Not Available Triton Systems proposes to combine environmentally-friendly natural biodegradable precursor materials with its innovative nanotechnology to develop environmentally-safe gun plugs for 5 /54 caliber (and other) propelling charges that can be safely disposed in marine environments in accord with the MARPOL treaty. Our innovative approach will produce Naval gun plugs that not only (i) successfully seal the gun barrel from the marine environment, and (ii) provide the required buffer for packing the projectile with propelling charge in the gun mount, but are also biodegradable. Our innovative strategy will therefore enhance the biodegradability and will also ensure that the gun plugs meets all the other property specifications. In Phase I, Triton will prepare ES-polyurethanes, optimize the performance level with respect to Naval Sea Systems Command Specifications, and produce prototype gun plugs. In the Phase II Program, we will optimize the ES-polyurethane formulation, and scale up to make full size gun plugs for the 5 barrel. Extensive mechanical and environmental testing will be performed on these prototypes. In Phase III, Triton will team with a Naval polyurethane supply house for the preparation of prototype gun plugs for field testing.
