Abstract:
Austin, Texas-based Nano-Proprietary, Inc. (OTCBB: NNPP) announced that its subsidiary, Applied Nanotech, Inc. ("ANI"), completed its Small Business Innovation Research ("SBIR") Phase II contract with the U.S. Air Force covering the development of a Carbon Monoxide ("CO") sensor system.

Nano-Proprietary, Inc. Announces Completion of Air Force Contract

Austin, TX | Posted on May 5th, 2008

Under this contract, ANI developed a CO sensor system and delivered three test units to the U.S. Air Force. The sensor system is a handheld, battery operated, low power unit with an estimated operational time of up to 8,000 hours with a single battery. The unit measures CO levels at temperatures ranging from -40C to 60C and at concentration levels from 0-250 parts per million. Visual and audible alarms are activated at two programmable CO concentration thresholds. As a result of proprietary control algorithms and electronic circuitry developed during the project, ANI has created a sensor system which has enhanced accuracy levels below 20 parts per million and low power consumption. The unit provides the capability to store measured data, including CO level, temperature, alerts, and time stamp, at regular intervals to an internal data log. The CO sensor system includes software which may be installed on a PC to download the data log or for real time monitoring of the device.

"I strongly believe that our CO sensor system can be of benefit to the U.S. Air Force and other military organizations after proper ruggedization," said Dr. Zvi Yaniv, President and Chief Executive Officer of Applied Nanotech, Inc. "In parallel, we will simplify and reduce costs for the system in order to provide a solution for high volume commercial applications, such as combination carbon monoxide and smoke detectors."
