Research Institution
This proposal presents a Phase II SBIR project to produce prototypes of the automated high precision, low disperse rate powder disseminator for the US Army, that has been successfully designed and analyzed in the Phase I project. In the development of the sensitive detecting agent, we need to release a precise amount of C&B agents in the controlled detection experiments. At the end of this Phase II SBIR project, we shall demonstrate the performance of the automated low-output dry powder disseminator that disperses 1-10 micron powder at variable rates from approximately 350 nanogram/minute to 1 mg/minute, and develop detailed commercialization plans in order to produce the instrument for the US Army laboratories and to explore other industrial applications of the technology, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry. The automated powder dissemination system 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.
