Advanced Reactive Materials as Propellants

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Kenneth K. Kuo, President and Chief Scien
Award Amount: $629,993.00
Abstract:
"The two main objectives of the Phase II study are (1) todemonstrate the high propulsive performance of a family ofenergetic solid fuels and propellants developed in the Phase Iprogram and (2) to further refine their formulations includingnano-sized energetic particles for performance optimization… More

Accelerator for Hydrogen Peroxide Cat Bed Start

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Kenneth K. Kuo, President and Chief Scien
Award Amount: $99,998.00
Abstract:
A novel accelerator system will be developed to enhance oxygen generation from a hydrogen-peroxide catalytic bed, for the purpose of improving start-up performance and reducing system response time. The system will rapidly increase system temperature using chemical stimulation of the hydrogen… More

Safe and Flexible Propulsion Technologies for Kinetic Energy Boost Phase Intercept Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Kenneth K. Kuo, President
Award Amount: $69,998.00
Abstract:
The objective of this proposal is the development of a candidate bi-propellant system consisting of a fuel-rich component gelled with energetic nano-sized particles coupled with a highly energetic storable liquid oxidizer for kinetic energy interceptor applications. Theoretical calculations… More

Advanced Divert and Attitude Control (DACS) system for the Multiple (Miniature) Kill Vehicles (MKV)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Kenneth K. Kuo, Chief Scientist and President
Award Amount: $99,990.00
Abstract:
One possible method to intercept intercontinental ballistic missiles which deploy countermeasures is to use a "shotgun" approach, in which numerous small, cheap kill vehicles are deployed simultaneously in the hopes of scoring multiple hits. In order to be effective, such vehicles must be compact,… More

Combustion Enhancement of Liquid Fuels via Nanoparticle Additions

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Kenneth K. Kuo, President and Chief Scientist – (814) 880-2111
Award Amount: $149,993.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Addition of nano-sized energetic particles to liquid fuel (e.g., JP-8 or RP-1) offers the possibility of increasing energy density, while maintaining or improving ignition characteristics of the bulk fuel. When used in stable dispersions of small percentages of additives, only limited… More
