atoms are split into lower atomic weight isotopes such as 129I. Some of the water bodies at sites where reactors were fueled by uranium are contaminated with 129I. Currently there is no viabl...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Princeton University

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 09
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

Despite the dramatic growth of natural gas resources, methane (the major component in natural gas) is underutilized as a feedstock for the production of chemicals and liquid fuels. Currently, methane conversion relies on an indirect two-step gas-to-liquid (GTL) technology. This process is energy intensive and has high operating costs. We propose...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H8.04
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

The proposed program addresses NASA's need for advanced battery technologies, and in particular the energy storage needs for Extravehicular Activities. The most advanced commercially available Li-ion batteries use intercalation-based cathode materials, where the energy density is limited by the oxidation states of the metal oxide and the availab...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A1.09
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16
PI: Jiong Liu

The proposed program addresses NASA's need for a new generation of icing mitigation technology for manned and unmanned vehicles, particularly related to icing on airframe of flight into supercooled liquid water clouds and regions of high ice crystal density. The state of the art active deicing method on leading edges involves either an electrica...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 12c
Budget: 03/01/16 - 11/21/16

The state-of-the-art polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) for fuel cells is based on perfluorosulfonic acid (PFSA) ionomers. Besides the high cost, PFSA materials face challenges such as decreased proton conductivity at high operating temperatures, water management issues and CO poisoning. Lower cost non-PFSA membranes with satisfactory performanc...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H4.01
Budget: 07/09/15 - 07/08/17

The space suit assembly (SSA) contains metallic bearings at the wrist, neck, and waist, which are exposed to space environment, and pose a potential shock hazard. Current methods to mitigate the hazard are short-term, and there is a need for an insulative and durable coating on the metallic components. In Phase I, working with a supplier of spac...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-103
Budget: 07/24/14 - 06/30/15

ABSTRACT: The use of energetic nanomaterials in munitions has the potential to increase lethality due to the high energy content provided by these materials. However, the propensity of nanoparticles, such as aluminum, to prematurely oxidize significantly reduces the total energy content. Such oxidation is unavoidable in any current large-scale c...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A14-057
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Lens fogging leads to diminished visual performance of personal protective eyewear in certain extreme environments. Currently available anti-fog coatings on military goggles are not resistant to scratching and chemicals. Further, their anti-fog performance degrades as a result of cleaning and sanitization procedures. In collaboration with a lead...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A14-079
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

There is an unmet need in the US Army for advancing the state of the art in materials for Transparent Armor (TA), especially with respect to abrasion resistance of the exterior surface. Stones are frequently kicked up within the convoy resulting in cracked/broken windshields which need to be replaced. This necessitates the need for improved TA p...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-103
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

ABSTRACT: It has been a challenge to realize the benefits of energetic metal nanoparticles due to the severe oxidation that occurs on the particle surface, which leads to significantly diminished performance during combustion. We propose to improve the energetic properties and air-stability of aluminum nanoparticles by encapsulating them with a...
