10 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BC-2010
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of using manure from cattle and hogs to make bio-diesel and, in so doing, reducing the environmental impact of releasing untreated or anaerobically fermented manure. The rich mineral content of feces generated by concentrated animal feeding operations...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: San Diego State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N09-T034
Budget: 06/29/09 - 04/30/10

Menon and Associates, Inc. (MAA) proposes an innovative method enabling aerobic fermentation of abundant, local, non-food, cellulosic feedstocks to produce biofuels. The method also solves the glycerol waste problem by recycling it into the feedstock, thereby increasing process efficiency at the same time as reducing waste. It converts not onl...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-119
Budget: 09/22/07 - 03/22/08

Contaminants left on surface of a composite part during repair leads to poor quality bond. Dirt, oil, marking materials, grease, release materials, solvents, other organic and inorganic chemicals, cleaning material residues, biologicals from environment, grit from sanding and metal particles may remain. Menon and Associates is proposing to de...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-262
Budget: 07/21/05 - 07/21/07

Fiber-reinforced polymer prepreg materials are supplied in the form of tape, tow and fabric. During the cutting and lay-up processes, some of the backing material (release film) remains on the prepreg. Composite parts manufactured using such prepreg materials can fail since the backing material prevents a good bond between individual plies. ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: H-SB05.2-001-2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

Emergency responders require a hand-held instrument in the field for screening specific sites for biological threat materials. In Phase I we will complete a design for an instrument, called MENTOR, which meets the needs and specifications of the emergency response teams. Innovative methods will be used to test electronic and software modules to ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-901
Budget: 08/30/04 - 02/28/05

Menon and Associates, Inc. proposes to develop a new explosive-detection system. The system will support site searches by enabling rapid collection and analysis of particulate samples, revealing prior explosive handling in the area. The system will thus reveal clandestine preparation sites for explosive devices such as IED's, car bombs, and su...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will fill a critical need for accurate location and depth measurement of undersea fiberoptic cables. This program will builds on prior expertise in ultra-sensitive magnetic susceptibility detection in the human body. The susceptometry technique provides the high signal-to-noise ratio...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N01-026
Budget: 12/17/01 - 12/17/03

Magnetic resonance technology has been proven successful in detecting contaminants that affect the quality of composite fiber reinforced resin prepreg materials. The technology can measure changes in prepreg properties as well such as resin content variations and aging of resin. The prepregs are used in manufacturing aerospace composite struct...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N01-026
Budget: 03/07/01 - 09/07/01

Fiber-reinforced polymer prepreg materials are supplied in the form of tape, tow, fabric, etc. During the cutting and lay-up processes, some of the backing material (release film) remains on the material. Composite parts manufactured using such prepreg materials can fail since the backing material prevents a good bond between individual plies....
