  1. Locking Mechanism for Rotating Seats

    SBC: Kustom Seating Unlimited Inc. (KSU)            Topic: 07FR1

    Research is proposed to develop a locking mechanism for intercity (Amtrak) rotating seats that can be retro-fit to existing seats. Current intercity rail seats, according to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), present a safety hazard to the riding public. Post accident investigations show that passenger rail seats were found to have been uncontrollably rotated even though current se ...

  2. Advanced Truck for High Speed Freight Operations

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 01FR1

    During Phase 1 of the project, Sharma & Associates, Inc. developed a concept for high speed freight truck intended for 70-ton, regular freight and bi-modal operation, at speeds up to 150 mph. The truck uses a rigid frame and an indpendent, compliant, primary suspension for its basic architecture. Constant contact side-bearings and yaw dampers were also added to improve dynamic performance. Vehi ...

  4. SBIR Phase II: Ultra-Fast Software Image Reconstruction for Micro-CT

    SBC: INSTARECON INC            Topic: BT

    The SBIR Phase II project aims to develop a software package that enables rapid image reconstruction for X-ray Micro-CT (computerized Tomography) imaging. Over the last few years, Micro-CT has become a very valuable tool in pharmaceutical and basic research. Current Micro-CT scanners have reached a resolution of 1 micrometer and thus allow high resolution in-vivo and ex-vivo three dimensional e ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Large-Scale Production of Monodisperse Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: NANOINTEGRIS, INC.            Topic: EO

    This Small Business Innovation Research project is to demonstrate large scale capability for sorting single walled carbon nanotubes by diameter and electronic type. Sorting of carbon nanotubes can lead to improved performance in existing applications as well as opening up new applications that require monodisperse properties. The broader impacts of this research if successful will enable the del ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Integrated Ultra-High-Throughput NSOM Probe Based on Nanoscale Waveguide Tip Integrated with Laser and Detector

    SBC: OptoNet            Topic: EO

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is for the technology development of a novel near-field scanning microscope (NSOM) probe with much higher power throughput utilizing an innovative high-refractive-index nanoscale waveguide (nanoWG) as the probing tip. The proposed nanoWG probe can achieve small spot size and yet with tip power 100 to 10,000 times higher than a fiber probe, ma ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Domain-Unified Modeling for Electro-Mechanical Component Libraries

    SBC: SFM Technology, Inc.            Topic: IT

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project proposes a framework to support product development, analysis, and decision making in multi-domain engineering environments through domain-unified product models. Ad hoc and even formal (standards-based) product data models, subject to the need for multiple views and attributes to support domain-specific application requirements, suffer from ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: Solid-State Fan

    SBC: Thorrn Micro Technologies, Inc.            Topic: EL

    This SBIR Phase I research project will demonstrate the feasibility of designing a solid state fan with performance characteristics that are superior to the conventional, rotating blade fans or centrifugal blowers that are typically used in conjunction with heat sinks. The goal is to develop an ion-drag type fan that is lower in cost, noiseless, an order of magnitude smaller in size and weight, mo ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: Chemical Aerosol-flow Synthesis of Nanometals

    SBC: UT Dots, Inc.            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project will develop new scale up methods for the synthesis of surface stabilized metal nanoparticles from aerosol. The advantage of chemical aerosol-flow synthesis is in its simplicity in procedure and experimental setup, low cost and scalability. The method allows for the synthesis of high quality nanoparticles in continuous flow regimen. Phase ...
