Award List:

NANOFIBER NONWOVEN BASED AIRCREW PERSONNEL LOWERING DEVICE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Larry Dickinson, President/CEO
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
Nanofiber nonwoven spunbonded materials technology is adapted for use in a personnel lowering device. The resulting device will be simple, easy to use, and relatively low cost.

STTR Phase I: Light-Weight Bio-Based Nano-Enhanced SMC Formulations

Research Institution: North Carolina State University
Principal Investigator: Larry C. Dickinson, PhD
Award Amount: $150,000.00
RI Contact: Dale Batchelor
Abstract:
This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project will employ a multi-component nanofiber spinning approach to develop a high-strength and high-modulus polymeric composite fiber, using the latest available islands-in-sea spinning technology and innovative spinning process… More

STTR Phase II: HIGH-STRENGTH LOW-COST FIBER VIA MULTI-COMPONENT NANOFIBER (MCN) SPINNING

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: Clemson University
Principal Investigator: Larry C. Dickinson
Award Amount: $489,506.00
RI Contact: Philip Brown
Abstract:
This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase II project has the overall objective of developing a multi-component melt spinning approach to produce a new family of high performance fibers using standard low-cost polymers. The new high-strength and/or high-modulus polymeric fiber is… More

Modification of Natural Fibers for use as Reinforcement in Advanced Composite Materials

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Sean Walsh, Principal Engineer – 919-949-1256
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project is focused on the development of a chemical treatment for bast natural fibers called "In-Situ Polymeric Coating (IPC)". An IPC coating will enable kenaf, flax, jute and/or other bast natural fibers to replace fiberglass in… More
