Abstract:
Nano-Proprietary, Inc. (OTCBB: NNPP) announced that its subsidiary, Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI), has been awarded an SBIR Phase II contract for the continued development of a "Carbon Nanotube (CNT)-Based Gas Ionizer to Replace Radioactive Sources" from the Homeland Security Advanced Research Project Agency (HSARPA). This 18-month contract is for approximately $1,000,000 and results from the successful completion of the Phase I contract for the same project.

Nano-Proprietary, Inc. Awarded Homeland Security Contract for CNT-Based Gas Ionizer

Austin, TX | Posted on October 24th, 2007

Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) has an overall objective of aiding in the development of novel technologies to replace radiological sources used in commercial applications as a means of reducing the risk of nuclear material being diverted for dirty bombs. Under this contract, ANI is partnering with Sionex Corporation to continue development of innovative CNT-Based field emission ionization source technology. The goal of phase II is to develop the technology to replace the ion source in a specific ion detection device manufactured by Sionex.

Sionex's Chief Scientist, Dr. Erkinjon Nazarov, reported, "The project is the result of applying sound fundamental scientific principles to very sound high technology. The result is the stable production of ions, both positive and negative, at atmospheric pressure without the need for a radioactive source, conventional plasma, or corona discharge technologies. This impact will change the commercial viability of mobility spectroscopy systems across many market segments."

"The commercialization of electron emission from CNTs is expanding beyond display and lighting devices to novel commercial applications such as ionization sources, x-ray sources, neutron sources, electron sources, sensors, and many other sources, that are relevant to both homeland security and consumer applications," said Dr. Zvi Yaniv, President and CEO of ANI. "We are well positioned to support our strategic partners with our knowledge and the intellectual property that we have accumulated over the years."

"This contract represents an ideal blending of two of our technology platforms, involving both CNT emission technology and sensors," said Tom Bijou, Chairman and CEO of Nano-Proprietary.
