Award List:

A Reactive Coating for Air Purification

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: James H. White, Research Fellow – (303) 530-0263
Award Amount: $99,999.00
Abstract:
This SBIR Phase I project addresses development of a self-cleaning coating for removing air-borne chemical and biological species. The coating materials possess impressive properties e.g., ambient temperature adsorptive and low temperature thermal catalytic oxidation activity towards VOCs;… More

Development of a Nanothermite-Based Propellant Initiator for Army Munitions

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: James H. White, Research Fellow – (303) 530-0263
Award Amount: $69,955.00
Abstract:
This proposed SBIR Phase I program addresses the development of a nanothermite-based initiator (primer) for use in Army munitions. This technology will enable a propellant initiator producing high maximum pressure, long pressure duration, and insensitivity to electrostatic discharge (ESD).… More

Highly Durable Catalysts for Ignition of Advanced Monopropellants

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: James H. White, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $124,997.00
Abstract:
Monopropellants are readily ignited or decomposed over a bed of solid catalyst. A serious limitation of existing catalysts in the ignition of advanced monopropellants is limited thermal stability. The recent emphasis on improved performance of monopropellant technology (e.g., with AF M315E and… More

Advanced Nanostructured Powders for Cold Spray Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Sara Rolfe, Senior Scientist – (303) 530-0263
Award Amount: $730,000.00
Abstract:
Cold spray has many benefits compared to conventional thermal spray including lower deposition temperatures, higher bond strengths, less substrate preparation and better control of coating composition, phase structure, and oxide contamination. In cold spray, particles are accelerated by an expanding… More

Refractory Coating for Heat Resistant Portable Helipad

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Sara Rolfe, Senior Scientist – (303) 530-0263
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
Eltron Research & Development, Inc (Eltron) has developed a refractory, flexible, inorganic paint that has shown excellent performance in protecting polymers from direct heat sources. In this project, Eltron will coat portable helipad mat materials such as polyethylene and polyester as well as… More
