470 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of North Texas

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 10a
Budget: 02/21/17 - 11/20/17

High-temperature and radiation resistant complex concentrated alloys will be developed for Generation IV nuclear reactor systems. These low activity alloys with high creep strength, good weldability, swelling resistance, and resistance to hot corrosion will contribute towards longer service life and easy post service recycling. Experimental allo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 10b
Budget: 02/21/17 - 11/20/17

SiC is an excellent material for fusion reactor environments, including first wall plasma facing materials and breeder-blanket modules. It is also being considered as structural elements in Small Modular Advanced High-Temperature Reactor (SmAHTR) because of its low-activation, temperature resistance, and radiation damage tolerance compared to mo...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of North Texas (UNT)

Agency: Army
Topic: A16A-T002
Budget: 08/29/16 - 05/26/17

Friction stir additive manufacturing (FSAM) will be utilized for repair, fabrication and processing of Titanium components and sub-assemblies for high performance military applications. The innovation will address the issue of part distortion resulting from high residual stresses imposed during traditional fusion welding based additive manufactu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: DLA161-002
Budget: 07/12/16 - 04/11/17

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project addresses the need for lighter weight brake materials that will allow for longer lifetimes with improved performance. Certain ceramic materials have demonstrated the potential to meet these objectives if their mechanical properties could be improved. It is proposed that this be achieved ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N152-092
Budget: 09/29/15 - 03/31/16

To induce controlled defects in wire feed E-Beam additive manufacturing for making NDT standards, MER will work with Applied Optimization (AO) to develop a Physics based ICMSE based process model of defect formation which captures the influence of closed loop control parameters of power, build temperature, wire feed rate and deposition path. Thi...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD12-T01
Budget: 07/09/15 - 09/22/17

A critical step in the extraction of elements from ore, especially rare earth elements that are found in complex minerals, is separation. Froth flotation is a highly versatile method for physically separating particles based on differences in the ability

Phase 1 STTR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 32f
Budget: 06/08/15 - 03/07/16

Advanced fabrication and manufacturing methods like additive manufacturing that can produce nuclear quality components are required for the success of the Small Modular Reactor SMR). Most typical AM processes utilize fusion of a min molten pool generated continuously via CAD processing that produces a cast type anistropic microstructure that ha...

Phase 1 STTR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 20a
Budget: 06/08/15 - 03/07/16

Fossil fuels FE) are projected to remain the mainstay of energy consumption and energy generation well into the next century. New technologies including advanced material manufacturing must be developed to promote the efficient environmentally sound use of Americas abundant fossil fuels FE). Additive manufacturing AM) has the potential to red...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Northwestern University

Agency: Army
Topic: A12a-T026
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

This project will complete development of a viable, cost-effective industrial production technique for producing ultrastrong, flexible and tough carbon fibers composed of double-walled carbon nanotubes (DWNTs) and of a small amount of a polymer, based on a continuous manufacturing process. This will be done by refining MER?s innovative technolog...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N131-001
Budget: 10/09/14 - 04/15/16

In the Phase II of this program, work will be focused on producing controlled solidification investment cast (CSIC) articles with net shape, complex, narrow, long, and curved channels within an aluminum alloy article representing military gearbox housing. The program has strict requirements for the materials and techniques used to produce the ch...
