Phase 1 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 13a
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

One of the key recommended research activities in a recent DOE development roadmap for next generation CSP plants (CSP Gen3) was to develop an in-situ molten salt composition/chemistry monitoring system. In-situ, real time, online monitoring is the first step in carefully controlling the salts’ composition which is key to achieving thermal perfo...

Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
Topic: 14-NCER-4B
Budget: 03/01/17 - 02/28/19

Small drinking water systems consistently provide safe, reliable drinking water to their customers; however challenges of such systems include; lack of financial resources, aging infrastructure, lack of scale, and technical/logistical challenges associated with regulation compliance. The deployment ofnew cost-effective monitoring technologies ho...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A13-023
Budget: 09/26/16 - 09/25/17

Sporian proposes to continue development of a wireless sensor suite for rotorcraft Generator Control Unit (GCU) and Main Power Relay (MPR) health monitoring. This sensor suite will monitor the GCU for changes in component characteristics (e.g. resistance of relay contacts), temperature, vibration extremes, voltage surges, and other factors tha...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-073
Budget: 09/22/16 - 03/21/17

The Abrams turbine engine (AGT-1500) is currently suffering from an issue in which the compressor stalls, creating a surge event that causes significant damage to the fourth stage of the low pressure compressor There is a need for a viable system for measuring the early onset or precursors of rotating stall in real-time on an operational turbine...

Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 32k
Budget: 08/01/16 - 07/31/18

A commonly noted sensor need for nuclear power systems is flow sensing in the various heat transfer mediums and to monitor medium velocities and characterize mixing and/or cooling. This is particularly needed for small modular reactors designs where coolant flow is driven by natural convection, not by pumps. Such sensors must be able to tolerate...

Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 20b
Budget: 08/01/16 - 07/31/18

There is a present and growing emphasis on reducing or maintaining the water use footprint in the energy sector. One of the requirements for effectively managing water is monitoring through reliable, real time, measurement based data of water quality/composition within treatment systems and bodies of water associated with power generation facili...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 32
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

Static power generation systems are needed that can be lightweight, robust, high-temperature and operate at efficiencies of 15 % or greater in radioisotope thermoelectric generator (RTG) applications. Among the potential candidates to address these needs, thermoelectric generators (TEG) offer the promise to convert thermal energy from a radioiso...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 18
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

Problem that is being addressed. Technologies are needed that can improve the operating costs and efficiency of gas turbines. Multifunctional components need to be economically manufactured that can withstand the harsh environments of gas turbines while enhancing structural integrity. Ideal manufacturing techniques will decrease weight, be readi...

Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A1.07
Budget: 04/26/16 - 04/25/18

Current engine control architectures impose limitations on the insertion of new control capabilities due to weight penalties and reliability issues related to complex wiring harnesses. NASA in collaboration with Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) has been conducting research in developing technologies to enable Distributed Engine Control (DEC) archit...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 19a
Budget: 02/15/16 - 11/21/16

Terrestrial models of carbon stock and flux rely on detailed parameterizations using trait data to represent vegetation processes in a given ecosystem. Hyperspectral optical characterization (350-2500 nm) can quantify many of these parameterizations at both leaf and landscape scales. Traditional aircraft and large-payload Unmanned Aerial Systems...
