Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-015
Budget: 08/29/16 - 02/28/17

The US Army is requesting the development of a ballistic shock-load resistant ElectroThermal-Ignition Pulsed Power Supply (ETIPPS) capable of withstanding up to 300 Gees of acceleration. This dynamic motion is sourced from the recoiling action of large caliber weapon systems (e.g. 120-140mm tank cannons) onto which the ETIPPS is to be mounted. ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Florida State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T009
Budget: 06/08/16 - 12/05/16

In this phase I we propose to extend our work on MVDC isolation device to include fault detection, and fault localization circuitry. We have previously developed under an SBIR a 6 kVDC, 2000A isolation device that was built and tested in MVDC ship distribution system laboratory at FSU CAPS. In this phase I we propose to use rogowski coils and ha...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N131-040
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

The objective of this SBIR topic is to develop an affordable and compact Point of Use Conversion (PUC) module for 60 Hz to 400 Hz and 270 VDC power converters for shipboard applications. In phase I we demonstrated that our approach of using SiC solid state switches to increase the switching frequency in order to reduce the size, weight and cost ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A13-043
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Airborne obscurants are used to modify electromagnetic wave propagation between a potential target and a posed threat or observer. Current developments in nanoparticle production methods enable precisely engineered obscurants with nanometer level control over particle size and shape. Modeling studies predict an order of magnitude increase over c...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A14-022
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The application of magnetic fields in processing metals and alloys has shown the potential to alter grain boundary kinetics, modify phase diagrams, as well as lower sintering and heat treat temperatures. The resulting property improvements have not been realized with current conventional methods. However, detailed studies to understand the mech...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N131-040
Budget: 06/19/13 - 12/19/13

Currently 400 Hz power systems onboard US Naval ships use centralized and redundant frequency conversion, whereby 400 Hz power is generated in centralized locations and is then distributed to numerous loads located throughout the ship. This distribution system approach leads to the placement of large and expensive frequency converters onboard th...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 11B-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

There is a great demand for high energy advanced photons in many fundamental scientific disciplines and applications like undulators. Magnets based on PrFeB chemistry are most suitable for cryogenically operated undulators. Prior to our Phase I project, there were no development efforts for a United States manufacturing base for PrFeB magnets....

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N103-226
Budget: 05/25/12 - 05/25/13

In this Phase II, we will develop and test a prototype of a compact, high speed circuit isolation device for medium voltage DC applications. The prototype will have a minimum power density of 30 MW/m3, an opening speed of less than 1 ms, an endurance of 5000 open/close cycles, a current of 2000 A, and a voltage of 6000VDC. The prototype will be ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N111-074
Budget: 03/28/12 - 10/15/13

Electromagnetic railguns are transitioning from single shot lab guns to a weapon system firing 6-12 rounds per minute. The cables that supply the railgun current from the power supply must also make this transition. In Phase 1, we designed, built, and thermally tested a flexible cooled coaxial cable for this application. In Phase II, we propose ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 11 B-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

There is high demand for tunable X-ray undulators in modern synchrotron light sources. While PrFeB based magnets are most suitable for cryogenically operated permanent magnet undulators (CPMU), there are no development efforts or a manufacturing base for PrFeB magnets. We will develop PrFeB based magnets of higher remanence and better coercivit...
