About Alameda Applied Sciences Corp.

Alameda Applied Sciences Corp. is a company that received a Department of Defense SBIR/STTR grant for a project entitled: A fast pulsed, high flux directed neutron source for large stand off detection of special nuclear materials. The abstract given for this project is as follows: Alameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes to develop a fast pulse, directed, fast neutron source to detect special nuclear materials at large stand off. Our source offers a <100ns neutron pulse with a repetition rate up to 1kHz. The Ph I program will demonstrate the critical features of the source including: a narrow neutron pulse width; a highly directed neutron beam; neutron rate scaling to the level required for 100m stand off detection of SNM. The commercial goal is to develop a replacement to existing isotropic neutron tube sources for applications that benefit from a directed high energy neutron beam.Alameda Applied Sciences Corp. is a company that received a Department of Defense SBIR/STTR grant for a project entitled: Non-toxic process for depositing highly-dense, corrosion-resistant aluminum on complex geometry components. The abstract given for this project is as follows: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes dry, non-toxic, plasma-based hybrid energetic ion deposition and implantation process to prepare highly-dense, corrosion-resistant aluminum on complex geometry aircraft components. By replacing electroplated Low Hydrogen Embrittlement cadmium (LHE-Cd), a highly toxic metal and known carcinogen with serious ES&H issues, AASC's non-toxic process can reduce compliance costs associated with mounting regulatory burdens and reduce the scope of potential legal liabilities faced by today's Navy. Ion vapor deposition (IVD) and sputtered aluminum, currently used as LHE-Cd replacements, are low energy PVD methods that suffer from columnar microstructures with lower grain boundary density that provide fast diffusion pathways for the anions and cations in corrosion reactions. Burnishing, peening or bead blasting post-processing steps are required to achieve full density, adding cost and reducing throughput. Comparatively, AASC's hybrid energetic ion deposition and implantation process collapse voids, breaks up columnar microstructures, and produces uniformly dense aluminum layers that will offer superior corrosion performance and avoid post-deposition steps. Further, the use of cathodic arc plasma sources, relative to evaporative (IVD) or sputtering sources, enables much higher rates of deposition.Alameda Applied Sciences Corp. is a company that received a Department of Defense SBIR/STTR grant for a project entitled: Production of New Durable, Transparent Conductive Coatings. The abstract given for this project is as follows: Transparent conductive indium tin oxide (ITO) coatings are used on the canopies of certain USAF aircraft for a variety of electromagnetic functions. However, the aircraft canopies suffer from short service lifetimes and must be replaced often because today's ITO coatings exhibit poor mechanical durability and scratch resistance as aircraft fly through rain and dust. The need for frequent replacements results in highly reduced mission capable rates. In Phase-I of this effort, Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation will use its highly energetic deposition technology to synthesize indium zinc oxide (IZO) transparent conductive coatings with improved durability, while maintaining >80% transmissivity from 400 - 1200 nm and <25 ohms per square. The overall goal of this research is to extend the service life of aircraft canopies by tenfold over existing ITO coating materials.Alameda Applied Sciences Corp. is a company that received a Department of Defense SBIR/STTR grant for a project entitled: Active Interrogation for Special Nuclear Materials (SNM) Detection Experimental Study. The abstract given for this project is as follows: AASC's objective is to mitigate the risk of implementing an active interrogation system based upon time of flight measurements. A fast pulse neutron source is a critical component of a time of flight system even at large stand off. This program directly addresses means to control the probe radiation pulse in a fast neutron source. In some concept of operations, pulse width is a larger concern than overall neutron yield per pulse.
