Award List:

Improved Methods of Explosively Disseminating Bi-Spectral Obscurant Materials

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Dave Crabb, Research Engineer
Award Amount: $69,922.00
Abstract:
The technical approach for preventing obscurant agglomeration must be multi-pronged; studying not only particle structure, but also explosive impulse loading, grenade burst pressure and composite geometry. The solution to particle agglomeration reduction and improved obscurant performance will most… More

Directionally-Tailored Infrared Emission and/or Transmission

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: University of Arizona
Principal Investigator: Hao Xin, Prof. of Electrical&Computer Eng. – (520) 626-6941
Award Amount: $99,427.00
RI Contact: Hao Xin
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: The primary objective of the proposed STTR is to develop a low-cost, high performance material which is capable of directionally-tailored thermal emission and/or transmission control. By combining advanced electromagnetic band structure engineering techniques with low-cost, self-assembled… More

Electromagnetic Absorbing Chaff

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Chris Williams, Research Scientist – (970) 243-8480
Award Amount: $79,855.00
Abstract:
Aluminum-coated, glass strands have been used for RF countermeasures (RFCM) for more than 50 years. This type of RFCM system is becoming outdated and potentially ineffective. New material technologies are needed to ensure aircraft RFCM are effective in the 21st century. Through the use of… More

Non-Toxic, Non-Incendiary Obscurant Smoke for Ammunition and Munitions

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Chris Williams, Research Scientist – (970) 243-8750
Award Amount: $99,419.00
Abstract:
The proposed research plan for the subject SBIR is to investigate in-situ, reactively synthesized obscurants which produce non-toxic, non-incendiary bi-products.

Improved Methods of Explosively Disseminating Bi-Spectral Obscurant Materials

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Chris Williams, Research Scientist – (970) 243-8750
Award Amount: $431,931.00
Abstract:
The Objective of Phase I was to develop improved methods for explosively disseminating non-toxic obscurant materials while minimizing particle damage and agglomeration due to the explosive forces. Of particular interest were materials having optical properties in both the infrared (IR) and visible… More

Innovative designs for reliable Electro-Explosive Ordnance Devices

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Chris Williams, Energetics Group Lead – (970) 243-8480
Award Amount: $148,863.00
Abstract:
Through the use of innovative energetic materials, Capco proposes to improve the reliability, shelf life, EMI hardening and performance of EED devices.

Absorption and/or Scattering of Light by Small Particles

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Chris Williams, Energetics Engr Group Lea – (970) 243-8480
Award Amount: $79,765.00
Abstract:
Capco proposes using materials developed in previous SBIR obscurant research efforts to prepare UVCM devices for test and evaluation. UV absorption will be optimized through particle geometry and processing parameters.
