Award List:

Micro-Atomizing Logistic-Fuel Delivery System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Michael Andrie, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $698,642.00
Abstract:
Converting bulk liquid fuel into a finely atomized mist is the standard method for homogeneously mixing it with the air essential for combustion. In military field situations logistic-fuels like JP8 are easy to supply but are viscous and less filtered making them difficult to micro-atomize and… More

Micro-Atomizing Logistic-Fuel Delivery System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Mike Andrie, Principle Investigator
Award Amount: $69,592.00
Abstract:
Given the high pressures required to micro-atomize logistics fuels, we believe the smallest and safest Micro-Atomizing Logistic-Fuel Delivery System can be achieved by using a pre-combustion vaporization strategy. State-of-the-art capillary pumps can gasify high-viscosity liquid fuels with… More

Development of a Extremely Compact and Lightweight Sleeping Bag

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Mike Andrie, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
New paradigms in lightweight sleeping system design are required to address the high-mobility needs of today's soldier. Functional requirements that include use from -40 degrees F to +80 degrees F, a weight limit of 7.22 pounds and a maximum stored volume of 104 in3 will necessitate the use of… More

On site sterilizing solution production system

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Tim Oriard, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $69,977.00
Abstract:
Chlorine bleach (a 6% solution of sodium hypochlorite in) is the main disinfectant used in the food service and food production industry. It is also used for water supply treatment. It is inexpensive and available in many parts of the world. The very property that makes it such a good chemical… More

On site sterilizing solution production system

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Ian Norris, Research Engineer – (206) 676-6005
Award Amount: $600,000.00
Abstract:
The Marine Corps currently uses 5 wt% sodium hypochlorite solutions (bottled bleach) as a general disinfectant/sanitizer in their combat field kitchens. Diluted bleach solutions are used for processing fresh fruits and vegetables, water purification, surface sanitizing, and general cleaning use.… More

Modular In-Line Water Purifier for MOLLE Hydration Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Tim Oriard, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $69,950.00
Abstract:
Addressing the water purification needs of the Army in a lightweight and compact system is not trivial given the diverse range of waterborne contaminants that could potentially be found on the battlefield. Based upon Cascade Designs expertise at developing individual water purification systems for… More

Modular In-Line Water Purifier for MOLLE Hydration Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Tim Oriard, Principal Investigator – (206) 676-6047
Award Amount: $390,209.00
Abstract:
Based on Cascade Designs expertise at developing individual water purification systems for the military and outdoor markets, we are proposing a novel in-line filter design that is based on incorporating multiple water purification technologies contained in a MOLLE compatible filter housing. Our… More
