58 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Lawrence Livermore National Lab

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: DTRA16A-001
Budget: 09/23/16 - 04/25/17

This program will demonstrate how additive manufacturing technologies can be used with reactive and high energy materials to create rapid and flexible fabrication of payload and munitions. Our primary approach to this problem will be to use powder bed binder printing techniques to print reactive structures. The anticipated feedstock will consi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S4.04
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

Makel Engineering, Inc. proposes to develop a high temperature, radiation hard electronics sensing architecture for a high temperature chemical sensor array suitable for measuring key chemical species in the Venus atmosphere. The previously developed Venus Microsensor Chemical Array (VMCA) consists of sensing elements which can operate in a 500 ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A2.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

Makel Engineering Inc. (MEI), proposes to develop flight capable chemical microsensor arrays for in-situ monitoring of high temperature bleed air and turbine exhaust in jet engines. The proposed chemical sensor probes will be a new class of on-board engine instrumentation for real time monitoring of engine and bleed air system operation in flig...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.07
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

Makel Engineering, Inc. proposes to develop a low cost, UAV based microsensor array payload for monitoring volcanic processes such as plume vents and hot lava flows. Microsensor arrays, each consisting of four to eight high temperature sensors for species such as OCS, HF, HCl, NOx, CO, SOx, CH4, H2O, O2, and CO2, will be packaged with electroni...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Commerce
Topic: 8.3.5
Budget: 05/29/16 - 11/29/16

The team of Makel Engineering, Inc. Fifth Gait Technologies, TruWeather Solutions proposes to develop a novel, high sensitivity, fast response, solid state, electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor for use in small UAVs which is capable of PPB level atmospheric measurements. The sensor is based on a thick film multi-element potentiometric micro se...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H10.01
Budget: 04/28/16 - 04/27/18

Makel Engineering, Inc. proposes to develop a miniaturized Multi-Species Chemical Microsensor Instrument suitable for real-time, in situ measurements of hydrogen, oxygen, water vapor and mixture thermal conductivity for monitoring purge effectiveness in cryogenic propellant lines. Helium is a scarce, strategic and non-renewable natural resource...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-023
Budget: 07/08/15 - 03/28/16

ABSTRACT:Makel Engineering, Inc. and the University of California at Davis propose to develop an Orthogonal Air Quality Sensor Suite (OAQSS) which combines single species solid state chemical sensors with a miniature ion mobility spectrometer (IMS) to monitor oxygen levels and a wide range of potential contaminants. ?In addition to chemical spec...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H10.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

Makel Engineering, Inc. proposes to develop a miniaturized Multi-Species Chemical Microsensor Instrument suitable for real-time, in situ measurements of hydrogen or methane, oxygen, water vapor and mixture thermal conductivity for monitoring purge effectiveness in cryogenic propellant lines. Helium is a scarce, strategic and non-renewable natur...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.07
Budget: 05/15/15 - 05/14/17

The rapid expansion of available UAV types and increased mission capability (payload, flight duration, and system cost reductions) offers wide range of potential applications. The Airborne Chemical Microsensor System (AMS) instrument package being developed adapts low cost and low power chemical microsensor technology which has been demonstrate...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-S1.07
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Makel Engineering, Inc. (MEI) proposes to develop a miniaturized Airborne Chemical Microsensor Instrument (ACMI) suitable for real-time, airborne measurements of trace carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and methane for use on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs.) The potential of UAVs to carry instrument packages to support atmospheric science has bee...
