Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 11b
Budget: 07/31/17 - 07/30/19

Currently, radon represents a serious health risk within the United States. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that radon causes more than 20,000 deaths per year in the US, and is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. Radon mitigation is typically performed using constant ventilation. However, these inefficient ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-073
Budget: 09/02/16 - 03/01/17

Prevention of blade failure in gas turbine propulsion accounts for a significant percentage of the development and operational costs of a gas turbine engine. Decreased availability for the warfighter, shortened time between overhauls, and increased need for spares are all associated with premature compressor and turbine blade failures. In this...

Phase 2 SBIR

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

As new applications arise for supercritical CO2 (sCO2) power generation, and higher efficiencies are achieved through higher system pressures and temperatures, the need to improve technologies becomes essential. Traditionally lubricated and cooled oil bearings cannot tolerate these temperatures, and the higher pressures makes keeping the oil sep...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 15
Budget: 06/13/16 - 12/12/16

Developing a hydraulic turbine generator that can convert flow at low pressure (head) from existing sites into useful electricity on a cost-effective basis. The United States possesses a significant renewable resource in low head hydropower. Idaho National Labs (INL) surveyed over 500,000 low head hydro sites. Of the 500,000 sites, 130,000 sites...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 11
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

The problem is twofold: 1) The EPA estimates that radon causes more than 20,000 deaths per year in the US, and is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking1. Furthermore, as new “tight” construction increases radon risk unless mitigation technologies are employed. Mitigation technologies have been proved effective. The EPA estimates ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-198
Budget: 02/08/16 - 02/05/18

ABSTRACT: Many turbomachinery applications have achieved improved availability, reliability and cost savings by incorporating health monitoring systems to determine the mechanical condition of key components in near real time. The goals of any health monitoring system are to ensure reliability by avoiding unplanned maintenance, to reduce operati...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-007
Budget: 09/16/15 - 09/15/17

To advance the Automated Warhead Characterization System (AWCS), an innovative yet practical technology solution for NAVAIR, MSI proposes to perform Phase II of the AWCS SBIR project. By providing expanded and enhanced data acquisition capability, significantly reduced turnaround time, and streamlined operation for the end user, MSI?s AWCS techn...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-059
Budget: 08/04/15 - 04/29/16

ABSTRACT:Significant gains to engine performance are achievable through the development of advanced cooling designs in blade and vane airfoils in order to allow higher turbine inlet temperatures. Correspondingly, reductions in maintenance costs can be achieved through higher confidence evaluation criteria for such cooling designs. In this effort...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

As new commercial applications arise for supercritical CO2 sCO2) power generation, and higher efficiencies are achieved through higher turbine inlet pressures and temperatures, the need to improve component technologies becomes essential. Traditionally lubricated and cooled oil bearings cannot tolerate the higher temperatures, and the higher pre...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-007
Budget: 05/22/14 - 11/21/14

Warhead characterization is performed to better understand the damage mechanisms of a particular warhead from synergistic blast and/or fragment effects. This is especially important to assess the potential for collateral damage. Therefore, MSI is proposing the development of an advanced optical Large-scale Arena Warhead Characterization System (...
