  1. A Portable Vibrio Cholerae Concentrator for Sensitive Pathogen Detection in Water

    SBC: Omnivis LLC            Topic: None

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop an easy to use, inexpensive, and portable bacterial concentrator to enable more sensitive cholera pathogen (Vibrio cholerae) detection. Cholera affects communities across 41 countries, including Mozambique in 2019 after Cyclone Idai and Yemen in 2017. Current methods used to detect the cholera pathogen in water involves a 3 to 5-day procedure due to th ...

  2. SOFTOX FOR STRANDED GAS UTILIZATION

    SBC: Modular Chemical, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Many of today’s oil producers are forced to flare associated natural gas or shut-in wells because they cannot economically bring the gas to market. Natural gas flaring and venting exposes produc- ers to environmental liabilities, reduces potential revenues, and depreciates assets. Initially, this project will focus on a particularly acute problem for many producers—the co-production (with oil) ...

  3. Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO) Coatings as Superior Thermal Barriers for Engine Pistons

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: 13c

    Automobiles (cars and trucks for instance) are the predominant mode of transportation in the United States. These vehicles are powered by internal combustion engines that consume fossil fuels such as gasoline. Improving the efficiency of internal combustion engines is an ongoing challenge of enormous impact to energy consumption in the world. In order to improve engine efficiency and thus fuel eco ...

  4. Electromagnetic Characterization of Advanced Composites by Voxel-Based Inverse Methods

    SBC: VICTOR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: Z11

    The nondestructivecharacterization of advanced composites, such ascarbon-fiber reinforced polymers (cfrp), by electromagnetic means iswell established [6]-[24].  What isneeded to advance the state of the art are sophisticated inversionalgorithms that allow layup and impact damage to be determined inlocalized regions, which means that the more traditional methods ofmodel-based inverse methods ...

  5. Rodent Centrifuge Facility Quad Locker for ISS Life and Microgravity Science Research

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: H8

    According to the decadal report titled, Life and Physical Sciences Research for a New Era of Space Exploration, a Report, "...the AHB Panel would be remiss if it did not strongly recommend an animal centrifuge capable of accommodating rats/mice at variable gravity levels." Furthermore, the panel stated, “...research on animal models will be constrained without the ability to manipu ...

  6. Autonomous Power Controller for Mission Critical Microgrids

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: T3

    PCKA is partnering with researchers at Purdue University to develop an Autonomous Power Controller (APC) for mission-critical microgrids to supply electric power in a highly autonomous and secure manner to accomplish mission objectives. The APC consists of a centralized controller connected to an array of local component controllers. The centralized controller will be capable of optimal generation ...

  7. Optical Device for Sorting Particles by Size

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: NA

    This Phase II SBIR project will continue the development of an optical sorter that will be used to estimate drop sizes in sprays. The optical sorter will determine the size of drops in the 0.1 to 10 microns range. Drops in this size range are prevalent in the automobile industry, where the fuel injection pressures have increased tremendously over the past two decades. These newer injectors provide ...

  9. Low Cost, Power Dense, Axial Gap, Rare-Earth-Free PM Motor for Electric Drive Vehicles

    SBC: Magnetic Power Motion            Topic: 13b

    Cost and size reductions are needed in the electric traction drive system currently used for electric drive vehicles (EDV) to make them cost and performance competitive with fossil fuel vehicles. Such cost parity is critical to achieving public acceptance and expanded market share of EDV products. To achieve cost and size parity, the DoE’s Electrical and Electronics Technical Team has establishe ...

  10. A Reconfigurable Transmitter and Receiver for Aeronautical Telemetry Applications

    SBC: INDIANA MICROELECTRONICS, LLC            Topic: A201

    This project focuses on the development of a reconfigurable microwave transmitter and receiver for telemetry applications. Both the transmitter and receiver are able to operate at any frequency between the L and C Bands. The software defined transmitter is able to change its center frequency, output bandwidth and output power as well as operate with multiple simultaneous output frequencies. The fl ...
