Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Assembly and Repair of Thermoplastic Reinforced Composites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: John W. Long, Dr
Award Amount: $90,879.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a new method of radiation welding of high performance thermoplastic reinforced composites without degrading the core fiber material. Conventional methods of thermal welding of this type of composite cause degradation of the… More

SBIR Phase I: Polymer Alloy Seal

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: John W. Long, PhD
Award Amount: $92,950.00
Abstract:
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a polymer alloy material and sealing process using high-speed near-infrared radiation welding, to form a waterproof bond in the assembly of proton exchange membrane and direct methanol fuel cells. A key objective of the… More

SBIR Phase I: PMC Manufacturing Process

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: John W. Long, PhD
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will demonstrate the use of a new carbon/epoxy prepeg formulation and tape placement process to produce a polymer matrix composite (PMC) that meets large aircraft structural compsoite specifications. Conventional carbon/epoxy prepeg and… More

Low Cost, Low Weight Composite Structure using Out-Of-Autoclave (OOA) Technology

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Masanori Kubota, President & CEO
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
