Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II research project will develop a novel radial magnetic field actuator for fully flexible electromagnetic automotive engine valves. Electromagnetic valve actuators are rapidly emerging as the technical solution for improved emissions, fuel consumption and greater engine performance. Dramatic ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD04-EP5
Budget: 12/03/04 - 12/03/05

The objective is to develop lightweight voltage step-down equipment to be used in vehicle power distribution systems, with particular emphasis on the DD(X) and CVN(X) programs. Conventional 60Hz power distribution transformers are large and heavy. The Navy seeks a smaller and lighter replacement technology. The voltage level and operating fre...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A00-079
Budget: 01/11/02 - 01/11/04

STOP THE SATURATION!! That is the message from the entirety of the technical literature regarding solar magnetic disturbances (SMD) and electromagnetic pulse (EMP). These phenomena produce a quasi-DC current in the earth that enters the power transmission system via ground-induced currents (GIC). This current saturates power transformers and ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A00-079
Budget: 01/12/01 - 01/10/02

There is a demonstrated need to protect power lines from disruptions to the Earth's magnetic field which can induce currents in the electrical conductors of such communications systems and pipelines. These disruptions can be caused by high altitude detonation of nuclear weapons or by solar activity. These geomagnetically-induced currents (GICs...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-091
Budget: 03/30/00 - 03/30/02

The innovation presented in the proposed research effort is the design of a direct dirve, high performance, low cost, light weight, zero backlash, low friction, force feedback joystick with very high bandwidth and very high reliability. This high performance joystick will be designed utilizing a two-degree of freedom sperical motor for use as t...
