Award List:

An Integrated Turbine Generator for Low Head Hydropower

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: David Torrey, Dr.
Award Amount: $99,650.00
76196-The use of hydropower as a renewable energy resource could be significantly expanded if low-head systems could be exploited. Recent low-head (

Quiet, Efficient, High Power-Density Integrated Motor/Propulsor (IMP) and Controller

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: David A. Torrey, Principal
Award Amount: $69,910.00
An innovative integrated motor/propulsor (IMP) system is proposed that will improve the power density, efficiency and reduce acoustic signatures over existing designs. Gains in power density will be achieved by reducing the required motor torque in combination with motor structures that improve… More

Permanent Magnet Motor (PMM) Based Steering Gear for DD(X)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: James M. Kokernak, Principal – (518) 289-8020
Award Amount: $1,949,625.00
The technical objectives of the Phase II effort are to develop a form, fit, and function specification (FFFS) for steering gear based on permanent magnet motors. A review of available motors will be undertaken in parallel with application-specific design to determine the most practical realization… More

High Speed Compact Vaneaxial Fans

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Edward Kirchner, Senior Engineer
Award Amount: $99,994.00
We believe the following improvements are possible in vaneaxial fans: efficiency through improved fan blade design, coupled with the freedom to operate at speeds substantially higher than 3600rpm; reduced size by operating the fan at higher speed allows s

Hydroelectric Energy from Wastewater

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Edward Kirchner, Mr.
Award Amount: $100,000.00
There are a large number of opportunities for extracting energy from flowing streams of water. Many of these streams are manmade. As an example, more than 15,000 publicly owned wastewater treatment facilities operate in the United States. These facilities process in excess of 34,000 million… More
