Award List:

Synthesis of Nano Composite Super Thermites with Tunable Energy Release

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Keshab Gangopadhyay, President, NEMS/MEMS Works, LLC
Award Amount: $69,936.00
Abstract:
The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of producing novel nanoenergetic composites composed of nanoengineered thermites (mainly, copper oxide, iron oxide and Al-nanoparticles) together with other additives. The synthesis of these composites will be achieved by surfactant… More

Scale Up of Components of Nanothermites with Tunable Properties and Characterization Thereof

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Keshab Gangopadhyay, President
Award Amount: $729,966.00
Abstract:
The primary objective of the Phase II research and development is to scale-up the production of components of nanoengineered thermites (or, nanothermites) in pound quantities in a safe manner. In Phase I, we have achieved the proof-of-concepts for the synthesis of several nanoscale oxides, assembly… More

Fast-Impulse Solid Fuel Miniature Thruster

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Steve Apperson, Vice-President
Award Amount: $69,377.00
Abstract:
Nanothermite composites containing metallic fuel and inorganic oxidizer have unique combustion properties that make them potentially useful for microthruster applications. The properties can be further tuned by addition of other chemicals in the nanoscale as required for different applications. The… More

Fast-Impulse Solid Fuel Miniature Thruster

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Steven Apperson, Vice President – (573) 808-0235
Award Amount: $729,655.00
Abstract:
A Fast Impulse Solid Fuel Miniature Thruster system will be developed for a specific application beneficial to the US Army. The selection of right nanoenergetic material will be done from various fuel-oxidizer systems to obtain thrust and specific impulse as required by the application. Fine-tuning… More
