Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.06
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

Energy Research Company (ERCo), in collaboration with CoVar Applied Technologies, proposes the development of high throughput, compact, and lower cost spectrometers that can exceed the performance of much larger and more expensive spectrometers. This performance gain is achieved through the use of computational imaging technology. Because the te...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 33a
Budget: 06/08/15 - 03/07/16

Energy Research Company ERCo), in collaboration with the Safeguards Science and Technology Group at Los Alamos National Laboratory, proposes the development of a monitor of fuel rod integrity in spent nuclear fuel storage casks that utilizes spectroscopic measurements. Currently, dry storage casks are the only storage option for spent nuclear fu...

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-14-071
Budget: 12/01/14 - 11/30/15

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Energy Research Company (ERCo), in a collaboration with The City College of New York (CCNY) and Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC), proposes developing the Vulnerable Plaque Amplified Optical Analyzer (VPAOA): a fiber optic catheter instrument based on patented amplified spectroscopy technology for det...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 21C-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

Energy Research Company (ERCo), Savannah River National Laboratory, and Los Alamos National Laboratory propose the development of a new sensor for tracking radioactive material during nuclear fuel reprocessing. Reprocessing spent nuclear fuel has significant safety and environmental advantages over the current predominant practice of storing t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 21 C-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

Energy Research Company (ERCo), together with Los Alamos National Laboratory, is developing a new laser-based sensor for improving the safety and efficiency of spent nuclear fuel reprocessing. In commercial-scale nuclear fuel reprocessing facilities there exists a stress between the operator and the inspectorate that results from an attempt to b...
