Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Joseph W. Maresca, Jr., CEO
Award Amount: $98,787.00
Abstract:
Vista Engineering Technologies will develop, demonstrate, and commercialize a novel tracer technology to rapidly detect and quantify the concentration of active and inactive CWA/BWA in a building following an attack. One or more interactive and conservative tracers are introduced into a room or the… More

Fixation of Radionuclide Contamination in Ductwork Using Advanced Fogging Formulations

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Research Institution: Idaho National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: James R. Kriskovich, Mr.
Award Amount: $99,848.00
RI Contact: Nolan C. Olson
Abstract:
Contamination control is crucial during the deactivation and decommission (D&D) of DOE facilities, as well as during modifications to existing systems, to help eliminate airborne contamination release. This project will develop a capture-coating (fogging) formulation that can be used in existing… More

Imaging the Stratigraphy Around a CPT Penetration Using a Combined ERT and CPT Method

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Research Institution: Lawerence Livermore National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Wesley L. Bratton, Dr.
Award Amount: $99,888.00
RI Contact: Annette T. MacIntyre
Abstract:
In order to determine the fate and transport of contaminants generated from past weapons production activities, there is a need to measure the key factors that affect the flow and transport of water and contaminants in the shallow subsurface. Specifically, a method is needed for the real-time… More
