Award List:

Low-Cost Processing of Aluminum-Based Nanothermites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Jacek Swiatkiewicz, Senior Research Scientist
Award Amount: $79,999.00
Abstract:
The proposed Phase I SBIR work is focused on development and testing of a continuous process for mixing of binary nanopowders in a micro-mixer system. The main focus will be on safe mixing of aluminum and bismuth trioxide or iron oxide nanopowders in water for their application as percussion… More

Development and Scale-Up of Nanothermite Composites for Propellant Ignition

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Zac Doorenbos, R&D Engineer – (605) 484-3434
Award Amount: $69,964.00
Abstract:
This SBIR Phase I project proposes development of a technologically feasible batch process for making nitrocellulose-nanothermite composites in a granular form for the ignition of propellants. The R & D will focus on the determination of burn rates, dynamic pressure profiles and ESD… More

Development and Scale-Up of Nanothermite Composites for Propellant Ignition

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Zac Doorenbos, Principal R&D Engineer – (605) 484-3434
Award Amount: $729,842.00
Abstract:
The main objective of this proposal SBIR Phase II project is to scale-up and demonstrate the low-cost formation of 15-35 kg/yr of nanothermite-nitrocellulose composite granules for propellant ignition and as additives to explosive materials. All of the reactants used for the energetic composites… More
