Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 12b
Budget: 04/10/17 - 04/09/19

Energy loss in high-voltage transmission and distribution networks currently costs U.S. economy billions of dollars annually. The development of advanced and high performance electrical conductors is critical to improve efficiency, to lower system costs, and to improve robustness of the US electrical grid. This new type of economical and scalabl...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 12b
Budget: 02/24/16 - 11/21/16

During high-voltage electrical power transmission, energy is lost due to the resistance of the conductors, which is converted mainly to heat. Energy loss in transmission and distribution systems currently costs U.S. economy billions of dollars annually. This drives many efforts for development of a higher efficiency of the power transmission and...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: MI
Budget: 01/01/16 - 06/30/16

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project involves development of a new family of thermally-stable, high-strength aluminum casting alloys for engine cylinder head applications. There is a strong push globally to improve internal combustion (IC) engine efficiency, through down-sizing, turbo or supercharged boost, and through the use...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project involves development of a new class of lightweight aluminum superalloys to replace much heavier cast iron in automobile brake rotors. There is a large market for brake rotors, estimated worldwide at $10 billion. Replacing four cast iron brake rotors in a typical sedan will reduce its weight...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 07B-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Currently, cast-iron is nearly exclusively used for car brake rotors. Replacing cast-iron by a high- temperature, creep-resistant aluminum alloy could translate into about 80 lbs (36 kg) in weight reduction for a typical car, thus improving its gasoline mileage and reducing its greenhouse gas emissions. Current commercial, castable, age-hardenin...
