Atmospheric Plasma Solutions to Present PlasmaBlast™ Precision Coating Removal Solution at Navy Forum for SBIR/STTR Transition, April 9-11, 2018

Atmospheric Plasma Solutions (APS) will be participating in the Navy Forum for SBIR/STTR Transition (FST), April 9-11, 2018 at the Gaylord National Convention Center, National Harbor, Maryland.

Glenn Astolfi, President of APS, will present PlasmaBlast™ – The Next Generation Coating Removal Solution on Tuesday, April 10 at 3:30 P.M. in the Ship Repair, Maintenance Technologies Tech Talk, Annapolis 4 room.

The PlasmaBlast system uses a low-pressure compressed air source and electricity to produce a special form of atmospheric pressure air plasma. The plasma beam is scanned across a coated surface to remove the coating layer-by-layer, allowing for full or selective removal, in addition to cleaning and surface preparation. The PlasmaBlast system vaporizes most paint and coatings into harmless gases and leaves behind a small amount of dust that is safely collected with a vacuum. Because the plasma is able to flow around surface features, it is well suited to treat both flat and more complex surfaces.

Atmospheric Plasma Solutions is a proud participant in the Department of the Navy STP Program (SBIR Transition Program).

Now in its eighteenth year, the FST Forum has been a long-standing venue for connecting SBIR/STTR-funded technologies with warfighters, government acquisition and technical personnel, large primes, system integrators, and other potential partners/collaborators. Learn more about the FST program at

APS will also participate in the FST exposition located in the Woodrow Wilson hall, booth 116. See our location at:

APS is seeking partners to help set final product requirements, develop use scenarios and perform operational tests and evaluations using the system under operational mission conditions. To participate in the program, contact Glenn Astolfi at
