Research Institution
This proposal presents a Phase I SBIR project to develop a high precision, low disperse rate powder disseminator for the US Army. In the development of the sensitive detecting agent, we need to release a precise amount of C&B agents in the controlled detection experiments. However, such a technology does not exist at the present time. After examining existing technologies, we believe that the requirement of this SBIR call can be met only if new designs and control concepts are introduced. This SBIR project intends to design and develop a portable, low-output dry powder disseminator that disperses 1-10 micron powder at variable rates from approximately 350 nanogram/minute to 1 mg/minute. The technology to be developed by this project will significantly increase the speed of evaluating various C&B detection agents thus to enhance the country’s C&B defense capabilities, and has a potential to deliver a series of commercial products for precision handling of C&B agents in powder and other forms. The potential markets of the variants of the technology will include defense as well as pharmaceutical and chemical industries.
