Abstract
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I Project focuses on the development of an innovative method biofouling removal from the surface of propellers. The proposed method is non abrasive and will not lead to damage of propeller surface edges. In Phase I Enigmatics will demonstrate feasibility of the proposed cleaning technique. Phase I option will focus on design of cleaning system that will be demonstrated in Phase II, a system scalability study, as well as preparing biofouled samples to be used in Phase II. The proposed technology will be used to provide an environmentally friendly, low cost and effective method for cleaning Navy propellers. The Phase I research will be to gain a full understanding of concept capabilities and limitations in order to accurately assess process economics and system advantages.
