Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: AS
Budget: 05/01/16 - 04/30/18

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is in reducing the environmental impact of Aluminum production. Global production of aluminum from bauxite ore currently accounts for 1% of global electricity consumption, and 2.5% of CO2 emission. Over the last 15 years global production h...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 25c
Budget: 06/08/15 - 03/07/16

Large nuclear waste treatment processing plants are in operation and under construction to convert waste into safe environmentally storable solid waste forms. The waste material has been stored for several decades and now large qualities are awaiting to be disposed of. This will take many years and cost many billions of dollars. Much of the radi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-021
Budget: 05/08/14 - 11/10/14

Spark igniter system failures are a leading cause of gas turbine engine removal from aircraft. To insure relight in the event of engine shutdown at altitude, a high-voltage, high-energy spark is required. The igniter is eroded by each discharge, limiting its lifetime under normal operating conditions. Frequent engine startups shorten the igniter...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-017
Budget: 12/02/13 - 12/01/15

This proposed study intends to develop a model and prototype of a flapping winged vehicle through the incorporation of elastic components. This will allow the manufacture of such vehicles with greatly enhanced flight duration and agility. Work will include the design, prototyping, and testing of micro air vehicle wing flapping mechanisms with tu...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-110
Budget: 03/20/13 - 03/15/15

Minimization of blade tip clearance in the high pressure turbine and high pressure compressor is very important for turbine efficiency, reduction of emissions, and lower rotor inlet temperature which extends the service life of the engine. This can result in increased payload, extension of mission range capabilities and lower operating cost. N...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-017
Budget: 06/21/12 - 12/21/12

This proposed study intends to find ways to improve the mechanical efficiency of robotic and remotely piloted flapping winged vehicles through the incorporation of elastic components. This will allow the manufacture of such vehicles with greatly enhanced flight duration and agility. Work will include the design, prototyping, and testing of micro...

Phase 1 SBIR

Topic: 23 D-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

The potential for magnetically confined fusion research to provide a clean, safe and abun- dant source of energy drives the proposed work. The experiment we aim to support and enhance, the Lithium Tokamak eXperiment (LTX) at the Princeton Plasma Physics Lab, has a unique configuration designed to study the key issues of transport and stability ...

Topic: N091-067
Budget: 07/15/10 - 01/14/12

Nova Photonics proposes to design, fabricate, and characterize an optical filter that will be tailored to submarine-laser communication. The filter will be tunable/reconfigurable to operate at a set of chosen wavelengths within the 450 nm to 550 nm range. It will feature a wide field-of-view and bandpass that are optimized to take advantage of s...
