Phase 1 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 19b
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

The DOE has identified the need for Blanket and Safety Technologies for fusion power systems. This includes plant level tritium management, containment, and safety tools and systems development. Currently, tritium compatible pumps for these systems are extremely limited. Traditional technologies, such as pistons, do not have the life and reliabi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 29
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

Today's cryogenic pumping consist of two vastly different options. The most common, are centrifugal turbopumps with an impeller-inducer combination which rely on high impeller speeds to create pressure. While the high speed makes them more compact, it also limits life. In addition, the impeller design leads to high flow dependence on differentia...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-024
Budget: 05/26/16 - 11/22/16

The US Navy has identified an autonomous vacuum system as a key component to eliminate maintenance of current shipboard vacuum insulation systems. Currently, maintenance costs around $550,000, with an integrated autonomous vacuum system, this cost can be avoided.Vacuum system of this nature already exist, leak detectors and mass-spectrometers ut...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BC
Budget: 11/15/15 - 10/31/17

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is in Organic Rankine Cycles for distributed solar power generation at micro scale and will offer a cheaper alternative to solar photovoltaic (PV), with a payback period of just 4.5 year without government incentives. The use of solar therm...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy
Topic: DE-FOA0001380
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

We propose a novel high efficiency (≈40%) generator system capable of providing 1 kWe along with hot water on-demand. The integration of two novel concepts: 1) an internal combustion engine (ICE) operating on Spark-Assisted Compression Ignition (SACI) combustion of natural gas (NG), and 2) a bottoming Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) with waste ener...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BC-2013
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project addresses the current need to develop a small scale organic rankine cycle (ORC). While ORCs have been used extensively in industry for waste heat recovery for larger systems (10kW and above), there has been little advancement in the private sector for smaller ORCs used for distributed solar...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-H2.01
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

The innovation is a compact, reliable, light weight, electrically driven pump capable of pumping cryogenic liquids, based on scroll pump technology. This pump will fulfill several needs stated in SBIR Research Topic, H2.01: Cryogenic Fluid Management Technologies. Zero gravity cryogenic control devices (spray bars and mixers), require cryogenic...
