Award List:

AN IMPROVED BLOOD PURIFICATION SYSTEM MAY RESULT FROM A FILTER COMPOSED OF ACTIVATED CHARCOAL IMMOBILIZED IN A POROUS POLYMERIC MATRIX.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1985 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Gaspard x. criner , PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
An improved blood purification system may result from a filter composed of activated charcoal immobilized in a porous polymeric matrix. the filtration device will be formulated so that it has low resistance to blood flow and does not cause red cell lysis. the polymeric matrix will also be capable of… More

OXYGEN GENERATION UTILIZING NON-CRYOGENIC PROCESSES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Bruce zenner
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Aquanautics corporation is currently developing for the defense advanced research projects agency (darpa) a process for extracting pure oxygen from seawater. this technology could be adapted for naval surface vessel oxygen-from-air extraction. this technology uses specially designed water-soluble… More

OXYGEN EXTRACTION FROM MARS FOR ADVANCED MISSION LIFE SUPPORT AND POWER

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Dr bruce d zenner
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Conventional oxygen separation from gases has a low extraction efficiency and requires a large energy source. an innovative low power, efficient oxygen extractor could capture free oxygen from the martian atmosphere for use in life support or propulsion systems. since january 1985, the defense… More

ELECTROCHEMICAL OXYGEN PRESSURIZATION USING A CHEMICAL GAS-TO-LIQUID CONVERTER

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Dr sam mohanta
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Conventional high pressure oxygen compressors are unsafe due to the high combustibility of oil in the presence of pure oxygen. they must be specially designed to eliminate contact between oxygen and oil. conventional oxygen compressors are also inefficient and require special maintenance. binding… More

INTRODUCING LIQUID OXYGEN-CARRIERS DIRECTLY INTO FUEL CELLS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Dr john kerr
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Darpa's current artificial gill program uses specially designed oxygen-binding molecules which are electrochemically modulated to release the oxygen as a gas to feed a fuel cell for marine power. it may be possible for a fuel cell cathode to release and consume the oxygen from the liquid carrier… More

OXYGEN EXTRACTION FOR LIFE SUPPORT IN A CHEMICALLY CONTAMINATED ENVIRONMENT

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Dr sam mohanta
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Current life support systems for a chemically contaminated environment filter out contaminates and allow air to enter the individual or collective protection environment. this works well for known contaminates but may be susceptible to unknown chemicals. selectively capturing the oxygen without… More

A RELIABILE MAINTENANCE-FREE OXYGEN SENSOR FOR AIRCRAFT USING AN OXYGEN-SENSITIVE COATING ON POETENTIOMETRIC ELECTRODES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Dr emory de castro
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Current oxygen sensors are neither reliable nor maintenance-free. the measurement often consumes oxygen which results in probe failure. they require periodic recalibration and are frequently replaced. a passive, non-consuming sensor is possible by combining an oxygensensitive coating with a common… More

IMPROVEMENTS IN AEROBIC BIOREACTOR CELL CAPACITY THROUGH FACILITATED OXYGEN TRANSPORT AGENTS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1992 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: John Kerr
Award Amount: $49,993.00
Abstract:
Bioreactor processes produce important pharmaceuticals but are often limited for commercial scale-up by the amount of oxygen in the growth media. addition of an oxygen-binding agent to solution will improve oxygen flux rates and hence increase the productivity and/or number of cells per reactor… More

BEVERAGE DEOXYGENATION THROUGH ELECTROCHEMICALLY REGENERATEDMETAL CHELATES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1992 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: John Kerr , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $49,952.00
Abstract:
A method of beverage (wine, fruit juice) deoxygenation has been developed using electrochemically regenerated metal chelates to remove the oxygen from a recycling gas stream. the gas stream which is used to deoxygenate the beverage is fed to the electrochemically regenerated metal chelate solution… More
