Award List:

Low Cost Nanostructured Tantalum for Armor Piercing Ammunition/Warheads

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Douglas P. DuFaux, Director
Award Amount: $99,940.00
Abstract:
Explosively Formed Penetrators (EFPs) are an important component of today's military. They are capable of penetrating many inches (even feet) of armor. Needless to say, high performance is of critical concern and continued improvement requires advanced materials that can perform under severe… More

Low-Cost Quasi-Amorphous Carbon Dielectrics for Pulsed Power Capacitors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Douglas P. DuFaux, Director - ND Innovations
Award Amount: $99,797.00
Abstract:
As our military continues to evolve and become more reliant on highly sophisticated equipment, the need for advanced electronics to support their operation is becoming increasingly more important. Clearly, one of the most important transformations is in the area of weapons systems. In fact, the… More

High Performance Nanostructured Tantalum for Warhead Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Douglas P. DuFaux, Director of ND Innovation
Award Amount: $671,114.00
Abstract:
Explosively Formed Penetrators (EFPs) are an important component of today's military. They are capable of penetrating many inches (even feet) of armor. Needless to say, high performance is important and continued improvement requires materials that can perform under severe conditions. Budget and… More

Low-Cost CNT Obscurants from Vehicle/Aircraft Exhaust and Diffusion Flames

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Douglas P. DuFaux, Director - ND Innovations
Award Amount: $119,527.00
Abstract:
Although visual obscurants ("smoke screens") have a long history on the battlefield, use of infrared obscurants (IROs) is comparatively new. IROs are required when the enemy possesses IR based equipment (e.g., thermal sights and heat seeking missiles). Because recent developments have greatly… More

Low-Cost Carbon Nanotubes for Infrared Obscurants

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Douglas P. DuFaux, Director
Award Amount: $729,205.00
Abstract:
The Army seeks significant improvements in the protection of military targets through its use of infrared obscurants (IROs). Specifically, it calls for an order of magnitude improvement on the infrared extinction coefficient, while also minimizing costs. Existing obscurant technologies with… More

STTR Phase I: Novel Consolidation Method for Nanostructured Metals

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: Edison Welding Institute
Principal Investigator: Douglas P. DuFaux, Mr
Award Amount: $149,988.00
RI Contact: Kark L. Fraff
Abstract:
This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of producing nanostructured metals in a form that can be ultrasonically welded together. Sample coupons will be manufactured and the weld zone structure analyzed to determine the effects of ultrasonic… More

Development and Fabrication of Highly Conductive High Aspect Ratio Nanoflakes for Infrared Obscurant Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Gregory M. Berube, Materials Development Manager
Award Amount: $69,998.00
Abstract:
Infrared obscurants are commonly used to screen soldiers and assets from enemy threat. In order to improve this countermeasure, materials superior to currently used brass and graphite flakes are required. Nano-thick metallic flakes have recently been demonstrated to achieve superior performance in… More

Advanced Hybrid Thermoelectric-Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Energy Conversion for High Efficiency Portable Power

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Caine Finnerty, VP Fuel Cells
Award Amount: $99,333.00
Abstract:
Technology is rapidly advancing both in the area of thermoelectric (TE) modules and solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC). Advanced solid oxide fuel cells are theoretically capable of converting over 60% of the energy available in the fuel (based on the fuels lower heating value) to electricity at… More

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Andrew P. Hope, Project Manager
Award Amount: $364,967.00
Abstract:
Infrared obscurants are commonly used to screen soldiers and assets from enemy threat. In order to improve this countermeasure, materials superior to currently used brass and graphite flakes are required.
