  1. Separation, Composting, Recycling and Repurposing System

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: DLA202006

    Triton Systems, Inc. will design a packaged food waste processing system capable of reducing the US military environmental footprint both inside and outside the United States. The system will be equipped with equipment to process expired military rations and separate food from plastic packaging. The separated plastics and organic material will be processed independently. Organic material will be r ...

    SBC: Engineered Vision LLC            Topic: DLA202007

    Through the use of cutting-edge automation technology, Engineered Vision believes they will be able to identify electric motors (EM) containing rare earth permanent magnets (NdFeB) and extract these elements. This new method of extraction and reuse will significantly reduce the number of processing steps required to put these used magnets back into useful service.

  3. Production of Al-Ce Casting Alloys Via Direct Reduction of Cerium Oxide

    SBC: ECK Industries, Inc.            Topic: DLA202008

    This proposal continues the development of aluminum alloy systems that use cerium as a primary alloying element at near eutectic compositions. Additional alloying elements can be used primarily to assist in the development of room-temperature mechanical properties. The cerium in the alloy stabilizes those properties at high temperatures (200-400°C). The primary intermetallic formed in the aluminu ...

  4. Commercial Applications for Recycled Rare Earth Zirconate Thermal Barrier Coating Materials

    SBC: XYLON TECHNICAL CERAMICS INC.            Topic: DLA202009

    This Phase I project seeks to develop a method for the recycling of rare earth zirconate thermal barrier coatings (TBCs).  Thermal barrier coatings are crucial to the function and performance of military aircraft engines, as they influence the operating temperatures and environments for the aircrafts.  There are currently two main types of established thermal barrier coating materials, yttria-s ...

  5. New Process Developed for Recovery of High Purity Cobalt/Nickel Oxide in High Yield from Commercial LIB Black Mass and Related Cobalt/Nickel Waste Streams

    SBC: American Hyperform, Inc            Topic: DLA202010

    Maximizing the recycling of lithium-ion batteries (LIB) to recover the strategically important cobalt and nickel is a major concern of all commercial users and manufacturers of the LIB.  DLA with this SBIR has taken the initiative to encourage the development of more complete recovery of cobalt and nickel at higher purity and value.  The present value of the nickel and cobalt as it is in the rec ...

  6. Recovery of Waste Battery Materials Using Molten Salt Oxidation and Separation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DLA202010

    Lithium-ion batteries provide a popular energy storage option due to their high energy and power density compared to other technologies and demand is expected to continue to grow. Most lithium-ion battery chemistries rely on cobalt and nickel oxides, both of which are fairly expensive and which the United States obtains primarily via imports. Despite this limitation, most lithium-ion batteries are ...

  7. Rapid Viral Pandemic Suppression With Molecular Affinity Development


    This SBIR Phase I project will develop a platform and protocol to rapidly identify and prepare materials and methods for the suppression of a viral pandemic after the virus has been identified and sequenced. The project will focus on the currently ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but the platform can apply to future viral pandemics. With this platform, pandemics can be suppressed with at least two of th ...

  8. Extreme Efficiency Nanodroplet Air Filtration

    SBC: Hedgefog Research Inc.            Topic: DLA202011

    It is becoming increasingly apparent that the major pathway of the COVID-19 transmission is through respiratory droplets. This effect is of especially large concern in closed, poorly ventilated spaces, with people aggregating in close proximity. Therefore, effective air filtration in warehouses and other buildings is one of the most effective ways of limiting COVID-19 transmission. Unfortunately, ...

  9. Novel Spectroscopic Detection of Viral Pathogens in Saliva

    SBC: Lightsense Technology, Inc.            Topic: DLA202011

    This DOD grant addresses the need for rapid screening for the presence of the coronavirus at large venues such as military bases and hospitals, VA hospitals, etc. It is based on a radically new spectrometer architecture that integrates data from separate miniature spectrometers, all incorporated into one handheld instrument, using multimodal data fusion and Artificial Intelligence for pattern reco ...

  10. A New, Simple, Rapid, On-Site Test for Detection of and Prevention from SARS-CoV Viruses

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: DLA202011

    The overall goal of this proposal is to develop a new approach for the detection of and protection from the coronaviruses SARS-CoV-1 and SARS-CoV-2. The test uses a tongue scrape sample and gives a simple response, positive or negative, in less than 10 minutes. Our novel approach measures the activity of an enzyme of the SARS virus that causes COVID. This enzyme is a protease that cleaves a short ...
