Award List:

Development of Low Cost, High Tensile Strength Composite Materials and Connection Systems Utilizing Thermoplastic Matrix Composites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Christopher M. Edwards, President
Award Amount: $92,736.00
Abstract:
Many items of both commercial, military equipment and infrastructure require materials with high tensile properties combined with resistance to corrosive environments and other environmental factors. Today these applications are typically made in steel with the attendant problems of corrosion… More

SBIR Phase I: Adhesive Systems for High Performance Sandwich Panels

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Christopher M. Edwards, MS
Award Amount: $97,691.00
Abstract:
This SBIR Phase I project will focus on the development of a thermally activated cross-linkable thermoplastic adhesive film. Although many thermoplastic adhesive films are available, none are capable of being cross-linked as they are applied. The addition of the cross linking functionality will… More

Development of a low cost thermal storage system using a novel Phase Change Material for use with solar thermal and waste heat recovery systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Christopher M. Edwards, MS
Award Amount: $193,400.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Project will develop a thermal storage system combined with solar thermal heating and waste heat recovery allowing energy to be accumulated throughout the year to be used when needed in winter. The use of a new phase change material as the energy storage… More

Development of High Strength, High Fatigue Wind Blade Spars

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Christopher Edwards, Mr.
Award Amount: $99,970.00
Abstract:
The size of the latest generation of wind turbines is outstripping the capabilities of the materials and techniques used to manufacture them. As wind turbines are made larger to improve efficiency, composites with improved mechanical properties and long tern performance are required to avoid… More
