Securing And Fendering For Skin To Skin Replenishment

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: Naval Postgraduate School
Principal Investigator: Basil Blank, VP of Engineering
Award Amount: $68,429.00
RI Contact: Fotis Papoulias
Abstract:
"The current state of the art for roll-on/roll-off ships (RO/RO) transfer in the stream is sea state 3 (winds up to 16 knots and waves up to 5 feet), and many ramps are not certified for these conditions. This proposal includes a conceptual design for aRO/RO Cargo Transfer system between two freely… More

Advanced Fibers, Anti-Friction Materials and Jackets for Navy Ropes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: Cornell University
Principal Investigator: Alex Deyhim, President
Award Amount: $69,793.00
RI Contact: Leigh Phoenix
Abstract:
"This proposal addresses development of a new generation of ropes based on advances in fibers, protective materials and manufacturing. These ropes must be as strong and stiff in tension as current wire ropes, yet be much lighter and more flexible. Newmaterials must be resistant to abrasion, wear,… More

Advanced Fibers, Anti-Friction Materials and Jackets for Navy Ropes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: CORNELL UNIV.
Principal Investigator: Eric Johnson, VP of Research
Award Amount: $494,564.00
RI Contact: Leigh Phoenix
Abstract:
Develop new large diameter, high strength rope that meets the criteria. Identify materials and process to develop the rope. Perform tests to optimize life and robustness when used for winches, cranes or STREAM highline applications. New rope materialswould have many potential commercial… More

Vacuum Windows for Third Generation Syschrotron Radiation Beamlines

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOC / NIST
Principal Investigator: Eric Johnson
Award Amount: $74,346.00
Abstract:
Improving the quality and intensity of the x-ray beam is an important design goal for every synchrotron installation. Although small, the effects of vacuum windows on x-ray absorption and phase contrast cannot be neglected. Synchrotron x-rays have wavelengths on the order of one Angstrom (1 x… More

Bottom Water Temperature and Pressure Sensor with Real-time Readout

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Eric Johnson, VP of Research
Award Amount: $74,188.00
Abstract:
Monitors that are currently used to periodically record bottom water temperatures cannot be read by the lobstermen who use them. In addition, current monitors make no provision for recording changes in depth if they are redeployed in a different location. The specific aim of this proposal is to… More

SBIR Phase I: Passive Sensor for Lifetime Monitoring of Concrete

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Alexander Deyhim, PI
Award Amount: $99,290.00
Abstract:
This Small Business innovation Research Phase I project proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of using a passive sensor, embedded within concrete, to measure moisture, temperature, and concentrations of chlorides. It will provide critical data for evaluating concrete performance starting with the… More

Sensor Package for Bottom Water Environmental Measurements

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Eric Johnson, VP for Research and Development
Award Amount: $288,000.00
Abstract:
Monitors that are currently used to periodically record bottom water temperatures cannot be read by the lobstermen who use them. In addition, current monitors make no provision for recording changes in depth if they are redeployed in a different location. The specific aim of this proposal is to… More

Advanced Detection of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Eric Johnson, VP of Research
Award Amount: $97,457.00
Abstract:
ADC is presenting a new method of nondestructive evaluation/inspection technology that enable the capability to detect improvised explosive devices (IEDs) carried or hidden within motor ve-hicles.

Portable Rescue Jaw and Spreader

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DHS
Principal Investigator: Eric Johnson, VP of Research
Award Amount: $98,020.00
Abstract:
The Jaws-Of-Life is a hydraulic rescue tool used to rip cars apart. They consist of a pair of metal claws that are used to spread/cut/rip automobiles or other metal constructions apart in order to save persons who may be trapped inside. The Jaws of Life were originally designed for race track use… More
