Award List:

Novel All-Passive Lightpipe Illumination

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: J. K. Cammack
Award Amount: $69,801.00
Abstract:
This SBIR proposal aims to develop all-passive fiberoptic lighting systems that can be used on long space missions or here on earth. By addressing the traditional problems of concentration and solar tracking in a novel way, we will create a high efficiency lighting system that is also very durable… More

PORTABLE, COST-EFFICIENT BIOMASS CONVERSION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: David Schaafsma, President
Award Amount: $99,988.00
Abstract:
Large-scale pyrolysis of biomass for energy production must aim for high throughput in order to meet economies of scale. For this reason, many of the fluidized bed and cyclonic pyrolysis reactors being developed are designed for throughputs of hundreds or thousands of tons per day of biomass. The… More

Affordable, High-Performance Information Network for Tactical Vehicles

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: David Schaafsma, President
Award Amount: $69,998.00
Abstract:
This SBIR will design and develop a unique high-functionality network for tactical vehicles, leveraging the low latency, high bandwidth and EMI resistance of optical systems with the affordability of electronic networks. The basic system hardware has been developed and is currently used on military… More
