SBC: Black Hills Nanosystems Topic: MDA14022
Ignition of rocket motors can be performed using low-volt firing components, but MIL-STD-1901A requires mechanical isolation for safety. While traditional safe & arm devices are available, they are relatively large and heavy. Recent progress in MEMS has developed miniature safe & arm devices for low-cost munitions such as 40MM grenade and airburst munitions. The Black Hills Nanosystems team has ...SBIR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: Re/Spec Inc. Topic: 21a
Deep geological disposal is a promising and widely accepted method for long-term disposal of nuclear waste, and the option of deep borehole disposal is considered an inherently safe method. The feasibility of the deep borehole option relies upon designing and constructing an effective seal within the borehole that ensures the waste package does not communicate through the borehole itself with th ...SBIR Phase II 2015 Department of Energy
Corrosion-Resistant Crystalline-Oxide Coatings on Steel Substrates by An Immersion Anodizing ProcessSBC: NanoCoatings, Inc. Topic: 12b
Engineered biomass combustors offer significant reductions in harmful emissions, reduced cooking-times and fuel usage. However, steel components used in the combustors suffer from corrosion degradation due to the aggressive halide salts and water vapor released during biomass fuel combustion. The Department of Energy desires the development of low-cost survivable components that extend the lifet ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of Energy
