Phase 1 SBIR

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

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a Fuel Analyzer for the cement industry. The cement market is predominantly powered by fossil fuel and in many cases they can benefit from knowing the exact composition, moisture level, and BTU of the fuel. By accurately analyzing and characterizing the composition of the fuel,...

Phase 2 SBIR

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

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to develop an on-line analyzer to enable the increased use of alternative fuels in cement manufacturing, and thus reduce energy costs. Cement manufacturing is highly energy-intensive, accounting for a significant portion of fuel use in the world. The rising cost of energy has m...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I aims to develop an on-line measurement device that will allow cement manufacturers to significantly reduce costs, while improving quality. Cement manufacturing is an energy-intensive process that accounts for 6-8% of the world's fuel use. Despite 90% of fuel use occurring in the kiln, no rea...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: IC-2010
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11
PI: Unavailable

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop digital electronics and software with the potential to dramatically improve the measurement performance of lower resolution gamma ray detectors. Whereas high-purity germanium (HpGe) detectors provide outstanding resolution in a variety of applications, from scientific re...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop key components for a lowcost 3D X-ray security checkpoint system based on Laminography, a method of taking multiple projections of an object and combining these to create three-dimensional (3D) slices of the object. Current checkpoint X-ray security systems have limitati...
