Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.4-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

The company intends the Ribbon Pump to be an economically sustainable technology; a version will be developed that can be manufactured, distributed and installed at a price and operating cost which is accessible to the most resource constrained farmers in less developed countries without subsidy. With conventional pumping technologies generally ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BC-2012
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a biologically inspired undulatory swimming device in which all motion is achieved by the cyclical elastic deformation of a pre-stressed form-finding structural system actuated by Electroactive Polymer (EAP) transducers. The design presents and integrates multiple mechan...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N111-072
Budget: 09/28/12 - 03/28/14

Self-deployable hydrokinetic generator for tidal and riverine environments utilizing flexible components and electroactive polymers. Highly resistant to fouling or destruction to heavy objects in the current.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N111-072
Budget: 05/09/11 - 03/09/12

The Power Frond Generator utilizes unique geometry and flexible electroactive polymers to capture hydrokinetic energy via dynamic material strain. It accomplishes this without the need for bearings or exposed moving parts. The Power Frond is highly resistant to extreme events such as excessive water-flow speeds and impacting objects. It is highl...
